I’m not sure where this idea comes from? People aren’t okay with it, but it’s not something that can be easily curtailed by just “adding more law enforcement” or by having a “sense of urgency” because these problems are systemic to citizens of this city being put down by government malfeasance, redlining, and lack of opportunity resulting from those prior two issues. This requires a large change through education (the schools need improvement, that’s obvious) and government incentive (potentially UBI) to encourage a shift in attitude that will take the course of decades.

Companies come and go fairly often, trying to find the “next big place to be.” This isn’t a death knell for Baltimore, otherwise Pandora would’ve abandoned it and paid their lease break fee. Inner Harbor is definitely not conducive to businesses wanting to stay currently, but the changes will come without the liberal/conservative calls for the “death of Baltimore”
