    New restrictions on how police officers conduct themselves, welfare penalties for the
    families of rioters, and meeting violence with violence were all on the table while the
    people of Baltimore cleared the debris left by April rioting from their streets. Riots broke
    out in Baltimore on April 27. More than 230 people have been arrested, at least 144 cars
    and trucks have been torched, and 15 buildings have burned.

    What sparked all of that is still being debated. Most people say it was at least related to
    the death of a 25-year-old black man while in police custody. Others say teenagers
    orchestrated a “purge” on social media — a planned day of violence. What to do next is
    also still under discussion.

    Same sort of tactics used in the uk but our government went further by kicking the whole family out of any housing that was state owned. I think you guys call it the projects.

    Well, I guess the message is not to riot and breach the peace while being on the government and tax payers dole. Sounds reasonable to me.....

    A Republican member of the Maryland House of Delegates has brought up his own reform ideas that include penalties for the families of teenagers who were arrested in the riots. Delegate Patrick McDonough wants to take food stamps away from the parents of teenagers who were arrested during the riots.

    He also called for a “scientific study” of the “thug community” of Baltimore.

    He/she wouldn't put their name on this. Racist. Scientific study?
