With the City of Baltimore setting a new record in 2017 for killings per capita, where 86 percent of the victims and 85 percent of the suspects had prior criminal records, what do you suppose the police commissioner busies himself with?
Baltimore Police Commissioner Darryl De Sousa, accompanied by Mayor Catherine Pugh, took to the stage Wednesday night at a hip-hop concert to apologize for “200 years” of bad police behavior.
“I want to take about 20 seconds to apologize for all the things the police have done dating back 200 years,” the black commissioner said. “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 tolerance.”
“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.
And while there were a few cheers, not all concertgoers approved, as De Sousa was jeered, booed and flipped off, as seen in a video posted on Instagram.
**Warning for language.**
Sorry buddy maybe next time
Former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke had a message for De Sousa about “acts of self-flagellation” when going before “cop hating racialists.”
“And he got BOOED! Fantastic! Hope he learned a valuable lesson. HE CAN GET UP OFF HIS KNEES NOW. Acts of SELF-FLAGELLATION will never appease these cop hating racialists. SUPPORT YOUR COPS. That’ll be appreciated by them. They’ll applaud you for it,” Clarke tweeted.

Gene Ryan, the head of Baltimore’s police union, didn’t take kindly to the “blanket apology” from police commissioner.
“I’m not sure that a blanket apology covering 200 years is appropriate,” he said 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?” Ryan continued. “No, of course not, but as a profession we work very hard to care for all of our citizens.”

But then, as cops in Baltimore found out the hard way with the death of Freddie Gray, city officials — who made a mockery of the case — are quick to throw them under the bus to appease the racial grievance crowd.
