According to this piece in the Baltimore Sun, police and Baltimore leaders are worried after some serious attacks in the Inner Harbor area. The story describes some violent and troubling crimes.
Sadly, I’ve never been to Baltimore, so my knowledge of the city is limited to what I have learned from Homicide and The Wire. But luckily I will soon get to experience B-more in person; I have a trip planned there for next weekend.
Are people there concerned about these crimes? Are they being blown out of proportion because some of the victims were tourists? Will this hurt further development in this area? Any Baltimore readers (Baltimorites? Baltimoreans?) care to weigh in?
Thanks to Rust Wire reader and Baltimore resident Eric Noyes for sending me this story.
