Baltimore Residents Blame Lower Police Presence For Increased Crime Rates

Baltimore Residents Blame Lower Police Presence For Increased Crime Rates

Be careful what you wish for?

Remember the Baltimore riots, the attacks on police officers and their cruisers?  Over the summer, I noted that the businesses that were damaged or destroyed during the 2015 riots were suing the city and police department for failing to protect their property.

Baltimore residents are now blaming the lower police presence for the increased crime rates in Baltimore.

NPR reports:

For the third year in a row, Baltimore, Md., has had more than 300 murders, reaching a new record of murders per number of residents in 2017.

Some residents attribute the high murder rate to relaxed police patrols in the city following high-profile cases of police brutality. Officers have backed off in neighborhoods, like the one where Freddie Gray was arrested.

The Rev. Kinji Scott, a pastor in Baltimore who’s held positions in local city government, says the opposite needs to happen.

“We wanted the police there,” Scott says. “We wanted them engaged in the community. We didn’t want them beating the hell out of us, we didn’t want that.”

5 cops were shot in Colorado. 1 was killed. However,there’s no legal insurrection article on this. This is the case at legal insurrection whenever a cop killer is white. This one is named Matthew Riehl.

Here’s his bio and pic.

Liar. LI doesn’t cover every news story in the world. Nor does it cover every cop killing; if you want that go to Blue Lives Matter. But when there’s something to discuss it is covered, without any regard whatsoever to the races of the perpetrators or the victims.

PS: Fuzzy, is calling m1 a liar OK?

    LOL, Milhouse, I hereby with all the authority vested in me declare it okay to call m1 a liar in this particular instance.

    That said, M1 is clearly a leftist loon and un-savvy troll, likely funded by Soros (you should see the comments from M1 we don’t allow!).

    M1, as Milhouse correctly notes, we are not a news site, we are a blog. We have no investigative journalists, and we don’t provide breaking new for the most part. We don’t, for example, cover every cop killing by minorities, either.

    That said, if this person turns out to be an unhinged/unstable leftie or a supposed “white supremacist” Nazi, the former being the most likely, we’ll probably get around to covering it on Tuesday.

      If I’m a liar,please prove me wrong ? Please show when legal insurrection did a story on a cop killed by a white cop killer? This goes to you as well Milhouse.

      I see you nor Milhouse haven’t been able to show where LI has done articles on white cop killers,in order to prove that I’m a liar. Some very interesting things have turned up on Matthew Riehl. These things I have spoken about since this bogus war on cops tagline started. However,”pro police people” such as yourself as well as other “pro police people” on other site and “blogs” would rather do articles on Kaepernick. Kaepernick never hurt one police officer you constantly write about,but the Matthew Riehls,Andrew Bices,Ian Howards,Hollis Daniels,Larry Darnell Gordons,etc that actually kill cops SILENCE.

Unless you’re a criminal, the cops weren’t beating you. So you’re saying you want the cops there, but you don’t want them using any force on the criminals who are destroying your lives. So what are they supposed to do? Just walk around and look pretty?

    Regarding your last sentence: the community “leaders” and the aldermen of Chicago want that exact thing in Chicago.

BLM got what it wanted? Bravo for them. Till Trump was elected, Police were standing down, and avoiding confrontations.

Hopefully, for them, the number of black criminals that are shot by white cops, will increase greatly in 2018. We can all get behind that.

    As well, of course, as the number of white criminals shot by black cops, purple criminals shot by green cops, and spotted criminals shot by paisley cops. Neither the criminals’ nor the cops’ appearance is at all relevant.

      If that were true why was Black cop Joseph Walker the ONLY cop subjected to mostly negative comments here?

      PS.
      Please don’t say it was because he shot an unarmed person. Michael Brelo and other white cops shot unarmed people and they were supported here at LI.

      You left out black (Somali) cops shooting white women who did nothing to warrant it and so far is getting away with it.

“We wanted them engaged in the community. We didn’t want them beating the hell out of us, we didn’t want that.”

I notice he mentioned nothing about “law enforcement”.

“Baltimore residents are now blaming the lower police presence for the increased crime rates in Baltimore.”

Forgive my language, but; “No shit, Sherlock!” Who knew that vilifying your police department, attacking them physically and verbally and making the job so bad that many of them said; “To heck with this!”, then decided to leave for greener pastures.

After what the cops put up with I am amazed they didn’t loose more of their force.

Attrition will eventually take its toll.
