Posted on 04/27/2015 12:28:50 PM PDT by kristinn
The University of Maryland, Baltimore and numerous downtown businesses closed early Monday, citing concerns about potentially violent activity in the area.
Lexington Market, a city courthouse and businesses including T. Rowe Price and Venable LLP said police warned them of large gatherings and protests downtown.
According to widely circulated flier, a high school "purge" was to take place at 3 p.m., starting at Mondawmin and ending downtown.
Such memes have been known to circulate regularly, but today's has led to bolstered police presence around the city.
The flier includes an image of protesters smashing the windshield of a police car this past weekend after a march spurred by the death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old man who died earlier this month after being arrested by city police, turned violent and destructive.
A post on the University of Maryland Baltimore's website said that the closure was prompted by a recommendation from city police. The campus will also stop shuttle service.

Black racism is a terrible thing.
“Purge” seems like a new word. The kind of thing you do when you don’t want to admit what you are really doing: rioting and vandalism.
Actually, the origin of the word came from a movie in which “The Purge” is a governmentally approved set-aside window during which killing is allowed without consequence.
Pretty much sums up the present situation.

In history, religion, and political science, a purge is the removal of people who are considered undesirable by those in power from a government, from another organization, from their team owners, or from society as a whole. A group undertaking such an effort is labeled as purging itself. Purges can be either peaceful or violent; with former often resolved by simple removal from office, and latter with the imprisonment, exile, or deaths of those purged. Restoring people who have been purged is known as rehabilitation.
Purge? They want a Purge in Baltimore? So do I. Go for it. Purge the whole damn city into a smoldering pile of ashes.
The elderly white victims here are doing their part to give the violent gangsters and looters of Baltimore more space.
They had better stay downtown, because if they enter the burbs and start harassing armed citizens, they will pay the piper...
“The Purge is a governmentally approved set-aside window during which killing is allowed without consequence.”
I had forgotten that, which is the exact road the Baltimore mayor is taking that city down. Personally, I think it is long past time to break out the fire hoses if not something stronger. That always brings up images of the long past democratic south, but they gotta do what they gotta do.
Aim center mass.

“Purge” should be countered by “Target Practice.” Ought to work out nicely.
I guess Balmore is going to give up on the “Charm City” thing.
A Model Proposal”:
The school should automatically award bachelors degrees in “Critical Race Theory” to all minority students who participate in the looting and destruction.
That way, the new baccalaureates can be eliminated from the campus in just a few short months, and they can have a degree on their resumes when they go looking for jobs.
Pretty soon, no employer will accept a new hire with a B.A. in “Critical Race Theory” from any school, with the result that colleges offering degrees in this subject will be unable to attract students and will have to close, which is the best outcome.
More than 20 arrests in 8 years. If he was 25 that means just his adult arrest record.
