The Riots in Baltimore, “It’s as If There’s an Anarchy”

Unrest in the world here, from the Front Page Sections, translated…

Entering into a State of Emergency, the Rioters Committed Arsons, Smashed the Cars, Committed Robberies………Fifteen Officers Injured, Five Thousand Militia Men were Stationed

On the 27th, in Baltimore, Maryland, there was a serious riot, several thousand went into mourning for a young African American, Greg, while he’d tried to resist arrest and was shot fatally, by the police, the riot started just a few hours after his funeral, the rioters set the shops on fire, burned the police vehicles, assaulted the police officers, the Governor of Maryland declared it a state of emergency for the state, and a curfew is enforced, and sent out five thousand civilian militants to keep the orders.

Over a hundred of youths got into confrontation with the police on the 27th, there were more who’d taken advantage of the situation, the police were fully equipped as they’d gone to the scene of the riots, and would use pepper sprays from time to time, to threaten the rioting public.  The streets became overflown with broken glasses and trash, the group of rioters gathered in smaller groups, smashed shops, destroyed the patrol vehicles, set the building, and the parked cars by the streets ablaze, there were also those who’d driven to the malls, and took the merchandises without paying, Maryland seemed to have fallen under anarchy.

The New York Times reported, that the African American gangsters from the local areas told them, that as the riots started, the gangsters went to offer assistance to the shops owned by African Americans, to make sure that these shops won’t be attacked.  But, these gangsters had pointed out, which shops were owned by Asians, Middle Easterners, so they can smash the shops, to take out their angers.

The police arrested twenty-seven individuals, and said, that there were fifteen officers who were injured during the process, and, six of them are in critical condition.  On the early morning of the 28th, the militia took over the streets, and, the situation in the city had calmed by a whole lot, and, the city’s employees and volunteers were starting to clean up the streets, but, there were, a lot of the building that fell to arsonists, still smoking.

The Governor, Hogan declared, that there would be a curfew set into effect, from ten o’clock on the 28th, to five o’clock in the morning on the 29th, and it will last a week, and, the underage minors are to follow this curfew indefinitely.

The mayor, Rawlings-Blake said, that the sight of the city being broken had broken her heart.  But, a lot of the residents believed, that the government didn’t act right away, as the riots started happening, causing there to be so much damages.

Gray was arrested on the 12th of April, he was seriously injured, taken to the hospital, on the 19th, he was declared dead, the cause of his death, multiple fractures on his spine.  A lot of the rioters believed, that Gray was tortured to death by the police, and, since the 19th, there are protesters on the streets of Baltimore every single day.

And so, this, is another case of race at war, and, this, is bound to happen, because people finally decided to do something, about the unfair treatment of people of different colored skins, and this, is still just the TIPS of a HUGE iceberg, and, because the citizens felt that there was an injustice that weren’t righted, and so, they’d taken matters into their own hands, after all, the government is NOT doing anything about it.

The Assemblies in Missouri Won’t Dissipate, Seven Members of the Rioters Were Arrested

On the recent shooting of an African American teen by cops in the U.S.A., from the Front Page Sections, translated…

When the curfew for the city of Ferguson, Missouri took place on the early morning of the 17th, there were two hundred rioters who ignored it, and kept gathering in the place where the eighteen-year-old youth, Brown, was shot and murdered brutally by the police.  The police shot the gas bombs into the crowd and threw tear gas toward the crowd too, managed to arrest seven individuals.  At the same district, there was also a murder by guns too.

The governor, Nixon, on the 16th, declared that Ferguson is in a state of emergency on the 16th, and from midnight of the 17th, started enforcing a curfew, which was ended at five in the morn.  Over a hundred of the public who’d gathered, left in peace before the curfew started, and, Ferguson was peaceful, save for the place where the teenager was shot, where the protestors ignored the curfews and still gathered, screaming, “NO CURFEWS!”

Not long thereafter, heavily armed police started shooting gas and tear bombs into the crowd, and slowly moved forward, to stop the crowd from gathering up.

When the police was at a standoff with the protestors, someone was shot in the same area, the police had yet to identify the injured victim, Johnson stressed, that the man injured was NOT shot by the police, and the man who’d shot him is still at large.

The governor, Nixon said, that the curfews had helped maintain order in Ferguson, and, the curfews will be lifted, as the local government sees fitting.

After Brown was shot by a white police officer, Wilson, on the ninth, the racial tension is on the rise locally, and, the residents had multiple times started riots, and there were those who took advantage of the situation.  Johnson pointed out, that there were forty FBI agents who made house calls since the sixteenth, to find the witnesses to the shooting, and a few weeks from now, hopefully, everything will be cleared up.

Once again, the locals saw this as a racial thing, and, maybe it IS a racial thing, after all, NOBODY would EVER mistake a WHITE dude, holding something that’s NOT threatening, and SHOOT him, and this young man was shot, because of his skin color, so, no wonder the local residents are PISSED off about it.
