Baltimore ‘Safe Streets’ Work Suspended After Police Find Illegal Guns, Drugs

The investigation began when police were called at approximately 2:26am by a man who had just been robbed at gun point by two men in a grey SUV. The SUV was later spotted by officers, near the 2300 block of E. Monument. Officers also observed men dart into the Safe Streets office located there.

Upon raiding the office, guns, heroine, cocaine, scales and cutting agents were among some of the illegal items discovered.

Police said a robbery investigation led them to the office, and two employees were among those arrested. The suspension sidelines the program’s work in East Baltimore at a time when gun violence has been spiking.

Safe Streets, a grant-funded program under the city’s Health Department, uses ex-felons in an effort to stem crime. The program has been lauded for keeping violence at a minimum in the four neighborhoods where it operates, and some officials have urged its replication across the city.

The program has had trouble in the past, with offices previously suspended in 2010 and 2013 amid criminal allegations against employees. It has also faced criticism over its recruiting practices.

The Mayor believes this program, using ex-cons, is going to continue to reduce violence in the streets. Somehow, this doesn’t quite add up. Armed robbery by employees sounds like a bit of escalation rather than reduction. This sound logic comes from the office that set up zones for rioting not long ago.

    Oh, I’d like to chuck him in the trash and if you ask me, “Why?”, I’ll saaaaaaaaaaaaayyyy….
    ‘Cause Barak Obama has a way of messing up the USA!

      Nah, your baloney is your panties, johnny boy. And your panties are in a twist. Your heads on backwards and you’re all fuckedup. You need to get some education, dummy

      • John Gillis

        Hey, kid. What are you doing on the big boy boards? Did you learn those widdle cuss words from your widdle brother? Aaaaaawwww, how cute! Seriously kid, if you can’t follow the conversation, don’t participate. It only makes you look stupider than we already know you are! ROTFLMAO!!!!

        • ROBERT WADDELL

          Stupider? Really? Who’s the ignorant one in that conversation? You are!

          • John Gillis

            Wow, obviously the best retort you could muster! And a second Disqus profile too! Who showed you how to do that, genius? How adorable!

          • Kent2012

            it would appear that we are dealing with number nuts and number nuts…

          • John Gillis

            In Name’s case, a golf club swing would have no effect on his nether regions. Or Waddell’s for that matter.

          • ROBERT WADDELL

            Go fuck yourself democrat!

          • John Gillis

            (face palm) Waddell, you don’t have a clue, do you? I’m 100% NRA, True Conservative Republican, and a firm believer in the Constitution. I don’t know where you’re getting your misinformation, but I strongly suspect you and “Name” are one and the same, given the quality of your posts, sentence structure and vitriol. If my suspicion is incorrect, then you may want to re-read my posts and make a more informed decision. However, I really don’t think I’m off the mark. I’ve checked your other posts, and you inject racist comments, have fewer upvotes than posts and nothing you say has a remote ring of intelligence. This all leads me to believe you are a communist posing as a conservative in an effort to make all conservatives look like idiots. Your reliance on foul language is a strong expression of your very weak mind. Cuss me out all you want. It doesn’t bother me because I know the source: a small, white, ne’er-do-well living in his own pissed off world with no professional or social prospects! I almost feel sorry for you, kid.

          • Texanbychance, Americanbybirth

            I have had my fun with Crap Apples and would rather enjoy having some fun here with Robert Waddell and the nameless one, I don’t believe old Crap Apples will want to start up his vulgar nonsense anymore…put it to an end. He asked me to stop pestering him, now that was really funny.
            Turning the tables is all these people know, and the only way they will stop behaving in such a manner. They had better not spark my interest in them, or I will shame them in the same way.

          • Texanbychance, Americanbybirth

            Very true, although you can always wring that damn birds neck.
            I didn’t really argue with him, after a while I just started making fun of him and treated him in the same manner as he treats others……makes him mad as hell, and I enjoy every second of tormenting that moron.

          • John Gillis

            I had my fun with Name as well. He only surfaces once in a while with me only because I slapped him down several times.

          • ROBERT WADDELL

            Well to me, you should be kicked out of the NRA! You have liberal tendencies!

            Before its all over we might have to pick up our guns and kill a bunch of these blind tone deaf losers. I have had it up to my eye balls. What happened to our government? The whole world is laughing at us! The new american dream is to irraticate those who wont essemulate on our home ground. They are letting illegals speak out about the menial jobs they say americans wont do. So what its not a mexicans call to even voice the opinion its not there country end of story. I think the best thing we could do is to stop the welfare system? Watch them run for the border and Im not talking Taco Bell. Stop paying taxes and watch Washington come around to a sane approach to government.

        name your an idiot!!

