Murders in Baltimore are up 100% since last year. Arrests are down 50%. A total of 29 people were shot, including nine who died over Memorial Day Weekend. Police officers are making about 45% fewer arrests than comparable times in previous years.
This is Baltimore’s deadliest weekend since 1999.
Liberals excel at creating issues that stoke racial anger. The consequences of this deliberate Balkanization are:
- Government is given more power by citizens.
- Government bureaucracies replace the nuclear family.
- These citizens continue their downward economic and social spiral. Because the government (either federal or local) to whom they have surrendered control of their lives, continues to enforce the very policies that destroyed the nuclear family, thus creating crime-infested black ghettos.
Baltimore is a petri dish of liberal governance.
Charm City has been under the thumb of the Democrat party for 50 years. The Democrats control every aspect of the Baltimore power structure as surely as the Soviet politburo ruled Communist Russia. And the results are just as predictable. Corruption in city government is the norm. Nepotism among the Baltimore ruling elite recalls the inbreds of the royal families of the Arab Muslim Gulf States.
And now, in the aftermath of the Baltimore riots, with the vilification and persecution of the Baltimore police by race hustlers who are city officials, the Baltimore police are giving the streets back to the monsters.
Who can blame them?
