New York City has a population 14 times that of Baltimore (8.6 million to 619,000).

Over the past two years, 70 percent black Baltimore has had more murders than New York City.

Not per capita, not per 100,000, but in actual numbers.

For New York City in 2018:

For New York City in 2017:

Does this comparison of hard numbers help provide evidence for supporting President Trump’s Tweets about Baltimore?

  1. I think President Trump’s tweet was spot on! From these numbers, Baltimore could be one of the worst cities for murder in the nation. I think that it could be considered a third world shithole with those numbers. Good heavens, that means it is safer to walk in the Big Apple than in Charm City!

  2. Proof that black and liberal run baltimorgue is the smelliest rat infested and most violent shithole city on the east coast …..great job cummings. Not to worry…apelanta is right on your back.

  3. In my medium-sized city, 28 people were murdered last month. Almost all New York Puerto Ricans shooting each other. I don’t know what you guys are so discriminatory about blacks for. I assure you, Hispanics do their share.

  4. I enjoy it when President Twitter gets all the Commies and Lefties all freaked out and shitting in their pants. It always made my day when con artist like Mad Maxine would be foaming at the mouth. The last election was fantastic. A complete fools parade. The next one looks even better with another bunch of blithering idiots ranting and raving about racism and promising everybody more shovel loads of free shit. This is like some kind of cruel joke.

    After years of living in New York I knew for a fact that to become a billionaire you had to be mob connected. I always knew from day one who ran New York. It was no big secret. Mr. Twitter was connected (construction and gambling). I told my best friend I would rather have a mobster in office than a Communist. The Demoncrats were running a fat ass drunken lesbian that could barely walk who’s coke head husband was a serial rapist. They planned to put this slime bucket in office. I voted for the mobster rather than the drunk. If my choice was between the drunken lesbian or a dog turd I would have voted for the turd.

    I don’t get to bent out of shape about what asshole sits on the throne. Nothing ever changes. Same old shit over and over. Washington is like Di$neyland. A bunch of psychos playing their “roles” and calling each other names but when the camera is gone their all in the same back room butt humping some twelve year old kid. America is dying and all the carnival clowns are fighting each other to see who will be giving the “last rights”.

    In a sane world, yes.

    In clown world, no.

    Because, in clown world America, things like “evidence” and “objecivity” are white constructs and are thus dismissed.

  9. Off topic Baltimore, on topic black-on-white crime.

    What’s that old saying? The devil is in the details. The first account gives a description of the executioner. The second omits a description but emphasizes what Jim in Jersey stresses:

    Practice! Practice! Practice!!!


    Police continue to search for a suspect in a shooting at a Myrtle Beach area bingo parlor that left a father and son dead.

    The Horry County Coroner’s Office confirmed Saturday that Stephen “Steve” Johnson Sr., 73, and Stephen “Sparky” Johnson Jr., 46, were killed in the shooting at Belle Terre Plaza on Friday night. They owned Waccamaw Bingo off U.S. Highway 501, according to Horry County Deputy Coroner Michelle McSpadden.

    Both men died of gunshot wounds, according to McSpadden.

    Horry County police are searching for the suspect — described as a black man wearing gray clothing and a white cloth covering his face — who fled after the shooting and attempted armed robbery of Waccamaw Bingo around 9:45 p.m. Friday.


    “He went straight behind the counter to try and save his dad and the money and to protect us,” York said of “Sparky” Johnson. She said the older owner had a gun of his own, and pulled it out to stop the would-be thief.

    She said his gun would not fire.

    This article claims that there were mass shootings at family-friendly events this past weekend. I only count one, at least only one I would’ve attended with family. By the way, it wasn’t held in the state of New York.

    Not nearly at the rate for people of thicker African blood. Good to see you post again, Chief P.O.N.T.I.A.C.

  15. New York City also has 14 times the police presence. it’s a police state. it definitely is possible to drive down violent crime by having a police state.

    it also helps to economically purge half the africans and push them out into other towns and even other states.

  16. Wait a minute! Obama gave Baltimorgue 1.8 Billion dollars to fix up the city! Where did all the money go? A lot of that money was for infrastructure, crime prevention and so on. I guess when the city is mostly black, most of that money just magically vanished.

    As someone else asked, with all that money, why didn’t someone think to call Orkin Pest Control to deal with all the rats? Oh….that’s right- they only deal with the four legged kind. The Black rats mostly go free. Or get space to destroy.

    It all gives new meaning to the expression, “throwing money down a rat hole.”

    Carry on, Baltimorgue. Just bidness as usual. Nothing to see here.

    ‘Shocking video shows man pull machete during road rage fight at gas station’

    COBB COUNTY, Ga. – A road rage victim says a man followed him into a gas station and attacked him with a machete. The attack was all captured on video at the Texaco station off Hurt Road in Cobb County.

