Child Shot, Man Dead After Fireworks Celebration; Police Look For Person Of Interest

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — It was supposed to be a night of fireworks and fun to celebrate Independence Day, but instead a man was killed, an all-out brawl broke out and a little boy was shot.

Mike Hellgren explains outrage is growing over crime in Baltimore City.

New video shows the large police presence as officers tried to calm the crowds.  Several fights broke out at the Inner Harbor during the fireworks.  One occurred as “God Bless America” played from the loudspeakers.

The brazen violence claimed one life.  WJZ obtained a mug shot of Joseph Calo, a 26-year-old from Alabama, who died after he was stabbed in the neck with a bottle.  Police released a photo of the prime suspect in his killing.  It happened near McCormick and Schmick’s.

“These people who engage in these terrible and senseless acts of violence are cowards and we’re not going to tolerate their cowardly behavior,” said Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake.

Chaos also erupted at Light and Pratt streets, where a 4-year-old was shot in the leg with a stray bullet.

“We had incredible deployments down there and literally feet away from where this incident occurred,” said Police Commissioner Fred Bealefeld.

Police say the camera located at the intersection did not capture any part of the shooting.  Detectives did not recover any shell casings, either.

Police say they made 30 arrests and handled 20 curfew violations.  There are fears the violence will have a chilling effect on tourists.

“Most people are out here for a good celebration and to have something like this, most people won’t come back next year,” said Joseph Young.

Police are still evaluating whether they could have done anything to prevent the mayhem.

“This is absolutely ridiculous.  People come down to the harbor to enjoy themselves,” Rawlings-Blake said.

If you have information on any of these crimes, you are asked to call city police.

    Until the American people speak up this will continue. All races are responsible for these actions. Some people look for an excuse for violence and prey on the law abiding citizens. It happens every day in the malls around Baltimore. Gangs looking for easy marks. The only time these thugs will bother someone is when they have you at a complete disadvantage( six or seven of them against a family). Build more prisons(sorry liberals) and use the Mega Millions profits for these prisons instead of using it for the MD Stadium Authority.

    1. cam says:

      you really think al races are responsible. You definately walk around with blinders on……

    2. ColtRedState says:

      All races?????

      1. JOEL GOODMAN says:

        YES ALL RACES THAT ARE BLACK AND BROWN

    3. Get your head out of the sand says:

      By your logiic, black on black violence is caused by all races- you’re entering a battle of wits unarmed.

    4. Ben says:

      You are either blind or in severe denial………….

    5. IllinoisJoe says:

      All races, my butt. Where are the whites? The asians? The jews? Hell, I can’t even see any hispanics.

      It is the blacks. It is ALWAYS the blacks and you KNOW it,
      EVERYBODY knows and understands that FACT.

      What I don’t understand are people willing to pretend otherwise so as not to hurt the feelings of the garbage committing the violence.

      Tell the truth:

      The problem is that 80 percent of them never met the trash that impregnated their mothers and don’t even know who they were. Fathers aren’t necessary when the govt pays deadbeats to spawn. Generations of damn near entire races on the dole between affirmative action, welfare, and the prison system…

      and when some of them DO man up, break out of the BS “victim” status, and live their lives responsibly they are spat upon as “Uncle Toms” and “not really black”.

      After all, “books is for white people”, right?
      Betta to be a gangsta pimp, yo.

      1. Injun Joe says:

        That about sums it up. The media thinks that this is still the 1970s when they still controlled what people found out about situations like this. Then they could spin it how ever they wanted.

        That’s not the case anymore and never will be again. We know exactly what’s going on and who’s responsible.

      2. Ashley G. says:

        could not have said it better myself !! Noone wants to see it for what it REALLY is ! baltimore has turned into nothing but a zoo, right along with the animals that live here ! get a group of black people together, and a group of white people together, and see which group would have fists flying, knives out and guns shooting, i BET MY LIFE ON IT that it would be the black group first. granted, its not ALL black people, but we are talking about baltimore here, the numbers of uneducated blacks speak for themselves ! uneducated, ghetto, no respect for anyone or anything ! yep, thats baltimore for you !!

      3. Maki says:

        Accurate comment.

      4. Sidney Snow says:

        see you took it to far saying us black people you really did see that’s why there was segregation. Because you people don’t no how to talk to people. you r ignorant to think that the Jews and Hispanic r going to coincide with you r u crazy. you really need to grow up nd watch your mouth because one day your going to say that around the wrong person and i hope i pray that they knock you unconscious i pray for talking about black people like that. we did nothing to you and hear you go putting our name in your mouth if you dont have nothing to say good about black people then dont say anything at all.

      5. Russ F says:

        Nice com back Sidney Snow. Instead of using reason to defeat Illinois-Joe, you resort to physical violence. I could explain to you why “might makes right” is inherently flawed, but I doubt, based on the context and grammar of your comment, that you’d understand it.

      6. IllinoisJoe says:

        Ah, sidneysnow… Thank you for showing that you are EXACTLY the type of useless vile garbage I described above. At least you admit it.

      7. Q says:

        First cant blame black people. Lets look at the pasty faces who allow guns to enter this country. There are no gun factories in Baltimore. Second not forget that a ex-military Jew attacked a high school kid which is a miner. Third Hampton is one of the most racist areas in Baltimore. Unfortunately. my high school was located there and we where called n*****s and attacked because THEY didn’t want us there. This has been going on for many years. Lastly you live in Illinois commenting on a incident in Baltimore,MD and honestly all this racist talk you are talking, white people would have even attacked you.

    6. Mad Max says:

      They look like obama voters to me….

      1. Rockatansky says:

        More like the civilian army Barry promised.

      2. Get your head out of the sand says:

        They look more like the civilian army Barry oromised.

    7. Machismo says:

      “It’s really these maniacs with guns” No it is Criminals with guns. Thugs that should be locked up. My heart goes out for the 4 year old that got shot. The Police do need more men, but the Sports GOD is strong in the Metro Areas, and in the worst economy in 40 years still talk about tax payers building stadiums for the Rich Owners. Let the Owners build their own business, and building to run it like the rest of us! Hire more Police, less Stadiums and waste.

    8. Germsweeper says:

      95% of black and white violence is black on white. Granted, blacks commit crimes against themselves but that’s because whites know better than to stray into the inner city. If they did, they’d be victimized daily. I see these outbursts weekly in the news and it’s never been white people…ever.

    9. Jack Kinch(1uncle) says:

      Our prisons are full of democrats. We need mor prisons.

    10. LoL says:

      arm the populace

      1. Finbar says:

        The poplulace are quite capable of arming themselves. Oh, excuse me. I forgot, this is Maryland.

    11. Mike says:

      While all races may commit crimes, I assure you these events were committed purely by blacks. I was across the street when the fight broke out near East Baltimore Street and there wasnt one white or asian in that whole mob. They were all yelling, bouncing around and screaming like a bunch of animals. And they wonder why they live in the Ghetto.

    12. bruce brinkmann says:

      I lived in Memphis while it was under the rule of King Willie Harrenton. One look at the mayor of Baltimore answers volumes here, War zone.

    13. David says:

      Black or white, why or why not, our culture is done. Irrepairable as status quo. I’m guessing civilization as a whole isn’t far behind. We don’t need empty speeches from empty over-paid suits, we need Jesus to come back and set it right.

    14. StandUp says:

      I agree with you, Take a stand America! Do something. A Neighborhood watch, something! Start up a group. File reports with the police when you see things. Secure your neighborhood. I’ve been working on mine for months now, people do come around and start pitching in. Face it, 20% of the people do 80% of the work. Why not let that be you?

      [W]e have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion…. Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    15. Will says:

      Wow! So much hate! To all the white people who don’t understand the violence, imagine if you grandmother or grandfather could have been tarred, feathered and lynched for walking down Pratt St with a book… how evolved do you think your mother and father’s behavior would have been? and how enlightened would you be? Simple huh? If you take books away from people for 400 years and then give them 50 years to read without teaching them how?… Grow up and get some empathy… Start looking at the world as it really is… It amazes me how many educated whites have no large scale historical awareness.

      1. sbpdl3 says:

        We didn’t take away black people’s books, we gave them written language. There were no indigenous forms of writing in sub-Saharan Africa. Look it up on google. You are the one who has know large scale historical awareness, a typical defect of liberal thinking. White people (and Asians) are seen as easy prey to these animals, so when you turn a corner in Baltimore and run into a pack of “teens” listen to that feeling of danger, and get away from them. Groups of black males traveling in packs that large are nothing but trouble waiting to happen, and it isn’t racist to not want to get assaulted, robbed, or caught in a gang related crossfire.

      2. kt says:

        Really Will?

        Do you really believe all the violence in your community is being caused because of what happened over a 100 years ago, 50 years ago, 25 years ago, 15 years ago???

        There is doubt racism exist in this country. But that’s not what is putting guns into your hands. It’s the idea you can do whatever you want and somehow the racism is to blame. The white man doesn’t pass a gun law. The white man doesn’t do enough back ground checks. Its always someone’s fault but your own.

