Residents in Baltimore have been celebrating the charges brought in the death of Freddie Gray for the past two days. Even though there is no definitive answer as to what caused Gray’s death, and certainly no convictions of the police charged, celebrants partied in the streets.
On Saturday protestors held a rally where they listened to black luminaries like Malik Shabazz, former national chairman of the Black Panther party, declare that black people “don’t need police,” and that they can rely on gang members of the Bloods and Crips as the “defenders and protectors” of their community. What could possibly go wrong?
Shabazz brings Bloods & Crips up on stage, calls them "the new generation of defenders and protectors" of community. We "don't need police."
Meanwhile, around 6 pm Eastern time in New York City, a member of the NYPD was shot in the face as he confronted a suspect in Queens. Twenty-five-year-old plainclothes officer Brian Moore and his partner were fired upon as they pulled up alongside a man acting suspiciously. Moore was placed into a medically induced coma following emergency surgery and is currently in critical condition.

Aseel al-Nujaifi, governor of Nineveh province in Iraq, confirmed on Friday that the IS terrorists executed hundreds of Yezidi captives.
“A new crime was committed by Daesh (Islamic State) against our Yezidi people on Friday,” al-Nujaifi said in a statement.
“IS gangs executed hundreds of innocent Yezidi prisoners.”
“These terrorists are degrading Islamic religion. Muslim clerics should bear their responsibility to show the public the reality of this terrorist group, demonstrating how it is diametrically opposed to the correct, tolerant teachings of the Islamic religion,” al-Nujaifi added.
It is estimated that at least 600 Yazidi men were executed.
Commenting on the incident, the Yezidi writer and researcher Salem Rashidani told ARA News: “We have received reports saying that IS militants executed the Yezidi men in the district of Talafar in Nineveh province, after isolating them from their families, throwing their corpses in the valley near the city.
Forget Baltimore for now. This kind of vicious evil is running unchecked, and the Obama administration has little inclination or motivation to actually take a stand on it.
The youngest chief prosecutor in the nation, Baltimore City attorney Marilyn Mosby, who has been on the job just four months, charged six Baltimore police officers with over twenty-five offenses related to the death of Freddie Gray. The charges range from second degree depraved heart murder to various manslaughter charges, as well as assault, misconduct, and false imprisonment. Each charge carries with it its own several, unique elements that must be proven in order to justify a conviction. Considering the sparse facts that we have now, and the laundry list of offenses, this is going to be a tall task for prosecutors.
With the city of Baltimore still on edge after the riots spurred by Freddie Gray’s death while in police custody the Fraternal Order of Police, aka the police union, published an open letter asking the State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby to recuse herself from the case and request a special prosecutor.

You may have caught this little scene yesterday, as Al Sharpton escorted a wide-eyed Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake—she followed behind like a frightened puppy—from a press conference, flanked by security, who then got into a scuffle with a FOX news reporter when he simply tried to ask the mayor a couple of questions. You can watch […]

Here’s what happened: And here’s what’s left of what used to be a CVS pharmacy: Well, thanks to cameras cameras everywhere—the surveillance […]
Let’s just call him Captain Kick Ass. Because Baltimore City Police Commissioner Anthony Batts has proven himself to be more than just a talking head. While some so-called leaders prefer to stand at the back of the line—cough, President in Name Only—Police Commissioner Batts is not one of them. Check out these photos of Commissioner […]
Some critics are now coming down on “Mother of The Year”, Toya Graham, mother of Michael Singleton, who publicly slapped and cursed at her son after learning that he was partaking of the Baltimore riots. The rhetoric goes something like this: that America is “celebrating” the beating of a black child. That Toya Graham’s behavior […]
