What was surprising was the reaction to the attempted mass murder and how the blame went to those targeted for death more than the would-be killers.

Having lived in Baltimore for 13 years and working now as host of a daily radio show on WBAL, the biggest station in the state, Ive seen first hand the destruction of the past week, and the past few years.
