“We know who’s committing these crimes — the same people committing the shootings last year and the year before,” Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake told baltimoresun.com. “It’s repeat violent offenders, and we’re determined to make sure we’re making it very difficult for them to continue to pursue those dangerous activities in Baltimore.” By surveillance operations, car stops and search warrants, rather than, say, locking up people who shoot people. Oh no, wait. “Rawlings-Blake reiterated on Monday a desire to pursue legislation to strengthen penalties for people caught with illegal guns.” Would that be in addition to stiffer penalties for people who shoot people illegally? Meanwhile, did I really hear that the guns on display are “similar” to the ones the cops confiscated? Naw. C’mon. Really?
