Baltimore’s ‘Mom of the Year’

Someday I look forward to no more cartoons conveying disbelief over another black person dying while in police custody. It seems that every month I’ve had to reluctantly weigh in on another incident. I can’t wait to stop drawing about the actions of the few bad cops that overshadow those of all the good cops.


Looting in Baltimore This cartoon is about more than Baltimore. Police in every major US city find themselves on the front lines of an entire system that still – after a couple hundred years – hasn’t outgrown intrinsic prejudices. That’s the stubborn, intractable force behind the horrific riots in Baltimore, and elsewhere.
