About a month ago, Baltimore City was in the national spotlight for all the wrong reasons.
Now, Baltimore County has joined the media frenzy following the arrest of three more MS-13 gang members related to a homicide in Towson. According to media reports, the three were arrested for the stabbing death of a rival gang member.
The Baltimore Post strongly believes that the Progressive/Socialist/Democratic rule in both jurisdictions has led to the blight affecting their standard of living and reputations. Both problems could take years to remedy.
According to Fox News, the suspects were identified as Cockeysville residents Hugo Leonel Martinez-Vasquez, 22; Jose Alexi Villacorta-Rivas, 19; and Yoni Membreno-Parada, 17. All have all been charged with first-degree murder and are being held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center.
According to police sources that spoke to The Baltimore Post on the condition of anonymity, Cockeysville has been a hotbed for illegals. Our sources described several incidences of traffic crashes and numerous other criminal activities.
The Towson murder was particularly gruesome since it was perpetrated as a result of the county’s sanctuary status. At least seven of the suspects were known to be illegals and were in the ICE database. The problem in tracking and apprehending these individuals occurs when sanctuary cities or counties fail to cooperate with federal authorities in dealing with these machete-wielding killers.
MS-13 is spreading its violent tentacles throughout the country, including this latest episode reported by the New York Post.
It may take some hard scrubbing to erase this stain on Baltimore County’s national reputation.
Just prior to publishing this story, The Baltimore Post received an email from a Cockeysville resident asking us to investigate the presence of so many illegals in the Cockeysville area. We have sent Councilman Wade Kach an email requesting a response to this ongoing problem. Councilman Kach represents the 3rd District, which includes the community of Cockeysville.
