For many Americans living in urban centers, horrific acts of violence have become the new normal.
This is especially true if you live in a city that made efforts to defund the police or made efforts to overhaul the current bail system.
Now one east coast city in particular, has become an all-out war zone and residents are beginning to become fed up with the constant and senseless violence.
Without a doubt, the one east coast city that has gained a reputation for its depravity and violence is Baltimore.
At one time, Baltimore was a picturesque waterfront town that had everything to offer – history, shopping, sports, amazing bars, and plenty of spots to relax.
That is certainly not the case anymore for the most part.
In recent years, Baltimore has been absorbed by violent crime, even in parts of the city that are considered to be “nice.”
To make matters worse, every time there is a nationwide racial “reckoning,” the city and the lunatics running it, overcompensate by passing ridiculous laws that do nothing but embolden criminals.
Why would you care about committing a crime if you know you will likely walk away without any serious punishment?
However, at long last, some concerned citizens are finally taking a stand after being fed up over the constant stream of deaths and violence impacting their communities.
Just this past Friday, in the early morning hours, at least 3 people were shot dead in Baltimore and 6 others were injured.
This crime wave prompted the Baltimore Police Commissioner to speak out.
Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison claimed “This continued level of violence is both frustrating and disheartening to all of us working to reduce crime and keep residents safe”.
According to Baltimore City Police data, shooting deaths are up significantly from last year.
In 2021, at this time, there were 65 shooting deaths and already this year that number is at a shocking 76 deaths.
And according to the same set of data, non-deadly shootings are up by an average of 40 percent.
Local officials have come out claiming that they are absolutely shocked by this crime increase, and their constituents are scratching their heads as to what could be to blame for this spike in violent crime.
The solution is plain and simple.
Stop electing radical leftists who would rather fund worthless social justice projects than fund cops whose job it is to keep your city safe.
This ought to be basic common sense, but clearly, common sense is not so common these days.
