    Raymon Carter, age 24, pleaded guilty on September 16 to the federal crime of rioting on April 27, including the arson of the now infamous Baltimore CVS that was at the center of the unrest after the death of Freddie Gray in police custody. “Anyone who considers participating in a riot should know that police, prosecutors and citizens will track them down and send them to prison”, U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein said. As part of his plea agreement, Carter faces four years in prison and will be required to pay restitution.

    An independent commission in the state of Missouri has released what it calls the "people's report" on the issues that it concludes ultimately led to riots last year after a Ferguson police officer killed unarmed Michael Brown. In nearly 200 pages of recommendations and conclusions, the commission not only targets police departments and court systems, but it analyzes broader societal and generational issues that the authors say must be addressed to make the state "stronger, fairer" for everyone. Among the issues addressed, the commission cites inequalities and "unconscious bias" at schools, and hunger throughout the state, where more than one...

According to a press release put out by Ferguson, all defendants will be given new court dates with alternative penalties like payment plans or community service. Those caught for minor traffic violations should be less likely to end up behind bars because of McCullin. Under the new policy, they won't...

The effort, launched today, involves personnel from the FBI, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the U.S. Marshals Service and the Secret Service, with two agents from each agency directly embedding with the Baltimore police department’s homicide unit, acting police commissioner Kevin Davis said Sunday. The collaboration, which Davis dubbed “B-Fed,” comes after two people were fatally shot in Baltimore...

The request seeks to prevent defense lawyers from making public any discovery material they receive in the run-up to the trial. Discovery material, which legally must be turned over to the defense, includes evidence, witness lists and other information. Prosecutors said they want to avoid what they called unfair pretrial publicity, which they largely blamed on the defense.

    The night of the riot, if that's the right word, the staff at the Everyone's Place bookstore stood outside on North Avenue, just to make sure nobody got the wrong idea. The soul food restaurant across the street was shuttered and untouched, but looters were ransacking the pharmacy next door. A boy said let's burn it, and Ayyana Malik had to remind him that fire would spread and destroy the bookshop too. Some call the recent Baltimore riots an uprising. Others think it achieved little and damaged the community, but many more African-Americans in this segregated city say it was...

    On the 50th anniversary of Daniel Patrick Moynihan’s famous report on the breakdown of the black family in urban ghettos, Baltimore has descended into the tragic violence and chaos he predicted. In a report titled, “The Negro Family: The Case for Action,” Assistant Secretary of Labor Moynihan, warned that the deterioration of the black family, would result in soaring crime rates if it continued unchecked. In the most famous passage of the 1965 report, Moynihan, who would later become a Democratic U.S. senator, wrote, “From the wild Irish slums of the 19th-century Eastern seaboard, to the riot-torn suburbs of Los...

    The Department of Justice has threatened various local police departments with lawsuits unless they adopt the federal government's ideas about how police work should be done Possessing an incredible amount of perspicacity, Thomas Sowell is always a “Best Bet” to come up with logic by the tons when confronted with a sticky situation. Defining the effects of the recent marauding of American cities couldn’t be analyzed and dissected by anyone any better than the good Doctor of Economics Thomas Sowell. In his June 2, 2015 column Paying the Price, he covers the question in the above headline in magna cum...

    Marilyn Mosby, the state’s attorney prosecuting 6 Baltimore police officers had no concerns over speaking out on her evidence on a national stage, but now wants to deny the public access to the autopsy performed on the late Freddie Gray. What is she hiding, and why? She is doing an excellent impersonation of a young and inexperienced prosecutor way over her head, as she also seeks more time to respond to defendants’ motions, keeping them in limbo and without means of support, while her office with over 200 attorneys available, claims it is unable to respond in the normal amount...
  • Rite Aid says personal information, prescriptions stolen in Baltimore looting (175,000 units)

    As looted prescription drugs flood Baltimore streets, fueling a surge in violence, pharmacy chain Rite Aid warned customers Wednesday that their personal medical information could be on the streets, too.. Store officials said the labels on prescriptions stolen during the late April riots included patient names, addresses and the names of medication, but not other sensitive data such as Social Security numbers or credit card numbers. The alert nonetheless raised concern among privacy advocates who said the information could be used for fraud. Rite Aid has hired a risk management firm to help protect customers from identity theft. The risk...
  • Obama’s DOJ tells Police Officers to STOP CHASING SUSPECTS to Prevent Police Shootings

    How interesting. Obama’s DOJ would apparently like America to just be overrun with criminals who think they can do whatever the heck they want, because, hey, Obama told the cops not to bother chasing them, because we have to reduce police shootings? Hell no: The Washington Post decided to investigate and come up with a tally of all the police involved shootings for 2015, apparently to not only answer the burning demands of the public, but to pick apart the data and draw some conclusions. I was expecting a deafening volume of hyperbole out of this report – and there...

    Hundreds of individuals who came from across the country to participate in the riots in Ferguson, Missouri after a police officer shot cigar thief Michael Brown during a physical altercation, are complaining that they are owed backpay by Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment (MORE). “We were promised $5,000 a person per month for keeping that town in the news,” complained Ward Burns, one of 500 protesters bussed in from Boston, Chicago, Columbus, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Nashville, Portland, Tucson, Washington, D.C., Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and other cities. “We need to get paid.” MORE is funded by left-wing billionaire George...

    Thanks to last month’s riots and looting, which were advocated by many corners of the #BlackLivesMatter movement, more black people are dying in Baltimore as a result of massively reduced police patrols and criminals feeling more emboldened. The city is currently undergoing its deadliest month in 15 years, with a 31-year-old woman and a young boy becoming the 37th and 38th homicide victims. “It’s so bad, people are afraid to let their kids outside,” Baltimore resident Antoinette Perrine Perrine, whose brother was recently shot, told CBS. “People wake up with shots through their windows. Police used to sit on every...

    Baltimore's $20 Million Federally Financed Riots 05/28/2015 Accountability: After encouraging rioters to lay waste to Baltimore, the city's mayor now says she's confident she can get Uncle Sam to pay for the damage. What is this, the new age of federally financed riots? One month after the race riots that trashed Baltimore, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said that the city would apply for a $20 million Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) grant to replenish the "rainy day fund" being used to pay for cleanup and police overtime costs in the wake of the mayhem that she herself is on record as...

    Langermann’s of Baltimore LLC has filed for bankruptcy after the recent unrest in Baltimore knocked the restaurant’s finances too far out of balance. The Canton restaurant, which opened in the Can Company building in 2009, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on May 20 in U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Maryland. The restaurant is open and the owner says he has no plans to close it. Dave McGill, a partner in Langermann’s, said the restaurant had struggled with cash flow problems, but the protests, riots and curfew following the death of Freddie Gray exacerbated those issues. The restaurant owes...
