It seemed like everything was going to be great after Mosby told the cops to stop policing the city. After all, all the cops were doing was oppressing the innocent natives – systematically oppressing them – out of hate for the color of their skin.
But it turns out – and no one could have seen this coming – that when you remove policing from a majority Black city, they all start shooting each other.
Don’t let the racists convince you this situation is hilarious. You have to view this in the context of slavery 200 years ago, and then feel guilty about it.
Police say 28 people were shot, 9 of them killed over this weekend, adding to the record-breaking violence.
The shooting didn’t stop on Monday night after a 9-year-old boy and another man were both injured by gun fire in the 2900 block of Arunah Avenue. Police say the child was shot in the leg and another man suffered a graze wound to the head.
Councilmember Mary Pat Clarke links the violence to a city still reeling from weeks of unrest.
“It was an earthquake kind of time and i think we’re still dealing with the aftershock,” she says.
WJZ media partner The Baltimore Sun reports 35 people have been killed so far in May making it the deadliest month in Baltimore since December of 1999. Some say the 3-day surge of violence may be a sign of a police department stretched too thin.
“They’ve gone right from the troubles to this spike,” one resident said.
Since the beginning of the year, 108 people have died due to violence in the city.
So far none of the victims have been identified and no arrests have been made.
And they’ll have fun, fun, fun til big White daddy takes the EBT-bird away and puts them all on boats back to Africa.
