Congrats demorat-run Baltimore, you did it! City breaks record for killings per capita in 2019

One day after I reported that Baltimore was nearing a record homicide rate, they achieved it!

WISHTV has the details:

“With just over 600,000 residents, the city hit a historically high homicide rate of about 57 per 100,000 people after recent relentless gunfire saw eight people shot — three fatally — in one day and nine others — one fatally — another day.

The new rate eclipses that of 1993, when the city had a record 353 killings but was much more populous before years of population exodus.

By contrast, New York City, with more than 8 million residents, had 306 homicides through Dec. 15.

The total is up from 309 in 2018 and matches the 342 killings tallied in 2017 and 2015, the year when the city’s homicide rate suddenly spiked.”

Read the whole story here.

The Baltimore Sun has more grim details:

A working mother gunned down in front of her children at an East Side deli. A man who succumbed to the gunshot wounds he suffered two weeks ago. A baby believed to be shaken to death. A man shot to death inside a car.

The four killings this week push the 2019 body count to match the second-most on record: 342 homicides.

Worse yet, the homicide rate for 2019 has already set a grim record of 57 killings per 100,000 people.

The anti-Second Amendment folks’ responses to this madness in a strict gun-controlled city?

Guess the situation in Baltimore doesn’t warrant a response from them since it doesn’t fit their narrative.

Yes, add my congrats too. Baltimore needs a true visionary like Lori Lightfoot because change is needed. The most effective change would be to bulldoze it into a landfill and start over

The problem when you bulldoze a shithole is that the problem moves elsewhere. Where my wife is from is a perfect example. It was a 1st ring suburb that is now a 1st rate ghetto in the making. We are glad she sold her house while it was still worth something.

I know. Where I live, Berkshires, they won’t let it deteriorate too much because they depend on summer people. But you don’t have to go far before you see formerly “nice” suburbs where every other house is boarded up or a crack house, populated by handout-dependent unskilled superfluous people lacking even the most basic standards of decency. The suburbs were originally places of white flight but we’re running out of places to flee to

Indeed we are running out of places, So. Florida and the wave of central American midgets that have inundated the area, unskilled, unable to speak the language are taking over little by little, hanging around corners and prostitutes soliciting. There will come a time that the US will degrade and we will become a mixture of third world country and no where to go, but I won’t be around, good luck to those that still have time to live it.
