Letter re: Councilman Dorsey/Fallen Officers Memorial

July 8, 2020

On 7/5/2020, I asked our attorneys at Schlachman, Belsky, Weiner, & Davey to send two letters.  One is a Maryland Public Information Act request to the BPD involving Councilman Ryan Dorsey and the second is a letter to PC Harrison advising him of Dorsey’s veiled threats to our memorial to Baltimore City Police Officers who were killed in the line of duty. This letter also clearly articulated that we expect the memorial to be protected from harm.

I consider Dorsey’s comments to be an insult to our fallen and to their families left behind.  Dorsey is an elected official in Baltimore and the silence of the other elected officials on this matter must mean they agree with him or they are currently working to have him disciplined or removed.  I can only assume that our elected officials do not agree with his threats to dishonor the memorial of those officers who died protecting our city.
