Baltimore Is Totally Trying To Take Back Their Streets Or Something

This is typical in big cities run mostly/solely by members of the Democratic Party. Crime running rampant, so they come up with all sorts of squishy feel good measures. Baltimore just tried a 300 Man March[1] on bikes to stop the violence. There are demonstrations and marches and sermons and this and that, but, there rarely ever seems to be “hey, let’s go arrest the hell out of the bad people and prosecute them”. Which plays into a statement by Baltimore’s mayor

The onslaught of violence in Baltimore this summer isn’t only devastating the victims, their families and friends, Council President Bernard C. “Jack” Young said Tuesday — it’s also embarrassing the city on a national level.

“The image they’re showing of our city is sickening,” Young said told a crowd in Park Heights during a National Night Out celebration.

They should have worried about that when the police were essentially told to stand down and the mayor said to give looters space to destroy, all broadcast on live TV.

Forty-five people were killed in July, the city’s deadliest month in four decades, and 116 have been slain between May and last month — a three-month record.

At events around the city Tuesday night, Young, Mayor Stephanie-Rawlings Blake, interim Police Commissioner Kevin Davis and other officials declared their intent to “take back” the neighborhoods from those who are committing crimes and turn Baltimore’s image around.

“The community is coming out to say, ‘Enough is enough,'” Rawlings-Blake said. “‘We want to work in partnership for a safer Baltimore.'”

This has been done time and time again in Baltimore and other cities. Yet, they keep needing to do this kind of thing. I wonder why?

“Too many in our community know who the perpetrators are,” Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blacks said. “We know who is perpetrating the violence. We have to speak up, we can’t be silent. That’s what National Night Out is about, to say we’re going to come forward and reclaim our streets.”

If you know who they are, why not roust them, arrest them, and prosecute them? Snitch them out. What, exactly, does “speaking up” do? Does she think the criminal element will suddenly have a change of heart? The criminals know exactly who owns the streets, and it is not the mayor and her ilk, not when they are soft on crime.

Neighbors line-danced to the “Cupid Shuffle” and enjoyed burgers and hot dogs, while kids jumped rope and played in two bouncy castles.

I’m sure this totally made the criminals all squishy inside and change their minds.

Councilwoman Sharon Green Middleton stirred up the celebrants and spoke to their dedication.

“That is what brings pride back into your community,” she said. “I can’t thank you all enough for coming together.”

Nothing says pride like watching your neighbors loot, pillage and commit arson in your own neighborhood. On the bright side, there were no reported shootings Tuesday overnight into Wednesday. Unlike with this poor unlucky soul the previous night

Overnight Shooting: 4100 block Frederick Avenue. Man reported to be shot in the groin area. Southwest District detectives investigating.

Never forget that this is a Democratic Party run city. This is all on them, just like in Detroit and other heavily violent cities.
