While the riots and debris may have been cleared in Baltimore, the city continues to be plagued by violent crime. Over the memorial day weekend alone more than two dozen shootings occurred, causing an already taxed police force to work around the clock.

The violence has become so bad that community leaders are speaking out in the hope community members come forward to help stop the violence.

The weekend violence plagued all parts of the city from West Baltimore, to the East Side, Govans, to Reservoir Hill as city police reported 28 shootings and 9 homicides over three days.

Baltimore Police responded to 6 shootings on Friday night, 7 on Saturday, 5 on Sunday and 11 by night fall on Monday.

One of those included a double shooting in which a 9-year-old boy was shot in the leg and an innocent bystander suffered a wound to his head.

While police work diligently on the huge backlog of cases the question that comes is: At what point do federal authorities get involved?

Thus far the Obama administration and justice department, along with the FBI, have been suspiciously silent on the issue.
