Four men who allegedly used profits from Baltimore's drug trade to try to make a name in the rap music business face rarely used federal racketeering charges that could bring the death penalty, federal authorities announced yesterday as they linked the group to as many as five unsolved city homicides. These include the slaying in March 2002 of an associate of former heavyweight boxing champion Hasim S. Rahman and a woman the man was dating at the time. The group also is charged with a second double killing less than a month later - a crime solved in part with the help of an inadvertent cell phone message.

AM I THE ONLY one who read Sun reporter Sarah Schaffer's story with a sense of dM-ijM-` vu? I certainly hope so. The story ran Sunday under the headline: "Questions persist in death of black teen." Schaffer's story was about the death of Noah Jamahl Jones, whose 17 years on this Earth ended prematurely July 24 after he and two friends were involved in a fight with another group of guys in Pasadena. Four men were charged with Jones' death. Anne Arundel County prosecutors have dropped the charges - for now. Jones was black, and the four men are white.
