Mykell Hatcher-McLarin, a transgender man, said he feels he has a "target on my back" in Baltimore and could be attacked at any given moment. "They are out to get me," said Hatcher-McLarin, 21. "We don't feel safe in Baltimore. " Ken Jiretsu, also transgender, says he doesn't feel safe whenever he leaves his home in the city. "I have to watch where I am and determine if I'm in danger," said Jiretsu, 42. "People treat us like a second-class citizen. " Such sentiments are shared by many in Baltimore's transgender community, a pervasive sense of fear that has become second nature after two high-profile killings in the city in recent months.

The mother of a 22-year-old woman who was raped outside a house in North Baltimore early Saturday called with additional details of the horrific attack. Some information was incomplete in the initial police report. The woman had left Mad River Bar on South Charles Street in Federal Hill but told police she had blacked out and couldn't recall anything until she was attacked in the Lake Evesham neighborhood nearly seven miles away. The victim's mother, whom we are not identifying to shield the name of the young woman, said her daughter worked at Mad River, and had not been out drinking with friends, as the first report seemed to suggest.

Shame on The Sun for its recent article on a victim, Tyrone Brown, the ex-Marine who served his country and received a honorable discharge ("Haunted by violence," March 23). The reporter twisted the story to make him seem like the shooter. He was unarmed when he was assassinated by off-duty Baltimore Police Officer Gahiji Tshamba. Mr. Brown's story didn't need to be placed on the front page. The question remains how many more loose cannons are there in the city's police department?

Charlotte Rollenhagen still remembers the first time she saw Dorothy Hutchins at Johns Hopkins Hospital. It was 1940, and the 10-year-old girl had been badly burned when her dress caught fire on the kitchen stove in her family's Highlandtown home. Her entire back was burned, as well as part of her left leg and her left arm, which she flapped in vain to put the flames out. "The picture of this little girl is indelibly placed in my mind," said Rollenhagen, who at the time was a rookie 21-year-old nurse.

I have to agree with commentator Jacob Simpson's take on the Ray Rice's domestic violence case ( "Ray Rice is not a victim," July 31). As a 60-year-old survivor of a 13-year relationship where the violence escalated from verbal to physical abuse, I remember each time I was attacked my partner screamed: "Why do you do this? Why do you push my buttons? Why do you have to be such a [expletive]!" All abusers blame the victim. The attacks on me were perpetuated by alcohol abuse, and 99 percent of the time all I did was ask a question or make a statement - which in his mind meant I had it coming.
