Baltimore, MD Residents Blame 2017 Record-High Murder Rate On Lower Police Presence

DON’T ASK FOR THINGS THEY JUST MIGHT COME TRUE

2017 was yet another record for murders in Baltimore, Maryland.  For the third year in a row Baltimore had more than 300 murders. Many point to the lack of police presence following the riots. But wait, wasn’t it those from Baltimore that were complaining about the police and their actions? Now they want a greater police presence to curtail crime? Sorry Charlie, you can’t have it both ways.

For the third year in a row, Baltimore, Md., has had more than 300 murders, reaching a new record of murders per number of residents in 2017.

Some residents attribute the high murder rate to relaxed police patrols in the city following high-profile cases of police brutality. Officers have backed off in neighborhoods, like the one where Freddie Gray was arrested.

The Rev. Kinji Scott, a pastor in Baltimore who’s held positions in local city government, says the opposite needs to happen.

“We wanted the police there,” Scott says. “We wanted them engaged in the community. We didn’t want them beating the hell out of us, we didn’t want that.”

He’s among activists who are calling for police reform to reduce the violence in Baltimore and several other high-crime cities across the U.S. that he says haven’t seen change. That change begins with a conversation between the communities directly involved, Scott says.

Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, The Killer of Kate Steinle Found Not Guilty of First & Second Degree Murder, To be Deported Again

UNBELIEVABLE & INEXPLICABLE:  THIS IS WHAT JUSTICE LOOKS LIKE FOR AN AMERICAN CITIZEN IN A SANCTUARY CITY ..

Remember when we used to live in an America where U.S. citizens were protected by the U.S. Constitution? In what can only be explain as a troubling and puzzling jury decision, illegal immigrant Jose Ines Garcia Zarate was acquitted of first and second degree murder and involuntary manslaughter. He also was found not guilty of assault with a semi-automatic weapon. He was found guilty of possessing a firearm by a felon. What, the jury didn’t find him guilty of littering?

The defense stated and obviously this clueless jury bought it, that but for the ricochet of a bullet accidentally fired by a 7 time felon, Kate Steinle would still be alive. NO! But for the fact that this 7 time felon who was illegally in the country and who had been deported numerous times, Kate Steinle would still be alive. Zarate was found guilty of possessing a firearm by a felon which means he will be deported again for the umteenth time and most likely wind up in San Francisco again. It also means that the jury knew that Zarate was a previous felon and it fell on deaf ears. Justice is supposed to be blind, not stupid. How does anyone live in this city?

Via Fox News:

Jose Ines Garcia Zarate was found not guilty Thursday of murdering Kate Steinle on Pier 14 in San Francisco in July 2015 in a case that sparked a heated national debate over illegal immigration and so-called sanctuary cities, and U.S. immigration officials said he will be deported.

Zarate was acquitted of Kate Steinle would still be alive. He also was found not guilty of assault with a semi-automatic weapon. He was found guilty of possessing a firearm by a felon. The jury had deliberated for six days.

Steinle was walking with her father and a family friend in July 2015 when she was shot, collapsing into her father’s arms. Zarate had been released from a San Francisco jail about three months before the shooting, despite a request by federal immigration authorities to detain him for deportation.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement announced late Thursday: “Following the conclusion of this case, ICE will work to take custody of Mr. Garcia Zarate and ultimately remove him from the country.”

ICE Deputy Director Tom Homan added, “San Francisco’s policy of refusing to honor ICE detainers is a blatant threat to public safety and undermines the rule of law. This tragedy could have been prevented if San Francisco had turned the alien over to ICE, as we requested, instead of releasing him back onto the streets.”

Could It Be Finally True … Is Charles Manson Close to Death?

WILL EVIL JUST DIE!!!

The face of evil for generations is finally close to death. As reported at TMZ, Charles Manson has been hospitalized and is close to death. Personally, this 83 year old can’t die soon enough. A spokeswoman for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation declined to comment regarding Manson’s status citing HIPAA privacy laws  preclude the agency “from commenting on protected health information for any inmate in our custody.”

Charles Manson is in the hospital and, as one source familiar with his situation tells TMZ, “it’s not going to get any better for him.”

We’re told Manson was rushed to a Bakersfield hospital 3 days ago, and has been wheeled around on a gurney for various treatments … escorted by 5 uniformed cops.

We’re told the 83-year-old Manson, who lays still covered in blankets, looks ashen.

Our sources say Manson’s health has been steadily deteriorating and, as it was put to us, “It’s just a matter of time.”

Manson had serious health issues back in January as well, when he was hospitalized for severe intestinal bleeding and needed surgery to repair a lesion … but was deemed too weak by doctors and sent back to prison.

We Don’t Need More Gun Laws, We Need to Follow the Ones We Have: Air Force ‘Error’ Allowed Gunman to Buy Weapons That Were Used in Texas Church Shooting that Killed 26 People … The Air Force has Launched a Review

AIR FORCE ADMITS MAJOR SCREW UP … WE DON’T NEED MORE LAWS, WE NEED MORE DETAIL AND ATTENTION TO THE ONE’S WE HAVE.

Just a day after a gunman shot and killed 26 people and wounded more than 20 others at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, Texas, the Air Force has admitted they they made an error. You might call it a fatal error. The Air Force failed to enter Devin P. Kelley’s domestic violence court-martial into a federal database that could have blocked him from buying the guns used in Sunday’s church massacre. Are you kidding me!!! From the sounds of the video below, the Air Force needs to change their rules, not just review them. Sorry, receiving a court martial due to domestic violence on your spouse and child should void you of ever owning a gun. PERIOD!

A day after a gunman massacred parishioners in a small Texas church, the Air Force admitted on Monday that it had failed to enter the man’s domestic violence court-martial into a federal database that could have blocked him from buying the rifle he used to kill 26 people.

Under federal law, the conviction of the gunman, Devin P. Kelley, for domestic assault on his wife and toddler stepson — he had cracked the child’s skull — should have stopped Mr. Kelley from legally purchasing the military-style rifle and three other guns he acquired in the last four years.

How in the hell do you screw this up? The Air Force has begun a review if how the criminal records of former Airman Devin P. Kelley following his 2012 domestic violence conviction. REALLY? As opined at Red Stated, the Air Force better being doing a lot more than that. According to Air Force spokeswoman Ann Stefanek, Federal law prohibited him from buying or possessing firearms after this conviction. Initial information indicates that Kelley’s domestic violence offense was not entered into the National Criminal Information Center database by the Holloman Air Force Base Office of Special Investigations.

“The Air Force has launched a review of how the service handled the criminal records of former Airman Devin P. Kelley following his 2012 domestic violence conviction,” the Air Force said in a statement.

The statement said Heather Wilson, the Air Force secretary, and Gen. David Goldfein, the Air Force chief of staff, had ordered the Air Force inspector general to “conduct a complete review of the Kelley case.”

The Air Force also said it was looking into whether other convictions had been improperly left unreported to the federal database for firearms background checks.

ALL BRANCHES OF THE  MILITARY better be reviewing all the cases of dishonorable discharges and make sure these individuals are in the database. They also need to review all cases of individuals who have been court martialed and tossed out if the military due to domestic assault and received bad conduct discharges. These people are criminals and need to be treated and such. A note to the LEFT, Democrats, liberals and politicians who in mere seconds after this heinous crime called for more gun control, go pound sand. So we are supposed to pass more gun control that would take the weapons out of good people’s hands to defend themselves, while we allow bureaucratic BS paperwork mistakes to allow a sick bastard like Devin P. Kelley to attain them. REALLY?
