"Second deadly shooting in Baltimore's 'Nobody kill anybody' weekend"

Via Reddit: Going into the weekend, Baltimore activist Erricka Bridgeford had a simple hope and request: Nobody kill anybody for 72 hours.
It was too much to ask for in a city on pace to record its highest annual homicide toll, a place still reeling from the racially-charged riots that followed the 2015 death of Freddie Gray at the hands of police.

Some 40 hours into the grassroots ceasefire, a 24-year-old man was fatally shot. Within a few hours, a 37-year-old was also killed by gunshots.

Oh shit, I didn't realize no kill weekend was this weekend. My bad.

Only 2?

Somebody's not trying.

PS "the 2015 death of Freddie Gray at the hands of police"

There's your problem. Juries exonerated all 6 cops, but, according to Commie Nonsense Net, all the murders in Baltimore are the cops' fault.

You got to be thankful though, I mean even if it's just a week, some people get to live.

It's something.

They should try reverse psychology. They should have a Everybody Kill Somebody week. If enough politicians, ministers, and pundits started preaching about the need for each young person to kill at least one member of their peer group during the coming week, maybe murderers would be ostracized. Killers would be condemned for "acting white". It worth a shot.
