Baltimore Witness will report three kinds of news articles.
With reporters covering every hearing of every case of homicide or non-fatal shooting our primary kind of stories will be the daily coverage of cases. This will be the daily feed of the functioning of the court.
While Baltimore Witness will not interpret data, we will write basic data analysis articles about trends that the data we collect reveal.
One of the core functions of Baltimore Witness is to do the follow-up/news/ on policies that so rarely happens. Our reporting is not intended to be critiques of the policies but rather to illuminate the data that will allow others to evaluate how well they are performing.
