Great, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake ("Mayor strolls to show safe streets," June 5), if we had the police protection you have then going out on public streets would be safe for us, too. But let the mayor not have all that protection around and go for a regular walk and then let's see how brave her comments about public safety would be.
When you do that, Ms. Rawlings-Blake, then the public might feel it's safe out there. Until then, the murders and stabbings and shootings will continue by the thugs and druggies who control the streets.
