The Battle Of Baltimore - How To Win It! (originally published 2007)

Summer's here and another election grows near.  
While politicians talk, criminals continue to walk.  

The streets of Baltimore are dangerous and deadly
 as the battle wages on.  
Gone is the hope of growth and mobility.  
Gone is the the hope of peace and prosperity.  

Mamma's crying and she just won't stop.  
She looks around and it's only getting worse.  
She pleads with heaven as baby boy lies in a hearse.  

Another one bites the dust.  
In the police there is no trust.  
Leadership is corrupt and the system is broken.  
On the news lies continue to be spoken,
 but on the street it's reality we meet. 

Thousands have died, many more will follow.  
The empty promises ring hollow as I watch another young man who tried and tried to flee the hood, get taken down buy the gunman's bullet.  

The system in place, it ain't no good.  
It continues to fail the neighborhood.  
Keifer will you crack down on the reefer man bringing down my block?
Ms. Dixon you've gotten your licks in, 
you were temporary, but were you exemplary?
Will you make a difference?  
To me it makes no sense how the bloodshed continues.

In this city there's an all out emergency,
but a sense of urgency I do not see.  
The powers that be, continue to fail you and me.  
Our pleas they ignore as they show us the door.  

Do they really care?  If so, where does it show?  
Not in my neighborhood, not on my street. 
Stand up people, now move your feet!  

Take action, only we can save ourselves.  
Cuz truly it shows, they don't really care about us.  
Fuss if you must, but take action! 
Stand up and fight, rise up with all your might.  

Our community can no longer be a haven for the criminal mavens.  
Without fail they should be in jail, but really it starts with you.  
What you do is make the call.  
Be relentless and report them all.  
If you don't who will?
Do you want to see them continue to kill, kill, kill?

The time for us to work together has begun, 
one by one we can reclaim these streets. 
Block by block, we need to take stock.  
Be proud of your place, stand up to the criminal disgrace.  
For only we can save us.
There ain't no harm in trying to reclaim the charm.

To all those who willfully, deliberately and routinely violate the civil rights of law abiding American Citizens; Yes, you're powerful. Sure, you're everywhere. But this is still America, and the Constitution of the United States Of America still reigns supreme as the law of the land. The Baltimore Spectator will vigorously and aggressively defend against any and all attempts at spying and suppression. Let it be known to all that we are already aware of the regular monitoring and shadowing attempts. There is nothing to hide, but cross the line and there will be hell to pay.

In the end, efforts to impinge upon the freedoms of the people will ultimately fail. Some of us may get taken out in the ongoing battle for true and lasting freedom, but as I've said many times before, and will say till the day I die or get taken out by you goons, THERE ARE MORE OF US, THAN THERE ARE OF YOU.

A.F. James MacArthur -- American patriot & lover of liberty.
