I hope the riots have ended O'Malley's POTUS chances. One clear winner is the Fraternal Order of Police, which every LE officer in America should join asap, as vindictive, aggrieved Mosbys everywhere are eager to make a name for themselves. I'm looking forward to the inevitable cage-match between MS "It's our time" Mosby and Mayor "It's just property" R-B for supremacy.

Jane,
Does area need to be equal between the two new countries? I say we pack them in tight like they seem to prefer their subjects. That way all of H's villagers can be close to help raise one another. Another neat benefit will be the reduction of their collective carbon footprint thereby saving the planet for the rest of us.

that was what most concerned David Simon, not the lives lost, businesses destroyed, but that the GOP might benefit from this disaster,

and why did we hear of Simon, because of something called the Marshall Project, spearheaded by this fellow:

Because we will have secure borders. They need permission to fly over.

I don't have a link, but the county-by-county map after the 2014 election was very sparsely dotted with blue in the expected locales. Plenty of land mass to choose from for reality-based America.

The most important factor in any division, though, is keeping the good golf courses. That, unfortunately, will be a real problem. With only one exception, Augusta National, the other top-ten tracks are deep blue. Dang it!!

Well Gentlejim, if Obama or Kerry do the negotiating they will end up with San Francisco for their entire country.

While "failing" Americans try to raise our kids right, save to buy a home, save for our kids education, work hard, .... the left is constantly peddling their poison - lust, envy, sloth,...to OUR kids too. All they do is make our lives harder.

Instead of listening to leftists piss & moan about how lousy America is...How bout Baltimore let itself be the ultimate leftist city & let's see how all their great ideas work.
...legalize pot, hell legalize all drugs. Close down the "evil" police force. Start bringing all the illegals there, since the left tells us that is a positive thing. Raise the minimum wage to 20...no...50 bucks an hour & let us see how many businesses open there. Put an abortion "clinic" on every street corner & let them operate with NO regulations.
Give out needles to all drug users. Ban cars & make everyone walk or ride a bike. Outlaw the use of fossil fuels...only solar panels are allowed in "green" Baltimore. Shut down churches. Build more mosques. Stop immunizations. Stop selling meat & make the people have vegan or vegetarian diets. Only build tiny houses out of recycled "green" materials. Peddle sex, sex, sex at every opportunity as the #1 most important thing in all of life. Sex anytime, anywhere, with anybody or anything.

Take all the leftist ideas & make Baltimore implement them to the nth degree.
Baltimore can be a 3rd world slum like millions & millions of places around the world.

Janet, great post 9:59. It's painful to realize what America has become. My boy is going into High School this fall. He is just 14, and he is a normal boy with EXTREMELY HIGH MORALS and STANDARDS. He is enrolled in THEEEE BEST H.S. in Wisconsin, and he will be an Eagle Scout just after turning 15. He sings in the choir, and he he performed on GUITAR with CHEAP TRICK a year and a half ago at 12. He came in 3rd in State forensics tournament as both a 7th and 8th grader. He knows HOW TO THINK.
He is going to make it. God help those who are slovenly. There is an ill wind blowing, and we need to be prepared.

Gus, no homebrew, drank it all again, need to get supplies and make more. Drinking a Sierra Nevada Torpedo (pinkie extended, natch). Helped some scouts get their recycling badges this morning -- dropped two TVs (with dials, not remotes, they had never seen such contraptions up close) off at the town free electronics drop off. I put the TVs in the truck myself, but it took two modern high schoolers to unload them into the bin. Gus Jr would have taken one under each arm. ; )

Catching up after a long day. I haven't seen this outrage discussed: Marilyn Mosby dissing investigations in other cities.

“It’s been 78 days since Michael Brown was shot in the street by a police officer,” Mosby said in October at her alma mater, Tuskegee University in Alabama. “It’s been 101 days since Eric Garner was choked to death in New York by a police officer, and 54 days since the New York City medical examiner ruled that incident a homicide. Neither has resulted in an indictment.”

As if (a) those have anything to do with the case she's responsible for; and (b) those haven't been handled properly. She ought to be fired just for that comment.

HAIKU GUS

JimmyK, why do you hate BLACK WYMYN.

Not a good post to end on, Gus, which is the sole reason I'm posting this.

Jane on Ipad

Someone said that before she was elected 4 months ago, the AG worked for an insurance company, which means her job was to work on personal injury cases. My guess is she never has tried a case. My guess is she has no experience in criminal law, or much of anything.

The absurdity of her age, her inexperience, her politics is beyond anything I can think of.

The Science is Settled ...

How Climate Model Complexity Influences Sea Ice Stability

We find that the stability of the ice cover vastly increases with the inclusion of spatial communication via meridional heat transport or a seasonal cycle in solar forcing, being most stable when both are included. If the associated parameters are set to values that correspond to the current climate, the ice retreat is reversible and there is no instability when the climate is warmed. The two parameters have to be reduced by at least a factor of 3 for instability to occur. This implies that the sea ice cover may be substantially more stable than has been suggested in previous idealized modeling studies.

... or more simply, Al Gore was WRONG when he said the Arctic would be "ice free" this year.

Amen, Clarice. As Sgt. Friday would say, "only the facts, ma'am".

Every time I see Mosby's mug I see a person scared and out of their depth. She and her colleagues are going to get rolled big time. When that happens Baltimore will burn to the ground because no one will want to save it.

