    Fun and games in Baltimore.

    According to some reports, it appears that a lot of the looting is local teenagers organizing flash mobs on social media.

    'We endorse the idea of voluntarism; self-responsibility: Family, friends, and churches to solve problems, rather than saying that some monolithic government is going to make you take care of yourself and be a better person. It's a preposterous notion: It never worked, it never will. The government can't make you a better person; it can't make you follow good habits.' - Ron Paul 1988

    What is interesting is that police were throwing bricks back. Of course, this kind of response serves to solicit a prescribed response. I believe that video of police throwing bricks is up at and running over at Ruptly.

    It would be pretty stupid to add more cops to the situation.

    If it's violence against cops, just get the cops out of the way and there would be no violence.

    Putting them out there in lines is just asking for somebody to take a pot shot at em.

    Pull back and wait until they all kill each other, run out of crap to steal or get bored and move on.

    Yeah, the police just have to show they are in control.

    Hope they don't get surprised.

    Ya but that would just encourage more violence against cops, if that tactic is allowed to work.

    Therefore, more violence against the civilians is necessary, to end their more violence against cops.

    Here is The Mayor of Baltimore's take on that:

    Rawlings-Blake stated:

    "And I've made it very clear that I worked with the police and instructed them to do everything that they could to make sure that the protesters were able to exercise their right to free speech. It's a very delicate balancing act because while we try to make sure that they were protected from the cars, and the other things that were going on, we also gave those who wish to destroy, space to do that as well

    Inspired by US Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, this site is dedicated to facilitating grassroots initiatives that aim to restore a sovereign limited constitutional Republic based on the rule of law, states' rights and individual rights. We seek to enshrine the original intent of our Founders to foster respect for private property, seek justice, provide opportunity, and to secure individual liberty for ourselves and our posterity.


    A police state is a small price to pay for living in the freest country on earth.

    Baltimore is a war zone on good days. I'd assume the cops aren't going to take many risks to save anything from the looting and burning.

    My answer to that is don't live in a community where there are people that would riot.

    Gov. declares state of emergency; activates National Guard

    BALTIMORE —Gov. Larry Hogan signed an executive order Monday declaring a state of emergency and activating the National Guard.

    Police officers were injured, stores were looted and fires were set Monday evening as vandals ran through Baltimore.

    City police say as many as seven officers have been injured Monday afternoon in northwest Baltimore, where a large group of juveniles converged and began to throw bricks and other items at officers. The officers were injured with broken bones and cuts, and one was unresponsive.

    The CVS store at North and Pennsylvania avenues was set on fire around 6:15 p.m. Police have asked motorists to avoid the area of North Avenue between Monroe Street and Druid Hill Avenue.

    It is mostly poor who riot. People who feel they have no option.

    Cops showing up today in riot gear apparently helped spark this.
    cops are not setting up roadblocks so unsuspecting people are driving into this mess.
    Gov just called out the National Guard
    Meme flyer if spreading promoting 24 hours of violence.
    bunch of liquor stores have been looted and people are getting drunk in the street - I'm sure that will "help" the situation
    rioters moving toward/into good neighborhoods.
    CVS totally destroyed
    one homemade bomb found
    several cars destroyed.

    7 officers down, some have broken bones, one is unconscious.
    crips are not approving of the rioting and even protected a reporter on the ground.
    tear gas and pepper balls use planned

    LOL. Never gonna happen.

    They don't even loot stores right in the middle of the riot area if the owner actually stays to defend it.
