The officer involved in the fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., is getting support from the Anne Arundel County police union. The Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 70, the union that represents officers in Anne Arundel, has donated $1,070 to an online defense fund for Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. That's the largest donation listed for the campaign on the website gofundme.com. O'Brien Atkinson, an Anne Arundel County police officer and president of the lodge, said his members wanted to send money to help feed police officers working long shifts during the protests and unrest that have erupted since Wilson shot Brown on Aug. 9. But the national FOP suggested contributing to the legal defense fund instead.

"One voice! One community!" they chanted. And later, "Enough is enough!" As rush hour traffic passed by, dozens of people joined hands at a gas station near Fort Meade on Monday to remember a man killed this month while trying to earn a living. Rajinder Kumar, 49, was fatally shot Aug. 7 during his overnight shift at the Exxon station at Ridge Road and Route 175 in Hanover. A man came into the store, shot the clerk and took an undetermined sum of money, according to police. Kumar, who colleagues said sent his earnings to his wife and children in India, was Muslim; last week the Anne Arundel County Muslim Council chipped in money with the FBI and Metro Crime Stoppers to offer an overall $27,000 reward in the case.
