Taking a page out of the O’Malley playbook, Sheila Dixon blames the feds for the recent explosion in violence (19 shootings in 6 hours)
The court documents also suggest, however, that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and city police knew more than a year ago what was driving the violence, arresting two key members after acting on tips from a confidential informant. On Monday, both Police Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld III and Mayor Sheila Dixon expressed frustration that the investigation apparently stalled.
Dixon noted on Wednesday that the federal investigation had been going on for two years.
“They’ve got to step up,” she said. “The weight can’t just be on our police.”
It’s not her fault. It’s not the Baltimore PD that knows where these people are and what they are doing, and it’s not the City State’s Attorney who can’t seem to get any of them convicted.
It’s probably George W. Bush’s or Bob Ehrlich’s fault.
