Seeking to end a spate of playground disputes that authorities said escalated well past a typical fracas, Baltimore police officers went into an elementary school this week and took four children out in handcuffs. But news of three 9-year-old girls and an 8-year-old boy shackled Thursday afternoon inside Morrell Park Elementary School — and then held for nearly 12 hours in a juvenile detention center nicknamed "Baby Booking"— has riled relatives and raised questions about whether the arrests were proper under state law. "There was no need to handcuff children," Michael Vogel, the grandfather of one of the girls who was arrested, said Friday.

Montgomery County Police are continuing to investigate the deaths of two children at a Germantown residence Friday — and said officers had been at the residence the night before responding to a call about a child left alone in a car. Friday at about 9:30 a.m., officers were called to the 19000 block of Cherry Bend Drive after a resident called 911 when they noticed a vehicle with the door open and a knife laying outside of the vehicle. Police said officers went to a townhouse and found two women and four children — two of the children dead.

On that memorable Sunday afternoon, the atmosphere was especially warm and congenial, the vibes loving in the Manhattan apartment that our middle son shared with the long-time love of his life, whom he was about to marry. Close friends and favorite relatives had gathered for the ceremony. A wedding canopy (the traditional chuppah) had been erected. There would be the traditional seven blessings recited by persons near and dear to the couple and the traditional breaking of a glass, to commemorate the destruction of the ancient Temple in Jerusalem.

I am writing in response to Susan Reimer 's column, "Adrian Peterson's version of 'Parenthood'" (Oct. 16), which borders on the reprehensible and intentionally plays on some of the Baltimore public's worst fears. First, Ms. Reimer's subtle implication that Adrian Peterson is somehow at fault for the beating death of his infant child because he was absent from the toddler's life is both illogical and offensive. Second, and more important, her use of racially-coded language, which compares athletes like Mr. Peterson to children and overly-sexed animals, relies on the kind of sophist cant that actually serves to maintain sexism and violence against children in the name of citizenship.

Parents walking their children to class Thursday morning in the Coldstream Homestead Montebello neighborhood were met by a grim sight: Crime scene tape roping off a field many cut through to get to Coldstream Elementary School. Baltimore police said a man was found shot to death in the field, adjacent to the Waverly Post Office at the corner of Montpelier Street and Homewood Avenue. On the other side of the field sits the elementary school playground. As suit-wearing Baltimore homicide detectives jotted down notes and uniformed police officers used green metal detectors and shovels to search for shells, parents and children walked past the scene on their way to school.

A little more than a week ago, little children filled the yard of the Northeast Baltimore home with playthings and laughter. Neighbors of the Denwood Avenue rowhouse recalled happy, friendly and smiling kids under the eye of an ever-watchful grandmother. Now their bikes and toys lie in a charred heap by the concrete front porch. Debris fills the yard from the deadly fire that claimed the lives of four children and the woman the Worrell family called Mama Nancy. Family members and an estimated 1,000 mourners paid final tribute Thursday to Nancy Worrell, the 55-year-old at the heart of a family that included her husband of 27 years, 14 children, 60 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
