    Who Didn't See this Coming to Baltimore?

    Turns out after the police were vilified following the Freddy Gray death, the police stopped interacting with people on the street, and the murder rate skyrocketed.

    Is that idiot mayor still in office?

    The one that told the cops to let the thugs sack the city?

    Yeah, with "leadership" like that...

    Very similar statistics in Chicago.

    Often referred to as the "Ferguson effect"......

    Police officials acknowledge the change. "In all candor, officers are not as aggressive as they once were, pre-2015. Itís just that fact," says acting Police Commissioner Gary Tuggle, who took command of Baltimore's police force in May.

    Tuggle blames a shortage of patrol officers and the fallout from a blistering 2016 Justice Department investigation that found the city's police regularly violated residents' constitutional rights and prompted new limits on how officers there carry out what had once been routine parts of their job. At the same time, he says, police have focused more of their energy on gun crime and less on smaller infractions.

    "We donít want officers going out, grabbing people out of corners, beating them up and putting them in jail," Tuggle says. "We want officers engaging folks at every level. And if somebody needs to be arrested, arrest them. But we also want officers to be smart about how they do that."

    The change has left a perception among some police officers that people in the city are free to do as they please. And among criminals, says Mahogany Gaines, whose brother, Dontais, was found shot to death inside his apartment in October.

    Maybe some of the officers should change their "perception"??

    HayJenn,

    Exactly, police decided that they weren't going to police, so now instead of the police maybe violating criminals rights by roughing them up a bit, criminals are now violating people rights by shooting and killing them.

    You do know the difference between a city and the Country, right?
