The suspension of a Baltimore City police officer this week after a videotape surfaced showing him violently assaulting a citizen in June appears to confirm what has become a depressing pattern: A brutal attack that should have merited a swift response from authorities was instead met with a passive indifference - inaction that could easily be interpreted as an attempt to cover up the brutality of the crime. Sound familiar? It should, given the furor over the publication recently of a video showing the Ravens' Ray Rice knocking his then-fiancée, Janay Palmer, unconscious in at Atlantic City casino hotel elevator in February.

A federal judge yesterday ruled that the execution of John Frederick Thanos may be videotaped and his brain waves monitored as possible evidence to determine if death by lethal gas is cruel and unusual punishment.U.S. District Judge Marvin J. Garbis said the constitutionality of the gas chamber is a "serious question" that should be decided on "the best possible evidence." He agreed with attorneys for another death row inmate that a videotape of Thanos' death could be critical evidence and must be preserved.

The search for the right college involves lots of research. The most expensive and time-consuming aspect of that research may be the most important -- the campus visit.A New Jersey company, Collegiate Choice Walking Tours, offers a low-cost alternative: videotapes of campus tours from more than 300 colleges and universities in the United States, plus a handful from Canada, England, Ireland and Scotland.The unabashedly amateurish videos follow a student-guided campus tour from start to finish.

BAGHDAD, Iraq -- The kidnappers of four members of the Chicago-based Christian Peacemaker Teams appeared in a videotape yesterday that included a threat to kill them unless all prisoners are freed from Iraqi and American jails. The videotape, dated Jan. 21 and aired by Al-Jazeera television, showed the four men - an American, a Briton and two Canadians - standing against a wall, looking thinner, paler and more haggard than in the previous videotape shown of them in November. All had grown beards and long hair; they were seen to be speaking to the camera, although the videotape had no audio, in common with other hostage videotapes issued recently.

CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. -- Marine Corps Capt. Richard Ashby was found guilty yesterday of conspiracy and obstruction of justice for hiding and helping destroy what might have been crucial evidence of why his jet sliced a ski gondola system last year, killing 20 people in the north Italian Alps.That evidence, a home videotape recorded from inside the cockpit during the flight of Ashby's EA-6B Prowler jet, was sneaked out of the plane by the pilot from Mission Viejo, Calif., and tossed into a bonfire by his co-pilot as they faced an international criminal investigation for causing the deaths at the ski resort.

A West Baltimore man captured on video attacking a police officer on New Year's Eve was convicted of second-degree assault last month in a rare bit of swift justice in the city. Manuel Imel, 40, was sentenced to 10 years in prison, with all but one year of the term suspended, for tackling an officer who was in the middle of arresting a second man. A recording of the incident was widely viewed online at WorldStarHipHop.com. It shows two officers trying to handcuff a man in the street as a crowd watches, apparently upset.

I'm writing in response to the decision of Baltimore prosecutors to reduce charges in the St. Patrick's beating ("Half of the charges are dropped in taped beating," May 10). I believe that the government should take this case more seriously. They have evidence due to this videotaping that four people beat and robbed a tourist. Is that not enough? Why are the charges being dropped? If you cannot walk down a Baltimore street without being attacked, obviously the government officials are not doing their jobs.
