28 Shootings, 9 Fatal, over Memorial Day Weekend in Baltimore

Amy Yensi, CBS Baltimore, May 25, 2015

{snip}

Police say 28 people were shot, 9 of them killed over this weekend, adding to the record-breaking violence.

The shooting didn’t stop on Monday night after a 9-year-old boy and another man were both injured by gun fire in the 2900 block of Arunah Avenue. Police say the child was shot in the leg and another man suffered a graze wound to the head.

Councilmember Mary Pat Clarke links the violence to a city still reeling from weeks of unrest.

“It was an earthquake kind of time and I think we’re still dealing with the aftershock,” she says.

The latest victims died early Monday morning. In the Western District a memorial marks the spot where a man and a woman were shot. The man later died, the woman is in critical condition.

North from there, a triple shooting. A man dies after he’s shot in the chest. Then cops discover two other males shot in the incident, including a 17 year old, after they walked to a local hospital.

WJZ media partner The Baltimore Sun reports 35 people have been killed so far in May making it the deadliest month in Baltimore since December of 1999. Some say the 3-day surge of violence may be a sign of a police department stretched too thin.

Since the beginning of the year, 108 people have died due to violence in the city.

      • Saw a version of it on YouTube over the weekend, and must have said it about 500 times since then. Took some explaining…

        • Earl P. Holt III

          I saw an episode of “Cops,” where two police officers responded to a shoplifting call from a mall in Florida. As the police drove up to the store, a black male, fitting the description of the complainant, nonchalantly walks toward them.

          The police do a quick “stop-and-frisk,” at which point they discover several “Ecstasy” tabs in the coin-pocket of his jeans. As they are removing this contraband, the nigro says:

          “Man, these ain’t even my pantses…”

          • Lexonaut

            I remember that episode. He said they were his cousin’s pants. If I recall correctly, one of the officers complimented him for having come up with an excuse that he, the officer, had never heard before in all of his twenty years on the force.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            You must have seen a different episode: I saw the one you are referencing within the past week or so…

          • Lexonaut

            Could be. I haven’t watched Cops much in a few years.

          • Alucard_the_last

            I saw an episode where a negro was hiding between two mattresses. It would have been funny if they set the mattress on fire.

          • Earl P. Holt III

      “Dindu nuffin.”

      • Alexandra1973

        I was watching Bait Car on YouTube, this black woman stole a car, got caught, first thing out of her mouth when she got out of the car was “I dindu nuffin!”

        • Caucasoid88

          I think they yell “Dindu nuffin!” while they commit drive-by shootings. Just to be on the safe side if there are witnesses.

        • cherrie greenbaum123

            By Jove, I think you’ve GOT IT…!

        • Alucard_the_last

          I wish they would put a napalm bomb in the bait car. I would be funny as hell watching them run out of the car on fire and not able to put it out. This is the only thing that works on these animals.

            I LIKE your STYLE…!

        “You have the right to remain silent.”

        But rarely the ability.

        • Lexonaut

          Which reminds me … If a black or group of blacks tries to stop me to ask the time or whatever, I say “You have the right to remain silent, I suggest you use it” … and keep right on walking, crossing the street if necessary.

      You can fill in the blanks.

        Nature is takin’ out its own trash.

  • Mr. L

    Left to their own devices, blacks will ultimately destroy themselves.

    • Dr. Rieux

      But the sad part is that they bring the innocent (non-DWLs) with them. With the internet it’s now impossible to hide dindu dysfunction, criminality and low intelligence. That The Civil Rights movement was a failure can be objectively seen.

      • Earl P. Holt III

        Integration has supplied them with a new class of victims, white people.

        It used to be true that most black-on-black violent crime exceeded black-on-white. This began to reverse in the mid to late 1990s, and is one of the more important points made by Jared Taylor in his book “The Color of Crime”…

    • Didn’t the city of Baltimore *want* them to have “room to destroy”?

      • dukem1

        Truth be told, I will give the mayor the benefit of the doubt, thinking that she _(she!) – was trying to articulate an obvious strategy of separating the “peaceful” from the primal
        Now, the evidence indicates this was not gonna be a happen’n thing….

        Ehhhh. that’s enough…Ball’mer is now just another city any civilized person would do well to avoid…
        I think I’ll start a club called “Move On”.

        • It’s a crying shame though, because like most of our once-great cities, Baltimore shows spectacular ‘vestiges of empire’ in many parts. Then, one wrong turn and it’s an absolute horror show.

