Crime Surges In Baltimore As Arrests Drop After Riots

There have been less arrests in Baltimore now that the riots are stopped. Coincidentally (or not), crime seems to be back on it’s way up[1]…

Crime is rising in Baltimore, and some law enforcement experts suspect an anti-cop climate stemming from the racially charged case of Freddie Gray is at least partly responsible.

Homicides in 2015 so far stand at 100, up from 71 for the same period last year, and on pace to be the Charm City’s deadliest year since 2007. Nonfatal shootings are up 70 percent this year, following a particularly violent week that saw 19 people shot on Tuesday and Wednesday alone.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake calls it “frustrating” and “disheartening,” but is “…still resolved to continue to reduce violent crime in our city.” She may want to try something other than the same failed Democrat policies.
