    So, according to the last line of this “story”, there were nearly 2500 people shot and killed in Baltimore in 1993? I thought reporters were smarter than everyone else? Not hardly!

  2. The politicians and the liberal left will never instill a value for human life no matter how many millions of dollars they pour into the abyss I grew up in called Baltimore.