      • b4k9zp

        Typical of your hate speech and name calling at all times, nameless. You uprove with every post you make that you know you are a loser in every argument, for your name calling proves you know you have no factual evidence of any kind, or any possible/conceivable form of logic, thinking ability or reasoning ability, as always, to support your hate filled uneducated immature opinions.

        • Texanbychance, Americanbybirth

          Hey, you can’t really blame nameless for his actions…when all you ever hear are vulgar, demeaning and senseless rambling being spewed out at you, then that is all you know. I believe that it is his parent’s ass that needs a severe beating first, and then move on to the nameless one.

          • b4k9zp

            methinks you give nameless, by whatever moniker he uses, too much credit.

          • Texanbychance, Americanbybirth

            maybe, but I still think his parents are first on the list of getting their collective ass’s beat.

      The Safe Streets program has been in effect since 1992. It is funded by 5 million dollars every year since then thru the FBI. And it seems that each year the funding is added to another bill. You can blame Obama for other things but sorry, he didn’t do this one.

        Fair enough, Bonnie68, LOL.

          You really didn’t need to talk that way to me. That is what really bothers me about people today, they just hate everything and everybody.

          • John Gillis

            Robert is a leftist troll posing as a racist, rednecked pseudo-conservative. His goal is to make all conservatives look like moronic hatemongers by posting his putrid bile. I suspect he is the same poster who goes by “Name” and “Rx7pj”, among others.

          • Texanbychance, Americanbybirth

            Only people who actually make a difference matter in this world, the rest are just takers As we see all the time on this site. Just forget this asshole and move on, he is not worth a second thought.

      • b4k9zp

        Despite your fabrications, obama is responsible for it NOW! Even though he fraudulently occupies the post of president. as the president he is responsible for EVERYTHING that goes on on his watch. You and he don’t understand what Harry S.

            Even though the facts show that the Democrats are indeed the party of slavery, intolerance, hatred, bigotry, slavery, the KKK and Jim Crow laws, your use of obscenities, profanity and name calling only puts you in the same boat with them. You make no friends and create plenty of enemies by using the same tactics they do all the time.

          • b4k9zp

            using profanity and obscenities only proves that you know you are a loser, just like your buddies heroay, hitler, oingoboingo and crab apples.

        • b4k9zp

          Name calling is the sign of a weak mind, scott. It also puts you in the gutter with the likes of Rx7, crabapples, oingo boingo, and heroay, among others. Despicable people who prove their lack of intelligence and maturity by calling others names and using obscenities and profanity.

          • John Gillis

            And Robert Waddell and Name. I’ve opined at least 2 or 3 of those identities are the ones of the same pathetic little poster.

          • b4k9zp

            one wonders if “heroay”, “crab apples”, “oingo boingo”, “Robert Waddell”, “name”, and “Rx7pj” are not all one and the same person. Though Waddell (at least most of the time) appears to be less prone to using obscenity and profanity.

          • John Gillis

            True, but out of all the profiles, Waddell is most likely to use racial slurs. This is an attempt to prove all conservatives are racist by posing as a ‘conservative’ and dropping ‘N-bomgs’. I would not be surprised if it is one of Name’s tactics. 😉

          • b4k9zp

            There’s another one who calls himself “Scott” who prefers only to make racial slurs at all times

      That was a really racist remark. There a plenty of thugs that are white and other races. Come on Scott, be serious. There is so much more than that. Alot of mass murders were committed by whites. In fact I was going to say the last couple of mass murders, but I sat here and thought about it and I can’t remember a single mass murderer that was caused by a black person. I may be wrong. Now tell me who is worse!

      Scott, using that “n-word” doesn’t create any friends for your ideas. You can state the same thing without deliberately insulting anyone.

    Leftist liberal logic.

    • LeSellers

      You can’t use “liberal” and “logic” in the same sentence.

      “Liberal emotions”, yes. “Liberal fantasies”, okeh.

      But “liberal logic” simply does not exist.

      Mr. Magoo O’bama, will there ever be any Jobs?

    • Bonnie68

      This program has been in place since 1992 and every year it is added on to another bill that will be funded so the funds go to the states. I did not find any reference to using ex-cons in the documents for the program from the FBI.

      • disqus_C6fGXmCFNc

        idiot!!

      • b4k9zp

        And the current president is responsible for the funding supplied to this program under his watch. The article has the references, bonnie.

      • Athanasios1

        That is because every time a convict is released they get 4 new Social Security numbers like Obama had.

