  • Rethinking juvenile justice

    It's been nearly four years since the U.S. Supreme Court barred states from mandating terms of life without the possibility of parole for juveniles convicted of certain offenses.

    The FOP's offensive tweets

    Baltimore Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 3 President Lt. Gene Ryan says he did not authorize two gloating tweets the union sent out over the weekend in the wake of Officer Caesar Goodson Jr.'s acquittal on charges related to Freddie Gray's death. As soon as he found out about them, he said, he...

    Supreme Court's immigration failure

    This week's Supreme Court deadlock on immigration was unfortunate for a number of reasons, beginning with how it ensures the nation's dysfunctional immigration system remains in full, chaotic status quo for the near-term. But it also accomplishes something else — it should focus voter attention...

  • Mosby demonstrated leadership

    Baltimore City State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby is a courageous public servant. She took action to bring justice to the citizens of Baltimore in charging police misconduct. The system in America has not shown a fair administration of justice in the prosecution of shootings of African Americans and...

  • How to treat chickens more humanely

    Congratulations and thanks to Purdue Foods for its announcement that it will provide more conditions for 700 million chickens raised by its contractors ("Purdue plans to reform its chicken welfare policies," June 27). Now it's up to consumers to do their part — stop eating chicken and other meats....

  • Baltimore's deadly code of silence

    The Black Lives Matter movement asks white people to stand with it for a society-wide cure of the forces that have concentrated blacks into pockets of poverty, enforced laws against their only neighborhood employer and by default executed a strategy of containment or incarceration. I feel their...

  • Guns and terrorism

    Instead of a sit-in for gun control ("Maryland Democrats among those at House gun control 'sit in,'" June 22), maybe the time spent by House Democrats protesting Republicans' position on gun control would have been better spent asking President Barack Obama to bring the heads of the FBI, the CIA...

  • Building a better Hamilton

    Mark Twain was once quoted as saying that "the rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated." This is what came to mind as I sat listening at a recent City Planning Commission meeting. It was there I heard an attorney from neighboring Mayfield tell us that everyone knew the Hamilton business...

    Trollishness pervades American politics in 2016

    Once upon a time, only billy goats and hobbits had to worry about trolls. Now, they are a problem for all of us. Narrowly defined, trolls are the anonymous, nasty-spirited provocateurs who roam the Internet dropping incendiary messages into the middle of online discussions, getting their kicks...

    We've failed Sherdavia Jenkins, and others like her

    I still remember your funeral. I still remember the white casket, small with only two handles on each side. I still remember the red teddy bear someone had placed near your head. I still remember then-Florida state lawmaker Dorothy Bendross-Mindingall weeping over your coffin, then-Congressman...

    Politicians never let a good crisis go to waste

    In the aftermath of the Orlando massacre, the Democrats applied a law that serves them well: "Never let a good crisis go to waste." So they used the bodies of the dead as leverage for their politics and framed the national debate in terms of gun control rather than terrorism inspired by the radical...

  • Character no longer counts

    Character no longer counts

    Ranking right up there with the line, "Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the play?" is this recent headline in The Washington Times: "Honesty issues aside, voters still back Hillary Clinton, poll shows." Though Ms. Clinton's negatives appear higher than that of any Democrat running...

    Trump squanders the post-primary breathing spell

    In presidential election years, the time between the state party primaries and the national political conventions usually is an opportunity for the presumptive nominees to take stock and gear up for the fall campaign. But so far Donald Trump has squandered the interlude with antics and remarks...
