Very Liberal And Democratic Party Run Baltimore Ties 43 Year Old Murder Record

Things are going swimmingly in yet another Democratic Party run city, and firing the chief of police has really helped, and #BlackLivesMatter or something

(AP[1]) Baltimore reached a grim milestone on Friday, three months after riots erupted in response to the death of Freddie Gray in police custody: With 45 homicides in July, the city has seen more bloodshed in a single month than it has in 43 years.

Police reported three deaths — two men shot Thursday and one on Friday. The men died at local hospitals.

With their deaths, this year’s homicides reached 189, far outpacing the 119 killings by July’s end in 2014. Nonfatal shootings have soared to 366, compared to 200 by the same date last year. July’s total was the worst since the city recorded 45 killings in August 1972, according to The Baltimore Sun.

Last year, Baltimore recorded 208 homicides. Of those, 189 where Blacks, and mostly men. The numbers aren’t out for 2015, but, again, the vast majority of homicide victims[2] in Democratic Party run Baltimore are Blacks, and mostly men. The Baltimore Sun[3] also reminds us that the city had 275,000 more residents in 1972 than it does now. I suspect the city’s population will drop even more by the end of this year, as residents of all colors get the heck out.

Baltimore is not unique in its suffering; crimes are spiking in big cities around the country.

Who runs all these big cities around the country?

Crime experts and residents of Baltimore’s most dangerous neighborhoods cite a confluence of factors: mistrust of the police; generalized anger and hopelessness over a lack of opportunities for young black men; and competition among dealers of illegal drugs, bolstered by the looting of prescription pills from pharmacies during the riot.

Generalized anger and hopelessness. Lack of opportunity. Sounds like Liberalism is working wonders in this Democratic Party run city.

Let’s not forget that the gun laws in Baltimore, and Maryland, are among the strictest in the country[4], and is #7 in the nation[5] for gun laws that “keep guns out of the hands of criminals”, per the Brady Campaign. How’s that working out in the generalized anger and hopelessness Democratic Party run city of Baltimore?
