THE MINUTE I saw the police composite drawing of the black man who supposedly kidnapped Susan Smith's two boys flash across the television screen, I knew she was lying.That was several days after the Union, S.C., woman first reported that her car had been stolen with her kids -- strapped into their car seats -- still inside. When I saw the sketch of the alleged carjacker I said to myself sarcastically, "Yeah, right. A black man driving around in a stolen car with two little white boys in it would have been caught within 15 minutes.

A Baltimore police officer who arrested a young Virginia couple who claim they were asking for directions after getting lost in a South Baltimore neighborhood stated in a report that the driver argued with her and tried to tear a ticket out of a citation book. Officer Natalie N. Preston wrote in police documents that, after she ticketed the driver for running a stop sign on Round Road in Cherry Hill, the man held onto her pen before she grabbed it back and that he then refused to leave, prompting her to arrest him and his girlfriend on suspicion of trespassing on public housing property and failing to obey a lawful order.

The old cliche that hip-hop headliners never take the stage on time was true on Thursday night at Rams Head Live. TheĀ Gaithersburg-born rapper Wale, the area's most prominent hip-hop artist on a national level, took the stage around midnight, an hour after he was scheduled to perform. But according to Wale, the delay wasn't his fault. At 11:51 p.m., Wale took to his Twitter account to inform fans he had just arrived after his professional driver was pulled over by police on the way to the venue.

Many black drivers who say they have been stopped on the highway and questioned by police without cause use an ironic phrase to describe the injustice: "driving while black." In Maryland, the state police long denied bias, saying their stops were random or triggered by evidence. But last week, black motorists won overdue recognition of the fairness of their complaints with the settlement of a long-standing lawsuit against the agency. As part of its agreement with the American Civil Liberties Union, state police pledged to take steps to avoid any possibility of racial bias in the future, including the installation of video cameras in cruisers.

One day this week, the Police Blotter came up short. There were too few crimes to fill the space in the newspaper, and Richard Irwin started calling the precincts in Baltimore County. "I came up with a hot tub theft in Parkville," he told me. "In Towson, I came up with the theft of an AK-47 rifle." And so the list grows, thanks in part to the seemingly endless supply of thieves, gunmen, miscreants and thugs who prey on the good citizens of Baltimore, their exploits recorded by the cops and reported in the papers, compiled and perused in print and online like baseball box scores.

Former Chicago Bears running back Cedric Benson certainly hurt himself with his stupidity over the weekend when he was stopped by police for an alleged traffic violation that was compounded by a DUI charge. On top of that, Benson's second arrest in a little over a month creates even more cynicism concerning bad athlete behavior because there was a segment of fans who bought into Benson's contention that his boating incident back in May was a case of over-aggressive police conduct. In May, Benson was stopped on a Texas lake and cited for boating while intoxicated.

WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court said yesterday that it would consider creating a new right to remain silent - this time for people who are stopped, but not arrested, by police. A Nevada man who was standing along a roadway when an officer approached him will get a hearing to decide a basic legal question: Does the Constitution give a person the right to refuse to identify himself to police? Typically, a motorist stopped by police must show a driver's license. Similarly, passengers at an airport or individuals visiting a government office building must show identification.

Drivers of white vans with ladder racks or beat-up box trucks have found they need an alibi. Painters, plumbers, caterers and computer installers have been stopped and searched simply because police think they might be using the same type of transportation as a sniper on a killing rampage. With few other clues to share with the public, law enforcement authorities throughout Maryland and Virginia continue to receive reports from the frightened masses who see white Chevrolet Astro vans and Isuzu trucks as a threat and reason to call police.
