Nothing illustrates The Sun's blindness to safety on Baltimore's streets than two items in the newspaper in recent weeks. The letter from Carol Baker ("Safe in Baltimore," Jan. 18) was an answer to Eileen Pollock's previous piece on the lack of safety for Baltimore's citizens. Ms. Baker provides her personal evidence about living in Baltimore for 30 years and never being mugged and other quality of life benefits for living here and suggests Ms. Pollock should move away if she's so concerned.

The Baltimore Sun filed a lawsuit against the city police Wednesday, alleging that the agency "routinely ignores" requests for public information and demands high fees for records when pressed to provide them. The suit, filed in the Circuit Court for Baltimore City, asks for a judgment and injunction, not monetary damages. The Sun's complaint alleges that the Baltimore Police Department ignored seven applications by reporters to see records, from a file on a closed homicide case to a list of lawsuits filed against the police.

Incumbent Stephanie C. Rawlings-Blake and Michael Sarbanes, a longtime civic activist, are in a dead heat in this year's Democratic primary campaign for City Council president, with the bulk of voters undecided, according to the results of a poll conducted for The Sun. Twenty-seven percent of the likely Baltimore Democratic primary voters polled said they would vote for Sarbanes versus 26 percent for Rawlings-Blake. The poll has a margin of error of no more than 4 percentage points. But 37 percent of the electorate said they have not decided on a candidate to support, meaning the race is far from settled.

The Baltimore City speed camera ticket alleged that the four-door Mazda wagon was going 38 miles per hour in a 25-mph zone - and that owner Daniel Doty owed $40 for the infraction. But the Mazda wasn't speeding. It wasn't even moving. The two photos printed on the citation as evidence of speeding show the car was idling at a red light with its brake lights illuminated. A three-second video clip also offered as evidence shows the car motionless, as traffic flows by on a cross street.
