A decade ago, the North Laurel-Savage area was seen as the PCP capital of the region. Multimillion-dollar drug labs thrived in southeastern Howard County along Interstate 95, churning out the dangerous, mind-altering substance.Changing tastes in drugs, along with tough law enforcement -- including the April arrest of an Elkridge man charged with importing PCP from California to Howard County -- have broken the PCP trade for now, police say."There are no big PCP dealers left in Howard County that we know of," says Sgt. Keith Lessner, who has worked the narcotics ZTC beat at the Howard County Police Department for 9.5 years.

The reported episodes of cannibalism are just the tip of the iceberg in a society where a lot of people, including those in the military, are searching for the next best high. And It appears recent reports of cannibalism may not be isolated episodes.

It looked like those grainy films of Selma, Ala., in 1965, and the brutality turned my stomach. They didn't really talk about Rodney King when I went through the Los Angeles Police Academy a few years later.
