Who is Baltimore's police commissioner trying to fool by blocking off the 900 block of Bennett Place ("Fears of violence strain one blood-stained block," July 8)? The problem with violence in this area is the residents' refusal to let the police know who is causing trouble in their neighborhood. The police are there to help, not provide private security at taxpayer expense. This accompanying photo of a police officer standing guard is nothing but a feel-good moment to save the commissioner's job. Police don't need to be stationed in 90-degree-plus heat to guard a neighborhood.

Fear is as fresh as the stubborn blood stains on the street in the 900 block of Bennett Place. Three men have been killed this year on this short stretch of three-story row homes, two within seven days of each other last month. Parents lock their children inside and few residents will talk about the violence, worried they could be next if they say the wrong thing. Resolved to stabilize the block, police pulled four metal gates across the street's mouth to restrict access and posted an officer there around the clock with orders never to leave unless a colleague radios for help nearby.

A Maryland Golf and Country Club employee reported an odor around the second hole on the course at 8:15 a.m. Thursday. A county crew followed a small stream to a manhole cover that was overflowing at 10 gallons a minute. They found an 8-inch sewer line was blocked by construction stone and grease, said Richard Rex, superintendent of water and sewers.

The 900 block of Bennett Place. Bennett Place is a two-block side street that cuts a near-microscopic path through the heart of West Baltimore. It's bordered by Fremont Avenue on the east and Arlington Avenue on the west, where the 1000 block ends. During my childhood, in which the peripatetic Kanes moved often, I'd wager we bore the distinction of being perhaps the only family to live in both the 900 and 1000 blocks of Bennett Place. On Monday, I entered Judge J. Frederick Motz's courtroom in U.S. District Court to hear William King testify at a trial in which he's charged with corruption.
