The killing of a young black man by a police officer in Ferguson, Mo., and the subsequent military-style police response to protests has illuminated two very disturbing phenomena. One is older than our republic -- racial prejudice -- and the other is relatively new -- the militarization of America's cops. Generally, I have great sympathy for police. They get stuck dealing with all the bad consequences of our shameful failure to deal with numerous social ills, from mental health to poverty.

In both cases young African-American men just entering adulthood died violently under circumstances that fostered questions about whether they were targeted solely because of their race, and in both...

Your report of the trial of an off-duty police officer from New Jersey charged with the fatal shooting of a man in Maryland raises a couple of general questions ( "N.J. officer not guilty of murder in Arundel road rage shooting," July 30). Just what authority does an off-duty, out-of-state police officer have to exercise police powers - flashing his badge in a different state, for example? And since 911 operators have answers for just about any emergency, what would the 911 operator's response be to an out-of-jurisdiction, off-duty sheriff or police officer's call saying he was holding someone at gunpoint?

Baltimore police said Friday they have arrested a man sought in connection with the deaths of two youths in as many days last week — a violent sequence that had investigators scrambling to identify a suspect based only on vague witness descriptions. The violence began with the fatal shooting of 15-year-old Oscar Torres during a robbery early May 26. That led police to look for a stolen white Ford Fusion — and a suspect. The next day, police say, 20-year-old Kevin Simpson was driving that car when he slammed into a minivan as he fled police, killing a 12-year-old girl.
