I understand that some folks in Baltimore, Maryland are upset at the cops in their city. I don’t know why these people are in the streets shouting and looting and yelling at the work of our believed police force. So, what actually happened to this guy, Freddie Gray who has caused this problem that currently upsets many folks in the city of Baltimore? First, he looked directly into the eyes of city police, anyone knows that is a major criminal act. Then, he ran away, didn’t this idiot realize that running away from cops is, in effect, a provocation? Of course, if he had run directly at the cops, this would have constituted a direct challenge to their safety and they would have blasted away. Anyway, we now know the cops put Freddie in a van, shackled him but did not place a seat belt to protect his body front the movement of the van.
OK, so the cops decided to play a game, one they have played many times before without causing a civil disturbance. The game is “driving the van in such a way that the prisoner in the back gets thrown around. Heck, this is just like going to a carnival and taking a ride. Apparently during the “rough ride” Freddie was thrown against a bolt and his head suffered some injuries that resulted in his death. I do not understand why so many folks are upset. Are they against rides in a carnival? Oh, some accidents do occur in the carnival, why not in a cop carnival whose goal is simply to give everyone laugh??
