When a police department declares Martial Law

Five days ago, Det. Sean Suiter, a married father of five and an 18-year veteran with the Baltimore Police, was patrolling the streets of West Baltimore around 5pm last Wednesday when he saw suspicious activity. Suiter approached a man and was shot point blank in the head, in a summary execution. He was rushed to the hospital in critical condition where he later died of his injuries.
In response, Baltimore Police reacted with ‘fire and fury’ turning the neighborhood where Suiter was shot into an “open-air prison”, shutting down city streets and enabling checkpoints for citizens while officers in tactical gear went door to door, according to Baltimore Brew. Residents were prohibited from entering their own neighborhood unless they showed proper identification, these extreme measures have been in place for 4-5 days.

    Let me see if I have this right:
    1) Citizen is approached by armed thug spouting commands.
    2) Citizen defends himself from said thug.
    3) Thug’s gang brothers declare martial law and impose collective punishment upon the neighborhood.

    Why not next time they just round up 10 random people and shoot them in retaliation.

    Here is a drawing of cops doing what cops do.

    1) BPD’s tantrum is going to get them sued for about 50,000 civil rights violations, and spanked into oblivion from on high, in federal court.

    2) Somebody hasn’t shot enough BPD cops yet.

      Hasn’t BPD been phoning it in since the Freddie Gray fiasco? Then they’re surprised someone takes a shot at them?

    This deserves the “Punishing all for the actions of one” title more than the Okinawa post.

    I’m really torn with this one.

    On one hand it’s;
    Din Do’s
    Third world
    You know the easy name calling


    The constitutional implications of this act by the government. Oh wait there is no constitution to follow, it’s gone by executive order all thru homeland security.

    Never mind. Stick with DinDo’s