        If you don’t ever throw the crutch of “racism” or “poor”, you will continue to live the way you do.

      3. bill says:

        Will, Get over it!!!! Stop talking about 100’s of years ago. We today had nothing to do with that. Grow up

    16. bill says:

      I am also sick of the violence. I am not sure of what it will take to stop it but something has to change. All black problem maybe not, but for sure most of it is. The inner harbor area is not a place to this to be taking to have the freedom to act before the violence happens. It is not hard to spot the ones who are just out looking for trouble and the police should not have to be afraid of being politically correct or profiling. They should be able to use their own common sense and question who the think may be a problem. Most of what is happening is young blacks with the idea that everybody is afraid of them. The police should have the right to stop and question any group of 4 or more. If they have no money and are just hanging around the inner harbor area they should be asked to leave and if they don’t have them removed and locked up and let the parents come to and get them out at a cost. Why do we have to wait until some innocent person gets hurt or killed. This area is a big tourist attraction for the city and lots of revenue is going to be lost if we do not get this under control.

  2. james says:

    I don’t understand , people acting like depraved animals . I truly feel sorry for those who call Baltimore “home” and act like responsible citizens .

    1. Cindy says:

      I am so glad I moved away from here this year. It is truly sad for the children that cannot escape this city.

  3. Cheryl says:

    How sad is it that the only way people know how to deal with conflict is with violence. Maybe a conflict resolution course should be a graduation requirement since the parents don’t seem to be able to teach their children how to deal with problems. Violence is never the answer…innocent people get hurt, the problem isn’t resolved and more problems are created. How can anyone think this is a good idea???

    1. Jeff says:

      Lol- you think these people would use lessons from a course in situations like this, yet alone TAKE a course? Please. They’re barbaric.

      1. Jeff says:

        Let me correct myself- “people”.

      2. KENYAN STEALS WHITE HOUSE says:

    2. RC says:

      Great idea except the graduation rate in Baltimore is so low that most people still won’t take the course. I am sure these thugs are among the dropouts.

    3. Hazel Burke says:

      Sorry Missy but they ain’t dealin’ with conflict they’re causing it.

    4. Chris says:

      “…a graduation requirement since the parents…”

      LOL. Plural. As if their were two parents in a black “family”.

      1. Chris says:

        Sorry, I meant ‘there’ instead of ‘their’ there. ‘Been living a ’round B’town too long.

    5. NEO CON JOHN says:

      Welcome to the Real World Cheryl,
      Conflict resolution, lol
      This is exactly why these criminals do what they do, because of bleeding heart libs like you! All these punks know is brut force,an eye for an eye. period!
      So go ahead and call me a right wing nut,whack job or what ever you want,
      because it will be ME, or someone else with my values that will come to YOUR aide when you finally become a victim of these animals.

    6. Omega 13 says:

      Sweetheart, what color is the sky in your universe. You think violence doesn’t solve anything? Wrong. It solves everything. It is all these animals understand.

      How can I think this is a good idea? Simple. A bunch of thugs or the safety of my family. Thugs lose. Messily.

    7. Noumenon says:

      Cheryl, you’re cute and would make a perfect liberal,.. safe in your little thoughts and pretend solutions. That’s the way liberals look at things,… let’s social engineer out the problem. A course in manners will solve this? Are you serious? Blacks deplorable situation is due to liberals astonishing naiveté and replacing accountability with victimhood, all so you can convince people, look at me I’m not a racist, I understand the black mans plight, their victims,…

      It’s your fault.

    8. Caiden says:

      Cheryl, I’m not going to make fun of you but I don’t think that will work. Where and how did they learn to use violence as NOT just a way to deal with a problem bt also as entertainment and sport? It wasn’t tv, tv has been pretty sanitized. Let’s be honest the black community exists without people being able to comdemn negative attitudes.

      For decades the idea was black crime and poor decision making was the fault of everyone EXCEPT the people doing them. This just made the problem worse because it made the next generations of thugs thing they really were justified in being thugs.

      A simple course will not help. See, you’re a decent person. You think everyone is decent. You think a lifetime of bad choices with a single parent and a ‘stop snitching’ culture can be taught away in a few classs.

      I don’t see a real solution. Learn to defend yourself as cilivization crumbles, the liberals and Democrats will make everything like Detroit, where a select few have power and protected from the majority who are angry violent but still happy with the barest of substanence. Personally, I think that’s why the entertainment industry demonizies the suburbs, because that’s where the white flight escaped to when Detroit went to hell. If productive people are to ashamed to leave a dying city they can still be taxed while they’re being mugged and raped in the cities.

  4. mo says:

    Im sadden over the fact that I couldn’t go out and have a good time in this city. You can’t even go out without hoodlums flooding the streets with their gang violence. When will the violence stop?

    1. TheDuke says:

      Move to a state with shall-issue concealed carry and a no-retreat doctrine; thugs behave when they have to play victim roulette — which is part of the reason for the Second Amendment.

      1. Jeff says:

        I agree. I move to West Virginia next week- thank GOD!

    2. Tim Martim says:

      When will it stop? When the authorities realize that some people can never be civilized. Start enforcing the death penalty for killers, physical castration for rapists and child molesters and severe sentences in real prisons (not the country clubs we have now), along with real restitution for the victims.Also standardize the sentences – black, white, rich or poor – the sentence will be the same – no plea bargains – no special deals. .How about taking the possessions of the criminals (cell phones, fancy cars, stereos, gold jewelry, etc.) and selling it to get restitution to the victims. Maybe if the criminal actually lost something of value he would wise up and not risk doing the crime. I feel sorry for all the good people in Baltimore both black and white. The black community has to start raising their children properly. They have to get off the “government plantation” known as welfare. They have to start valuing education and hard work.I grew up in a mixed neighborhood in the late 50’s and early 60’s. All of the black friends I had came from a hom,e with a mother and a father. All of the fathers worked. When I played at their homes it was no different than the way things were at my home.What happened? More books and less toys in the home would be a good start. However, when “mom” is 14 or 15 years old this is hard to accomplish. The solution is not more programs for the “disadvantaged”. The real solution is families who actually care about their children. I feel sorry for all of the kids who are stuck in bad situations. It is truly sad but it seems wherever a crowd of black people gathers for an event there is trouble. There have been shootings at parades, playgrounds and even family reunions. The solution is in the black community. I know most black people would like to stop the violence because it mostly affects them. I have talked to black co-workers and they all agree. They want these bad apples out of their communities too. They have to work with the police to identify and remove the cancer that is killing the black community.It is not about black and white. The cities are going to die if the situation is not brought under control. People will not come into town and attend events if they think they may be harmed or killed.

      1. Bob Smith says:

        It won’t stop. Did Africa stop?

    3. NEO CON JOHN says:

      When you and others like you stand up and get involved on what happens in your own neighborhoods, even if you DON”T have kids, you need to be involved with those in your area just so they as well as YOU can put a name to a face and know you both live in the area and are both interested in the well being of the neighborhood. It is the disconnect that the left has created between us all that allows this to happen.
      NO ONE,NO ONE WANTS VIOLENCE IN THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD, NOT EVEN THE GANG BANGERS!

  5. troy says:

    Well people thats Baltimore for ya.Its like that for every event baltimore has from carnivals,festivals,parades.we cant never come together to enjoy something nice.And i already knew people was going to act a fool on the 4th Downtown of all places.

  6. Raven says:

    “MD Stadium Authority” where did that come from?

  7. Alex says:

    “How sad is it that the only way people know how to deal with conflict is with violence. Maybe a conflict resolution course should be a graduation requirement…”

    Unfortunately this isn’t traditional “conflict,” this is people going out looking for trouble and looking to hurt others. The social culture in this city is diseased, and until that changes, Baltimore won’t change. All of the responsible people Baltimore was able to attract back into the city over the last ten years and all of the responsible people who have been here all along have a greater and greater reason with every passing year to leave, and to take their tax dollars with them. A huge part of the problem is that those in positions to change all of this seem to lack the will and courage to do so. Everyone is instead consumed with making excuses. The sad fact is that Baltimore will not change.

    1. Jeff says:

      It will only degrade and implode. At this rate, it’ll be history long before December 21, 2012.

      1. Chris in NC says:

        It could be November of 2012. Next election, should Obama lose, will set of riots like we haven’t seen since the 60’s…

      2. Jeff says:

        Wouldn’t surprise me. Wonder how their Obama “change” has been for them.

      3. Jack Kennedy says:

        obama brought the ganstas upon America…….. now America must take out the trash

        when obama goes, the gangstas must go, also

    2. Key Qi says:

      It’s changing sidewalk by sidewalk. Have you seen Charles Street? It’s almost crime-free.

      Certainly not fast enough, but there are people who are getting together planning to fight back and standing up for the block they live in. Of course, some are liberals who think they can accomplish this without a gun….

