  1. The place is getting deadlier. This now done in broad daylight with no fear of repercussion on the shooters. Thanks for highlighting what the media typically avoid.
    The place is being transformed from a small hamlet to b’more’s new crime backyard with the influx of these high FARM households. The map shows its by Stevens forest village center a relatively well trafficked area. The other day a shooting turned out deadlier by twin rivers.

    Are you going to tell me with all this crime, Columbia is still one of the top 10 places to live in the USA? I mean c’mon even if you ignore all the other systemic political issues, I dont see how anyone can make such a case anymore with a straight face. And for the rest of you who believe so, keep drinking that Kool aid.
