The City of Baltimore has reached new levels of murder incorporated.

Seems the crime waves are worse than ever.

All following the "incidents" a few months ago, along with the "resignation" of Police Commissioner Anthony Batts in early July.

Looks like it's time for that Federal intervention that the Mayor is part of.

Very disturbing.

What's wrong with the big cities lately?


Baltimore Killings Soar To A Level Unseen In 43 Years


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.

They should just impose some strict gun laws.

That'll solve everything.

I just answered this in another thread here I'll copy paste it since it's relevant in both threads.

These are just examples of a growing trend of what we think of one another now and how we treat each other on a cultural level.

Think these mentalities are limited to police officers?

What about the 911 caller? "I don't have to put up with this"

How about people on ATS?

"These losers who provide me with services I enjoy regularly Aren't worth any money because I see their skills as useful, even though I still love having these services available."

How about when your driving down the road and some asshole has to ride you for two miles to a prove a point that you weren't driving fast enough for their tastes?

Seems to me like the problem is bigger than police.

I don't know what the real reasons may or may not be.

But the more I hang out on ATS the more I'm starting to think it might have something to do with how much ya'll hate each other.

Black lives matter, no justice no peace.........

Who wants to get together and protest in the gang areas so we can have our voices heard.......

Surely black on black violence counts right? Black lives?

Yes.

Because we all hate each other In every city, in every town, we are shooting each other and stabbing each other and we are trying to kill each other in every town in America.

You nailed it.

I have to wonder though is it possible that these statistics are skewed ?...i could be way left of field here but i get the impression there is a fair amount of Americans who will not leave the house without being armed,which really does not add up if violent crime is going down ...

Maybe violent crime is down because more Americans are arming themselves.

No justice, no peace.

From what I am reading, the prosecutor of Baltimore
is prosecuting police quickly and efficiently
but is not prosecuting the people who want peace.

So it appears the peace officers
have stopped persecuting
the people who demanded peace.

The people who rioted got what they wanted
the police are leaving them in peace
and not arresting them and the prosecutor
is not prosecuting them

(A) The number of physicians in the U.S. is 700,000.


(B) "Accidental" deaths caused by Physicians per year are 120,000.


(C) "Accidental" deaths per physician is 0.171

Statistics courtesy of U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services.
_______________________________________________



Guns



(A) The number of gun owners in the U.S. is 80,000,000. (Yes, that's 80 million)


(B) The number of "accidental" gun deaths per year, all age groups, is 1,500.


(C) The number of "accidental" deaths per gun owner is .0000188



Statistics courtesy of FBI
_______________________________________________



So, statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners. Remember, 'Guns don't kill people, doctors do.'

________________________________



FACT: NOT EVERYONE HAS A GUN, BUT Almost everyone has at least one doctor. This means you are over 9,000 times more likely to be killed by a doctor as by a gun owner !!!

________________________________



Please alert your friends to this alarming threat. We must ban doctors before this gets completely out of hand !!!!!

________________________________



Out of concern for the public at large, We withheld the statistics on Lawyers

for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention.

Exactly!!!

Everyone always follows the law to the letter.

They should just pass draconian gun laws like Chicago or Detroit or California.

Those places are the safest cities in the country.

Black lives only matter if a white guy or a cop is the shooter.

The rest of the times a black person gets shot don't count.

At least that is how it seems to me.
