You can’t make this stuff up. The idiocy of elected leaders is so idiotic you cannot tell if reports are The Onion or real. It must be comforting to the people of Baltimore that the man, the democrat they elected to replace their last corrupt mayor who is facing jail time for theft and extortion, when he makes such brilliant remarks such as,
“For those of you who want to continue to shoot and kill people of this city, we’re not going to tolerate it. We’re going to come after you, and we’re going to get you.”
Yowsa, that must come as a real shock to the killers that shoot people every day in Baltimore. I guess up until yesterday the mayor simply tolerated the shooting and the killing. Absolutely remarkable.
A couple of questions come to mind. How can there be so many shootings and killings in a town where guns are illegal? How can a man make such idiotic remarks. How can the people of Baltimore and Chicago and Philly and Newark among others for that matter, all towns that don’t allow guns but apparently tolerate shooters and killers having them, how can the people of those cities continue to elect the people who permit this type of behavior?
Amid a spike in violence, Baltimore Mayor Jack Young (D) asked residents to stop shooting each other to make sure hospitals have beds to treat patients infected with the coronavirus.
“I want to reiterate how completely unacceptable the level of violence is that we have seen recently,” Young said on Wednesday. He added, “We will not stand for mass shootings and an increase in crime.”
His comments come a day after seven people were shot on Tuesday night, and after the city reported its fifth confirmed case of the coronavirus.
He continued, “For those of you who want to continue to shoot and kill people of this city, we’re not going to tolerate it.”
“We’re going to come after you, and we’re going to get you,” he warned.
Young explained that the city could not “clog up our hospitals” with victims of shootings “because we’re going to need those beds” for people who are infected with the coronavirus.
“We cannot clog up our hospitals and their beds with people that are being shot senselessly because we’re going to need those beds for people infected with the coronavirus. And it could be your mother, your grandmother or one of your relatives. So take that into consideration.”
Young announced on Wednesday that he was declaring a state of emergency in the city over the spread of the coronavirus.
Officials say it is crucial that Americans stay home in an attempt to slow the spread of the coronavirus in the country so that the healthcare system is not overwhelmed by a sudden spike in cases and people who need medical attention.
