    Sexual assault victims need competency more than comfort from BPD

    Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis says a made-over interview room at police headquarters sends a message to sexual assault survivors that "we believe you, you're safe, and we're here to help you." Here's a message for the commissioner: There's a better way to gain the trust of those who...

    Telling a child the uncomfortable truth about gender inequality

    The night after the Democratic party chose Hillary Clinton as its presidential nominee, I tried to describe the historic nature of it all to my nearly-4-year-old daughter as I tucked her in. I started strong, gleefully announcing that, for the first time, a major political party was putting forth...

    Deplorable, American and redeemable

    Colin Powell's leaked emails caused a fuss this week for stating the obvious about Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. He's a "national disgrace" who buoys "racist" plots, Mr. Powell wrote, and everything she "touches, she kind of screws up with hubris." If history is a guide, Mr. Trump likely did...

    Baltimore needs more civility in its civil servants

    Why are police in Baltimore so angry? They're shoving 87-year-old women to the floor, beating up suspects, trampling on the Constitution and sending offensive emails to colleagues with the worst lines written in ALL CAPS.

But what happened to "when they go low, we go high"? Stephen Colbert called him a P.O.S. ("part of society," the talk show host...

    The lesson in Alton Sterling's criminal past

    Alton Sterling was not an admirable man. His rap sheet (offered to media by Baton Rouge officials for $148 a copy) is 46-pages long and includes convictions going back 20 years for illegal weapons possession; battery; carnal knowledge of a teen-ager (whom he impregnated); possession of stolen property;...

    What's wrong with NYT's 'mom hair'

    The most sexist thing I read this week came not from the mind of Donald Trump but from a New York Times columnist who devoted roughly 900 words to the concept of "mom hair" in a piece so insulting I initially thought it was a parody. It laments the choice "by even the city-dwelling mom" to chop...

    Get out of jail, free

    Antonio Muhammad sat in a Baltimore jail for weeks last year on $2,500 bail after being swept up in the riot-related arrests on charges of burglary. If it weren't for a crowdfunding effort to help people like him afford bail and the efforts of his court-appointed attorney, Kerri Cohen, the 20 year...
