    Harrison’s plan is working great. Attrition…….who would have thought?

    1. Being the police commissioner of Baltimore City is a bad choice. Look at the past commissioners. It’s a trap. How do you fix Baltimore as a police commissioner? You can’t. Making threatening and grand statements like our new commissioner is a mistake but honestly he lost as soon as he accepted that job. In my opinion.

  2. How is the tourism business in baltimore going with the strict gun laws in place these days?

    1. NO tourist with an ounce of sense should step foot into Baltimore city if they value their life or their family’s! A stray bullet has NO conscience and the HOODRATS could care less! IT”S WAR ZONE and the HOODRATS own the neighborhoods!!

    2. Michael Rossi says:

      Keep voting democrat. They are afraid to tell the people the hard truth. Oh well Blame Trump.

  3. NO SURPRISE A CITY IN CRISIS AND DEMISE AT THE HANDS OF THE DEMOCRATS… Maybe Mayor Jack Young we need to dedicate another bathroom better yet let’s go to the ZOO YEAH that will fix the ENDLESS shootings and murders!! And also maybe a BIGGER salary for the city police commissioner OR maybe another billboard OH how about a POLICE BRASS walk in the neighborhoods for the cameras YEP that’s what need!! What a USELESS BUNCH!!! THANKS DEMOCRATS YOU DESTROYED OUR CITY!! AGAIN the HOODRATS are in full control and OWN this city and it’s streets!! The leadership of this city the worst in 50 years!!!!

  4. You can bet the first words and same old RHETORIC out of the police commissioner’s and MAYOR Jack Young’s mouth will be…”WE will not tolerate this type of behavior, it’s unacceptable” HELLO IT MEANS NOTHING COMING FROM THE BOTH YOU!! The bodies are STILL piling up!!! ZERO!! ZERO!! ZERO!! RESULTS!!!

    The only thing that will stop this type of violence is hard targeted police work. However, since the police in Baltimore have stopped working, which I don’t blame them, this is the end result. When you have a dysfunctional state’s attorney who thinks she is on a crusade to change the culture of BCPD this is the end product. Each year more and more of the tax paying residences are leaving and it’s only a matter of time before the city is totally broke. In 1970, Baltimore had almost one million people living it’s less then five hundred thousand and WE ALL KNOW WHY. Just like New York in the 70’s and 80’s the liberal democrats don’t know how to fix the problem and it will take change at the top to bring about major change.

    I always said that this city needs private contractors to do the policing . They are exempt from the states attorney. Why can’t neighborhood organizations just hire their own to protect. The city police can show up to do the paper work. That’s all they do now anyway. Plenty of x-vets would take up the task. It’s a war zone and should be treated as such. Grants from the Fed’s would help pay for it.

    Get all of the cops riding around on the beltway looking for speeders into West Baltimore to clean up the cesspool.

  8. It’s Monday morning anyone notice the EERIE SILENCE OUT OF CITY HALL?? Guess they are busy counting up the dead bodies!
