I don't begrudge anyone their right to say whatever they want. I just come at this thread from the totally opposite point of view from most of the posters. Most of you don't care about Baltimore, you

Anyone reading this thread knows my point of view. I think a number of police officers essentially ended the life of a man who wasn't breaking any laws, and need to be held accountable for that crime.

Yes, that is an oversimplification, and likely also a mischaracterization.    People aren't arguing that environment doesn't have a large influence on your life.  Most people are arguing that they're

This mayor is in way over her head.

I get the feeling that being in charge and having to actually figure out how to deal with the realities of inner city struggle, racism, crime, etc. is not her strong suit. Seems like she'd much rather be on the other side of things and going on TV talking about the injustice, etc.

Can we put this into dollars per looter?

How much money worth of stuff has the top looter stolen?

How much money worth of stuff has the average looter made off?

I'd say $5,200 for the top dog and $78 for the average looter.

I knew a property owner in North Long Beach who made a ton of money after the L.A. Riots because all of his crap buildings were burned down. Later on there were rumors that he paid looters to do it.

Trust me when I say that not every landlord that loses a building tonight is that unhappy about it.

This isn't prime commercial real estate in Baltimore projects?

See, here's the thing. If enough of it is destroyed...then it could be.

Tough call since so many people wouldhave a really tough time transporting decent stolen goods anywhere in this mayhem.

I hope these cops at least get overtime.

That's why they are taking their time - milking the OT.

Somebody should run down to the CVS and get some beach chairs

Seriously. How long would it take them to get up? Criminals! Stop it... Stop it... Stop it.

She might be very competent at dealing with all of those issues. Dealing with a riot, however, is something else altogether.

People were hitting the mall before, they prob have a Zales or something and someone prob grabbed something of good value.

Tough to let loose the hounds on your own constituency.

Hopefully they are focusing on high traffic areas with convenient access to the interstate.

The cops should just leave and let them thugs destroy each others stores, cars, and homes. And then they can clean their own #### up.

That's pretty much what they've done. And it's incredibly stupid.

And most of the people who own stores, cars, and homes there aren't participating. So your comments are unfortunate.

At least she let that pastor know that the cause of the fire in his church is "under investigation".

I wonder if the people protesting the cops will get pissed enough at the rioters burning their city down to actually request that the cops step in and stop it.

Hands up, don't shoot... except maybe for that guy that just burned my house down.
