Baltimore we have a problem!

And I’m not talking about police excessive force or the shooting of unarmed black men.

The numbers are startling.

In just 72 hours, this past Memorial Weekend 29 people were shot, 7 were killed.

This month is the city’s deadliest in more than a decade, since 1999.

There have been 108 homicides so far this year, up 40 percent from last year.

City officials are dumbfounded to say the least.

The mayor says it’s disheartening.

The Police Chief Anthony Batts blames, in part, the recent unrest.

“Officers tell me and their supervisors, any time they pull up to respond to a call, they have 30 to 50 people surrounding them. We have to send in multiple units just to do basic police work, which says we have to work on community engagement.”

Batts has added more officers and presence in the Western District where most of the violence is occurring but so far it hasn’t helped.

“It makes it very difficult to follow up on violence that takes place there,” he said. “Clearly, they’re not holding back. They’re getting to those locations and getting surrounded. You have many citizens with hand-held cameras that they’re sticking in the faces of officers, an inch off the officer’s face.”

The real story however may not be anything Batts or the Mayor want to admit.

Arrests numbers are plummeting while the murder rate is surging.

Listen to a part of this report from my CNN colleague Miguel Marquez.

The officer’s voice is disguised for fear of retribution.

Miguel – “And morale? Where is morale for police officers?”

Officer –  “It’s in the sewers. It’s down.  It’s the worse of the worse I’ve ever seen in my career.”

The officer told Miguel the spike in murders and gun crime was the direct result of a coordinated police work slowdown.

Miguel – “Why do you think there is a great increase in the crime rate and the number of shootings in this town?”

Officer – “Officers stopped being proactive.

Miguel –  “Not patrolling?”

Officer –  “Not patrolling.  Just stop being proactive.

Miguel –  “Not talking to the community?

Officer – “Not talking.  Stop being proactive.  I believe it is a direct result of officers holding back.”

35 murders so far this month alone.

People are walking into hospitals from gunshot wounds that may not have even been reported to police.

Residents tell reporters they see officers driving right past street fights and disturbances.

City leaders, like Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, are in the same predicament as New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio after two officers were murdered during unrest in that city.

Officers turned their backs to De Blasio as he visited injured officers in the hospital and at the officer’s funerals.

But officers in Baltimore, according to at least one of their own, are turning their backs on not only the Mayor but also the citizens they’re sworn to protect.

Here are a list of the shootings and homicides from this weekend.

    Honestly, if you were a Baltimore cop, would you dare chase or try to apprehend a person in that city? The criminals now have free reign there, and they know it.

    Be careful what you wish for Baltimore, you may just get it.

    • Straight Up on said:

      So “police brutality” ought not to be blamed on the police? That’s an interesting spin on democratic principles.

      • Straight Up on said:

        A trick question? Nothing “trick” about it. Or perhaps you live in North Korea? In my country Democracy works like this:

        1). Criminal COMMITS a crime.
        2). Police APPREHEND the criminal.
        3). Judges DECIDE the punishment.
        4). Prisons ADMINSTER punishment.

        So tell me, how you do it in Pyongyang?

  4. Corsica on said:

    So the cops are to blame, huh, Donny sweetie? Well I don’t blame them. It’s good that LE stays out of black ghettos. It not worth it and they can’t win! And that’s what blacks want and desire. And that’s what the pos president affirmed.

    It would be so easy to hate; but there is nothing about me that wants to be “white”; they’re too evil.

      • LindaBlair on said:

        LMFAO! Yeah, that’s why all the most recent murders have been what? Non white.

      • Straight Up on said:

        The subject is “evil”. I don’t know what your definition of evil is but I’m thinking serial murderers, dismemberment, necrophilia, saving body parts and eating them. I’m thinking Ted Bundy, John Wayne Gacy, Jeffrey Dahmer, Eddie Gein, Leonard Lake, Gary Ridgeway, and so many others. Generally speaking the majority of “evil” people have been white.

    • meanwhile a black thug will knock you over the head for the few dollars you got in your pocket in a heartbeat. black folks are becoming immune to the crimes in their own culture, that it’s sad.

  6. It is so EXCITING finally to hear some GOOD NEWS. Maybe it’ll spread & spread until some of the SMART PEOPLES like the MAYOR, AL NOTSOSHARPTON, & THE PRESIDENT, HOLDER, & THE NEW LADY etc.will see it with different eyes. Then look out for the new FEMALE PRESIDENT who is still with her FORNICATING husband gets to live in the HUB of all CRIMINALS. THIS COUNTRY IS GOING DOWN FAST PEOPLE!!

