Kirsters Baish| It seems as though the city of Baltimore is seeing the consequences of trashing police officers. The city has no one to blame but those who have alienated and threatened police. Last year, the city of Baltimore set a new record, but not the kind that they should brag about. Baltimore set a new record for the most murders per capita in the city’s entire history.
Numbers this high haven’t been seen by Baltimore since 2015. 2015 was the year that Freddie Gray died from injuries he received during the time he was in police custody. Remember back to the Freddie Gray case and the Miachel Brown case. The Black Lives Matter movement all across the country fed off of these two cases. Massive numbers of protesters gathered in order to chastise police officers. They chanted, “Pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon” during riots, which helped to push hatred towards law enforcement.
The city of Baltimore has been suffering ever since.
It doesn’t surprise me that they are blaming this on law enforcement. They really should be blaming Black Lives Matter for starting the anti-police movement in the first place. Liberal politicians have only added fuel to the fire in the fight against police in our country. They are to blame.
Conservative Tribune reported:
He told NPR that he blamed progressives, other activists, politicians, and liberal journalists for fueling the anti-police movement that lead to Baltimore’s problems. He also said that police distanced themselves from communities, and members of the community distanced themselves even further.
Unfortunately, it shouldn’t be much of a surprise that the murder rate in Baltimore has reached an all-time high. Criminals and thugs usually do their best work when police aren’t around to stop them from committing crimes. If BLM has protested police and threatened them to the point that they can no longer protect the city, isn’t it their own fault?
Black Lives Matter has a totally racial justice agenda that has proved to be a threat to police officers as well as citizens who are hoping to live in Baltimore without fearing that they may die when walking down the street. Things will not change as long as the racist activist group keeps promoting their anti-police agenda.
