Baltimore’s Deadliest Year – 2015 Record Breaking 344 Murders, 900 People Shot…

It would appear Mayor Stephanie “space-to-destroy” Rawlings-Blake ended up with more human destruction than originally intended; or, perhaps not.

BALTIMORE SUN – 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.  (read more)

    It is disgusting and shameful what has happened to my city. I lived in the city until ‘2000, til the gangs and hordes of illegals started pouring in. O’malley served as mayor from 1999 till 2007. Is it any wonder the chaos he created? Simply horrifying.

      Undoubtedly the “Teflon Leprechaun” unleashed all sorts of chaos upon Baltimore, but he was a piker in comparison to his predecessor Kurt “Joke” Schmoke. Under this man, Baltimore routinely had 300+ murders every year. I could tell you some tales about this man, but one that stands out besides his solution to the high homicide rate (he advocated the legalization of drugs) was him and his idiotic police commissioner, “TV” Thomas Frazier (who ironically became the police chief of Oakland after Anthony Batts left for Baltimore) ordering officers to take drug addicts to set up hospitals and centers to get their drugs tested in response to a bad batch of heroin that had made its way on the streets from Philadelphia (where I was living at the time).

      The last mayor worth anything was Schaefer, and he was a center-right Democrat who was known for checking the bars to make sure city workers weren’t slacking off and his distain for the likes of Clinton, O’Malley, and Glendening (also known as “Spendening”).

        I heard that Chicago’s murder rate only went down when the definition was changed to make many of them assaults. When the assault victim died, the police decided not to prosecute the assailant, because the victim “chose” not to press charges.

      Btw, Martin O’Malley would have been a political afterthought if it weren’t for SRB convincing her father to endorse him for mayor and pimp him around town to black voters.

    Perfect example of how Black Lives Matter is totally and completely fraudulent.

    They complain over what appears to be a marginal complaint at best, and get the cops to stand down, then their agitation gets everyone riled up and MORE black people die as a result.

    They should really change their name to something like We Want More Black Death, because that is apparently what they’re achieving.

    344, 400+, Those numbers mean nothing when there is more than 300,000 black abortions each year. Give the Democrats a few more years and the black race will be destroyed.

      You’re dreaming. Even with abortion, blacks outbreed whites – they’re paid bonuses with few questions and have the extra time welfare affords.

      The homicide rate in Chicago is not 38.4 / 100,000. It’s about 18.5. Still twice that of Houston, though.

        Just found this CTH thread. DNAInfo says total # of murders in Chicago (not necessarily gun-related) in 2015 was 484. The 2015 population of Chicago is probably slightly higher than the 2014 value of 2,722,389, so let’s say 2,723,000. That gives a murder rate of 17.7/100,000, very close to your figure Sentient.

        Baltimore had 344 murders. If the 2015 population of Baltimore is 623,000 (slightly higher than the 2014 value), then the murder rate is an astounding 55.2/100,000. #spacetokill

    So the standoff in Oregon is being called a “terrorist threat” but these “folks” in Baltimore are showing their distrust in cops? Amazing when you get a group of people who are armed and peaceful stating that Ranchers have served their time and need to be left alone. then you have Baltimore, Ferguson, the nightly shootings in Chicago…. the federal government is now an enemy of law abiding citizens and the clowns with the bricks are being left alone

    WARNING: The Surgeon General has determined that Democrats may be hazardous to your health. 😉

    “More people are getting killed in Philadelphia, and fewer of those killings are getting solved.
    Those are the takeaways from crime data for 2015: After two years of historically low homicide numbers, Philadelphia – like many other U.S. cities – saw its murder rate climb. There were 277 murders here last year, a 12 percent increase from 2014.”

    “The Chicago Police Department’s end-of-year crime statistics showed 468 people were murdered in Chicago in 2015 compared to 416 in 2014, a 12.5 percent jump. There were 2,900 shootings in 2015 — up 13 percent from 2014 and up 29 percent since 2013.”

    “The teen was one of 145 homicide victims in Milwaukee in 2015 — the city’s deadliest year in recent memory. The year ended with a 69% increase in the number of homicide victims compared with 2014, according to preliminary data.”

    NYC: “Homicides rose from 333 in 2014 to 350 in 2015.”

    LA: “But end-of-the-year violent crime figures all showed increases: Police reported 280 homicides, up 10.2% from last year, and 1,097 shooting victims, a 12.6% increase.”

    St Louis: 187 homicides up from 159 in 2014
