Diversity isn't just about race. Howard County public works mechanic and union leader Roger W. Hawkesworth Jr., for example, says he's always been a heavy man and that "has been a point of ridicule." It's one reason Hawkesworth was happy, he said, to volunteer a year ago when the county began organizing a three-pronged effort to sensitize its 2,000 employees to the similarities and differences among themselves and the quarter-million people they serve. There are cultural differences, gender issues and racial diversity to be aware of, said Jimmie Saylor, the female director of the county's Human Resources Department who is overseeing the effort.

The death of Robert Ethan Saylor, a 26-year-old Frederick man with Downs syndrome who stopped breathing last January after a struggle with off-duty county sheriff's deputies who were attempting to remove him from a local movie theater, sparked a national debate over how police treat people with developmental disabilities. Yet it remains an issue that is far from resolved. Today, Mr. Saylor's family, friends and supporters representing national disabilities rights groups met with Gov. Martin O'Malley to ask him to reopen the investigation into the circumstances surrounding Mr. Saylor's death and to demand better training for law enforcement officers who deal with people with developmental disabilities.

"Next thing I know, there are I think three or four cops holding Ethan, trying to put him in handcuffs," the aide told authorities, according to documents from the Frederick County...

My daughter, Cristina, has Down syndrome, and I feel very protective of her. Her limited mental ability to communicate and understand makes her very vulnerable. My wife and I worry sometimes about how she will be valued and protected in society when we are not there for her. For that reason, the needless death of the young man with Down syndrome, Robert Ethan Saylor, at the hands of three off-duty Frederick County sheriff's deputies and resulting closed investigation, is very disturbing to us. The three gentlemen involved are back on full duty.

On Jan. 12, Robert Ethan Saylor, a 26-year-old man with Down syndrome, died at the Regal Westview movie theater in Frederick. I did not know Mr. Saylor or his family, but I can't get his tragic death off my mind. Mr. Saylor liked the movie he saw, "Zero Dark Thirty" - he liked it so much that he wanted to watch it again. While his support staff person went to retrieve the car, Mr. Saylor returned to his seat in the theater. When he told the moonlighting sheriff's deputies providing security that he wanted to stay and watch the movie again, and refused to get up, the officers tried to physically remove him. Restrained face-down and handcuffed, Mr. Saylor died from asphyxiation caused by a crushed larynx.

IF IT'S A CLICHE to say that the Internet is sparking a "revolution" in business and culture, two seminal events last week, involving author Stephen King and software giant Michael Saylor, nonetheless crystallized the magnitude of change that's coming. For once that awful phrase "paradigm shift" seems truly apt. Mr. Saylor's move was the most spellbinding. A decade ago, the 35-year-old entrepreneur founded MicroStrategy, a software firm that helps companies better analyze their operations.

Robert Ethan Saylor didn't like to be touched, and suddenly an off-duty deputy had his hands on him. Within moments, two more deputies would grab him, the four men would fall in a heap on the floor, and Saylor, who had been shouting and resisting their attempts to restrain him, would grow quiet and still. More than two months after a man with Down syndrome died at the hands of three off-duty Frederick County sheriff's deputies, these details about his death emerged in an autopsy report released this week.

Saylor, who had Down syndrome, died later at a local hospital.
