It comes as no surprise to readers that dozens of Baltimore City businesses, located in the Inner Harbor, in a stretch called "Fells Point," are threatening the new city government, run by Mayor Brandon Scott, with not paying their taxes because they're "fed up and frustrated" with the outburst of violence.

In a letter titled "Letter to City Leaders From Fells Point Business Leaders," addressed to Mayor Brandon Scott, Council President Nick Mosby, Councilman Zeke Cohen, Madam State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby, and Commissioner Michael Harrison, the 37 restaurants and small businesses are threatening to stop paying city taxes and other fees until "basic and essential municipal services are restored."

What's happening in Fells Point, known for its hipster pubs and taverns, as well as delicious seafood from the Chesapeake Bay, is experiencing an overflow of violent crime from other troubled areas.

"The 37 businesses are planning to place their city taxes in an "escrow account" and released them until these demands are satisfied:

  • Pick up the trash
  • Enforce traffic and parking laws through tickets and towing
  • Stop illegal open-air alcohol and drug sales
  • Empower police to responsibly do their job
The letter continued to say that minor crime that police "ignore" is what is contributing to more violent crime. So Marilyn Mosby's halt on prosecuting petty crimes appears to be backfiring.

"When it comes to prostitution, public urination and defecation, and the illegal sale and consumption of alcohol and illicit drugs on the streets, we know these crimes are not as serious as the carjackings, shootings, and homicides that have become routine," read the letter. "But, as this past weekend proved, a culture of lawlessness rarely remains confined to petty offenses and invariably leads to the kinds of violence and tragedy we witnessed late Saturday night."

The letter concludes:

"Fell's Point is one of the crown jewels of Baltimore. It has become the heartbeat of city commerce; its rich history, stunning views, and cobblestone streets make it a landmark destination for residents and tourists alike; and, at its best, it reflects the remarkable diversity and magic of Baltimore. But if there is a cautionary tale in the decline of the Inner Harbor and Baltimore's Downtown, it is that where small issues go unchecked, it is only a matter of time before deeper problems take root and a neighborhood collapses."

Here are the businesses and their owners, in alphabetical order, who signed the letter:

  • Abbey Burger – Marigot Miller
  • Admiral's Cup – Darin Mislan
  • Ale Mary's -Tom Rivers
  • Alexander's Tavern – Carrie Podles
  • aMuse Toys -Claudia Towles
  • Barcocina – Shane Gerken
  • Barley's Backyard – William Packo
  • Bertha's – Andy Norris
  • BOP Pizza – Mike Beckner
  • Denzel’s Shark Bar Grill – Denzil Richards
  • Dogwatch Tavern – Marka Browning
  • EC Pops – Doug Yeakey & Lance Sovine
  • Emporium Collagia -Luana Kaufmann
  • Fells Point Creamery – Essayas Hable
  • Fells Point Surf Shop- Alison Schuch
  • Friends and Family- Ginny Lawhorn
  • Koopers Tavern- Patrick Russell
  • Luna Garden- Jascy Jones
  • Max's Taphouse- Ron Furman
  • Papi's- Charlie Gerde
  • Party Dress – Susan Singer
  • Pie in the Sky – Murat Mercan
  • Poppy & Stella – Kelley Heuisler
  • Red Star – Kevin Havens
  • Rodos Bar – Mike Katris
  • Slainte – Kaite Russell
  • SuCasa – Nick Johnson
  • Thames Street Oyster House – Candace Beattie
  • The Admiral Fell Inn – Ted Jabara
  • The Choptank – Alex Smith
  • The Horse You Came In On – Eric Mathias
  • The Point – Erica Russo
  • The Pretzel Twist – Essayas Hable
  • The Rockwell – Bryan Burkert
  • The Waterfront – Kevin Havens
  • The Wharf Rat – Sean Brescia & Jennifer Olivia
  • Zelda Zen – Beth Hawks"

    I would recommend strongly that those in this letter consider CRIMINAL CHARGES of "DEPRIVATION OF RIGHTS UNDER COLOR OF LAW" against these officials


    AND "CONSPIRACY GAINST RIGHTS"


    THESE OFFICIAL'S ALLEGED CRIMES MAY INCLUDE HOBBS ACT VIOLATIONS

    "The extortion offense reaches both the obtaining of property "under color of official right" by public officials and the obtaining of property by private actors with the victim's "consent, induced by wrongful use of actual or threatened force, violence, or fear," including fear of economic harm. See this Manual at 2405 and Evans v. United States, 504 U.S. 255, 265, 112 S.Ct. 1181, 1188 (1992) (only a private individual's extortion of property by the wrongful use of force, violence, or fear requires that the victim's consent be induced by these means; extortion of property under color of official right does not require that a public official take steps to induce the extortionate payment)."
