An Actual Peril

A Baltimore resident, 18, was shot and killed in a robbery this week. The victim, Zachariah Hallback, was waiting for a bus at 33rd St. and Alameda after visiting a friend at Morgan State. Hallback was a proponent of the Baltimore Algebra Project and described as a "good kid."

It's more than unfortunate--it's unfair--that you can't wait for a bus without dying in the city. Not that it's okay to rob anyone anywhere, but shouldn't everyone have the right to wait for transport in peace? To traverse the streets without incident?
