Baltimore Mayor Replaces City Police Commissioner Kevin Davis

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh has fired Commissioner Kevin Davis as head of the city’s police force, she announced Friday morning.

Deputy Commissioner Darryl D. DeSousa, 53, will replace Commissioner Kevin Davis, becoming the department’s 40th commissioner.

Following appropriate approvals, his appointment as Commissioner will be made permanent, the mayor says.

“As I have made clear, reducing violence and restoring the confidence of our citizens in their police officers is my highest priority,” Mayor Pugh said in a statement.

Deadly violent crime has been on the rise in Baltimore since Freddie Gray’s 2015 death. There were 211 homicides in 2014, compared with 342 in 2015, 318 in 2016 and 343 in 2017.

“The fact is, we are not achieving the pace of progress that our residents have every right to expect in the weeks since we ended what was nearly a record year for homicides in the City of Baltimore,” Pugh continued in her statement.


Publishers Notes: They keep firing the police commissioner........same result with a new commissioner.

Insanity...doing the same thing hoping for different results. Perhaps a conservative would come up with the right solution.

This Pugh clown is beyond belief. As much as an ignoramus as blake, omalley and the rest of the losers going back decades now. It's not that the ghetto dwellers don't have confidence it's that they are born to be thugs and use any excuse they can for being the dregs of society. The only thing that is going to reduce crime is for them to start acting like civilized human beings-starting with being a real family and not just a bunch of baby machines, start valuing honesty and also life.

Let all the cops quit and let the thugs run wild. Let the Mayor handle crime first hand
