Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon hosted 16 mayors (http://www.mayorsagainstillegalguns.org/html/events/baltimore_summit.shtml)and city representatives from 7 states at a regional violence reduction summit where the coalition announced plans to share crime gun data in the Mid-Atlantic region. At the conference, mayors discussed the escalating crime trends and the costs of gun violence and other strategies to reduce violent crime, including intelligence gathering.

Now she was charged today with 12 counts of felony theft (http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/local/baltimore_city/bal-dixon0109,0,3147190.story), perjury, fraud and misconduct in office, becoming the city's first sitting mayor to be criminally indicted.

Sounds scary... Lots of "we have to protect and keep everyone safe" wrapped around reduction of freedom if you ask me...

Interesting timing, to say the least ... But no relevance to any legal or civil rights issue.
