The Glover Report: The Unsolved Murder of Robert Lee Clay
#1. Among pertinent information, other than the check mark next to ‘suicide’ as ‘cause of death’, is that the gunshot was to the left side of the head. Ironically, Clay was right handed;
#2. The report contains a photo of Clay’s body found at the scene with his feet resting on the second step; the rest of his body was on the ground laid out flat. Such a suicide done on the steps would be very rare – according to information in the report;
#3. Clay reported to those close to him that he was receiving death threats as late as the Thursday before the Monday he was killed; and
#4. The gun found at the scene was stolen from Frederick, Maryland several years ago. Further, no one questioned knew of the gun.
Further, Clay was found with hundreds of dollars in his pocket. And, being the meticulous man he was, would he actually kill himself right where he knew his daughter would likely be the first to find him? Read in Full >>
Community Outraged at Police-Involved Shootings; Police Say Still Under Investigation :: The Case of David Yim
J. Wyndal Gordon, affectionately known as the “Warrior Lawyer”, told BMORENEWS, “The man was shot in the stomach.” He continued, “I think it’s despicable – what happened to him. There is a pandemic of police-involved shootings. It’s totally out of control at this point. It’s not going to stop unless we take direct court action and lobby our legislators to do something about it on a state and federal level because this is simply out of control. He added, “The root of the problem is a lack of accountability through all facets of the judicial system.” Read in Full >>
Guest Editorial: The Illusion of Public Safety vs. Civil Liberties
Like anyone, I want my son to live in a safe city, but not at the expense of his human rights and civil liberties. Currently, we are working on two cases: one dealing with a disabled man shot by the Baltimore City Police Department, and the second concerning a group of East Baltimore demonstrators attacked by the police. In the first situation, outraged bystanders were warned by officers on the scene to stop acting like, guess what, "animals". Sound familiar?

TGR: Crime Is Top Mayoral Issue in Baltimore? Is mayor in-touch with the will of the people?
For instance, hiring more cops would not be the first thing on my lips if I were running for mayor. Jobs? Oh, yes! More treatment slots? Definite potential top initiative! But, will Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake say that? I hardly think so. Why? She’s out of touch with what the crack epidemic has done to our people in Baltimore – I guess. Definite potential top initiative: Schools. The schools CEO, Dr. Andres Alonso, takes credit for accomplishments, but never for errors. Instead, he throws principals under the bus and blames everything on them and their inadequacies. Case in point: Dr. Barney Wilson. Maybe Wilson had an issue. I don’t know. I “do” know he made Poly nationally relevant. However, his reward was a quick toss under the bus as well. Read in Full >>
The Glover Report: WBAL TV 11 Reported 100th Murder of 2011 in Baltimore Tuesday is same number as 2010
If you believe crime is less – given that WBAL TV 11 reported last night on the 100th
murder Tuesday evening – right on target with this time last year, send Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake back to City Hall. If you believe arresting black youth for curfew violations is the best way to channel their energy, send her back to City Hall. If you think the endorsements of Cong. Elijah Cummings, Sen. Ben Cardin, Gov. Martin O’Malley, and Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown – along with video endorsements from Cheryl Glen and Curt “Tea Bagger” Anderson, and Keiffer “Done lost his compass” Mitchell of “the Great Mitchell Family” are worth their weight in gold, send her back.
