It's a scary place to live for sure.
No reason to live there though.

Personally I am no fan of Baltimore. I hate that its in MD. I wish we could give it away. I have friends that live there and have tried, over the years, to see what they see in it. But I can't. I know there are "good" and "bad" parts, but Charm City holds no charm whatsoever for me.

So these demographics don't surprise me, sorry to say. I wish that city was suddenly attractive to Google or Uber or some big tech giant and overrun with gentrifiers. Barring that, I am not sure what will help.

Big tech companies don't invest in cities with high murder rates and extremely high crime rates. Not to mention all the other terrible things about that city.

I agree with you, I wish we could either move those ghetto people out of Maryland and maybe put them
on an island.

Ghetto people? what about OTHER people from other demographic areas that are out committing crimes. it's not just people from struggling neighborhoods that are committing crimes. its not just people from neighborhoods termed as "ghetto". if you're going to say that, how about we deport ALL criminals from any state or any place, and send them to an island.

What I mean to say is that a criminal is a criminal. Does not matter what kind of neighborhood, race, culture, or whatever he/she comes from. It's not just ghetto people committing crimes. There could be rich people from the wealthier northern suburb area of Baltimore who go out killing people, robbing grocery stores, and selling drugs etc. I mean, no doubt, Baltimore struggles with a high crime rate, but still, I think Baltimore has a lot to offer to Maryland and is a special part of Maryland. I believe even the roughest cities have good qualities to them.

Of course. E.g., multi-millionaire pro football player Aaron Hernandez who had it made murdered people for looking at him wrong. But the posters in this thread are pointing out where the overwhelming majority of violent crimes occur. I don't know why they bother because it ain't any secret.

It's been a dangerous city, but getting worse due to the liberal anti-police policies
that corrupt Baltimore politicians now push. There is nothing good about some parts of the city, just plain hard-core areas, you don't ever want to live in.

Not only the corrupt Baltimore pols, but also the Feds under Odumbo, his racist-in-chief Eric Holder, and Loretta Lynch who proclaimed that law enforcement is the problem. They in effect emasculated the cops.
