My Ten Baltimore Predictions

1.  All six cops demand separate court appearance/episodes, something that the city prosecution team will not be happy or thrilled about.

2.  First case occurs by September and is a failure for the prosecution....no conviction on any charge.

3.  Strong attempt to push all cases out of Baltimore.  At least one case on far east side of state, with heavy white/Latino presence.  Rest of cases will be far west (Rockville, Frederick, Hagerstown), with same issue....heavy Latino/white presence on jury).

4.  While pressing on lighter charges and offering incredible deals.....none of the cops accept plea bargains.

5.  Second and third cases will be mostly all innocent situations, and scaring the urban public in Baltimore that no conviction will occur.

6.  Major riots by October/November.  Cops refuse to provide adequate protection and stand-down on their own.  Mayor and city council is shocked at amount of damage.  Governor refuses to bring the national guard in.

7.  The only guilty gain for the mayor and prosecutor will be one or two charges on the driver of the truck and the fact he didn't buckle the arrested guy into his seat.  Maximum jail time given is two years.

8.  No one in Baltimore by early 2016 believes in 'justice'.  This reshapes the whole Democratic playing strategy for the state, and for the 2016 presidential election.

9.  Cops will refrain from enforcing any drug laws in Baltimore for remainder of the summer.  Statistical average are half of what they'd normally be.

10.  The mayor and council decide by July to put up $300,000 for a statue of Freddie.  It'll be dedicated by spring of 2016.

Maybe I'm wrong on some of these.....but....maybe not.
