Forget It Jake, It's Baltimore

 Stacy McCain: He’s Not Making This Up, You Know

My podcast partner John Hoge calls attention to this story:
A Baltimore ex-gang member who uses graffiti to designate ‘no shoot zones’ to discourage gun violence around the city was shot in his back, neck and jaw on Wednesday.
‘I was shot three times,’ Tyree Moorehead, 46, told reporters on Wednesday. ‘A bullet went through my jaw, my neck and one is still in my back.’
He is known for creating over 250 ‘no shoot zones’ across Baltimore in places where someone was shot and killed to raise awareness for the issue.
A former gang member himself, Moorehead has admitted to shooting up to 20 people as a teenager before serving 11 years in jail following a shootout with police at age 15. . . .
There may be cities in America that are worse than Baltimore, but it’s a damned short list.

As we saw yesterday, among large cities, only New Orleans exceeds Baltimore's murder rate.
