Yet if the mayor is concerned about the drop-off in arrests, she isn't showing it. Last week she pointed to indictments of gang members as proof that department is still aggressively fighting crime. She said officers were having trouble in trying to "jive their training with the charges that were brought" by State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby against the six officers in the Gray case and that Police Commissioner Anthony Batts was working on clarifying those issue with the rank and file, as if this was a mere matter of procedure. Mr. Batts, for his part, appears betwixt and between. On the one hand, he says the officers "have endured a lot of trauma," and on the other, he speaks of their "ethical responsibility" to protect the city.
