The Crime Rate In Baltimore, Maryland

Baltimore, Maryland ranks as the 6th most dangerous city in the United States.   After Socialist rule for about 50 years and spending billions of dollars on the "war on poverty" in Baltimore, like many other big cities in our country, Baltimore is a mess.  The average crime rate in America, as a composite of crimes committed, is at 301.  With a population of about 600,000, which continues to decline, Baltimore is at 692, way above the national average.   Typically, there are about 225 murders each year in Baltimore, the majority of which relate to Black on Black crime.  That is an average of about 4 per week.  Many of these deaths tie to the drug trade in Baltimore, which is sizable. 

To put this in perspective, Greater Reno, where this Blogger lives, with a population of about 500,000, experiences about 7 murders a year.  Our crime rate as a composite of 266 is below the national average of 301.  While the spot where the riots took place in Baltimore is the epicenter of the drug trade in Baltimore, this Blogger would not have a clue where to buy drugs in Reno; though I am sure there is a place like in all cities. 

So while the rioting was going on in Baltimore over the death of Freddie Gray, a convicted drug pusher, during his arrest, the likelihood is that some other Black men were murdered in the month of April.  Yet no one is protesting those murders.  Matter of fact, about 130 Blacks are killed each year as a result of some interaction with the police.  Actually, many more Whites are killed by the police every year.  However, about 9,000 Blacks are murdered each year as a result of Black on Black crime.   While every life is precious and needless killings by anyone are horrible, it would seem that Black anger concerning the police is very misplaced.  The real problem in the inner cities of the United States is Black on Black crime, which is responsible for many of the police killings that do take place.  Without the police administering tough love in these cities, there would be even more murders. 

When Black Parents have "the talk" with their sons about fearing the police, they really should also be discussing fearing the Thugs and Drug Pushers in inner city Black America that are murdering thousands of Blacks each year.   Let's at least be honest about factual data so that we can deal with the problems we face in the United States.  50 years of Socialist Schemes, that were supposed to end poverty, have only made it worse.