      1. Judy says:

        They can build as many new buildings as they want and scrub as much blood off the sidewalks as they want but the problem will still be the PEOPLE. A kid getting SHOT and a man STABBED TO DEATH happened in what is supposed to be the SAFEST area of the city with tons of new development and cops. Sorry, you’re WRONG!

      2. TJ says:

        Have you seen North Howard? One street does not mean it is changing.

      3. sans culottes says:

        Hopkins Student carved up last year by gangsta and grrrrlfriend. Takes lots of scrubbing to erase that kind of press.

        I don’t carry in b’more.

    Raven….FYI printed on the Mega MIllions ticket “Benefits MD Stadium Authority”

  9. johnsonj3 says:

    This is very sad that people can’t go out and enjoy the city. I want to know why it is being said that it’s the gangs? no one know who it was doing the fighting or shooting. There were people from all over downtown watching the fireworks. Until the police have the suspects in both cases in jail do put a label on anyone. Just saying.

    1. Chris in NC says:

      Yes, johnsonj3, just go on believing that. I’m sure the skittle farting unicorn will bring you his wonderful treats soon…

      1. NavyBuckeye says:

        Best reply I have read in a long time….my coffee is on my monitor now.

        OK that is hysterical. Can I have permission to use that in future? Also I think I just peed myself bit.

        good one, chris

  10. WANDA LEWIS says:

    I WILL NEVER ATTEND ANOTHER FUNCTION OR EVENT IN BALTIMORE CITY AGAIN
    LAST NIGHT AT THE HARBOR WAS HORRIBLE!!!!!!!!!

    1. Butters says:

      Wanda – I feel your anger.

  11. Really says:

    This is really sad, the news cant report on how many people went to the harbor to see the fireworks and how much fun they had, intsead they had to report on the crazyness and violence that went on during it. People jst cant go home peacefully after a nice event like last night. smh.

    1. Jeff says:

      Judging by the “smh”, we all know why you’re saying this. Sorry, but it is “your people” who are the issue here. Someone was KILLED and a child shot- it shouldn’t be reported? Would you have said the same had the crowd been a sea of white people? It is time to recognize the problem and acknowledge the truth!

      1. Key Qi says:

        Jeff, I’m black. I would never call them “my people”. I am an individual. Do you call ALL white people “your people” ? The hicks, honkeys, serial killers, or wiggers?

        I wouldn’t.
        —-
        Acknowledge and then do what? Do you have a plan besides generalizing ?

      2. SteveJ says:

        Key Qi, you make a good point and your willingness to stand on your own as an individual is truly refreshing. It’s unfortunate that Eric Holder and so many others on the left try to make “identity politics” the standard in this country.

  13. Baltimore Expat says:

    Thankfully, my family and I have moved away from the sesspool that has become Baltimore. This does not seem like the same place I was raised.

    1. Judy says:

      It’s not- and it makes me very sad- once I saw illegals take over Highlandtown wall to wall, it made tears come to my eyes, but there’s really nothing we can do- it’s all downhill from here!

  14. Judy says:

    Twenty years ago I used to bring my kids to see the fireworks downtown and never would I bring my grand kids! Look at the video, there is a SEA of people flowing packed shoulder to shoulder and ALL I saw were blackss and illegals. Let’s be honest, that is NOT diversity. What’s happening is a mental intimidation in numbers. What white family WOULD think highly of blacks and illegals in the city after seeing that video and hearing about what happened? Put two and two together! It took me FOUR tries to get this comment through, the censoring here is laughable!

    1. Nico Henstock says:

      Jesse Jackson would agree with you, remember his comment about feeling unsafe on a street with blacks? These so-called “chocolate cities” are nothing but crime infested cesspools.

    2. Mike says:

      White Flight is a real problem. Someone has to take a stand and take the city back!! Our cities cannot support themselves without community involvement and a strong tax base.

      New York is next…..

  15. KG says:

    Damn shame the tribal blood comes out black folk; look at similar instances where events like “freaknik” took place earlier this year. Same tribal animalistic violence.Moreover, look at the majority of democrat controlled inner cities. They are reaping what was sewn.

  16. jerry says:

    SOME adults who behave like animals are the products of broken and incomplete family structures. When kids don’t have structure, unity, family purpose, responsibility, manners, courtesy, respect, ethical behavior lessons, they become adults without any sense of morality and virtue.

    1. Nico Henstock says:

      Brought to you courtesy of the demonrat/liberal party, who in the guise of wantint to “help the downtrodden” have created this class of people who for almost 50 years look to the government as the daddy and provider. Reward out-of wedlock teenage mothers. Punsih hard work and marriage. Give all these people “affordable housing”. I don’t think Jews were charged rent in the Warsaw Ghetto either.

  19. Big G says:

    I agree with TheDuke, I hate going downtown for anything and would love to be able to protect myslef since the city can’t do it. If the thugs don’t know who is packing they will back off they are nothing but bullies once you stand up to them with force they will back down.

    Also what does the stadium authority do with all that money???

  20. Jim says:

    this is what happens when you make people slaves to govt handouts. no responsibility needed. thanks dems!

    1. Freenews says:

      Untrue!! The majority of people on welfare are WHITE!! You don’t see things like this in places like W Va, when these welfare whites get together. This issue of violence is a BLACK thing.

      I don’t understand these black people… Yes there are many that are civil, but from what I’ve seen, they have a mob/tribal mentality when they start getting into groups.

      Growing up, I went to a predominantly white neighborhood. There were other races, but not many. As time went on more people of other races appeared and this is what I observed in school. When there were a few blacks, they acted “white” (That’s how ghetto blacks would describe them), but when as more black kids started coming to the school, they would start talking and acting like ghetto blacks. Yes there was always one or 2 that would hand with their old friends, but the majority of the blacks kids would start feeding off of each other like they were in New Jack city or something.

      The Asians seemed to integrate into the majority white population just fine… Hispanics tended to hang together, but never got loud or violent like the blacks.

      What is wrong with the majority of blacks?? I’m really thinking there is something genetic to these people that makes them act out.

  21. b.mclane says:

    I would say the Democrats/Socialist/Obama regime has the inner city black community right where they want them. Its part of their decades old plan. They use these people to control the city. Constant propoganda since the blacks were young on how abused and neglected they are. On how they are “owed”. Gov’t writng checks to single moms. Black dads in prison. Unparented youth seeking approval via gangs and thugs. Even the music they listen too glorifies this behaviour. This way law abiding folks seek the BIG GOVT’s help in stopping the chaos giving over ever more power to the Big Govt.U employment is the match to the kindling laid over years of planning. Baltimore is but the tip of the iceberg. They are aiming for riots in most cities so they can completely take over.

  23. Njakalahy says:

    THE ONLY REASON THIS IS HAPPENING IS BECAUSE THE PEOPLE IN BALTIMORE NEIGHBORHOODS LET IT HAPPEN AND RELY ON THE POLICE TO TAKE CARE OF IT BY THEMSELVES. IF YOU WANT A BETTER BALTIMORE, YOU GOTTA WORK WITH THE POLICE TO PREVENT CRIMES FROM HAPPENING AND BREAK THE NETWORK OF EVIL DOERS FROM SUPPLYING EVIL THINGS TO YOUNG UNEMPLOYED CITIZENS. AT THE SAME TIME, BALTIMORE AND MD GOVS HAVE TO WORK ON CREATING THE ENVIRONMENT FOR LEGITIMATE BUSINESS OWNERS TO WORK AND CREATE JOBS IN THE AREA, AND STOP TAXING CURRENT AND POTENTIAL HOMEOWNERS TO DEATH.

    1. mmars says:

      You are absolutely right on this.

    2. riker says:

      Njakalahy, this comment stream is being censored….my response to you is that you miss one point. The the MD democrat machine intends to create dependency, for this secures their power. They will fund this on the backs of business.

      part of the plan ….not an omission

      1. Caiden says:

        Riker that’s what I’ve come to believe, the entire US will be like Detroit with a high illiteracy rate and dependent on foodstamp and section 8 house they’ll keep voting Democrat.

        Rich liberals of course won’t have to deal with it. Does anyone think socialists like Michael Moore and Jon Stewart want to lose their millions and live in public housing? No, they want to use the free market and capitalism to stay rich. Everyone else in the world get’s to live in slums.

    3. Dennis R. Milam says:

      Your comments are aimed at solving the problem. The real issue is the CAUSE of the problem.

  24. mmars says:

    I think you need to look at the police force and the court system. Perhaps they are looking the other way far too often. Until someone starts placing blame and shame on these thugs violence will continue to be a way of life.

    Hey, it’s just another bunch of Obamas runnin’ wild. Why would anyone expect “Law Enforcement” to do anything about them? After all, they are the primary voting demographic for Baltimore’s political class. Well, Obamas and dead people. But dead people only show up at election time…

  26. K says:

    There seems to be no fear of the law…if there was no incentive for violence, wouldn’t it be eliminated? Why do the perps not fear retribution??? Is Baltimore a lawless city? Or does the law enforcement focus on the law-abiding citizens…I know traffic tickets are great revenue.

