    Snip

    Suiter was shot in the head just before 5 p.m. Wednesday while working a case, along a particularly violent block on Bennett Place.

    Detectives have cameras on their vehicles? I'm not sure why he wasn't caught on Video

    Suiter was working the case with his partner from the homicide unit and wanted to speak to a suspicious-looking man in a vacant lot between rowhomes. But shortly after Suiter approached, the man pulled a gun and fired.

    Dozens of people protesting the extended police presence in the neighborhood have been tweeting with the hashtag “#FreeWestBaltimore,” with some deriding the police action as “martial law.”

    From the link:
    “While the search for a killer is, of course, a high priority for the police, the limits on lawful police behavior do not disappear even when engaged in that pursuit,” ACLU of Maryland senior staff attorney David Rocah said in the statement. “And at least one federal appellate court has said that a similar police cordon and checkpoint system was unconstitutional.”

    City Solicitor Andre Davis, a former senior judge on the Fourth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals, said Sunday he understands the inconvenience of the extended lockdown to neighbors but sees no legal qualms with the Police Department’s shutdown of the neighborhood, given the circumstances.

    “I don’t think it’s terribly abnormal or unusual,” Davis said.

    Not to get o/t or go political but it could also be that a systemic problem with police and the black community brought on by many many decades of harrasment and mass incarceration without justice have made that community understandably mistrustful of LE and their motives. Particularly in this current political climate. Particularly in Baltimore.

    Just offering an alternative way to view....

    Back on point to the victim here...the deceased officer. My deepest sympathies to his family and friends.

    I think they're more worried about being harassed and falsely accused than being caught doing something illegal. What are the odds a cop murderer is going to harm them vs. the odds they'll be assaulted, intimidated or arrested without cause? We're all aware of the climate in the USA so it's no surprise some Baltimore residents don't trust LE. Consider:

    Daniel Anderson, 46, said he’s sick of the flashing police lights that shine into his bedroom window and keep him up at night, and tired of having to show an ID and a police pass to get onto his street.
    His 12-year-old son was late to school one day after he was questioned by SWAT agents, he said. His wife keeps getting held up on her way to catch the bus.
    The organization said it had received reports that people have faced pat-down searches, and nonresidents have been barred from entering the area.

    Circuit Judge Wanda Keyes Heard said Wesley Cagle, 47, committed "an egregious violation" and failed to "serve and protect" when he shot Michael Johansen in December 2014.
    Johansen was already unarmed and subdued when he was shot.

    Hours after reopening the streets early Monday, there were signs of police taking over part of the neighborhood again.

    http://www.wbaltv.com/article/author...-shot/13810333

    Police Commissioner Kevin Davis said the autopsy led investigators to a significant piece of evidence. More police showed up to the crime scene taking more photos.

    Still, police think Detective Suiter's killer is in the area. Commissioner Davis said, "These killers don't go far, we think he's in the city and we think he may be wounded."

    This seems like a dangerous situation for residents and LE. I would be terrified in this neighborhood.

    Baltimore Mayor Reacts To Crime: ‘I Am Deeply Disturbed

    http://baltimore.cbslocal.com/2017/1...rime-violence/

    BALTIMORE (WJZ)– Last week the Baltimore police commissioner was fired up at a press conference, Wednesday, the mayor responded to those who are lashing out at her. They say she doesn’t take the violence seriously.

    Pugh says they’re moving the hiring process along as fast as they can with officers but the City might not feel the impact until next year.

    The department said once officers make it through the academy, they are immediately deployed to foot patrol in various communities, including the Inner Harbor.

    Pugh fired back at critics Wednesday who question her leadership as Baltimore is closing in on one of it’s deadliest times ever, hitting 300 plus murders for the third year in a row.

    “I am deeply disturbed about the violence and this is the number one priority of the City,” she said.

    Vicious, random attacks like Sebastain Dvorak, who was killed in Canton after a night out with friends, to Kia Martin’s daughter, who was beat down at the Inner Harbor.

    Many are calling for a more obvious presence of police in their communities.

    Mayor Pugh acknowledges the City is battling a shortage of officers, but that close to 200 individuals have already made it through the hiring process.
    ================================================== ================================================

    Looks like they are having a hard time finding people who want to police this city. No wonder.

    That detective was there to investigate a local double murder. And he gets shot in the head in broad daylight on the street.

    LE thinks they murder suspect is hiding in the immediate area, wounded. And people are complaining that they are late for school or work because of the crime scene searches.
