The recent coverage of police brutality in Baltimore has been unnerving (&quot;Civil wrongs,&quot; Oct. 5). However, the recent column by Dan Rodricks reflects exactly how disgusted I've been with every other area of city governance.Mr. Rodricks points out how the police commissioner and Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake turn a blind eye to paying fines and never delving into the problem (&quot;Mayor should have seen troubling brutality trend,&quot; Oct. 5).But to raise taxes to cover the consequences while raising their salaries and enjoying all the &quot;perks&quot; of office is not fixing the problem. There's no accountability.Frances C. Martino, Dundalk-To respond to this letter, send an email to email@example.com. Please include your name and contact information.
