First, as to "certain death." The annual homicide rate in Honduras, highest in the world, is 90.4 per 100,000 people. In San Pedro Sula, the most dangerous city in the world, it is 169 per 100,000. Appalling figures, yes, but not "certain death." The inner-city section of Baltimore over which one-time mayor and current Governor O'Malley has presided for 10 years, has a population of about 200,000 when neighborhoods inhabited by the middle class are omitted. Baltimore's 200-plus homicides per year are overwhelmingly concentrated there. You do the math. Is life in Governor O'Malley's "Little Honduras" describable as "certain death?" If so, he has displayed little concern, resisting proposals for reform of the drug and crime laws and ignoring youth unemployment.