    Not sure why decent citizens run out on the 4th to watch these fireworks. Most of the hooligans out celebrating couldn’t name one person that signed the D of I or for that matter what it even meant. Sadly, there’s little left to celebrate about this country’s present or future.

      1. Dedicated_Dad says:

        No.

        Words have MEANINGS.

        Language is the basis for conscious thought. People who cannot express themselves cannot THINK!

        This is one of the reasons (ahem)”Minority” children do poorly in school – their culture accepts (encourages) colorful but simplistic and imprecise language, thus the kids have problems with complicated concepts requiring precision such as (for example) high-level mathematics.

        When learning to be fluent in one’s native language is likely to earn one a beating from their peers, the entire “culture” is degraded – as is clearly evidenced by the events which caused this discussion!

        Make no mistake – the problems I am referring to are *CULTURAL* – the problem isn’t “race” — it’s CULTURE!

        Until you fix the CULTURE, things will only get worse!

        PS: I refuse to work in MD because I’m forced to choose between being defenseless and being a criminal. In a year I’m leaving for a less-tyrannical, idiotic state.

        The problem isn’t “guns” – if it was, then rural areas would be the most violent.

        People don’t “act the fool” in my neighborhood because they’d get SHOT, and they know it.

        Baltimore (MD) criminals know the law-abiding are defenseless – so you get what we have here, now.

  34. riker says:

    Baltimore is a cesspool …the 100th example of progressive policy destroying society to create dependency on government , and driving a vicious cycle in the process.

    Precious children in the black and white community are being killed , raped , beat-up, robbed, by mostly black gangster thugs……70% of them grew up in single parent households.

    And please lets not dilute the discussion by saying all races do this equally. A number society can’t run away from….FBI crime stats : Blacks are almost 7x more likely to commit violent crime than any other racial / ethic group.

    But go ahead black America …keep voting for leftist strongmen and white liberals who created the welfare state and in the process , destroyed the black family , and opportunity for your children. The only one who benefits from liberal criminal justice , the welfare state , multiculturalism , and political correctness are the democrat politicians who want to keep you in their plantation.

    Liberalism is theft….and destruction

    1. Truther says:

  35. ferg says:

    Obama said, “They bring a knife, we will bring a gun” More violence brought on by the dictator.

    1. Caiden says:

      Ferg, I bring that quote up alot. The liberal media really does hide stuff like that. If a Republican flubs a line it’s repeated nonstop and the punchline in jokes. Obama says it and everyone is standing around whistling.

      Seems CNN and other news sources aren’t covering the AFT Fast and Furious operation. They never mention how a few months back they used Mexican gun violence as a reason to limit US citizens’ gun rights. Even blamed the violence on US gun owners, when really it was Obama flooding Mexico with thousand so guns so they could blame it on us.

    As the progressive liberal agenda advances so does the crime in America. People hate our conservative morality, but USA was a safer place then.

    1. Jeff says:

      Safer for who and safer when? America has always been a violent country since our founding. Ask the Indians. Crime has increased as the population has increased. Crime was rampant during the wild west where you could kill a man for looking at you the wrong way and justice was sparse. Has things really changed that much. 20’s and 30’s basically caused the creation of the FBI to hunt down the criminals who were out of control. People tend to glamorize mobsters from that era, but they were ruthless and killed anyone who got in the way of their money or interests all the while bribing off politicians, police, and judges. I love our country, but don’t romanticize the past. Everything ever acheived in this country in some way or form was due to looking down the barrel of a gun.

      1. Jeff says:

        There are two Jeffs commenting on this article and the poster above is NOT me. Let me make that clear.

      3. Dedicated_Dad says:

        The “wild west” was actually very peaceful, by comparison.

        An armed society is a POLITE society.

        The “showdown in the street” didn’t really happen. People who committed murder were hanged – usually immediately following their trial, though “frontier justice” happened too.

        When people knew murder would get their neck stretched — and NOT after 4 decades of delay and appeal — they exercised their abilities of self-control!

        Movies ain’t HISTORY.

        Yes, prohibition created organized crime – something our current masters should consider – but even then one was exponentially safer even in the “bad neighborhoods. Despite the movie portrayals, there was much LESS violence!

        Even today one can compare gun-banning cities (NY, Balto, Chitcago, etc) to those in states not run by gun-banners and…. more guns==less crime!

        Laws banning guns only affect those who obey laws — criminals will ALWAYS get theirs!

  40. Unnecessary says:

    Its Crazy how this quickly turned into racist thread. Yes its sad and unfortunate and extremely stupid of the people that’s shooting guns like its just a slap But its NOT an entire race thing its more of an age range I have yet to see an old man shoot but YES I have seen a white boy. And Sadly its pretty much an acquired common knlowedge that things of this nature happen now and since nobody cares to do anything about it it will continue. Just think smart and know where to be and where not to be. The entire race conversation is truly ignorant. Youu People (White people) are so quick to judge and bash an entire race when you have many issues of your own that’s just not televised if you care to talk about the AGE RANGE that’s so stupid and misguided maybe you should do something positive to help (and race bashing or chatting online definitely does not fall under that category either).

    1. Joey says:

      LOL okay, right- the “white boy” you saw shooting was probably aiming for a deer, whereas your folk were … well, read the article.

      1. LikeReally?? says:

        or maybe his mother you know how you “good white folk” are

    2. Truther says:

      You say it is an age issue, but look a little deeper and see that it is more of a race issue. These youth were raised and instilled with certain values from an older generation. Nevermind calling it a race issue. These people are not African immigrants. If I see a black man walking down the street with his pants pulled up walking with a smile on his face, maybe whistling a little tune, I would bet he is an immigrant not raised with the virtues of decendents of slaves.

    3. Do Something About This says:

      All people of color and all people that are white do not have the kind of ignorance it takes to commit these violent crimes against another human being!! Only the ones with serious issues that completely act like idiots, have no home training, no regard for another persons life and just plain don’t care!!! With so many decent people living in Baltimore, why do we put up with these senseless crimes?? Baltimore Leaders; DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS!!!!!!!!!!!

    4. LFC says:

      No, it’s definitely a race issue. You are insane to suggest anything different. Whites (or white boys like you say) just don’t do this. Yes, all races have their bad seeds, but nothing like what is happening at the hands of black people in the last few years. It’s in every major city, on every major news network and EVERYBODY knows it. Doesn’t matter that MSM doesn’t disclose race – it’s a known fact that if there’s a shooting, a mob attack, a rape of a child (infecting their own children w/HIV while raping them….bet you didn’t see that one), a riot, a stabbing, etc. there’s going to be blacks involved. FACT.

      Make excuses, spin it how you want; whatever makes you feel better. Point is, it’s not an age thing. It’s a black thing.

      1. Dedicated_Dad says:

        The problem is CULTURE – not race.

        CULTURE.

        Upper-middle-class blacks are less violent than white-trash — sorry, but it’s true.

        Of course, with ghetto-CULTURE becoming ubiquitous among young people of all races and cultures, it’s no surprise that the worst outcome is realized.

        The problem is CULTURE!

    5. sbpdl3 says:

      No, it’s not all blacks, but these sort of vicious mob attacks that are rising in popularity with thugs are perpetrated exclusively by black mobs. And it isn’t like the Italian mobs of yore, they didn’t go around kicking random stranger’s faces in and stabbing them with bottles. It’s a black thing, us non-blacks wouldn’t understand.

        Not to this scale. They simply feel empowered by their idiot messiah. Wake up and use your mind.

        No, I’m not ten years old.

  43. C.Anne says:

    It makes me sad that those within the black community who are law abiding and upright citizens get painted with the same brush, due to the disgusting behaviors of thugs such as this. Unfortunately, the thugs seem to outnumber the upright citizens within certain areas, such as Baltimore.

    Those successful and strong members of the Black community need to take a stand and speak out against the behaviors of those who are dragging their name and their race through the mud. Please, America needs to hear your voice about this!! Only other blacks are going to be able to affect change within their own communities. From the nations eyes, it seems the only time the black voice is made known is when it’s Al Sharpton, and it’s NEVER a call to rebuke.

    1. Key Qi says:

      I’m here, and I’ve never clamed Al Sharpton as mine.

      I am truly sick of being thrown in with all blacks, I didn’t even grow up with the majority you speak of. Most of my family members are educated and both of my parents hold Master’s degrees.

      Of course, some wouldn’t associate me with African Americans black since my family is from the Caribbean and also hispanic and indian. Still, my color here seems to be all most need to see to judge me and it’s really sad.

      I am working on what you said. I am a small voice in the crowd but I am here.

      1. Christopher says:

        Um- sorry, you are NOT AA or a black person- why have you commented in this tread as if you are one yet you are Caribbean, hispanic and indian?

