Screen Shot 2015-04-28 at 5.24.56 PMThe first thing we need to do is get everything out on the table where it belongs.

America is a country that has lost its way. Morally and ethically we’re further off the rails than the founders would have ever dreamed possible. The constitution is an afterthought for most legislators.

And a growing number of police act well outside of the authority they’ve been given.

This isn’t uniformly true, but under Obama, America has become a police state. And if their power is left unchecked, things could get out of hand (as they already have in some places).

With that being said let’s turn out attention to the riots in Baltimore.

As teenage thugs traipse the streets of Maryland’s largest city we can safely say we’re not seeing a sensible reaction to an injustice.

We are seeing people acting out in total frustration to the failure of Democrat initiatives to act as savior to the people.

Years of Democrat leadership has left Baltimore downtrodden and in disrepair.

The reason rioters are out on the streets right now is indicative of just how poorly they’ve done their jobs at helping the populace.

This is emblematic of what happens when the government pretends they can take care of people better than their own families can.

But before we digress let’s go back to the subject of this story: Freddie Gray.

Gray arrived at the hospital in pretty bad shape. Protesters allege Gray was the victim of excessive force and died from his injuries.

Could be.

But Freddie Gray was no angel.

In fact, once you look at his arrest record you’ll see he was nothing short of a career criminal.

When his arrest record was pulled from the Maryland Department of Justice it looked something like this.

• March 20, 2015: Possession of a Controlled Dangerous Substance

• March 13, 2015: Malicious destruction of property, second-degree assault

• January 20, 2015: Fourth-degree burglary, trespassing

• January 14, 2015: Possession of a controlled dangerous substance, possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute

• December 31, 2014: Possession of narcotics with intent to distribute

• December 14, 2014: Possession of a controlled dangerous substance

• August 31, 2014: Illegal gambling, trespassing

• January 25, 2014: Possession of marijuana

• September 28, 2013: Distribution of narcotics, unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous substance, second-degree assault, second-degree escape

• April 13, 2012: Possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute, unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous substance, violation of probation

• July 16, 2008: Possession of a controlled dangerous substance, possession with intent to distribute

• March 28, 2008: Unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous substance

• March 14, 2008: Possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to manufacture and distribute

• February 11, 2008: Unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous substance, possession of a controlled dangerous substance

• August 29, 2007: Possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute, violation of probation

• August 28, 2007: Possession of marijuana

• August 23, 2007: False statement to a peace officer, unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous substance

• July 16, 2007: Possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute, unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous substance (2 counts)

That’s a long rap sheet.

Make no mistake, police knew who Freddie Gray was. They’d had more than a few encounters with the troubled man.

And the rioters who are out destroying their city in protest have certainly overlooked these inconvenient truths.

Perhaps this is why Obama has yet to talk about Gray. (He has said a few things and placed blame on police tactics.)

The point is, these protests are not being conducted because people want justice.

These people are acting out frustrations with Democrat initiatives, which have wounded the black communities and left them worse off than they could have imagined.

Weirdly enough, they don’t realize this yet.
