As a co-plaintiff in the lawsuit against Baltimore City Police Officers ("Police officers aren't above the law," May 29), I feel violated knowing that these officers intentionally intimidated and threatened me. After the police officers threatened me with arrest for handing out free recipe books, I was walking back to my car when they approached me again and detained me on the street. When I asked why they had stopped me and demanded to see my identification, they stated that they were conducting an investigation and led me to believe that if I didn't comply, I would be arrested.

The Baltimore City Police are looking for a suspect in a brazen daytime murder witnessed by many, but no one is talking. In keeping with the urban street code where no one speaks for fear of retaliation, De'ontae Smith's murder the day of the Ravens downtown parade remains a mystery ("Police believe stabbing victim was downtown for parade" Feb. 6). The "stop snitching" mantra of urban youths is the code of the street. For fear of reprisals and harm, many urban crimes, such as murder, go unsolved.
