And exactly how many people in Sun River, Utah are contemplating to relocate to Baltimore? They must be lined up around the block.

How can one ever possibly expect a "dying city" to grow if you tell everyone to leave?

Lol, you should actually visit downtown sometime, couldn't think of a term that more inaccurate than "dying city"

A good amount of it goes unreported too. Most people I know feel safe during the daylight and that is about it.

If you want to feel safe in the city-I would stick to Fed Hill, not Patterson Park.

Here is a murder that happened 2 or 3 weeks ago:

Application Error (http://spotcrime.com/crime-report/18054202/shooting+on+13xx+n+pahat - broken link)

Here is a body that was found in Patterson Park in Feb:

Shooting - 13XX N PATTERSON PARK AV, BALTIMORE, MD - 04/21/2011 06:47 PM

Here is an article written in December of 2010 about how crime is on the rise there:

Crime Near Baltimore’s Patterson Park On The Rise « CBS Baltimore
I'm sorry to hear about crime, and while i certainly don't blame the victim, arn't most parks dawn until dusk anyway?

Baltimore is trending upward/forward, it is not a dying city. It did bleed population for years but that seems to have been staved off perhaps even reversed.

If they don't decrease property taxes, there will be big problems IMO.

Not sure where you got this info. Last census showed Baltimore population decreased by over 30,000. Slowing-yes. Reversed-no.

Unfortunately yes - - that translates into a 4.6% decline in the City's population from 2000-2010. I haven't looked into the years prior to see if that's a lesser decline.
