2015 was deadliest year in Baltimore history

The proximate cause of this huge spike in murders in Baltimore was the power vacuum caused by the retreat of the police force from the inner city following the April Freddie Grey riots. Since then the rival black street gangs have been engaged in never ending turf wars to gain greater market share in Baltimore’s enormous illegal drug trade. The number of drug addicts and drug users in the city is estimated to be one fifth of the population; this is probably a gross underestimate and there are doubtless even more residing in surrounding suburbs. The gangs were able to loot tens of thousands  of bottles of opiate and opioid pain killers (Oxycodone, OxyContin, Perkeset, Darvon,  etc.) from drug stores in the city during the riot, so they have  lots of high value pharmaceutical grade dope to sell to their customer base. There’s tons of money to be made and it’s worth killing over.

Black lives don't matter to the predatory left.

The left exploits blacks and others as leverage to create social unrest. The end objective is the displacement of Western culture and free markets.

2015 was the deadliest year in Baltimore's history. Nearly all the 344 murders — almost one per day — were young black males murdered by other black males; lives lost who don't matter to Black Lives Matter.

Blood was shed in Baltimore at an unprecedented pace in 2015, with mostly young, black men shot to death in a near-daily crush of violence.

On a per-capita basis, the year was the deadliest ever in the city. The year's tally of 344 homicides was second only to the record 353 in 1993, when Baltimore had about 100,000 more residents.

The killings were on pace with recent years in the early months of 2015 but skyrocketed after the unrest and rioting of late April. In five of the next eight months, killings topped 30 or 40 a month.

Nearly 90 percent of the year's homicides were the result of shootings, renewing calls for new gun laws. Counting nonfatal shootings, gun violence was up more than 75 percent compared to last year, with more than 900 people shot.

More than 90 percent of the homicide victims this year were boys or men, more than 90 percent were black, and more than half were between the ages of 18 and 30 — reflecting an urban reality that residents and civil rights activists say is devoid of legitimate job opportunities and caught up in the often-violent drug trade.
