Mayor, police commissioner walk downtown

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, center, greeted residents, business owners and visitors during the walk she and Police Chief Anthony Batts, right, did around the Inner Harbor area. The officials took to the streets to show the safety of the city's downtown tourism district. (Colin Campbellstaff, Baltimore Sun / June 4, 2014)

The mayor's "safety walk" would have been more impressive if she had taken it after sundown — and if she hadn't been accompanied by at least seven uniformed members of Baltimore's Finest, including the police commissioner ("Rawlings-Blake, Batts stroll to show safe harbor," June 4).
