Ms. Mayor, pay attention to the crime that is plaguing our city

June 25, 2013

The major news stories over the weekend were all about the 18 people shot and six killed in black-on-black crime in Baltimore, yet there were no words from the mayor or any other city officials. ("Eight killed in bloody weekend," June 24.)

When I hear that "crime in Baltimore is down," I wonder if those in city government are just used to lying to everyone or whether they simply don't care. I also wonder whether the public has gotten so used to the violence that they don't care either.

Perhaps now the mayor will pay a bit more attention to the crime in the city and less to giving huge tax breaks to the rich developers who only get richer.
