It was a night like no other. I vaguely remember it being rainy, dark and cold in East Baltimore City (Md.), as I stood outside of my police car waiting for the ambulance to arrive. I was standing over my third homicide victim for the night. He was a 15-year-old black male, honor student, athlete and good Christian boy.
