Detective ward was the best police detective I have ever known, I have always wonder why such a good man worked in one of the worse areas in Baltimore , and yet it never end changed him, I remember when my mother and I heard the bad news that was a terrible sad day for both of us my mom really loved detective ward. She always said if they could get more police like him , Baltimore would be a Nice place to live.
