No But you forget just how grim. I've visited Camden, south Philly, before now a couple of times and that's pretty much like West Baltimore in some ways: low-rises and corners, huge murder rate/annum (though slightly less in the last couple of years, I believe), and huge attempts by the local church and community to provide an alternative.

I totally cried for the second time at the penultimate couple of episodes of Season 2 re F Sobotka.
