Are there any cases of students on school trips from out-of-county students being physically or verbally assaulted?
Does seem strange. I had to go back and look to see if there was some large youth group or regional activity that the Carroll County Schools had originally announced publically that they were attending that they were now calling off. Otherwise if no one (other than the Science Center) knew or were expecting you in the city why ANNOUNCE to the broader public that you are not coming? Maybe the parents put pressure on the School District not to go and they had to announce publically those concerns for those parents that wondered why the trip was called off?

That's pretty much what happened. Parents complained to Sheriff, Sheriff went to school Administration.

Ahh.. not it makes more sense.. The fact that they allow there students free time to roam around the harbor after their activity is probably where the bulk of the concerns are.. Though one would wonder why not just nix the "free time" and have them walk from the curb right into the door and back after the event and go eat somewhere on the way back to Carroll County.. I guess there are other places they can go in the attraction rich Baltimore-Washington Corridor where they don't have to nix the "free time" so.. why bother....with Inner Harbor...


Clearly the main article is a dig at the City.. This morning the first half of the news was spent on this, the fact that the Blast moved to Towson (the owner made the comment about security concerns for fans), the murder of the detective, and the overall murder rate...and Target closure is still festering.. Just bad news all the way round...

Boy, that title got the attention it wanted, divide divide and divide some more. I am not saying Baltimore doesn't have problems, but good gracious, now the spin doctors are really ginning up and tapping into emotions. Damn. This looks like a headline in the National Inquirer. Young reporter trying to sensationalize.

Ever since the Grey Riots, Baltimore is no longer a place to even visit with your family. Democrat politicians have ruined it for all, as they have done in Chicago, St Louis, and elsewhere. To be fair, the current mayor inherited a mess from the previous, disgrace of a mayor.

The people living in Baltimore are hurt and so are the people in the suburbs.

Looks like Baltimore is even worse than Detroit.

I’d say that Baltimore is more intact, comparatively speaking.

I can understand why one would be concerned at their child being safe in Baltimore, but this is a little obsessive. Most Baltimore residents live a normal healthy life.
