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.
Joe Biden Nominates Liberal Activist Neera Tanden as Director of Office of Management and Budget; “Zero Chance of Being Confirmed”
Tanden is a controversial Democrat.
Democratic candidate Joe Biden announced his nomination of Center for American Progress President and controversial Democrat Neera Tanden as Director of the Office of Management and Budget. Biden is yet to be certified as the rightful president-elect pending the outcome of litigation challenging the results in swing states, but this hasn’t prevented him from making personnel decisions.
Tanden, who is somewhat known as a Twitter personality, is a controversial figure in Democratic and progressive circles. She regularly used her position of influence in the Democratic establishment to attack Bernie Sanders during his 2016 and 2020 campaigns,
Tanden also became a target of ire for an incident in which she revealed the identity of an individual who was allegedly sexually harassed at the Center for American Progress.
However, it appears that Tanden’s confirmation as the Director of OMB, is doubtful. Drew Brandewie, a staffer of veteran Republican Senator John Cornyn, described the establishment liberal figure as having “zero chance of being confirmed” in a Sunday tweet.

Liberals went ballistic at the notion Tanden wouldn’t be approved by a Republican Senate majority after spending her career maligning the figures whose votes she would require.
In fairness to Tanden, the Senate Republicans are terrible, low-quality people.

Tanden was an essential figure in pioneering the ‘resistance’ branding of establishment Democrats during Trump’s first term.

Tanden appears to have deleted more than a thousand tweets on her personal Twitter account over the weekend, possibly attempting to clean any mines that could arise in potential Senate confirmation hearings.
