Baltimore Mayor Calls On DOJ To Probe The Police Department She’s In Charge Of

I never got around to this one Wednesday, but it is hilarious

Baltimore mayor asks DOJ for civil rights probe into city police department

Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake requested Wednesday that the Department of Justice order a “pattern or practice” civil rights investigation into the city’s police department, similar to the probe conducted in Ferguson, Missouri after the shooting death of Michael Brown last summer.

The mayor said such a probe was necessary to achieve the kind of “sustainable and significant reform” of the department that she and the citizens of Baltimore want to see.

“The DOJ has employed these investigations in communities across our nation to reform serious patterns and practices of force, biased policing and other unconstitutional practices by law enforcement,” she told reporters at her weekly press conference. “I’m asking the Department of Justice to investigate if our police department has engaged in a pattern or practice of stops, searches or arrests that violate the fourth amendment.”

Really?

Last time I checked, she’s been mayor of Baltimore since 2/4/2010.

Let’s also remember that the last Republican who served as Baltimore mayor, Theodore R. McKeldin, left office in 1967. All Democrats since. And Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake has a Black police captain, Black police commissioner, and the force is roughly 43% Black. Will she take responsibility?

    Teach,

    Why don’t you tweet your theories on how the Negro is inferior? All those Negro towns that doing so poorly. And how those white towns like Portland are doing so great. How the Negroes in Baltimore are in charge of everything and have messed it up because they’re Black.

    No you only tweet things that get you called stupid, but not racist. Why don’t you tweet your racist thoughts that you type in your blog?

    No guts, no glory. But then, we know you have no guts.

    Here’s a tweet you can twitter (or what ever it is you tweeters do):

    Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake has a Black police captain, Black police commissioner, and the force is roughly 43% Black.

    Not enough cajones to tell the twitterverse your real thoughts?

    Please post the twitter responses that call you out for being so dumb.

    But if the city has been run by Democrats for the last 50 years or so who does on blame? I know- because we love diversity we’ll include white liberals in the blame game. So we have whites and blacks and everything is P.C. I feel much better now…..

    Blame ? well how about blaming the conservatives for never becoming teachers ? That makes about as much sense as blaming it on the skin color

    While the mayor is at it, how about having an external independent investigation into why her schools are performing so poorly while costing the taxpayers over $17K per pupil per year.

    minority run cities are failures ….. nice to see a lib state the truth ….. the failure is the policy, the failure is the lack of values, the failure is libs making excuses ..,,,, “the po black folks need us smart white people to lead them out of the degradation we imposed on them”

    He’s saying she can’t blame the meltdown of her own city on racism, the #1 go-to excuse for Democrat failures. Why do you Leftists always need everything explained to you in small words and v-e-r-y s-l-o-w-l-y?
