Interesting Sun Reader Comment on The Baltimore Grand Prix

The comment below was from the most recent Baltimore Sun article attempting to present both sides of the argument, for an against the Baltimore Grand Prix.

I lived in Long Beach, CA when the Grand Prix came to that city.  I’ve also lived in Baltimore, so I know what you are in for.  Two words: mayhem and chaos.  Just as in Long Beach, this venue is for the enjoyment of the few (wealthy and influential), while disrupting and inconveniencing the rest.  

Here is what you are experiencing this weekend :  People are dead because rescue medics are not be able to get to you in a timely manner.  There is a spike in crime, because law enforcement are tied up with directing traffic in circles and crowd control.  Businesses have to close because customers are not able to get to them.  Public transit is interrupted for the many that need it most.  If you are along the race route you are not allowed to leave your home, or get back to it if you have.  

And then there is the noise, the litter, the drunks, and people that could care less about their behavior.  The only people that will make money are the promoters (already wealthy at the expense of tax payers).  And a first time event of this magnitude will cause problems that no one previously thought of.  It took Long Beach about three years before they got it close to right.  Here is another thing.  The cars don’t just show up and race.  There are a few days of practice for the drivers and their crews to prepare.  And then a few days of after event clean up and dismantle of the course.

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.
