The city is full of crime. if you disagree you do not live here.
The state government is run by giving power to people who should not have it (welfare queens and crack heads) and charging the rich white people for the useless social programs and over funded, under performing public schools.
Not a great place to be a police officer, but god bless those crazy fucks for trying to drain the ocean with a teaspoon.
People with money leave as the taxes increase to move to the county. this has been steadily shrinking the tax base.
Baltimore is so dangerous the crack dealers are moving out. popular nicknames include "harm city" "Bulletmore" "Brawltimore" "Bodymore" "Murderland" and "the city that bleeds"
How bout them O's.
I have lived here my whole life, and I can't imagine being anywhere else. I like to sit at Kisling's and drink a beer while watching the O's kick some Yankee ass on TV. I like walking around the Square (Canton) and jumping into a stool at one of the first bars with their windows open. I LOVE sitting in the cheap seats at Camden Yards cheering on the most underrated team in baseball (just because our payroll isn't ridiculous doesn't mean we aren't good). And I can't imagine missing Sunday night karaoke at Fletcher's with all of my friends.
Most of these definitions are bashing Baltimore. But if you have lived here, you appreciate all of the little things. So we aren't the safest city... Don't be an idiot and wander into West Baltimore after dark. We might not be the cleanest, but the Inner Harbor collects all of the trash that floats through the freaking bay. But we have history. We are extremely cultured. We are Baltimore, and you aren't going to change that.
We do have the STDs and weed, though.
