  1. He seems a little old to get into this “under 30” violence. I wonder if there were any prior charges that might have helped the correction system identify and detain a problem?
    We all waste a lot of tax money on what seems to be a catch, release, repeat service that does nothing to actually keep us safe.

  2. Sierra Hotel LEO’s. With these charges what did the Court Commissioner do? Is the accused out of jail? This is a perfect example of someone who should be held on “No Bail”. With the prior felony conviction, the Prosecutor shouldn’t plea-bargain. The Judge should ensure a fair trial. When/if the accused is convicted, the sentence should reflect the Judges commitment to protect the law-abiding citizens.

  3. I could be wrong but I think these guys think they probably won’t be caught if they shoot someone.

    This is almost never true. They are almost always caught in Southern Maryland.