          • FinnShane

            Sounds like Philly. You can be in Center City, and with one or two wrong turns suddenly end up among the Rowhomes of the Apocalypse.

          • Cid Campeador

            As a refugee from Philly, I totally concur.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            Sounds like “Bonfire of the Vanities.” (The book, not the silly movie.)

    • Jason Lewis

      If we could fence it in.

      • TruthBeTold

        Many years ago we had a white mayor who was hated by the general black community for being a ‘racist’ (simply because he was white and the neighborhood he was from) but he was liked by black leaders because he gave blacks want they wanted (the general black population still considered him a ‘racist’).

        His plan was simple. Give blacks what they want in their neighborhoods and they won’t want to move to other neighborhoods.

        It worked pretty well for a while. But he’s dead and gone and our black mayor can’t seem to get his act together to help black communities so now they’re on the move.

        • Cid Campeador

          Are you referring to Frank Rizzo?|
          He was one of the mayor of all mayors. None like him in Philly anymore.
          In NYC istwas Rudy Giuliani. He turned the city around. Then there was “no sugar” Bloomberg. Now it’s back to scary with Big Bird.

      Which is why we should, within reasonable limits, give them what they want.

      Their solutions to their problems only makes their problems worse.

    • Light from the East

      Black on black crime? Just another peaceful day of Baltimore.

      • Cid Campeador

        Off season they should use Camden Yards as a Gladiator arena. Let the gangs battle to the death with each other with edged weapons, and steel nets only. No GUNS. We don’t want them shooting at the crowd.
        The society had become lower with each passing year so why not replicate the ultimate degradation.
        BTW I read the that “thumbs up” was actually the sign to “finish off” the vanquished opponent.
        Actually stadiums across the Fundamentally Deformed America could be used. This form of entertainment would go viral.

        • archer

          You would of course televise it and maybe do pay per view this way you wouldn’t have to risk your life traveling to the stadium. I can’t even comprehend the money that could be made.

        • Dale McNamee

          Ravens/M&T Stadium would be a better venue… Less open…

      • archer

        Baltimore has always had problems, back in late 60’s my friend who was stationed there said “be careful” it’s the murder capitol of the country. The big attraction was the “block” a long line of strip clubs.

    • Alucard_the_last

      It can’t happen fast enough.

  • Chicago had 12 killed and 45 others shot.

    All St. Louis could muster was 2 killed and 9 others shot.

    Lame.

    • Reynardine

      A “Columbine” a weekend, most every holiday weekend. Par for the course for a large American city.

    • 1Forced_Registration

      I know, QD, back in the day St Louis used to regularly rival D.C., and Detroit for the title of the murder capitol of the country. Now we can’t even hold a candle to Chicago, Baltimore, and even Oakland. (Though this is partially because St Louis city and St Louis County are considered two separate jurisdictions by many of the stat counters, but also its a legit reflection on those places like Chicago being more dangerous at the moment).

      • And you’d think this would be the right time for the bellcurvers to strike the iron, because we’re now starting the first full summer after the riots.

        • dukem1

          Totally kinda off-topic, but perhaps the latest tome from Ms. Coulter may shed some light on the road ahead.

        • In much of the country, it’s been raining cats and dogs. They’ll wait until the weather dries out a bit.

    Anything but to the perpetrators themselves.

    • 1Forced_Registration

      You left out the even more popular belief in the black community that it is really white gang bangers going around and committing all of these crime and blacks are merely getting arrested for it …

      I’ve looked up “Jim Crow” and got only a description of what transpired during the era. Does anyone know where the actual title originated?

      • Blackfish

        From Wikipedia (fwiw):

        The phrase “Jim Crow Law” can be found as early as 1892 in the title of a New York Times article about voting laws in the South.The origin of the phrase “Jim Crow” has often been attributed to “Jump Jim Crow”, a song-and-dance caricature of blacks performed by white actor Thomas D. Rice in blackface, which first surfaced in 1832 and was used to satirize Andrew Jackson’s populist policies. As a result of Rice’s fame, “Jim Crow” by 1838 had become a pejorative expression meaning “Negro”. When southern legislatures passed laws of racial segregation directed against blacks at the end of the 19th century, these became known as Jim Crow laws.

