Here we go again! In Peter Hermann 's article on theft of gutters ("Homeowners aggravated as thieves target copper gutters," Dec. 5), once again the scrap metal industry is blamed for the problem of stolen metal. As the owner of a scrap metal company that has been in business since 1917, I am sick and tired of my industry being unfairly blamed for metal thefts. To be clear, my business only buys metal from business, industry and government, so we have zero exposure to stolen metal.

A federal judge imposed a six-year sentence Friday on Jacob Theodore George IV, who sold heroin on the online drug bazaar Silk Road. George, 33, an Edgewood man with a history of arrests, drug abuse and mental health problems, apologized to the judge. He said he cried as he confessed to the federal agents who caught him. "I made a bad decision helping with Silk Road," George said, reading from prepared notes. George, who was taken into custody in early 2012, was one of the first dealers on the site to be arrested.

So far in 2014 there has been at least one murder per day in Baltimore. Yet The Sun continues to harp on law-abiding gun owners and minimizes the obstacles that have been forced upon them to legally purchase a firearm ("Panicking over Md.'s gun law," Jan. 13). The criminals involved in the murders do not care about the laws that are passed. If they did, they would not kill, steal or deal or use drugs. Your efforts would be better spent on convincing the city population that crime does not pay. Any law-abiding citizen who had any interest in owning a firearm at any time in their future life could see the advantage of buying it before these ridiculous laws went into effect.

By the time D. Watkins was in his early 20s, he had filled a shoe box with obituaries. Kids he had grown up with in East Baltimore. Classmates, neighbors, guys from the corners. His uncle. And, eventually, his older brother. The brief paragraphs and grainy photos testified to lives cut short, lives touched by the drug trade: users, dealers, those caught in the crossfire. Watkins had 120 thin brochures from funerals, enough to fill a Nike box. They were the only printed records of the lives of people he cared about.

Davon Martin, 25, was a member of a group known as Little Spelman, which was locked in a bitter war between 2011 and 2012 with another group, called Up Da Hill. His guilty plea to racketeering conspiracy highlights the interwoven nature of violence in some city neighborhoods. "Many of the shootings and murders in Baltimore City result from disputes between rival drug gangs," said U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein.
