Several of Baltimore's Hispanic leaders demanded an apology yesterday from the city Sheriff's Department for the alleged beating of a member of their community who was mistaken for a bank robber and shot with stun guns. Rolando Sanchez, a Salvadoran construction worker who speaks little English, claims he was taking a lunch break at Lexington Market on Sept. 18 when at least 10 deputies attacked and humiliated him, then left him injured without calling an ambulance. "This did not just happen to Rolando, it happened to the community," Hispanic activist Angelo Solera said at a rally in the rain in front of Courthouse East.

Anne Arundel County deputy sheriffs are expected to vote tonight on the county's latest contract offer, the third in six weeks. The vote will come less than a day before a fact-finder is to issue contract recommendations. The newest offer is not much different from the last three-year pact that deputies rejected. That one would have crunched the pay scale so that workers would reach the top in 10 years instead of 22, offered an average 7 percent pay hike stretched over three years and phased in a gun and clothing allowance of about $650.

With nearly one-fourth of its deputy jobs vacant -- and more deputies planning to leave soon for higher-paying jobs -- the Anne Arundel County Sheriff's Office is struggling to fill vacancies and retain its uniformed employees. "There is a mass exodus and nobody is coming to fill the positions," said Robert Disney-Coker, a union representative for the Teamsters Local 355 that represents the deputies. Of 58 deputy positions, 14 were vacant as of Friday. Four more deputies are expected to quit soon and several more are likely to leave before the year is out. Among those leaving are the handlers of the two bomb-sniffing security dogs.
