Black Lives Matter and their white social justice warrior allies unavailable for comment.
Timothy Smith was shaving the gray stubble from his face Monday afternoon when he heard the gunshots. He dropped the razor and sprinted downstairs and out the door.The 48-year-old said he’d been inside his Northeast Baltimore home only a moment to get ready for work, temporarily leaving three of his grandchildren riding their bikes in the street outside. His worst fears were assuaged — the pre-teens were OK — but in an alley nearby lay a man, shot to death in Baltimore’s 200th homicide this year.The city didn’t hit 200 homicides last year until Dec. 7, when police said 19-year-old Tymaine Sellman was gunned down in the 500 block of Edgewood St.A wave of killings the likes of which hasn’t been seen in four decades followed the unrest over the death of Freddie Gray, with more than 40 people killed in both May and July. So far in August, about one person has been killed per day in Baltimore. Police have partially blamed the influx of prescription drugs stolen from looted pharmacies for the violence.

What’s happening to this heroic Navy officer from the Chattanooga shooting will make your blood BOIL
At the time, Western Journalism wrote, Lt. Cmdr. White could face disciplinary action for violating policy about possessing a weapon on the facility that was supposedly a gun-free zone. The investigation into the attack is ongoing, and authorities will not know if White or the Marine hit the shooter until an autopsy and a ballistics report have been completed.
Ladies and gents, resulting from the text message I received yesterday, I can confirm that the United States Navy is bringing charges against Lt. Cmdr Timothy White for illegally discharging a firearm on federal property.

Five people were killed and at least 27 others have been hurt in shootings across Chicago since Friday evening.
The most recent fatal shooting happened early Sunday in the West Side Austin neighborhood.
Two males were driving in the 1600 block of North Cicero about 3:50 a.m. when a light-colored vehicle pulled up alongside and someone inside fired shots, police said.
One of the males was shot in his head and the other male was shot multiple times in his body, police said. Their ages were not immediately available.
Both were taken to Stroger Hospital, where they were pronounced dead, police said. The Cook County medical examiner’s office could not immediately confirm the fatalities.
Early Saturday, a 17-year-old boy dead in the Bridgeport neighborhood.
Richard Edwards and an 18-year-old man had left a party about 2:15 a.m. after they were “involved in an altercation,” according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
As they were driving in a van in the 700 block of West 35th Street, a light-colored SUV pulled up and someone inside opened fire, police said.
Edwards, of the 3900 block of South Lake Park, was shot in the armpit and was pronounced dead at the scene, authorities said.
The man was shot in the hand and shoulder and taken to Stroger Hospital, where his condition stabilized, police said.
As police investigated, a woman who said she was the teen’s mother was a half block away on Halsted, crying and pleading with officers to let her see her son’s body, which was covered by a sheet.
“I just want my child,” she said. “I need to touch him. I need to hold him. I need to feel him.”
Late Friday, a 27-year-old man was discovered fatally shot in the Little Village neighborhood on the Southwest Side.
Juan Ugalde was found unresponsive with a gunshot wound to the side of his face just before 10 p.m. in the 2300 block of South Washtenaw, authorities said. Ugalde, of the 2800 block of West 21st Street, was pronounced dead at the scene.
The weekend’s first shooting left 34-year-old Laurance Boyd dead Friday evening in the West Pullman neighborhood, authorities said.
Boyd was sitting in a parked vehicle about 6 p.m. in the 1300 block of West 122nd Street when a gunman walked up and fired multiple shots, police said. The shooter then ran off eastbound.
Edwards, of the 12700 of South May in Calumet Park, was shot twice in the back and taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he later died, officials said.
Early Saturday, five people were shot when gunfire erupted outside an Austin neighborhood party on the West Side.

NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -
Inside what looks like an ordinary storefront is the headquarters for a youth group. Community leaders are hoping it will help stop the rise in gang youth crime.
The NYPD has set its sights on dismantling the gangs police say are largely responsible for the shootings and murders in the city.
"This is a violent, violent bunch of guys -- they're all G Stone Crips," said Deputy Chief Kevin Catalina of the NYPD Gang Unit. "We took down associates of theirs a couple of weeks back. During that takedown, we pulled 11 guns off these guys."
While overall crime is down almost seven percent, shootings are up 7.1 percent so far this year. Murders are up 15.3 percent. Even with the increase, it's a much lower number than the 1980s and 1990s.
"For those of us who were here in the bad old days, when we had 2,000 or more murders a year, a lot or ordinary citizens were getting caught in those crossfires, it was a horrible, horrible time," Mayor Bill de Blasio said.
But Dr. Darrin Porcher, a former NYPD lieutenant, said there is cause for concern.
"Whenever there is violence in the community, it always creates a hazard for the common citizen," Porcher said. "So when we think in terms of this violence, bullets have no names. They land anywhere."
The majority of those involved in gang or crew shootings are under 21. Many are in their teens. That is why former gang member Shanduke McPhatter, now a community activist, established G.M.A.C.C. Teens at risk have new Apple computers to do their homework and that keeps them off the streets. A weight room to get them focused on health and to work out frustrations instead of doing it through violence.
"When you talk about what's happening in our communities, we're really predominantly dealing with cliques and crews," McPhatter Said. "These are young organizations who really have no leadership, who really have no goals, no history of what they're doing."
McPhatter said he doesn't have all the answers but he is hoping that his program can at least save some lives this summer.

President Barack Obama‘s decision not to deport some arrested illegal immigrants has enabled a crime wave — but no American or immigrant victims have been publicly identified, and GOP politicians have mostly remained mute.
Illegal aliens who have been released from custody between 2008 and mid-2011 have been charged with 16,226 subsequent crimes, including 19 murders, 142 sex crimes and thousands of drunk-driving offenses, drug-crimes and felonies, according to a new report from the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service.
“Rather than protect the American people he was elected to serve, President Obama has imposed a policy that allows thousands of illegal immigrants to be released into our communities,” said a statement from Rep. Lamar Smith, the chairman of the House judiciary committee.
The criminals “were in the government’s custody, were identified as illegal immigrants and then let go because this administration has refused to request the resources to hold them and deport them,” said Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies.Via: Daily Caller
