The city of Baltimore is a crime and rat infested city, controlled by democrats. Not only is the city on track to have over 300 homicides for five consecutive years, the deputy commissioner and his wife were robbed at gunpoint on Friday night.
Local news station wbaltv reported:
Baltimore police confirmed Deputy Commissioner Daniel Murphy and his wife were robbed at gunpoint Friday night near Patterson Park by several men who were in an SUV.
City police said officers were called around 9 p.m. to the 2200 block of East Pratt Street to investigate a reported robbery.
Police said Murphy and his wife told investigators that a white SUV with four occupants pulled up to them as they were walking. Two men about 18 years old got out of the SUV and approached them. A handgun was displayed and the suspects demanded the victims’ property. A purse, wallet, cash and cellphones were taken, police said.
The suspects fled northbound on Patterson Park Avenue. The victims were not injured, and a police spokesman said both Murphy and his wife are OK.
Anyone with information about the crime is asked to call robbery detectives at 410-396-2422, Metro Crime Stoppers at 866-7LOCKUP, or text a tip to 443-902-4824.
Murphy is from New Orleans, and is in charge of the BPD’s Consent Decree compliance

Breitbart News reported on the number of homicides:
Baltimore homicides exceeded 300 each year from 2015 through 2018, and 2019 is on track to cross the 300 threshold for the fifth year in a row.
USA Today reported that the 342 Baltimore homicides in 2017 represented a “homicide rate of 56 per 100,000 people.” The homicide rate in Chicago was less than half of that, at “24 per 100,000.”
As of July 28, the Sun’s counter shows 191 Baltimore homicides for 2019, which means the city is well on its way to surpassing 300 homicides for the year.
At least five people were shot, three fatally, in Baltimore on July 27 alone. And on July 25, Breitbart News reported eight persons were shot in one night of Baltimore violence. One of the shooting victims succumbed to his wounds.
The violence, including surges in homicides, has been all-too-present in the years since Maryland implemented the Firearm Safety Act in 2013. That act put in place many of the left’s favorite gun controls, such as an “assault weapons” ban and “high capacity” magazine ban. It also implemented a fingerprinting/registration process for new handgun buyers.
The number of homicides in Baltimore was 211 for the year 2014, but has been over 300 every year since.
