Entire Baltimore Neighborhood Under Lockdown: "Police Declared Martial Law"


by Tyler Durden
Nov 20, 2017



Five days ago, Det. Sean Suiter, a married father of five and an 18-year veteran with the Baltimore Police, was patrolling the streets of West Baltimore around 5pm last Wednesday when he saw suspicious activity. Suiter approached a man and was shot point blank in the head, in a summary execution. He was rushed to the hospital in critical condition where he later died of his injuries.

In response, Baltimore Police reacted with ‘fire and fury’ turning the neighborhood where Suiter was shot into an “open-air prison”, shutting down city streets and enabling checkpoints for citizens while officers in tactical gear went door to door, according to Baltimore Brew. Residents were prohibited from entering their own neighborhood unless they showed proper identification, these extreme measures have been in place for 4-5 days.

“They’ve been to my house three times asking, ‘Did you hear anything? Do you know anything,’” said Edward Stanley, a local resident, who had to show a yellow slip before entering the neighborhood.



Baltimore Brew said, the neighborhood was tuned into “open-air prison”, as the complete lockdown was in attempt to collect evidence and search for the shooter.

Police initially said they needed to cordon off the area to try to capture the shooter. Police have said Suiter was in the 900 block of Bennett Place, investigating a previous homicide, when he was shot on Wednesday. So far, no arrests have been announced in the case. This morning, homicide detective Mike Newton told The Brew that the lockdown was necessary to collect evidence.​

One community group took pictures of a checkpoint in West Baltimore.

If you really sit back and think about it this all goes back to the 14th making us federal citizens. If the states were in charge of their own set of rights then shit hole like Maryland could amend their constitutions to fix their own toilets and it wouldnt matter so much to the rest of us.

If a white cop would have shot a black man, the inner city unwashed masses would have rioted and burned down the neighborhood anyway.

Philly had the right approach.................................

The resulting explosions ignited a fire from fuel for a gasoline-powered generator in the rooftop bunker; it spread and eventually destroyed approximately 65 nearby houses. The firefighters, who had earlier deluge-hosed the MOVE members in a failed attempt to evict them from the building, stood by as the fire caused by the bomb engulfed the first house and spread to others, having been given orders to let the fire burn. Despite the earlier drenching of the building by firefighters, officials said they feared that MOVE would shoot at the firefighters.[6][18][19][20] Eleven people (John Africa, five other adults, and five children aged 7 to 13) died in the resulting fire, and more than 250 people in the neighborhood were left homeless.[21] Ramona Africa, one of the two survivors, said that police fired at those trying to escape.[22]


you don't stop shooting until the target changes shape or catches fire!

Police commissioner: Slain Baltimore detective was to testify in case of indicted officers
Justin Fenton Contact Reporter
November 22, 2017 6:35 PM

Slain Baltimore homicide Detective Sean Suiter was scheduled to testify before a federal grand jury in the case against a squad of indicted officers on the day after he was shot, Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis said Wednesday evening.

The revelation brings together two cases that have sent shock waves through the Police Department and the city as a whole: the federal prosecutions of eight members of the department’s elite gun task force, who are accused of shaking down citizens and conspiring with drug dealers, and the killing of Suiter last week in West Baltimore, the first of an on-duty officer by a suspect in 10 years.

Davis said Wednesday that federal authorities have told him “in no uncertain terms” that Suiter was not a target of their investigation into the Gun Trace Task Force. He said authorities have no reason to believe Suiter’s killing was connected to his pending testimony.

“The BPD and FBI do not possess any information that this incident ... is part of any conspiracy,” Davis said. He said evidence shows the shooting occurred spontaneously, as Suiter investigated a suspicious person in the Harlem Park neighborhood.

Mayor Catherine Pugh was briefed on the case Wednesday and said she asked Davis to disclose the information to the public, due to theories swirling in the community.

The Gun Trace Task Force was entrusted with executing a key element of Davis’ strategy against the city’s historic surge in killing: getting illegal guns out of the hands of the trigger pullers who are driving the violence.

