Mistrial in Baltimore

Will there be more riots?

* * *

I suspect that the jury split strictly along racial lines. I wonder if any jurors will talk to the media and tell the inside story?

So far, I didn’t see anything on CNN that looked remotely like a riot. Maybe it takes time for the mobs to gather.

  1. I doubt there will be riots for a mistrial, and I suspect the jury returned that verdict to avoid them.

    It’ll be interesting to see if the prosecutor offers a generous plea to secure Porter’s testimony, or whether they attempt to delay all they other trials while they retry him.

  2. NAACP spokeswoman was just on TV, said they wanted a conviction.

    The police officer is black. So why does NAACP support the criminal? Because they’re a pro-criminal organization.

    They first check race and support a black against a non-black. If both are black, choose the one that’s the worse citizen.

    What a disgusting organization. KKK is considered so bad, they don’t favor white criminals over law abiding citizens. The NAACP makes me sick.

  3. I hope there are riots. It would help Trump.

    • I think it would fortify enthusiasm among his supporters. I think the terrorist attacks broadened his support, or at least convinced wish-washy Republicans to get in line.

  4. I think a mistrial leaves the potential rioters confused as to what exactly happened. If it had been an acquittal, I think it would be a different story.

    • Just what I was thinking.

      “Mistrial, what’s that? Did we win or did we lose?”

      “Um, well, it’s sorta like a jump-ball.”

  5. >>I suspect that the jury split strictly along racial lines. I wonder if any jurors will talk to the media and tell the inside story?

    How do you think they split? The defendant, William Porter, is black. Do you think the three white women voted to convict and the blacks voted to acquit, or the contrary?

    I can see black men letting Porter go. Though black men don’t like cops they don’t like taking s**t from other, criminal black men either.

    • Good point.

  6. “Will there be more riots?”

    No. White radicals and black supremacists turn riots on and off like a faucet. But they can sense something is a little different right now. The national mood has changed. Riots would hurt them politically. So they’ll keep their dogs chained up for the moment.

    • A perfect time to purchase more ammunition.

  7. TNB regardless of the verdict.

      • Typical negro behavior or the other n-word if you’re inclined.

  8. It’s probably too cold for riots. Well timed!

    • Homicides and riots are more common during the summer. Something about the hot weather makes people temperamental.
