Baltimore City Proper’s Murder Epidemic is Spreading to Baltimore County

Published

on

According to a new report from The Baltimore Sun, Baltimore city proper’s murder crisis is now expanding into Baltimore County.

In 2019, 50 homicides were recorded in Baltimore county. These numbers surpassed the previous high of 43 homicides in 1992 during the crack epidemic.

Additionally, the 2019 homicides represent an 85 percent increase over the previous year, when 27 homicides were registered in the county.

Before 2019, Baltimore County homicides tended to fluctuate in the low 20s. Homicides in the county started to increase by a significant amount in the wake of the 2015 Baltimore Riots.

Police also recorded 54 nonfatal shootings in Baltimore County in 2019 and 56 in 2019.

Back in late September, a mass stabbing took place at a high-end shopping center in Hunt Valley, where four people were stabbed. Police eventually killed the assailant.

The rise in homicides and violent crime in the county is largely because of the murder epidemic taking place in the city. Violent crime is now spreading out and spilling over to the communities five to ten miles from city limits.

In 2019, Baltimore recorded 348 deaths and a per capita homicide rate of 57 per 100,000 — one of the highest murder rates in America.

“Any homicide is completely unacceptable to me and I’m devastated for every single family that lost a loved one to a murder in Baltimore County this past year,” Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski Jr. said, pinning the blame on domestic violence and drug-related crimes for sparking the wave of deaths in 2019.

Olszewski stated to “keep things in context,” the county is still “a safe place to live, work and raise a family.”

He continued, “any loss of life is one too many, and any increase in our rate is deeply concerning.”

Baltimore city proper’s murder epidemic is spreading, now spilling over into the county.  This has contributed to record numbers of homicides in the area.

The home of the great writer H.L. Mencken has now turned into a legitimate hellhole.

Most leftist critics will try to blame the guns on Baltimore’s violence. However, the state of Maryland has some of the toughest gun control in the nation.  The city’s corruption goes beyond objects and is likely the result of other forms of public policy that have caused social disintegration.

Baltimore’s political leadership is clearly to blame for all of this mess.

Starbucks Barista FIRED After Refusing to Wear “Pride” T-Shirt for Religious Reasons, According to Lawsuit

She is a Christian and was apparently told by her manager that she didn’t have to wear it.

A former Starbucks barista is filing an unlawful discrimination lawsuit against the coffee giant, claiming they fired her for refusing to wear a “Pride” t-shirt that violated her Christian religious convictions.

Betsy Fresse started working as a barista in December 2015. After transferring to a Glen Ridge, New Jersey, store in early 2019, managers apparently “assured” her that her Christian faith wouldn’t be an issue.

Then in June 2019, she noticed a box of Pride shirts on a desk and asked if they’d make her wear one. Her store manager said she wouldn’t have to, but two months later she found herself out of a job after being terminated by a district manager.

A notice of separation claims that Fresse was fired for violating Starbucks’ “core values.” It specifically mentions an incident where she said her colleagues “need Jesus” when given the “Pride” shirt.

Starbucks maintains that “no part of our dress code requires partners to wear any approved items that they have not personally selected” and that Fresse’s claims are “without merit,” in a comment to the New York Post.

So Starbucks denies that she was fired for not wearing the shirt, yet their notice of separation appears to claim that they fired her for something she said about Jesus. Not a good look either way.

Fresse is seeking backpay, punitive damages, money to cover the cost of an attorney, and a permanent injunction that prevents Starbucks from “failing to accommodate […] sincerely held religious beliefs.”

Starbucks has long been a major player in the world of Woke Capital. Back in February Big League Politics reported on how the British branch of Starbucks was raising money for a pro-transgender lobbying group:

The U.K. branch of Starbucks is raising money to push for the chemical castration and surgical mutilation of children.

Nathanael Blake at The Federalist reported that the multinational titan is selling special mermaid-shaped cookies to help the pro-transgender lobbying group Mermaids. Curiously, the group’s founder took her underage son to Thailand to undergo a castration procedure.

Blake correctly observed “That Starbucks is supporting this group illustrates how thoroughly radicals have conquered both the LGBT movement and corporate culture.”

He also called attention to how “In a few years the fight has shifted from government recognition of same-sex relationships as legal marriages to mastectomies, sterilization, and castration for children.”

Here’s hoping that Betsy Fresse is successful in her lawsuit.
