Last Saturday, many teens spread messages online to meet in the Inner Harbor. As the day turned to night, the crowd swelled to more than 400, police estimate. Most of the youth gathered peacefully, but as the night went on tensions escalated. Scattered fights broke out among the youth. Some tried to smash storefront windows, police said. Some walked in the middle of Pratt Street and blocked traffic. A half-dozen youths took a bicyclist to the ground and beat him. One teen jumped on the roofs of two parked cars. Another randomly kicked a passerby in the face, according to a video compiled and distributed by Baltimore Police.

Meanwhile, police continue to search for eight teens who attacked a young couple outside an Inner Harbor steakhouse the night before. A 32-year-old woman was beaten in the face and hospitalized at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center, Worley said.

“It was a severe enough injury that at one point they thought she may lose her eye,” said Worley, adding that doctors no longer believe she will lose her eye. “It was a vicious attack — unprovoked at all. The couple were walking to their car.”

Police have made no arrests. Detectives are working to enhance surveillance camera footage and identify the attackers.

The couple was outside Sullivan’s Steakhouse on Light Street around 10:30 p.m. May 24 when the teens ran up. They gave no warning, Worley said.

“[They] never said anything,” he said, “just started punching and kicking them.”

There is no right for the law abiding to defend themselves in Baltimore, nor Maryland. Baltimore depends on tourist revenue from the Inner Harbor, and Fells Point. This kind of thing keep people that spend money away. In the past the Baltimore Police have been told by past Mayors to "Let them Loot. It's only property." Do you think they are motivated to do anything real to stop this violence?

The video is no longer available. Smart. Nothing to see here, folks, please come spend your money. Here, look at these pics of officers joking around and having a good time on the Inner Harbor instead.

Honestly, smart. Accentuate the positive.

Edited to add: Apparently this happened 2 weeks ago, Memorial Weekend. Sounds like the problem is solved.

The problem is not SOLVED.
So far the mayors' in Baltimore do a few things. One is to inaccurately say that it's Baltimore fault these kids took to the street. Thus encouraging teens to hide behind the 'gee the city won't give us a park or area to 'peacefully' riot". Thus flipping the onus onto the city tax payers. Another mayor did the gee can't we get along? Then another played hard ball. Given that we are dealing with aggressive behavior I find it silly to plactate this group.
Own your behavior! And deal with the consequences.
I rarely go to inner harbor anymore. Unless I wear full armour gear. (Jesting).

Can only imagine if someone like former president, Franklin D. Roosevelt, was still around, there would be many programs offering young people more positive things to do with their time.

Whatever happened to young people constantly being on their phones? In order to fight and riot like this, they would have had to set the phone down temporarily!
