The city of Baltimore has an astronomical murder rate, so a local black activist named Tyree Moorehead came up with a brilliant solution to stop the bloodshed: pay killers, who are almost exclusively black, not to kill.
Tyree spent over a decade in prison on a second-degree murder conviction so he can relate:
I can relate to the shooters, guess what they want? They want money.
Unfortunately, the powers that be have not implemented his brilliant solution and poor Tyree went back to painting the words “No Shoot Zone” throughout the city, a project that he started in 2015, while causing trouble; he has been arrested multiple times over the past couple of years for assault, disorderly conduct, and property destruction.
Yesterday he got shot 3 times in broad daylight.
If only they had implemented his brilliant solution.
