According to the Baltimore sun reports Baltimore mayor Jack Young is super cool on niggas shooting each other up in his city and has offered a novel idea to curb rampat gun violence: Throw hands
Said young during the a “more United” gun violence rally, ” if they want to really settle them, we can have them down at the civic center [now called Royal Farms Arena] put a boxing ring up, let them go and box it out, these kind things.” May the best man win, and the beef should be over. Those are kind of things I’m thinking about, and hoping that we can get these people to put these guns down. “
The mayors’ proclamation comes on the heel of a series of shooting in which a 17 years old teenager lost his life while four others were injured.
“We saw what happened last week with the young people in our city, and we want to make sure we are supportive of them,” Baltimore’s State Attorney said “it’s time for us collectively to come together and change the trajectory and find productive activities for our young people, especially when we know they’re getting out of school.”
With the National Gun Violence Awareness Day coming on June 7, the rally serves as both a prelude and demonstration of the city’s commitment to eliminating the gun violence plaguing the city. A series of week end “pop-up” events to focusing on youth engagement are also scheduled to take place on Fridays through out the summer with the intent to ” focus on our babies before it’s too late.”
