I am so proud of Baltimore and Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. The recent ouster of the Occupy protesters from McKeldin Square was carried out peacefully and calmly ("Occupy Baltimore seeks new goals," Dec. 14). This is in stark contrast to the storm trooper tactics used in other cities.
Our mayor and police department are to be congratulated. The protesters behaved well because they were treated respectfully. Too bad Baltimore did not make the national news for handling this situation in a humane manner.
Stephanie Charles, Baltimore
Baltimore handled eviction of protesters well
