We haven't "taken this approach" because criminal-loving liberals like you have been undermining the justice system for years by electing dopes like Pat Jessamy and Sheila Dixon.As with most problems, the liberals have noone to blame but themselves. Including crime.I'll all for "another approach." Take the liberals out of the major cities and let conservatives run them. America's urban centers have been absolutely destroyed by liberal policies. Liberals have turned our major cities into hubs of crime, drug use, debauchery, and STD incubators.

Boycott the Harbor...was a recent post by an A.W.M. (angry white male)

Can't boycott- the courts are there. It's not Dixon's fault...of course if she was white no one would blame her.----

Way to bring race into something without cause. You are the perfect example of a racist.

it's a black youth problem. Address that. Stop ignoring it. Liberals will call me racist but ignoring the problem enables it and that is racist.

Is it safe to go to rams head for a concert, espn zone, power plant at night? I've never been to downtown baltimore after dark except for raven orioles games which we leave immediately after the games

Those locations are safe, it's the parking garage that you need to watch you back in__________________

(In response to a post referring to an Article in the Baltimore Sun)
Did you even read the article? Dan clearly states that prisons are necessary. However, when you realize that the prison population as increased tremendously -- up 500% or 600% from 1971 to 2001 -- and there has been absolutely no impact on the crime rate, then any rational person would have to ask just what we're doing. Why are we incarcerating such large numbers of people?

Answer given by a former Balt. county Cop that is ru

nning for County Council with the slogan "Speak English" In 2010???:

Pale:We have large numbers of cancer patients, large numbers of heart patients and the list goes on.True, the numbers of inmates continue to rise as do the number of bad guys.Accountability is the key. The old "do the crime, do the time," is a necessity if we as a society are to survive.

I fault the American middle-class for their turn-around (yes, back in the '60's) that left those of us in blue-collar America, and in "poor-America", who looked up to them, and tried to emulate them, mired in dysfunction.Aristocrats always indulge in nasty practices, just because they can. "The Poor" indulge in nasty practices, just because if you can't be a success, you might as well just have fun.It's the stodgy middle-class, with all its proscriptions on indulging in fleshly pleasures, and demands for hard work, thrift, responsibility, and general moral rectitude that keeps society on an even keel.IMHO, our middle-class has lost its way. From that, all dysfunction flows. Without a PROUD middle-class, we're left with aristocrats (CEO's of Mega-Corps & high, government bureaucrats) & peasants (the rest of us.)*shudder*Different explanation, same conclusion.
