The headline “Black man’s death in police custody roils town” (Web, March 6) is misleading and biased. The article neither alludes to nor quotes anyone but family members of the deceased, Anton Black, when it comes to questioning the decision of the county prosecutor not to prosecute, or the findings of the medical examiner regarding cause of death. Yet the Associated Press reporter writes, “Black’s death has roiled a rural town on Maryland’s Eastern Shore and left his family yearning for answers.”

Please, if you insist on regurgitating AP articles at least read them first. Our law-enforcement community deserves to be treated fairly.
