May 2015 Was Baltimore’s Deadliest Month Since 1972



In the wake of the death of Freddie Gray while in police custody in Baltimore, Maryland, the subsequent actions of the DA and Mayor and the arrest of police officers, May 2015 was the deadliest month in Baltimore in over 40 years, since 1972.  Who didn’t see this coming? Add 106 shootings as well and the number of arrests down. Following the death of Freddie Gray, six officers were charged with charges that range from second degree depraved murder for the driver of the van to manslaughter to misconduct in office to false imprisonment for others. And then there was the ensuing riots that took place in Baltimore where the Baltimore Mayor all but told the police to stand down and let the mob loot and burn the city. But of course this is just a coincidence that on the foot-heals of State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby seemingly all too gleeful in appeasing the mob, rushing to judgement and taking sides rather than standing for the rule of law. Many have thought that Mosby grossly overcharged the officers and is going to face issues down the line during the trial of these officers. May 2015 being the deadliest month is also a culmination of decades of failed liberal policies.

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.

Speaking at a morning ceremony to honor McKenzie Elliott, the 3-year-old killed by a stray bullet in August, Rawlings-Blake said it’s time to stop finger-pointing and assigning blame for the recent violence.

This weekend former Gov. Martin O’Malley announced that he is challenging Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders for the Democrat nomination. As stated at The Other McCain, this is Martin O’Malley’s legacy of failure to Baltimore, MD. It kind of makes one wonder how he thinks he is going to run for the Democratic nomination for President with this track record of failure. Then again, it is the Democrat Party.

      When a mayor and others in the city government hamstring the police as they have in Baltimore, this is what happens.

      The Yutes in the getto have a free pass to do whatever they want regardless of the destruction to the community. Most of these murders were black on black crime and there were no riots with destruction of property.

      If “black lives matter” then the black community should do something to stabilize their communities and stop this behavior. The sad truth is that they just sit there and do nothing until some “rabble rowsers” stir them up when the police do their job.

      The black communities across the country are concentrated in large cities where they can behave as tribes rather than be a viable part of the country. Some escape and become good citizens, but most are stuck because of ignorance and apathy willing to depend on others for their daily sustenance. They are then leaches on society rather than contributors who build society.
