    The crimes in the city do not surprise me. When my family lived there it was halfway decent. The then acting Mayor had more on the ball and took care of business. Baltimore grew and flourished. After he left the position it was one incompetent mayor after another and crime in the city was almost ignored. The crime at the Inner Harbor is a disgrace and what is even more a disgrace is the fact that the city does not allow the crime information known because of fear of the loss of business, The pick pockets, the peddlers and the thieves are enormously present once you are there. Where are the police? Why isn’t anything done about the crime? We moved in 1980 along with thousands of other residents who couldn’t take anymore. I can imagine what it’s like now. Soon there will be no Baltimore and that is very sad. Due to people who are put in office, people who are corrupt and incompetent, Baltimore will never be the same as the once thriving city used to be.
