Baltimore Sees Deadliest Month Since 1999 After Nine Weekend Murders
Tune in tonight on "Hannity" at 10p/1a ET as Sean talks to a Baltimore police officer, a city councilman and Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke.
The bloodshed in Baltimore worsened over the Memorial Day weekend, with 28 reported shootings and nine fatalities.
There have now been 35 murders this month in Baltimore, the highest monthly total since 1999.
Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake called it "disheartening" to see the level of violence go up.
Rod Wheeler, a former D.C. homicide investigator, reacted today, saying that the surge in violence is not related to the death of Freddie Gray.
"Crime hasn't dissipated or slowed down at all since the death of Freddie Gray. The same amount of crime we have today we had before the riots. which shows the riots had nothing to do with the death of Freddie Gray," said Wheeler.
He criticized Rawlings-Blake for her handling of the police department since Gray's death, saying her actions have had a "negative effect" on Baltimore police officers.
"The Kelly File" reported last week on the low morale among police officers in the city, with some saying that officers are being less aggressive since six cops were indicted in Gray's death.
