What about mur­ders?

Baltimore Sun - - FROM PAGE ONE - Alex Klosek

In the past sev­eral days, The Sun has pub­lished nu­mer­ous ar­ti­cles on al­leged po­lice mis­con­duct. These sto­ries seem take up the ma­jor­ity of the lead­ing head­lines. How­ever, there was just one line in an ar­ti­cle on a Bal­ti­more killing in­volv­ing a chef stat­ing that there had been 37 mur­ders in just 30 days in Bal­ti­more alone (“Bal­ti­more chef killed dur­ing rob­bery, de­spite putting his hands up,” Sept. 21).

Where is the out­rage by the var­i­ous city or­ga­ni­za­tions and city lead­ers over these num­bers? Why isn’t this story mak­ing front-page head­line news? I guess it’s not news­wor­thy enough, but al­leged cases of po­lice mis­con­duct are. They must sell more news­pa­pers. Mur­ders in Bal­ti­more are old news and seems no­body cares. What a shame.
