Baltimore City Councilman Isaac "Yitzy" Schleifer joined C4 and Bryan Nehman on Monday morning to talk about crime in Baltimore after Gov. Larry Hogan's "refund the police" comments on Oct. 15, while revealing his $150 million initiative to address crime. "When you say 'refund the police,' you're indicating they were defunded," Schleifer said speaking specifically on Baltimore. In Baltimore city, the numbers don't lie. There have been increases in the police department.
Schleifer said there are multiple problems in Baltimore that need to be addressed, in response to Hogan calling Baltimore a poster child for its failure to stop crime. He said he believes clearing cases is what matters most when it comes to crime in the city.
Shleifer also said he is "flattered" that Hogan liked his proposal to increase reward money for information leading to arrests from Crime Stoppers that he submitted months ago, and the fact Hogan is putting money behind it.
