WHAT, SOME curious readers have asked, were the Veney raids? I'm older than I'd like to think. At one time, most Baltimoreans knew what the Veney raids were. As those of us in the baby boomer generation get older, we assume those younger know what we know. We assume that events from December 1964 are common knowledge. But they aren't. Sam and Earl Veney robbed a liquor store in December 1964. The two black men also shot two police officers, killing one. They were caught and convicted.

The people of Baltimore, particularly his victims' families, deserved to be finished with Sam Veney forever.He killed a police sergeant and almost killed a lieutenant nearly 30 years ago. He was spared the death penalty. He received life in prison. The people who lived through the tragedy Veney and his brother wrought, Christmas Day 1964, should have been spared from hearing his name ever again, except in the footnotes of local history.Instead, Sam Veney is front-page stuff again. He is a fugitive, having failed to return from a weekend pass.
