Baltimore PD Hates "The Wire"

Yesterday Baltimore's current Police Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld III made the claim that the city of Baltimore is struggling to eliminate the "smear that will take decades to overcome" that was brought on by HBO's The Wire.  Huh.  So you don't think that the fact that your city has had (and continues to have) an exceptionally high rate of crime may have something to do with that?  To be fair though, Baltimore has gone down in terms of overall crime making it no longer one of the 10 most violent cities in the country.  Instead it's just a city which is very violent at the prestigious ranking of 11th most violent.  Great job!  But here's just a tip: so long as your officers continue to hit men on bikes and a training program likens your city to Fallujah, how about you stop criticizing someone for not portraying it as being Miami?
