The Inner Harbor, Accountability and Baltimore's Youth
Last Saturday night, a large group of teenagers gathered together in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. After a few tense hours, a handful of kids were arrested for charges ranging from assault to disturbing the peace. The incident was at least the fourth such episode in the Baltimore area since last summer, including disturbances at the White Marsh Mall and Eastpoint Mall in Baltimore County.