  • Lady Texas

    This is the beginning of anarcho-tyranny in America, a misguided sense and false perceptions of discrimination, has caused anger against police to become so great that they will police high crime areas with less vigor. This will cause high crime areas to become even more high crime, aka. the rise in crime in Baltimore over this past holiday weekend. Police and authority figures will become less common in America’s inner cities over the next 5-10 years. The new reality in America is that violence and chaos in inner cities will be tolerated by the ruling classes so long as it doesn’t spill out of the inner cities. As the white proportion of the population in America decreases, along with the rise of anarcho-tyrrany, the country will be divided between civilized and non-civilized peoples. The future of America doesn’t look promising and looks more and more like the country is heading in the direction of a semi third-world banana-republic. America will become more militarized in the future, and this will be tolerated by citizens, as they realize that this will be the only force preventing the “rainbow” and diverse America from eating itself alive.

    • Dr. Rieux

      The country will break apart. Multicultural societies don’t last, and, frankly, the sooner it happens the better. I do not want my family and the people I love to live under the dysfunctional rule of blacks, Latinos and other-third worlders. I do not want them to become de facto slaves so Kyreesha can litter the country with the offspring of Shitavious, Lootie, DonYeah, Tyrone, D’marcus, Jamal and whoever else.

      • Lady Texas

        ” I do not want them to become de facto slaves so Kyreesha can litter the country with the offspring of Shitavious, Lootie, DonYeah, Tyrone, D’marcus, Jamal and whoever else.”

        I agree with everything you said but the above statement. In the “rainbow” America, I doubt blacks will be running much of anything, spare a few token positions and mayoral positions in certain cities. I predict America’s future ruling class will be white/white-latino.

        • Dr. Rieux

            Blacks (and liberals) have no understanding of money.

            They think money is a finite thing that racist white people selfishly horde for themselves.

      • It did the Weimar Republic a real treat in the early 1920’s. I have some old Weimar postage stamps that were originally printed “50 Millionen”, or 50 million Marks. Before they could be issued, inflation had so thoroughly destroyed the Mark that they were re-stamped “5 Milliard”, or 5 billion marks. One thing to remember is that a European billion is not a thousand million, as in the USA, but a million million. In other words, these postage stamps had been devalued by a factor of 100,000 before they could be issued.

      Blacks demanded the police pull back and they did.

      Blacks got what they want.

      Even so their ‘outrage’ will continue to grow.

      They will demand more policing at the same time they’re demanding less policing.

      When it comes to blacks, it’s always lose-lose. Damned if you do and damned if you don’t.

      • “They will demand more policing at the same time they’re demanding less policing.”

      2 – Encourage those communities to vote whites out of all decision making offices.

    But I thought Black lives mattered? It still defies logic when 9 people are killed over one weekend and it’s barely mentioned. But let one black person die from questionable circumstances, in police custody, and the world comes to a stop. Perhaps the narrative should change to “Black lives matter…..sometimes, depending on the circumstances, but usually not”.

    • Jason Lewis

      Only matters when a YT does it trying to uphold the law.

  • Ograf

    I guess if they want to kill each other I support their right to do that. If they burn their neighborhoods that is ok also. Every move they make where it doesn’t affect us is ok with me.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    In fact, for the latest round of bloodshed there isn’t even a single suspect under arrest….

    But, I thought once the BPD was stopped from forcing blacks to slaughter one another there would be no more homicides because “black lives matter.”

            Said Harris-Perry, “There’s no question about these alleged black cops’ ‘white African-Americaness’. [Photos of the three Officers] For example, look at Officer Caesar Goodson, shown here… Obviously he’s not a ‘full-blooded’ African-American, as his complexion clearly shows. Plus he has two moles on the left side of his neck —clearly a sign of white ancestry. Then you have Officer William Porter (image shown). …Look at the shape of his head. His head is shaped like a peanut! Clearly he is part of this country’s majority —whites—, because if he were of majority African heritage, his head would be nice and round like a bowling ball. But it’s not! He’s got a typical European ‘peanut head’, and that peanut head allowed him to take part in the murder of Freddie Gray. Porter has Freddie Gray’s blood on that peanut head of his! His European ancestry, on display by his peanut-head, made him be part of this crime!”

          Hairy-Peary is now SO nutty nutty nutball that she offends even her own kind. Even on MSNBC. (!)

          How I love it when they eat their own.

