More Bad News From “Charm City”

posted on July 20, 2015

Baltimore, where violent crime is running rampant, is suspending a local anti-crime program after police seized guns and other contraband from one of the program’s offices, according to a Washington Times report.

The “Safe Streets” program employs ex-felons who have "street creds" in an effort to reduce shootings and build rapport with youth. It has apparently enjoyed some success; however, in 2010 the FBI tied one of the program’s sites to a local gang, and in 2013 the city temporarily suspended the program due to allegation of criminal activities by its employees.

Among those arrested this week on gun and narcotics charges is a man previously sentenced to 12 years in prison on narcotics charges, another twice acquitted of murder, and two others arrested on robbery and assault charges in the incident that led police to investigate Safe Streets this time.
