    The football story sounded familiar. There are a bunch of white kids hanging around lombard and wolfe playing football, and one has a frequent “wanna see my baby” bit that she pulls for attention.

    Thank you for actually reporting this information. I have been hearing of so many robberies in Canton/Fells Point but NO ONE is actually informing residents about these robberies. I have not even been able to find much information on them other than through this site. It is rather disturbing that many of these incidents are concurring in the early evening or even in broad day light, and more disturbing that Baltimore’s major news outlets don’t bother to even cover this issue, alerting residents to be on guard.
