Mayor Asking FBI For Help With Investigating City Crime, Rising Murder Rate

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Baltimore’s mayor is asking for help from the FBI as the city struggles to contain a soaring murder rate. But will bringing in the feds stop the killings?

Catherine Pugh pulled no punches earlier this week when she said the violence is out of control.

“I’m calling on all the assistance we can possibly get because I can’t imagine going into our summer months with our crime rate where it is today, what that’s going to look like by the end of the summer,” Mayor Pugh said. “… Murder is out of control.”

Some people are skeptical that the FBI will be able to help matters.

Violence has reached a crisis level, with the number of killings shattering a 20-year high this early in the year.

But WJZ has learned Mayor Pugh wants both manpower and technology from the FBI.

She met with the special agent in charge of the Baltimore division of the FBI, but wouldn’t provide specifics. She says they’ll come out next week, and the FBI isn’t talking.

WJZ spoke to public safety expert Rob Weinhold, who isn’t sure the FBI alone will be effective.

“I don’t think relying on federal resources is a new strategy at all, in fact, I think the devil is in the detail. You can talk about the FBI and that’s fine, but I’d actually like to see more emphasis on drug enforcement administration, ATF, and the Marshall service to get these folks who are wanted on warrants off the street,” says Weinhold.

The Bureau has 56 field offices nationwide and provides assistance in gang and drug cases.

President Trump has advocated sending in feds to stem violence in Chicago and other cities.

The FBI helped during another crisis-point Baltimore: the riots, using a video-equipped surveillance plane to monitor lawbreakers, alarming privacy advocates.

As WJZ reported this week, the feds also worked with city police to take down a street gang, arresting the member accused of murdering three-year-old McKenzie Elliott.

“If we support these police officers, who are out there working for the community every day, we’re going to be able to turn the tide,” says former U.S. Attorney for Maryland, now U.S. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

The question remains: will more FBI help effectively stop the bloodshed? The mayor believes she doesn’t have time to wait.

“We are looking for all the help that we can get,” she says.

There have been other plans like this before, including the “War Room” effort, whether this effort will be anything new and different will be revealed in coming weeks.

This week, Baltimore reached a grim milestone: 100 murders before the end of April. It’s the first time that’s happened since 1998.

      1. You reap what you sow. Now you want the Feds to bail you out after you caused your own problem.

      2. Bob She says:

        America doesn’t have a crime problem, America has a bla ck problem

    1. Steely Dan may approve… I do.

    2. Hiram Floss says:

      yep, just another democrat run city “success story”

      1. John Koch says:

        I always feel somewhat apprehensive when I say this, but the facts dictate that if the voters remove all the Black leadership from a really great city that ‘it’ will recover nicely within a year.

    3. Jim Higgins says:

      Amazing what the Democrats (aka Party of Satan) have achieved-a large increase in crime, especially murder. Chicago is the same. Sanctuary capitals.

    4. Great song by steely dan…

    5. Suggestion:

      1. Determine what are the high crime areas.
      2. Put out leaflets in those high crime neighborhoods that the police will be stopping and frisking in those areas 2 or 3 times a day 2 or 3 times a week and that everyone will need to produce a photo ID (and if citizens do not have one a mobile van will be available and will have the ability to make one for you at no charge).

  2. Paull Cudak says:

    BUT YOU WANTED YOUR COPS TO STAND DOWN. You got what you wanted. So suffer.

    1. Feds should first require that Balt. is NOT a sanctuary city and also that any prior agreement they entered into w/obama admin/DOJ will be dissolved.

    2. It was not this mayor who told the police to “stand down”. It was the last one Stephanie Rawlings Blake who I have NO doubt took orders from Obama and Jarrett. She then awarded Freddy Gray’s family $6.4 million before a single trial of cops accused (and not guilty). Then Rawlings Black said she would not run again for mayor. Guess she came in some money. The other issue with Baltimore is the former DA Marilyn Mosby who charged all the cops. I say she also took orders from the White House. Before Rawlings Black Baltimore had a peach of mayor Sheila Dixon ….here is some info on her. In November 2009, Dixon was tried for three counts of felony theft, three counts of misdemeanor embezzlement/misappropriation, and a single count of misconduct of office. The trial began on November 10, 2009, with Arnold M. Weiner serving as lead counsel. During the trial, two counts (one theft charge and one embezzlement/misappropriation charge) were dropped when prosecutors declined to call a key witness. On December 1, 2009, after seven days of deliberations, the jury returned verdicts on four of the five remaining counts. Dixon was found not guilty of the two felony theft charges, and one count of misconduct of office. She was found guilty on one misdemeanor embezzlement charge relating to her use of over $600 worth of retail store gift cards that were intended to be distributed to needy families. The jury was unable to reach a unanimous decision regarding the final charge of misdemeanor embezzlement.

      As the result of being found guilty, Dixon was at risk of being removed from office, and being stripped of her city retirement pension valued at over $80,000 per year for life.

      1. Thanks for the history. Very helpful comment.

      2. steamboatwz says:

        Sounds like they need to stop electing black female mayors.

      3. the current mayor went after the FBI and Sessions for Freddie Gray via the court system, now a month later she wants help. smh

      4. Eileen your history lesson is all true but it is irrelevant. Your police department is still hamstrung by the consent decree. Your mayor is still a Democrat. The political mindset of the city’s voters and elected officials are unchanged. Baltimore hates Maryland’s Republican governor and President Trump. Democrat rule for decades and no one willing to leave the plantation. Democrats own this problem.

  3. Steve Grant says:

    Crime ridden, because of the citizen’s Godless “values.”

  4. Paul King says:

    I suggest you target the areas where the murders are taking place. Hint, it’s not the white or Asian communities.

    1. Larry Smith says:

      Until the black community admits there is a problem within…there is nothing anyone can do for them…

      1. Chas Farmer says:

        Until the electorate stops voting in the inept, corrupt and ultra-left leaders there is nothing anyone can do for them. The average citizen needs to exercise their second amendment rights and protect yourself. The mayor invited criminals to “vent” their frustration and told the police to stand down. She rewarded one behavior and scolded another and consequently the rewarded behavior increased. The problem is that innocent people pay the price for her progressiveness and out right FAILURE! Stop voting for these people and things will improve but if you continue to seek their leadership you will continue to be targeted in your own city by criminals, thugs, and murderers.

