That is a horrible reason to vote for Hillary , and I'm a gay woman.

Hillary is a liar and one of the most prolific criminals in DC

do more research before voting for her

And it wasn't Hillary doing that. It was Freedomworks. A conservative group, and Neera Tanden a democrat that started this, Hillary doesn't have anything to do w it.

Please educate yourself on these candidates before parroting

These parents have been listening to guys like Allen West and Ben Carson too much.



That must be a really really big problem.

OMG. Blackmail?????????

We all need to sick PI's on those evil murderous satanic freaks running the world and our elected minion employees that are working for darth vader crew not us.

But not blackmail dear one, EXPOSE AND DESTROY THEM. Make sure corrupt evil creeps do not have a pot to (fill in the blank, rhymes with hiss) in, nor job, pension or even a home, for we'd be going for massive damages.

Make it really not worth their while to sell out their employers, the citizens.

That has always been our responsibility. Or we are enabling Murders and Destruction and are partners in crime with them.

I've waited all my life, for people to step up to the plate.

When life hands something like this to you, and the world and the behavior of authority figures doesnt make sense, take the authority to expose and topple it.

What gets me more is the OP made the thread , then just left, no reponse to any of the posters.

That leads me to believe it was intentional, and he knew what he was doing.

This was a bait thread and once again makes him no better then FOX or MSNBC



I can't say if this is true for the OP, it may not be, but I have made many threads and some were ones where I just wanted to present the information and say what I had to say about it. I had gave my opinion already.

The replies I had gotten were distractions from what I presented so I simply let the thread play out and go its course. Being the OP doesn't mean you have to reply to everyone, although sometimes it can be fun to do so.

Just saying.

It saddens me to watch teenagers throw their lives away because at that age we don't always make good decisions.

In this case I think its a bit excessive as long as he didn't hurt anyone. I think he and his parents should be punished but a life sentence is ridiculous.

Perhaps the best thing to do in this case is make an example out of him, but in the exact opposite way they are trying todo, which will accomplish nothing.

Perhaps give him community service and a one time get out of jail free cardm, any future violations its life again. Then they should take him and work with him to try to bring the community and officers back together. Sit him down with officers, black leaders , white leaders , and his parents. Then discuss the issues and his reasoning for doing this , how it happened, with no Political Correctness BS than make it a required viewing for students .

something no one has said, or have only hinted at. he is a repaet offender, or should i say he has a record of violence and theft, and was on probation.

from the guardian article.


The charges against Bullock are his first as an adult, according to his parents, who said he had been convicted of several minor offences as a juvenile over things like “theft and fighting.” They said Bullock earned roughly $15,600 a year working in sanitation for the city under a program for people in juvenile probation.
Baltimore rioter turned himself in – but family can't afford $500,000 bail


so just let someone who is a repeat offender / repeat criminal, who was given a job so he could learn how to work and support himself. didn't think it was wrong to go out rioting, and breaking other peoples stuff. he was ungrateful that he wasn't in put prison, so we should fell sorry for him now. please give me a break.

My guess is that bail for all of the persons arrested thus far are set high so that they are able to detain them longer, at least until after everyone has settled down some. Just because a crime, be it a misdemeanor or felony has a sentence attached to it doesn't mean that's what the sentence will be. Often the minimum is applied and probation authorized as it is really all about the money generated in the form of fines.

I applaud this young man and his family for coming forward, however this does not excuse his actions, no matter how much we can justify them and even that is on shaky ground at the moment. Everyone is entitled to a fair day in court which includes these officers. Yes I realize that our courts are not always fair and this is what maybe we should concentrate on overhauling and begin to hold everyone accountable.

This young man will have another day in court and when the dust settles after the weekend I see the figure for his bail being lowered and his life will return and perhaps be even better from the opportunities he will find as a result of this incident in his life.

I suppose riotious behaviour is arguing with a cop? Perhaps its failure of instant compliance to a police order.

And the vicious cycle of poverty, jail time and more poverty never ends then people ask why people in Baltimore turned violent to begin with.



You see it exactly as it is

Kudos

And the beat goes on.


Someone is going to have to answer for the riots and it looks like the blame, or at least part of it is being placed squarely upon this boys shoulders.

A slap on the wrist with some community service combined with parental punishment should suffice. Let him be made to clean up some of the mess and help restore a semblance of normality to the local businesses and other amenities affected.

No point in paying tax payers money to keep the young Man incarcerated for simply being an idiot and following the rest of the crowd.

sweet click bait headline by the source!

looked at all this dude's charges, and all of them except the rioting charge carry sentences of UP TO 3 years or less. some are UP TO 60-90 days. the punishment for rioting is UP TO life imprisonment. not guaranteed. there's a whole "offender matrix" that Maryland uses when considering punishment of a crime to determine the guidelines for punishment. which is not a requirement, it's a guideline. and that's not getting in to whether the sentences can be concurrent or consecutive, probation, and so on and so forth. but the article does a really good job of making it sound incredibly simple and highly likely that this dude is going to prison for life.

I do love how they paint it as he did society a favor by turning himself in and how that is apparently "a good deed." Oh, yea. You turned yourself in, that totally makes everything cool man

so never mind that he was on probation for crimes that were very similar to this,
fighting and theft which didn't stop him and he showed no reluctance to go out and destroy others peoples property, and incite riots by egging people on to throw rocks, bottles at police.

just give him the same type of punishment, as what he was already on and let that suffice.

it's plain to see that that type of punishment is ineffective with this young man. it will not deter him from breaking the law a third time.

no the only thing that will slow the lack of concern this young man's has for his actions and the people around him, would be a lengthy incarceration at one of the most under funded over staffed graybar hotel which unfortunately will be at the tax payers expense.

no not this time a slap on the wrist will not suffice.

So lets lock him away for a few decades, while educating him in the art of real crime. Then turn him lose approaching 40 with no real skills other than what he learned inside and a huge chip on his shoulder regarding society?

At least im suggesting that he contributes to cleaning up the mess by way of doing community service pertaining to the crimes committed during the riots. I just dont think life imprisonment fits the crime i'm afraid.

The kid has a record and he is not facing life.

If you are not willing to do the time do not do the crime.

Life imprisonment doesn't fit the crime, no.

Neither does probation, either. He's already giving society the finger, and has done so more than once, so why would lightly slapping him on both wrists change that?

Agreed, the punishment should fit the crime.

What would you suggest as an appropriate punishment or sentence?

"So why would lightly slapping him on both wrists change that?"

Im thinking bridges need to start being built somewhere with regards to what transpired.

He's not getting life. He's going to end up pleading out of half the charges. At most he will get maybe 2 years due mainly to being on probation still. I doubt he even gets that though Considering tthey are all misdemeanors.

Armed robbery in Michigan typically will land you 2 to 10. IMO, this isnt much of a difference.

Im using that as a reference point based on my experience working with youth here.

damn right, and he was already EDUCATED IN THE ART OF REAL CRIME, he was a THIEF, AND A STREET FIGHTER, on PROBATION working in a JOB THAT WAS PROVIDE THROUGH THE DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS, one which he was being payed for, where he could learn part of the responsibilities of being of a adult.

i'm all for second chances, but this punk/ thug showed his lack of gratitude for the second chance given him and went out and did something on a greater scale than he did the first time.

LOCK HIS ASS UP.

Well considering he was by no means the only teen participating, if we are going to lock him up, then we must also lock up the rest. Who im sure a significant percentage of also share a similar colorful history and/or record.
