  1. I guess drug dealing is the career of choice in somd now, eh? Probably because there isn’t much of a punishment for it when caught.

  2. What is going through people’s minds when they get these tats? It’s absolutely amazing how many people in SoMD that have facial, head, neck tats not to mention all of the trendy ” sleeve” tats. I concede its not just a SoMD thing but it definitely is more prevalent here than other parts of the country. It’s an instant signal that the person has poor decision making skills and more likely than not they have antisocial/criminal tendencies.
    To top it off many are quickly offended if you look at the “artwork” for more than a few seconds. Lol! Seriously, you get inked on a super conspicuous part of your body which screams look at me yet you don’t like when people happen to look? Lol! Facepalm!

  3. Driving at a high rate of rate of speed, well in an excess of the speed limit, and fleeing at high rates of speed should be punishable by death and only death. No jail. Regardless if the driver causes injuries or property damage to others.

    1. At the very least, “Attempted Murder”, like the guy stabbing someone, why not “Attempted Murder” for that one?
      “Oh, I just wanted to stab him once, without the intent to kill/murder”
      Bet they are all out in less than a few days.
