In the past 24 hours, the city recorded four shootings -- one that resulted in a homicide, the department tweeted.

Well, at least we know help is on the way.
They’ll defund parts of the police department.
That’ll get things beck to normal.
Yes, great news. Murder victims will be able to call a social worker and see that their killers receive the welfare benefits and psychiatric treatment that they need.
Everyone staying at home and such due to Covid - one needs to make up for lost time!
Maybe Disneyland will add a Homicideland themed attraction. Get in the ride and you’re being pursued, racing through the streets while everyone on the streets are throwing rocks and shooting at you. It could be popular with the gang and looter community.
exactly how many homicide? i didn’t see an absolute number but would like to
I read Chicago has it’s most violent/deadly weekend in 60 years during the BLM riots. Funny, I haven’t heard any “say his/her name” chants for those victims.
All major American cities ruled by democRATS and that jump on the bandwagon of defunding the police, will see an explosion of crime and murders.
Amateurs. Chicago has that in 10 minutes on a normal weekend. Baltimore and DC are like that two (In DC’s case, killers often come into DC from Prince Georges/Montgomery Counties for drug deals and kill each other as well as innocent people).
Baltimore killings seem to be “hometown homies” going at it as well as robbery killings.
Just think of it as less Democrat voters around for November’s election (excepting the innocent victims of their criminals).
The ‘Lets Pretend History Didn’t Happen’ crowd... Next on their list... ‘The Bunker’ and ‘Judgement at Nuremberg’.
the gangs/members that went looting outside their own areas made the mistake of tagging the buildings. That, or being recognized would do it.
California politicians are EXPERTS on "how to SINK the ship."
De-fund the police so you can raise that homicide rate to 500% or even a 1000%.
Democrat leadership... racing into OBLIVION!
I wonder how many of the murdered were black. Will they all get a festive funeral with a golden coffin too? Will anybody bother even learning their names? So much much for black lives matter. Perhaps the slogan should be “Leftist Narratives Matter”.
The increase in murders is a feature not a bug of leftism (i.e. Democrat) rule.