  7. LEADERSHIP……LEADERSHIP…..LEADERSHIP…..

    you either got it, or you don’t. If I were the mayor, I’d hire Rudy G. as a consultant and get the city back on track. You want to let the thugs run the city, then businesses will leave faster than flies going to honey. If citizens want to act like thugs, put them in jail.

  8. No accountability by the people committing the crimes. And we all know who is to blame for this and he lives on Pennsylvania Ave.

  9. Maybe Al Sharpton can put his own police force together? You have 50% of the Baltimore police force black, the Mayor is black, the police chief is black, the president of the United States is black as is the new Attorney General and the one before her. Yet this is still racism? There is no reason for this thinking. It’s a mentality that it’s always someone else’s fault. Obama and Sharpton have led the racist charge on that one. Now they can see what it’s like when cops don’t “bother” young black men “just standing on the corner”. Now N.Y.C. Mayor Deblosio who got rid of “stop and frisk” and has seen the murder rate jump 60% in his first year! These Liberals are killing us. Maybe one day a black single mother will wake up in the ghetto on election day and say to herself, WTF am I doing voting for Democrats for the last 40 years. I’m still in the ghetto!

    We can dance and point fingers all damn day.Single motherhood rates in the black community are inching towards 80%.Of course having such rates of fatherlessness in a any group of people would lead to America’s future car thieves,murderers and rapists.HEY AMERICA,CLOSE YOUR LEGS!!!

    Bring the National Guard back. Put the city under lockdown, no one goes in and no one comes out. Shut all the attractions down and move all sporting events out of town. Force the mayor to resign and let the National Guard decide who the next mayor will be, no vote. Enough is enough, bring the National Guard back and this time keep them there.

    • That is exactly what that cesspool of a city deserves. Their mayor can chalk it up to her asinine way of protecting criminals and prosecuting police that do their job. These police officers at times do not have any other choice than to become aggressive with this trash of criminals, because they are in fear of their own lives. And this idiots of a mayor and city attorney are now prosecuting police officers for doing their job. I do not blame any of the officers for slowing down and ignoring the crimes that are going on, especially in the neighborhood that was the cause of all of this crap going on in that cesspool. Every police officer now has to be afraid to do their job and get these criminals off the street, because they will never know if there is some trash citizen with a “free-government subsidized” cellphone that will take their picture or video and then it will all be twisted around to charge these officers with “murder”….. think about how totally stupid and asinine all of this is. EVERYONE of the people that were involved in the confrontations with the police have been criminals, drug dealers or something to that effect. But the mayor and idiot prosecutor is protecting that trash and charging police officers with Murder or whatever else they are being charged with. Are you people really THAT stupid to think that police officers will stand for that? He…..llllll to the NO. And they shouldn’t. Baltimore, you got what you asked for: Freedom from the “prosecution” from police officers…. you got the freedom now to enjoy all the crimes and shooting that you can handle. Go, citizens of Baltimore, take care of yourself. All of you are total idiots.

  12. kwilli on said:

    I do believe that there are a lot of factors at fault here. Yes, the Ploice are on edge and who could fault them for that anxiety, however if they are just doing their jobs there should be no fear of outrage from the community. It’s just like the auditors on your jobs. Just continue to do your job as you are trained and their presence won’t make a difference. Because of all the outrage and unrest, are Police officers now becoming lax in their response time? Are they becoming just a little apathetic, especially in the Western districts of Baltimore City?

    What excuse do we have for shooting our own, Selfishness, Lack of respect, UNGODLINESS!!! I do believe the latter is probably the biggest reason for the lawlessness.

  13. Brian Holster on said:

    Wow. First the blacks in Baltimore complained that police were the problem. The way they did their job was too harsh, too violent, just arresting and killing black men for no reason. So now the police officers pull back and when given the opportunity to show the world how Baltimore could be with less policing; what happens? All hell breaks loose and now the police are the problem again for not arresting enough, not policing enough. It’s all about personal responsibility and that’s something the black community needs to learn. As long as they blame others for their situation they’ll never get better just like alcoholics, drug addicts, or anyone who blames others instead of being proactive.

      NOTE To the Black Community…

      It may interest you to know, that an organization, by the name of ACORN, hired protesters to “Rape and Pillage” Ferguson, MO., with the intention of paying said protesters $5000.00 for the month!

