Levi Watkins, the pioneering cardiac surgeon at Johns Hopkins Hospital, remembers the date — January 15 — because it was the anniversary of the birth of Martin Luther King Jr., and because what happened that night still makes him ache. It was 1979, and Watkins, the first black chief resident in cardiac surgery at Hopkins, had just left his office after conferring with a senior medical student named Alan Trimakas. They had agreed on the subject of a research project — cardiac neoplasms, tumors of the heart or heart valves.

Anybody who has spent any time around teenagers develops a kind of sixth sense for when they are hearing those teens lie. The elaborate explanation. The breezy dismissal. The dramatic outrage. When teens tell you it isn't a big deal, it usually is. When they tell you it is OK with the adults in charge, it usually isn't. When they tell you everything is fine, it is time to start worrying. That special sense that I am being lied to is in full bloom again, but this time it isn't my teenagers trying to get away with something.

From Cherry Hill to a West Side high school a few miles away, scores of families and friends turned out Wednesday night to mourn teenagers killed in recent days, and to decry persistent violence in the city. On the block where 14-year-old Najee Thomas was killed, residents attended an anti-violence rally. Standing on the curb was the boy who lost his best friend, now too scared to go to the school bus stop alone. In the back of the crowd was the attorney who came because she was touched that Najee had aspired to be a lawyer like herself.

The family of Zachary Sowers was understandably upset at the sentence imposed on the 16-year-old who so savagely beat the financial analyst one night last June that he remains in a coma today. After pleading guilty to robbery and attempted first-degree murder this week, Trayvon Ramos received a life sentence with all but 40 years suspended. That means he will be eligible for parole in 20 years - and then, at age 36, he would be young enough to start anew or pick up where he left off, committing crimes and destroying other families.

Pointing to statistics on motor vehicle accidents and studies of a lack of maturity among teenagers, state officials urged a House of Delegates committee yesterday to support legislation to increase restrictions on young drivers, one of Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s top priorities. Maryland transportation officials told the House Environmental Matters Committee that statistics from 2003, the state's latest, show that 146 of the 651 vehicle fatalities that year, 22 percent of the total, involved drivers ages 16 to 20. And nearly half of the young drivers involved in the fatal crashes were not wearing seat belts.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas met Monday with the teenager who allegedly was beaten by Israeli police last week, and Jewish leaders in Baltimore condemned the alleged abduction and killing of his cousin by several Israelis. In Israel, meanwhile, Hamas stepped up rocket fire at southern towns, and the government called up reserve troops in anticipation of a possible escalation of hostilities with the Islamist group that dominates the Gaza Strip. Relatives of 15-year-old Tariq Abu Khdeir, a Baltimore native who is visiting family in Israel with his parents and two younger sisters, say he was watching a protest leading up to the funeral of his cousin in East Jerusalem last Thursday when he was detained by Israeli police.

A Baltimore man was charged last month with allegedly pimping a teenage girl who had been reported missing in Baltimore County, officials said. Baltimore County police working with federal authorities on a human trafficking initiative were informed that the teenage girl, whose age was not released, had been reported missing in the county and was being featured on a website known for prostitution advertisements, officials said this week. An undercover officer scheduled an appointment for June 20 with the girl, who told him the "donation" would be $200, and arrived to meet the detective in a cab with two other people.

We still don't know all the circumstances surrounding the death of George V. King, a 19-year-old patient at Baltimore's Good Samaritan Hospital who went into a coma after being struck with an officer's Taser during a struggle with police and security staff May 6 and died a week later. But a report that one of the officers used his Taser five times to subdue the teen should raise serious questions about the appropriateness of the police use of force against an unarmed person who was heavily medicated.

Michael Newton.
