    Out Of Control: Baltimore On The Verge Of Hitting Homicides Record

    Out Of Control: Baltimore On The Verge Of Hitting Homicides Record



    Baltimore struggles to curb violent crime as the city's total homicides are expected to breach 300 in the coming days.

    Baltimore is on the verge of implosion. The city is an opioid hell-hole that has the most extensive wealth inequality in the country. Its millennial base is fleeing the city, headed to the suburbs to escape the out of control murders.



    Baltimore struggles to curb violent crime as the city's total homicides are expected to breach 300 in the coming days.




    As of Tuesday, there have been 297 murders this year, said The Baltimore Sun.
    The city had fewer than 300 homicides per year from 2000 to 2014.
    However, the number of murders climbed in 2015 to 342, amid the 2015 Baltimore Riots, which civil unrest destroyed 285 to 350 businesses, 150 vehicle fires, 60 structure fires, and 27 drugstores looted.
    The out of control homicides points to the need for more tools in the approach to curbing violent crime.



    Mayor Catherine Pugh strengthened the city's safe streets program, in which reformed criminals act as intermediaries in disputes to prevent widespread violence.
    “What we’re experiencing on the streets of our city is about territorializing different parts of the city: if I’m going to sell drugs over here then you can’t come over here. If you come over here I’m going to shoot you here and then the next thing you know my sister my daughter my father my mother,” said Mayor Pugh. “Somebody gets caught up in the crossfire.”
    The mayor has repeatedly said in 2018 that crime is down. Meanwhile, the total number of murders are about to breach 300 - near record levels (342 homicides in 2017).
    “We’ve got to teach folks that life is valuable. These folks don’t get up off the ground and get to live another day or to have another conversation with their daughter their father their mother their sister their cousin – they don’t get to do that,” Pugh said.
    Recent crime statistics published by the FBI placed Baltimore's homicide rate last year well above trend of any other large American city, making it an anomaly in the national crime landscape for US cities with populations over 500,000 people.
    The 342 homicides last year resulted in the highest homicide rate in the country (56 per 100,000 people), according to the FBI.
    As the next economic downturn is immient, police chiefs not just in Baltimore, but the rest of the country are worrying that the next recession could fuel a crime wave that could be overwhelming.

    Baltimore: "Fires And Explosions Turned A Quiet Neighborhood Into A War Zone"



    "Somebody apparently took an accelerant and put it on a number of cars"

    Across Baltimore, news of explosions Friday morning reminded everyone that chaos from the 2015 Baltimore Riots has never left.
    Police said a warrant had been issued for the arrest of a young woman in connection with the firebombing of multiple vehicles.
    Lakia Letterlough, 25, is described as 5-feet-4-inches tall and 145 pounds with black hair and brown eyes, said the Baltimore Brew. Letterlough is wanted in connection with a series of vehicle fires.

    "Somebody apparently took an accelerant and put it on a number of cars — we believe seven at this point," Interim Police Commissioner Gary Tuggle said in an afternoon Friday press conference.
    CARS SET ON FIRE IN MOUNT VERNON: Baltimore Police are trying to figure out who set 10 cars on fire in Mount Vernon early this morning, causing some of them to explode.

    Responding to the firebombed vehicles in his district, Councilman Eric T. Costello posted information about the event on social media








    “Early this morning [Friday] around 3 am in Mount Vernon, there were six vehicles lit on fire, centering around the North Charles St. corridor, near Eager Street,” he wrote. “This led to 3 other vehicles catching fire.”
    "For neighborhood residents, the fires and explosions sent a shower of window glass onto sidewalks at about 3 a.m. turned their relatively quiet neighborhood into something resembling a war zone," said the Brew.
    According to Costello, the first “event” involved a car on “North Charles Street @ Penn Station – 1 vehicle."
    The remaining events, he said, were as followed:
    • 1700 block of St Paul St – 1 vehicle
    • Unit block of E Lanvale St – 1 vehicle
    • 1000 block of N Charles St – 1 vehicle, 2 incidental vehicles
    • 1000 block of St Paul St – 1 vehicle
    • Unit block of E Eager St – 1 vehicle, 2 incidental vehicles
    Along with photos and videos on Twitter of the burned-out vehicles, the Mount Vernon-Belvedere Association took to social media to encourage residents to contact police with any information or security camera footage.
    “These criminal acts of vandalism are unacceptable and horrendous,” association leaders said on Facebook.
    The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) was called in to assist the Baltimore Police Department in the probe.
    Investigators said it does not look like the vehicles were explicitly targeted.
    "We believe those were random acts of violence," Tuggle said.
    However, we disagree with Tuggle's statement that it was a "random act of violence."
    Baltimore is the epicenter for economic inequality in the US. Black residents make up 63% of Baltimore’s population and do worse than the African American national average on nearly every metric.
    Almost 1/3 of the households of color have a negative net worth in the city. So, when a young African American from an impoverished part of town firebombs a bunch of cars in Mount Vernon, a historical and wealthy neighborhood in the city, we should understand that wealth inequality, already at extremes, is leading to social destabilization.
    Baltimore is imploding from within; it will get a lot worse in the next recession.
