THE MEASURE, HB 6001, SEEKS TO DELETE A PROVISION THAT RESTRICTS PERMIT HOLDERS FROM CARRYING A FIREARM ON CAMPUS GROUNDS.

WHEN COPS ARRIVED, THE 48-YEAR-OLD MAN WAS OUTSIDE, WAVING THE KNIFE, CLEARLY A POTENTIAL THREAT. REPEATEDLY, HE REFUSED POLICE ORDERS TO DROP HIS WEAPON. THE ENCOUNTER COULD HAVE BEEN HIS DEATH SENTENCE IN MANY CITIES IN AMERICA — OR, A FEW YEARS EARLIER, IN CAMDEN ITSELF. INSTEAD, POLICE OFFICERS RECOGNIZED THE MAN WAS IN THE THROES OF A MENTAL HEALTH CRISIS AND BACKED OFF.ON THANKSGIVING DAY, DANIEL SPEARS OPENED THE DOOR TO HIS BADIN HOME AND IMMEDIATELY FELT SICK TO HIS STOMACH.

SIX OF NIGH’S GUNS ARE NOW ON THE STREET AFTER A THIEF STOLE THEM FROM HIS U-HAUL TRAILER.

MD – TRAINING – Harford’s sheriff’s office uses a VR simulator for use-of-force training. Here’s what happened when a reporter took the course.

At 6-foot-2, 140 pounds, I may be too scrawny to be a police officer. It is a good thing, too, because I made a mess of the Harford County Sheriff’s Office’s virtual training last month and — if I did not already — seriously doubt my qualification to enforce laws, digital or real. This is an account of the experience, in which I was likely killed more than once. Up a flight of stairs and a short walk down a hallway in the sheriff’s office’s southern precinct in Edgewood is the agency’s virtual training room. Before we are allowed in, a uniformed sheriff’s deputy asks if I have any weapons on me. I tell him no, but that I have a sandwich in my backpack. He asks me to leave both outside. Everyone has to disarm before entering the room; there are no exceptions. The reason, I am later told, is to prevent accidental discharges into a commander’s office, which is adjacent to the last available space in the building that the sheriff’s office was able to squeeze its training apparatus into. Sheriff Jeffrey Gahler surrenders his gun and a pocketknife, accompanying me into the room. The training system — made by VirTra, an Arizona company — looks like a walled-off stage connected to a computer. It dominates the room. Five walls encircle about 300 degrees of the raised platform and can be used to project onto one screen at a time or construct a panoramic view of a dirt lot, movie theater or other places officers may find themselves responding to a call. When the system engages, its screens light up and the room’s lights dim — like the beginning of an IMAX matinee. From there, a short message displays on the screens, and a blue-painted Glock 22 is passed to the trainee, or, in this case, me.  [full article]