      Well…GUESS WHAT? ACORN reneged on their promise and now those same criminals are protesting against ACORN.
      These people are QUITE STUPID, to say the least, being that by raising cain, they are implicating themselves to criminal acts.

      Regardless, because of these scumbags and all the other forces responsible for the “Pussification” of our police departments, you are now the victims of your own demise!

      Lastly, because of your “Black Lives Matter” and “No Justice No Peace” signs, well, “You Made your Bed, now Sleep in it”!

  14. Let’s see CNN and other media outlets demonize all cops as being racist white thugs despite half the cops charged in Freddy Greys death are black and stirs up a mob of people against all cops and white people in general. Cops all over the country are attacked and killed and random innocent white people who are not cops and have nothing to do with the situation are attacked because of the color of their skin as well. The cops are afraid to do their job for fear that something could go wrong they would get all the blame in the rush to judgment to appease the mob of people who threaten to burn and loot if they don’t get their way. Gee who couldn’t see that one coming. You will soon if not already see an exodus from the police force especially of whites who will not want to be police officers in predominately black communities. Walking around white with a police uniform on in those neighborhoods is now like painting a target on one’s back. They can’t do their jobs anymore because they are hated for the color of their skin and not trusted because they are cops so they might as well quit or transfer to another police force in a predominately white area where they can do their job properly without fear of being a victim of a hate crime. But I forgot when white people are attacked and killed for their color of their skin it is not called a hate crime by the white politically correct liberal types. Only white people can be racist according to them. Everything is the fault of white people according to the white liberals and we all must pay for the sins of others in the past who share our skin color and pay forever. All white people are to blame for the cops and the rioters according to liberal logic. Have I summed things up nicely?

    The only solution for places like Baltimore, and Ferguson is an all black police force, and an all black city council. Whites just can’t do an effective job anymore where the population is mainly black, because of the bias against white police officers.

    • You might want to check your facts. The majority of people receiving welfare benefits in the US are Caucasian…from one rural town to another coast to coast. The US Census is a good place to start.

  17. David19082 on said:

    If they refuse to do their job the way they swore to and being paid to do then FIRE THEM ALL the same way Ronald Reagan did the air traffic controllers back in the 80s. IMO law enforcement is one profession that should NOT be unionized in any way. They swore to serve and protect citizens NOT themselves the way a union culture promotes to it’s members. I haven’t been on this site in a while and it’s distressing to read many of the comments showing that this site has become nothing more than a cesspool for ignorant white racist hatred. So much for post racial America under Obama. As far as Don Lemon is concern no one with any intelligence takes this clown seriously. He is nothing more than a paid wannabe black gay conservative hypocrite spewing what his white masters tell him to say.

    • johnlee on said:

      Now that people have cameras pointed at them they’re scared of being exposed for what they are. All this shows is cops were never doing their job to begin with. Cell phone cameras are exposing the truth. Something white mainstream media refused to do.

  18. Cops are ignoring crime issues in Baltimore. Now how could this be happening? Black lives matter thats why the cops were taking the thugs (black and white) off the streets. Now cops are in the OBAMA MODE taking care of business “da way dey like it”. So I do not blame the cops. What does the liberal mainstream media do now to get a GOOD story? Thugs beating up and killing thugs is not juicy enough. Besides its too dangerous to push a camera in a thugs face while he is doin’ his thang.

    • Straight Up on said:

      And you don’t think they should blame white Americans, huh? Who do you think it is who’s pushing the blacks up against the wall and into the corner? Al Qaida? ISIS? Saddam Husein? Fidel Castro? Kim Jong-un? Vladimir Putin? Ho Chi Minh? Barrack Obama? Jesse Jackson? Would you rather blame them instead?

        Let’s see if I have this correct: Baltimore has been 50 years with a Democrat administration, plus…

        Population is 68 % melanin-enriched;
        Police department is 68 % melanin-enriched;
        Fire department is 58% melanin-enriched;
        School district is 86% melanin-enriched;
        School teachers are 72% melanin-enriched;
        City council is 90% melanin-enriched;
        Mayor is a melanin-enriched;
        City attorney is melanin-enriched;
        Chief of police is melanin-enriched;
        54% of population is on welfare with the vast majority melanin-enriched;
        21 % of all jobs are government with the vast majority melanin-enriched.

        …yet they believe the whites are the reason they are living in poverty?

        I USED TO NOT BE PREJUDICED. THANK YOU OBAMA FOR OPENING MY EYES!

