I found your article "Rawlings-Blake, Batts stroll to show safe harbor" (June 4) pretty amusing.

I am fairly sure that any of us would feel safe walking around downtown with an armed police commissioner and what appear to be several other armed officers as well as several patrol cars.

I think I would have been more impressed if the mayor had been alone and watched over discretely from afar by that heavy police presence.