          Seriously, you’ve GOT to read this to believe it. Look up, verbatim:
          MSNBC Says Black Cops Charged In Freddie Gray’s Death Are Actually ‘‘White African-Americans’’

          Here’s the full URL if you have the patience. Remember to remove the spaces.

      “WHITE AFRICAN-AMERICANS” Wow! This is so far the most creative thing black people can say. Just look at how white the cops have become!

    • Spikeygrrl

      WHAT??!!

      Oh, PLEASE tell me that super was PhotoShopped??!!

  • Who Me?

    OT: “nine-year-old boy and another man” … what kind of writing is this,? Is the author trying to imply that a 9 year old boy is a man too? I thought Journalism students were supposed to learn how to construct a proper sentence in the English language? Guess not.
    As for the victims of the shootings, it is almost certain they were all hoodrats, so I can’t scrape up much emotion about it either way.

    • Alexandra1973

      I’ve seen my 13-year-old autistic son construct better sentences. Seriously. Nowadays it’s almost painful to read articles because it seems like the author didn’t get past kindergarten.

      • Spikeygrrl

        “ALMOST”?!

    • Lady Texas

      Black 10 year old shot by a black thug during drive by = MAN

      Black 18 year old, the size of an NFL defensive lineman, shot by police officer after attacking and trying to steal his weapon = CHILD

    • Some years ago I regularly used the “contact us” feature online regarding atrocious English in print articles, and express my suspicion as to why these “journalists” were really hired. Hint: the first word of the two was “oral”, and I applied this just as universally to the men as the women.

      I never received any replies, but someone was sure reading my (insulting) messages.

      • Lexonaut

        It should be all of a suddenly, yes?

        • Joy

          One of my favorites is “gunfire erupted”.

          • Lexonaut

            Or “robbery gone bad” when blacks kill white for the sheer fun of it.

    • belajadevotchka2

      Whenever I see someone write “would of”, “should of”, etc, it takes all of my willpower not to punch myself in the eye. NO OTHER ERROR ON EARTH makes me as crazy as this. I think I see this 5-10 times every day In comments and on forums. I want to scream until my throat ruptures.
      A few months ago I saw a WSJ article that had that vile travesty, “should of” in it. It’s bad enough when your average public school educated morom writes this, but A JOURNALIST??? A “Wall Street Journalist, no less! And THEN it makes it past proofreaders and editors!!!
      Kill me NOW.

      • Who Me?

        The one that really sets my teeth on edge is the misuse of there, their and they’re. Turning “their house” into “there house” or worse yet, “they’re house” just blows my mind! Another is “except” and “accept”, and “then” vs. “than”. GRRRR!
        This ignorance is rampant because few Americans under the age of 30 have ever bothered to pick up and actually READ a book in their lives.
        You can’t learn proper grammar from watching TV, The contraction of “should have” into “should’ve” does SOUND like “should of”, but a literate person can pick up the difference. (And use it properly.)

      • Spikeygrrl

        I used to write professionally. I have a whole laundry list of these sorts of bêtes noire. I regularly, literarally, growl out loud and bang my head against something hard while reading these boards — yes, and the efforts of many “professional” authors and journalists, too.

        (My husband teases me about the now-permanent sore spot on the side of my head which he has had to learn to avoid when running his fingers through my hair.)

        My late father the university Head of Graduate Studies in English Literature and my late mother the Children’s Librarian — back when those titles were both erudite and honorable — are both surely rolling in their graves at what passes for writing today.

  • Jack Richards

    That’s pretty good going: 108 in 5 months in one city. That’s more than the total for Australia and New Zealand combined with a population of about 30 million.
    There used to be a law in the US that blacks could not own fire-arms. I think Baltimore proves the wisdom of earlier generations of Americans.

    • Lady Texas

      There should be an iq test for firearm ownership.

      • Alexandra1973

        I can imagine the howls from the PC crowd over “disparate impact.”

        • Lady Texas

          Libtards would all the sudden become pro-gun.

      • phillyguy

        99.9 % of guns in the hands of a negro is stolen, all illegal firearms.

    • Spikeygrrl

      With the heavily supervised exceptions of police and military.

      I dared to say that on another list a month or so ago. I got permanently banned.

  • MekongDelta69

    No mention of the word black in the article.

    And of course… NO comments allowed.

    (What a shock!)

  • Speedy Steve

    Give them the policing they require and they piss and moan. Don’t give them the policing they need and they whimper. Bloody savages!

