From the street the faded, yellow house on Belair Road looks unassuming. Three large picture windows overlook a community recreation center and an elementary school. It's around the corner from a community baseball diamond. On one recent visit, a small American flag lay discarded on the front lawn, along with a few scattered cigarette butts. A metal pipe protrudes above a side door. Before the police raided this house, prosecutors said the pipe held a surveillance camera placed there by the operators that recorded the number of men who passed through the entrance, and helped monitor the women working inside.

Several concepts that The Sun and its reporters seemingly fail to recognize are "illegal" and "affordability. " I was amazed to read in the article "Tuition bill takes a step forward in Senate" (March 10) by Annie Linskey that roughly two dozen illegal immigrants watched the debate from the Senate gallery on Wednesday. Let's get this straight now — two dozen people who are illegally in this country are watching our state Senate debate a discount for them to attend colleges in a state that has a severe financial problem.

Dan Rodricks ' column ("Bin Laden death: Call it execution, not 'justice,' May 5) was irresponsible journalism. The analogy to Baltimore police and the war on drugs was inapt. I suggest that Mr. Rodricks embed himself with the SEALs someday, fly in a helicopter at night deep into enemy territory, land in an enemy compound, engage in a firefight, and then conduct a room-to-room search for a terrorist. For every country except ours, the rules of engagement would be shoot everyone who was there.

Raid your wine cellar, corkage is coming. The governor signed corkage into law on Tuesday. The new law, which takes effect on July 1, will allow Maryland diners to bring their own wine into licensed establishments. Previously, corkage has been allowed only in unlicensed, or BYOB, establishments. A corkage bill died in the assembly last year, when the practice, which is already permitted in at least 25 other states, would have been introduced in only a handful of counties.

Why is it that when a police officer kills innocent civilians there's never a public apology offered by the force ("Reisterstown fatality raises concerns about police raids," Aug. 9). Surely such a gesture not only would help console grieving, traumatized survivors but also assist the police public relations effort by humanizing the officers involved in the eyes of the public. Instead, with a disinterested air of assuredness and infallibility, police spokespersons and apologists all too often provide dismissive justification for the killings.

The Winters Lane neighborhood in Catonsville had been on edge for more than a week. A man was shot in front of a neighborhood bar, and police were asking about Rasheed Stanford, 16, one of a group of kids who hung out at a white clapboard house on the corner of Roberts Avenue. On Aug. 28, nine days after the shooting, police arrived before dawn at the Roberts Avenue house with a warrant for Stanford's arrest. Stanford wasn't there, but Baltimore County Officer Jason Schneider became involved in a struggle that would lead to one of the department's worst tragedies in years.

A Baltimore police officer was sentenced to six months of home detention on Thursday for lying on a search warrant application to raid a house in Canton. The target of the search, David Esteppe, says Officer Adam Lewellen conspired with Esteppe's ex-girlfriend to raid his home in the 3100 block of Foster Ave. in March 2012. Esteppe has filed a lawsuit against Lewellen seeking monetary damages. The search by Lewellen and other officers turned up a gun and what police believed was drugs.

A slowdown in revenue has Baltimore school officials scrambling for budget adjustments that won't require the system to raid its rainy-day fund or cut central office positions and school programs. Officials face a $31 million deficit in next year's budget, due to factors that include a dried up stream of grant funding, fluctuating financial commitments and a halt to rapid growth in enrollment. Now, the school board has asked administrators to come up with alternatives to their proposed budget reductions, which included staff layoffs, breaking contracts and cutbacks to summer school.

Another boy in the house attempted to flee, sparking a chaotic scene that ended in the shooting deaths both Smith's nephew and a veteran officer. Stanford, now 17, was in court Wednesday on charges from the earlier shooting, and his mother spoke afterward — providing the first detailed account from someone inside the house of the fateful raid.

Baltimore police used battering rams to smash their way into suspected drug dens in a series of pre-dawn raids Tuesday that netted a half-dozen arrests, continuing what authorities describe as aggressive campaign to "dismantle" the Black Guerrilla Family gang. It was the second such strike in less than a week. Officials sharpened their rhetoric against the one-time prison gang they say has been spreading across the city and taking over drug territories through force and intimidation.

A 17-year-old charged with gun violations in the wake of the shooting that killed Baltimore County tactical officer Jason Schneider will be tried as an adult in the case, a judge ruled Thursday. Police said Taquan Barney was struggling with Schneider when another man shot the officer during a Catonsville raid in August. Barney's lawyer asked to move his case to the juvenile court system, where penalties are generally less severe and focused on rehabilitation. Defense attorney J. Eugene Miles said Barney was being unfairly held responsible for the officer's death, though he was neither the target of the raid nor the person who pulled the trigger.
