Like any major city, the spread of anything highly contagious is potentially exponential. Population density makes it impossible to prevent. So, Baltimore is looking at some rough days ahead. With that in mind, the mayor has a message to the hoodlums. Stop shooting people, we need hospital beds.
[Baltimore Mayor Jack] Young said hospital beds are needed to treat positive COVID-19 patients and not for senseless violence. Seven people were shot Tuesday night in the Madison Park neighborhood, as Baltimore reported its fifth positive coronavirus case Wednesday.
“I want to reiterate how completely unacceptable the level of violence is that we have seen recently,” Young said. “We will not stand for mass shootings and an increase in crime.”
It’s a better approach than Mayor Rawlings-Blake, who wanted to give rioters room to destroy but if we’re being honest, why would the listen? With all the anti-gun laws you’ve imposed, they shouldn’t even have firearms. But Baltimore is more violent than El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala.
Heck, that’s right I said Heck, your last few city Mayors can’t manage to follow the law, why should anyone else? And this isn’t even a law, it’s a request.
“For those of you who want to continue to shoot and kill people of this city, we’re not going to tolerate it,” Young implored. “We’re going to come after you and we’re going to get you.”
Yup, that’ll do it. Shootings and murder in Baltimore are about to plummet. Which, technically, should be true if they lock down the city because of the
Pandemic Dempanic but then, why would the same people pay any attention to that either?
