Time for Baltimore to be known for something other than homicide

May 25, 2010

Baltimore finally gets ranked, but not in a good way. Ranked fifth the list of places with the most homicides, Baltimore's homicide rate grew 37.3 killings per 100,000 people in 2009. As of Monday, 71 homicides have been reported. So many people don't think before they act, and people die or get hurt for no reason.

Baltimore is a much better place than these lists portray. Maybe next year we can get off this list, and get on a much better one!
