Baltimore’s Top Cop Blames Stolen Prescription Drugs For Uptick In Violence [WATCH]


Viewer discretion is advised for the following video and post.

Police Commissioner Anthony Batts (pictured, second from left) has figured out why violence has spiked in Baltimore.

During a press conference on Wednesday, Baltimore’s top cop told reporters, “There’s enough narcotics on the streets of Baltimore to keep it intoxicated for a year.” (As you watch the video, notice the side-eye from Martin as he finishes the comment.)

He continued: 

“That amount of drugs has thrown off the balance on the streets of Baltimore. We’re seeing the repercussions of these crimes throughout the community. Individuals are getting high to a greater degree and at a greater pace than any time before. Criminals are selling stolen drugs. There are turf wars happening, which are leading to violence and shootings in our city.”

Later during the presser, Batts told reporters he is asking for “more federal prosecutors and more federal agents to move to the City of Baltimore to assist us in this battle against the violence.”

      Damn Wac Ben your’e showing your ignorance again. The black population in most of the cities that you named isn’t anywhere near 50%. You really need to get a life outside of your mother’s basement.

        U mad bro? Keep pretending to not know what the problem is in those areas. Of course fhe numbers aren’t 50 percent…which is why there’s a problem. We make up less than 14 percent of the entire country but in areas where there are higher concentrations of us things are horrible. Why is that?
