Two women were shot early Monday morning, and neither the victims nor any witnesses offered the detectives information ("18-year-old killed Sunday in West Baltimore was dirt bike rider who appeared in rap video,” June 19). Our police department is attacked for not getting resolution to these crimes, but their failure is due in great part to the failure of the public who will not cooperate with investigations. There is a catastrophe in our city, and it will grow larger until its citizens realize their help is desperately needed.
