I don’t get it. You have hundreds of criminologists, law enforcement, politicians, community “leaders”, ministers, etc. who have collectively failed to fix Baltimore’s chronic high levels of violence for decades, so what exactly should this president be doing to fix it?

All skin folk ain’t kin folk. Without a strategy to address that reality (including the student population), schools in these “urban” environments will continue to experience these periodic acts of brutality until the surrounding communities gentrify and the problem class is displaced. It may be tone deaf, but fact is we can’t afford and shouldn’t tolerate lazy people not using trash cans and leaving our campus looking a mess.
