Last week, waiting for the plane back from Utah, I ran into a lady headed back to Southern Pennsylvania via BWI Airport, who had a sorrowful story to tell. Her identity and the company her son worked for will be obscured, as she is in fear for her life.
I will call her Ellen.
Ellen lived with her husband—a Vietnam veteran—and two young adult children, in Baltimore. When he was diagnoses with terminal cancer, his wish was to move out of the city to PA, so they did. The kids, however, had friends and jobs and stayed behind.
Ellen’s husband passed away.
Then, in April 2015, the Baltimore Purge and Riots ignited. The fast food joint her son worked in was looted and his body was later found in the restroom.
Her daughter called the Baltimore City Police to ask how the investigation into her brother’s death was going.
She was told that his death was not being investigated, as the homicide caseload was too heavy.
She called back and complained, demanding an investigation into her brother’s death.
Two weeks later, Ellen’s daughter was found at the base of the building she lived in. She had apparently dived out of a second story window. She, survived, but now has the mental capacity of a toddler.
Ellen believes that the police silenced her daughter.
I don’t think this is likely. The BPD makes no bones about the fact that most murder cases are not solved and that many go virtually un-addressed. I also doubt that she threw herself out a window—young women seeking justice do not do such things.
There are more likely possibilities.
#2: Many Baltimore criminals have relatives or girlfriends who work as uniformed police, detectives or as clerical staff. Many witnesses to gang murders in Baltimore are silenced, as are jurors [mostly through intimidation], based on information provided by police and government insiders, often working as simple clerks, but with access to records. Some uniformed police took part in looting during the riots and may have been involved.
#3: Many employees looted their own places of employment during the riots. There remains the possibility that Ellen’s son was killed and her daughter silenced, by his black coworkers.
#4: Ellen's son may have been killed by looters related to employees of the business. If so, her daughter may have been silenced by thugs informed by these coworkers that his sister was seeking justice and believing that a white person might just find a sympathetic ear with the police department.
In any case, that is another paleface family rubbed out by Harm City Hood Rats.
What do you think:
1. Did the police silence Ellen's daughter?
2. Did thugs, working on police information, silence Ellen's daughter?
3. Was Ellen's daughter silenced by her brother's coworkers?
4. Did looters, informed by her brother's coworkers, silence Ellen's daughter?
5. Did Ellen's daughter take a dive out of a second story window?
6. Was Ellen's daughter thrown from the window for a reason unrelated to her brother's death?
