While we have previously noted that while Philadelphia’s homicide rate increased after Jim Kenney replaced Michael Nutter as Mayor, things really began to take off after Larry Krasner became District Attorney. Now my good friend Robert Stacy McCain has noted how homicides took off in Baltimore after another George Soros-sponsored wokester, Marilyn Mosby, became Charm City’s prosecutor:
Homicides in the city increased dramatically after Mosby became the state’s attorney for Baltimore, and the crime wave she unleashed has reverberated across Maryland and into neighboring states, for the simple reason that failure to prosecute criminals in the city means they are free to commit crimes in other jurisdictions. Criminals from Baltimore that Mosby turned loose are perpetrating felonies throughout Maryland, as well as in Pennsylvania, Virginia, and the District of Columbia.
Mr Krasner has been trying to pass the responsibility for Philly’s surge in homicides on everything but himself, claiming that they’ve surged everywhere, but there’s a noticeable difference. In Baltimore, they surged in 2015, after Mrs Mosby took office in 2015, while in the City of Brotherly Love, there was an uptick, but not a huge one, certainly not the 63.03% increase seen when Mrs Mosby took office in Baltimore. Homicides actually dropped by a small amount, from 280 down to 277, in Mayor Jim Kenney’s first year, though they then pushed up to 315, a 13.72% jump, in 2017.
George Soros sent $1.45 million to Mr Krasner for his 2017 campaign, which he won, and then murders jumped to 353 his first year in office, then 356, then 499, and then to last year’s record shattering 562.
Baltimore’s population in 2015 was a guesstimated 622,851, which put Charm City’s homicide rate at a whopping 55.23 per 100,000 population. The city’s population has continued to shrink, and was down to 576,498 in 2021, which means that its 337 homicides, seven fewer than in 2015, results in an even higher 58.46 per 100,000 homicide rate. Philly’s gang-bangers have a lot of catching up to do to match Baltimore’s bloody streets!
Correlation does not equal causation, but it certainly is interesting how two Interstate 95 corridor cities both saw huge spikes in homicides after Soros-sponsorship put ‘progressive’ prosecutors in office.
