Baltimore Residents Blame Homicide Increase On Lack of Police Presence



Baltimore just set a brand new high in homicides there. They had a surge of killings in 2017. 343 people were murdered, which brings the annual homicide rate to their highest ever. That’s roughly 56 killings per 100,000 people. Authorities are blaming everything and everyone, except those who are really responsible here. People are killing for drugs, money, revenge or just for the hell of it. They blame guns, opioids, lack of opportunity and yes, a reduced police presence. For three years since Freddie Gray’s death, Black Lives Matter has demanded that police get out of their neighborhoods. Now look at them.

Police in Baltimore are hesitant to do their jobs there anymore. They are afraid of being prosecuted like the six cops were after Freddie Gray died. They were all acquitted, no thanks to the district attorney, who was a racist and a cop-hater herself. But even so, their lives were ruined. So, out of an abundance of caution, many officers are not going into black neighborhoods unless they have to and they are playing it very careful. That’s not how it should be. But they’ve been bullied into that stance. BLM demanded this and they got it – now they are whining over the increased murder rate. I’m so shocked.

The death of Freddie Gray three years ago spurred the worst rioting seen in Baltimore in decades. Black Lives Matter, the New Black Panthers and the Nation of Islam stepped into the game egging on even more riots and unrest. Gray died in police custody in the back of a van. Since those riots, the morale of the police in Baltimore has plummeted. Marxists, progressives, racists and activists in the government in Baltimore then began planning a lighter police footprint in response to complaints of residents and protest leaders. Instead of following in the footsteps of Rudy Giuliani, they caved to the criminals.

First they persecuted innocent police officers. Then they forced them out of the neighborhoods where the most crime was. Now, black leaders have the unmitigated gall to blame the police for the spiraling murder rate. They created this scenario… BLM owns this, not the police. They say the police have put them in danger. These people did that to themselves. Just listen to the warped whinging here. The Rev. Kinji Scott, a Baltimore activist, is blaming city hall for leaving the neighborhoods unprotected. “We wanted the police there,” Scott insisted. “We wanted them engaged in the community. We didn’t want them beating the hell out of us, we didn’t want that.” That’s not what was happening and he knows it.

I’m having real trouble feeling sorry for these jerks. Scott and others are now pressuring the city to bring police back in as a deterrent to the soaring crime rate. So, now you want them back? You realize that officers will die now trying to quell the killing spree. And they won’t be grateful in the least when it happens. Even though BLM screamed that the police were the problem all along, activists are now saying they never wanted the police out of their neighborhoods. What liars. And of course they would crawl to NPR to cry foul and blame others. In an interview with NPR, Scott claims only the progressive activists wanted cops to be eliminated.

Of course Scott wasn’t done blaming either… he blamed the city for not fostering a community atmosphere between police and the neighborhoods. What? You mean the riots didn’t do that? Go figure. Obama helped make police the enemy to these people and he dug up racism every chance he got. He didn’t help police and communities come together and frankly that’s not what Black Lives Matter demanded. Well, they got what they wanted and now they are begging for the police to come back. They’ll go back because that’s their job, but the damage here is massive.

You were so busy blaming police officers instead of the criminals, you forgot who actually protected most of you. Fools. Remember the Baltimore protesters carrying signs that read “disarm the police,” or when they were wearing T-shirts promising to kill cops? I do. And I remember cops past and present that were and are killed simply for being police officers, many times by the likes of BLM. At the time all this happened, we warned what a disaster a pullback by the police would be. Well, here we are.
