  1. PG County is only going to get worse. I see that DC is trying a new tactic to curb “gun violence”. Now THAT’S funny!!! They’re so ignorant (how ignorant?) that they think their “Band Aid on a broken leg” is going to do anything to reduce it…
    I went to HS in Forestville in the late 60s and early 70s and hung out at LaReine HS often to meet some ladies. Suitland HS (right next door) was a bad place to hang out back then! No stabbings or guns, but a lot of fights. Nice job parents!!!

      1. If he grew up there and went to school there, his opinion has a little more weight than most. No need to try and insult anyone here.

  2. 18 years old, at the beginning of the school year. What does that tell you?
    I also like how they recovered the gun from him waistband…
