This is America

Hopefully just a very small part of it. Shame on us. I try not and make the Nazi comparison lightly, but people, this is American fascism. You know you’re a fascist when: You wrap yourself in an American flag to call another group of Americans terrorists, killers, and pure evil. You wish another group of Americans an early death for…

South Philly

I had a good time in Philadelphia. It struck me a bit like a big version Baltimore. And I like Baltimore. And I like big. So there you have it.

Of course it’s probably not a big deal for him. For…

14-year-old girl killer

She must have “hated Mexicans,” too. Two men were sitting on their stoop when, Peter Hermann writes: When a young girl armed with a silver handgun approached and announced a robbery. “Because of the age of the suspect the victims began to laugh at which time the suspect fired one shot grazing the victim Wilmer Bonilla’s head and striking Jose…

Killing Mexicans

Seems to be the latest sport in East Baltimore. Martin Reyes, who wasn’t Mexican, is the fifth Hispanic shooting or homicide victim in the area in less than two month. All the victims are Honduran. And moved into a neighborhood that desperatelyneeds an influx of hard-working non-criminals. The killer (is there where I’m supposed to add, “alleged”?), African-American paroled drug…
