A Holabird Middle School student was disciplined after an inoperable starter pistol was found in his locker Wednesday, Baltimore County schools officials said. The Dundalk school sent a letter home with students about the discovery of the gun, and an investigation involving county police indicated that the student did not plan to threaten or hurt anyone, schools spokesman Charles Herndon said. A starter pistol shoots blank shells or caps and is typically used at sporting events. "Possession of such a device is still a serious offense, however, and the school has taken appropriate disciplinary action," the letter signed by Principal Julie Dellone states.

Thieme Jr. said he will further study the issue of whether Arthur C. Tate Jr. was coerced into consenting to the Feb. 27 search that produced key evidence in the prosecution's case. He will rule on the defense motion to suppress the evidence -- a pair of brass knuckles and a wallet belonging to the victim -- as well as several other motions at a later date.

Police said that in April 2008, off-duty officer Norman Stamp burst out of a Southeast Baltimore strip club with brass knuckles on his hand, barreling toward a brawl involving members of his motorcycle club that had spilled into the street. That's when, according to police, the 44-year-veteran got into a confrontation with a uniformed officer sent to quell the fight, pulled his service weapon and was fatally shot. An attorney for Stamp's widow said Thursday — the first day of trial in a wrongful-death civil suit brought against Officer John Torres — that there's a different story that the Police Department wanted to suppress.

My first reaction to that cell-phone video of Jolita Berry being pummeled by one of her students was this: Any one of the teachers of my youth could have taken that girl, easy. But then, I didn't go to Reginald F. Lewis High School in Baltimore; I went to Catholic school in suburban Chicago where the nuns - however wizened and, at least in my earliest grades, weighed down by their veils, robes and swinging ropes of rosaries - were quite fearsome. They could drag kids of any size by the ear and slam them into the supply closet, which I guess would be the pre-historic, pre-litigious version of today's time-out.

Two rows of men, police officers and bikers, faced each other yesterday morning - lining the edges of Old Eastern Avenue as bagpipes played and city police carried the casket of Norman Stamp to a waiting hearse. The police wore their dress uniforms to honor the death of the man who spent the past 44 years working for the city's Police Department. The motorcycle riders wore the red cross of the Chosen Sons on their backs to signal their association with the motorcycle club that Stamp helped to found 39 years ago. It was an unusual sendoff for a man who was one of the city's longest-serving police officers.

Around the Baltimore County Courts Building, it is known simply as "the box." To a layperson, it looks like a prop for a gang war. For Sheriff R. Jay Fisher, it is a reminder of why security has been one of his top priorities during his first year in office. The box, taken out for sheriff's office training sessions and occasional judiciary show-and-tells, holds the collection of items seized from people entering the courthouse in recent years. There are brass knuckles with ugly-looking spikes, belt buckles that hide knives, a compact that looks like a lipstick but twists out a blade instead.
