Since the riots of this spring, the homicide rate in Baltimore has skyrocketed to levels unseen in almost 50 years. Not since 1972 have so many murders occurred in the city.
This is what happens when cops are demonized by liberal media as racist authoritarians and the progressive mob is given rule of a city.
The Baltimore Sun reported:
City ties deadliest month with 45th homicide
Baltimore Detective Roderick Mitter was at his desk at the police station when he got a call from his mother telling him a family member had been shot.
Within minutes, the 10-year veteran was at Johns Hopkins Hospital, where his 18-year-old nephew, Jermaine Mitter, was pronounced dead Thursday.
“I was telling somebody yesterday, ‘You get numb to it. It’s just work,'” the detective said Friday of the violence he regularly sees on the job. But with family, he said, “It’s totally different. I wasn’t just Roderick the police officer. I was someone who lost someone.”
Jermaine Mitter was among 45 people killed in July, the deadliest month in the city in at least 45 years. July’s total surpassed the 42 homicides in May and tied the previous record monthly homicide count in August 1972, when the city had about 275,000 more residents.

This breakdown of law and order is sad and totally unnecessary.
