      Baltimore's fateful choice

      The police need to make a calculated decision on how to proceed regarding the unrest in Baltimore, given there are risks associated with whatever path they take ("After charges against officers, Hopkins' students call for continued protests, dialogue on Freddie Gray," May 1).