      2. C.Anne says:

        Well, God Bless you then🙂 And you are one who has a voice within the community. It’s not that *I* personally am lumping you or anyone else in, but from the nations eyes, at large, that is the unfortunate reality. I don’t think that many whites or other races would be very effective at providing a rebuke, or would even have much of a place to do so. I, myself, am mixed race, and I also have an advanced degree, so I do understand the responsibility that comes with that, but it is a responsibility nonetheless. I also acknowledge, as stated, that the “thugs” don’t represent the “black community” which is why other voices need to be heard. The sounds of violence that are so frequently reported are drowning out those who are being unfairly represented by these groups of individuals.

        Take care🙂

      3. Key Qi says:

        Christopher I AM black, but my family is also hispanic and indian. Besides, In America a minority is a minority, is it not?

      4. Key Qi says:

        Thank you C. Anne. We need to align ourselves, not separate due to obvious differences. I can see we and others here have so much in common. It would be a pity not to fight alongside conservatives because I am considered an uncle tom or self-hater.

      5. C.Anne says:

        I hear ya, Key Qi.

        I really do think that it is extreme liberalism that is the true cuplrit…it has totally disenfranchised and disempowered minorities within our country. Economic power, above all other types, is the most insidious, because everything else then becomes a trickle-down effect. The lender will always have power over the recipient, and the implications for this are dangerous, as the person indebted to the lender will always be at their mercy. Once a socialist structure is in place, the potentials of a free market are stifled, and people will lose their ability (and their God-given right) to pursue a better life. I really only wish that more (esp., fellow minority groups) were able to see this for what it really is…systematic discrimination and marginalization.

    2. sbpdl3 says:

      Why is it always that some group of blacks are the “real”victims of black-on-white crime, because it makes people who look like them look bad and it hurts their widdle precious feewings. Even though often even the law abiding blacks tacitly encourage this sort of behavior by not criticizing it and “not snitchin'” and further encourage criminality with a vengeful attitude towards law enforcement. Cops have had their hands tied with PCism and parasite lawyers, so now they really don’t try that hard to fix this problem, and folks, it is only gonna get worse.

      1. C.Anne says:

        You obviously missed the point to my entire post. There’s no justice in guilt-by-association, but it had nothing to do with who is or is not a victim, or hurt “feewings”…it was a call for blacks to rebuke those within their own community. Perhaps if you had dropped the ‘tude’ you would have been able to see that more clearly. You can keep the anger if you like, but that provides no constructive solution and only furthers to fuel continued anger on both sides.

  44. old409 says:

    Regardless of how they got here, one thing is very clear, they are a curse upon the nation. This incident will be re-played several time times daily across the country.

    I lived the first 40 years of my life in the country, isolated from these people and their ways. I used to believe they were oppressed by the white race .Now after 20 plus years of living with them, I believe they need to be oppressed by the white race. As I posted earlier, they cannot handle the responsibilities of Freedom. Collectively, they act more like animals than humans.

    1. Key Qi says:

      So re-enslaving is your best solution?

      1. Donald says:

        Does what’s going on now seem much better? Can’t get much worse than crime run amuck and death EVERYWHERE!

      2. LFC says:

        @Key, so what is your solution then?

        War on poverty didn’t work out so good, war against drugs was a joke, no child left behind and all of the other “gimmie” programs have proven one thing to be true……YOU CAN’T SAVE WHO DOESN’T WANT TO BE SAVED. Enough olive branches have been extended and at some point someone needs to admit defeat and change strategies.

        Giving people with victim mentalities and entitlement behaviors handouts after handouts obviously hasn’t worked. Before nanny programs, and before “integration” blacks did not behave like this. They were as civilized as whites. You need to ask yourself what happened.

    Thanks to Presidents Roosevelt, Johnson, Carter and Clinton, the vast majority of the negro race in America will be forever doomed to a life of crime, violence and poverty. It didn’t used to be like this until Lyndon Johnson’s “Great Society” and the guilt-ridden liberals of the ’60s and ”70s tried to ‘save’ these people. Instead, their policies have enslaved them and created dysfunction of unimaginable proportions for these people.

    And to make matters worse, they’re now doing the same thing for Hispanics and other minority groups.

  48. Bonnie says:

    Give these animals two states. Fence them in with an electrically charged fence. Let them free to roam, rape, kill, steal and any other atrocities these barbarians care to commit.

    Oh my God in heaven. The comments on this thread are some of the most abominable I have ever read short of some Nazi manifesto. You are so fortunate that God is merciful and looks beyond your racism and hatred. You’ve lost your way and can’t even process a situation without relegating it to a racist rant. A few of the comments attempt to explore the problems of a burgeoning urban wasteland, but the majority of the comments are bordering upon reprobate which does not always denote a physical corruption. This is an example of a mental and psychological corrosion. I am involved with a man from Baltimore, MD. I was on the fence about the relocating my business to Baltimore. After reading these comments, relocating to Baltimore is a dealbreaker. I pray my fiance will leave immediately.

      Ha ha ha. Yeah you won’t move to Baltimore because some white people are sick and tired of being victimized and being told we’re responsible for all the world’s evils. It has nothing to do with the ghetto blight and the roving packs of “teens” (often 20 to 30 year olds, but all black) that might pummel your face with a board for kicks. It’s fear of white people with impolite opinions based on years of observation. Riiight….

  53. pigeon says:

    Appears today’s society entails 90% animals and 10% so-called human beings.
    Such a sick society. Absolute senseless violence. Soon they are going to put up a fence of bars around the city so people can watch/see human animals rid the city of each other. There is no one, not even the shooter, who can give a good explanation for the shooting of that child. Whom ever you are may you suffer an injury 100 times worse!
    I am NOT an Obama fan, but don’t blame this on him – that’s just making him the fall guy. This type of individual had these tendencies way before he got in office. They think they are entitled to do so to make up for what a bunch of whities did years and years ago to people they claim are family and whom they never met.
    There will NEVER be peace among God’s people until they put hate out of their lives and replace it with love for each other.

  54. Montgomery says:

    The London Economist published the original *bill of laden* naming the owners of the slave ships. These international merchants facilitated the transport of the chattel cargo of Africans courtesy of the African chieftains as war booty.

    American plantation owners were competing against some plantation owners who worked their fields using this chattel slave labor. The use of slave labor caused the honest plantation owners to operate at a distinct disadvantage at the time.

    Economically, it reminds one of the current US government’s promotion of outsourcing, free-trade and off-shoring to the benefit of transnational corporations and the destruction of American based company’s today.

  55. Greg says:

    Why don’t you see these types attacks or crimes in the center of the country. Only the Black, Inner Cities seem to have a problem. Can’t these people just act like the rest of the population and just get along.

    then you know it’s a black suspect.

    How come black people try to defend their race when it murders and mails but white people condemn and apologize for members of their race? Black people have a LOT of work to do if they want to be morally equal with white people. Not to say blacks are inferior just that they were still cannibals and preformed sacrifice. They are still catching up with the rest of evolutionary history.

  62. Aunt Ann says:

    They just updated the video and it WAS a SAVAGE. What do you know? And the victim was a visitor from Alabama. Noone has wanted to visit the city for YEARS because of the violence and this just put the nail in the coffin!

  63. jim bob says:

    I had a friend from pa travel down to the baltimore arena to compete in the arenacross. His pickup truck bed had his motocross gear bags, bike stand, extra fuel. lubes, and his dirt bike via tie downs. He stops at a red light in the city on his way down, His window is down and he hears “local youth” pointing at his dirt bike on his truck. Within seconds, they are running across traffic, surrounding his truck like a mob and trying to steal anything on the back of it. He is surrounded by cars in front of him, behind him, and to the left and right and can’t do a thing. By the time the light turns, and he can try to escape; his bike has only the front wheel still on the pick up bed hanging by a tie down that is barely keeping the bike from dragging on the ground to the side of his pick up. Thankfully, he had double looped his loose tie down ends and they had trouble figuring how to work them. He lost his gear, BRAND NEW helmet, etc.in BROAD DAY LIGHT by a mob of black youth in open view with pedestrians watching. I was lucky, in harrisburg, Pa., at a gas station near the motorama complex, I only had about 7th black youth jumping up and down against my door asking me to just give them the dirt bike. They would shut up, they wouldn’t listen to “no”. They had no concept of understanding after I said to them. “I worked long and hard for a long time to save up money and buy this, Why should I just give it to you.” Because I was waiting on someone, I took a chance, and got out of the truck and literally had to place myself between them and the truck to keep them from any further scratching the body. One of the youth (maybe 15 yrs old) was being beligerant and I was worried. Not worried what he might do, but worried what might happen to me if I pulled my revolver out on them. Somehow, I would be the bad guy for just saying get the hell back from my stuff. I almost always conceal carry everywhere. I can’t get a permit for Maryland so Baltimore no longer gets my businesss unless I don”t have a choice. And for the record, if there had been one white kid, I would have mentioned it. I believe in trying to be colorblind, but “the truth has no agenda.” Experience has shown that white kids admire and look at it, black kids ask me to give it to them or just try to steal it. When a gov’t check replaces the role of a father providing for his responsibilities, a mother can try and do all she can, but she has a hard rode ahead of her…especially in the city. But I guess the question that I leave you with is who gave them the mentality that if they want something they should expect to get it without having to work and pay for it. I did not have those views as a child, so why do they?