But a federal grand jury indicted eight task force members earlier this year on charges of racketeering and other violations, and authorities are continuing to investigate allegations related to the squad.

Four officers have pleaded guilty, and at least two of them are cooperating with authorities.

The other four members have pleaded not guilty. They are scheduled for trial in January.

Davis said he was told by federal prosecutors that Suiter was to testify in the case of the indicted officers in relation to an incident from several years ago. It was not clear whether his testimony would be helpful or harmful to the officers.

Among the officers to stand trial is Sgt. Wayne Jenkins, the supervisor of the task force.

Jenkins and Suiter were involved in a high-speed chase in 2010 in which the elderly father of a Baltimore police officer was killed. Two men were charged in the case. Umar Burley and Brent Matthews were both convicted of heroin possession charges and sentenced to federal prison.

Court records show that the two assistant U.S. attorneys who are prosecuting the Gun Trace Task Force entered their appearances in closed high-speed chase case in late August, and there have been multiple sealed filings since then.

The U.S. attorney’s office in Maryland declined to comment Wednesday night.

State court records show that Suiter made dozens of arrests with Detective Maurice Ward, one of the officers who has pleaded guilty in the Gun Trace Task Force case, between 2007 and 2009. He made two arrests in 2008 with Detective Momodu Gondo, and three arrests in 2010 with Jenkins.

A federal grand jury this month indicted former Baltimore police Officer Eric Troy Snell, now a Philadelphia police officer, in an alleged conspiracy with some members of Baltimore’s Gun Trace Task Force to sell drugs and split proceeds.

In one allegation, federal prosecutors accuse Jenkins and Detecetive Jemell Rayam of initiating a high-speed chase in 2016 in which driver of the vehicle threw more than 9 ounces of cocaine out of the window of his vehicle before crashing near Mondawmin Mall.

Prosecutors say the officers retrieved the cocaine. They say Jenkins told Rayam to sell most of it and give Jenkins proceeds of the sale, and Rayam agreed to do it.

Rayam has pleaded guilty to racketeering in his own indictment and is cooperating with authorities.

Police asked anyone with information to call homicide detectives at 410-396-2100, the FBI at 1-800-CALL-FBI, or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP.

Feds: Philly officer sold drugs stolen by corrupt Baltimore police squad
Jeremy Roebuck, Staff Writer

Updated: Tuesday, November 14, 2017, 5:49 PM

Federal agents arrested a Philadelphia police officer Tuesday, accusing him of conspiring with officers in Baltimore to sell cocaine and heroin seized from that city’s streets.

Prosecutors say that Eric Troy Snell, 33, earned thousands of dollars serving as a conduit between corrupt members of a Baltimore police task force who stole the drugs and his brother, who sold them in Philadelphia.

Investigators also have accused Snell of threatening the children of a Baltimore officer who pleaded guilty in the case.

His arrest is the latest in a widening police corruption scandal that has rocked Maryland’s largest city, resulting in the arrests of eight members of an elite gun task force there who prosecutors have accused of robbing and extorting drug dealers for years.

A Philadelphia police spokesman said that Snell — a three-year veteran of the force who had been assigned to the department’s 35th District in Northwest Philadelphia — would be suspended for 30 days with intent to dismiss.

Snell began his police career in Baltimore before arriving in Philadelphia in 2014. It was at the police academy in Maryland that he met Jemell Rayam, a fellow officer and his primary contact with the Baltimore Gun Trace Task Force.

The squad had been deployed to crack down on the proliferation of illegal guns in that city. But prosecutors now say that Rayam and several cohorts, including two commanding sergeants, used their positions to rob drug dealers and pocket hundreds of thousands of dollars uncovered while searching homes and cars of suspected criminals.

According to Snell’s indictment, the Philadelphia officer set up an October 2016 meeting between his brother, who is not named in court filings, and Rayam to arrange for the sale of cocaine seized by the task force.

After Snell’s brother sold the drugs, the officer allegedly deposited $1,000 in proceeds in Rayam’s bank account, keeping $1,000 for himself. Several similar transactions followed over the next two months, the indictment alleges.

