New York City has a population 14 times that of Baltimore (8.6 million to 619,000).
Over the past three years, 70 percent black Baltimore has had more murders than New York City.
In 2017. In 2018. And in 2019.
Not per capita, not per 100,000, but in actual numbers.
Think about that for a moment.
Baltimore has a population of 619,000 people, of who 70 percent are black.
New York City has a population of 8.6 million people.
And Baltimore is far, far more dangerous.