  5. When you ask the police to stand down, and treat them like criminals for trying to enforce the law, you get this result. These liberal leaders invite disaster and bloodshed on their own cities by siding with criminals over the police. Are their occasional oversteps by police? I’m sure, but when your knee jerk reaction is to blame them, the people in the very communities you’re trying to curry favor with suffer.

    1. was not this mayor who told the police to “stand down”. It was the last one Stephanie Rawlings Blake who I have NO doubt took orders from Obama and Jarrett.

  6. Jr Rose says:

    Crackmore stood down when they should of stood up…So for your request…Wrong!

  7. Behold the fruits of government control, regulation, fiat currency, state education…..the world never learns. They just keep on rejecting liberty in search for the economic perpetual motion machine. A fantasy which has killed hundreds of millions.

  8. Want a solution… Go to church… learn about God, Jesus and morality. Let you citizens arm themselves. Problem solved.

  9. John Hill says:

    Sorry, the FBI is busy chasing Russian ghosts under Hillary’s bed. Maybe Obozo and his crack crime fighting team can help since they are all unemployed now. Loretta Lynch can meet with the gang members at the Baltimore Airport ( in secret, of course).

  10. This is too funny. They deserve what their idiotic liberal policies bring them. It’s fantastic.

  11. The decades of voting 95+% for Democrats has relegated the black community to the status of political pawns and useful idiots.  Their inner city illiteracy rates often exceed 50%, black unemployment is two to three times surrounding communities, and Obama’s “open borders” policy has made that much worse. Bureau of Justice Statistics say that blacks were charged with 62% of all robberies, 57% of murders and 45% of assaults in the 75 largest U.S. counties though they made up roughly 15% of the population there.

    Blacks have set records for government dependency, and for fatherless families and high unemployment rates which all have their roots in the liberal policies of the socialist elites running the Democratic Party.

    Obama, Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch have created the most corrupt Administration and Justice Department in US history suggesting a lack of ethics even extends to the black community’s upper crust.

    And now, with the rocketing upswing of shootings and deaths since Ferguson, as well as the mass murder by a depraved bigot in Dallas, Democrats have much more to answer for than just the consequences of a greedy and selfish political posture.
    Look toward the most dysfunctional, dependent and murderous communities in the country and you will find decades of control by corrupt and self-serving Democratic Party politicians.

    1. Rob Bruce says:

      Of course you know what the left’s answer is to your fact-based response – it’s racism. Racism is the cause of all black people’s problems. That is why this problem will never be resolved.

      1. Takit Itzfre says:

        No no no. It’s slavery

  12. There are too many whites in Baltimore. The problem is white peoples.

  13. Rob Bruce says:

    Umm… maybe it has something to do with their ‘social justice’ anti-police approach?

    1. That was the former mayor and DA. This woman is actually trying to help Baltimore.

  14. Gene Smith says:

    You trashed (and prosecuted!!!!!) your police! You are getting what you wanted as no police officer will chance ruining his/her life by defending an unappreciative public. You have made it difficult, if not impossible, to properly corral and control the blacks, and blacks are your criminals. You are protecting your criminal class! No other place in America deserves it more than you folks.

  15. Fed Up says:

    Well, just stand by because the next madness out of Baltimore is going to be “protests” blaming the violence on racism. Oh, not the usual “root causes” drivel but rather that it’s racist to “withhold” effective policing from certain, ahhh, “communities” and the lack of it can only be chalked up to the unrelenting racism of their countrymen.

  16. Wasn’t the “mayor” the dope that said that black youths “need to blow off steam”-well, she got her wish. Never underestimate the stupidity of demoncrat pols.

    1. Former Mayor. Stephanie Rawlings Black. She is also the one who awarded Freddy Gray family $6.4 Million. She decided soon after not to run again for mayor. I am guessing she came into some big $$$$ somehow.

  17. Obama voters having fun. Part of the liberal coalition.

  18. Have your street gangs in Baltimore that you let take over the city so you could be politically correct do the work to fix the murders and crimes.

    Oh wait. That’s where you problem started, isn’t it, when you let the anarchists take control under the PC label typical of democrat run, socialist cities.

  19. smokecover says:

    Why should your local cops stick their necks out and risk ending up charged with a crime. Remember Freddy Gray. City paid 5 Mil to his family and charged 5 cops with his death. They were cleared but the message was sent.

  20. Shaune Stark says:

    I love to see liberals reaping the results of their own policies! You liberal idiots have never been able to learn that you reap what you sow, so when you sow disastrous policies, you will get disaster back 10-fold…

  21. So who cares? Stop reproducing like rabbits and then it will go down.

  22. Isn’t Baltimore a sanctuary city? I’m sure they’ll figure it out.

  23. Under Armour best get out.

  24. John Oakman says:

    Let’em wipe all dems out.

  25. Lol, this is what they asked for courtesy of Obama’s DOJ……..

  26. Jim Foles says:

    The mayor is requesting the wrong US department… They need the National Guard.

  27. What is the City Policy for enforcing Federal Law? If they are not helping the Feds to adjudicate federal crimes the answer is no. If you need our help we need your help that is how polite societies work.

  28. When blacks run things… Here’s an idea…. Force JayZ (with his racist medallion) and wide-behind Beynonce to live among their own people there. As well as all the other wealthy blacks who DUMP themselves in all-white communities.

  29. burnet1187 says:

    Take the guns away from everyone who voted for Obama and no more murders

  30. Jay Palm says:

    Have Holder deal with HIS people! Lot of good a transgender, muslim half breed did for race relations uh?

  31. Jacob Hughes says:

    The mayor was loud and clear to the police… we do NOT have your back. Do you think any Baltimore police officer 5 years from retirement is going to risk their neck for a city who hates them? As Obama said…”elections have consequences”.

  32. Andy Stone says:

    FBI coming in next week so hurry and get your murdering done early.

  33. The Democrat government wanted the Rioters to have Room to Destroy…so, why don’t they want the Killers to have room to Kill?
    You want less crime? Let them purge themselves!

  34. Marilyn Mosby anyone??? Hah – the poster girl of affirmative action education.

  35. you told the police to stand down and allowed a crooked prosecutor to proceed with criminal charges against innocent police officers….umm what do you expect??? hire a real police chief who supports the department and is aggressive with thugs/criminals. get rid of the crooked prosecutor.

  36. As long as they’re killing other Blacks, honestly, I can’t see a problem; quite the opposite, I consider this to be good news. Thanks for starting my week off on a high note. Keep it up, please.

