Here we go again with the sniping between the governor and the mayor over crime-fighting strategies while the bodies pile up on the streets of Baltimore. Gov. Larry Hogan (R) pushes for more aggressive enforcement. Mayor Brandon Scott (D) wants more caution and study. So when the two meet later in the week, they’ll be discussing the obvious: There’s really nothing new about crime that’s not already known. Bad people do bad things to each other and to good people who too often happen to be in the way. Even kids are helpless victims of stray bullets.
