A Baltimore Circuit Court judge ordered a police detective to do 25 push-ups yesterday as punishment for the state's failing to turn over evidence in a timely manner. A defense lawyer intervened to cut short the courtroom calisthenics. Following an order of Judge John N. Prevas, Detective Michael Baier took off his gun and badge and completed one push-up, defense lawyer Ronald I. Kurland said. "I said to the judge, `This really isn't necessary,'" Kurland said last night. "Judge Prevas said, `Officer, stand up. Mr. Kurland has granted you a reprieve."

EVERY TOUR of duty, police officers on patrol put their lives on the line going head to head with thugs and drug-dealing vermin infesting the mean streets of Baltimore City's Eastern District. Police patrol these minefields of death with the knowledge that at any moment one of them could become the ultimate police statistic, another officer who'll never again get the opportunity to see the beauty, feel the warmth, smell the aroma, taste the sweetness, hear the melody of family. As a retired New York City police detective, I am filled with anger, hatred, sadness, depression, empathy and sympathy over the unprovoked, wanton and heinous killing of Baltimore Officer Michael J. Cowdery a year ago. I direct my anger and hatred toward the vicious urban predator who callously took the life of a decent, young urban soldier who was trying his best, against all odds, to make a difference in a community devastated by drugs and violence.

In the extensive literature of physical passion, which ranges from Valentine jingles to autopsy reports, "Love Crimes" will amount to but a footnote.A post-feminist thriller meant to be as sleek and alluring as it is provocative, it somehow never comes to much. The movie is all tease.It does move onto new ground, exploring that weird zone in the boy-girl thing that is more than seduction but possibly less than rape, when men don't beat but swindle reluctant women into having sex with them.
