    Democrat policies have consequences.

    Baltimore killings soar to a level unseen in 43 years

    Baltimore reached a grim milestone on Friday, three months after riots erupted in response to the death of Freddie Gray in police custody: With 45 homicides in July, the city has seen more bloodshed in a single month than it has in 43 years.

    Police reported three deaths — two men shot Thursday and one on Friday. The men died at local hospitals.

    With their deaths, this year's homicides reached 189, far outpacing the 119 killings by July's end in 2014.

    Nonfatal shootings have soared to 366, compared to 200 by the same date last year. July's total was the worst since the city recorded 45 killings in August 1972, according to The Baltimore Sun.

    Which policies, specifically?

    Or is this another post hoc fallacy?

    No it is justified criticism of the horrendously failed urban policies caused by 50+ years of monolithic rule of the corrupt, incompetent Democratic Party. Baltimore is just one of most of the older northern cities ruined by the democrats with their endless pandering to crooked organized labor, the unmotivated urban poor, along with their several costly silver bullet redevelopment projects that ended up abject failures. It is time for these older northern cities to dump the Democratic Party and elect either moderate republicans, independents, and centrists to run city hall. Enough of the donkey dorks.