  37. Bart Drennon says:

    You’ve made your bed. Now lay in it.

  38. The army reserve or national guard needs to come in and go building to building, block by block making arrests….they will find plenty of criminal violations. oh do not tell them when you are coming. 3am , no knock, kick door in.

  39. There was a solution. years ago, it was Monroeville…too late now!

  40. This is a microcosm of what the left has planned for the entire nation. A divided society in turmoil is a controllable society. Any Marxist will tell you that.

  41. Don’t you just love self-eradicating infestations? Now, if we could just condition roaches and rats to kill their own kind…

  42. malice420dotcom says:

    BURN BABY BURN

  43. The “mayor” is setting the police up for more criminal charges …. AGAIN.

    She begs them to do their job, again, while at the same time, the police know the mayor is looking for the next police brutality charge.

    Policing the ghetto is to being a circus handler for bab00ns.

  44. Cannot help you dudes. That would be Raycist. May Freddie Gray rest in peace and never have to go for another police ride.

  45. Greg Hawkins says:

    The very minute the Feds start arresting criminals for Federal gun violations crime will drop drastically in that city and people like Maxine Waters and Obama will call the BATF racists. Guaranteed 100%.

  46. The FBI’s answer should be clear. “Fine, we’ll clean up your mess when every cancerous leftist Democrat resigns.”

    1. Greg Hawkins says:

      Ha ha ha, Jim Comey is a liberal Democrat, he should be the first to resign.

  47. Brian Taylor says:

    You foster an environment of disrespect for authority and contempt of the law, even to the point of becoming lawless as a city government, and a child of 7 of less than average intelligence could have told you what would happen.

  48. How many of these gang thumpers and killers were released by Obama via presidential pardons? Afterall they were just little drug users in the wrong place, wrong time, just beginning to get their lives back together.

  49. annnnnd there it is – Baltimore FINALLY admits that years of leftist control has resulted in uncontrollable crime. Can you imagine if this was a republican mayor of a republican city asking for help with out of control MURDER? A week of wall-to-wall coverage, minimum, with specials on CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC. But democrat run Baltimore? Yawn. Soon it will be Trump’s problem and, therefore, his fault.

  50. Robert James says:

    Is there any other example of blacks trying to administrate a large population with a significant number of blacks?………… oh yeah, …. I remember now. It’s Haiti. Chicago too.

    How’s that working out for you who identify with your homeland of Africa once you take whitey out of the equation? Black Africans never invented anything more sophisticated than a sharp stick. Now it looks like black-run civic and social administration has about that same level of sophistication.

    1. When white people leave white civilization leaves with them.

  51. Joe Boyett says:

    The Governor of Maryland should order out the state’s unorganized militia as authorized by the Maryland code quoted below:

    Maryland Code, Public Safety § 13-202
    (a) Except as provided in subsection (b) of this section, the militia consists of able-bodied individuals who are:
    (1) citizens of the State;  

    * * * * * * * * * * * *

    Maryland Code, Public Safety § 13-203
    (c) The unorganized militia consists of those individuals described under § 13-202 of this subtitle but who are not regularly enlisted or commissioned in the organized militia.

    * * * * * * * * * * * *

    Maryland Code, Public Safety § 13-701
    (2) If the number of organized militia available is insufficient, the Governor may order out the unorganized militia.

  52. Hey Baltimore, maybe you should have thought about the important, and proficient, job that your police officers were performing, BEFORE you decided to not support them!!

    If I was a Baltimore police officer, I would be of the opinion – “let it burn to the ground”!

  53. The pathetic part is: these people who invite the crime in the name of democrat social justice just keep on getting re-elected.

    So, it’s not just the leaders, but the voters that are most deserving here. And that is the case: it’s the voters getting the raw end of the stick. The leaders have their security and their walls…

  54. Don’t live there but from outside your hell hole the cause of and answer to you problem is seems pretty obvious.

  55. Rick Fischer says:

    You can support the police or the Democrats. Choose carefully.

  56. John Fogarty says:

    Bring baseless criminal charges against police officers then enter into a consent decree to bring them to heel even more is a sure way to fight crime.

  57. Charles Darwin said “Since the dawn of history the African has owned the continent of Africa – rich beyond the dream of poet’s fancy, crunching acres of diamonds beneath his bare black feet. Yet he never picked one up from the dust until a white man showed to him its glittering light. His land swarmed with powerful and docile animals, yet he never dreamed a harness, cart, or sled. A hunter by necessity, he never made an axe, spear, or arrowhead worth preserving beyond the moment of its use. He lived as an ox, content to graze for an hour. In a land of stone and timber he never sawed a foot of lumber, carved a block, or built a house save of broken sticks and mud. With league on league of ocean strand and miles of inland seas, for four thousand years he watched their surface ripple under the wind, heard the thunder of the surf on his beach, the howl of the storm over his head, gazed on the dim blue horizon calling him to worlds that lie beyond, and yet he never dreamed a sail!”

    1. Paul Baker says:

      Science and Politics are strange bedfellows.

  58. How can the FBI assist in eradicating liberalism, the root cause of violence in Baltimore?

  59. Frank Walker says:

    First this idiot mayor wannabe castrates her police department. Then she wonders why crime is escalating out of control. Only liberals are this stupid. What actually is out of control is this mayor’s liberal insanity.

  60. Al Hmiel says:

    No one cares about Baltimore and their inner city murder rate. The police could care less also about thinning the hood out and eliminating the crime lords and the druggies and the welfare crowd. Let them kill each other and thin the herd. It helps society all these inner city murders anyway.

  61. Nip this in the bud and start arresting all the white people in town.

  62. Frank Walker says:

    Baltimore liberal fools: WABOA

  63. Homer Wilson says:

    The FBI could careless about Baltimore’s inner city murder rate. Baltimore’s own police don’t even care about the inner city murder rate. Every inner city in America is the same way with the hood killing each other off. Ever wonder why every inner city school is a failure? Let them go as they are helping society.

  64. Want to stop the third world behavior? Get rid of the third world population.

  65. Just read a story that a open borders advocate was among a group of people that were OUTRAGES that his mother is being deported after they found Crystal Meth and $600,000 cash in the apartment. They also had 33 pound of cocaine in their car……until we get serious about crime……… nothing to look at here.

    This it result of ignoring and protesting against the enforcement of “the rule of law”! Everyone thinks that only applies to THE OTHER GUY! Till, it spills over to your neighborhood!

