Bongino: Baltimore, Maryland has one of the highest crime rates in the United States. It also is a city that has endured the most liberal leadership, similar to other crime-stricken areas such as Chicago, Detroit and Los Angeles. As recently as September, in the span of only 16 hours seven people were shot in various neighborhoods throughout Baltimore.
Unfortunately, that scenario is not uncommon in the area. According to the Baltimore Sun, at least 296 people have been murdered so far in the Baltimore area this year. Baltimore’s mayor, Bernard “Jack” Young said during his weekly press conference that “there’s not any lack of leadership of my part.” He continued, “that’s what people need to understand. I’m not committing the murders. The police commissioner is not committing it. The council is not committing it. So how can you fault leadership?” more here
