Baltimore Sun appeals for help in finding "thug"

Dan Rodricks of the Baltimore Sun wrote a column today in which he appeals to the citizens of Baltimore to assist the police in apprehending the person who assaulted reporter Carl Schoettler in an apparent robbery attempt last Saturday evening.

In particular, Rodricks implores the "new readers of this column," those with criminal records who over the past several months have contacted the paper asking for assistance to kick their drug habits or to find jobs.

"Whatever your crimes, you tell me they are in the past. You say you want to move on to a better place," Rodricks writes, "so help me out here, and help your city."

Schoettler is in serious but stable condition at Maryland Shock Trauma Center.

Let's hope the citizens of Baltimore heed Rodricks call to find and punish to the fullest extent of the law the person or persons involved in this vicious and needless attack.