    1. Homer Wilson says:

      Life in the ghetto is just normal and murder is common as supper.

  66. Homer Wilson says:

    anybody ever pick up Freddy Gray yet?

  67. Jack Pod says:

    Thinning of the gene pool at work in Baltimore.

  68. When white people leave white civilization leaves with them.

  69. Yet another failure to govern and urban society by elected unqualified people.

  70. Tom Zahay says:

    This can’t be a true story, Baltimore and Maryland has strict firearms laws, what are they killing each other with, rocks?

  71. Blacks can leave the jungle, but the jungle still runs in their veins while they build ghettos and fatherless families…

  72. Rich Cole says:

    Let you police do their jobs. This is just another example of a Democrat tying the hands of the people that can protect the city. When will people learn that you cannot let Democrats run anything. The mess up everything they get their hands on.

  73. Homer Wilson says:

    Has there ever been one successful black run country ever? Baltimore inner city is more like Somalia or Kenya. Maybe let Al sharpie Sharpton come in and give a speech in the hood?

  74. I’ll take “Name That Race” for $1,000 Alex…..

  75. The Gun Control policies in Baltimore DO NOT WORK. Everyone should have the RIGHT to carry a side arm to defend themselves.

  76. Baltimore Liberal Logic:

    Appointed By The First Black President
    And they all BLAME RACISM

  77. This is the best news I read in a long time

  78. redknight says:

    I don’t believe it’s the FBI’s jurisdiction to do his dirty work. This mayor has a State Governor he goes to first for help. If the State Governor won’t help… that’s his problem. There’s no reason the Federal Government should go in there and do their jobs for them. That’s why his voters put him in office. If he can’t do his jog… fire him. Same for the Mayor of Chicago. These mayors can go pound sand.

  79. Gotta go along with Rahm, Jesse and Al. As long as you keep the killings black on black murder is a wink and a nod. Police interference is dealt with harshly. Besides, Surviving Planned Parenthood cannot go unpunished. This is 100% Democrat rule acting like Democrat rule.

  80. Clearly, when all is said and done, black lives don’t matter to black people.

  81. They are just getting some space to destroy.

  82. Oh this is rich. They declared war on the police and when the thugs take over, then it is time for the rest of the nation to come to their rescue. I hope nothing is done. They made their beds, now they can get raped in it.

  83. Suukai Juno says:

    Obama is giving $400,000 talks, jet skiing, parasailing, golfing, writing books for millions. Eric Holder has been hired to defend California against the Trump administration that wants to stop illegal immigration and sanctuary cities. Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch brought in the FBI to monitor major cities because they supposedly had racist police departments. Call these three up to solve your problems. Or Hillary Clinton, she has some spare time now but don’t (Eric)-Hold (er) your breath.

    And the democrats are still calling everyone misogynist, racist, Russian tools, trailer trash, bible holding gun toting white clanners whenever you speak up with common sense and asking people to be non hypocritical, moral and ethically honest.

    It’s deeply troubling, own your own bed and cleanup your house yourself.

  84. Lets see….Democrat city thugs…
    Get up when they want, go to school or work if they want, eat what they want, f-ck any girl they want, drip with bling and wear better shoes than i can, flash wads of cash, steal what gun the want, shoot and kill who they want, come home when they want, go to bed when they want.
    Their women are the fattest poor people in the world.

    People like me…….get up early, toil all day at work, put up with BS, most of my pay taxed, worry about bills, food, insurance, car payments, house payments, doctors payments, college now for our daughter, cheaper clothes, no vacation because the house needs painting.

    I turn on the news and see the savage crime of the cities work its way closer and closer to my home.

    I have to ask, who are the real slaves?
    What has my white privilege gained me in todays USA?

  85. Best post is above, I copy Gary’s post:

    This is a MD and Baltimore issue –

    1. Yes i read it.
      To liv ein Dem cities is their culture and a life they want to live.
      We just need to realize it and take care of our own and let them do what they like.

  86. Jeffrey Gee says:

    When you have open borders and violent street gangs like MS13 invade the country; identify the actual problem and don’t act so surprised!

  87. illinoisatlarge says:

    Wasn’t it this mayor who emasculated her police force and stopped them from following Baltimore’s laws?

  88. I live in a very rural Texas county with no blacks. Ammunition is sold here in the convenience stores, yet shootings are very rare. What’s more, the little town I live nearest is as poor as any ghetto. If the residents were black, liberals would have declared this little town a disgrace long ago and had it rebuilt at taxpayer expense. Because it has no blacks, this little town is so safe that there is no need to lock doors, take keys out of ignitions, and women can walk around any time of the day or night without worry.

    Liberals have figured this out since the places where they live tend to be some of the whitest places remaining. We Americans need to tell the liberals that we will live as they do, not as they say.

    1. Bingo!
      Withe FEW exceptions, when blacks move into a neighborhood, crime goes up!

      1. Wrong….with NO exceptions!

  89. It is the majority of blacks that are out of control!

  90. Maybe Black Lives Matter would have some suggestions.

    1. Yeah, right? I mean, they have ALL the answers,don’t they?

  91. This is what liberal run cities look like….out of control crime, and crumbling infrastructure…what else is new….Baltimore, Detroit, Cleveland….all look the same….other peoples money has all been used up….will they ever learn

  92. Kevin Kline says:

    Sounds like a diversity heaven to me.

  93. It continues to amaze me when the Leftists are so surprised by the results of their policy decisions. There is almost always someone telling them what that end result will be (ObamaCare will fail, insurance companies will drop out, more people will be shifted to medicaid than actual insurance, health outcomes won’t improve, etc.), but they insist that they feel what they are doing is right and so off they go. This article is a big “told ya so” moment for every Baltimore conservative (the 5 who haven’t moved out yet).

  94. Larry Sarvis says:

    What did we expect after decades of Dems preaching hate of their country and neighbors? Exam what is taught at home. This is a minority Democrat city. Sadly we have heard Dems, and their minorities claim America is not a good place to live. And they are trying to prove it. Time to clean up is and other Democrat cities. And time for the Dems to reform themselves before they kill us all.

  95. Baltimore literally deserves to go to hell. This is what they’ve been working toward for 50 years.

  96. Keith Hance says:

    Baltimore asked for this and they got it. Let the citizens keep shooting each other until there is no one left. Problem solved.