    Joshua Evans told Channel 2’s Chris Jose he had just paid for his gas when the man approached him to exchange words.

    The victim said he punched the man in self-defense before the man walked back to grab something from his trunk. 

    “I hear a lady like, ‘He has a machete. He has a machete.’ So I’m trying run from him,” Evans said…

    It isn’t free — you have to buy a ticket; there is also a fee for parking (in a festival lot).

    Why make factually incorrect comments?

    I recall reading that the alleged shooter went over/through a fence around the venue.

    Just another incident making the case for DashCams. I bought my first one right after I had an accident with a black guy in my neighborhood.

    Fortunately, the white office believed my version of events, even if only because the laws of physics refused to yield to the lies the fella was telling in trying to get out of a citation.

    If I’d had a DashCam at the time maybe the citation would have included more charges. Good thing he didn’t have a machete.

    Stop ‘n’ frisk WORKS

    You’re right, it did — but at what cost? — how much does it cost to have enough police on the street to make a policy like that effective?

    Many people don’t think enough about how the presence of so many non-whites not only degrades the quality of life for everyone, especially in urban areas, but also drastically expands the size and power of government — this represents not only a financial cost, but also a loss of freedom.

    From AmRen’s Color of Crime, 2016:

    In 2014 in New York City, a black was 31 times more likely than a white to be arrested for murder, and a Hispanic was 12.4 times more likely. For the crime of “shooting”—defined as firing a bullet that hits someone—a black was 98.4 times more likely than a white to be arrested, and a Hispanic was 23.6 times more likely … If New York City were all white, the murder rate would drop by 91 percent, the robbery rate by 81 percent, and the shootings rate by 97 percent.

    Think about the enormous (financial) cost of that: police (note: in NYC, police can retire after only 20 years, getting very generous pension and health benefits), (criminal) courts, public defenders, prisons, probation officers, etc etc.

    All of that is due to people who are, in aggregate, not net contributors to society:

    1.8 billion from Obama in free gibs?

    I believe that’s around $3,000 per resident. I would think that might take care of a rat problem, even after the politicians skim off the top. How greedy are black politicians? Oh wait, they have no future time orientation, so getting reelected for actually improving the city doesn’t mean much. They can just steal it all. Besides, an ignorant populace is incapable of actually judging politicians by their records.

    Those people were very lucky the shooter was so incompetent. A rifle and he can only kill 3 of 15 according to the preliminary count?

    When police arrived, they knew right where to start to look, as everyone had heard the gunshots and turned to see the muzzle flashes. More of his incompetence.

    His only success belongs to others, who made the event gun free, so he had the time until police arrived.

    Agreed. Anyone with the slightest chance of interaction with them needs a cam of one form or the other.

  33. eah says:
    @Jim in Jersey

    It depends entirely on who you stop and frisk…

    Yes, I know — to their credit, many NYC officials, including Bloomberg, aggressively defended ‘stop and frisk’, including from (idiotic) claims that it was “racial profiling”:

    He also countered the racial charge by reading the names, ages and communities of 10 New Yorkers murdered in the city during the first week in June … “All 10 were young men. All 10 were black and Hispanic,” Bloomberg said after reading the names. “Sadly, 96 percent of shooting suspects are black and Latino

    But you still need a lot of cops on the street to make such a policy effective — and look again at the overwhelming stats in the AmRen study (also what Bloomberg cited): “If New York City were all white, the murder rate would drop by 91 percent, the robbery rate by 81 percent, and the shootings rate by 97 percent” — if NYC had a white super-majority, as it used to, you could probably immediately cut the police, criminal courts, prisons, etc by at least half — if not significantly more.

    Actually, (((mafia))) is not much better than (((communists))) running the show.

    From (((Ron Unz))): American Pravda: The Power of Organized Crime:

    I once decided to conduct a simple thought-experiment by mentally listing the dozen most prominent figures that casually came to my mind from the Gangster Era. Al Capone was obviously the most infamous, followed by Lucky Luciano, Meyer Lansky, and Bugsy Siegel. After that came a number of somewhat lesser figures: Frank Costello, Legs Diamond, Lepke Buchalter, Dutch Schultz, Bugsy Moran, Johnny Torrio, Hymie Weiss, and Arnold Rothstein. I had never studied American crime history so my list was vague and impressionistic, but I was surprised to realize that a milieu I’d always regarded as overwhelmingly Italian was actually mostly Jewish, suggesting that I had accepted the misleading headlines of a historical narrative without focusing upon its actual contents.

    Have we not all done the same?

    They are (((one))) and the (((same))).

    As you would expect in a city 14 times the size.

    I think we should look into this “economically purge” approach to the demographic problem. Seems more effective than marches. Can’t argue with the numbers.

    Yep, I think you’re on to something there. Look at the drug cartels in Mexico. I would suggest that they work with and for those connected to or in the Mexican government. And who runs the government? It ain’t the Amish. The same applies to the US.
