Isn't it odd that the entire world knows about Michael Brown, the unarmed teenager who was killed by a white police officer on August 9 yet nobody seems to know anything about Dillon Taylor, the young, unarmed man who was shot to death by a police officer in Salt Lake City just two days later on August 11. Please, we need to stop the incessant "black on black," "black on white," or "white on black" useless, inflammatory rhetoric. Two young unarmed men lost their lives this month.

The officer involved in the fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., is getting support from the Anne Arundel County police union. The Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 70, the union that represents officers in Anne Arundel, has donated $1,070 to an online defense fund for Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. That's the largest donation listed for the campaign on the website gofundme.com. O'Brien Atkinson, an Anne Arundel County police officer and president of the lodge, said his members wanted to send money to help feed police officers working long shifts during the protests and unrest that have erupted since Wilson shot Brown on Aug. 9. But the national FOP suggested contributing to the legal defense fund instead.

What if it turns out that Darren Wilson, the Ferguson, Mo. police officer, acted in self-defense and is exonerated ( "The $1,070 message," Aug. 26)? What would you say about his behavior then? The donation issue aside, The Sun appears to have already condemned Mr. Wilson. Your comment is irresponsible and divisive. If Officer Wilson's actions are proven lawful, The Sun and many others will be left with a lot of egg on your faces.

A Baltimore police officer accepted cash payments and provided protection for a man she believed to be a drug dealer — a man who was actually working with department investigators and FBI agents to build a criminal case against her, authorities alleged Friday. Ashley Roane, a 25-year-old patrol officer in the Southwestern District, agreed to access law enforcement databases listing informants and other sensitive information for the drug dealer, and provided Social Security numbers to him as part of a scheme to obtain false tax refunds, prosecutors said.

Jason Schneider always kissed his wife before he left for work each morning. On Wednesday, before the Baltimore County tactical officer walked out the door at 4 a.m., he kissed her one last time. "I woke up and I told him I loved him. And that was the last memory of Jason alive," his wife, Ericka, wrote in a statement read aloud by a friend during Officer Schneider's funeral Saturday at St. Bartholomew Roman Catholic Church in Manchester. Officer Schneider, 36, a married father of two, died Wednesday, less than two hours after he said that last goodbye.

African American Officers of the Anne Arundel County Police Department were shocked and taken back by the donation to the defense fund for Officer Darren Wilson of Ferguson, Mo., by the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 70 Board of Directors. While we appreciate the support that the union offers to officers in need, there comes a time where leaders must take a step back and look at the totality of their decisions. This decision appeared to lack any regard for the many men and women of color, and even others with regard to the topic of Ferguson, Mo. The fact is that no criminal charges have been filed, and the facts of the case have not been fully released.

The Sun believes that "exempting police retirement income from state tax would be a mistake" ( "Pension pandering," Aug. 12). Fair enough. But when I reached the fourth paragraph of your editorial I began to see red. The inference is that "we" provide for our police and firefighters "far more generously" than we do for almost any other occupation, even within government. How about the Congress of the United States, an amalgamation of career politicians firmly entrenched close to the public teat?

I would like to write my sons a love letter about peace and post-racial living, of a wonderful time when all people move freely, of a place where black bodies are not endangered and black life is not criminalized. But that is not my story, and it is not their reality. As much as I try, I cannot hide my frustration about what happened to Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., my disgust over what happened to Eric Garner in Staten Island, N.Y., my outrage over what happened to John Crawford III in Ohio, and my horror over what happened to Ezell Ford in Los Angeles, Calif.

This week, Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon ordered state troopers to take over responsibility for maintaining order in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, following several days of unrest sparked by the killing of an unarmed black teenager by a local police officer. Mr. Nixon waited far too long to bring in the state Highway Patrol to calm the situation, but he was absolutely correct in his judgment that local authorities weren't up to the job and were actually making matters worse. Had police there exhibited the restraint shown by Baltimore officers on Thursday, when a peaceful crowd rallied near City Hall to support Ferguson's residents with a moment of silence, it's likely things never would have got to a point where the governor had to intervene.

The owner of a deli at the Inner Harbor's Light Street Pavilion wishes there were "many more Officer Rivieris to deal with our problems. " A recreational boater from Fallston credits the officer with saving her daughter's dog. And a resident of a waterfront condo praises the officer for shooing away youngsters who damaged the monument at the Columbus Piazza and called the officer's firing Wednesday "a triumph for the skateboarders. " They're talking about Salvatore Rivieri, the 19-year police veteran who lost his job after getting caught on video berating and pushing a 14-year-old boy he was trying to stop from skateboarding at the harbor three years ago. "Obviously your parents don't put a foot in your butt quite enough because you don't understand the meaning of respect," Rivieri yelled during a long, incendiary rant at Eric Bush, who appeared indifferent and rude when he repeatedly called the officer "dude.

Looks like police in Ferguson, Mo., took it upon themselves to suspend the First Amendment Wednesday night. It seems two reporters, Ryan Reilly of the Huffington Post and Wesley Lowery of the Washington Post, were working at a McDonald's, which has been used as a staging ground by reporters covering the ongoing unrest following the Aug. 9 police shooting of an unarmed African-American man. According to their accounts, the two were accosted by...

A riot can be many things. It can be an act of communal madness, reflecting the emotional imbecility of those who believe the best way to express joy at their ball team's win is to overturn a car. It can be an act of opportunism, a chance, under cover of darkness, influence of chaos, suspension of order, to smash and grab and run away, arms heavy with loot. And it can be an act of outcry, a scream of inchoate rage. That's what happened this week in Ferguson, Missouri.
