Sherrilyn Ifill was returning to Baltimore from New York on Amtrak train 80 Friday when she says a junior conductor approached and asked her to give up her seat. To say that the internationally known civil rights attorney and activist bristled would be an understatement.

City officials on Saturday condemned a viral video that captured a Baltimore Police sergeant being kicked by onlookers as he struggled to restrain a male on the ground Friday night.

His life ended quietly, in the cold, huddled in the entrance of a Mount Vernon restaurant, where Dwight Claxton’s body was found by police Friday morning. By Saturday, funeral arrangements were being pieced together via a lengthy thread on the community’s Facebook page where friends and acquaintances shared stories of Claxton.

Ravens outside linebacker Matthew Judon and his wife, BreighAnn, had to wait a little longer than expected, but the couple on Friday welcomed a second child to their growing family.

In Baltimore, the police department’s $48 million overtime budget is a frequent cause of hand-wringing, news stories and contentious City Council hearings. But the Maryland prison system’s use of overtime ― the result of a severe staffing shortage ― easily eclipses Baltimore's.
