Baltimore Mayor Suggests Boxing Bouts As A Way To End Street Violence

After a violent weekend in Baltimore city where 11 people were injured and two men were killed, Mayor Jack Young is searching to find answers on how to make the city safer according to Kelsey Kushner of CBS Baltimore.

Gun violence has been plaguing this city for the last 10 years. The murder rate in this city and non-fatal shooting have increased. I'm not happy with it and neither should the citizens of Baltimore.
"If they want to really settle them, we can have them down at the civic center, put a boxing ring up and let them go and box it out. Those kinds of things, you know, and the best man wins and the beef should be over. Those are some of the things I'm thinking about," Young said.

Young says that it will take a collective effort and also stressed the importance of teaching young kids early before the get into the criminal justice system.
