Ahhhhh. Shows slightly different on my phone. I only see the top right pic of the hood cluster.
So far, a 7-11 has been raided and ransacked. Multiple vehicles damaged including LEO vehicles. A commuter was pulled from her vehicle and it is unclear what happened to her. Multiple vehicles damaged with occupants.
The news keeps saying peaceful protest. But the protesters are throwing anything that isnt bolted down including metal barriers. The Oriole game is to finish up real soon and the city is still locked down. Protesters blocking streets etc.
More destruction in the "peaceful protests" in baltimore. Multiple officers hurt from anything that can be thrown. This is disgusting. Started at Mondawmin Mall and is moving toward the city. Mostly kids and some adults.
I'm torn. On the one hand, I am so sick and tired of the animals rioting every time there's some perceived slight, even when they are proven to be in the wrong (M. Brown).
On the other hand, it is obvious to me that the police are out of control, and need to have a few more punished for the excessive force used on a routine basis. This isn't a few isolated instances, as Brain has so clearly established in the hero cop thread.
Meanwhile, the politicians are lying and cheating their way to riches while the rest of us slave away for stagnant wages. Time for a revolution.
No, not at all. I grew up next to a police officer (we have our own force in this town). He was very proud of the fact that although a very good shot, he had never had his service pistol drawn in anger.
What a ****** disaster. The cvs was set on fire. Oriole game postponed. The gov has put the national guard on alert but that might get roadblocked by the mayor. The "protesters" are going block by block destroying any business they can access.
