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.

Trouble in Paradise: Establishment Democrats Working to Eliminate AOC’s House Seat
According to an article from Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett, Democrat leadership is making an effort eliminate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s house seat.
Elected in 2018, in New York’s 14th congressional district, AOC has become the face of a new generation of Democrat radicals.
Jarret noted however that AOC’s extreme politics is creating a “divide amongst her own party, even with the head honcho herself, Nancy Pelosi.”
From radical open borders policies to Medicare for All, AOC is pushing the legislative envelope. She has also set up a PAC “Courage to Change” that is currently funding seven House candidates. On Twitter, AOC declared, “it’s time to elect a progressive majority in Congress accountable to strong, grassroots movements that push support for issues like Medicare for All, a Green New Deal, racial justice, & more.”
However, The NY Post noted that Democrat leadership are making efforts to derail her hype train. In the article, the Post noted that AOC “may not last in Congress.” The freshman congresswoman is “Already in hot water for refusing to pay dues to her caucus’ fundraising arm, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, she’s now devoting her resources instead to defeating Democrats.”
The Post concluded, “Don’t be surprised when the established Democrats who’ll control redistricting after the 2020 Census does their best to eliminate her seat.”
This recent struggle shows how the culturally radical wing of the Democrat Party is starting to butt heads with the establishment gatekeepers.
This is indicative of a cultural and political realignment where old school Democrats are likely to be eaten alive their radical offspring thanks to demographic shift.
