Park Heights and Penn-North

Last Tuesday, after the riots on Monday night, self-identified gang members stood with Baltimore City Council President, Jack Young, to call for calm. Their behavior sparked controversy, as some believe they need to part of the conversation about change in Baltimore, while others hold the responsible for problems in low-income neighborhoods.

In this second hour of Midday, James Timpson, director of Safe Street Park Heights, a gang violence intervention program, joins us. Plus, we hear from Steve Dixon and Blaize Connelly Duggen, directors of the Penn-North Recovery Center about how they've helped hundred of West Baltimoreans get a second chance.

And, WYPR's senior news analyst Fraser Smith gives us his view of the ascent of State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby.
