Baltimore Police Chief Apologizes for ‘200 Years’ of Police Brutality at Rap Concert
article appeared in Breitbart on April 21st

Baltimore’s top cop Darryl De Sousa apologized for
“200 years” of police brutality in front of a packed rap concert earlier this

It’s doubtful that
hip-hop fans expected to hear an apology on behalf of the police when they
crammed into the Baltimore Soundstage to hear Erik B. & Rakim. However,
that’s precisely what they got from the city’s police commissioner.
“I want to take about
20 seconds to apologize for all the things that the police have done dating
back 200 years,” Commissioner De Sousa said in a video posted on Instagram. “Two-hundred years
ago, all the way to civil rights. All the way to the ‘80s where crack was
prevalent in the cities and it affected disproportionately African-American
men. All the way to the ‘90s. All the way to the 2000s when we had zero
“I want to take the
time to apologize for what policing did and I promise you we’re going to make a
change in the future,” he added.
According to the Baltimore
Sun, “Some people applauded. But as De Sousa spoke, a person can be heard
on one of the videos yelling profanities. In another, video someone repeatedly
shouts ‘get the police off the stage.'”
It didn’t take long

Gene Ryan, the president
of Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #3 wrote in a statement: “Law enforcement was created to
protect and serve the citizenry despite race and that is what we strive to do,
daily. Are we perfect? No, of course not, but as a profession we work very hard
to care for all of our citizens.”
department has faced increased scrutiny since the 2015 death of Freddie
Gray, a black man who died in police custody. De Sousa was named police
commissioner in January, becoming the third officeholder in five years. His
comments also follow the unrest spurred by the arrest of two black men in a Starbucks coffee shop
another damned fool apologizing for police who have, as a rule, done nothing
wrong. This nonsense began with Black Lives Matter thugs rioting after the
death of Freddie Gray. At the time, Baltimore’s black Mayor, Stephanie
Rawlings-Blake, decided to provide rioters with “space to destroy” and they
took full advantage of her idiotic offer. Add to this a black district attorney
who charged 6 police officers in Gray’s death…all were found innocent…and made threats
to indict and imprison police in the future simply for doing their job and the
residents of Baltimore have paid the price with a massively increased crime
Police are treated like criminals and criminals are treated like martyrs;
what could possibly go wrong?
