The Sun’s 2017 Marylander of the Year

60 posts in this topic

From the Sun:

"Erricka Bridgeford’s made the Sun's Citizen of the Year for a brilliant concept — a ceasefire weekend. (What if Baltimore could go three days without anyone killing anyone else? What if we could stop the violence for 72 hours just by thinking about it, talking about it, marching about it, praying about it)."

I think her concept was a good one, but as the Sun writes: "Neither achieved their stated goal — both weekends saw killings"

So what exactly was the result? Murders continue at breakneck speeds in the City. Is it really a good idea to celebrate a concept that doesn't actually do anything?

Just my incredible opinion, but how about doing something about the crime rate that will bring results?

Exactly, those are the real people doing something positive.  Plus, they are ready for any war casualties.  As they have been getting them for years!

I love her attitude.  If everyone in Baltimore thought like she did (or even half) it would be a much better/safer city.

DH:

It is not her attitude that is the problem, she seems like a dedicated lady.

But is giving her an award for 'good feelings' really doing anything?

Now, if she were to go into City Hall with an ax and start beating up the furniture until the Politicians got off their butts and did something, NOW THAT would be worth an award!

Like I said on the other thread with Pugh and her candle light vigil .....

With libs, it's style over substance......

Start another hashtag effort and feel good about yourself even if nothing changes ......

It is an extended stay for some of the most seriously injured that need close supervision, for instance, extensive brain damage. I think there are patients there with physical disabilities as well that have trouble with , or cannot communicate.

So we should not reward and support people who are fighting to change the culture that accepts violence as part of Baltimore?

So that would be the person that launches the program that it's OK to cooperate with the police and help combat the "anti-snitching" culture, right? ....

The cop who launches the campaign to combat police “anti-snitching” culture would deserve it even more.

Do you deny the existence of a no-snitching culture among police?

https://www.google.com/amp/www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/dan-rodricks-blog/bs-md-rodricks-0811-20160810-column,amp.html

Investigators tell the story of a detective who considered reporting two fellow officers for brutally beating a suspect in 2011. When he asked a sergeant what he should do, he got the following warning: "If you're a rat, your career here is done."

No, but that’s a major reason why the community doesn’t trust BPD.

So by your "logic" police not snitching on each other is  responsible for both the murders and the the murders not being solved ......

Got it .....

My logic isn’t either/or. Their culture of not snitching certainly contributes to the current mess. The police have no culpability in your eyes?

That's a totally different discusion and not what you said .......

There are bad cops and cops that protect bad cops ......

That happens everywhere, in every state, county and city in America ......

In 90%+ of the places that it happens the citizens aren't killing themselves at record paces ......
