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.
The American Right Should Beware of Campaign Consultant Grifters
Some people want to make a quick buck with zero results to show for it.
Heading into 2022 and 2024, America First operatives should be careful dealing with campaigns run by grifters.
Patrick Clerbune of VDARE put out an informative post that serves as a warning to all about the rampant corruption within Republican political consultant outfits.
He highlighted a Washington Post piece detailing how donors gave more than $8 million to Kim Klacik, a black woman running as a Republican candidate in Maryland’s 7th district. In reality, the money donated to Klacik’s campaign went straight to the fat pockets of political consultants who knew full well that she couldn’t win.
The Post went into further detail about this naked grifting opportunity:
Her campaign is an example of how some consulting firms are profiting handsomely from Republican candidates who have robust appeal in today’s politically charged environment…
By the end of Klacik’s campaign, she would raise a staggering $8.3 million and pay nearly $3.7 million of it to Olympic Media, according to campaign finance filings.
For political veterans, this is nothing new under the sun. Political consultant parasites such as Karl Rove are notorious for enriching themselves by running failed campaigns and diverting resources from actual winnable races. Rove was also involved in the Georgia Senate dumpster fire, where the GOP dropped a whopping $1 billion and still ended up losing both seats.
Pointing out how the managerial state is detrimental to all Americans, especially minorities, is one thing. But using failed ethnic pandering and running campaigns in districts that can never be won by Republicans is another.
In the aforementioned case, Maryland’s 7th district has never gone Republican in its history and was the long-time home of Elijah Cummings from 1996 until his death in 2019. Democrat challenger Kweisi Mfume completely obliterated Klacik 74 to 25 in the 2020 general election.
Intelligent nationalists would be wise to recognize that certain races are lost causes, which drain resources that could otherwise be allocated towards winnable campaigns. A large degree of skepticism should always be directed towards the political consultant class. Their money-making model does not always translate into electoral success.
