On Sunday August 2, 2015 due to the recent spike in violent crime, Baltimore’s Interim Police Commissioner Kevin Davis announced the establishment of BFED, where federal agents from FBI, ATF, DEA and other agencies will be embedded in the Baltimore homicide unit. Baltimore Sun Newspaper
I don’t even know where to begin with this one!
Political: For generations the city of Baltimore has been a Democrat stronghold. The Mayor is a Democrat, the City Council President is a Democrat, and all 14 districts of of the city are represented by Democrats. That right there is a problem. When you have 1 school of thought you get no new perspective, and clearly this is not working.
Economic: For a city to thrive and grow there MUST be something positive to attract new blood and money. Who in there right mind other than a speculator investor would want to invest in a city that is at the top of every list you don’t even want to be on!
Education: If we are to believe what has been said, the riots were all started by school children during school hours on school grounds. That to me brings up a couple of points why are our children not being engaged? Clearly if these children are capable of organizing a citywide “event” all online without being detected they have too much time on their hands, are not being challenged or engaged, and CLEARLY are more intelligent than they are given credit for cause lets keep it real, I’ve seen grown folks with staff not being able to pull together an event with lead time and a budget!
Socio- community: There is a breakdown everywhere! The family,the schools, and the police are all running amok! The police blame the politicians, the politicians blame the feds and the FEDS blame the community.
The scary thought is Baltimore is just one example of the cities across the country with a rising violent crime epidemic. Most of the areas are urban and predominately minority. Some say it is a concerted effort to lead us to a federal police state, others say it is a breakdown of the family unit.
What do you say?
