You couldnt pay me to live the city. As much as I love the city the life, I love the peace and quiet of the country life even better. I lived in the city for a year. In that year, my car was broken into 8 times, my house was broken into, there was a shooting around the corner and a junkie overdosed in the house next to mine which was ironically vacant. I've lived in different states / cities and have never encountered the amount of crime I had to endure as a "victim" living in "Charm City". Where I live now reminds me somewhat of the movie Pleasantville. No worries about junkies, no worries about people breaking into cars / homes, and no worries about savages shooting each other over who's corner belongs to who. All I see are kids playing in the street and working class families who care about their neighborhood. The way a neighborhood should be. It's a shame that the majority of the city prefers the opposite. 

 

What part of Baltimore was this? Just curious.

Don't believe anything coming out of Auguste's mouth.  He just loves to put the city down to make himself feel better about himself.  He must have lived on North Avenue.

Eight people killed so far this week; 94 for the year.

Maybe some steady rain will keep the pollen and the body count down for a few days. Nothing else is working.

Over 4,000 people shot and killed in this country so far this year.

 

Baltimore is not alone. Nothing is working anywhere, nor will it, no matter what the politicians you voted for promised us.  Part of daily life here in the good ole USA.

Maybe you really do believe that gun deaths are equally distributed throughout all areas of the city, the state, and the country. That's fine. Most people know better. Check out the homicides maps that are readily available. I'm not interested in changing your mind.

Here's one for Baltimore. http://data.baltimor...lice/homicides/

I don't see things in black and white, as all blood bleeds red. All of them have something in common by the way they died.

The 100 blk of N. Luzerne Ave. I wanted to live close to the park. It was a really nice place but the the next few blocks north was hell and the parking was horrible. I usually had to park on Fairmount ave. That's where the majority of my car break ins would occur. Police would tell me that it was the juveniles from the neighborhood that were doing all the larceny from autos. After my house got broken into, I packed up and left.

The pollen is killing me. No pun intended.  :P

Seems to be repeat offenders in the city. Catch. Release. Repeat.

That's a fringe area and I would have left too.

Baltimore is the worst.  Maybe it's time I move to the county so I can complain about how Baltimore is the worst.

Where is governor Hogan in all of this? Black people killing blacks. Opiates killing white folks in record numbers.

 

Other than a TV commercial about the dangers of opiates, what else has he done to attempt to fix either of these major problems?

Start a separate thread on it or contact the governor and ask him.

You voted for him so he could help with our crime problem. Thought you would know what he has done. Sorry for asking, but I know the answer.

What do you want him to do?  Baltimore police now are under the be nice policy, so can't expect much from them. 

As for opiates, lots of ideas out there.  Few, if any solutions.  Seems the current mindset is forced rehab.  That will solve nothing. 

I doubt anything other than attempting to curtail supply will help.

That could help in several areas.

Hmmmm seems they convincingly buried or didn't report the number of gang bang retaliatory hits were in that number. To me the only ONLY number that matters was the unintentional shooting 615.

 

All the remainder were somehow linked with crime. Now last time I looked a gun can't walk down the street and fire itself.

 

Instead of focusing on guns how about focusing on the fruit loops/bad guys that use them?
