Here are some of your twelve year olds:

And, some of these children have guns, real ones.


Oh, they're just being kids.


Just a side note. Do you see any of the present adults telling them to stop? Hmmmm.

Curious...what would you do if that was your car they were vandalizing? Say stop that. I think that would work. As they look at you...but don't worry they are only kids how could they harm you. Smile



I saw the Reginald Denny video.. I'll be teaching a class at USC in Souh Central L.A. tomorrow. Prospective rioters considering vandalizing my car, if occupied, would be well advised to approach from the side.

Guess they forgot to tell Bill Buckley.

You mean like this 61 year old who was brutally beaten?

"Baltimore County police said officers were called just before 1 p.m. Wednesday to the 500 block of 45th Street in Dundalk, where a 61-year-old man noticed two girls fighting near his truck. He went outside to break up the fight and then was attacked by a large group of juveniles who were watching."



Love the expression from the parent. He is a good boy. One can only respond. Yes I can see that by his actions. Smile


Everyone's favorite River in Egypt...


If this were Jeopardy, I would have to say. What is the Nile? Smile
If I were to agree with you. Then we would both be wrong. As of Apr 5, 2015 10:26 pm I have 880 posts. Used to have over 1,000

In the mid 1800's Baltimore had a notorious reputation for violent riots and street fights, earning the city the nickname "mobtown".

Has anything like this happened before?

According to WTOP it's the first time in MLB 145 year history.

Here is an opposing point of view from someone with intimate knowledge of Baltimore. The comments contain some of the best bits.

Did you take the MLK quote as approval for rioting? It wasn't, but here's the total context:

"Orioles COO John Angelos offers eye-opening perspective on Baltimore protests

By Ted Berg April 27, 2015 USA TODAY 9:40 am ET


After protests in Baltimore over the death of Freddie Gray turned violent on Saturday, Baltimore sports-radio broadcaster Brett Hollander took to Twitter to argue that demonstrations that negatively impact the daily lives of fellow citizens are counter-productive. Orioles COO John Angelos, son of owner Peter Angelos, seized the opportunity to respond with a qualified and brilliant defense of those protesting.

You can read the whole thing in Angelos‚ Twitter replies, but it‚s transcribed here for clarity. It‚s all here because it‚s all so good. Read the whole thing:

Brett, speaking only for myself, I agree with your point that the principle of peaceful, non-violent protest and the observance of the rule of law is of utmost importance in any society. MLK, Gandhi, Mandela and all great opposition leaders throughout history have always preached this precept. Further, it is critical that in any democracy, investigation must be completed and due process must be honored before any government or police members are judged responsible.

That said, my greater source of personal concern, outrage and sympathy beyond this particular case is focused neither upon one night‚s property damage nor upon the acts, but is focused rather upon the past four-decade period during which an American political elite have shipped middle class and working class jobs away from Baltimore and cities and towns around the U.S. to third-world dictatorships like China and others, plunged tens of millions of good, hard-working Americans into economic devastation, and then followed that action around the nation by diminishing every American‚s civil rights protections in order to control an unfairly impoverished population living under an ever-declining standard of living and suffering at the butt end of an ever-more militarized and aggressive surveillance state.

The innocent working families of all backgrounds whose lives and dreams have been cut short by excessive violence, surveillance, and other abuses of the Bill of Rights by government pay the true price, and ultimate price, and one that far exceeds the importances of any kids‚ game played tonight, or ever, at Camden Yards. We need to keep in mind people are suffering and dying around the U.S., and while we are thankful no one was injured at Camden Yards, there is a far bigger picture for poor Americans in Baltimore and everywhere who don‚t have jobs and are losing economic civil and legal rights, and this makes inconvenience at a ballgame irrelevant in light of the needless suffering government is inflicting upon ordinary Americans."

My late dad told me something when I was in high school, after I railed on America and its government. He said, "Leave, then! Go live somewhere else! Try another country! Somewhere in Europe, Africa or Asia. Lemme know how you like it!"

Ask Vlad how he likes The Netherlands. He left America for a better life. He'll tell you in no uncertain terms what an error that was!

In 1990, I was broke, unemployed and staying on a friend's couch here in Maine. I made my way to Florida, and was successful for 20 years. With the grace of God, I did it. Believe me, I am not privileged. I didn't even graduate from high school! My skin color has nothing to do with it.

So, no. I don't pity these people claiming to be "oppressed" and "held down". Just another excuse. Don't like where ya live? MOVE! I did! Always feeling "underprivileged"? Get a freakin' education and step UP! I tell ya, that Mom boppin' her son for being a FOOL, needs to happen more often. But...I hate to say it, why didn't DAD show up? My guess? There ain't one. Therein lies the problem...
