    Princess Anne police have charged D'Asia R. Perry, of Baltimore, and Joy M. Shuford, of Owings Mills, both 19, with multiple offenses, including second-degree arson and committing a hate crime, the Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office said. ... The damaged sign is located in a shopping center on Carole Lane in Princess Anne, and is owned by Robert Wink, the fire marshal's office said. Jamie Wink, Wink's son, who helps run the family store, Wink's Sporting Goods, said the sign has been outside the shop since September. It's been set on fire once before and stolen twice. But he said...

    The opening of any new hotel carries a certain amount of optimism and symbolism. That went double for the March debut of Sagamore Pendry, the latest high-end hotel to open in Baltimore. It wasn’t just the luxurious look of the 128-room hotel—complete with a steakhouse, whiskey bar, outdoor pool, and nods to horse racing, a reference to Maryland’s history of raising thoroughbreds—that made news. The building, once featured on the television show Homicide, part of the string of true-crime dramas that have given many an unsavory impression of the city, has a certain symbolic resonance, and its renovation is a...

    Judge Bredar slaps down Sessions' pleas -- as the Ferguson effect grabs hold Matthew Vadum image An Obama-appointed judge is moving forward with a federal takeover of the Baltimore, Md. police department that critics say will boost crime there by handcuffing police officers in the increasingly violent city. The pleas of U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions fell on deaf ears as U.S. District Judge James K. Bredar, appointed by President Obama in 2010, denied a request from Sessions to hold off on enforcing the consent decree drafted by cop-haters for at least 30 days so the new Trump administration could...

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued a statement Friday raising concerns over a consent decree to impose federal monitoring of the Baltimore Police Department.(snip)The DOJ, now under Trump-appointee Sessions, had sought to delay or modify the 227-page decree, which sets out extensive regulations of police conduct and calls for a “Community Oversight Taskforce” to monitor officers throughout Baltimore. U.S. District Judge James Bredar, however, refused to deviate from the agreement that Sessions described, in his statement, as “negotiated during a rushed process by the previous administration and signed only days before they left office.”Sessions pointed to the so-called “Ferguson effect”...

    WBAL Baltimore ^ | April 5, 2017 | Deborah Weiner
    Many people feel Baltimore has a real image problem. A group is trying to change that image and held a town hall Tuesday in an effort to keep families in Baltimore. Federal population estimates indicate Baltimore’s population may fall to a 100-year low. So, the idea is to reverse middle class flight, and that is the work of the Downtown Baltimore Family Alliance. Crime and public safety are among the top reasons families cite when choosing to move away from Baltimore City. Advocates said that when families leave it poses a serious threat to the local economy and undermines the...

    Having lived in three of the nation’s most dangerous cities – Detroit, Baltimore and a short stint in Chicago – I’ve seen the remains of some once-great American metropolises. Outside of pockets (the north side of Chicago, Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, the small, surging sections of downtown Detroit among them), their better days were behind them by the time I came along. But I could see the shells of what once was. Still, seeing the aftermath and living through the decline are two entirely different experiences. Until a time machine is invented, I never will fully know more than the second-hand...

    Baltimore Sun ^ | March 29, 2017
    Reaction to Sunday's column on Baltimore's distressing loss in population ranged from genuine empathy to snarky glee. Some citizens took the opportunity to complain about city life: A woman in Roland Park said she has a rat problem and that her water has been brown for months. I told her to get on her landlord about the rats and her City Council rep about the water — and to call me if she can't get no satisfaction. It's a depressing development, the city losing some 6,700 residents during the 12 months that ended in July 2016. After years when the...
  • Baltimore Democrat mayor vetoes $15 an hour minimum wage

    American Thinker ^ | 03/27/2017 | Rick Moran
    Baltimore's Democratic Mayor Catherine Pugh has vetoed a bill that would have raised the city's minimum wage to $15 an hour. The unprecedented veto of a "Fight for 15" wage bill by a Democrat points to the growing evidence from other cities that the economic damage caused by a $15 an hour minimum isn't worth the job losses and economic slowdown that results from the increase. Daily Caller: The council meets April 3 and could overturn the Mayor’s veto with support from 12 of the 15 members. It is unlikely that the council will veto the Mayor’s decision, with the Baltimore Sun reporting that the...

    U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says it possesses a “limited amount” of 9mm bullets for agents in the field as well as for training purposes, and it is rationing its ammunition based on internal requests until it can award a new contract. [ ] The apparent role poor planning, or another agenda, played in the issue came to light when ICE said it would have run out of 9mm ammo by June 2017 in the absence of a modified contract with its supplier, Vista Outdoor Inc. So, the agency last month approved a $363,307 ceiling increase to contract No. HSCEMS-11-D-00002....
  • 14 Freeloaders ARRESTED for $16 MILLION in Welfare Fraud (Muslims - Baltimore)

    Freedom Daily ^ | Sept 2016 | staff
    Welfare fraud is a bigger problem than liberals want you to believe. Food Stamp benefits costed $74.1 billion in 2014 and supplied roughly 46.5 million Americans with benefits, which comes out to an average of $125.35 for each person per month in food assistance. Even a fraud rate of under 5% amounts to billions in wasted funds. The most popular method of food stamp fraud isn’t fraudulently claiming benefits, it’s recipients trading in their cards for a fraction of their face value for cash. Luckily, the government has actually made some wise steps in counteracting that kind of fraud. Back...

    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Baltimore is averaging a murder a day in 2017. And there seems to be no end in sight to the bloodshed. While there’s progress between police and the community, the number of killing continues to soar. In some parts of Baltimore, the number of killings is out of control. The city has seen more than one murder every day this year.“Back in the 90s, I could sit in my living room with the door open and wouldn’t have to worry about somebody running through the kill me or nothing,” says Jason Brooks, who’s lived in west Baltimore...

    A Baltimore Orioles executive says he'd prefer President Trump not throw out a first pitch at Camden Yards without first apologizing for statements that could be viewed as problematic "from a race, ethnicity, religious, gender, disability" standpoint.   John Angelos, son of owner Peter Angelos and the Orioles' executive vice president and chief operating officer, said on a Baltimore-based podcast that divisive rhetoric and actions during Trump's campaign and since his swearing-in require that the president re-double efforts to embrace all members of the community.

In a 10-4 ruling, the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Va., said the guns banned under Maryland's law aren't protected by the Second Amendment.

    FULL TITLE: Shocking moment 18-year-old serial offender is shot dead a fraction of a second after pointing his gun at a cop This is the shocking moment a Baltimore teenager fleeing a police officer spins and points his gun at the cop - only to be shot dead. The bodycam footage, released by Baltimore Police Department, came at the end of a chase between Detective David Kincaid Jr and Curtis Deal, 18, in West Baltimore on Tuesday. Police say Deal, who was out on $250,000 bond, jumped out of a car Kincaid was following on Tuesday and ran. Kincaid cut...

    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — After being robbed a handful of times in the past few months, one Baltimore coffee shop is no longer accepting cash to stop the robberies and keep their staff safe. Nowadays, many people don’t carry cash in their wallets day-to-day, and at Park Cafe in Bolton Hill, cash payments are no longer on the menu. “We’re not going to accept cash anymore,” said Park Cafe & Coffee owner David Hart. “I’m going to take that out of the equation.” Park Cafe was robbed five times from October to January. While the armed suspect is now behind bars,...

Twenty-six people have been killed in the year's first 25 days. Police Commissioner Kevin Davis tried to assure residents that the department is doing everything it can, allocating more officers to patrol and redeploying gang and other special units to areas of the city where violence is the worst.
