Ink: "As 2008 ended and 2009 began, Baltimore City continued its backslide. Though the city's 2008 homicide total was its lowest since 1988, there was an uptick in murders during the last two months of the year. The trend continues into the new year..."

The murder of Tian Zin Wang reminds me of why I've give up on Baltimore City. Here's a guy who comes to the US with nothing, makes something of himself, and then is murdered by the degenerate residents of a neighborhood where people live off of welfare, drug dealing, and whining about how whitey is holding them down.

In broad daylight. Not much fear of witnesses or Pat & Company. Retribution for the execution of Andre Thornton? Not sure what the 'rules' are in such tit for tat executions. In 2008, it seemed several 'victims' had just been released from prison after serving a handful of years for violent crimes, so memories must be pretty long in certain parts of B-Town.
