Black Lives Don't Matter

... if it's Blacks killing Blacks.

Five people were killed and as many as six others were injured during shootings Friday night and Saturday in Baltimore, police said.

Baltimore City police are operating on high alert after a spate of violence.

"The reality is over the last five days, our guys have taken off 10 guns in separate situations, our guys have served search warrants on North Avenue and taken off some bad characters there. We had a pursuit today around Mondawmin. The officers did a good job in making arrests out there. And earlier this week, unfortunately, in the Eastern (District), where we have some traditional gang violence, five were shot and officers engaged and took two of those guys to jail, so there's a consistent pattern of officers doing a good job out here," Police Commissioner Anthony Batts said.

The official start of summertime in Chicago began violently, with six people dead and at least 26 others injured in shootings across the city.

Among those injured was a 4-year-old girl, identified by family as Jacele Johnson, who was shot in the head while sitting inside a car outside of a prom party Friday evening. The incident happened at about 8 p.m. near West 70th and South Justine streets in the West Englewood neighborhood.
