I called the Baltimore police department to confirm this. I just asked what was their dress code for employee. The man (sounded like a brotha) would not tell me over the phone but wanted me to come into the office. So maybe someone who lives in Baltimore can check this out for us. Make sure it's not a hoax.

We need to get in the habit of checking things out before we spend a lot of energy and make a fool of ourselves. Knowamsane?

Hi I'm from Baltimore.
Yes this is true. Starting Jan 1, 2007. The dress code comes into affect.
This includes the fake fingers nails, bling bling, and heavy use of make-up,
perfume and cologne. The hair length has to be short. So it's includes everyone
on the Police Force. The board that voted for the dress code has 11-blacks and
6-whites on it. Some of theseyoung officers up in this City are the most unprofessional
and ill manner individual I ever met in my life only some of them. The City Council
hopes to regain the trust of the Black Community towards these young officers who
have directed so much hate toward their only people in the community. So this made
be the reason that the dress code is beginning enforce, but the only thing that bother
me about this dress code, is how these officers will direct there attention on the individual
who do wear there hair in the locks, braids, and cornrow. Because they are upset that
they have to trim their hair.

Oh Goodness! I am sort of in shock.

Baltimore, from experience, is probably the ONLY Eastern U.S. city that I could go into, and NOT be harrassed by Police, disrespected by residents, etc. They sure do not bother me as much as I have been around there.

However, I have to say I would understand where this comes from. They do have a lot of young officers who "have their ways," then again, they do not bother me. Also, Baltimore IS a predominantly Black city, so it figures that Black folks would be making the decision(s).

While it is nice to see that they are trying to do something for the People of the Community, I do wish that the People of Baltimore as a collective bonded together, and "put the city Politicians to work." I said that based on a conversation I had with a Sistah there.

Good news; NRA filed for bankruptcy.
Bad news; Police often kill mentally and handicapped people.
I despise these racist killing NYPD. I'm glad Attorney General Letitia James filed a law suit against NYPD for using "excessive, brutal and unlawful force" against Black Lives Matter protesters! The law suit also targets the Mayor, police commissioner Dermot Shea and Chief of Department, Terry Monahan! Several NYPD cops have been suspended, along with many other racist violent killer cops across this nation.
Will the 3 white GOPs in Congress, Gosar, Biggs and Brooks, be charged with sedition and felony murder for inciting and helping Ali Alexander plan the insurrection? Ali Alexander, black trump supporter who started Stop The Steal and organized the insurrection, threw these 3 white terrorists under the bus. All of them should get long prison sentences. Alexander, a convicted felony, will likely be charged first.
2 things to share;
a. 33 more days to go before I hit 200 straight days of exercise.
b. Pls visit orangeseahorse . com. Not selling anything! It's a free site to post true short stories, poems, etc. Also free to read. We have 500,000 views and some writers have been published. These true short stories are poignant and life changing. Thanks,
Why aren't the white domestic terrorists charged w/felony murder and terrorism? YES, I answered my own question with the phrase 'white domestic terrorist'. But let's see if black traitor "Ali Alexander" will be charged w/felony murder for helping organize the deadly insurrection. His white comrades will blame him for influencing them to commit violence. His butt will be tattered after they throw him under the bus.
