You hear it all the time at community meetings and you roll your eyes. But it’s true: The cops can’t be everywhere.

Police Commissioner Fred Bealefeld had nearly 600 cops‚ city cops, State Police, MTA cops, MVA cops, you name it, probably a crossing guard or two‚ stationed around the waterfront on Monday night for the city’s Fourth of July fireworks celebration.

And still a man died in what Bealefeld called “a stupid, senseless fight,” and a little boy was hit by a stray bullet. The little boy is going to recover, thank God.

There were between 70,000 and 80,000 people downtown for the fireworks by official count, and more around the waterfront from Federal Hill to Canton. Police arrested 30 people for various crimes and stupidity and took 20 teenagers to the curfew center.

They are looking for two more people to arrest.

If you have seen this fellow, or know him, or know of him, call 1-866-7LOCKUP (756-2587). Help rid the streets of a knucklehead.

And if you know, or hear of some idiot who was firing his gun in the air near Harborplace, call 1-866-7LOCKUP (756-2587) and rid the streets of another knucklehead.

Speaking of knuckleheads, there are two roaming around Highlandtown and Patterson Park, and brave and enterprising youths that they are, they’re attacking middle-aged and elderly people and robbing them.

They jumped an 84-year-old man in the 3500 block Fleet Street, for crying out loud, and other younger victims on Bouldin Street, on Gough, and on Baltimore Street in Butchers Hill.

They attack their victims from behind, hit them in the back of the head and continue to beat them as they lie on the ground. Then they rob the victims of whatever they can rummage from their pockets and bags.

If you see these youths, who are described as black males, thin builds, close cropped hair or shaved head, between 5’8” and 5’11” tall, call 911. If you know who they are call Lt. Richard Gibson or Det. Bomani Murphy of the Southeastern District Detective Unit at 410-396-2499. They want these boys badly.

We depend on the cops to keep some kind of order in this town, and they depend on us to help, because they can’t be everywhere and they can’t possibly see everything that goes on.

When it comes right down to it, we’re responsible for our own safety. When we see something‚ from a street mugging to dumping to drug dealing and don’t report it, we help the problem spread and fester. Crime grows in the dark. When citizens act as eyes and ears for the cops, we help make crime shrivel and shrink.

If we care about each other, if we want the best for Baltimore, then if we know something we will tell what we know.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake had it right at yesterday’s press conference about the Inner Harbor crimes: the people who commit these kinds of senseless, violent acts are “cowards.”

And Commissioner Bealefeld had it right when he said the city has to do a better job of holding people accountable for the “crazy things they do.”

Let’s help them out if we can.
