U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland made an appearance in West Baltimore on Tuesday night for National Night Out, a yearly nationwide event meant to strengthen relationships between residents and police. Garland talked with community members at Wilson & Etting Park in Upton but did not take reporters’ questions. Police officers mingled with young people, who played basketball and jumped rope while snacking on fresh-cut fruit and food truck nachos at the event organized by Central West Baltimore advocacy group No Boundaries Coalition. Garland later continued his visit at a Western District block party in Sandtown-Winchester.
