Baltimore People Gather To Ask For Protection In Their City

As Justice Department civil rights lawyers held a meeting to talk about overhauling the Baltimore police department, another group of Baltimore residents gathered to beg the police to fix the crime in their neighborhoods.

The meetings show a disconnect between those who are concerned about crime and those worried about police reform, reports the Washington Post. Neither group was aware the other one was meeting.

About 40 people, most of them older black women, gathered in a West Baltimore church basement to ask police to return order to their community.

A gas station owner whose parking lot had been taken over by loiterers begged for help; a 17-year old was also fatally shot there. Another man asked about the foot patrol officers that were promised to the community.

I'm sure the BPD wants to increase their presence - and increase the number of targets from which the thugs can choose.

Baltimore residents refuse to understand that their tribal mentality doesn't mix well with civilized societies.

I sympathize with their concern and want the Police to restore the neighborhoods to a safe place. What I don't understand is they elect these Liberal DemocRATs over and over and allows them to give away money if these trouble makers file a lawsuit against the City. This is contradictory and they have to make up their minds on what they want. I support the Police on not jeopardizing their lives until they are allowed to do their job with support from the Liberal DemocRAT Politian in Baltimore and the Federal Government.
