A bright idea to reduce crime [Letter]

Baltimore Gas and Electric Co.

My husband and I live two blocks from where the break-in and murder of a Canton woman took place ("Second teen denied bail in killing," Feb. 4). Surprisingly, it's not the murder that scares me, it's the lack of response by our city officials to make some simple changes that would help with crime.

One street light and two park lights have been out for many months, and it's pitch black on our street at night. We've reported this repeatedly. The city told us it's Baltimore Gas and Electric's responsibility to fix the street light while BGE said it's the city's responsibility, and there's no movement at all with the park lights.

Keeping the streets lit would go a long way toward helping with crime in general. It's great the mayor is tackling violent crime, but we can't neglect the simple fixes.

D. Thomas, Baltimore
