A month ago, I went to Maryland to see my ailing mother. I learned from friends that Baltimore has a terrible police shortage. They need 1100 but only have 500 officers. It's happening because the political class is failing to let the police do their job. Well. something has to give, because local businesses are threatening to hold back money. This is the story:
More than three dozen businesses in Baltimore’s Fells Point are threatening to withhold tax and permit payments amid "chaos and lawlessness" that they say has been "going on for far too long," according to local reports.
The coalition of 37 businesses sent a letter Tuesday to officials, including the mayor, council president, police commissioner and state’s attorney, complaining about illegal alcohol and drug sales, public drinking, poor trash pickup and parking enforcement, and other problems, according to several local reports.
They are calling for Baltimore officials to restore "basic and essential municipal services." "[W]e are fed up and frustrated, and we now realize that nothing will change unless we demand action," the letter states, according to local affiliate FOX Baltimore. ..............
They plan to hold their taxes back until the city does its job. Maybe this is the start of a national movement that will finally bring city Democrats to their senses............To Read More....
My Take - "Bring city Democrats to their senses". He's kidding right? You can't fix stupid, and the stupid have no sense, and Baltimore's politicians are not only stupid they're surrounded by people who are even more stupid than they. How do I know that? They keep electing them. How stupid is that? Baltimore is doomed, as are a lot of major cities in the world. Black Lives Matter, Antifa, Muslim jihadists and eco-freaks are now in charge, and the sane and intelligent are leaving. And they're never coming back! Companies and individuals have found they don't need to be located in a major metropolitan area to work or do business. New York City, San Fransisco, Los Angeles, and all the other Democrat run crap holes are going down the tubes, and eventually they'll all look like Detroit. Run down, torn down, violent and unsafe for anyone, including the criminals.
