Democrat World: Baltimore Has Highest Monthly Murder Total Since 1971

Congratulations, Democrats who control Baltimore lock, stock, and barrel. Congratulations, Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, who wanted to give thugs space to destroy. Congratulations, prosecutor Marilyn Mosby, who took the side of the thugs

(Baltimore Sun) With three men killed in eastside shootings on Sunday, Baltimore recorded its deadliest month in more than 40 years.

The 43 killings in May surpassed the 42 homicides the city saw in August 1990, and left Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake defending police and her administration. (snip)

Baltimore has recorded more homicides in a single month: There were 44 in December 1971 and 45 in August 1972.

But in that era, the city had approximately 908,000 residents — nearly 300,000 more than today.

Peter Moskos, a former Baltimore police officer who is an assistant professor at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York, called May the city’s deadliest month ever based on the per-capita homicide rate.

Baltimore’s homicide rate per 100,000 population in May was 6.1 — topping the rates in the early 1970s, Moskos wrote Friday on his “Cop in the Hood” blog.

In that Cop In the Hood blog post, Moskos notes that based on population density, May has the highest murder total since records started being kept in 1970.

This is your city, Democrats. This is what you made. This is your responsibility. Did you know that 27 pharmacies were looted during the April riots? It wasn’t just that CVS that appeared on the news and Twitter. The DEA is investigating the theft of all the narcotics.

The typical homicide rate per 1,000 per year is 0.37 in Baltimore. The national average is 0.04. There have been 116 homicides in Baltimore this year. The yearly average is 233, so Baltimore is well on its way to exceeding that shameful number. Right now Baltimore is safer than just 3% of American cities. That will surely rise.

This doesn’t even encompass any potential spike in other violent crimes (assault, rape, and robbery). Nor do we have numbers on property crimes, which have been running at double the U.S. national median.

It should also be noted that murders and shootings are also up in many other heavily Democratic cities, cities that have utterly failed the Black residents, who are committing high levels of Black In Origin crimes. Democrats can’t blame Republicans (though we know they will try), as Democrats have been running these cities for 40+ years, instituting their policies.
