Description

In the dying days of April 2015, in Baltimore Maryland, race riots erupted. As world media focused on the death of one petty criminal and the firestorm around a certain West Baltimore location, what else happened? According to the author, the riots were primarily a diversionary tactic by drug gangs to put police out of position, for purposes that can only be conjectured, and secondarily, to facilitate a race purge, that placed white residents of Baltimore City and Eastern Baltimore County under black mob rule for a full week, while every police resource was diverted to handle the mushrooming media circus. War Drums is a street level memoir of the working class people of a town often called Harm City, who were publicly and officially abandoned to the criminal underworld by their own municipal governments.show more
