I am deeply upset from witnessing the demonstration that took place on the anniversary of the Poor People's March on Washington in 1963, when Dr. Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. inspired a generation with his famous speech ("Thousands attend Beck rally," Aug. 29). When Dr. King was gunned down, I lost my faith in humanity. I witnessed the riots that followed this abomination without surprise in 1968 from my vantage point in Chicago, where I was engaged in the Southside as a community organizer for VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America)

Milton K. "King" Hill Jr., a well-known Baltimore trial attorney who enjoyed sailing the Chesapeake Bay and Magothy River, died Sunday at Gilchrist Hospice Care in Towson of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. He was 87. "What a great guy. I started my career with him when I worked as a summer law clerk for Smith, Somerville and Case, which in those days in the 1970s was a top-notch trial law firm," said U.S. District Judge Richard D. Bennett. "I owe my career to King Hill. He got me into the courtroom early, and I was very fortunate to work with him. " "He epitomized a trial lawyer," said Ann Barbara Spicer, who worked with Mr. Hill at Smith, Somerville and Case after she joined the firm in 1965 as a young lawyer.

Charles County authorities are investigating an incident in which a retired Circuit Court judge ordered that a unruly defendant be given an electric shock during a court proceeding last month. Paul B. DeWolfe Jr., who heads the state Office of the Public Defender, called Friday for the judge to be banned from hearing cases. "What the judge did here was unconscionable," DeWolfe said in a statement. "The infliction of physical pain to silence a person is unacceptable anywhere, but especially when it is done in a court of law at the direction of the very person whose job it is to protect people's rights.

Former Maryland wide receiver Nigel King has transferred to Kansas, according to multiple reports and the player's Twitter page . King already graduated, so he will be eligible to play immediately as long as he enters into a graduate program that is not offered at Maryland. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound King had 33 catches for 450 yards and four touchdowns as a sophomore last season. But the Terps deep at wide receiver, and King was set to enter preseason camp as a backup. King will compete for one of Kansas' two outside receiver jobs.

The dark specks swirling around in big water-filled tanks at the Columbus Center hardly look like fish, much less the kings of the ocean. But from these tiny beginnings, a team of Maryland scientists hopes to unlock the secrets of "farming" Atlantic bluefin tuna, one of the most prized fish on the planet — and one of the most threatened. "For me, it's the Holy Grail," said Yonathan Zohar, a professor of marine biotechnology with the University of Maryland, Baltimore County and head of the aquaculture research center at the Institute for Marine and Environmental Technology at the Inner Harbor.

King, a Charles County foster youth living in a Baltimore residential facility, was a patient at Good Samaritan Hospital on May 7 when he began fighting with hospital security staff.

A QUICK QUIZ?Was it Martin Luther King Jr. or Malcolm X who uttered the following warning in 1963: ''The whirlwinds of revolt will continue to shake the foundations of our nation until the bright day of justice emerges.''The specter of revolt to end racism was frequently raised by the fiery militant, Malcolm X. But this warning was actually King's, ironically during his famous ''I Have a Dream'' speech, the address most often cited to show King as a moderate among more militant black leaders like Malcolm X.Yes, King opposed the ''eye-for-an-eye'' ethic advocated by Malcolm X. But the Apostle of Peace was far from the moderate caricature often presented during the annual observances of his birthday.

Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts said he wants police supervisors to evaluate whether to send officers to emergency calls at hospitals and mental health facilities, a move that brought concern from a major hospital system and the Maryland Hospital Association. Batts said the "moratorium" comes in response to an incident this month when officers were called to Good Samaritan Hospital and used a Taser on a teenage patient who later died. Eight to 10 hospital staff had been trying to restrain 19-year-old George V. King when an officer used a Taser on King five times, including four stuns applied directly to his body, according to an account from a law enforcement source.
