Amid concerns of a police slowdown, feds rolled up a pile of BGF gang members, Commissioner Anthony Batts announced arrests and indictments of a Southwest Baltimore drug crew he said was responsible for significant violence, and the homicide squad busted two men for allegedly strangling a 16-year-old girl to death in her home and lighting her body on fire. Though Baltimore violence continues at a record clip, it’s good to know there are cops still doing the hard work.
