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.

A veteran Baltimore police detective must resign from the department after being placed on probation for stealing groceries with her daughter, a cashier at the store where the theft occurred. Darlene Early, a Western District detective who joined the department in 1990, entered an Alford plea Wednesday to one count of theft under $1,000. An Alford plea allows a defendant to maintain innocence while admitting that prosecutors have enough evidence for a conviction. Her 18-year-old daughter, Ciara Anderson, pleaded guilty to the same charge, prosecutors said.

The 32-year-old woman was walking through a midtown alley last January when a man pressed a gun to her shoulder and told her, "Don't scream. " At the hospital, where she was treated for vaginal bleeding, the woman recounted being raped at gunpoint, in a vehicle with black leather seats. When it was over, her attacker told her to walk away slowly and not look back. The police detective's report reflects the tone of his questioning in the hospital room: Why had she waited two hours to call police?

Richard Thomas Palmer, a retired city police officer and active church member, died of a heart attack Friday after collapsing at his Southwest Baltimore home. He was 62. A Baltimore native, Mr. Palmer was raised on Leeds Street and eventually bought the house across the street from the one his parents had owned. He graduated in 1958 from Edmondson High School and served in the Marine Corps as a field radio operator before becoming a police officer in 1961. "He had a photographic memory, never forgot a face - that's what made him such a good street cop," said longtime friend and fellow detective Oscar Requer.

Then he called his city councilwoman, Rochelle "Rikki" Spector, wondering why the detective didn't have voice mail. Spector soon discovered: No detectives had voice mail in her district.
