Baltimore's spending panel is asked Wednesday to approve about $4,700 in back pay for a city police sergeant who was suspended without pay after allegedly pointing a gun at her 20-year-old son's head. The Board of Estimates will vote whether to pay back salary to Robin Blackmon while she was suspended for about a month in 2013, under an agreement with the Police Department and the union. The board also is asked to provide back pay of about $105,000 to Carlos M. Vila, a former police sergeant accused of secretly recording a conversation with a judge.

The state's highest court ordered a new trial Wednesday for a former Baltimore police sergeant convicted nearly two decades ago of murdering his young mistress - a ruling that could affect cases that relied on bullet testing used for decades until being debunked. Gina Nueslein, a 22-year-old clerk at a Royal Farms, became entangled with Sgt. James Kulbicki, who was 14 years her senior, in a relationship that soured as she sued him for child support. Twenty years later, Kulbicki has a chance to demonstrate the innocence he has maintained, but Nueslein's family must experience the ordeal of her death again.

During opening statements in a civil trial Thursday, attorneys for two sisters said Baltimore police fabricated information to justify unconstitutional strip searches performed on the women in the back of a Brooklyn bar. But lawyers for the two officers being sued said the searches - which they say turned up cocaine, marijuana and painkillers - were appropriate and the result of a sergeant's witnessing drug dealing. They say the lawsuit is motivated by money. It's an expected back-and-forth between sides.

James Dixon joined the Baltimore Police Department in 1954 as a black officer in an era of widespread racial prejudice. Police posts were segregated and blacks were not allowed in patrol cars On Tuesday, a quarter-century after he retired as a sergeant, Dixon returned to the department for a ceremony to honor his service and thank him for his role in helping the department through a time of social change. Dixon, 77, was given a BPD hat and coffee mug. "I think today was really good for him because I don't think he realized how far the Police Department has come," said Derrick Dixon, James' son. "So for him to come out here and see a lot of Afro-American officers and commissioners, I think it blew his mind.

The violence erupting on the former battlefields of Operation Iraqi Freedom coupled with the planned withdrawal from Afghanistan raises new concerns over the recent exchange of five Taliban commanders for U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. The swap conflicted with traditional hostage recovery policy and trading of war prisoners and may lead our enemies to conclude that we're now willing to negotiate with kidnappers - potentially endangering lives abroad. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, leader of the self-proclaimed Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, was himself an insurgent detainee released by the U.S. in 2009.

First there was the infamous speed camera ticket that Baltimore issued to a car stopped at a red light. Now comes evidence that the city's former contractor approved a speeding citation for another vehicle that couldn't possibly have been going too fast — because it was parked. "Things like this will kill the program!" Baltimore police Sgt. Paul McMillian told officials with the city and Brekford Corp., the former contractor, in an April 13 email obtained by The Baltimore Sun. McMillian said that "the blue pickup truck is clearly parked against the curb lane," yet Brekford approved the speed camera ticket and forwarded it to the Police Department for review.
