Baltimore City Police Beat / Indictments announced
MURDER USA Midnight beef turned to homicide
BALTIMORE, MD. — (Editor’s Note: From beef to slaying took but seconds as Baltimore’s murder rate soared over 150 with June just heating up in the race to catch up with Chicago’s murder rate. Why is Washington, D.C.’s murder rate dropping while Baltimore’s homicide levels are record setting? Part of the answer has to be the way the city’s pandering politicians have thrown the people of Baltimore under the bus following the Freddie Gray death in 2015 as they trashed the police and encouraged thugs to run wild.
Veteran police officers have retired en masse while Baltimore City States Attorney Marilyn Mosby’s effort to charge police officers were thrown out by the courts or later dropped.
The people of Baltimore apparently fall for the smoke and mirrors put on by the city’s Democrat politicians and there is no reason for anyone to expect anything but more murders.)
