More than half of Baltimore’s 309 homicide victims in 2018 were shot in the head, according to the police department’s annual homicide analysis released Wednesday.
Two people were killed and two others — including a Baltimore police sergeant — were injured Monday morning when an armed man entered a drug treatment center on Maryland Avenue in Charles North demanding access to methadone, police said.
Dozens of Maryland government employees rallied Wednesday in downtown Baltimore, protesting what they say is the Hogan administration’s refusal to fill thousands of vacant positions in state government.
As Scott Pressler said, Stop talking and start doing…
As I read these articles and the main reason in Baltimore as I see it, is drugs, drug crew fighting other crews. Who are the customers?
Karon Elijah Peoples, age 24, of Baltimore, Maryland, pleaded guilty today to a heroin distribution conspiracy. Peoples admitted that during his participation in the conspiracy, he was responsible for distributing, or facilitating the distribution, of between nine and 10 kilograms of heroin. In addition, Peoples admitted that nine fatal overdose victims and 18 overdose survivors had contacted Peoples’ phones prior to their overdose—either by phone call or text message—in order to arrange for the purchase of heroin.
As it started a primarily white problem, it quickly became the black community with the introduction to fentanyl. Who makes Fentanyl?
We keep hearing about the Chinese and fentanyl and being transported over the Southern border. Let’s check that out.
Trump’s tariffs are now pushing fentanyl production back underground, undoing many of the advances the US had made over the past few years. Treasury Secretary Mnuchin repeatedly tells us that 90 percent of the trade deal is done. The other 10 percent must be agreed on soon, or the opioid trade will once again disappear underground.
I wonder what the president will think about this report, and I think it’s worth talking to Roger Bate.
Fentanyl, legally made is used for chronic pain relief and surgery.
I know, the hospital used this on me instead of Morphine last year during a disc replacements surgery in my neck. I found it hard to wake up.
The problem in counterfeit fentanyl the author called it mislabeling, and it crosses many countries, not just China. Mixed with Heroin is killing our citizens.
Such production and intentional mislabeling of products is just one reason why I’m skeptical that China, or frankly any emerging nation, can effectively clamp down on fentanyl production. Chemical producers are important employers and hence have political backers, making action against them more problematic. Furthermore, many chemicals have multiple uses, so to switch a few hundred pounds of a chemical from a legitimate use to a troubling one is simple for manufacturers. And such a change is very hard for regulators to spot, even if companies maintain complete paperwork, and if they don’t it is nigh on impossible, and may only be found through spot inspections or whistleblowers, neither of which is frequent in emerging markets. After all, a few hundred pounds of key chemicals is all that is required to make millions of doses of fentanyl.
Hmm, that is a tough one, has anyone thought this through? Are we experience the downers revolutions like we once to did with Pablo in the 80’s but this one is on a grander scale. Notice these are the people that will pollute as the Green New Deal will give these corporation money.
Thank God the president pulled out of Paris accord a get rich scheme for elites but let’s keep on killing the citizens of America. I know you’re saying JD that doesn’t make any sense! Watch this one
Okay, I’m scared, and we need to make sure we push the right lever when we vote. Trump 2020

Why is so much money sent to the Elijah Cummings district when it is considered the worst run and most dangerous anywhere in the United States. No human being would want to live there. Where is all this money going? How much is stolen? Investigate this corrupt mess immediately!

Baltimore officials and national Democratic officeholders fired back at President Trump Saturday after he tweeted criticism of Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., who has represented parts of the city in Congress for more than 20 years.
I’ve heard nothing but bad about Baltimore, and it used to be one of the greatest cities in America.
There is a video attached to the Fox report it looks like LA, needles, trash, rats, roaches. Do something for these people now! These kind folks don’t want to hear the same old song and dance. If Rep Cummings received money for West Baltimore, then do something, now!
Don’t throw stones at the White house without them being thrown back!
GOP strategist Kimberly Klacik on Saturday accused Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., of hypocrisy over his apparent concern for conditions at the U.S.-Mexico border over those of his own district.
Rep. Elijah Cummings, Don’t forget about your people! Clean it up. The people deserve it!
.@realDonaldTrump was Correct about Elijah Cummings district being dangerous & ran down!
West Baltimore is infamous for its very high crime rate!
I say it’s time for @RepCummings to Resign! We need TERM LIMITS!

Cummings’s district includes much of Baltimore, but it also reaches into Baltimore and Howard counties.
Data from the 2017 U.S. Census shows Cummings’ district is nearly 53% percent black and nearly 36% white. Seven percent of the district is Asian, nearly 4% is Hispanic and less than 1% percent of the area is Native American and Pacific Islander. The median age in the majority-female district is 38.9, and residents 18 years and over make up nearly 79% of the population, data shows.
Cummings’ congressional district received just under $15.7 billion in grants, benefits and other assistance from the federal government in Fiscal Year 2018, according to Newsweek’s analysis of the federal awards data compiled by USAspending.gov. By comparison, districts like Indiana’s 7th (at $16.5 billion), New Jersey’s 12th (at $17.2 billion) and Pennsylvania’s 4th (at $27.4 billion) all received more money in the same period, according to Newsweek’s website.
