That guys rap sheet is a different issue. Even though the guy was clearly a career criminal, IF he was hurt by police while in custody, the police need to answer for it. Even though that unfortunate incident is what triggered the thugs in the street, it is now not the issue being discussed in this thread. This thread is about the current administrations known strategy which was created by Emanuel or Axelrod, I don't remember which.

It was learned early on that their intentional strategy was to never let a crisis go to waste. Obama has followed that strategy ever since. The question asked in this thread is; how will obama take advantage of this particular crisis? He will be at a microphone within hours and I fully expect that he will not exhibit leadership, but will turn it to his political advantage in some way.

The direction of the Baltimore PD last night is your typical liberal government at work. Rather than start arresting immediately, they backed up and let it get out of hand. Even the silly Barney Fife knew what had to be done in such a case, "nip it in the bud." Problem is this requires discipline and taking firm charge. Something liberals don't believe in. They think that you must be kind and gentle to criminals. The criminals I'm talking about are the thugs rioting.

Are you actually giving obama and his administration credit for the concept of captalizing on a crisis for political reasons??

Do you have no concept of human history or what? Never hear of the phrase "waving a bloody shirt"? Been going on since the dawn of time.

Lets not work people up against unfair taxation so they stage a tea party and revolution or anything. I know what George Washington Bible would have done. Stuck his head in the sand and said the boston massacre was just an example of good police work.

Sometimes reacting to a problem in order to change things is a good thing. Go right ahead and wish for a police state all you want. I would prefer not to have one.

Laying the groundwork for cause for a national police farce. Obviously, local police aren't capable of doing their jobs without help from progressives.

But when he does things you always complain he is overreaching. He's just taking charge....exhibiting leadership.

When has he EVER done ANYTHING without the purpose of personal political gain? Its all about him. The country can and is going to hell under his watch, but he continues to strive for political gain.

Self reflection time larry, when has he done anything that you already hadnt decided was the wrong thing?

If he acts, he should have waited. If he waits, he should have acted.

Hey, obviously it was this guys fault, or the cops wouldnt have done what they did.
The police are your friends, their job is to serve and protect you. Even if they have to kill you to do it.
