    Baltimore Cops Carried Toy Guns

    Baltimore Cops Carried Toy Guns to Plant on People They Shot, Trial Reveals

    One officer involved in the city's massive corruption scandal said officers kept the replicas "in case we accidentally hit somebody or got into a shootout, so we could plant them."

    Last week, the beginning of an explosive corruption trial involving eight members of Baltimore's elite Gun Trace Task Force revealed that a handful of Baltimore cops allegedly kept fake guns in their patrol cars to plant on innocent people—a failsafe they could use if they happened to shoot an unarmed suspect, the Baltimore Sun reports.



    It makes one wonder how many other cities have done the same thing.

    Im going go out on a limb here and declare most of those that got the planted toy guns were African American males.

    My apologies to the BPD...if I have jumped to any hasty claims.

    Interesting the story infers that this was racial in nature (linking it to Gray and Rice cases even though the rice case was in Ohio not Maryland)

    I haven't seen this reported by the national mainstream media outlets. This is big news, did I just miss it?

    You noticed the article inferred racism, but neglected to mention the race of the officer.

    As we noticed Debate Drone automatically assumed the officer was WHITE.

    The story implies no such thing. You inferring that only demonstrates the paranoid "leftist media" trope is front and center in your brain at all times.

    In the bronx, these were called "ham sandwiches."


    They were called such because they were kept in plastic sammich bags.

    Yes it does, 1. it links to 2 officers in OHIO that shot an African American teen, and infers they could have plated the "Toy Gun" on Rice (even though people in the park called the police and the firearm was shown on video prior to the police arrival) that narrative only plays to the audience that follow the BLM mindset.

    But the BB gun testimony is particularly disturbing in light of 12-year-old Tamir Rice's death in 2014
