The Baltimore PD has no duty to protect, and doesnt

The union that represents the Baltimore Police Department’s rank-and-file officers said the agency has “no existing crime plan” and patrol shifts are so understaffed and officers so overwhelmed by the volume of 911 calls that they are instructed on a nightly basis to respond only to the most violent and pressing ones.

Residents are not getting guns or carry permits, but Bloomberg is getting guns for his peeps at Hopkins. Guns bad, mkay, except my peeps.

Meanwhile the stroller mom limousine liberal parade is deeply focused on Ghost guns. Can we just make them live unarmed in Sandtown-Winchester for a few weeks? not even one Bloomberg armed guard? let THEM dial 911, lol.

Your thread title doesn't match the actual content but I'm sure you knew that because you just like to stir up sh!t.

He’s a 13’er and you know damn well that they’re on the list with ass-kickers, shit kickers and Methodists

This forum more often than not these days makes it easy to see why the pro-gun community activist community in MD only gets smaller and does not accomplish anything. Many members here are more focused on complaining about my copy editing while driving people off the forum if they even remotely disagree in the slightest, meanwhile Annapolis is passing legislation, Hogan is signing bills, pro-gun legislators are getting defeated.

Complain away if it satisfies your internet ego. If you want a warm snuggle buddy, get a dog, I am not your warm blanket who will make you feel good.

I'm actually on your side. We are losing, the community is getting smaller, and maybe you should consider the possibly that since we the pro gun community are not getting it done and getting smaller, we are the shit that needs to be stirred. If you only want people who agree with you 100% all the time on your side, turn in your guns now its game over. It's a letter that does not get written, a donation not made,a vote not cast.



ETA: I think that the point of my OP is pretty obvious. Crime in Baltimore is outrageous, and police response times are ridiculous. Police have no duty to protect, and even if they did, they cant. Residents are their own first responders, but don't have the tools to defend themselves. Maybe you should point that out next time you run into a Baltimore resident or representative in Annapolis and help make self defense legal again in Baltimore.Or complain about my copy editing, your choice.

Baltimore City FOP released a rather stinging press release the other day that the OP is referencing. Including saying the police station is dirtier than the city jail.

Listen to the police scanner for about to 10 minutes and you’ll see the type of police service the city residents get. If you are reporting a crime (robbery, stolen car, etc.) after the fact, prepare to wait several hours before an officer responds. If that happened in the suburbs, people would lose their minds. I’m no big fan of the city but the residents deserve a “normal” police response time. I’m sure many of them feel like if they aren’t in immediate danger then they are on their own. I’m also sure that the criminals know this and act accordingly.

No law enforcement agency has the responsibility to protect or defend anyone their job is to enforce the law..nothing more. That is what makes Maryland''s wear and carry laws so immoral. .you aren't allowed to carry for self defense and the police have zero obligation to defend you..cops carry a firearm for one reason..to defend themselves. .

Nope..I disagree completely. The people who reside in the city of Baltimore are the ones who elected the half wits who create the laws and policies of the city..in essence, they asked for the police department they have and all the disfunction that goes along with it.
