BLAME GAME: Baltimore Mayor Says Leaders Not to Blame for Crime, Claims ‘I’m Not Committing Murders’

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.14.19

Baltimore Mayor Jack Young refused to condemn the city’s leadership for one of the highest homicide rates in the nation this week; saying “I’m not committing the murders; the police commissioner has not committed it.”

“I’m not committing the murders. The police commissioner has not committed it. The council’s not committing it. So how can you fault leadership?” Young told Fox Baltimore.

Young’s comments follow an op-ed from John Hoey -president of the Y in Central Maryland- that blamed city leadership for the out-of-control crime rate.

“They are the ones who most deserve answers and far more serious action than we have yet seen by our local elected officials,” he wrote. “This is not a message about political preferences. I have a great deal of respect for many of our hardworking elected officials. Rather, this is a plea to those in elected office, and those who seek to be, to acknowledge the crisis we are in and to focus on it like your hair’s on fire, because our city is, essentially on fire.”

BALTIMORE BACKLASH: Police Commissioner ‘Apologizes’ for ‘200 Years’ of Brutality

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.20.18

Baltimore’s Police Commissioner shocked local residents and the nation Thursday when he “apologized” for “200 years” of police brutality; sparking a fierce backlash from a region struggling to contain escalating gun violence.

Commissioner Darryl De Sousa addressed the crowd at a sold-out Hip Hop concert this week, asking the audience for just “20 seconds” to beg forgiveness for “all the things that the police have done.”

“I want to take about 20 seconds to apologize for all the things that the police have done dating back 200 years,” said De Sousa.

“Two hundred years ago, all the way to civil rights. All the way to the ’80s where crack was prevalent in the cities and it affected disproportionately African-American men. All the way to the ’90s. All the way to the 2000’s when we had zero tolerance,” he added.

The President of Baltimore’s Police Union slammed the Commissioner’s comments late Thursday night, saying it was not “appropriate.”

“I’m not sure that a blanket apology covering 200 years is appropriate. Law enforcement was created to protect and serve the citizenry despite race and that is what we strive to do, daily,” the union added.

Four teenage suspects were arrested after an unprecedented overnight manhunt in Baltimore Monday, with local officials confirming the young men were detained in connection with the murder of a police officer.

“An intense manhunt involving aircraft and trained dogs came to an end Tuesday after a female officer was killed in a Baltimore suburb and four teenage suspects who were involved in burglaries in the area were arrested in connection with the slaying, officials said,” writes Fox News.

Baltimore County Police confirmed the arrest on social media earlier Tuesday, adding “names and charges” will be released after initial court proceedings.

“Officers who have died at the hands of gunshots is up” said Baltimore County Police Chief Terrence Sheridan. “This is a bad time in the United States for law enforcement.”
