Harbor walk is safe when surrounded by cops [Letter]

I had to laugh as I read in The Sun about the "stroll" by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake ("Rawlings-Blake, Batts stroll to show safe harbor," June 4).

If this was a walk to promote "safety" downtown, why was it necessary to be surrounded by a phalanx of police officers and the city's police commissioner? I think the irony here speaks for itself. However, I salute her prudence.
