Shame on Bill Cole This is a map about death. This is about anger, violence, the education system, the family structure, and lack of opportunity. This is a map about aggressive police tactics and an over-enthusiasm to incarcerate. But most importantly this is about segregation and elections. A view may notice that most of the homicides occur in the Northern section of the district and not so many in the Southern part. Poor black people live in the north and rich white people live in the south. My councilman, Bill Cole, relies on the money he receives from being a Baltimore City Coucilman to feed, clothe and house his nuclear family. Bill Cole's unequivocal priority is getting re-elected. Rich white people vote more, poor black people vote less. Bill is all about the southern part of his district. The people in the north part of his district have never heard his name. Go ahead, ask anyone on Pennsylvania Avenue who their elected councilperson is, they won't know. Bill Cole is concerned about the crime rate, he'll tell you he is. But he really isn't motivated enough to make any changes other than hiring more police officers and being even tougher on crime which doesn't work. Bill thinks white people like and want more police officers. If you live in Upton, Bolton Hill or Downtown don't count on Bill to make any drastic alterations to the status quo in order to reduce the horrifically high murder rate in your area.
