Man shoots another man in the face during attempted puppy robbery

From: MAJOR IAN DOMBROSKI

“On Wednesday at about noon a man tried to rob another man of his puppy in the 800 block of East Patapsco Avenue in Brooklyn . The victim did not relinquish the puppy and the robber shot the victim in the face. The robber fled and police responded and began to investigate. Detectives, Southern District patrol, and Southern District operation units worked together and quickly identified the shooter. A warrant was issued for Frederick Catchings. He was arrested a few days later and is charged with attempted murder, attempted robbery and other related crimes. The victim will survive his injuries. The puppy was unharmed.”

Frederick Catchings… quite a guy. The name sounds familiar. Maryland Case Search reveals that there are two men with this name. One Frederick Catchings was born in 1969 and the other one was born in 1992. Father and son?  Young Mr. Catchings is this guy:

Bill Cole, the BDC, and the Superblock

The future mayor of Baltimore was selected by the current mayor of Baltimore to head the Baltimore Development Corporation. I do not think we need a BDC, but it exists and it needs a leader. Bill Cole is definitely the type of person to head such an organization. It seems like everyone out there is pleasantly surprised that the Mayor selected a competent individual from Baltimore to head the organization. Baltimore is so used to political appointees being bumbling do-nothing bureaucrats with friends in high places that when a qualified person is actually named head of a government-type organization it is a celebratory event! Even if Cole flops at least he is being paid less than his incompetent predecessor. In Baltimore we are used to replacements being paid more than their predecessors no matter what their qualifications are.

The legendary Westside Superblock is still as desolate as it was in 1999.  The Superblock is one of the first projects that comes to mind when one thinks about the BDC. If Cole can somehow manage to take the Superblock from languishing concept to glorious reality then he will have accomplished something that three mayors and numerous bureaucrats have miserably failed at. Such an accomplishment would be the crown jewel of an unstoppable well financed campaign for political office. This will get interesting.
