    rather not say
  1. I think that was a lose-lose situation for any Police agency. If they had gone right in, and if one (or more) of the victims were hurt then the Police would have been blamed for that incident.
  2. "Time to strap on a gun, pin on a Badge, and become... A LAWMAN!!!" (Where do you think I got my name from)?
  3. Some bunch of shrinks got together and did a study in which they found that the speed of the punishment was a larger factor than the actual punishment when it comes to deterring repeat offenders. (I don't remember any more info on the study or I would link to it). Go into any Baltimore City Courtroom and watch how easily a case can be postponed. (In one case a car theft suspect got SEVEN postponements and finally the victim gave up coming to court (at that point the defense demanded the case be thrown out due to lack of a victim)). This is one incident where I can not blame Ms Mosby though. The City's Judges have to stop giving out repeated postponements as if they were 'tic-tac" candies! (I also can not fathom why Circuit Court cases take 6 months or more to come to trial).
  4. Do you remember the election between Kurt Schmoke and C. DuBurns? The Sun worshipped Kurt Schmoke as their own savior. (After all, Mr DuBurns only had 'street smarts,' but Mr Schmoke had gone to (gasp) college)! Things were very good for Mr DuBurns until out of nowhere, the Sun started poll after poll showing how poorly he was doing. Suddenly, funding for Mr DuBurns dried up and Mr Schmoke was elected, allowing the City to become overwhelmed in violence. My opinion only is that if the Sun had stayed out of it, Mr DuBurns would have won that election.
  5. I honestly believe that the Sun goes to the pollsters, tells them the results they want to publish and GOSH, those are the results! I have a problem cause it is anything but honest and the best and brightest candidates are the losers
  6. Scarier still is that I was an honest Cop.
  7. Sun/UB Poll: Baker, Jealous emerge from crowded Democratic field for governor * Does anyone believe any poll the Sun takes? Better question: Do you know anyone who has taken part in a Sun poll? *http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/politics/bs-md-dem-primary-poll-20180608-story.html
  8. I get it, you turn on the turbines to blow the storm out to sea before it can rain on OC! (It is thinking like that which ENRICHED the climate change gurus).
  9. It is a chance to trash the BPD, of course they reported on it
  10. My bad, Officers (especially City Cops) try very hard to display their professionalism. It is bad enough that the BPD creates these "new and improved, amazingly wonderful" specialized teams at the expense of Patrol, but it is really tragic when those units SCREW UP and make all Cops look bad.
  11. Guido.. He tarnished the Badge! There are many Officers out there who try their best to do their jobs with integrity and honor, and this jack-wad made us all look bad! He deserves every minute of the sentence!
  12. I noticed in one part of the article that it says: "But what’s most troubling of all is that Ocean City and, indeed, much of Representative Harris’ district, lie in the path of rising sea levels, a major side effect of climate change." Didn't anyone at the Sun get the memo that climate change is not real? (Unless you count the last two volcanoes which put more debris in the air than humans have in the last 1,000 years).
  13. Regarding the Sun's Article: Pride cometh before the flooding in Ocean City* Thank you Mr Harris for standing up to the environmentalists and doing what is right for your voters!! No one needs a bunch of windmills (paid for with tax money which will never come back to the taxpayers). No one needs a 'renewable energy source' that will never actually pay for itself. *http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/opinion/editorial/bs-ed-0611-wind-oc-harris-20180608-story.html
  14. A group (gang) of young thugs running down people, playing 'chicken' with cars, giving the finger to Cops (cause they know Cops in the City are strictly forbidden from enforcing the law)! Sounds like a decaying City to me....
  15. I know, but this page does connect with reality and (from looking at it) that is the last thing the Sun's writers and reporters want contact with. Think about it, if the Sun employees read these posts, they might think that citizens don't want crime, that citizens don't like corrupt politicians, that citizens don't want high taxes... That goes against everything they're taught as Sun writers/reporters.
