“Police used to sit on every corner, on the top of the block. These days? They’re nowhere.”

“36 people killed in Baltimore so far this month .. highest homicide count for May since 1999”

I don’t hear any outrage so I guess murder is OK as long as it isn’t murder by cops …

“homicides are spiking, arrests have plunged more than 50 percent compared to last year”

“West Baltimore residents worry they’ve been abandoned by the officers”

“”I haven’t seen the police since the riots,” Lee said. “People feel as though they can do things and get away with it. I see people walking with guns almost every single day, because they know the police aren’t pulling them up like they used to.””

“officers have expressed concern they could be arrested for making mistakes.”

“If I get out of my car and make a stop for a reasonable suspicion that leads to probable cause but I make a mistake on it, will I be arrested?”

Well, yea …

“So far this month, arrests are down roughly 56 percent”

“rival gang members are taking advantage of the police reticence to settle scores”

“Veronica Edmonds, a 26-year-old mother of seven in the Gilmor Homes, said she wishes the police would return and focus on violent crime rather than minor drug offenses.”

“”If they focused more on criminals and left the petty stuff alone, the community would have more respect for police officers,” she said.”

Which only by coincidence comes back to my point .. eliminate all laws intended to regulate non violent behavior, get police out of all non violent crimes, traffic violations, etc. .. But you know, everyone wants the government to solve every problem under the sun and with every new law comes *drumroll* law “enforcement” …
