For minutes on end New Year's Eve night, the names and ages of 216 men, women and children who were killed in Baltimore in 2012 were read out loud on the steps of the city's War Memorial — a somber recap of a violent year in which homicides rose. "In a city where so many people are immune to these senseless crimes, it is imperative that we remember the victims," said Victoria Kent, a member of the Baltimore Guardian Angels community watch group, as about 50 others stood by. The vigil, in its fourth year, was attended by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts, City Council President Bernard C. "Jack" Young, council members Brandon Scott and Carl Stokes, members of the clergy and various city activists.

Before I retired as a sergeant from the Baltimore Police Department in 1996 after 23 years of service, I had worked in a variety of staff positions. Given my background, I probably know more than the average Baltimorean about how difficult a job being the police commissioner can be without a competent staff to offload the pressure to comment on every criminal incident occurring in the city. Recent quotes by city Commissioner Anthony Batts tell me he needs a surrogate like the late Dennis Hill - a former journalist who served for 22 years as the director of public information for the police department - to help him vent his spleen about how he feels about violent crime in the city in a much more constructive, less defensive manner, and perhaps tutor him about how to talk extemporaneously.

Police said they did not receive any emergency calls reporting gunfire in the area, but investigators believe the man was killed there after finding shell casings near the body.

Just three of Baltimore's 235 homicides in 2013 have a known drug motive, and police say 30 of the victims were verified gang members, year-end statistics show.

Batts said in television interviews that up to 85 percent of the victims of the city's gun violence were black men involved in the drug trade. He was not available for further comment. Black males made up 84 percent of the city's homicide victims in 2013.
