Baltimore spirals into the abyss

 

Baltimore is on track for upward of 350 homicides, for a rate of almost 57 per hundred thousand. That’s ten times the national average. (St. Louis is first at about 63 per 100k.) 

 

While Europeans are being told that terror attacks should be viewed as the new normal, Baltimore residents are being told the same about violent crime committed by younger African-Americans. 

 

This recent violence is the surface decay. The social rot in Baltimore is broad and deep. Since the summer, Feds have charged eight Baltimore police detectives with crimes including armed robbery that were committed while they worked in cahoots with a heroin gang. 

 

This social infection has spread to every aspect of Baltimore life. The schools with the lowest proficiency rates have the highest graduation rates, thanks to falsified grades.

 
At 13 of the city’s 39 high schools, not a single student tested as proficient in math.
 
Top pay for principals at these schools is $179,000. Baltimore spends $15,564 per student annually, fourth-highest among the U.S.’s hundred largest districts.

Bankers, Tech Execs Know The Collapse Of Society Is Coming And Are Feverishly Prepping For It  

 

Sudden, severe stock sell-offs sparked by lightning-fast machines. Unprecedented actions by central banks to shore up asset prices. Social unrest not seen in the U.S. in half a century.

 
The forces that have transformed markets in the last decade, namely the rise of computerized trading and passive investing, are setting up conditions for potentially violent moves once the current bull market ends, according to a report from Kolanovic sent to the bank’s clients on Tuesday. 
 
Seven Silicon Valley entrepreneurs have purchased bunkers from Rising S Co. and planted them in New Zealand in the past two years, said Gary Lynch, the manufacturer’s general manager. At the first sign of an apocalypse — nuclear war, a killer germ, a French Revolution-style uprising targeting the 1 percent — the Californians plan to hop on a private jet and hunker down, he said.
