SRB to Obama: Bmore Won't Enforce Your Immigration Laws

Baltimore joins with DC in refusing to enforce federal immigration laws locally. The Obama administration seemingly can't win -- it's deported more undocumented immigrants than any other and is trying to pilot a program here to prioritize violent criminals and leave otherwise law-abiding residents alone, yet both the rat wangers and the liberals are enraged, and the Mayor's order takes it a step beyond keeping ICE out of Central Booking: "No City department, agency, officer or employee shall discriminate against any resident of Baltimore City based on confirmed or suspected race, ethnicity, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, immigration status, and/or inability to speak English."

Parrish jury deliberating

A jury is deliberating the guilt of 15-year-old Jason Mattison's (alleged) killer Dante Parrish. Mattison, who wanted to be a medic, was kicked out of his mom and grandma's house because they thought he was gay. He was slashed to death at his great-aunt's house with a box cutter while she and her addict friends nodded off downstairs. Parrish admitted to police that he beat and gagged Mattison. I wonder if his mom, grandma or aunts have been in the courtroom...?

The Board of Estimates approved a $70k settlement to a man and his toddler son who were roughed up." TDR and The Sun's Luke Broadwater reports that at issue were the events of Aug. 28, 2009 when two Baltimore police officers arrested Tyrode Gibbs Sr., who was sitting on the front steps of a vacant property along with his 2-year-old son, Tyrode Gibbs Jr. The vacant property had a "No Trespassing" sign posted, and the officers instructed Gibbs and his son to leave, but he said he was "seeking shelter from the rain," the documents say. ... The lawsuit alleged the officers beat Gibbs to the ground, kicking and stomping him while he was still holding his son in his arms. During the altercation, one of the officers struck the 2-year-old and sprayed mace on the elder Gibbs, the lawsuit alleged."
