    how sad- another teen who could have benefited from some actual parenting. Why don’t they arrest parents and also hold them accountable for the actions of their CHILDREN & the fact they have guns and are out running the streets stealing & shooting & so on?

    No problem Mosby will be wanting to give him a free pass next week… The failed democratic regime of this city has turned Baltimore into a decaying violent wasteland

    Is it just me? Having lived and worked in the city for more than 25 years, it appears the more resources the city utilizes to combat the out of control violence in “Charm City”, the more violent it has become. After the Freddie Grey fiasco and the Baltimore City States Attorney Marylyn Mosby castrating the Baltimore City Police Department it was all over, and one would be delusional to think the city is coming back. Just another example of progressive leftist liberal democrats running another big city (Detroit for example) into the ground. One cannot blame “Trump” for that, though the left will try too.
