    When you have the activist AG going after innocent cops this is the outcome. The increase in crime all started with criminal Freddie Grey while the city’s government and AG sat by and let the criminals destroy at will. Nothing will change until Baltimore replaces their own local activist anti-law enforcement leaders with law-abiding leaders. But, the biggest problem right now is the AG’s leniency on criminals.
