    CBS News Baltimore ^ | October 20, 2016 | Mike Hellgren
    Baltimore City State’s Attorney is calling for major changes in investigations of police misconduct. State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby pushes reforms for officer misconduct cases, including granting her office arrest powers. Do her proposals go too far or do they fix a broken justice system? Mosby wants the power to limit officers from choosing bench trials–after the strategy proved successful for the officers she charged in Freddie Gray’s death. It’s one of several changes the state’s attorney is asking for in police misconduct cases.

    America is a two-party system and after party conventions select the nominees, we have two choices and only two choices. Both nominees have demonstrated serious character flaws. The current spotlight is on lewd, vulgar comments from Donald Trump that cannot be defended. Nevertheless, his words could never be used to justify a vote for Hillary Clinton and her leftist agenda. Those morally pure conservatives who believe they cannot in good conscience vote for Mr. Trump but don’t like Mrs. Clinton need to define what outcome they are seeking by voting third party or not at all. With America at a...

The first nine-mile segment would run between Shady Grove and the Metropolitan Branch MARC commuter rail station in Gaithersburg. Delaying the...

    In their rush to provide a warm, inclusive and diverse environment for all, save--of course--Christians and conservatives, university officials might want to ask themselves whether they are becoming what Pope Francis called "gender ideologues" and engaging in their own stereotyping. Not far from our office in Bethesda, Maryland, in College Park, "The University of Maryland has been named to Campus Pride's 2016 'Best of the Best' Top 30 list of LGBTQ-friendly colleges and universities" for promoting "diversity, inclusion and safety for LGBTQ students." Further away, in Richmond, Virginia's state capital, Virginia Commonwealth University is celebrating "forty years of LGBTQ activism."...

    As Justice Department civil rights lawyers held a meeting to talk about overhauling the Baltimore police department, another group of Baltimore residents gathered to beg the police to fix the crime in their neighborhoods. The meetings show a disconnect between those who are concerned about crime and those worried about police reform, reports the Washington Post. Neither group was aware the other one was meeting.

    Gerrymandering is something Democrats usually whine about. It’s easy for them to do with Republicans controlling an unprecedented amount of state legislatures and gubernatorial seats in modern history – these entities deciding how congressional districts are drawn after the U.S. census is completed every ten years. However, there are undoubtedly cases of gerrymandering taking place in Democrat-controlled states. Maryland is one such example and a law school student has taken their antics to court. Steve Shapiro, an American University student, has challenged the districts drawn by former Governor Martin O’Malley and the blue legislature on first amendment grounds. The case...

    The professional Soros migration/refugee agitators are rallying the street radicals to come to Washington, D.C., this Sunday, August 28. The aim of #DCRally4Refugees is to whip up the appearance of popular support for the UN’s September 19 Refugee Summit and President Obama’ plan to “surge” thousands more Syrian “refugees” into American communities. The #DCRally4Refugees is being organized by dozens of radical-Left groups funded by billionaire hedge fund mogul George Soros (shown) and his Open Society Foundations. As we reported last week, hacked documents from the Open Society Foundations (OSF) database have confirmed what was long known to readers of The...

    WASHINGTON — In the blazing heat they walked up and down Old Ellicott City’s flood zone — a group of young people sometimes trudging up the hills, sometimes dashing door to door to help residents hit by the flash floods that rushed though the city July 30. The teenagers, high school and college students volunteering with Centennial Relief, were pushing a wheelbarrow filled with fresh fruits and vegetables and bag lunches, which are all free to the families affected by the flash flooding. Many homeowners had recently returned to see basements and first floors filled with soaked furniture and carpets....
