According to AWR Hawkins, 348 homicides took place in Baltimore in 2019.
The police in this period only made 89 arrests.
Per a Baltimore Sun report, a similar ratio of homicides to arrests or to cases that were resolved has stayed more or less at low rates as far back as 2015. It notes, “From 2015 to 2019, a stunning 1,660 people were killed in Baltimore. Just 654 cases were solved, a five-year clearance rate of less than 40%.”
Put simply, law enforcement got to the bottom of four out of ten Baltimore homicides annually for the aforementioned, four-year period.
In 2019, 83 out of the 89 arrests made resulted in convictions.
The Sun alluded to 2014, pointing out that Baltimore “homicide detectives were taking the lead on an average of four new homicide cases per year, and had an average individual clearance rate of 46%.” However, in 2015 “they were handling eight new cases each — and their average clearance rate had dropped to 22%.”
Researchers who investigated Baltimore Police Department’s homicide division in 2016 “found no clear policies and procedures for conducting investigations.”
They also found out that “detectives did not get careful supervision to ensure critical investigative steps were being completed in every case.”
Breitbart News covered a story about 12 individuals being shot in Baltimore on January 11, 2020, alone. Five of them ended up succumbing to the gunshot wounds.
For those with short-term memory, Baltimore Mayor Jack Young was imploring residents to quit shooting each other so that more hospital beds could be available for people suffering from the Wuhan virus.
Baltimore is a failed city with incredibly corrupt and incompetent political leadership.
It doesn’t help that it is situated in a rabidly anti-gun state like Maryland — the state is ranked in 44th place according to Guns & Ammo magazine.
To say that Baltimore needs a political exorcism is an understatement.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.
— SBC Executive Committee (@SBCExecComm) September 17, 2020
But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
