The local CBS Affiliate in Baltimore reports that
From the beginning, the investigation into what killed Freddie Gray has centered on what happened inside the police transport van.We knew there was another prisoner inside the van and tonight we hear from him.
“I am Donta Allen. I am the one who was in the van with Freddie Gray,” Allen said.
The one who the police commissioner calls the second prisoner in the van.
“The second prisoner who was picked up said that he didn’t see any harm done to Freddie at all,” Commissioner Anthony Batts said. “What he has said us that he heard Freddie thrashing about.”
But Allen wants to set something straight.
“All I did was go straight to the station, but I heard a little banging like he was banging his head,” he said.
He tells WJZ he’s angry about an internal police report published in The Washington Post.
“And they trying to make it seem like I told them that, I made it like Freddie Gray did that to hisself (sic),” Allen said. “Why the [expletive] would he do that to hisself (sic)?”
Allen was in the van because he allegedly stole a cigarette from a store on North Avenue.
He was never charged. Instead he was brought straight to the station.
“I talked to homicide. I told homicide the same story.” Allen said.
A story he says is being distorted and now he fear being killed.
“I had two options today right, either come and talk to y’all and get my credibility straight with ya’ll and not get killed by these [expletive] or not tell a true story,” Allen added. “The only reason I’m doing this is because they put my name in a bad state.”
His statements are included in a police report that was today turned over to the city state’s attorney Marilyn Mosby.
So, boys and girls, once again, the fires of Racial Division in our country have had kerosene poured onto them by “pyromaniacs determined to engulf our nation via means of a false narrative.
Donta has every right to be afraid.
The Professional Race-Baiters have too much invested to allow Donte to spoil their plans.
For example, here is a classy, genteel individual just full of “hope and change”…or something…
This Week on the New Black Panther Party’s “Black Power Radio,” national chairman Hashim Nzinga said since America has “declared war on us,” evidenced by “military police in the black neighborhood” protecting the rich, the New Black Panthers should be looked upon as Founding Fathers who declare war and are “willing to die or kill to save our babies and to save a black nation that is dying before our eyes.”
Nzinga said, “America is about protecting the rich and the powerful.”
He added, “We pay taxes. They have declared war on us and it’s nothing but state racism.”
“So if we say we are at war, we should be applauded like George Washington,” Nzinga continued. “We should be applauded like Thomas Jefferson. We should be applauded like the Founding Fathers of the country.”
“This is not the hate hour, this is the love hour,”he added. “We have to love ourselves enough to be willing to die or kill to save our babies and to save a black nation that is dying before our eyes.”
So, who else is heavily invested in pushing this false narrative concerning the death of Freddy Gray?
I may just be a crazy ol’ cracka’, but, it’s difficult not to be a Conspiracy Theorist when you read this, again from the local CBS Affiliate in Baltimore:
A Maryland sheriff who traveled to Baltimore to help law enforcement stop Monday’s riots told 105.7 The Fan that he was stunned when officers alerted him of the orders to stand down.Michael Lewis is the Sheriff in Wicomico County, and was also a Sergeant with the Maryland State Police. He joined Ed Norris and Steve Davis on Thursday to talk about the alleged controversial orders the police were given during the riots.
Lewis said it wasn’t his intention to come to Baltimore, a drive of about two hours, but he felt it was his duty to help.
“I hadn’t planned to go to Baltimore at all. I watched the events unfold Saturday night like we all did, and was very concerned about what I saw, and the the lack of response Saturday night,” he said. “I immediately rallied up the troops. We made sure our MRAP was prepared and ready. … We were assigned to assigned to protect Baltimore City Police headquarters, all of E. Fayette Street up to City Hall, to include City Hall. There wasn’t a whole lot of activity taking place at all. We could smell that putrid smell of burning tires and a city on fire when as we came into the city. Had lots of concerns like everyone else. We maintained our post all night long until we were relieved.”
But what shocked him the most, he said, was when city police told him not to confront and accost the rioters.
“I was sick to my stomach like everybody else. … This was urban warfare, no question about it. They were coming in absolutely beaten down. The [city officers] got out of their vehicles, thanked us profusely for being there, apologized to us for having to be there. They said we could have handled this, we were very capable of handling this, but we were told to stand down, repeatedly told to stand down,” he said. “I had never heard that order come from anyone — we went right out to our posts as soon as we got there, so I never heard the mayor say that. But repeatedly these guys, and there were many high-ranking officials from the Baltimore City Police Department … and these guys told me they were essentially neutered from the start. They were spayed from the start. They were told to stand down, you will not take any action, let them destroy property. I couldn’t believe it, I’m a 31-year veteran of law enforcement. … I had never heard anything like this before in my life and these guys obviously aren’t gonna speak out and the more I thought about this, … I had to say a few things. I apologize if I’ve upset people, but I believe in saying it like it is.”
Lewis said though he didn’t hear the order to stand down come from the mayor, he did hear it from police officials.
“I heard it myself over the Baltimore City police radio that I had tethered to my body-armor vest, I heard it repeatedly. ‘Stand down, stand down, stand down! Back up, back up, retreat, retreat!’ I couldn’t believe those words. Those are words I’ve never heard in my law enforcement vocabulary,” he said. “Baltimore City police, all law enforcement agencies are very capable of handling that city. They’re trained to handle that city. These guys were hearing words that had never been echoed in their lives, in their careers.”
Lewis claims after the riots many officers told him they were done being cops in the city and how heartbroken they are that they were not allowed to defend their city and stop businesses from burning.
Okay, gentle readers…just how high up does this “conspiracy” go?
I am afraid that it goes all the way to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, DC.
During Obama’s tenure as president, several times, in any “nationally-reported racial incident” between a black man and the police, he has come down on the police, first, before there has been any evidence as to the reality of the “incident”.
As I wrote the other day, this knee-jerk reaction is what one would expect from a Community Organizer, but, certainly not from the President of the United States of America.
Now, the Petulant President swears up and down that, even though the first thing he does in these instances, is get the Attorney General and Department of Justice involved, he does not want to nationalize our Community Police Forces.
But, then again, he said that the guy who was the Ghost Writer of his two “Auto-Biographies” and who launched his campaign for State Senator, Former Member of the Weather Underground, Radical Bomber Bill Ayers, was “just a guy in the neighborhood”.
I wonder if Obama’s National Police Force Uniforms will feature brown shirts?
Until He Comes (and, it may be sooner that later),
