Learning more about the causes of injury and death and recommending policies that might lengthen people's lives has long been the mission of the public health community. Under those circumstances, it's hardly surprising that those in the field are concerned not only about viruses and infectious agents but also about firearm-related injuries and deaths. For years, doctors have been looking at gun violence, the nature of the injuries it causes and the policies that might prevent it. This is strictly mainstream stuff.

You published yet another misleading letter which claimed that the so-called "Palestinians" are the "actual victims" ( "American Studies Association debate ignores the real victims," March 13). There are 1 million Israeli citizens in the south of Israel who have been living in bomb shelters or within a 15-second dash of one for a decade now because "Palestinian victims" have been firing rockets into Israeli civilian areas for years. Over 50 rockets landed in Israeli towns just this week - a war crime if ever there was one. Who is the victim there and who is the criminal?

People keep talking about "discrimination," but there doesn't seem to be any realization of who exactly is being discriminated against, with both supporters of Israel and supporters of academia claiming to be the "victims.

In the wake of Howard County Police saying definitively Wednesday that there was no "domestic" motive for the Columbia Mall shooting in January that left three people dead, WBAL apologized for its reporting on the story. Most of that bad reporting came from John Patti, an anchor and reporter at WBAL Radio. His erroneous reports were also carried on WBAL-TV. “Columbia Mall shooting domestic. Former boyfriend of Zumiez clerk shot her and new boyfriend also an employee of store," Patti tweeted on Jan. 25. Patti reported more details of an alleged relationship on WBAL-TV, saying “this is indeed a domestic incident” and that the two victims were “engaged to be married.” But none of it was true, according the report from the Howard County Police today.

McMahon said Aguilar acted alone during the attack and planning. Aguilar, of College Park, killed Zumiez employees Brianna Benlolo, 21, and Tyler Johnson, 25, before killing himself.
