With a resurgence of violence in Ferguson, Mo., I am reminded of a revelation that I had over 30 years ago upon becoming an inner city police officer. I learned to accept, but not fully understand, that the perceived value to human life on the street in many of the downtrodden areas of America is substantially lower than it is to the police and many others living under better socio-economic circumstances. When the two cultures of diverse values clash it often results in those with higher self-esteem being forced to take actions they would not choose to take except out of a desire for self-preservation.

Baltimore police officers involved in a violent arrest of a nightclub patron who they say resisted arrest returned to duty on Tuesday. Five police officers were involved in arresting Jamar Kennedy, 29, outside Melba's Place night club in the 3100 block of Greenmount Avenue on Sept. 23. Police said Kennedy was fighting a bouncer when officers intervened and began to struggle with Kennedy. Police say they used a Taser on Kennedy, and a cell phone video taken by a bystander showed them striking Kennedy several times with batons.

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. Kollin Truss and Officer Vincent E. 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.

The theater is dark and cool on a sweltering recent afternoon, the colored wigs, stepladders and old furniture in the aisles remnants of a just-ended community play. Handbills in a glass case recall a 1905 musical. The ceiling is antique tin. The concession stand sits not off a lobby, but among its 120 seats. If the Havre de Grace Opera House feels less like a Harford County La Scala than a blend of off-Broadway, the Roaring '20s and Mayberry, it might be because it has been asked to play so many different roles during its 144-year history.

Three years ago, I joined six of my friends in passing out vegetarian recipes and information at the Inner Harbor. Baltimore City Police officers ordered us to stop and demanded that we leave the property, under threat of arrest. So last week, we sued those officers for violating our constitutional rights. We had a First Amendment right to pass out literature at the Inner Harbor, and we had proof of our right to be there - the property management company's specific guidelines - which the officers refused to acknowledge.

Vegetarian activists have sued in federal court two Baltimore police officers who forced them to stop leafleting at the Inner Harbor — the latest legal front after years of disputes over the constitutional rights of protesters in the city. A former Baltimore teacher and three other vegetarian activists filed the lawsuit last week in U.S. District Court over events that took place in May 2011. The lawsuit, which does not name the city nor the Police Department, alleges the officers violated their constitutional rights.

Jurors began deliberations Friday in the trial of two Baltimore police officers accused of assaulting a man during a 2011 drug arrest in which the suspect attempted to hide in the home of one officer's girlfriend. Sgt. Marinos N. Gialamas and Officer Anthony Williams were charged after the drug arrest of Antoine Douglas Green, who police said ran from officers and broke into the home of Williams' girlfriend in the 2200 block of Prentiss Place in East Baltimore. Prosecutors said Green was assaulted by officers in the kitchen after he was brought back into the home in handcuffs.
