FORD HEIGHTS, Ill. -- The body was still smoldering well past midnight when police in this gritty suburb responded to a report of a person set on fire.The man the two officers found lying near death on Greenwood Avenue was not unfamiliar to them. They had left him there -- a stranger in a dangerous neighborhood -- just 15 minutes earlier.They left him there, one witness said, although he was "shaking like a leaf" and pleading not to be abandoned.The violent death of Richard Will two weeks ago has prompted investigations into the conduct of the two police officers and raised questions about whether race was a factor in the incident.

The headline says it all - "Baltimore police consider using nonlethal tranquilizers in animal cases" (June 20). Duh! You think? Why hasn't a plan been in place to use tranquilizers since a steer has escaped in the city before and dogs have always gotten loose? How can a city not have a plan? I was horrified that the police felt their only option was to kill that steer who after escaping death at a slaughterhouse and running for his life, was shot and killed. Other cities like Queens, N.Y. and Cincinnati, Ohio have been able to get these brave souls that do not want to die to an animal sanctuary.

Bike riders with the Police Unity Tour stopped at the Harford County Sheriff's Office Southern Precinct in Edgewood Sunday morning, as part nationwide ride that culminated in Washington, D.C., Monday at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial. The national ride, which had an estimated 1,700 participants from around the country, is organized to raise awareness of the sacrifices police officers make, particularly those who died in the line of duty. May 15 is National Peace Officers Memorial Day, as proclaimed by President John F. Kennedy in 1962, and the week in which that day falls is celebrated as National Police Week.

Out of more than 120,000 documented citizen stops by Baltimore Police last year, only 494 resulted in a search and just nine guns were recovered, according to data the agency released to the American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland. The data offers a snapshot of police enforcement on the city streets, though the ACLU said it raises more questions than it answers and on Tuesday called on the department to keep better track of how much officers conduct "stop and frisks. " "Everything about the BPD's response - and lack thereof - to the ACLU's request for public records demonstrates that the BPD has completely failed to supervise how officers deploy 'stop-and-frisk- tactics against Baltimore residents, despite complaints about abuse of the tactic stretching back over a decade," the ACLU said in a statement.

Baltimore Police are doing away with use of the term “stop and frisk,” though officers will continue to be able to use the controversial search tactic. Baltimore's Deputy Police Commissioner Jerry Rodriguez said that national controversy over the New York Police Department's heavy use of the practice has led to a negative connotation from which police must distance themselves. “Anybody in any department that would keep that name, in my opinion, would be remiss,” Rodriguez said in a recent interview.

Two weeks after a federal judge declared New York City's stop-and-frisk policing unconstitutional is an odd time to ask the question, but here goes: Would New York-style stop-and-frisk policing reduce Baltimore homicides to such a low level that Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's goal of growing the city by 10,000 families would start to look plausible, even overly modest? More directly: Would a general stop-and-frisk order have saved Delmonte Thomas' life? As of Friday, he was Baltimore's latest homicide victim — not even 20 years old, gunned down in West Baltimore a few blocks from Coppin State University, on Westwood Avenue, about 10:20 p.m. Thursday.

Cops are starting to talk like the rest of us. The Maryland State Police became the latest law enforcement agency to throw out its cryptic language, directing officers this week to stop telling each other "10-4" and instead just say "OK. " It's a transformation of seismic proportions — veteran officers who in the academy had to memorize the codes and got in trouble for calling in "livestock on highway" instead of a "10-54" will now have revert...

Ravens running back Ray Rice probably didn't have much free time this week to begin with, as the Ravens play the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday. But he had to spend part of Tuesday explaining a recent tweet anyway. Rice posted on Twitter Monday night that he was pulled over by a Baltimore County police officer because of the dark windows in his white Range Rover. Maryland State law prohibits car windows from being tinted at more than 35 percent, a limitation enacted primarily to ensure police officers can see inside vehicles as a safety measure.
