Baltimore breaks city record for killings per capita in 2017

Sharing is Caring!

Baltimore has set a new per-capita homicide record as gunmen killed for drugs, cash, payback – or no apparent reason at all.
A surge of homicides in the starkly divided city resulted in 343 killings in 2017, bringing the annual homicide rate to its highest ever – roughly 56 killings per 100,000 people. Baltimore, which has shrunk over decades, currently has about 615,000 inhabitants.
“Not only is it disheartening, it’s painful,” Mayor Catherine Pugh told The Associated Press during the final days of 2017, her first year in office.
The main reasons are the subject of endless interpretation. Some attribute the increase to more illegal guns, the fallout of the opioid epidemic, or systemic failures like unequal justice and a scarcity of decent opportunities for many citizens. The tourism-focused Inner Harbor and prosperous neighborhoods such as Canton and Mount Vernon are a world away from large sections of the city hobbled by generational poverty.

America’s Urban War Zone: Baltimore Doubles Chicago’s Homicide Rate In 2017 (MSM silent as it destroys their gun-control narrative)
According to The Daily Caller, Baltimore‘s homicide rate is now doubled Chicago’s in 2017.
Essentially, residents in Baltimore are twice as likely to be shot than Chicagoans. As the battlefield continues to expand, President Trump has yet to mention the chaos in Baltimore just 38 miles North of the White House.
As The Daily Caller points out, the soaring violence in Baltimore is occurring in a much smaller city of 621,000, when compared to Chicago of 2,700,000.

  1. Can you all guess what race was killed and doing the killing…they eat there own and blame everyone else for there plight is your clue…

  2. America. The third world coming to a city near you. First we do it to the minorities, then when we see you’re okay with that and blame them for it we’re coming to you. Don’t get used to clean water, either. You’re not getting that much longer.

  3. Well what do you expect when they think that adding a few more basketball courts and a few youth centers will solve their problems? You get utter chaos with the negras shooting each other…..I say give em all guns and ample ammo and see who’s still here next year……..gun control does not work….. we need negra control instead….
