Its chief organizer says the first 300 Men March — a protest of the gun violence in Baltimore this summer — turned into a 600 Men March, a surprising and impressive citizens' uprising in a city aching and tired from the shootings and killings. But the next march, scheduled for Friday night, could pack even more punch. That's what Munir Bahar, the 32-year-old leader of the effort, hopes for: "A large group of black men walking, this time through the hot spots of East Baltimore, without a police escort, to tell the young men on the corners they have to stop the violence.

The 2 a.m. shooting where five people were wounded outside Odell's early Monday does not surprise us at all. Since 1976, when the late Odell Brock opened his night club in the first block of East North Avenue, half a dozen people have been slain outside, often in arguments over narcotics.In 1987, federal agents padlocked and confiscated the club after its then owner, Philip A. Murray, was arrested and convicted for his involvement in a major West Baltimore heroin ring. Much of that ring's money had been laundered through Odell's, prosecutors said.

As hundreds of men marching against violence Friday night along Baltimore's North Avenue passed Gina Williams' vehicle, she applauded. "I'm glad to see some black men stand up for their community," said Williams, 59. Last year amid a surge in violence in Baltimore, a group of men hatched an idea in a barbershop: Get 300 men to walk the streets in a demonstration not only against violence but the apathy that allows it to persist. They met and far exceeded their goal, attracting more than 600 men who trudged the length of North Avenue, from the west side through midtown to the east side and back.

We are coming up on the first anniversary of Baltimore's 300 Men March, when far more than that number of men - perhaps double that number - walked the length of North Avenue and back on a Friday night to protest last summer's spike in killings. It was a quickly organized event in response to a particularly sickening period in the life of the city. More than 40 people had been shot in the first couple of weeks of summer, 20 of them in a single weekend. Even with all that - lots of blood on the streets, and lots of urgency in response to it - organizers were surprised by the size of the march.