  97. Before getting help stop the sanctuary corrupt system. Then we talk!!!

  98. I don’t believe this is a racial thing and it sickens me to see some of these comments implying that it is all a result of the racial mix in these areas. This is mostly a result of wrongheaded policy. The only way race can be blamed is in that races are certainly treated differently by liberals who are always looking first to skin color and genitalia.

    Does anyone recall the mayor of Baltimore Stephanie Rawlings-Blake announcing “we also gave those who wished to destroy, space to do that as well”. Now what kind of policing is that? As political types love to say, ‘what kind of message does that send?’

    Liberal policies do not work. Because history is no longer taught, they think these ideas are new and innovative. Some liberal psych professor two years out of college with no kid of his own fancies himself an intellectual and cannot see the common sense forest for the trees of experience.

    Wake up America!

  99. The biggest failure of the liberal mindset is that they, apparently, have no concept, whatsoever, of ‘long term consequences.’

  100. Robert Blum says:

    Progressive ideals and values (disregard for ‘the law’) has reaped what has been sown.

  101. Some are getting this current Mayor confused with former Mayor and horrid DA. It was not this mayor who told the police to “stand down”. It was the last one Stephanie Rawlings Blake who I have NO doubt took orders from Obama and Jarrett. She then awarded Freddy Gray’s family $6.4 million before a single trial of cops accused (and not guilty). Then Rawlings Black said she would not run again for mayor. Guess she came in some money. The other issue with Baltimore is the former DA Marilyn Mosby who charged all the cops. I say she also took orders from the White House. Before Rawlings Black Baltimore had a peach of mayor Sheila Dixon ….here is some info on her. In November 2009, Dixon was tried for three counts of felony theft, three counts of misdemeanor embezzlement/misappropriation, and a single count of misconduct of office. The trial began on November 10, 2009, with Arnold M. Weiner serving as lead counsel. During the trial, two counts (one theft charge and one embezzlement/misappropriation charge) were dropped when prosecutors declined to call a key witness. On December 1, 2009, after seven days of deliberations, the jury returned verdicts on four of the five remaining counts. Dixon was found not guilty of the two felony theft charges, and one count of misconduct of office. She was found guilty on one misdemeanor embezzlement charge relating to her use of over $600 worth of retail store gift cards that were intended to be distributed to needy families. The jury was unable to reach a unanimous decision regarding the final charge of misdemeanor embezzlement.

    As the result of being found guilty, Dixon was at risk of being removed from office, and being stripped of her city retirement pension valued at over $80,000 per year for life.

  102. John Hill says:

    Oh yea and isn’t this the idiot mayor who said it was ok for blacks to riot because they have been oppressed and didn’t she and the governor blame the police for the violence. Pretty pathetic!! Don’t complain, you aholes created the problem by encouraging and condoning law breaking and violence, and let me guess, it’s blacks killing blacks. But such totally incompetent mental cases keep getting reelected by a bunch of pathetic clueless, deluded democratic loving idiot minorities and white brain dead voters

  103. Sam Anderson says:

    This is the perfect time for the Black Lives Matter folks to step in and restore peace and order!

  104. Scotty Gunn says:

    The cities are starting to explode. Baltimore, Chicago, even Philadelphia’s murder rate is up 20%. The Democrats have been “standing down” and backing for for several years now, and it is showing. Wait until summer time…

  105. Jim Morrison says:

    Just give the murderers some Space to Destroy and a CVS they can loot narcotic pain killers from.

  106. Gee Mayor Affirmative Action, kant find poolice dat want to work for her and her city has become a jungle. Oh I know dis beez mo racism from whitey. Les rob & burn whatever stores are left then we move on to another white city.

  107. Jim Morrison says:

    Maybe Barack Hussein will come and be a guest Community Organizer and fix things?

  108. David Foster says:

    Maybe if you did not attack the police as racists and prosecute them for doing their jobs, things might be a little different eh? Another FAILED leftist city

  109. Where you have a concentrated population of Africans you have Africa and all it’s inherent misery. This has been proven over and over in EVERY American city that suffers from that unfortunate demographic. The denial at this point would be laughable if it wasn’t so tragic.

  110. Ken Kaufman says:

    You cannot stop violence as long as democrats are running things, it is their way to be violent, ignore the law, and depend on government. Democrats are not smart enough to take care of themselves without government welfare.

  111. Ben Jones says:

    Tell law enforcement to stand down and take a back seat to the criminals does no good for the Community. This is a Democratic city controlled by the left who cannot understand as to why the crime rate is out of control.
    They asked for this problems, let them deal with it.

  112. Finally, a dem mayor who admits they’ve failed. Get the feds in there, along with the National Guard to first secure the ground.

  113. Susan Vue says:

    Take the father out of the family as Progs & Libs have and you end up with teenage pregnancy and boys running wild in the streets committing acts of violence. Of course Obama might have dumped a bunch of MS-13’s here also.

  114. Ron Mann says:

    Isn’t this the mayor and the current police chief the ones that wanted to let the rioters have their way? Well, here you go! They should evaluate-honestly who is killing whom. Then tell that population to stop it or go at them full force. Eventually the criminals will do themselves in. Also, remove the idiotic laws where people are not allowed to protect themselves-completely unconstitutional. Armed citizens alone will reduce the crime rate.

  115. John McElroy says:

    You ask for it, you got it. Vote Democrat!

  116. This is what happens when you toss the knowledge or respect for God, His laws and authority, or respect for others out of society – they see nothing wrong with killing others.

    It’s not about guns, mental illness or medications – it’s a heart issue about how children and adults are taught to handle anger in an absence of moral direction and authority (God’s).

    If people truly believed “love others as yourself”, or “thou shalt not kill” and that there would be severe consequences for their actions, the murder rate would go down.

    Taking the Ten Commandments and recognition of God out of schools and society sure is making things better, …right atheists…?

  117. Take the handcuffs off the COPS and let them do their job. Watch how fast your murder rate plummets.

  118. This is not a Federal issue. At best Baltimore should seek help from the State of Maryland. The answer is clear however, and has been done successfully by many cities larger than Baltimore. Sadly, the solution has not been implemented because of the inherent racism of Baltimore’s mayor and other city officials.

  119. I thought you guys in Baltimore give people room to destroy….was that WRONG?

  120. this is what happens we you attack your police force under false premises and your city is run by black racists.

  121. BTW, how many of you still think we can all live together in peace and harmony?

  122. When will black leaders across the country put away the hate and begin to address the real problems within their communities, rather than blaming their own shortcomings on other races?

