GRIM MILESTONE: More than 50 People Killed in Baltimore Within First Months of 2020

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.02.20

The city of Baltimore continued its struggle with unprecedented murder rates in the early months of 2020; reporting more than 50 homicides since January 1st, 2020.

“Only into the third month of the new year and more than 50 people have been killed in the Baltimore city area,” reports Fox News. “The Baltimore Police Department announced Sunday that 19-year-old Graham Blake was charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of a 26-year-old man on Friday, one of four shootings in Charm City Friday night that left two men dead and four injured.”

“At least 52 homicides were been reported throughout the city as of March 2, according to a tally by The Baltimore Sun. The major northeastern city in Maryland of more than 600,000 people is one of the most dangerous in America, according to the FBI,” adds Fox.

“This city was never like this, even when it was at its worst,” activist Tyree Moorehead told FOX45 on Sunday. “That’s scary because there’s people whose family members haven’t been shot yet that have a bullet with their name on it and don’t even know it.”

You have a whole host of people who are feeling like they’re afraid,” Rev. Alvin Hathaway told FOX45. “This is red flag time. We’ve got to call all hands on deck and pull the city together.”

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.”
