Baltimore mayor has showed no leadership & riots have continued

To The Daily Sun,

In December of 1965 the power went out in New York City. Mayhem broke out. Store windows were broken and looting commenced. A photo-journalist captured what should have been front page news and child services should have been notified. A woman with two small children following behind her were walking down the street, when the woman found what appeared to be a concrete block. She hefted it up and found a store window and threw the block through the window, smashing it. She reached through the hole and grabbed a television set and ran down the side walk with the two small children trailing behind her. Not a very good lesson to teach ones children. Not practical and showed no respect to others property.

In the summer of 1969 I walked through a mob of rioters who exhibited no signs of civil behavior.
It was as if someone had opened the doors to the insane asylums. The authorities showed more tolerance to the mob than than they did to the victimized. The 1960's were a decade of civil unrest. Any excuse for looting.

Today we have seen an Attorney General resign. Eric Holder who took over a building at Columbia University in the late 70's was never prosecuted. Had charges been pressed he might not have been able to promote the division we have seen the last year. Since affirmative action had taken root back then, tolerance had become a privilege towards criminal behavior. The Republican senators who approved the recent nomination for Eric Holder's replacement have given us the same irrational concept. Loretta Lynch has testified that she will continue Eric Holder's legacy. Downright scary. More "Fast and Furious", IRS scandals, missing e-mails. More cover ups like Benghazi, voter fraud and intimidation and Illegal immigration. More corruption.

Detroit was once a thriving metropolis. Not today. Chicago, the communist capital within the United States has become a breeding grounds for anarchy and engineering America's decline. Ferguson, where so many had traveled from other areas to riot may never recover.
The Baltimore mayor has showed no signs of leadership and the riots have continued. Baltimore may be in their decline. One mother is shown smacking her son side the head and chasing him home as he prepared to join the rioters. I commend this mother for being a mother. When any people are given their right to govern themselves and abuse that right then civilization dies. We are witnessing the decline of the west by allowing the subcultures and subversives to destroy the successes of our country.
Cannot help but wonder if George Soros's Open Society may be distributing money for the Baltimore riots. Someone is manipulating and funding the thugs. Some within our society have shown they are easy targets for the anarchist and facilitators who hide in the shadows.
