DJ Boys?

Batts' testimony last night hints at possible explanations for our recent wave of violence: "In that small block of Kenwood, we have the Bloods gang that has one block. On the other block, we have Black Guerrilla Family on the next block. Then we have another crew that has been coming in called the DJ Boys, who have started to come in." Really? Somebody named their gang that? Also "police said two to three of the shootings appear to be connected" and "the random stuff that takes place because you step on my toes or because you look at me wrong – that was some of the things that were taking place this weekend also."

UPDATE: Fenton reports DJ Boys = Jefferson and Decker, and notes the parallels (and connections) to the 2008-2009 bloody Blackwell feud.* Steven Blackwell is currently serving 20 years in federal prison for money laundering, but apparently still has minions. And Carl Stokes blames the bloodshed on corrupt police officers.

Speaking of corruption, Gary Maynard is appearing on a panel before legislators to help them figure out how to spend more money on prisons.*

Meanwhile the violence continues, with 32 people shot since Friday, three people shot (two killed) early this morning* on North Avenue and Poplar Grove Rd. and a man shot in the arm on Cherry Blossom Way last night.

Well, there's something new, a 17-year-old from St. Michael's, Matthew Mikowski, was indicted for strangling his peer while tripping on LSD.* (TIL a "bad trip" on LSD comes from the dose being tainted with an adulterant like a research chemical or PCP. Also, while lots of people have stuck babies in ovens, none of those people were hippie babysitters on acid.)

Man found shot in a house at 3623 Old York Rd; crime has spiked in the Northern 

Oh my, remember the suspicious body of Eric Pendergrass, found floating in the middle branch of the Patapsco? There was talk of ties to the Blackwell brothers, but no one was charged. Now three people, including the original suspect Darryl Nichols plus Sherell Ferguson and a Donta Vaughn have been charged*.

Fenton Tweets that recently-retired Jesse Odom is unretiring at Batts' request*

ps. Occupy Baltimore says it's rallying tonight at 6 p.m. at E Biddle & N. Montfort

Instead of getting all Jayne Millery down at Julius Henson's broom-jumping HQ like she does in my dreams, Jayne Miller instead involved herself in a neighborly dispute involving nude mannequins

Kids -> van

Northeast Baltimore -Police investigate a possible abduction. 5500 block Bowley's Lane. Two juveniles ages 9 & 12 last seen in a blue van. ... hoping it's a non-custodial parent thing, and not a gang-retaliation thing like those Blackwell brothers...

Update, Northeast Baltimore abduction. 5500 block of Bowley's Lane. No abduction, the children have been located at a relatives home.

April 9

The City Paper covers the murder of Gerrald Megginson, whose body was found by the railroad tracks near the B&O Railroad Museum during the search for the Blackwell brothers. Unless I missed it, I didn't see any other news source follow up on the identity or killing of Megginson.

The body of Yolanda Brown was dumped in Gwynns Falls Park on March 20, after she was strangled.

Two eighth-graders at a West Baltimore middle school got the shit beat out of them by at least 10 other kids because one of them was wearing sneakers with red trim.

Two 13-year-old boys from Bethlehem Christian Day School are obviously not understanding the whole "Jesus" thing.

An art teacher was beaten after she told a female student to sit down, and the attack was recorded on a cell phone camera. The school apparently did nothing after the beating Friday, but now school police they'll "begin an investigation."

A bullet grazed the head of a man who was standing in front of the Save-A-Lot grocery store on Erdman Ave.

Michael Thompson, the teenage victim of a hit-and-run in Parkville, has already had six surgeries and won't be able to join the Navy as he was planning to do.

There are a lot of women out there named Violet Marie Gaston, and at least two of them really need to lay off the rock.

The Mungo family are a bunch of misunderstood angels.

For the first time since its inception, criminal charges were made using the new gun offender registry.

Damon M. Jackson of Haverdeegrayce was arrested and charged with robbing and killing Alan Zurita on the side of I-95 last week. Jackson also got shot during the robbery, but he was driven to the hospital by alleged accomplice Demetrius Lovelace instead of being left to die by the side of the road.

There's a disposition hearing (whatever that is, pardon my ignorance) for Thomas Taylor scheduled for Thursday morning in front of Judge Prevas.
At 2:59PM on March 1, 2006 in the 3300 block of Oakfield Avenue Taylor, a self described blood, shot and killed Joseph Miller, 26. Miller, Taylor and others were arguing over Bloods graffiti located on the wall of a corner store in the neighborhood. Taylor, who was wearing red, left the scene. He returned with a gun, having changed his clothing to black. Miller remained at the scene in an attempt to break up the argument over the graffiti. Taylor hid behind some bushes, stood up, and fatally shot Miller and seriously wounded another.

james hensleyEwwww. There's an unregistered child molester out there (pictured at right) whose nickname is Pooh Bear. That's disgusting on so many levels, I don't know where to start. (His beard is kinda disgusting, too, but I've been known to sport the Unabomber / Iron & Wine beard, so I'm not one to talk.)

PDJ: There's now a federal case against Ronald Glenn Draper Jr., who not only stored kiddie porn on his work computer at his state government job, but also allegedly molested two male relatives.

You know it's hard out here for an innocent young black man.
