Why would Obama bother with State House now?

      The 'thugs' found an easy mark

      After watching this past week's "protests" in Baltimore play out, I feel new battle lines need to be drawn between the law and the criminals ("A step toward justice for Freddie Gray," May 1). We need an all-out "war on thugs."

      Riots sent a message, but was anybody listening?

      I fear that neither Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake nor Gov. Larry Hogan are getting the message behind the protests that have taken place during the last week.
