An angry mob in Baltimore attacked a police officer who was trying to arrest a suspect. I have posted video of the incident below.
Bystanders can be seen surrounding the officer — taunting him — kicking him as a woman shouted, “beat him.”
“I am outraged, as any resident of Baltimore should be, by this incident,” Baltimore Commissioner Michael Harrison said in a statement. “We cannot, and will not, allow any member of the public, or one of our officers, to be assaulted. We are now working to identify everybody involved and, when we do, they will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
At least three people have been arrested in the attack.
“This disgusting incident is yet another example of the violence that has become far too common in Baltimore City,” Hogan said in a tweet. “None of our efforts to back up the beleaguered city police force can be successful until we do something to get the violent criminals off the streets.”
Police officers put their lives on the line every day to protect our families. In return they have been bullied, badgered and disrespected. They can’t even go into a Starbucks or a fast food restaurant without being taunted. Darned if you do, darned if you don’t.
They deserve better. And every person in that mob deserves to be in jail.