  • We have several major issues in the poor communities in this country. Undocumented guns, drugs and bad attitudes are to blame. All three issues are very difficult to fix. Since these young folks do not respect the law, no law is ever going to stop them. We simply cannot capture all the undocumented guns, but even if we got all of them that are out there now, as there are millions of undocumented guns all over the US and abroad. We are doing nothing to change attitudes nor are we curbing drug use. So where does that leave us? Nowhere, unless we change attitudes. We have to get it started but it is a very complex problem. The lack of jobs and education is sadly missing from more than one generation. But jobs are not coming to ghettos. Those blacks who have goner elsewhere are doing very much better because they have a different attitude about work ethic and they have the opportunity to succeed.

    • Texanbychance, Americanbybirth

      Say Jerry, just to let you know…as this is a fact…GUNS DON’T KILL PEOPLE…PEOPLE KILL PEOPLE WITH GUNS. If you took all the guns away they would find another way to kill each other. Same as the UK now, trying to outlaw bladed weapons. Including the knife you use in your kitchen, I guess they will just have to eat baby food from now on. Funny though, I can sharpen a butter knife to a razor sharp edge if I wanted too. And the forks, don’t forget the forks. Stabbing weapons aren’t they?

      Jerry, the guns aren’t to blame. It is the people who use guns, and a wide variety of other inanimate objects, and their hands, feet and fists, to kill other people. Some of this is due to the Roe V. Wade decision, for urdering children in the womb removes any respect for the sanctity of human life, for those who are born get the idea that they are no more than waste tissue, to be discarded by others at whim. Guns are the least of the problems, if in fact they are a problem at all. In fact, all gun control laws are rooted deeply in the “Black Codes” and “Jim Crow” laws originated by the Democratic party in the days when slavery was legal, and in the post War Between the States era when the Democratic party’s KKK’s primary mission was to keep blacks and other minorities from having guns.

      Drug use has always been a big problem, including alcohol. And we’ve tried prohibition, which has only caused the growth of organized criminal gangs that in many cases control city and state government here in the USA and elsewhere.

      Why are jobs not going to ghettos? Many reasons, including the ongoing violence which the black leadership does nothing to stop, and which makes it extremely risky for any entrepreneur to spend his money to create job providing work locations. Second, the lack of education caused by democratic party policies, which prohibit black parents from seeking out the best schools for their kids. And third, the fact that most black kids in the ghettos today are third and fourth and even fifth and sixth generation welfare recipients who have found that they can get government to provide them with good living and they don’t even have to pretend to work They know that they can do better on the streets.

      • b4k9zp,
        You elaborated more than I did and express the same sentiments I see as issues that prevent the turnaround of eh poor communities in this country. But what is happening is not new. It goes clear back to the Greeks and Romans who had similar problems. We know what happened to those civilizations. By now you would think that the liberals would have learned something. Not so. Same old mistakes. There are curs for these ills but this will get too long if I provide all of them at once. Let’s begin with education. This is going to have to be a major issue in the ghettos. As I said, changing attitudes is paramount. As you stated, attitude is that welfare is now several generations old. The change has to be that yes, we will help. But you have to do our part or we let you starve. No more freebies. That may sound cruel but it has to be that way. People have to take charge of their own success and stop relying on the government or drugs. ALL welfare offices should require a drug test for people on welfare of any kind.

      “We simply cannot capture all the undocumented guns, but even if we got
      all of them that are out there now, as there are millions of
      undocumented guns all over the US and abroad.”

      What is an “undocumented gun”?

      • saltysailor,
        I am amazed that you have to ask. There are millions of guns in this country that no one has any idea are out there. Guns have been traded around long before any sort of records was available. At age 78, there is no record of any gun transaction of any guns I have bought, sold or traded.

        • saltysailor

          So what? Why do you feel it’s the government’s business to know about any of the guns you’ve bought, sold or traded if you did it legally and you haven’t been engaging in criminal activity?

          • saltysailor,
            You do not get the point that millions of guns are out there with no government knowledge of them. How does anyone ever attempt to find them all? It is impossible A gun can be had for some illegal drugs in exchange. With that prospect, no gun control is possible. So, now what? Pay attention to the people who are the real cause of shootings.

          • saltysailor

            I get the point. I don’t care that the government doesn’t know where the guns in the hands of law abiding citizens are presently located.
            “How does anyone ever attempt to find them all?:
            Why do all of them have to be “found” by anyone?

            ” A gun can be had for some illegal drugs in exchange. With that prospect, no gun control is possible. So, now what?”

            Registration begets confiscation. Not that you obviously care.

            “Pay attention to the people who are the real cause of shootings.”

            Oh, but you do support punitive policies that affect the vast majority of people that obey laws. Duly noted.
            When has a black market ever been controlled?

