    The Wandering Eye: NYPD offers counseling to BPD, a map of Baltimore vacants, and the Brass Elephant prepares to return as 'The Elephant'
    There have been several reports about how the BPD could use a pick-me-up after citizens took the streets to tell them, hey, stop killing us unlawfully. Well, the world-famous NYPD lent a hand recently, the New York Post reports. Ten officers from that department's Police Organization Providing Peer Assistance (POPPA!) came down to offer counseling to any Baltimore cop feeling particularly stressed. As Gawker points out, this counseling is a good thing. "A happy, self-actualized cop is a cop who is better at his job—and who is less likely to go WWE on a citizen who doesn’t put his hands behind his back quickly enough, or get scared and pull the trigger when he encounters a black man with his hood up." And, the post rightly concludes, similar access to mental health should be available to the citizens of Baltimore. (Brandon Weigel)
