Arrests down citywide in Baltimore

Data from Open Baltimore shows that arrests have plummeted in Baltimore since the April looting and rioting that followed Freddie Gray’s death. Arrests are down 60% year-over-year citywide, and some neighborhoods have seen as much as a 95% reduction in arrests since April. As The Sun's investigation last week revealed, homicides and shootings have increased dramatically during this same period.
