Baltimore records 300th homicide of the year


Recommended Posts

Sunday hit 301! Congrats

 

 

 

Baltimore has recorded its 300th homicide of the year.

 

Police Commissioner Kevin Davis said in a statement Saturday evening that it was a "sad homicide milestone." He said that "it's important to pause and vow to continue our collective fight to find a better path forward."

 

The 300th victim was a 27-year-old man who was stabbed multiple times Saturday and later died. It's the first time since 1999 that the city has recorded 300 homicides. In 2014, the city saw 211 killings for the year. Baltimore crossed the 200 death mark in August.

 

"This challenging moment shall pass if we reject blame and embrace the hope, dreams, and promise of a great American city. Baltimore will win again, 2015 will not define us, and the nation will once again see our City for the determination that has long defined us," Davis said.

 

The homicide rate in Baltimore began to skyrocket in May following a period of civil unrest after the death of Freddie Gray, a black man who died from injuries suffered in police custody. The city saw 42 homicides in that month. There was a brief dip in June, with 29 killings, however the number shot up again in July, when the city recorded 45 homicides. It was the single bloodiest month since 1972.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I thought it was pretty much the entire job of the Police Commissioner to determine blame?  If you don't do that, what the hell do you do?

That's the real tragedy, mostly totally innocent victims, whatever color they are.   

 

Not many people care when thugs take out other thugs, but they don't aim that well.

I find it extremely difficult to believe that a large portion of the murdered were "totally innocent" victims.

 

Usually it's gangs related, theft related, drug related or just two idiots fighting over a freaking street corners.

 

Blame the residents, not the police. The police only come after the shooting.

Of course they're innocent, just ask them?  

 

:)

The stuff that usually gets media coverage is when they spray the street and kill some kid on the way home from school.

They have also made the police powerless because of the threats of Losing your Job or being sued.  It is a said state of affairs when the police are unable to complete their jobs.  Yes this is mostly black on black crime. Remember Black Live only matter when killed by whites or police.  The community needs to stand up for all lives matter and put an end to the violence.  Unless the community is infuriated by this then nothing will never change.  It is upsetting to me when I see so many children on that list and mothers/fathers that will not be around to support that child's growth.

I couldn't have said it better myself Marine.

There must be a news black out, I have not heard about any murders there since the evil police murdered that poor Freddie Gray.

One thug shot by the police stimulates marches, riots, burning and looting.   Three-hundred killed by their own goes unnoticed by the ones who claim 'black lives matter'.   I don't believe them anymore.