    1. Utah says:

      Couldn’t agree more. This kind of stuff doesn’t happen in Utah (where I live) – most everyone is civil because they know everyone is packing a gun. When there are consequences for bad behavior people tend to behave. Too bad only the criminals have guns in the big cities – it only empowers the thugs and creates victims among the “law abiding” citizens. Hey – that reminds me, why is it that on college campuses only the criminals have guns…too many sad examples of how that great liberal policy has led to the wanton death of innocent “law abiding” students….

  64. Jane says:

    By the way people, TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT THE SMILING MURDER SUSPECT, looks anything but Black to me. I’m just saying. Yet everyone still wants to blame Blacks for everything wrong in society. Can’t even see whats right in front of your faces.

    1. Aunt Ann says:

      GO VISIT PEARLE VISION YOU IDIOT! THE SUSPECT IS CLEARLY BLACK!!! What is wrong with you?!

      1. Love says:

        No he is white not Black just like the victim. He is a tan white guy, you people are so mixed up you dont know whats what. Looks like one of the Jersey Shore guys to me. Maybe you need to get your eyes and your closed mind checked turd bucket! And where are the racist remarks against that child murderer who got off, guess a white who kills is really just misunderstood.

      2. Aunt Ann says:

        No, honey- HE IS BLACK. What the hell is wrong with you people, can you not SEE?

      3. Jeff says:

        This is not a story about Casey Anthony, a$$hole. She is a monster. Just as someone said before- whites condemn vile people in their own race, blacks only defend other blacks no matter what they do!

    1. caiden says:

      Lucifer, that’s part of the outrage. Blacks are targeting whites all over the country, and that has been kepts for us. THey also target asians and hispanics, and the media withholds that info. But when Michael Richards says somethng stuid that’s on the news nonstop for months.

      SO people are getting sick of it, and that’s going to cause alot of bad reactions. Because just saying “hey the black community seems to have a problems” equals racist unles we blamethe problem on whites.

  67. No more mercy!!! says:

    Judicial liberalism at it’s best. Early outs, plea bargain reduced sentences, citations only on repeat offenders. Until the system starts to realize that violent crime comes with SEVERE punishments, criminals could care less. Use a gun or deadly weapon, you’re toast when caught. Kill someone, you have 90 days and 1 appeal, then your strapped down & injected.

  68. dougx says:

    The South had the right idea. If people are backward, ignorant, and violent, you have to maintain control over them. The liberals turned them loose, so there is carnage on American streets every single day.

  70. Simone says:

    I visited the Inner Harbor last evening and it continues to amaze me how a select group of people which is looking more and more like the majority continue to wreak havoc and chaos on these events. I refer to these people as “Balti-MORONS”. Never in my life have I witnessed such rude, ill-mannered and disgusting people in my life. I have lived in New York City, Los Angeles and Northern California and Baltimore as a city beats all on BAD Behaviour.
    If the Morons continue to behave like animals then I suggest they be caged like animals. For the record, I am a Black Woman in my Fifties. Stop all of the racist rhetoric and deal with the fact you might be friends with or related to one of these morons and step up and take a stand and teach them the difference between right and wrong.

  71. ForEverNewYorker says:

    The biggest problem in Baltimore is not the criminals but the people — white, black, and otherwise — who are too ignorant and weak to get rid of their ineffective leadership. STOP re-electing people who let these criminals back out on the street when they have rap sheets a mile long.

    YOU ARE THE PROBLEM — Mr. Average Joe Citizen — for not speaking up, speaking out, and demanding better. Why is New York City’s 42nd Street now the hottest and one of the safest destinations in the country? because the PEOPLE (white and black and otherwise) said enough is enough …. ZERO tolerance.

    Baltimoreans are just weak, ignorant and racist — white and black — THAT’S the problem.

  72. police31 says:

    here we go again baltimore the city that bleeds they dont read the charges that they facing but the people that are killing anf thinks it,s funny we something for you the death penalty it works we need to bring it back! start boosting them up with surm i there arm! the needle let thm get high off of that death drug! it,s good you can get it for free and the maryland division or correction out back! for those who like to kill children we got something for you too!,and killers.

    1. Dennis in WV says:

      I grew up in Baltimore, too.

      This is not a black / white thing. There are 3 types of people living in Baltimore: The perpetrators of crime, the victims of crime and those yet to be victomized.

      Get out while you can.

    2. caiden says:

      Curious, in Nazi Germany not everyone was a fan of the Nazis. A few spoke out, some tried to hide jews. However, there was still the holocaust, still a second world war. Just because there were Germans who refused to support the Nazis doesn’t mean the Nazis didn’t exist. The fact Nazis became the norm for German until Germany surrendered.

      Does the fact that Germans aren’t Nazis today means the holocaust never happened? Are all those dead from concentration camps now alives againt able to live out what would ave been their natural lives? No.

      Just because there are of blacks NOT committing crimes doesn’t means the black community is problems free.

      And what alot of non blacks are noticing is the there are alot of poor whites and asians that aren’t doing the same number of crimes. And they find it weird that any black problem can be blamed on whites, as if blacks are unable to control themselves.

      This has been going on for ages, there is a lot of pent up anger. Normals people can’t have a gathering without a bunch of blacks showing up and shooting someone it seems. TO even mention the problem means we’re considered racist, so the word racist has less of a sting. I mean, blacks are rampaging attacking whites, asians, and hispanics, and everyone except the blacks are racist.

      1. My Thoughts says:

        It one thing to address the fact that there is a problem but when you have people who could careless about actually solving the problem at hand and instead make dumba$$ remarks that catagorize and stereortypes black people…then yea your a racist.Lets be clear,if I said Casey Anthony was an evil white animal,then you would call me out as a racist.right?

  75. Dennis in WV says:

    Remember that Baltimore was a Yahoo article choice for graduates to live. Said then and I’ll say again: Baltimore is unsafe. The INNER HARBOR is unsafe.

    These violent incidents happy DAILY in Baltimore, but they do not get reported for fear of hurting tourism.

  76. just me says:

    I find it funny that it’s so easy to blame the liberals or the republicans. You have some saying, Obama voters are all to blame and when Bush was in office the whole economical downfall was all him. I am neither and both at the same time, the more that we point our finger at our elected officials the more we are simply going in circles. Can a group of black people in certain situations be scary? sure!! But so can a group of white people as well. You can quote statics and talk about whose fault something was 200 years ago, but that doesn’t change what’s going on right now. Yes more jails should be built, but there should also be programs to help youth that are in the situations get out. No, not all will take advantage, but some will. Some of you talk about races as one is better than the other. In truth we would not be here today without ALL the different ethnic groups. Prejudice is such an easy answer isn’t it. Lets just blame that group, so great you blamed the group now what? So you who blame I ask you do you have a solution, and not some stupid send them back kind of thing? If we want change we have to work together, cheesy but true. At the point that we completely give up on humanity then we have no where to go but down.

I am the product of a two parent household i pay taxes i am married and my husband and i are raising respectable responsible children. the comments on this post make me sad. because no matter how hard my family and i work no matter how thoughtful kind considerate and law abiding we are. we will continue to be seen as a whole race instead of individuals.

    I only accept blame for things I do. No collective guilt. Blaming groups for indiviudal actions is absurd. That being said, I was born in B’more and lived there for years before moving to suburbia because of the rotten City school system. I come back as little as possible, and those visits are as short as I can make them. Baltimore puts the “diss” in dysfunctional.

  83. Col. John Matrix says:

    Sadly, when riots and mayhem are involved in a city sitting (which is mainly where you find riots), the majority of the folks involved and being victimized are black. However in the past 10 years especially in the West and South-West Cities, Hispanics are gradually taking the place of the blacks as being the ‘majority’ of those found starting, participating and being vitimized during these riots, and looting that generally follows, when riots happens in the down-town arrea. Yes, if you look carefully at the video footage of these riots, you will see a salting of caucasions and other races tossed in, but they appear to be few and far between, unless the riot started as the result of a championship celebration.

    I have never understood why blacks or Hispanics vitimize black and Hispanic businesses in their neighborhoods, then after they clean out the business, inflict significant damage to the building or burn it to the ground, , and the business either goes out of business or moves to a “better neighborhood”, the locals (black or Hispanics) start complaining about the lack of minority business owners in their area. They never see themselves as being the reason there are no minority businesses in their area! Fortunately, this seems to be mainly isolated to urban blacks, for once blacks move into the suburbs and into the country, they then to be law-abidding, descent folks like most other folks in the burbs and country.

