I commend Maryland Sen. Allan Kittleman and the Flier for their positions advocating the removal of politicians from the state legislative redistricting process. This once-a-decade, line-redrawing process should be based on population shifts and contiguity and place emphasis on compactness and geographical and natural boundaries, like city and county lines or rivers. They should not be drawn by current office holders to protect cronies who may be vulnerable or help hand-picked candidates.

It was Halloween in Baltimore Highlands when Sterlin Corday Matthews donned a "Hellraiser" mask and went out with his friends. Before he returned home, one teen trick-or-treater had been shot to death and two others wounded. Jurors in Baltimore County took less than an hour Thursday to find Matthews, 19, guilty in the 2010 killing of Dequan Burks. The second-degree murder verdict came despite the fact that prosecutors had no gun to present in a case marked by uncooperative witnesses, who reluctantly identified the costumed shooter by his long braids and voice.
