Homicides In Baltimore Top 200, Expected To Break Record

A 23-year old man was killed Wednesday afternoon in a double shooting on Baltimore’s 1200 block of Greenmount Avenue topping the city’s 200th homicide. So far, 30 homicides have been reported for the month of July with the expectation of further acceleration into the latter summer months.

The Economist seems to think Baltimore “may see more than 400 murders this year”. This is based on their figures from Jan’17 through May’17 homicides extrapolated by summer seasonal trends. Nevertheless, this would indicate Baltimore is headed for a record breaking year in terms of homicide count

Well it sounds like Rahm Emmanuel forwarded his mayoral playbook to Baltimore; How to wipe out an inner city.
