Baltimore isn't Ferguson. Baltimore has a black Mayor, black Police Chief, as well as a majority black City Council and police force. The Baltimore riots, unlike Ferguson, had little to do with race, and much to do with class, and a police department that suffers from a long culture of criminalizing everyone in the city. Baltimore is a great city that's unfortunately plagued with poverty, corruption in the public schools, and a sense of hopelessness for far too many citizens. 

But the real Baltimore is seen in the literally thousands of people who came out on Tuesday, and again today, to help clean the streets following Monday night's riots. No one wants this situation to get any worse. No one wants more rioting and violence. We definitely have a long way to go, and if there's any silver lining to this terrible week, it's that maybe, just maybe, the people in charge will start to change the way they've been operating for the past fifty years and start helping this city reclaim it's greatness.

Baltimore is usually a friendly city, where strangers are often addressed as "hon." It's also where stores were looted and cars burned following Monday's funeral for Freddie Gray.

Well said, Charlie! Marginalized people have incredible frustration, anger and hopelessness. If nothing is done to give them back their dignity, any spark could could set off violence.
That people came together to help clean up afterwards is a hopeful sign.

Watching these opportunists destroy my city is not what I felt like doing today. These are NOT protesters, they are criminals. NO ONE is protesting anything at all. Baltimore is a war zone right now.

Indigent people are ignorant, for the most part, and easily manipulated. Evil people know that. Just something to ponder.

My Night at the Orioles Game During a Riot

Took the Girl to the Orioles game last night. It was Safety Patrol night so all of her friends were there, too. Baltimore is currently having for lack of a better term a "Ferguson moment", and there were planned protests all over downtown Bmore. 

The first sign of trouble was when we got on the light rail (sort of a bus on a track) and the driver told us he wouldn't be going all the way to the stadium, and had us all get off two stops early so he could turn around. We all walked to the game from there. 

The next sign that things were really getting out of hand was when they came over the loud speakers to say that "The Mayor of Baltimore and the Chief of police have asked that all fans remain in the stadium until further notice due to an ongoing public safety issue." So we were basically on lockdown in the stadium due to rioting. A lot of the kids were upset and didn't understand what was going on. "Sorry kids, the world is shite."

The game went into extra innings which helped to keep everyone calm since we at least had entertainment I guess. we were eventually allowed to leave with a warning to avoid the Inner Harbor, which is the touristy spot right up the road from the stadium. me and a couple of other dads managed to get all of our girls (we all had daughters, no sons at the game) into a friends truck so they could get home safely. Us dads all braved the streets to get back to the light rail since there wasn't room for all of us in the truck.

Anyway, rather unclimactically, we made it to the light rail and there no safety issues at all that we encountered. The rioting was all on the other side of the city at that point. The Orioles did manage to pull out a win, and we all got home safe, so I guess all things considered it was a good and certainly memorable night. 

I do of course hope that some good comes from the protesting, but I'm also grateful that I didn't have to walk my kid through a warzone. Also, after seeing how bad things can get in other cities, I think Bmore got off easy. I'm thankful that it wasn't worse than it was. 
After a few hours of peaceful demonstrations, scores of rowdy protesters crowded outside of Camden Yards.

That my friends was NOT a "protest." That was just like the Ferguson (sp) RIOTS. No protest about it!
