Kudos to the officers involved in this shooting. Any imbecile who decides to discharge a firearm anywhere other than at an approved, legal, and safe shooting facility deserves whatever happens to him/her. I'm awaiting the suspect's full name and age so that I can check him out on the MD Judiciary Case Search database. Chances are good that this is not his first run in with the police.

GOD help us if barak hussein obama is elected again. Are we still allowed to say GOD in America. I was always say GOd bless America. Its time for a change!

Yes you can say God but using Barrys middle name means you are a racist. Using 'Chicago' is now racist as is using 'food stamps' when talking about Obama. Oh don;t forget if you call Obama 'angry' you are a racist too according to some loon on MSNBC.

I give them credit, 9 MM against aaginst assault rifle. I would have to go with Harry, the guy shouldn't have been on the street to begin with.

Proud of the fine job these officers performed on this ahole that decided to open fire in public. And for anyone that wishes to blame the offiers for this, may I suggest that you post this Tool's bail, be willing to put this upstanding citizen up in your home and nurse him back to health so that he gains his strength back and is ready to stand trial.

What's the point in i.d'ing the Officers Names when a 'righteous shooting' occurs? Other than rewarding them with a meritorious citation, I'm not getting it.
Zoobie September 03, 2012 at 11:14 PM
That 'Credit' looks like SPAM to me, Buzz !
Buzz Beeler September 04, 2012 at 01:23 PM
Zoobie, what do you want to bet, this suspect had a criminal record and based on the sentences he received, he should have been in prison, or at the very least Patuxent.
Zoobie September 05, 2012 at 02:37 AM
Can't argue with that, Buzz. ."Hospitalized at the University of Maryland"? What are they doing, studying him??!!
kelly hearn September 05, 2012 at 02:59 AM

kelly hearn September 05, 2012 at 03:00 AM

Zoobie September 05, 2012 at 06:15 AM
You seem to borrowing a phraise from a war movie "Shoot them all and let God sort them out". "John Wayne" While that might work in the movies, reality check, we are a nation of Laws. That's what separates us from the barbarians and communists. Let's let the law run it's course, Justice will prevail.
Zoobie September 05, 2012 at 06:26 AM
14 yrs. on Death Row is Hell on Earth. Kelly, you might get some knowledge about the prison system by contacting a Priest or Minister who has a prison ministry, and ask same to take you on a tour of the prison where he/she ministers. I'm sure you would be enlightened and come away with a different perspective. Those folks on Death Row pray for that final 'Needle' that ends their miserable existence. Be Abundantly Blessed !
kelly hearn September 05, 2012 at 11:11 AM
oh i am blessed. hell for eternity is worse u sound like a libby

Zoobie, meet a young man at the nursing home last night and we talked for a long time. I plan on doing a blog on his story. He agreed. He was robbed of $4 and shot in the back. It severed his spinal chord and left hem paralyzed. What makes this story really sad is the guys that did it got off even though the victim knew the shooters face from living in the neighborhood. What bother's him is that he worked all his life and never asked for any help and for a lousy $4 bucks he has to ask all the time. He's serving a life sentence while the perp's are still sucking in free air. It just goes to show one how screwed up life really is.
Zoobie September 05, 2012 at 08:16 PM
I'd be interested in that Blog, Buzz. Keep us informed. Praying for the Victims.
Zoobie September 05, 2012 at 08:25 PM
Nobody with a decent thought process has ever characterized me as a Liberal. I'm concervative to the core! Have a good day.
