Easter weekend violence spikes in Baltimore

76 posts in this topic

The 100 blk of N. Luzerne Ave. I wanted to live close to the park. It was a really nice place but the the next few blocks north was hell and the parking was horrible. I usually had to park on Fairmount ave. That's where the majority of my car break ins would occur. Police would tell me that it was the juveniles from the neighborhood that were doing all the larceny from autos. After my house got broken into, I packed up and left. 

 

That's a fringe area and I would have left too.

Seems to be repeat offenders in the city. Catch. Release. Repeat.

Where is governor Hogan in all of this? Black people killing blacks. Opiates killing white folks in record numbers.

 

Other than a TV commercial about the dangers of opiates, what else has he done to attempt to fix either of these major problems?

Start a separate thread on it or contact the governor and ask him.

You voted for him so he could help with our crime problem. Thought you would know what he has done. Sorry for asking, but I know the answer.

What do you want him to do?  Baltimore police now are under the be nice policy, so can't expect much from them. 

As for opiates, lots of ideas out there.  Few, if any solutions.  Seems the current mindset is forced rehab.  That will solve nothing. 

I doubt anything other than attempting to curtail supply will help.

That could help in several areas.

Read 'em and weep, my friend.

Over 4,000 people shot and killed in this country so far this year.

 

Baltimore is not alone. Nothing is working anywhere, nor will it, no matter what the politicians you voted for promised us.  Part of daily life here in the good ole USA.

 

Hmmmm seems they convincingly buried or didn't report the number of gang bang retaliatory hits were in that number. To me the only ONLY number that matters was the unintentional shooting 615.

 

All the remainder were somehow linked with crime. Now last time I looked a gun can't walk down the street and fire itself.

 

Instead of focusing on guns how about focusing on the fruit loops/bad guys that use them?

Blaming Governor Hogan for Baltimore's problems that have been decades in the making is typical thinking of someone who is completely politically biased to the point where they are blind to the truth.

 

It's no different than trying to share the blame for all deaths and accidents caused by carjackers, car thieves, and drunk drivers by placing it on all drivers who obey the law.

It's a general website showing how bad and widespread gun violence is in our country.

 

A gun can't walk down the street and fire itself, nor can bad guys walk into a store and buy one, yet they have no trouble obtaining many. Weird, huh?

Who blamed Governor Hogan? Asking what he is doing about it is blaming him for the problem? Who knew?

Ahhhh.... he is the Governor not the Mayor. Knowing you if he DID step in and did something you would be all bat-shxt crazy because he is interfering and violating civil rights of the fine upstanding populace of BC. :rolleyes:

 

And don't say you wouldn't...your track record here proves otherwise.

 

Go complain to or about the gooberment in BC and do something productive.

No. Criminals do what criminals do. They break into things, steal, commit crimes like theft, murder, etc. Probably helps in many cases to know where your kids are too and what they're up to at night when they should be at home.

 

That's how it works where I live with most people I know.

Excellent analogy. Same thing applies about firearms. Don't fix the bad guys fix the good guys.

Too easy for folks to get guns, opiates.

 

Both lead to high number of deaths in this country.

 

Need to cut the supply.

We need to put gang bangers etc. in jail and not let them out. We need treatment for those with drug issues AND need to take the profit out of illegal drug sales.

 

Fewer buyers, fewer sales, make certain drugs legal and controlled but available,  fewer sales. Fewer sales, less profit.... less profit fewer sellers, fewer sellers then less gun activity.

 

Well maybe not so much the last. As the cash drug sale pool is reduced I am SURE the turf wars will crank up for a time...then go down hill ....due to attrition. And would that be a bad thing?

 

There are solutions....but the BC gooberment has to stop d'n around and find a set. AS does the rest of so called leadership in the USA.

Keeping violent criminals behind bars would be a start.

Closing the repeat offender pipeline would be a heap of help.

Well, when you have something to compare it to, odds are the latter is a much-preferred choice.

No need to call Baltimore County. I think you are the only person I've ever heard of that gets called every 3 years.I've lived in the county all my life, 50+ years, know and work with many county residents, don't think I know of anyone that has served on jury duty more than 2-3 times, most, like me, just once. I vote in every election, so they know how to get a hold of me.

.

We are in Harford County, but I expect it's about the same. In the 10+ years since we became Maryland citizens, my wife has been called 3 times, and me only once. Random is sometimes not divided equally.
