Anyone who lives in this area knows that it is only a matter of time until another person is killed on Market St. due to late night violence or a high speed crash. In the past 10 years I've seen more police presence in broad daylight than Friday and Saturday nights around last call when these things have been happening for years. If Frederick leadership doesn't care for the safety of it's residents, perhaps they can focus on the impact another murder might have on its precious image of the "hip and historic" small businesses they tout at every turn. If the bottom line is the priority, consider how escalating violence downtown might deter people from investing in property or patronizing the small businesses that are featured constantly in the FNP.


Seems shootings happening every week.


The crooks probably feel emboldened thanks to the defund the police movement and watching the burning, looting, and mayhem last year with little to no consequences and our VP helping bail out those arrested. Cause and effect.


It's the result of the "diversity" Frederick loves so much.


The new culture the city has with daily gun violence will pair nicely with the Plamandoons downtown hotel.
