Baltimore Youth Killed In Record Numbers

An open letter from a concerned citizen

Dear Health Commissioner Oxiris Barbot and Mayor Stephanie Rawlings Blake:

I am a Baltimore city resident and I pay taxes.

Something this year has me very concerned, that is the increase in homicide deaths of young people 18 and 19 years old.  In 2009 and 2010 there were 16 homicides in that group, in 2011 only 10.   This year by November 18 there have been 21 young people in that age group brutally killed in Baltimore City and the year isn't over yet.

 It is clear to me that circumstances for this group of teens have changed for the worse.  I worry that some of these teens have suddenly become homeless on their 18th birthday because their parents lose their welfare, foodstamps, housing and other government benefits and their parents don't see the point in keeping these new adults in their homes.

And we all know that some of these troubled kids can't find any legal job that is lucrative enough to support even a subsistence lifestyle.  Perhaps you can tell me what has changed recently to tell me why this group suddenly start being killed in record numbers and what you plan to do about it, if anything?

I care, but I doubt you or anyone else does.   Years from now the CDC might release the results of some study that will show the same results but by that time many more will have died.

I'd rather have you get out in front of this problem right now, if you can fit it into your busy schedule.

Thank you,

To all those who willfully, deliberately and routinely violate the civil rights of law abiding American Citizens; Yes, you're powerful. Sure, you're everywhere. But this is still America, and the Constitution of the United States Of America still reigns supreme as the law of the land. The Baltimore Spectator will vigorously and aggressively defend against any and all attempts at spying and suppression. Let it be known to all that we are already aware of the regular monitoring and shadowing attempts. There is nothing to hide, but cross the line and there will be hell to pay.

In the end, efforts to impinge upon the freedoms of the people will ultimately fail. Some of us may get taken out in the ongoing battle for true and lasting freedom, but as I've said many times before, and will say till the day I die or get taken out by you goons, THERE ARE MORE OF US, THAN THERE ARE OF YOU.
