Sadly, Baltimore is not alone. There are whole chunks of cities across the country that have been abandoned and left to rot by globalists/Neocon policies. These are also the same areas where the longest AND costliest war in American history has been raging the past few decades-The War on "Drugs". A complete recipe for disaster.

Here’s one way Baltimore teens are worse off than poor youth in Nigeria and India - The Washington Post

oh no.

you don't get to blame ANY version of the conservative side of America for Baltimore. That city has been run by liberals for generations. It resides in a state that has been hard left for years.

Baltimore is the lefts baby all to themselves. the Cons get zero credit for this house-a-fire.

I would just like to point out to all those blaming "conservatives" for Baltimore that we are fast approaching the end of a 24 year period in which there has been a Republican president for 8 of those years.
That means democrats have held the presidency for 16 years.

over the last 20 years, both republicans and democrats have held the senate for 10 years each
in the house it is true republicans have held the House 16 of the last 20 years but only 16 of the last 60 years!

The fact is democrats have had more influence over American domestic policy than republicans have held. period.

there is no way one can come up with a methodology that blames Conservatives for Baltimore. period.
