Today with Dr. Kaye: Baltimore violence, crime prevention resources and witness protection
BALTIMORE, MD (WEAA) — Marilyn Mosby, the 25th State’s Attorney for Baltimore City, joins Dr. Kaye to discuss Baltimore gun violence, crime prevention resources and witness and victim services.
“For the first time, the mayor, the commissioner, myself, we agree that we need to focus our time and our attention on violent individuals, victim crimes…. I want police responding to 14-year-olds that are being shot in broad daylight not individuals who are smoking weed", Mosby shares.
The State’s Attorney says for far too long, Baltimore has utilized resources on low level offenses that have nothing to do with public safety.
“We can’t continue to do the same thing and expect different results, “ Mosby says.
During the discussion, Mosby reveals she was caught in the middle of shooting Monday night while en route to pick up her child.
“I live in the heart of west Baltimore, I don’t have to turn on the news and open up the newspaper to see the violence plaguing my community, all I have to do is open up the door.”
