The need to reinvest these dollars effectively was brought into sharp relief after Freddie Gray's death. The neighborhood where he grew up and was arrested, Sandtown-Winchester/Harlem Park, has one of the lowest life expectancies and rates of educational success in the city, as well as the highest rates of unemployment. It also has more violent crime than other parts of Baltimore. At the same time, it is ground zero for the use of incarceration in the city. The community has the most people in prison of any neighborhood in Baltimore, with an incarceration rate that is four times greater than the U.S. average, and eight times greater than Maryland's incarceration rate. Taxpayers spend $17 million locking up people from the community.
