For the third year in a row, Baltimore, Md., has had more than 300 murders, reaching a new record of murders per number of residents in 2017.

You don’t need cops in fancy neighborhoods.

I wonder why?

Weird, my neighborhood has no police presence, yet there never seems to be any murders.

But no community takes responsibility so blame the cops.

Well, when you voted in a Mayor with the IQ of dust and she publicly states that the police are killing black people, what would you expect?

People, let’s remember here that that the important objective has been attained. Police are no longer in Baltimore so Black people are safer.

The biggest mistake after the Baltimore riots was when the burned out businesses rebuilt. They should have just relocated instead. CVS has enough stores, no need to service those who hate you.

We have virtually no police presence in my neighborhood and also virtually no crime.

I think they have a different source of their crime.

My neighborhood too. I guess that approach isn’t working out too well in Baltimore. Any guess why? LOL.

Dallas is doubling down on her cunning plan.
The result is murder any mayhem daily in South Oakcliff but they can smoke all the pot they want and walk around with 4 Oz
