Five years ago, in this space, I wondered why, in a city of Baltimore’s size, street violence appeared to have no end. Shouldn’t Baltimore’s at-risk population — that is, adults who, by life circumstance or by choice, are at risk of becoming a shooter or a shooting victim — have been diminished or scared off by now? My conclusion was no, or not necessarily, because a lot of the violence is retaliatory; it spreads like a contagion, infecting new shooters and victims.
