I saw this story last week ago and thought, "fucking Baltimore. Rest in Peace, officer."

Then it got significantly more disturbing when I read the update this morning.

Slain Baltimore cop was set to testify against fellow cops | Daily Mail Online

Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis has claimed that there is no link between Suiter's death and the drug-running indictment.
'The BPD and the FBI do not possess any information that this incident is part of any conspiracy,' Davis told the Baltimore Sun.


Really? That's the line you are going with? Awesome! Of course we believe you. <I want the head-into-brick-wall emoji back>

That was one brave detective, I cannot imagine the pressure he must have felt. Rest in Peace, sir.

Homicide, Life on the Streets has always been in my Top3 list of TV shows ever made. I've always wondered if real chiefs -of-police and commissioners were as slimy of politicians as they are portrayed on that show.

It's very likely a line to try and get those guys to relax their guard a bit. They know how it all works though.

Fucking cunts.

Could be a coincidence...but cops in league with drug rings don't have to do the deed...just drop a hint to their business partners that the guy needs to be whacked.

RIP Detective.

The loss of an LEO is a loss to any community. More so to the LEO community as a whole.

Rest In God's Own Peace, Officer Suiter. Prayers out.

Even if both events aren't related, "perception is reality" and I can't imagine the case won't receive more scrutiny.

Blue skies.