    It is not up to the Caucasions or anyone else to civilize the urban blacks. Despite what some commenters have said here, blacks are as smart as any other race, and have the ability to know “Right” from “Wrong”, if only they CHOOSE to pursue righteousness, law and oreder. Instead, a great many blacks are caught in the deadly and self-defeating trap of blaiming someone else for their problems, when they have only themselves to blame for their choices and actions! Hopefully, someday soon, they will realize that they are the only ones holding themselves back, and victimizing each other, and drop the divisiveness , and start calling themselves, “Americans” instead of “African-American” (which is a incorrect use of the term for the vast majority of black Americans, since the term implies they were not born of this country, but weer naturalized. This country has more problems than you can shake a stick at, most caucasions would love to see the blacks in the ghettoes and other impoverished areas, pull themselves up and out of their situations and join the rest of the American public, but unless they set goals and work towards them for themselves and quit asking for handouts and blaming everyone else for their plight, they will never take their rightful place as co-contributors to this great country. The fact that this country is still one of the best places to live in the world despite a the lack of some folks to want to get along, is a testament to its greatness. Yes, we have some problems, and people like the Klan and New Black Panthers, and La Raza seek to tear this country apart, and plundge it into a bloody race war, and we have a idiot president and congress trying to spend us into the national poor house, but America despite such problems that would and have destroyed lesser countries still moves forward, and still is one of the best places in the world to live, if only for a little while longer!

    Ever since obama got elected now it’s mob this and mob that. Frankly scr ew building more prisons that white people will most likely have to pay for. We should be freaking exiling these animals.

    I seem to recall there being a country in Africa called Liberia that was formed to repatriate slaves who wanted to go back home. The solution is simple. Three strikes and you get X’s tattooed on the back of both hands and a you get dumped at the gate of a Liberian airport. Never again to be allowed into the US. Lets see how long these mobsters last when their facing their own kind armed with AK’s. Lets see how they enjoy REAL thugs stripping them of everything they have and leaving them to deal.

  86. Peter says:

    Sorry folks, but the South had it right all this time. You have to understand that the majority of blacks think vastly differently than white people. This means that we can’t treat them as we do white people because the result is never ending violence and criminality that destroys the quality of life for white Americans as well and most other Americans. All the evidence through out history suggests that black people respect force and terror. I’m sorry but it is true. Have a look at Africa. It’s leaders hold onto their power through force and terror. Liberals think that the violence in Africa and the constant instability is abnormal — WRONG! Without a doubt it is the norm – the logic of blacks, African or American.

  92. Agrippa says:

    “WE allowed this to happen.”

    If the pronoun we is referring to democrat liberals, media lapdogs, and a court system that has made it’s primary function revenue gathering, then you are correct.

    You people must understand that the communist want these lawless elements to increase their destruction in our nation so that they can declare martial law and then foment a communist coup in America. The communist have never come into power in any nation except through a civil war, and here they have worked tirelessly for 40 years to create those conditions.

    Hate crime laws were designed to encourage minority groups to be bolder who will be useful in spreading lawlessness. Non-whites, gays, and muslims are being encourages to harass and intimidate the general population with the governments blessing and the full protection of the law. Whether or not you like these groups, are a part of these groups, or are completely ambivalent about these groups the fact remains that they are being given super citizen status with the aim of encouraging their continued abuses of the public at large.

    The government knows that eventually the rest of the population will tire of it and the violence being perpetrated by these groups will be met with violence by organized citizen militias. The end result is that he empowered groups will be decimated and the government will step in to protect them under the afore mentioned hate crime laws. At that point those who are defending their families, property, and communities from the lawlessness will be branded right wing criminals.

    The government will use the military to put down a civil insurrection by right wing terrorists and detain / execute many citizens. Guns will be banned, curfews enforced, people will be under constant surveillance and travel will be limited, information will be controlled, communities will have networks of secret police and informants to sniff out right wing terrorists who have eluded detainment, and the communist revolution will be achieved.

    If you think this is fantasy you are not paying attention. The DHS has already published the list, and the groups on the list all have one thing in common, they are the people who can and will defeat the communists.

    Look at all the cameras going up in our cities. Watch the TSA as they condition the citizenry to accept physical abuse from the government. Pay attention to the military maneuvers in our heartland that deal with domestic instability. Take note that the government is allowing lawlessness to spread from the Mexican border north and in the rest of the nation. A few years ago William Ayers said around 20 million Americans must be put to death so that progressive rule will be cemented. Review the “Operation Garden Plot” plan as it was layed out by the military under Clinton.

    Is this part of God’s plan, or just another demented group of human beings?

    Let us hope it is the former so that it ends in glory and justice, because if it is the latter then we know it ends in misery and death.

    Police say there were 600 officers downtown Monday night….. 600 Officers? That doesnt mean each one of them deserve their paycheck. I was downtown for this event and unfortunately I can say i saw many officers in crowds of 3 or more joking around and laughing… Not paying attention to their surroundings or events occuring. Like many other government officials and state employees most of them dont deserve their paychek! Why do you think everyone wants a governement job? They all know its good pay and hardly any work has to be done! Baltimore is in the poop shoot.. There are no jobs here… crime is rampant and no one is doing anything about it…

    This is all so very sad! As a black woman, it is very hurtful so see all of the comments posted on here that are racially driven, and yet I do understand why people of other nationalities and races feel they way they do. I am a 35 year old educated black woman whose parents moved her out of the city when I was in grade school. Because of the state of my own race within baltimore city, I chose to return to the. City in order to ‘give back’ after college. As a social worker who briefly worked in the baltimore city foster care system, I got to see first hand where all of these issues come from. So many of these black kids never stand a chance. Most of them don’t know who their parents are, were molested, no one ever made them go to school, bounced around to hundreds of homes, and have no sense of self worth. All they know is the streets. It hurts to see people of any race, destroy themselves this way, but I now know why they do it. I am a mother, and I would never allo my child to go into certain neighborhoods…and we are the same race…it does bother me, however, when people stereotype all blacks or group all races together and allow the actions of certain groups to cause people to call blacks such terrible names. It is hurtful and judgemental. I know that in many cases, many people deserve to be isolated and condemned for their actions, but I ask that people pplease be considerate in expressing their oppinions…just pray for these people who are products of their environments!

    1. Abe says:

      Nikki – “A house divided against itself cannot stand”. Racism is strong with the culture many inner city blacks embraced for years. We are now seeing the results with riots/flash mobs, shootings, beatings, and murder. Anyone wonder why the federal government is quiet?? The white liberals have PUSHED racism to create division so all Americans don’t UNITE against their plan. Non-blacks are getting emotional (as planned) since all attacks are aimed at them. Once the very heavily armed Americans begin the racial civil war, the executive order for gun confiscation is justified. Thus ends the Constitution.

    What do you expect from a society who votes in a man with a chip on his shoulder?

    So all of this amounts to a celebration of getting that CHECK FROM THE GOVT.

    “We’ll party on down, get high, get some chicks pregnant, and cause mayhem because our Messiah approves.”

    How do you like that Hope and Change you voted for?

    Put that in your corn flakes this morning and think about how to make America better in 2012.

  108. Will says:

    I wish whites would say these things directly to black people instead of hiding behind computer screens. Blacks faced fire hoses, dogs, and brutality to get the truth about their situation out. Maybe whites need to take responsibility for the truth now and start speaking their truth, their perspective TO black people around them. It seems like the only ones who do that are the obvious racists. Whenever I, a black male bring up ANY subject involving race, most whites get uncomfortable, squeemish. As long as you guys hide because you fear an ass whipping or being called racistsl then things will never change.

      Thank you for this! I am so sick of WHITE people blaming BLACK folk! Nobody says anything when they win a championship game and start rioting from being drunk! But as soon as we get into a fight it’s all BLACK people! I’m black and I wasn’t even there nor did I wanna be there! And just like anybody I’m only provoked when someone provokes me!

      1. Donny says:

        Sorry, sweetbuns, I think he is ENCOURAGING white people TO say what we feel here to blacks to their face so things change- he agrees with US! Good for him!

    2. plantation master says:

      shhhhhh I’ll say it to your face or any other black and then i’ll spit in your face and have ya shine my shoes, boy!! not get back to picking dat cotton!

  109. Will says:

    and G W Bush didn’t have a chip on his shoulder? You don’t think he cared that Saddam tried to kill his dad? You call Barack Messiah, but G.W. actually believed he was EMPOWERED by God! Are you nuts or just stupid? I think your brain might be made of Fox news clips… hah haha

  110. james gawlick says:

    the only way to stop this black violence is to build more ZOOS

  111. Malcom says:

    Why would any White person go anywhere where blacks are? You know there will only be trouble. How’s that integration working out for you, America?

