Two Fatally Shot During Baltimore’s ‘Nobody Kill Anybody for 72 Hours’ Ceasefire

Two homicides occurred in Baltimore on Saturday despite the city's 72-hour "ceasefire" initiative, a campaign promoted by local activists to stop violence and call for a murder-free weekend in the city.

Activist Erricka Bridgeford, 44, and other community leaders promoted the "Baltimore ceasefire," which began at midnight early Friday and continued through Sunday night, using the slogan, "Nobody kill anybody for 72 hours."

About 40 hours into the ceasefire, however, two men were shot and killed, the Baltimore Sun reported. The first victim of violence was a 24-year-old man who was fatally shot around 5 p.m. on Saturday. Just hours later, around 10 p.m., a 37-year-old-man was also shot and killed. Both victims were taken to the hospital and died there.

A third man, 22, was taken to the hospital after suffering a gunshot wound to the arm on Saturday afternoon, Fox45 reported.

Thugs can't follow directions to pour piss out of a boot if they were printed on the bottom of the heel!

Valiant effort by the activists but talk is cheap. The police have lost all of their ability to do their jobs over the Freddie Gray matter and the city is afraid of having to pay out boatloads of money for civil suits. Need to resurrect "stop and frisk" and other common sense actions and get off the political correctness nonsense. Look at statistics...people are packing illegally so get the guns out of their hands.

Even the thugs go on vacation. Given their work ethic they'll be back on the job quickly.

Baltimore politicians don't acknowledge a war in Baltimore, but call for a 72 hour "cease fire." WTH! I guess they are conceding that gun control laws don't work. Every shooting requires an ILLEGAL gun in Baltimore.
