Instead of sending in police in riot gear, I propose we simply send in mothers to get the job done.
The mother who confronted and struck her son in the head and face at the Baltimore protest – that was assault.
Never miss a local story.
We have people crossing our southern border to enter the land of opportunity. Yet people in Baltimore are rioting due to a lack of opportunity. Where have we gone wrong?
I challenge those of you who believe that “reverse racism” is a real problem: Show me a list of unarmed white men killed by black cops.
How is your government supposed to keep track of you if your tattooed skin won’t allow your Apple Watch to work properly?

What’s wrong with Kansas? The state’s latest example hails from Garden City, where an 11-year-old son was put into state custody because of his mother’s medical use of marijuana. This is incredibly intolerant and immoral extreme rightism.
