This doesn't really sound like a thread that should be in "current events". It sounds more like a failed attempt at political posturing..

Not everyone has an education and understand what "current events" is. No need to bully the uneducated.

It should have been prefaced better, but since the city is going up in flames, it seems relevant to current events. It adds useful context to show that this was already one of the 4-6 most violent cities in the country.

I guess to some stating fact is a failure and posturing. To me reflexively denying fact is failure and posturing, but to each their own I suppose.

I guess not everyone understands inference.

Would not the correct grammar for your sentence read: "Not everyone has an education and UNDERSTANDS what 'current events' is?"

Proofreading is part of education too.

Whether it's a Mexican border city, or any city with a high homicide rate, it's never deterred me from going there as they're not shooting tourists!

It was drilled into me since a child: Home of the Brave!

Not Home of the Coward!

The current events in Baltimore make me sad because Baltimore really IS beautiful in so many areas and in so many ways. It has an amazing history and a beautiful port area. Great seafood. Historic neighborhoods - all those white steps and old rowhouses!

There are so many good people in Baltimore who are now in danger of losing their jobs and livelihoods, who now must feel like their very lives are endangered. I feel really sorry for them. I hope this all calms down soon so they can get their lives back.

I agree. While I don't live there anymore, there are some really nice architecture that you don't see in many cities. And the seafood is to die for. You've never had a crab cake unless you had one from Baltimore.

Baltimore has its own, unique atmosphere. It's just too bad the city is so scattered. And it isn't walking-friendly (unless you're staying on Charles St or something), to do anything here, you'll need a car.

I used to live there and only moved to be closer to a job. I'm willing to bet the OP has zero experience with the city and is just trolling. Am I correct, OP?

I never had any problems, felt very safe, and would not hesitate to move back. Do some simple research before moving to stay away from the bad neighborhoods like most major cities have and one will be fine.

Not necessarily. When I was having car issues I took a city bus to get me downtown to the light rail and train station. Most bus routes run all night. I did so without problems. They have a subway system too but pales in comparison to DC's. Subway, light rail, and MARC are accessible from just about anywhere.
