  • Baltimore mayor has new idea after Nobody Kill Anyone weekend is an epic fail.

    Pugh’s plan aims to reverse this year’s spike in violent crime in the city, which has suffered 212 murders in 219 days. The mayor tapped Baltimore police chief of staff Drew Vetter to head the criminal justice office, the Baltimore Sun reported Wednesday. Her policy plan addresses three areas she believes are the root cause of violent crime: poorly trained police, poor drug policy, and an under-educated populace.

    The city recently finished a consent decree with the Department of Justice. They decided to completely overhaul the city’s police department under oversight from a judge-appointed monitor. Pugh also wants to invest in training police to focus on increasing clearance rates.

    Pugh’s plan also addresses a criminal justice reform topic that has enjoyed wide bipartisan support across the country, which is lowering sentences for drug crimes. Her plan calls for increased investment in drug treatment programs and other penal alternatives to prisons, WBAL reported.

    She also wants narcan, an overdose reversal drug, to be more accessible in the city.

    Her final major reform is to make Baltimore’s community colleges offer a free two-year program to seniors graduating from local high schools, claiming violent crime is often caused by a lack of opportunity.

    I don't know how this city still has a police department. I'm sure all was fine until the police just ruined everything and started sending dealers to prison.

    I'm sure her plan will be totally successful.

      "Her policy plan addresses three areas she believes are the root cause of violent crime: poorly trained police, poor drug policy, and an under-educated populace."

      Notice that personal responsibility has no part in this. It must always be a top-down government solution. And it must FEEL good (don't worry about whether it DOES good).

      I'm not a criminologist, but my guess is, Baltimore's ridiculous level of violence is caused by a small segment of young black men. The multi-stage process that makes them so hyper-violent is described in the 10-minute video below (the same applies to Washington D.C., Detroit, St Louis, Newark, Chicago, Milwaukee, Atlanta). To reverse the violence, the entire culture must change, must move back towards personal responsibility.

                If they want to make a difference start having patrol officers enforcing and focusing on the minor crimes and ordinances. Lock up drug users and dealers .

                It may take a little time to see a noticable difference. At first it may appear it's not working but if they stick with it will work.

                    Oh Jesus Christ.

                    ... It's never good to see violent crime increase, but I do enjoy watching these idiots continue to be bewildered that their moronic approach to violent crime has had negative effects while the 95% who unfortunately don't make the decisions predicted it from day one.

                      But if that means that more blacks & Hispanics are caught, isn't that where a politically correct police administrator steps in and says something like: "you can't have any kind of policing where one group is arrested more than any other group" (even if that group has higher crime stats)?

                        A criminal is a criminal. I don't care what skin pigmentation they are and neither should an administrator if they really care for the good people in their city.

                          But there's the rub, do they care.
