Correct. I'm definitely happy to see that the homicide rate is decreasing but i'm not about to jump for joy because 196 people were still killed. We can and will do better than that. Look at other cities that are similar to Baltimore's size like Atlanta, Memphis and DC

Does anyone believe that it may be because they have also locked up many of the most notorious and vicious felons and kept them off the streets? Supposedly they have been targeting the worst of the worst and getting them off the streets not to mention arresting leaders. That still however does not affect crimes of passions/domestic and robberies gone bad...which may be unchanged thus why we still have what some would consider to be a "murder issue"
