LETTER: Ravens Stadium Mob Left Kids 'Traumatized'

A Perry Hall resident shared her experience during the Ravens Super Bowl stadium celebration.

Perry Hall resident Jennifer Lewis Cabeza submitted the following as a letter to the editor:

My 9- and 13-year-old children and I were at the stadium yesterday (along with my daughter's friend) in Section 121. We had been there since 8 a.m. They had never been to the stadium before that day. All they wanted to see was their Ravens in person for the first time.

Instead, a mob of 40 people rushed our section, kicking about 40 of us out of our seats. We were threatened with our lives; they said if we didn't move they were going to stab us. We cried for help and the state police saw us, came up from the field, but did nothing. My kids were so scared and upset, crying.

We are true Baltimore Ravens fans, season ticket holders as a matter of fact. We are home safe and sound, thank God, but unfortunately my kids are still completely upset over this whole thing. My kids and their friend are traumatized and so am I.

After all that time waiting, we didn't get to see the players come out at all. 

Share your experience from the celebration in the comments.

You sound like an "angry woman". Why don't you solve the city's problems? ....congratulations on your birth location and your present choice of residency in a "neighborly" and safe area. I bet I can guess where you live in "the city".
