Where's the leadership Baltimore needs?

July 03, 2013

Your recent report on shootings in Baltimore highlighted the tragic violence afflicting our city ("Deadly summer," June 30).

From the leadership shown by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, however, it is obvious our leaders are not in crisis mode working to combat this frightening turn of events.

When The Sun tracked down the mayor at a convention in Las Vegas, she provided a less than accurate comparison of our city's violence to that of other major cities.

I hope her trip was were restful, because now is the time to get into crisis mode. Get to work: It's time to lead.
