On average blacks commit 60% of America’s murders, so for the 26 murdered in Baltimore in the last 30 days, that would be around at least 15.6, or 3.9 per week. It could be a little less, or a lot more, up the full 6.5 a week.
Excerpted from The Daily Caller: The city of Baltimore, Md. has been home to roughly two dozen murders since police arrested Freddie Gray on April 12 for possession of an illegal switchblade.
At some point while police were transporting Gray in a police van, he fell into a coma. Police then took the 25-year-old man to a trauma center, where he died 10 days later.
Meanwhile, searchable data from The Baltimore Sun shows that 26 homicides have occurred in the city limits of Baltimore during the last 30 days — or since April 9.
The cause of death in one murder case was blunt force, police say. The victim in that case was two-year-old Tyleah Fenwick, according to local NBC station WBAL-TV.
Billy Vines, 59, and Jorvon Beatty, 23, died from stab wounds. Vines was killed in the wee hours of April 12 by his son at the home they shared not far from Oriole Park at Camden Yards. Beatty met his fate in a fight outside a homeless center on May 4.
The body of Nicole Torain, 34, was discovered in a trash incinerator on April 22. The cause of her death is unknown, but police have ruled it a homicide.
All the rest of Baltimore’s 26 murders in the last 30 days have resulted from shootings.
