The Baltimore Black Foot Soldiers are issuing scathing condemnations and contempt for the city’s Police Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld III and call the recent shooting of an undercover police officer involved in an illegal drug sting an act of courage.
“Punk ass Bealefeld can’t keep drugs out of our communities, the city’s leading Black Foot Soldier, Howard Cooper, damned. “He’s a failure. Rather, another way it can be said is: by his failure, this despicable pig is also responsible for the continual assault on our communities by these drugs, so he is a hypocrite. Another way it can be said is that: this despicable pig who claims he represents the law yet has historically failed to protect us from deadly addictive drugs then turns around and assigns the very cops who can’t keep the drugs out of our communities to perform undercover stings upon us. It is nothing more than the racist terrorism from these devils we are use to. Let every Black Foot Soldier celebrate the new hole in the cheek of police officer Dante Arthur, an eight-year veteran who not once in his eight year tenure prevented drugs from making it into our communities. Let us pray he never heals.”
Although Cooper says the Baltimore Foot Soldiers do not embrace the All Cops are White ideology popularized by the Chicago Black Foot Soldiers, he says the continued local hypocrisy of failing to protect residents from drugs and poverty is beginning to force many to find value in the ideology.
“THOSE VICTIMIZED BY DRUGS ENCOUNTERD THEM INADVERTENTLY. FOR, THEY SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN HERE IN THE FIRST PLACE. WHILE IT IS NO DIFFERENT THAN RUNNING A RED LIGHT, IN TERMS OF BREAKING THE LAW, THE CONSEQUENCES ARE DIFFERENT BECAUSE OF WHAT IT IS.”
“If you can’t keep drugs out of our communities, you can’t punish its victims for your failures,” he said at a small rally held near the historical Orchard Street Church where officer Arthur was wounded, Cooper chastised. “Your laws are rooted in the corrupt system that protects the rich from the poor rather than the poor from the rich. ”
Cooper attempted to quell an “all cops white” chant that rose up from angry Soldiers and others in the community who follow the movement.
“We are being held hostage by the police departments failure and the city’s hypocrisy,” one angry Foot Soldier waged.
