2900 block of Sollers Point, York way, Cornwall or Liberty pretty much all trouble. I can't believe there are still some of the original older people still there. Ride down Dunmanway and you can spot the trouble. Like to see that hundred block taken over like the 2500 block of York way was. What's a shame the police won't admit Baltimore County has a gang problem.

Freddy, I think the Baltimore county police are very much aware of what is going on. They work very hard to minimize gang activity. If you spot trouble get on the phone and call 911. The public has a responsibility to do this to keep everyone safe.

You are correct the police are very much aware but won't admit that there is a problem. The street officers may work hard but then the court systems screws them with no or very light punishments. The citizens has a responsibility up until it puts them in harms way. Again the problem lays in the low incoming rentals which attracts these type of people. It's not only these 4 streets but others as well. And FYI there is a big drug riff between Dundalk and O'Donnell Heights right now so we should see more blood shed on the street of Dundalk.
