Yeah it just sort of happened, didn’t it? The white guy on the bicycle just appeared out of no where and now he’s dead and the black kids are being held responsible for it because they were in the wrong place at the wrong time. More black lives ruined.
And the worst thing about it is that the murderers will no longer qualify for an athletic scholarship or a patronage job with the Baltimore city government.
Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said the killing of a bicyclist in Waverly has ruined the lives of the victim and the teenage suspects charged in his death.

“I don’t know where to start,” the mayor told reporters at City Hall. “Sometimes you get so frustrated when you think about our young people, when you hear about this type of attack.”
Robert Ponsi, 29, was fatally stabbed and robbednight as he bicycled through Waverly on his way home from his job as a server at a Harbor East restaurant.
Three teens -- Prince Greene, 15, Antwan Eldridge, 17, and Daquan Middleton, 16 – are charged in his murder.
The mayor said she was grateful community members came forward with information for police that helped them make the arrests.
“Not only is it tragic because of the loss of a life, but because these other lives have been ruined as well,” Rawlings-Blake said.
