A little spilled milk, or, what's a few dead bodies among friends?

From Second City Cop, August 27th

  • In recent years, Baltimore's homicide rate has spiked dramatically, up 50% from just six years ago. The primary reason the city is suffering the alarming increase in crime is on full display in an interview published by the Baltimore Sun this week.

    In a rather remarkable admission, Baltimore's progressive law enforcement leaders, State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby (of Freddie Gray trial infamy) and Police Commissioner Kevin Davis, admitted to the paper that the skyrocketing homicide rate — averaging over 300 murders a year, up from less than 200 murders in 2011 — was directly linked to disavowing the more stringent policing policies of the past. While those more "heavy-handed" policies have clearly proven to work, Mosby and Davis made clear in the interview that they will not let proven success get in the way of their perceived "progress."

Progress? Here it is in their own words:

  • Baltimore’s top law enforcement leaders say they are working closely together to fight crime — but the community should not expect a turnaround soon. State’s Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby and Police Commissioner Kevin Davis, in an exclusive joint interview with The Baltimore Sun, say they are overseeing crime-fighting in a different climate than six years ago, when the city experienced fewer than 200 homicides for the first time in decades. Both officials claimed those past gains were achieved using heavy-handed tactics that have been disavowed.

    “There was a price to pay for” the drop below 200 homicides, a price “that manifested itself in April and May of 2015,” Davis said, referring to the uprising following the death of Freddie Gray. “I think the long view is that doing it the right way is doing it the hard way, and I think most Baltimoreans realize that the way forward is not always going to be easy.” Mosby agreed. “People want to look for an overnight solution, but a lot of what has gotten us to this place didn’t happen overnight.”

So the road to Hell is paved with dead minorities, for the greater good you know.
