Baltimore police commissioner is stepping down...but why?

Two weeks ago, the Sun reported Baltimore Police Commissioner Bealefeld intends to step down on August 1. This was not met with sadness in my house, though we were confused...rumor had it the guy intended to keep the position for a good long while yet.

Turns out this might be his way of avoiding another scandal (anyone else remember this? how about this?). Most folks already knew about this incident, where a man was stripped and beaten by a crowd of teenagers. Sounds like things were far worse than anyone actually reported to the public. In fact, it sounds like it was almost a riot. And this is the first we're hearing about it.

Someone tell me what's so great about Baltimore? For some strange reason, I just don't get it.

4 years before that can seriously become an option. If Chris didn't own the house, we'd have moved already.
