Crime: Blame It On The Landlord

Crime: Blame It On The Landlord

There is no question about it.  The crime level in many parts of Baltimore City, as well as in some other major cities, is far higher than is acceptable.

There are many theories and opinions as to the cause.

There, also, have been many efforts to eliminate or, at least, reduce the crime to more reasonable levels.

But now, there seems to be an effort to place the blame, to some degree, on the landlords.

It is true that there is the occasional slum lord who needs to be cited and removed from the business, but by and large this is not the case.  Most landlords are responsible.

Somehow, the City of Baltimore has come to the conclusion that it should revoke the license of a particular landlord and relocate the tenants to other rental units based on the idea that the rental housing itself is causing the crime.

After leaving Nashville, this is where Oprah went for her FIRST BIG TV break of her career and where she learned about her liberal and progressive leanings that served her well in Chicago until recently.

The Key statement in the article is "Tricap receives federal housing subsidies from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to cover residents' rent".  Oh yea, section 8 housing - the best and brightest of us. Section 8 housing more crime and more tenants that just do not care about anything.
