Today at Hotair we see that CBS has provided proof that Donald Trump’s assertions about Baltimore

are in fact true

Charm City ended 2018 with a total of 309 murders, according to the Baltimore Police Department. So far in 2019, police report 196 homicides have occurred. Using the U.S. Census Bureau’s July 2018 population estimate for the city of 602,495, Baltimore’s 2018 murder rate is 51.3 murders per 100,000 residents.

The article ends with two simple words. CLAIM: TRUE.

The real significance of this piece is that it is NOT from CBS news, but from CBS Baltimore the local affiliate.

What does this mean, it means DaTechGuy’s 3rd law of Media outrage is at work.

The MSM’s elevation and continued classification of any story as Nationally Newsworthy rather than only of local interest is in direct correlation to said story’s current ability to affirm any current Democrat/Liberal/Media meme/talking point, particularly on the subject of race or sexuality.

Because of the confirmation of the White House assertion is diametrically opposed to the Democrat/Liberal/Media meme/talking points concerning the president they can not be safely reported on the national level.  They can however be safely reported on the local level by CBS Baltimore because the people in Baltimore already know how dangerous their city.

More importantly it allows them CBS to counter any claim they that they are hiding the fact by stating they in fact covered the story, they just did so without raising said coverage to national level, after all there are only so many minutes in a CBS news broadcast you know.

If I was the White House I’d have President Trump shout from the rooftops that CBS has confirmed their claims and if I was his campaign I’d have a bunch of blogs along with a bunch of people on twitter not only tweeting out CBS CONFIRMS WHITE HOUSE ASSERTION ON BALTIMORE, but I’d have a dedicated crew of bloggers searing the local CBS, NBC, ABC and PBS affiliates for stories like this that get burred on the local level.

But that’s just me.

…but it is refreshing an official give genuine public indignation over a barbaric act done against a family he knows.

As for the jury pool, I listened to them broadcast what the mayor said and I’m positive it will not mess with the pool seriously. Why, because they played the clip 5 times on the radio and I couldn’t understand a word he was saying. If it wasn’t for the papers and the supporting commentary by the hosts I still wouldn’t know what he was talking about.

As for this article:

We all poke fun at Mayor Tom Menino for his mumbles. Now, he’s taking heat for making a very blunt and clear statement.

Sorry guys, the statement was blunt but it sure wasn’t clear.

Does the city employ a translator to convert Menino into english? Is there an Menino to English/ English to Menino dictionary?

And trouble at Romano’s too…

I mentioned the drug bust yesterday but it turns out that Romano’s 7 doors down is also having troubles:

Romano’s Market at 138 Harvard St. had never been robbed before this week, according to owner Mike Romano.

But police arrested a would-be robber on Thursday afternoon and another person tried and failed to rob the market on Wednesday, he said.

“This is the first time it’s ever happened,” he said. “We’ve had break-ins before, but we’ve never had anyone attempt to rob us or anything. It happened two days in a row and it kind of concerns me.”

If they are going after Mike that is a very bad move on their part, he is from a different generation and his son’s are not going to take kindly to it, particularly the one just back from Iraq and Gitmo. Then again the employees didn’t care for it either to wit:

A female cashier chased a would-be robber out of the store and across the Arthur DiTommaso Memorial Bridge before he outran her Thursday about 1:25 p.m., Romano said.

“She couldn’t catch him, he was too fast,” Romano said.

That would likely be Katey. The guy is very lucky that the Cops caught him and she didn’t.

All of this happening within a 72 hour period does not bode well for my neighborhood.
