Baltimore Homicides Demonstrate the Results of Liberal Rule

Like Chicago’s murder rate, Baltimore homicides show where gun control and other progressive policies lead.

The story of Baltimore homicides is one among many that trickle out of the mainstream media. While progressives use the news about the progressive gunman to push for more gun restrictions, cities known to be ruled by progressives are often known to be centers of bloodshed, usually through firearms despite the restrictions.

CBS Baltimore reports, “Baltimore Nearing 160 Homicides Less Than Halfway Through 2017.

They’re homicide 155 and 157 in Baltimore, but the two victims’ faces have a story. Both were gunned down in violence that’s incomprehensible.

“The senselessness of this violence, I’m at a loss words,” said David Dvorak, Sebastian’s father.

Dvorak was a local bartender at Ryleigh’s Oyster. He was robbed and gunned down along Boston Street after a night out with friends.

His family has been left shattered.

Of course, in Baltimore, the city’s own government waged a sustained campaign against their own police base on accusations that had no merit. This is what the New York Times reported a year ago:
