An attorney for a teenager who said his jaw was broken in an encounter with Baltimore police dismissed the city's civilian review board as a "proxy" for police after nearly three years have passed without a ruling on the case. In July 2010, Yardell Henderson, then 16, filed a complaint with internal affairs in which he said he was beaten by police in Northwest Baltimore during an incident that did not result in his arrest or criminal charges. He also contacted the civilian review board, a volunteer panel formed to great fanfare in the late 1990s, to provide a check on police.

A violent start to the year continued with three people shot on Baltimore's west side Tuesday morning, including a 17-year-old girl who died after she and a man were shot in an alley. Though the city started the year with almost 11 days without a gun homicide, it belied a string of nonfatal shootings that was higher than the beginning of 2012. Five people were killed last weekend, and the city has started off 2013 with a 65 percent increase in gun violence compared with the same time last year.
