Yes, I’m from Baltimore and still live near it and work in it every day.
No, I don’t really have any comment about the events of this past week or the protests/riots that happened on Saturday.
I could comment, but why?
This world is crazy and Baltimore got a shot of crazy in the past week or so. I don’t like it. But it doesn’t make me love my city any less.
Only thing I will say is that, individuals do bad things, individuals make mistakes. To punish an entire group for the acts of one or a few is unfair. I have friends that are police officers in Maryland and I hope they remain safe. I hope everyone despite race, gender, job title, or belief stays safe. Not just in Baltimore, but everywhere.
I’m still proud to be a Baltimorian. Always have been. Always will be.
