May saw a slow month for the buryin’ business, with May down by 12 compared to 2015. Overall, for the year, Baltimore has seen 110 murders in 152 days, also down by a dozen compared to the same period in 2015. Inclement weather could be one reason, since May was a bit cooler and wetter than usual.
On the other hand, there have been several comments that George Soros violence organizing groups, which have plagued Baltimore since Freddie Gray’s death, are out following Donald Trump from campaign stop to campaign stop to campaign stop. That is certainly plausible, and some of the photos of the faces at the campaign disruptions look quite familiar.
Well, we shall see whether or not Baltimore makes the “man for breakfast every day” they came so close to in 2015. They are not far behind, and a warm spell could easily erase the deficit.
