Mayor Martin O'Malley and Murder and Gangs in Baltimore

Statement on who is murdered in Baltimore (WJZ Dec 30, 2005 6:59 pm):

"Baltimore police point out that most murder victims had criminal records or were involved in the city's dangerous drug trade."

Minor point: The article also points out how Mayor Martin O'Malley promised to cut the number of murders in the city from 299 during 1999 to 175 by 2004, but instead there were 268 murders, a number 53% higher than he promised. The rate was declining prior to O'Malley taking office and continued down to 261 in 2000. Since then however, the number of murders has remained higher than when he first took office.