  112. Paul Riviere says:

    Young black skinned Americans are following orders handed down from the power hungry white liberals via Facebook/text/twitter. This is a purposeful move to incite the non-black people to break out the guns which will cause executive orders to be issued.
    The so-called black community needs to wake up and leave the demoncrat plantation and get your youth educated before it is too late!

  113. E. Celestin says:

    Ok first off its not all BLACK PEOPLE! Look at yourselves for writing comments like this! CAN U SAY RACISTS! AND for the record crime sees no color! ALL races have violence in them! At least we are not out there shooting up schools or bombing buildings or killing our own children!! And you do have some WHITE people out there with out fathers or mothers! So again think before you speak!

  114. James says:

    It’s Oopen Season on White People; approved by the Department of African American Justice’s Eric Holder and his boss.

  115. ECELES says:

    All this back and forth about BLACK people this and BLACK people that is getting old! And so what if someone voted for OBAMA- the only reason you hate on him is because he is black and you as whites aren’t ready for change! You are still stuck in the dark ages! As far as what happened at the Inner Harbor was a bunch of young and dumb CHILDREN! Obama seems to be doing a hell of alot better than that sorry ass BUSH did because if he did his thing in office and not been money hungry then we wouldn’t have gone thru a deficit! Oh and I can name a few WHITE cities were the children are THUGS, IGNORANT, and have the worst crimes to date! CRIME is everywhere if you haven’t noticed! BLACK<WHITE<HISPANIC<JEWS or whatever are all capable of something! So sit down and shut up!

    1. Sidney Snow says:

      YOU PUT THE NAIL IN THE COFFIN…. AND CLOSED IT!!!!

  116. lou skunt says:

    violent ,senseless negros…nuff’ said

  117. rising up says:

    Sidney. You are not doing your race any favors, if you are an example of what is right about black, then we really have no hope.

  118. Caiden says:

    Yeah, these comments are getting censored. It doesn’t matter because the libeal can’t hide it any more. Democrats are turning the US in Detroit so we’re all need foodstamps to live, and the liberals are ignoring black crime on whites, asians, and hispanics so whites thinks everything is safe and civilization isn’t cracking. And the thug apologists will make excuses and say whites deserve this.

    While welfare addicts were always expected to be angry and act out, I think the Democrats and liberals are a little suprised that whites are getting angry. They’re wondering why we don’t want to live in public housing like all their voters.

    Things are bad and they’re only going to get worse. Get to know your neighbors in case you need help, and if possible buy a gun and learn to use it. When the Obama supporters break down your door looking for donations and restitution t he cops will be hours away.

  119. Dipsy says:

    Have a section where you charge admission…. not a whole lot, but not nothing either. Those that want to have a good time and not be violent will be willing to pay. Typically individuals who are going to engage in criminal activity will not pay. The cost of admission could help defray the cost of the fireworks.

  120. dxr says:

    Typical simian behavior…
    .

  121. RNinBalto says:

    I worked with a nurse from Africa who told me she thought the blacks here (in Baltimore) behaved much worse than the blacks from her country.

    I can’t believe 600 cops were out there that night and could not even prevent those events from happening-I wil never go to an Inner Harbor event for as long as i live…it’s the same as New Year’s Eve. There is nothing great about Baltimore, ‘the greatest city in America’ (which I’ve seen on a park bench)….how about pure ghetto, where people get away with burning animals…because their mamas would say, ‘but my baby would NEVER do such a thing like that!’ . Then they’ll pull out the racist card and whine & cry to the NAACP. so sick of it-I can’t wait to leave Maryland.

  122. chieatfetus says:

    If you go to a another location that shows firworks, say in Dundalk where it’s primarily a white blue-collar population do you think you are going to have anyone pull out a knife or a gun like these uneducated animals did at the harbor? No.
    So then take a look at the video of the crowd at the harbor.

    1. Janice says:

      EXACTLY and that’s why I was IN DUNDALK for July 4th and had a GREAT TIME. No disturbances and not a black to be seen- imagine that!

  123. An23153 says:

    As a very observant Baltimore City resident, who just recently graduated from the BCPSS, I can see the problems with this city. The city has a really bad underlying drug problem, the school system sucks. For example, the school I went to did not have water for us to drink, no A.C, no heat. The schools don’t have enough books, so sometimes in class there would be 2 or 3 kids to 1 book. I had to sneak a book home one night so I could study for my exam! Not a lot of extracurricular activities for these young kids unless they play sports. Not everyone likes sports, there were no art clubs, chess clubs, yearbook clubs. Teachers don’t want to stay after school to help tutor kids. Since recreation centers are closed, kids don’t have anywhere to go but the streets. Lets be realistic, this is 2011. Not everyone waits until marriage to have sex and have children, and men do skip out on their children. Single mothers are out working 1 or 2 jobs, or grandmothers are too old to run out after their 15 year old grandson. These kids aren’t being taught manners, or how to behave in public. Most of them have never had someone to encourage them that they can rise above their current situation. Rawlings-Blake and the city council are very much aware of what these children face. But instead they want to use city funding to build up the Inner Harbor, make it safe for the “desirable”. They created a free transportation system for the “desirable” to get around the tourist sites. It’s like slapping a band-aid on a big, festering wound. So I guess I said all this to say, if we are tired of the violence, tired of feeling unsafe, lets work together. Lets volunteer at the rec centers. Lets reach out to these kids while they’re still young, and let them know that they can be more than just a thug, or let young girls know that theres more out there for them than just popping out babies. Im all for a change in Baltimore, but I can’t do it alone!

  124. Eceles says:

    TO ALL THOSE THAT POSTED SOMETHING ABOUT US BLACK FOLKS TELL ME WHY THEY HAVE A WHITE AS ASUSPECT FOR A MASS SHOOTING AT THE AIRPORT! BITE YOUR TONGUES! VIOLENCE SEES NO COLOR! SO BEFORE U START THROWING STONES TAKE A LOOK AT YOUR OWN RACE!

    1. Janice says:

      WHAT AIRPORT? IT SURE AS HELL AIN’T “in” BALTIMORE! We are talking about BALTIMORE’S crime problem and Baltimore’s PROBLEM is it’s BLACK PEOPLE!

  125. Bonnie says:

    Black people are taking over our local beaches, parks, and malls! I haven’t been able to go to Eastpoint in years because of their disruptions and intimidation and now they are overtaking White Marsh. I know other people have seen this! These are not classy people either, just troublemakers and loud-mouthed entitled brats! I have no problem with pleasant black folks but you rarely see any nowadays!

  126. Liberty&Justice! says:

    The Jews did nothing…
    Leave the Jews out of this.
    I am a Jew.
    I am Jewish and Catholic.
    Leave the Jews out of this.
    It’s not a black.
    Looks more like a terrorist…
    Could have been a extremist…

  127. Jack Pollack says:

    There’s an article in today’s Wash Post about how Americans going to Europe will feel insecure. Can you believe it! Europeans should be warned about coming to the US, esp to Baltimore.

  128. Betty Boo says:

    Here in England the Liberal elite is alive and well thanks to thirteen years of Tony Blair and the Labour government. There is hardly a place in England now where they have not managed to introduce blacks and our new favourite ‘minority’ Muslims. I don’t know if any of you have heard of a show called ‘Midsomer Murders? It’s about a detective in a beautiful county that is all white people, this is an England that is green fields, villages and cricket on the green…but just a few short months ago some liberal newspaper decided that is too white and started complaining that more black and ethnic faces are needed. That will sound the death of the show because we watch it to get away from the everyday muggings, raping and stabbing of the blacks ‘community’.
    We have an music festival called Glastonbury which is attended by thousands and thousands of usually white people who camp out there and attend different gigs put on by the likes of Coldplay etc. it is a rock event. The last couple of years some wonderful liberal rockstars have decided that it is too white and now we have to listen to Beyounce, J zee etc it isn’t particularly popular among the crowd who came to listen to proper rock music.
    At Glastonbury considering there are up to 250,000 people living eating and partying there, there is little crime and normally only petty stuff. Can you imagine if that event is attended by 250,000 blacks? God help us all.

  129. Graddie says:

    yo what up?

    homie had to drop whitie. I saws it play out. Bagger had it comin. Yo weezy holla back afta da attack.

    asians rule, inner city trash drools.

  130. stationnorth says:

    When will the governor and mayor declare a state of emergency against crime? Also, when are the parents going to be held responsible for the actions of their thug wannabe children?

  131. Q says:

    You know its funny how the the people say its “Black people” don’t live in Baltimore. Most likely don’t even live in a neighborhood with black people. So i find it ignorant how you can say this based on what you see on tv. Honestly, if you was so gun hoe about stopping “black violence” you would have done something instead of complaining about it on OUR (natives of Baltimore) news site

    1. Diane King says:

      Done something? Don’t think there’s much a white person can do to positively influence a group of black youths that have grown up without being taught any social skills, witnessing violent behavior as the norm, and mistrusting the white community. Confronting these individuals would likely result in getting stabbed in the neck with a broken bottle or something.

  132. Inocheitene says:
