Brandon Finney worked at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center for only a few months, but he had quickly earned a reputation as hardworking and motivated. His hospital colleagues came Tuesday — some in pink scrubs— along with other mourners to the chapel at the Vaughn C. Greene Funeral home in Randallstown to pay their respects to the young father. Finney died last week after he was fatally shot on his way home from work as he waited at a Saratoga Street bus stop. Police said Finney was an innocent bystander who was used as a human shield amid a gang fight between the rival Black Guerrilla Family and the Bloods.

Many consumers these days are pretty savvy about comparison shopping for goods and services. But they might not know that they have certain rights when it comes to buying funeral services. The Federal Trade Commission sent out a reminder this week, after suing an Alabama funeral home for failing to provide pricing information as required. Consumers are entitled to only buy the goods or services they want when it comes to funeral planning.  According to the FTC, consumers should receive an itemized price list when they go into a funeral home to arrange a service.

Funeral services are expensive, as any Marylander who has laid a loved one to rest can affirm. The average funeral cost in the Old Line State was $5,682 in 2002, the last year for which federal data are available. Funerals also are expensive in other states, but Maryland's costs are much higher than they need to be. A recent Washington Post exposM-i revealed that a World War II-era state law that supposedly was enacted to protect consumers from fly-by-night morticians is being used by existing funeral homes to block legitimate competitors from opening shop.