  123. The first step in reducing murder and other felonies in Baltimore should begin with impeaching and removing Mayor Catherine Pugh as an incompetent bureaucrat who prefers her radical activism over law and order. Get her out and the cops might return to policing the dangerous ghettoes in the ghetto city of Baltimore.

    Democrats have pulled down such formerly great cities as Baltimore and Detroit with their Marxist/Democratic Party/Progressive methods of governing. The days of bilking the taxpayers with their taxation extortion to enhance their socialist ideas are coming to an end.

    When will the public fully realize that the Democrats do not represent the People? The Democrats are actively implementing the Establishment/Globalist’s agenda of changing America into a socialist paradise/hell.

    They want the People to believe it will be paradise on earth where everyone is equal without those evil billionaires sucking the money out of the economy to further enrich themselves.

    They conveniently forget to tell the People that without the incentives to create billionaires there wouldn’t be anyone around to build factories and create and profit from the other things they take for granted like TV, cell phones, and the internet. There wouldn’t be anyone around to create jobs with pay checks.

    The Democrats conveniently forget to tell the People that without the billionaires there would be no jobs to pay the taxes that rebuild the ghettoes after every Black riot.

    The ghetto gurus, Jackson and Sharpton, need the billionaires to continue for them to profit from their divisive and seditious activities yet they continue to incite other Blacks to riot against the system that creates wealth even for them.

  124. Susan Smith says:

    If it is as bad as she says, why is she not asking the governor to send in the national guard?

  125. Di Wood says:

    LOL …You can count on the FBI !!

  126. Tomas Cruz says:

    I guess they knew Obama wouldn’t do anything to help so they had to wait.

  127. Larry Jones says:

    The FBI won’t make a dent in the situation. If they really want Baltimore “settled,” call in the KKK.

  128. Kneegrows are the dog s h i t on the shoe of the Universe.

    I am done with them.

    Ship them ALL back.

  129. This is what happens when you cater and pander to feral apes. Maybe the mayor should just give the murderers “room” to murder like she did for the rioters!

  130. Al Krause says:

    (Washington Time 03/27) “Homeland Security added dozens of jurisdictions to its latest name-and-shame list of sanctuary cities, released Wednesday, including Baltimore, where the police commissioner has said officers would not work with federal agents to enforce immigration laws.”

    “If we support these police officers, who are out there working for the community every day, we’re going to be able to turn the tide,” says former U.S. Attorney for Maryland, now U.S. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

    Mr. Rosenstein should check with the police commissioner to see if there is a correlation.

  131. David Snyder says:

    Message to the rest of the population? Do not go to Baltimore for anything!!!!

  132. 13% of the population, 50+% of the violent crime in America

  133. Something magical happens to a firearm when it migrates from the peaceful, low crime areas of this great country into the cesspools of Detroit, Chicago, Baltimore et al.

  134. So does this mean they will start enforcing all the laws, to include immigration laws?

  135. Democrat on Democrat crime. MAGA

  136. Just Darwin thinning out the herd. What is more important is getting more of the Whiteness out of Baltimore for as Democrats will explain Whiteness is the cause of all the bad actions of minorities.

  137. The Governor must send in the National Guard and declare martial law. We are tired of our citizens being murdered by these thugs. These out-of-control situations must be quickly brought under control, even if it means the use of deadly force.

    So-called sanctuary cities contravene the rule of the law and the Constitution of the United States. If you are a police officer and you refuse to enforce – or assist federal agents with enforcing – US federal immigration laws then you lose your badge, period, NO exceptions.

    The late President Reagan sent in the National Guard when he was Governor of California in the late 1960s to quell the Berkeley riots and restore civil order, so there is precedent here for strong law-and-order enforcement actions. All it takes is courage. Does the current governor of Maryland have this courage?

  138. democRat run.
    democRat inhabited.
    What did you expect?

  139. Stan Pinkus says:

    You got what you and wacko liberals wanted now live with it…..

  140. Ken Kaufman says:

    Baltimore sounds like a safe city compared to Chicago. What do these cities have in common? Lots of democrats, and decades of running their utopias. Let them live in these places. The rest of us will vote with our feet and let the democrats live in their cities, like Detroit, Chicago, Baltimore, Cleveland, Oakland and LA. How is that working out for ya?

  141. James Graf says:

    I want to try to get my head around this, Baltimore, Detroit, SanFrancisco, Newark, Compton, Milwaukee, NewOrleans, ya know , these fascist Trump supporters are out of control, oh,,,wait, in the words of Jack Nicholson “A Few Good Men”, “Don,t I Feel like a f@#%$ a#$&¨%e

  142. Handcuff the CRIMINALS instead of the POLICE!

  143. Admitting that you have a problem is often the first step toward solving it. Kudos to Mayor Pugh for her humility and willingness to ask for help. May God have mercy on the city of Baltimore and grant his wisdom destroy the spirit of violence.

  144. Jack Gil says:

    Decades of liberal policies x sanctuary city status + room to destroy = high murder rate

    Congratulations Baltimore…you are approaching Chicago status

  145. Wall these sections of our cities off, install cameras, and let the Hunger Games begin.

  146. June Jullo says:

    Baltimore gets what it deserves. They are Liberal idiots.

  147. Few will agree with this command and as it stands now a far larger number of Black people facing this penalty would make us look like we are picking on them. The aim in this (not a game) is to protect those who simply desire to raise their family in peace.

    30“All murderers must be put to death, but only if evidence is presented by more than one witness. No one may be put to death on the testimony of only one witness. 31 Also, you must never accept a ransom payment for the life of someone judged guilty of murder and subject to execution; murderers must always be put to death. 32 And never accept a ransom payment from someone who has fled to a city of refuge, allowing a slayer to return to his property before the death of the high priest. 33 This will ensure that the land where you live will not be polluted, for murder pollutes the land. And no sacrifice except the execution of the murderer can purify the land from murder.c 34 You must not defile the land where you live, for I live there myself. I am the LORD, who lives among the people of Israel.” Numb 35

  148. Baltimore is now reaping what they sowed. Enjoy!

  149. Gerald Mucci says:

    Get rid of the BLM crowd, the Democrats, and the other cop haters and you will see things turn around.

