The last straw for certain things came with a Baltimore Sun front page banner headline:
Skepticism, despair as killings continue
Residents question city response; Four day death toll stands at 12.
What was the last straw?
In short, it’s time for me to stop concerning myself with racism and race.
This rose from the 2015 Freddie Gray riots.
I don’t like this. But I am best to “accept the things I cannot change.”
I have supported both Commissioner Batts and the mayor in everything they’ve done so far. An possible exception: in hindsight, it may have been unwise to shut down the subway Monday afternoon, April 26, as this rendered high school students at Mondawmin Mall unable to leave the area.
I have not studied the various calls for Batts’ resignation, but note that they come from many different directions. That doesn’t, in itself, give any of them merit.
The F.O.P. does not currently appear to me to be a friend of the people.
