As the murder trial of a man Baltimore police labeled "Public Enemy No. 1" started this week, a prosecutor added a new twist to the case: Ramon Rodriguez was murdered, she said, because his killer had discovered he was helping police with an investigation. When authorities named Capone Chase as their most-wanted fugitive in July 2013, they made no mention that his victim was a police informant. They focused instead on the brutal details of the crime: The 21-year-old Rodriguez on his knees, shot through the head at a Greektown playground.

THE PROBLEM -- Cars parked illegally along Fayette Street in front of city police headquarters. THE BACKSTORY -- Even the city's most prolific and daring scofflaws would probably think twice about parking in a clearly marked no-parking zone in front of a police station. Try doing it in front of the Bishop L. Robinson Sr. Police Administration Building at 601 E. Fayette St. Most people would expect a ticket. Or worse. But one recent day, not just one person but several people decided that it was OK to park in front of the police headquarters.

The 11-story police department headquarters that Baltimore built downtown in the early 1970s has been notorious for its mechanical defects, but that is not the only area where it failed.As seen from the skyline on the edge of the municipal district, the building at 601 E. Fayette St. looks more like a commercial office tower than the command center for the department whose officers are sworn to protect the citizens of Baltimore.With its reflective glass windows and polished granite surface, it is also an austere fortress that appears cut off from the city.