  150. Paul Trott says:

    May 4, 2015
    “Baltimore Received $1.8 Billion from Obama’s Stimulus Law
    City burned despite ‘massive investment’ implemented by president”

    Now that the Obama cash machine stops the mayor cries help? America is tired of paying for your limo and 50 years of corrupt Democrat cultural welfare. Brothers and sisters deal with it, you asked for it.

  151. David Grimes says:

    Madame mayor, you created this dystopia. Now clean up your own dam mess.

  152. Slow/no-learner Baltimore SFBs electing 100% Democrats for decades is the disease that’s out of control, out of control murder stats is only a symptom. Same with all other democratic blue cities.

  153. Baltimore values: ghetto thug Ravens Ray Lewis hero gets away with double murder, just sayin’.

  154. Bill Redd says:

    No federal help for any sanctuary city.

  155. Neal Wright says:

    Have you noticed that “news” outlets have stopped using the word “gang”? Why is it that gangs and discussion of gangs have become off limits? And yes, that’s a rhetorical question.

  156. jdp…There was nothing stopping the Mayor from instituting tough curfews any body caught out side of curfew is arrested and pays heavy fines especially, if caught with a weapon.

  157. jdp…um the Mayor does not how to govern and therefore should step down. Nearly all Democratic run cities have the same problems called lawlessness

  158. jdp…Well if everyone kills each other off eventually it will become quiet.

  159. jdp…People are without God in their lives, become lawless, they unknowingly listen to the devil or his demons causing pain everywhere they go.

  160. Mark Mullins says:

    When a Mayor and an idiot prosecutor embark on the politics of personal destruction, targeting their own police force, in order to appease a Soros backed special interest group, you run the risk of emboldening your criminal element.
    Now law enforcement is afraid to do their job and the criminals know it.
    Feel good liberalism at it’s best.

  161. Mark Walsh says:

    These people have a complete lack of agency

  162. Samuel Green says:

    This is what happens when Baltimore’s mayor ordered her entire police force to STAND DOWN AND DO NOTHING during the Black Lives Matter riots, Mayor Stephanie had Barack Hussein Osama Bin Obama’s blessing in this.

    There were Youtube videos (that are now gone) that showed violent carjacking with children involved, while the police were under order to NOT INTERVENE.

    Baltimore’s mayor is stuck on stupid and Obama with his team of idiots such as Eric Holder thrived on this anarchy. The people of Baltimore are to blame for voting in this fool.

  163. Peter York says:

    why do people gussy-up their verbiage? I mean, ‘struggle’ is so lame. ‘struggle with hunger’ ? okay, how about ‘struggle with sleepiness’? or ‘struggle with underarm hair’? or ‘struggle with unpleasant odors’?

    or ‘reach out’. that’s the new one. in Baltimore, strangers ‘reach out’ and choke you so you ‘struggle with breathing’.

    anyway, why not take the attitude, ‘killers gotta kill’?

  164. Own it. Be proud of your thug-city

  165. Jack Riley says:

    Feral thug city is Baltimore.

  166. Roger Jones says:

    Morals and truth, the law becomes arbitrary when government rejects God as the ultimate authority.

  167. The FBI?! Under what theory of jurisdiction? You do understand who the FBI, ATF, DEA, DHS, ICE, etc. all work for don’t you? You think you’re juts gonna go around him and get the people who work for him to go it on their own? Sorry, but it looks like you’re gonna have to go ask HIM for help. Or at least the guy he picked to run the Department of Justice. Now who was that again?

    But you’ve got a little problem there, don’t you? What with the official endorsement of the BLM insanity, the city’s policy of refusing to enforce the law against rioters and arsonists, and your outright partisanship in the presidential election. And now you’re too embarrassed to humble yourselves to have to ask help from the people you officially vilified and used the power of the city of Baltimore against with blatantly partisan official statements and the like.

    So you’d better eat some humble pie. Or see how much help you get out of Annapolis.

  168. Baltimore, go choke to death on your BlackSludge. You wanted it, you promoted it, you encouraged it, and now it’s yours! Congrats, but please keep it to yourself. BTW, what’s Ms. Mosby’s take on this?

  169. Mark Mach says:

    Another liberal mayor too busy trying to stay out of jail to do the job. Sorry, the federal trough is empty thanks to this mayor’s friend and hero. Deal with what you and your party have created.

  170. Pay all saucer-lipped shooters $100 a head…for every one of their own they dispatch within the city limits…and provide them free ammo.

  171. Doug Wilson says:

    Typical of what happens when you arrest officers for doing their job.

  172. Baltimore doesn’t want federal interference, what with being a sanctuary city and all, am I right? Besides, Baltimore’s gun control laws should kick in any day now and that should help as well. So I see no reason spending federal money on a local problem, especailly when Obama and Baltimore’s mayor had this all sorted out and fine tuned months ago.

  173. Jose Jimenez says:

    The consequences of democrats and Affirmative Action.

    1. Grizz Mann says:

      After years of Republican control this brave Democrat is asking for help from the FBI.

  174. Maybe Baltimore can call the city of Ferguson for some help….

  175. Hopefully, some day very soon, Chicago will attack Baltimore or visa versa, and we’ll all be winners because of it…. (winner plays Detroit)…

  176. The Democrats have the plantation workers all riled up, again…..!

  177. The mayor looks as though she might be missing a few chromosomes…..

  178. This is not in the FBI’s charter nor is it Constitutionally allowable IMHO. The FBI investigates Federal crimes or cross-border activity. This is a local/state issue. If the current political structure is incapable of fixing, perhaps it is time to replace them with virtuous leaders?

  179. Perry Bonney says:

    “Mayor Asking FBI For Help With Investigating City Crime, Rising Murder Rate” – Article headline

    If those suspected of committing the murders are black or Hispanic, wouldn’t this be racism? Keep the FBI out, decommission the police department and let the constituents sort out who should live and who should die.

    The 1-percenters shouldn’t be getting involved with the people’s business.

  180. George Wyatt says:

    The Feds should stay out of Baltimore. Let BLM and Soros solve the problem. They caused it. It is their responsibility.

  181. Doug Day says:

    ANOTHER failed “Chocolate City”. How many does that make now, and what are we to deduce from the data?

  182. Paint the police as racist, give protesters “space to destroy”, then wonder what happened?
    Choke on it, Baltimore.

  183. The FBI should move their office to Howard County and not one agent to assist the City of Baltimore so long as they are a sanctuary city. And to all those alluding to this being the black community’s problem, you must not live in Baltimore. Because MS-13 is a major factor in the murder epidemic.

