Pugh's big mistake - letting Kevin Davis go

When are The Baltimore Sun and the city going to acknowledge the fact that Baltimore had the right guy to run the police department in place with Kevin Davis? Commissioner Davis worked hard despite all of the challenges he faced, and many of his policies were just starting to take effect when Mayor Catherine Pugh decided she needed a scapegoat and removed him from office. That move may have been the worst decision of her time as mayor.

When Mr. Davis was let go, a Baltimore TV station conducted a poll showing that 85 percent of Baltimore residents thought that he had done a good job. Eighty-five percent! If The Sun is a credible newspaper, it needs to acknowledge that Mr. Davis should never have been let go.
