Crime City Trivia: Baltimore, Maryland has one of the highest crime rates in the United States

Ask an American about the most dangerous cities in the U.S. and Baltimore will generally land near the top of the list. Though Baltimore’s crime rates have been decreasing (some have increased again), they’re still exorbitantly high, including a murder rate of 37.42 per 100k. Baltimore is trying to reign in its crime levels, even implementing youth curfew laws in 2014 – unaccompanied children under 14 must be in by 9 P.M. and those 14-16 must be in by 10 P.M. (or 11 P.M. on weekends and during the summer).
