    Baltimore mayor fires police commissioner

    BALTIMORE – The Baltimore mayor fired the troubled city's police commissioner Wednesday, saying that a recent spike in homicides weeks after an unarmed black man died of injuries in police custody required a change in leadership.

    Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake thanked Police Commissioner Anthony Batts for his service — and praised the job he had done — but said growing criticism of his leadership had become a "distraction" that was preventing the city from moving ahead.

    The numbers back up that scenario. From April 19 to the end of June, there were 80 homicides in Baltimore, nearly double the 42 committed during the same period last year, according to an NBC News analysis of city crime data through the first half of the year. By comparison, there were 53 homicides during that period in 2013, 48 in 2012, and 45 in 2011.

    There is a similar pattern among shootings. There were 171 people hit by gunfire between April 19 and the end of June, up from 77 in 2014. The year before, there were 103 during that period. In 2012, there were 77, and 88 in 2011.

    Of the 154 murders so far this year, more than half occurred since theApril 19 death of Freddie Gray, who succumbed to injuries suffered while riding in the back of a police transport van. His death triggered looting and rioting and resulted in charges againstsix police officers.

    Let's neuter the police department to save our own political careers and then fire the commissioner when the crime rate inevitably soars.

    Genius. :facepalm:

    Obungo wants to discredit local police forces so he can form his "civilian security forces" to "stop crime". Don't laugh, he's got AT LEAST* a year and half of unchecked destruction left

    *if you know what I mean

    Well it seems like the mayor finally figured out it is head of the Police Department. The whole Mayor incharge of stuff escaped this one. Whats going on in the behind the scenes must be a comedy. I think the Mayor was going for more Presidential in her approach to management.

    Whats required here is a riot for improved policing. That should do the trick.

    That murder yesterday was a doozy.

    Two vans pull up and shooters jump out of each van to gun down four people on a corner. Three dead with one in the balance.

    What black guys have vans? Was the mayor consulted by this gang as she was during the riots? The gangs were getting TV time and all sorts of accolades for how they ran the riots.

    NONE! I think youre onto something here. Maybe it was the police. An Il State Rep. said the police are killing blacks and making it appear its black on black.


    State Rep. Monique Davis (D-Chicago), " “I’m going to tell you what some suspicions have been, and people have whispered to me: they’re not sure that black people are shooting all of these children. There’s some suspicion – and I don’t want to spread this, but I’m just going to tell you what I’ve been hearing – they suspect maybe the police are killing some of these kids.”

    I think it's fairly obvious what's going on here and no one seems to want to talk about it. You know what? I'm going to because someone's got to. This isn't the "republicunts" or the "democraps". It's all a ruse. A ruse perpetrated by some seedy underground criminal organization (let me save some of you the time by giving you stereotypical substitutions: NAACP, Obama, "THE LIBURLS!", black people, white people, The Man, and the Jews). Me? I suspect the Penguin and his thugs are "hatching" a plan to take over the city. This may be a possible attempt to unmask the notorious vigilante only know as the "Batman" that we've been hearing so much about. I have my suspicions about the closeted billionaire playboy Mitt "King Cracker" Romney. I'll be picking up the New York times in a week or so to have my suspicions validated. Oh, and black people.
