    BLM FAIL: Massive Murder Spike Due To Lack Of Police Presence, Complain Baltimore Residents

    The murder rate in Baltimore has skyrocketed since Black Lives Matter activists began protesting law enforcement for the death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man who died in the back of a police van in 2015. Residents are now upset, blaming the murder spike on the lack of police presence in the city, which is ironically exactly what BLM activists called for.

    After calls for a police pullback, the murder rate subsequently spiked in Baltimore, hitting a record high per capita homicide rate. In the final week of 2017, the city reached a total of 343 homicides.

    In a report from NPR, residents came out swinging over the disturbing climb in murders.

    “We wanted the police there,” claimed Rev. Kinji Scott. “We wanted them engaged in the community. We didn’t want them beating the hell out of us, we didn’t want that. We need the front line police officers and we need the heart of the black community to step to the forefront of this discussion. And that’s when we’re going to see a decrease in crime.”

    Scott continued, arguing that Baltimore is in need of higher levels of good policing.

    “And of course we want to delineate the whole culture of bad policing that exists — nobody denies that — but as a result of this, we don’t see the level of policing we need in our community to keep the crime down in our cities that we are seeing bleed to death,” he said.

    The people in those communities have no respect for the police and no respect for law and order. When the cops go into the hood to do their jobs, the local people harass them — gathering in groups and yelling out threats every time the police try to arrest someone.

    Why would any cop in his right mind want to put his life on the line to "protect" these trouble-making whiners? Shit on them. They got what they asked for, the cops backed off. They should be happy, and now they should shut their whining mouths.

    With such a sharp spike in murders, the problem isn't the police, it's in the community itself.
