Earl Johnson and his neighbors were more serious about emergency preparedness after they experienced a power outage and no running water at the same time a few years ago, he said. "We had elderly people who needed water," he said. "We went to the community association first but they weren't open yet, then we went to a church. " That experience inspired Johnson, now on the Office of Sustainability's Commission on Sustainability, and he taught Baltimore residents how to find and use their resources at a free event hosted by the Baltimore Office of Sustainability Tuesday.

A South Baltimore man filed a lawsuit Monday against a city police officer, accusing the officer of punching him repeatedly during a June arrest — an incident that was captured on video.

Cosom argued a few moments before the arrest, but a woman with Truss had separated the pair, and Truss was apparently walking away from police when they decided to make an arrest. "This attack was completely unprovoked and served no legitimate law enforcement purpose," Truss' attorneys, Ivan J. Bates and Tony N. Garcia, wrote in a complaint filed in Baltimore Circuit Court.
