Baltimore is a "drug gold mine"

Nice. Pennsylvania Avenue is only 4 blocks away, but it might as well be the other side of the world. My Post Office (which I only go to in broad daylight when I have no other choice to get a package) is there.

"Pennsylvania Avenue is a freaking gold mine," he said to police, according to court papers. He boasted that he made $180,000 selling drugs there one night.

"This is the heroin capital of America, ain't no more dope sold nowhere than right there on Pennsylvania Avenue. It's the largest open air drug market in the world for heroin," he said.

So said a 35 year old out of town hit man for the California gang the "Bloods", currently locked up for suspected murder. He denies that he bound, tortured, burned and suffocated a 19 yr. old gang member, in a West Baltimore house a year ago this month.

UPDATE: He was found guilty of second degree murder today.

    I hate that Post Office... I went down there Saturday before last to get a package, and I'm guessing about 50 sales occurred in the 10 minutes I waited for them to open it...