  184. well, i just don’t have an answer to this other than putting chicago and baltimore under military occupation.

  185. Whoa! The mayor asked the FBI for help?? That can’t be correct. I’m sure she meant to call the ACLU and the Black Lies Murder anarchists instead.
    After all, they seem to have ‘all the answers’ on what the ‘community’ needs so it turns into a ‘black utopia’ where there’s no evil police tramping on peoples civil rights, and crime magically disappears.

  186. Brad Miller says:

    Real simple; legalize concealed carry (CCW) by law abiding citizens who take a gun safety course and pass a background check. Then it won’t just be the criminals carrying guns and crime will plummet by 30% on day #1. CCW should be legal in all 50 states. Only the liberal Democratic Party run states/cities ban CCW and those are the places with all the violent crime.

  187. Brad Miller says:

    Legalize CCW, criminals hate it when their victims shoot back!

  188. Baltimore Mayor: “We gave them space to destroy”

    How’s that working out for ya now Mayor?

  189. Three words will solve this problem: STOP AND FRISK.

  190. BLM should take care of the problem, they have all the answers.

  191. Easily solved. Issue concealed carry permits to ordinary people, and not just the very wealthy and connected. Every State that has, has seen their crime plummet.

  192. Your a sanctuary city, what the hell did you expect. If the US taxpayers have to clean this up every illegal is going first and then we will deal will the US citizens who are law breakers.

  193. John Magee says:

    What a bore. The mayors of cities like Baltimore joined Obama’s war on the police so let them wallow in the mess they have created.

  194. Gene Evensen says:

    This moron is just noticing this now lol

  195. so she goes after the FBI NOW SHE WANTS THEIR HELP. TFB

    First and foremost, Pugh prioritized the United States Department of Justice investigation into the Baltimore Police Department following the death of Freddie Gray, before the inauguration of Donald Trump.[16][17] In April 2017, Judge James K. Bredar approved the consent decree signed by Pugh and former acting U.S. Assistant Attorney General Vanita Gupta, rejecting an objection by new U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions

  196. I would suggest dropping a MOAB on Baltimore but I am afraid it would be a waste the people of Baltimore probably could not tell the difference.

  197. ‘Baltimore’s mayor is asking for help from the FBI as the city struggles to contain a soaring murder rate.” REALLY? She sided with Black Lives Matter, indicted innocent police on phoney murder charges, publically decried law enforcement and now she wants the FBI to take her bacon out of the fire?

    Sorry, that’s not what my taxes pay for. Obummer and Clinton may have used the FBI for their personal hit squad, but the leftist liberals cannot cry wolf and expect the FBI to show up at their beck and call. Enough of the cronyism already. If the mayor cannot manage the City and do something about the black crime and murder rates, both she and the Poilce Chief ought to reside and allow the citizens to special election for people who can manage the city. Figure it out for yourself.

  198. Jump round spin around pick a bail o’ cotton….

  199. Brant Young says:

    Wow. Who saw this coming? (sarcasm)

  200. Frank Nelson says:

    Scratch a liberal, scratch a moron whose idea of “fixing” a fire is to add more gasoline. To members of the Baltimore PD: GET OUT!!! This woman is incompetent and covering her ass. She couldn’t make it better, she’s not capable and she’s going to need more scape goats. That will be police offers. The black community got the police and power structure they wanted. Time to suck it up, bullet sponges, you’re getting what you asked for and no law enforcement officer should go out of his or her way for such a feckless and lying community. Have Black Lies Matter do your policing.

  201. Dan Higgins says:

    Where you have a concentrated population of Africans you have Africa and all it’s inherent misery. This has been proven over and over in EVERY American city that suffers from that unfortunate demographic. Any denial at this point would be laughable if it wasn’t so tragic.

  202. I am not sure, but didnt the mayor of Baltimore tell her cops that “we need to give protesters room to destroy”???

  203. Anti-racists say there is a RACE problem that can only be solved when the third world pours into EVERY White country and “assimilates.”

    What if I said there was a RACE problem that could only be solved if hundreds of millions of non-Blacks were brought into EVERY Black country? How long before people realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem, but the conclusion to the BLACK problem?

    They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-White.

    Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White.

    1. Chocolate Cities like Baltimore, New Orleans, Detroit, St Louis, etc prove that liberal policies BREED BLACK VIOLENCE.

  204. Mike Herman says:

    So cities can ask the feds to help with law enforcement, but feds can’t ask cities for help?

  205. Harold Lowe says:

    She has a whole police force, what’s the matter with using THAT, it ain’t rocket surgery. May be she should call the previous mayor and see what she would do. LOL, these leftists are astoundingly clueless. Seriously she should call Giuliani.

  206. Maybe the 3200 police officers working there can be tasked to DO THE JOB! The entire system is FUBAR’d because they refuse to allow the police to do their jobs…Sweep the ghettos, increase the night shift and monitor the results…I live in philly; we’re not much better…But as a resident for over 50 years, I know EXACTLY where to find the criminals and The police do also…

    In law, language is everything… They don’t call it the “Criminal justice system” for nothing…It is exactly as it states…It may never be the Victim justice system..Then all the judges, lawyers, cops and jails would have nothing to do…

  207. This is what you get for wasting so many years on gun control thinking that would do anything to lower crime.

  208. Baltimore tied the hands of their police force after Freddie Grey and now they wonder why petty criminals (who would have otherwise been put in jail) proceed to spiral all the way into murder. I lived in Baltimore for many many years and hung out in some of the worst neighborhoods and I can tell you that these people are not a moral people. They do what they want and take what they want with zero respect for anybody but themselves.

  209. Call in the police, national guard, whatever it takes to shut this down. Normal, law abiding citizens are sick to death of these violent, law breakers.

    Us “deplorables” had to live under 8 years of Obama’s tyranny. We weren’t violent about it. We didn’t riot!

    Obama hated Americans, the Constitution, and free market capitalism. He destroyed our economy with measures like Obamacare and immigration amnesty. My health insurance bill is up to $555/month thanks to Obamacare. (Compare this to my $25/month auto insurance from Insurance Panda or my $10/month renters insurance… both private enterprise!)

    Obama’s plan for America is certainly playing out. City after city will face violent socialist riots until there are none left (Ferguson, Baltimore, Camden, Detroit). Obama, Clinton, and George Soros will laugh from their gated-communities while America burns.

  210. How is that give them room to destroy thing working out for you Baltimore?