Rayam, arrested along with six other officers in March, pleaded guilty to one count of racketeering conspiracy last month.

But in recorded jailhouse phone conversations referenced in court filings, Snell allegedly pressured Rayam to keep his name out of the ongoing investigation.

“Snell told Rayam to ‘stand tall’ and said he would ‘keep an eye’ on Rayam’s kids, which Rayam perceived as a threat to harm Rayam’s children if Rayam told authorities about Snell’s illegal drug trafficking,” the indictment says.

Snell made his initial appearance Tuesday in federal court in Baltimore on drug conspiracy charges. It was not immediately clear whether he had retained a lawyer.

Wait...you mean all of this crap is about a few thousand bux worth of dope? How is that even worth the time of those overpaid fancy unConstitutional federal pigs?

Shouldn't those guys be busy manufacturing terrists out of nothing and pretending to investigate bogus Russian collusion claims anyway?

REVEALED: 'Corrupt' ex-cop SET UP slain Baltimore detective so he would find a stash of planted heroin and frame a drug dealer that he wanted off the streets
  • Sean Suiter was going to testify about a 2010 search of drug dealer Umar Burley's car
  • He carried out the search at the request of Wayne Jenkins, one of the seven former officers now on trial for federal racketeering charges
  • Jenkins allegedly planted 28 grams of heroin in Burley's vehicle then told Suiter - who he said was 'clueless' about the plot - to look inside it
  • The discovery of the drugs led to Burley being sentenced to 15 years in prison
  • On November 16, Suiter, 43, was shot in the head as he canvassed about a year-old murder case he was working on
  • His partner took cover and did not see his killer who is yet to be identified
  • Suiter was due to testify before the grand jury in Jenkins' case on November 17
  • Federal prosecutors have now charged Jenkins with additional charges over the 2010 incident
  • As a result, the Baltimore PD finally relinquished their murder probe into Suiter's death and asked the FBI to take over
  • Suiter was never suspected of being involved in the corruption scheme
  • It is now clear when he learned the drugs he found in 2010 had been 'planted'

When do the white people of Baltimore get some space to destroy like Mayor Hyphen gave its negroes?

Wait, did that happen in Baltimore? I'm having trouble keeping track of which happening is in which jungle!

I don't know why they have to 'schedule' a testimony. It should be set up that you just walk over to the courthouse, swear to tell the truth, and tell it - be it on video or sworn affidavit.

"Scheduling" it for a future time when the grand jury is assembled is ridiculous.


I don't know how many times we hear the witness gets taken out... and I don't mean on a date!

Federal prosecutors have now charged Jenkins with additional charges over the 2010 incident
Now, not only is the US Attorney's Office in Maryland asking that Jenkins be convicted of additional charges but they also want Burley's drug conviction for the 2010 raid to be vacated - a humiliating request for an office which spent years tirelessly trying to put him behind bars.
Yet another awesome success for the illegal war on drugs. Not.

Imagine how much less corruption there'd be if this silly drug war went away. There'd be a whole lot less cops, a whole lot less corruption in policing, and a whole lot less "perpetrators" of victimless "crimes" in rape cages.

EXCLUSIVE: This is real life, not The Wire, say family of Baltimore cop shot dead with his own gun the day before he was to testify against 'corrupt cops who planted drugs' - so 'wait for the evidence' to find his real killer
  • Baltimore Detective Sean Suiter was found dead from a gunshot wound in the Harlem Park neighborhood as he searched for clues to a triple homicide
  • He was due to give evidence the next day in an anti-corruption case after drugs were planted in a suspect's car at the end of a car chase which killed a passerby
  • Suiter had found the drugs but another cop is accused of planting them and two men who were wrongfully convicted have been cleared
  • The case has raised questions over Suiter's death and whether it could be linked to him giving evidence against other cops from the elite Gun Trace Task Force
  • Now Suiter's family say they just want to see proper answers and do not want people jumping to conclusion
  • His uncle, who helped bring him up after his father's death, tells DailyMail.com:' People need to give the police time and they need to focus on the evidence.'
  • Married father of five was an Army veteran looking to retire after 18 years as a Baltimore cop
