  1. Oh oh! Now the Maryland left is going to try to eliminate police chases again. How racist it is for the police to pursue criminals! Don’t they know that they’re not supposed to chase them because they’re (usually) democrats?
    So, the #1 male pulls a Ted Kennedy on his passenger then tries to run away from the cops? I’m sure that hasn’t happened before…

    1. Unlike Turbulent Teddy, this clown didn’t quite make it to the water (except on foot).
      One would guess that his baby daddy didn’t quite teach him to be a gentleman, just how to be a thug.

  2. Note to “none”: Were you named after the amount of brains that you have? YOU read the article or have someone read it to you! What an immense amount of creativity you had in choosing your screen name too…
    Note to “nobody wanna hear all that:” Don’t you mean “dat”? Obviously you’re another left wing, mindless liberal since you also want the comments of others silenced.
    The people like the ones that you clowns are defending are the very ones that are doing STUPID stunts like this one that causes lives to end! Maybe you brainless wonders should stay off of social media and spend more time raising your kids properly and teaching them NOT TO RUN FROM THE COPS!!!
    And what’s with these ignorant screen names on here? Are you all that dense that you can’t come up with an original name for yourself? I’ve seen a bunch of “none”, “anonymous” repeated initials and a few others. No wonder school dropouts in smibville are increasing so fast.

    1. Poor Archie…he just hates getting called out for his stupid posts.

      “None” hit the nail on the head. Nothing in your original post had anything to do with the article.

      BTW…what’s the matter…can’t figure out how to reply to a previous post? Dumb as dirt, you are.

  3. someone pushed “wams ” button… Love it ! What a convoluted bunch of hog wash tripe the “wam” comes up with .. funny sheat there ” wam “

    1. We all know that you’re not used to hearing the truth so go back to your basement. CNN should be on and they need all 10 of their viewers…

      1. “CNN should be on and they need all 10 of their viewers…”
        Come on now, everybody knows CNN has over a dozen rabid fans.
        Ha! Ha! Ha!
        Heck, three of them have already commented here.
        Well, one would guess, the three includes the one that said that they “read the article”.

        1. An unbelievable amount of idiocy on here isn’t there, Baud? And most on here cannot even see it. No wonder their idol, Joe, was allowed to steal the election.