Rich Lowry in NY Post on Brilliant Baltimore
Tax strategy

“Officials raised property taxes 21 times between 1950 and 1985,” Steve Hanke and Stephen Walters of Johns Hopkins University write in The Wall Street Journal, “channeling the proceeds to favored voting blocs and causing many homeowners and entrepreneurs — disproportionately Republicans — to flee.

“It was brilliant politics, as Democrats now enjoy an eight-to-one voter registration advantage.”


DebinNC

I don't see fear in Mosby. I see jubilant defiance. The chronology of events in Claire's piece reminds me of questions I keep failing to see answers to in the news. Whose job was it to strap FG into a seat. Mosby noted that Ofc. Goodson failed to do so 5 separate times, which would seem to indicate she thinks that's Goodson's job. If so, why charge the bike officers for failing to do so? The chronology also includes 25 yo Ofc. Porter, the youngest of the 6, showing up along the route to the hospital, checking on FG, and moving him from the floor to the bench. The 45 yo driver Ofc. Goodson was very senior to 25 yo Porter, so why does Mosby think Porter should have taken independent action and called EMTs when the more experienced Goodson hadn't/wouldn't? Mosby is a disgrace.

DebinNC

Oops. "Clarice", not "Claire" (my youngest's name)

maryrose

Who won the fight

clarice

Thanks. Mosby is some hell of a DA. Can there be any question that the three white cops were charged only for "diversity's" sake?

Interestingly the Baltimore Sun is reporting that twitter and media feeds on the riots were traced and did not originate in Baltimore, but in hostile countries. Who'd a thunk it? Stirring up this kettle for hostile purposes?

maryrose

jimmyk

Excellent Pieces, Clarice, though I didn't get this:

[M]any black Baltimoreans in the riot area turned out to try to prevent the looting and to stand as shield between the cops and the rioters. Bless the peacemakers.

Was the second group acting in protection of the cops, or protecting the rioters from the cops? I presume you mean the former, but the coverage I saw showed the police lined up with shields at what looked like 100 yards distance from the action. Was there a situation where the cops actually needed civilian help to protect themselves?

jimmyk

Since Mosby cited the Michael Brown and Eric Garner cases in her little speech I alluded to in my 1:01am, I'm wondering why she didn't also cite the crusades.

BOzo sees himself as a brilliant chessmaster, and I think he's purposely stoking these racial hotspots nationwide to facilitate his Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing boondoggle.

Extraneus

There is another act in this play:

The cops back off on the inner cities.

To protect themselves, they reduce interactions with the criminal element, thus allowing crime levels to increase.

This is what the situation was in NY City before Giuliani. I knew cops who'd describe how they'd get a call about a crime in progress in a certain area, give it ten or fifteen minutes to resolve itself, and only then show up at the scene.

Why bother risking your life or livelihood to protect people who think you're the enemy, when the politicians think so, too? It's a natural reaction.

DebinNC

Michael Goodwin in the NY Post last week wrote about Baltimore needing to adopt Guiliani's "broken window policing" strategy that's worked well for 20 yrs.

"Consider Baltimore’s longstanding crime problem. It is one of the most violent cities in the country and has the fifth-highest murder rate, according to the FBI.
With a population of about 622,000, Maryland’s largest city had 235 murders in 2013. New York, with 8.4 million people, had 333 murders. If New York had Baltimore’s per-capita rate, it would have had 3,173 murders. That gives you a sense of how dangerous Baltimore was before the riots, and how little impact police there had on preventing crime. They lost the war long before this week’s mayhem."

DebinNC

This is what the situation was in NY City before Giuliani. I knew cops who'd describe how they'd get a call about a crime in progress in a certain area, give it ten or fifteen minutes to resolve itself, and only then show up at the scene

What will inner city white LE do now that shooting them is becoming a sport, complete with FB pics accompanied by gleeful, congratulatory comments? White officers must be leaving in droves for less pay but more chance of survival elsewhere.

The fight last night was pretty, no very, boring.

Mostly just a chessmatch with Mayweather dancing around keeping Pacquiao at bay. Pacquiao could never figure out how to get to him. Mayweather would land a few punches and win the round.

Rinse and repeat.

There was only one punch that really hurt either fighter - Pacquiao delivered it and Mayweather covered up - but Pacquiao couldn't punch through Mayweather's defense and gave up after 20 seconds or so so he wouldn't punch himself out. Other than that, just a bunch of jabs and crosses that were aimed only at scoring points with the judges.

Oh well. Good food and friends, so an evening well-spent. But it will be another 25 years at least before I spend any money to watch a boxing match.

Holy carp. I don't guess I've ever intentionally done the math on how long it's been since I started college. Now I feel old.

'If he says he's a woman, then he's a woman'

I admire the way Corporal Clinger was treated on Mash. If he wanted, for whatever reason, to wear dresses, so long as he did his job and didn’t interfere with others, that was fine.

Clinger didn’t force his dresses on anyone else or claim that children should should be taught in public schools that anything goes (and be taught how).

Clinger was not a Johnny Weir, who was trying to shock to draw attention to himself (except when Clinger dressed up as the Statue of Liberty when General MacArthur drove through.) :-)

There is room in my world for Bruce Jenner next to Clinger, but I push back at feminazi’s of whatever sex.
