Mayor's disgraceful comments on shootings [Letter]

June 01, 2014

I am not surprised but I am appalled by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's recent comments about the shootings over the holiday weekend ("Six people shot, three fatally, in city over holiday weekend," May 27).

Apparently she feels that going from 12 shootings and three deaths to six shootings and three deaths is an "improvement." Really? An improvement for whom? The shooters? Their accuracy went from 25 percent to 50 percent.

Unbelievable. Three deaths is three too many.