      • If some black thug had shot Freddie Gray instead of his injuries being sustained in police custody, we wouldn’t even know his name and there would be no outrage.

      • Straight Up on said:

        @ Dr. Don.
        You have just described a racist attitude. No, not you ….. the fact that race is the determining factor in media reporting. RACISM: This is the basis for American corruption and dissatisfaction and what keep racism alive and flourishing.

    • Straight Up on said:

      Baltimore is only one city. American corruption, racism – plus EVERYTHING else that puts blacks (and other minorities, not only racial) against the wall – comes from the top.Unequal rights, unemployment, inferior education, etc. I am surprised you don’t realize that.

    • Straight Up on said:

      Incorrect. You are dealing with an upper class Fascist/Nazi government …. and don’t let your light skin fool you into thinking it’s only about “race”, making you safe. You’re not. The fence around the Whine House, the Pentagram, and the corporate moguls is broadening to make room for bulging mounds of money. The more they accumulate, the less you’ll get … and then it’s a simple matter of eliminating you altogether … no matter you are black, brown, or white.

  19. Evert police officer should be fired. From the top down. Bring in the national guard to police, while requiting the best candidates from all the neighborhoods. Pay top dollar! Get the Best this city has to offer, and train them to police, not PREY on the people they are paid to protect. Turn the whole city around in five-ten years.

    • Straight Up on said:

      Not the “One Size Fits All” (“once and for all”) remedy but an excellent step in the right direction … and probably the best “first step” to take too.

    This is EXACTLY what I’ve discussed on other web forums!!!
    The “pussification” of different police departments around the country, to a point where they won’t respond to a call in communities, known to be of high crime.

    The imbeciles hoping to get paid for protesting (and DIDN’T) should pat themselves on the back for accomplishing this task and successfully pussifying the police dept!
    NOTICE: that good old Al Sharpton is keeping a low profile! Hmmmm…I wonder why?!

    NOW…You are ON YOUR OWN! ENJOY!

  21. It’s so bizarre. Yes, there is crime in Baltimore and therefore criminals in Baltimore. The public didn’t demand no policing, they are simply afraid of the police, too. And now that they are being asked to regain the public trust by not striking fear into the black citizen for simply being black, they find it easier to just not do their jobs. How does one live in such an environment?

      Where did all these ignorant, stupid, racist white dogs come from. Shouldn’t they be at a klan rally somewhere. I hate these ignorant, cowardly racist, who don’t even claim responsibility for their own, murderers, thieves, robbers, rapist, drug addicts, serial killers, mass murderers, dead beat dads, no good mothers and out of control kids. The white bikers just had a massive shoot out, you don’t hear these racist pigs saying a damn thing about that. Their day is coming and it’s coming from their own. Just like the Coward American Sniper, got it in the back from one of his own…Good Riddance!

        So true. I bet no comments posted about…Former LAPD Officer Wanted in Killing Appears in Texas Court. Coward ran to Mexico. What about the crazy man who they haven’t even captured yet, that held his girlfriend captive in a box, then eventually killed her and her 17 yr old son. Crickets…crickets….Talk about crime, check out Forensic Files and you’ll get a whole bunch of white on white crime. But again…crickets….crickets….

    Finally, an appropriate response from the police. Until the community “appreciates” police work this tactic should be employed. God Bless the police!

  23. Given the riots, etc. I think it’s silly to expect any other response from the cops. They don’t want to be fired, they don’t want to be killed, they don’t want to be injured, they don’t want to be the subject of media coverage which causes more riots, and they certainly don’t want to wind up in prison for the rest of their lives, so the only option left is to simply be very hesitant and cautious while performing the job. They must walk on eggshells in this community, where criminals have more rights than cops do (and, given the mayor’s directive, criminals also have more rights than the law abiding citizens). So the good citizens and the cops must be very cautious not to anger the criminals, which means the cops will be hesitant to respond and will pick their battles carefully. We need to quit phrasing it like “the cops decided…” It’s not like the cops were left with any other choice in how to respond.

    Honestly who would blame them. I mean the way those people acted just because an officer was doing his job. Its the communitys fault. They need to start showing some respect and help officers when they can. Even if it means being a snitch. Otherwise I support the officers actions. Let them kill each other.

  25. Good for the officers in doing this, they are not getting any support from the crooked Mayor. It sounds like they have a widespread “Blue Flu” without losing paychecks, just show up to work, do as little as possible, and let the inmates run the asylum. #CopsLivesMatter
