Dan Rodricks: Can you blame a shopping center for a shooting?

January 6, 2023

The people who got on Baltimore City Councilman Kristerfer Burnett after the shooting in Edmondson Village on Wednesday morning might not know this, but he has been pushing for investment in that old shopping center for several years. Before and after the Freddie Gray uprising and unrest of 2015, Burnett was a community organizer who tried to get the owner to clean the place up and make improvements. Burnett has been on the City Council six years now, and Baltimore has recorded 300-plus homicides each of those years.
