Hundreds of repeat offenders off the streets due to crime initiative, leaders say

BALTIMORE — Governor Larry Hogan said that hundreds of Baltimore City's most violent offenders have been arrested thanks to a recent law enforcement initiative.

Operation Seven Sentries was conducted over the past month and focused on finding violent repeat offenders who have evaded prison.

"Make no mistake about it -- we will find you, we will arrest you and we will prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law," Hogan said.

Hogan said successful results from the Joint Law Enforcement Violent Crime Initiative are just the beginning.

The Seven Sentries Operation included nearly 500 federal, state and local law enforcement officers and focused on reducing crime by getting criminals with open warrants off the streets of Baltimore City.

The operation, conducted from Jan. 16 to Feb. 15., zeroed in on wanted individuals who were known gang members, sex offenders who failed to register, felons with violent criminal records and individuals who have warrants related to the sale or possession of drugs.

BS! I know and you know they have skipped arresting the biggest bunch of repeat offenders, Drunk Drivers! How many times do we see they have 4, 5, 8 DUI offences! These killers need to be locked up!

Yeah, but the question is...did you keep them over a the usual cpl hours before they're turned back on the street? Or do you need additional excuses to violate the rights of the law abiding citizens?

And then they were released on unsecured bond or recog, because they can't afford to pay one.

One time I visited court and sat in back of Judge Wade"s courtroom. Talk about repeat offenders! The Judge actually knew many of the black young men that came before him.
He talked about their last time in front of him, their long lists of convictions, the deals the lawyers had made on their behalf, and about how they were supposed to change. What a laugh!
One clown was there for his 11th. shoplifting arrest!
Yup, "Correction System" don't correct nothing!

Make these thugs pick up trash off the street. Clean public toliet. Dig ditches. Put chains around their ankles and make them work.
