Annapolis Alderman Herbert H. McMillan is considering amending his controversial anti-loitering bill so that police could only ask drug offenders with at least two previous convictions to move along.McMillan, a Ward 5 Republican, said he started contemplating the amendment after a public hearing Monday night, where some people protested against the portion of his proposal that allows police to ask anyone convicted of drug possession, use or distribution to move along.Opponents argued that the bill would unfairly target those convicted long ago who had cleaned up their act afterward.

But police officers had no jurisdiction over the sidewalks, which are the property of the Annapolis Housing Authority.So Alderman Herbert H. McMillan studied the loitering laws of big cities such as Chicago and Baltimore, and decided Annapolis could use an ordinance allowing police to ask suspected drug dealers on public housing sidewalks to move along.But what the first-term alderman pitched as a simple fix has plunged him deep into the quagmire of racial tensions in America.
