The Baltimore Nine: Where's Jesse And Al?

No, this is not a post about the Baltimore Orioles. From the Examiner comes this story of a woman that was badly beaten on Baltimore bus.

As Sarah Kreager, 26, tried to sit down on a Baltimore City bus Tuesday, police say, a middle-schooler told her she couldn’t. When she attempted to take another seat, a middle-schooler wouldn’t let her. Finally, according to police, Kreager just sat down.

She was “immediately attacked” by nine students — three females and six males — from Robert Poole Middle School. They punched and kicked her at 2:59 p.m. at the intersection of 33rd Street and Chestnut Avenue, according to Maryland Transit Administration police.


Didn't these little thugs get the word? Didn't they hear that the noose hung at the fire station was hung there by a black man?

So, where's Mayor Dixon? Where's her tersely worded statement?

Where's Jesse and Al?

Answer: They usually wait for the convictions, before they organize marches to support the thugs that commit these kinds of things.

So far, this is the punishment meted out towards these kids:

All nine suspects, ages 14 and 15, were arrested and charged with aggravated assault.

Their bus tickets — provided by the school — have been revoked, Greene said.

We'll see what happens next, but we'll not hold our breath.

We would be guaranteed a big march, then. Turnout for that march would have been huge, being in an urban area and all.

Hahaha. Classic. Nothing from the Mayor, who was so wordy last time she had something to say on race relations? Classic.

No doubt about that!
