If only they realize how important it is to keep these protests peaceful.

A day of mostly peaceful rallies to protest the death of Freddie Gray turned confrontational as dark fell over Baltimore on Saturday with demonstrators smashing the windows on police cars, blocking traffic near the Inner Harbor and shouting, “Killers!” at officers dressed in riot gear.

More than 100 officers — wearing helmets, gloves and vests and carrying batons — formed a wall along several blocks of Pratt Street, and began to make arrests. State police in full tactical gear were deployed to the city to respond to a crowd that was becoming unruly.

Protesters shouted: “Killers!” and “You can’t get away with this!” and “Hands up don’t shoot!” Some threw rocks, water bottles, even hot dog buns and condiments at police mounted on horses, smashed windows at local businesses and looted at least one convenience store.

Here’s what’s known about the Freddie Gray case.

      Did they Second Amendment a police officer? A cop did 2A an unarmed black man though.

      • Red Eye Robot April 26th, 2015 at 6:04 pm

        And clearly the remedy for that is smashing windows.

          when white people destroy personal property, set cars on fire, turn cars over, etc., etc., they have absolutely no cause for it. they aren’t upset at injustice, yet you don’t comment on that. and faux spews will call it kids being kids.

            Yeah, I don’t see him posting film of 49ers fans rioting, or Broncos fans, Giants fans, University of Kentucky basketball fans rioting, Red Sox fans rioting (three separate times,) WVU Mountaineers fans rioting, Pedophile Jerry Sandusky fans rioting, University of Tennessee fans rioting because their coach took another job, surfing fans rioting, haters of Disco rioting, Pumpkin Festival fans rioting… But if they are a minority, the Pink-Eye Machine is right there to point fingers. I don’t remember, does he actually claim he ISN’T a bigot?

            zing and boom and zing some more. and LOL.

          • Red Eye Robot April 27th, 2015 at 10:18 pm

            What difference does it make what color they are? This is a political movement

          • whatthe46 April 27th, 2015 at 10:21 pm

            as usual, racists and bigots like yourself, just totally dismiss their rants and destruction as meaningless huh? no surprise there.

        • bpollen April 26th, 2015 at 6:25 pm

          Now you are just deliberately being stupid. Not that it’s unfamiliar territory for you.

          • Red Eye Robot April 27th, 2015 at 10:17 pm

            They weren’t smashing windows?

          • bpollen April 28th, 2015 at 3:51 am

            Compound stupidity! And you even throw in blatant bigotry! Keep this up and you are going to fling yourself back into the past – hopefully.

          Mike Vanderboegh, three percenter and Tea Party leader, “Smash the windows! Smash the windows!”

          Thanks for playing.

      Here ya’ go, Hot Shot:

      • Red Eye Robot April 26th, 2015 at 5:54 pm

        So even the press was rioting? For Justice right?

        • Anomaly 100 April 26th, 2015 at 6:35 pm

          No, he was there to report the events. Can you Google? It’s a simple process.

    • bpollen April 26th, 2015 at 6:22 pm

      Again, you totally misunderstand. What you showed is criminal behavior by some. You are using that criminal behavior by a limited number of criminals (who, I think, might just have good reason to be pissed at the cops) as the brush to paint everybody NOT participating in criminal acts. Or, to use an analogy that is right up your alley, it would be like painting ALL ammosexuals with the brush of Shawna Forde. Killing children for FREEDUMB!

    probably instigated by WHITE RACIST TERRORIST from Nevada.

    best way to keep minor, small incidents like this from happening:

    capture the leader of the Nevada WHITE RACIST TERRORIST, render his fat Kow farming butt to DPRK for intense local enhanced interrogation and find out who the WHITE RACIST instigators are.

    • John Tarter April 26th, 2015 at 11:35 pm

      No, it’s just young black men who have no respect for anyone else. I bet they all have long rap sheets.

  4. John Tarter April 26th, 2015 at 11:33 pm

    Of course this was going to happen. They really don’t care a rats ass about the man who got killed, now it’s a perfect excuse to destroy and steal. But really, why aren’t these young men working? Oh that’s right, black unemployment is at an all time high under the first black president. So the truth is, Mr. Obama has failed in his stated goal of making things better for people in this country. So the options are: 1. Government handouts. 2. Rioting.

      Of course, as a white supremacist you will deny the role that slavery, segregation, and Institutional racism have in this situation.

      All of this is actually YOUR fault, but of course you will deny your responsibility. Typical right-wing racist.
