The Negro needs the white man to free him from his fears. The white man needs the Negro to free him from his guilt.

I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.

Wiki facts Crime statistics

In 2011, Baltimore police reported 196 homicides, the lowest number of slayings since recording 197 homicides in 1978. That number is far lower than the peak homicide count of 353 slayings in 1993.


The drop in 2011 was significant, but the homicide rate was in the same range as the late 1980s when the city had another 130,000 residents. City leaders credited their sustained focus on repeat violent offenders and an increased community engagement for the continued drop, reflecting a nationwide decline in crime. However, Baltimore’s decline was short-lived, as a reported 219 and 235 homicides were committed in 2012 and 2013, respectively. Baltimore’s jump in homicides in 2013 defied regional and national trends.

Baltimore’s level of violent crime is much higher than the national average. In 2009, a total of 1,318,398 violent crimes were reported nationwide across the United States, equivalent to a rate of 0.4 incidents per 100 people.
