Here is some background

Unforunately,  a Baltimore police detective was murdered a day before he was supposed to testify in a corruption probe against other Baltimore City officers.



The police response during the investigation of murder to "lockdown" the neighborhood.

Please remember what is done in places like Baltimore, Chicago and Flint will eventually be implemented in all US cities.  See the opiod epdemic as a case study.

The link below describes the steps one must take to acquiring a gun in Washington DC.  It is a deliberately expensive, cumbersome and time consuming to ensure that people do not have the tools necessary to protect their neighborhoods.

I am posting this to remind everyone that this is what gun control will ultimately lead to in the United States when the NWO decides to crash the economy and as the war to control the narcotics trade rages on.

D.C.'s Aggressive Confiscation Of "Illegal" Guns Leaves Residents Feeling Targeted

Few police departments are better at confiscating illegal guns than Washington, D.C.'s Metropolitan Police Department. Every day, teams of officers, often driving unmarked cars, scour the streets looking for people who might be carrying a firearm.

These tactics have helped D.C. police seize thousands of illegal weapons. The aggressive search for guns has come with a cost, however — residents in heavily patrolled neighborhoods say they feel targeted.

Additionally, many suspects charged with gun possession ultimately walk free, according to an analysis of court documents by WAMU and the Investigative Reporting Workshop at American University, leading to more questions about the usefulness of the tactic.

"Everybody looks at the arrests; everybody you know focuses on all of that," Trainum says. "Look at the numbers behind it: How many cases get dismissed? How many cases end up in a conviction?"

Police don't track that for illegal gun cases. And neither do prosecutors.


Stop and frisk is a good tool, but we've taken it and abused it over the years.

Jim Trainum, former homicide detective, D.C. Metropolitan Police Department
An investigation by WAMU and the Investigative Reporting Workshop analyzed nearly 500 affidavits from 2010-2015 in cases where MPD officers had arrested suspects for illegal gun possession. Nearly 4 in 10 of these cases ended up getting dismissed in court.

Jim Trainum wasn't surprised by this statistic. "Stop and frisk is a good tool, but we've taken it and abused it over the years," Trainum says. "So that is just another tool that we manipulate in order to get the stats, to get the guns off the street."

Trainum says that too often, police stop and frisk residents without legal justification. In order to legally stop and temporarily detain someone, police must have "reasonable suspicion" the person has engaged in criminal activity or is about to.[\quote]
