In it, he was questioned about whether he felt comfortable torturing a client or stealing their fingers or ears as souvenirs.According to the Justice Department statement, “After agreeing to the terms of the murder arrangement, Garcia asked the agent if he needed to provide a photograph of the dead body.”

BCPD, NAACP host first gun buyback event

More gun talk.
This time though an opportunity to get some guns of the streets.
Over the weekend Baltimore County police and the NAACP hosted their first ever gun buy back event.
All exchanges were anonymous and Guns did not have to be legal to be exchanged.
president of the Baltimore County NAACP said “We have to look first to see how many guns we collected, kind of track it. It’s going to take a number of these to track, see if it decreases, see if it has an impact on the crime, shooting because we see a shooting every day and see who does it impact. Does it impact the youth? Does it impact older people? How and what population it impacts,”
And I’m sure it does just how much.
But we need more of this and things like it to keep making a difference.
