It's more than a little bit disturbing that, on July 13, 2008, Tariq Alston was shot and killed in a fire hall in Joppa where about 100 people were at a party, yet no one has been charged in connection with the crime. To conclude that there were no witnesses, would be foolish. To presume there aren't a dozen or more people who were at the party who know exactly what went down that night would be naive. Yet no one has been arrested in the case, and it appears police won't be filing charges any time soon.

Law enforcement alone cannot halt the growing number of metal thefts, but Baltimore County officials hope crime-fighting legislation might limit the profit in stolen copper, aluminum and other metals. The Baltimore County Council will vote Monday on a proposal that would require scrap metal processors to be licensed, keep daily records of each transaction, including the seller's identity and vehicle information, and report all sales to the police at the end of each business day. "Theft of metals has increased 500 percent and we are spending thousands in investigative costs," said Police Chief Jim Johnson.

Late Halloween night, something terrifying happened on East Cold Spring Lane: A freshman at Morgan State University was shot in the groin. The victim, Dasheem Washington, 19, of Brooklyn, N.Y., initially told police he was taking the trash out from an off-campus home around 3:30 a.m. when he heard a `pop' and realized he'd been hit with a bullet. He said that he saw a man riding a bicycle away from the scene -- suggesting the shooting was random. The gunshot wound was real, but police believe the story was not. Yesterday, police said Washington was accidentally shot by his friend at the house -- a fellow student who they said was firing bullets in the air as a "celebratory" Halloween gesture.
