re: So Proud To Be A Baltimoron

I expect nothing less than this happening in Baltimore. My friend was in town (who's white) and she sometimes wears a red bandana and we were supposed to be hanging out in Baltimore.

Yeahhhhh. I told her she probably shouldn't do that.

I mean how is police presence in Baltimore anyway? I swear every time I'm down there I never see a cop and with the amount of seedy people and the obvious drug presence, especially around Camden Yards and heading towards UMBC, I'm surprised seeing a cop is a rare occassion.

because they're too busy with the less dangerous/more profitable 'criminals' i.e. moving vehicle violations.

re: So Proud To Be A Baltimoron

It looks like he was standing right outside the mitchell courthouse/old post office where prostitutes stand around. Its a block away from the strip club area.

While what happened is a shame and wrong, it wasnt unexpected. Guy was blackout drunk, hanging out where he shouldnt be hanging out and making himself any easy target for a guy to just reach in and grab his wallet . . . atleast it was one punch and not a beat down.

almost exact same thing happened to me but i woke up in the hospital and needed facial reconstructive surgery ...... when i lived in San Diego.

You do realize that he's going to toss any letter from Lancaster, PA into his "Racist Hate Mail" bin, right?

Re: So Proud To Be A Baltimoron

More from my beautiful city ...

Witness claims youths yelled 'this is for Trayvon' in beating - baltimoresun.com

Crux of it ... black teens beat up Hispanic guy shouting "This is for Trayvon". On the Baltimore Sun website this article ran in standard print below the story in large bold print with a picture "Trayvon Martin a 'symbol' of issues facing blacks in the city, protestors say".

I leave it to you to decide what that says about the state of the city.

I know good and evil exist and it is our lot. It's just depressing sometimes.

(And, yes, 12th, I am talking just to hear myself talk).
Lol, I *love* words like "inhumane" and "crime against humanity" and similar terms. NOTHING we see or read about through history's atrocities, including messed up stuff today, was ever "inhuman". We do it to ourselves all the time, as regular humans. In groups or with any emotional excuse, humans can be the worst of all God's creatures.

Re: So Proud To Be A Baltimoron

As terrible as that sounds, at this point things like that are almost to be expected because of the national outcry to the case. I have really avoided discussing the case with my friends and coworkers because if you're not saying "kill Zimmerman" they don't wanna hear it. And my entire opinion on the subject is that I wasn't there and I don't know what happened, so I'm not going to judge anybody for it. The sad thing about the whole case is that a human life was lost over some bs.

Anyways, my main thought in regards to this undeserved beating is that, even as we advance, and the human race evolves, along with technology and so much other stuff in this world, there are still some things lagging behind, namely education (and as a bullet point: understanding the judicial system, regardless of whether you think it works or not), and it's probably going to take hundreds of years before we get rid of the popular "burn the witch" mentality still prevalent today. I have coworkers that I think are riding the Zimmerman hate train just because it's the popular opinion. Not that that should be too surprising.

Re: So Proud To Be A Baltimoron

Not far from Baltimoronia and related to that racist beating:


The words "kill Zimmerman" and "kill whities" painted on a building before it was set on fire.

SHOCK: ‘KILL ZIMMERMAN’ SPRAY PAINTED ON SIDE OF PENN. BUSINESS BEFORE IT’S SET ON FIRE
Jul. 16, 2013 3:20pm Erica Ritz


Firefighters responding to a call in Chester County, Pennsylvania were alarmed to find the words “Kill Zimmerman” spray painted on the burning building they were tackling, local ABC affiliate WPVI-TV reports.

Sources told The Daily Local that responders also found the words “Kill Whites” written on another part of the building.

Firefighters Find Kill Zimmerman Spray Painted on Burning Pennsylvania Building

Firefighters arrived at ProSigns, a company that makes commercial signs for businesses, around 11:20 p.m. on Sunday night. They quickly took care of the fire and managed to put it out before anyone was hurt.

“Considering the graffiti, investigators immediately suspected the blaze was intentionally set,” WPVI-TV writes. “On Monday, the fire was ruled an arson, fueled by an unknown accelerant.”

The business owner has no idea why ProSigns would have been targeted, but investigators put the damage at around $500,000.

Part of that comes from an “antique Studebaker vehicle was set ablaze inside the building,” a friend of the business’ owner told the Daily Local.

Officials have yet to divulge many details, but say the investigation is ongoing.

A Florida jury cleared George Zimmerman of all charges on Saturday in the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin last year, unleashing a firestorm of controversy in what was already a highly politicized case.

Protests are planned across the country, and there have been reports of both violence and threats of violence in relation to the case.

Re: So Proud To Be A Baltimoron

Jury Finds Roderick Scott Not Guilty - Rochester

This whole thing reminds me of a case from my hometown a couple years ago.... Don't remember such a media circus then..

(Please note that I understand that there are some differences in the cases where someone was clearly up to no good in the above link, and there doesn't seem to be anything to indicate Martin was before this incident).

I just thought it was interesting.