  • Ed

    This was all very predictable, in fact I predicted this would happen the day the idiot prosecutor announced charges. I predicted the cops would just fall back and collect the bodies. They’re under no obligation to aggressively police an area to prevent crime.

    So the black bodies will be piling up at the morgue this summer in Bloodymore.

  • cherrie greenbaum123

    Can we start building monuments to negroes who died during this gun fire goan roan? I mean, Black Lives Matter! We need to start building some monuments. Talkin’ bout some stuffed teddy bears, plastic flowers. Let’s get behind this! Gnome sane?

  • Simonetta

    When I lived in New Orleans there was a city park next to the school. I found a big old tree in the park that had a plaque saying that it was the ‘dueling oak’. Back before the civil war, young men could challenge another young man to a duel. The two would meet at the oak, stand 20-30 feet away from each other and try their best to kill each other with one individual shot of a primitive handgun. If you dueled and got shot, tough luck. If you lived, then you learned not to piss off people with glib comments. No attempted murder charges, no accessory or obstruction or conspiracy charges, nothing. However bad blood started for any reason in antebellum New Orleans, it ended at the Oak.

    We need to bring back the dueling oak for the young black people who are genetically predisposed to kill each other, and gain status in their communities by doing so in the most psychotic ways imaginable. No attempted murder charges, no accessory or obstruction or conspiracy charges, no $30,000 per year per inmate jail costs, no nothing.

    It’s the frog and the scorpion with the young blacks. They kill each other because that is their inherent nature. We should just let them do it to each other.

  • Don Eladio

    Anything from chucklebarry or chewblacka about all this?

  • MBlanc46

    Why should Baltimore cops attempt to guarantee public safety when the citizens execrate them for it? Let Baltimoreans live with the reality they’ve created.

  • zamzow

    My old Uncle Bill was a NYC police man for 30 years. He retired in the early 80’s and passed away in 1994. He worked in the Bronx and said they let the denizens kill each other off and would just do the cleanups. He called the Bronx, ” a self cleaning oven.”

      Check out the movie “Fort Apache, The Bronx”, written by my NYC high school friend Woody Gould.

    Well, well, another Morton’s Fork for the hapless black community. The police force should just all quit or bargain for the witch hunt to stop. Using black thugs to diminish the power of the police has been part of the agenda of present guy in the WH for some time.

    • Spikeygrrl

      Re “Morton’s Fork”: Thanks for teaching me something today!

      In the words of my beloved late father, the day you stop learning is the day you start dying.

    Apparently Obongo is using these murders committed by his base to stump for gun control, despite that none of those who commit them could legally own one or that they’d decide to obey this law either.

    bwaaaaahahaha #blackliesmatter,yea it’s the cops that are shooting all the black thugs ,riiiiiight.

    By the way when will we be marching “TO STOP THE VIOLENCE” rothflmfao!

  • Alucard_the_last

    I am so glad this is happening. They hate the police so the police shouldn’t waste their time policing their rotten neighborhood. Now they will whine ‘racism’ because of these killings. Good riddance.

  • Earl P. Holt III

    Give ’em all FREE VODKA — says I — and the crime problem will take care of itself…!

    • Why not? Cheap crack is working out so well, after all.

      • Earl P. Holt III

        They already kill each other over crack “deals”: My thought was that there would be a synergistic effect from the addition of large amounts of vodka, making the investment well worth the cost…

  • Dale McNamee

    Isn’t it funny that all these shootings and killings are taking place in cities with anti-gun laws ? /sarc

    The irony is too much !

    Are any of the victims white? No? Then I simply am unable to devote one ounce of giveadamn. Maybe if my people weren’t being constantly attacked, I would have a little giveadamn left to offer, but as it is, I am all out.

  • “It was an earthquake kind of time and I think we’re still dealing with the aftershock,”

    I’ve gotten very cynical about people who misuse science to explain various issues. I suppose what she really means is that this is still the fault of the racist cops and is simply as unavoidable as an earthquake. Ergo none of the perpetrators of the violence, shootings, beatings, thefts, or what ever are really at fault.

    While the increase in violence after restrictions on the police is predictable. None of them really wants to give the underlying reason. Now that the savages know they can get away with stuff, expect this behavior to increase.

      Okay, maybe a bit less exuberance.

      • Exuberant Auditor

        That wasn’t exuberant at all!

        That’s just a nice, soft-spoken guy wishing the beloved black community of Baltimore to eat feces.
