African American Officers of the Anne Arundel County Police Department were shocked and taken back by the donation to the defense fund for Officer Darren Wilson of Ferguson, Mo., by the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 70 Board of Directors. While we appreciate the support that the union offers to officers in need, there comes a time where leaders must take a step back and look at the totality of their decisions. This decision appeared to lack any regard for the many men and women of color, and even others with regard to the topic of Ferguson, Mo. The fact is that no criminal charges have been filed, and the facts of the case have not been fully released.

One of the first traits police recruiters ought to look for in their candidates is empathy. After all, at the heart of law enforcement is understanding the behavior of human beings and without some insight into what motivates their actions - for good or ill - it would be impossible to gain their trust or anticipate their conflicts, let alone protect and serve them. That's one of the reasons it's so disappointing to read that the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 70 which represents police officers in Anne Arundel County, has chosen to donate $1,070 to an online defense fund for Darren Wilson, the Ferguson, Mo., police officer who fatally shot 18-year-old Michael Brown, an incident that has drawn national attention and continues to stir rioting and protests in that St. Louis suburb.

Anne Arundel County public schools will launch a pilot program in the new school year giving some elementary school students instruction in specific themes, including global studies, arts and the humanities, and the use of science and technology in society. Superintendent George Arlotto said Thursday each of the nine elementary schools that feed into North County High School will take part in the program, dubbed Triple E: Enhancing Elementary Excellence. It will begin Sept. 29, about a month after Monday's start of the school year.