          • saltysailor,
            I totally support the Second Amendment and I have no interest in restricting them at all. I do not have any plans for punitive efforts against people. What I do support is a major overhaul of mental issues so that people who need help can get it. Presently that is virtually impossible. There are many metal issues that lead to crimes that can be treated IF we get on top of the issues of the brain. I am working on that issue extensively. I just spent some time visiting with a neurosurgeon as well as psychiatrists and psychologists. Obviously anyone who has been determined to be insane need hospitalization. But most do not. We currently have restrictions on insane people owning guns. The VA issue of late did not fit the issue of insanity but of dementia instead.

    Just another way to fleece the working class out of their hard earned tax dollars. These programs never work, just cost more and more every time something goes wrong. You can’t fix the problem there by throwing more and more money at it. That’s just a retarded way of thinking. Who actually profits from this program, the people it is set up to help, or rather those in administration who collect a hefty paycheck for doing nothing? I think the latter.
    To make a change first you must make a mindset change, attitude change and value change. These have not been made by those living there and more than likely will never happen. They don’t want to change, they like the way they live. Otherwise they would have already changed, on their own and without outsider’s help or influence. Hard to feel pity for pity’s sake.

    Mayor doesn`t know the difference reduction and escalation

  • ROBERT WADDELL

    This is a perfect example of dumbass liberals running government! There is nothing common, about common sense! You can take a monkey out of the jungle, but you can’t take the jungle out of a monkey! This country has to get control back from the niggers! These stupid people have proven time and time again, that they cannot function in a civilized world! It never has happened, and it never will happen! I know there are exceptions to everything but the majority of niggers in America are worthless! When slavery was over, they should have gone back to where they came from! Obama was never elected, he was selected! He is a fraud! Socialists have infiltrated our congress, we must rid America of socialists, communists, and Islamic, America haters! I personally have nothing bad to say about latino’s, they work, they work their asses off, they are good people! There are bad apples, and all of them should follow the process of legally being given citizenship! Secure our borders, rid America of LGBT, ACLU, EPA, NEA, U.N. NAACP, ATF, NSA, FBI, FEC, let each state handle their business! No federal government! Get our country back! No Atheists allowed in our country founded on biblical principles!

    • Frank Hartzell

      take note,If the niggers were about anything at all,Why is Africa the most under developed country on the planet?Niggers can’t build only destroy.Why do all the other countries on the planet have to send food clothing and meds,to africa?BECAUSE if the ehite people don’t give it to them ,they will all die.

        Your hate speech only makes things worse. There are plenty of black men and women who have contributed far more to American life than you ever dreamed of doing. INcluding the 8000 or more black soldiers who fought for the Confederacy in the War Between the States.

        • Frank Hartzell

          glade you under stood what I said,and I have a right to a opion and to say it,just like they do.As for worse,It’s not good till I get to shoot a bunch of the niggers.[I grew up with a lot of black people,and I’m not raceist for real,but I am prejudice against stupidity,just look around and tell me where the sence is in all the shit they are destroying.]

          • b4k9zp

            hate speech and racism only puts you in the gutter.

          • Frank Hartzell

            true,but they don’t seem to understand common sence,so what can you do but slip from time to time.

  • Daniel W

    YOU KNOW BACK IN THE SIXTY’S Mayor John Lindsey started a program,using minorities that had prior arrest records>> making them police officers ???? .He put them into police uniforms,and put them to work in minority neighborhoods, thinking that there presence would reduce black on black crime .Problems arose when Police Officers recognized some of them as those that they had arrested before for FELONY CRIMES LIKE ROBBERY,BURGLARY ETC..
    Also they would work off duty pulling robberies with there newly obtained and here to fore legal firearms.Needless to say it didn’t work OUT .JUST LIKE IT DID’NT WORK IN Baltimore..Just a little story from the past

  • hangman57

    The mayor and Prosecutor are the ones who allowed the streets to go all to hell . Obama set the mood around the country to hate police .

    I am a retired Supervising Officer in a southern state with many, many years of experience. I supervised the worst of the worst as a Parole Officer. Putting felons in charge of such a program is not only STUPID, it is DANGEROUS, as you can see! In general, these people cannot be reliably depended upon to act in a lawful and civilized manner! This situation in Baltimore yielded results no different than you could expect ANYWHERE else! Obviously, the Mayor of Baltimore is an IDIOT!

    By their very nature, you would have to be completely brain dead the same people that are murdering, raping, robbing and assaulting your people I beginning to believe that maybe the guy who wrote the book “The Bell Curve got it right!
    Hate those that are trying to protect you from these thugs and love the thugs who keep you enslaved to their criminal activity!
    All I can say is “WOW!”
