Record Violence Continues

Aug 3, 2015

On the heels of July's 45 homicides -- a 43 year high -- August is off to an alarming start with 11 people shot, two fatally, over the weekend. We take a look at Baltimore's disjointed response to the continuing violence, including: Interim Commissioner Kevin Davis's restructuring of the police department, and the revelation that Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby withheld information from the Baltimore Homicide Review Commission.  Our guests: WYPR Senior News Analyst Fraser Smith; City Councilman Carl Stokes; and Justin Fenton, crime reporter for the Baltimore Sun.
