Police Scrutinized After Baltimore Arrests

Baltimore Police 1

ATLANTA (AP) — National outrage over the death of a black man while in police custody and the speed with which a prosecutor decided to charge the officers who arrested him could have a chilling effect on law enforcement — at least in the short term while passions are running so high. SOURCE

OK, I admit it, sometimes I just don’t understand all of the reasons WHY things happen the way they do, this is one of those times. 

The initial coroner’s report came out and THIS was the story; Freddie Gray not injured during arrest, head struck bolt in back of van and in a very short time State’s Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby charged the driver of the van with second-degree murder and the other officers with offenses that included involuntary manslaughter, vehicular manslaughter, second-degree assault, false imprisonment and misconduct in office. The officers were taken into custody Friday and released on bail. Six Baltimore police officers charged in Freddie Gray’s death.

I am not one to throw around a lot of *racist* accusations, that’s not my immediate reaction, but I have to wonder; is this a case of blatant RACISM on the part of State’s Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby, her supporters at City Hall, ie; an incredibly ignorant Mayor named Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, and God only knows how many other Black officials in Baltimore?

It can’t be racism, can it? Three of the arresting Officers happen to be Black themselves, and one just happens to be a Black female. Who are the officers charged in the Freddie Gray case? - Baltimore Sun. Wouldn’t that negate any chance of a claim of ANY kind of racism? 

Surely the Black Officers didn’t abuse *Da Brother* did they?

Now, I pose this; as stated in the original story, what happens when Officers begin to hesitate in the course of doing their duty? What happens when the Police all over this nation are hesitant to act against *less than deadly* thugs simply because they, the Officers, fear the intense scrutiny and 2nd guessing that they can and will face in the actions they took.

I have long contended that IAD, Internal Affairs, and various shooting boards, both Departmental and Civilian, have days, weeks and months to evaluate the actions of an Officer when said Officer had less that a second to act on the threat being faced in the field when risk death or serious injury is the possibility of inaction because they did hesitate as they consider the FUTURE ramification of their action.

We don’t live in a perfect world, hindsight is, as they say, 20/20 and gives the observer a lot of advantages when analyzing a decision made in a split second.

What happens when our Officers get to a point where they aren’t willing to do the job, serve a public that, for the most part, hates their guts? What happens when those professionals say ‘to hell with it’ and walk off the job, either in anger or frustration and leaves the public at the mercy of street thugs, ghetto rats and every other criminal element in this nation?

Who is going to stop *the bad guys* then?

The Thin Blue Line is being stretched to the limits, Police Officers in Baltimore are being offered up as a *human sacrifice* by a City and State that have Black, Liberal FAILURES running them, when do the Officers of Baltimore do the unthinkable and walk out with a terminal case of The Blue Flu?

    I am retiring in two months, after 41 years in LE. I know that the future trends in LE are such that I would not be interested in conducting work. I am uninterested in having a camera up my ass 24/7, and I am uninterested in becoming a robot, which will be the result of cams. People think cams are an instant panacea; I suggest they will not be. Further, doing the job itself is becoming infinitely more difficult and complicated. Nope. Done. Did my bit for God and country. Time to take care of me and mine now, and everyone else is on their own. Folks: you are about to get the kind of LE you deserve; Sharpton and others wish to completely federalize police. Good luck with that.

    And wait, having the police reflect the community — wasn’t that supposed to “solve everything?” Baltimore is a reflection of its community. But apparently that isn’t the solution. Huh. I find myself stunned at the realization.

    Here’s an instance where the cop having a body cam was a good thing. The first part of the video is a news report and after seeing that, you would think the cop will be going down. Then, is the body cam video which shows the firefighter is a blatant liar.


    If I were a cop, it would be very hard today to answer a call involving Blacks. I’d be in a no win situation as no matter what happened, if someone complained, I would be in the wrong. God forbid I had to draw my weapon to defend my life or the life of others as I would be crucified not only by the media but also by the Feds. Officer Wilson was proven completely innocent but no apologies by Obama or Holder for what they put him though.

    Please help me to understand this situation better:

    In Baltimore, a city with black politicians at all levels, black police officers on the force, black officials in charge of the black officers on the force, and black officers on the team that arrested Freddie Gray, the consensus is that the WHITE man, the WHITE officers, and the WHITE leaders allowed this - no, MADE this happen?

    What ever happened to personal responsibility, and accountability for actions? What part do Freddie’s own actions take in this fiasco? With all due respect, I don’t think the prosecutor had enough time to evaluate the coroner’s report (is that complete already? kinda quick, wasn’t it?) and make the life-altering determination that all six officers are culpable for Gray’s death. In fact, it is my suspicion that she may have acted a bit prematurely, in equal parts to placate a mob of thugs calling for blood and to keep the race divide BS stirred up, but that’s just me.

      I am glad I retired after 28 years… I am estactic that my son is in another line of work after serving 8 years it is not worth going to jail after being sacrificed over some ignorant scumbag….

      The consequences of any black criminal killed by any white police officer will be overlooked and the officer most likely sacrificed…this is the world we live in today…all created with the past 6 years by Hussein “White Man” hating Obama and Eric Holder… of course that’s just an opinion..

  4. The Right Handed Cowboy says:

    Thank You Fred for having the intestinal fortitude to speak what many others only think about… it’s the truth whether or not anyone wants to believe it….

    Between Obama, scumbag Sharpton and Holder they are in the process of dismantling the American Justice system.. …GGod help us.

    I would like to comment-but my current mental state would lead me to say things too strongly (IF that is possible in this instance). So I will just add “ditto” to the story and all of the previous comments…

    All part of the plan. Bring in the federal police force that is being quietly trained as bo’s brown shirts. I think anyone who would call that a conspiracy theory will be surprised when the unthinkable happens. WE THE PEOPLE are witness to a takeover by the progressives. It may not be successful, but, the chaos will alter our way of life for a long time. Pray for our republic and the patriots who will support it. Good post Fred.

    Chief Batts prior to Baltimore was the chief at my neighboring city across the county border, Long Beach California. He had the mentality of Los Angeles County’s Sheriff Moonbeam Leroy Baka. (You can look up the Japanese word Baka and laugh if you want.) Batts brought that baggage over to Baltimore. He kissed up to the mayor by letting her tie his hands when responding to the dimwits rioting and looting businesses. And now, the clowns cry out the black officers are nothing more than an aunt Jemima and uncle Toms. To top it off, they say the mama bear who smacked some sense into her cub on live TV is a hero only to White America and that she should be prosecuted for child abuse.
