“Nobody Kill Anybody” Weekend Ends Early

Sad, but all too predictable.

(CNN)Going into the weekend, Baltimore activist Erricka Bridgeford had a simple hope and request: Nobody kill anybody for 72 hours.

It was too much to ask for in a city on pace to record its highest annual homicide toll, a place still reeling from the racially-charged riots that followed the 2015 death of Freddie Gray at the hands of police.
A 24-year-old man was fatally shot Saturday afternoon, some 40 hours into the grassroots ceasefire.

    Lives don’t matter to BLM when it comes to out of control crime.

    If they did, BLM would focus its efforts on getting rampant thugs on street rather than treating nearly all law enforcement as criminals.

    Miracles may be the way things ought to be, but unfortunately, they’re not.

    Bonus points to the person who gets the reference.
