Where is the information about this checkpoint published? Under Sietz, the police are required toRead More publish not only that they are going to conduct a checkpoint but also where it is and what times it will be operating.

It shouldn't be illegal. If someone flashes their lights at me, I slow down even though IRead More don’t speed anyway. Isn't that the end result we are looking for? The police use illegal tactics all the time. Cops have told me that if they want to stop someone they just say they looked suspicious or weaved in their lane. How can you expect people to respect someone who acts no better than they do?

I live more to the west, Carroll County. Love to ride there, Frederick, Washington, southern PA.Read More D.C. is horrible! Happy I got to ride in Rolling Thunder though :) When I take a putt or a group does the same, we avoid the major highways like the plague..yes..even in Carroll. Thank you for your service to our country! I mean that sincerely.

This is a terrible tragedy but I don't consider Bethesda as a Baltimore suburb but a WashingtonRead More suburb. Why should this story get a mention on this site ?
ladypoet April 14, 2014 at 01:14 pm
Catch him and do the same as he did to his family. This was such a heinous crime. Who could killRead More your own mother, children and the mother of your children? A no good demon!

Find him and fry him. He should die regardless of his age. Italy probably won't help because of theRead More Amanda Knox case. I say govt should put a hit on him.

Will someone please help Robert find his medications?
Justin case April 11, 2014 at 11:15 am
He probably retired from the state department under an alias. They didn't even notice he was missingRead More for an entire week so I'm sure they wouldn't notice if he came back to work as Juan Rodriguez or some other alias. Bunch of idiots. The FBI must finally be sick of this guy embarrassing them for 38 years

Your government agencies at work....HA! But cops can get away with beating an unarmed or mentallyRead More challenged or mentally ill person to DEATH. What a world.

My Opinion April 11, 2014 at 09:31 am
"Surveillance video in the area took footage of the possible suspects using the victim’sRead More credit cards." Not really the main part of the story, but can the place that the possible suspect used the cards at, get in trouble for not checking ID with the credit card?

Lets all just be happy this did not turn out worse, and lets get to the facts before jumping toRead More conclusions, yes leaving the bus unattended we know is wrong, but did a child put the bus in gear? etc... Man seams to have done his job very well for years and years.

Wow this man has some serious guts to pull this one off, hope they get him soon, offer a largeRead More reward and his own family will turn him in!!
erikb.prestbury April 9, 2014 at 12:10 pm
He is not a bank robber. He is probably desperate to pay back the drug money he owes to his dealer.Read More The dealer(s) are likely the cause of the eye patch, from an earlier confrontation, and have threatened to kill him if he doesn't get their money asap. This looks like a move of pure desperation, not a well thought out and cased plan.

There's a group of wonderful volunteers in Philly that run a emergency relief team for animalsRead More involved in house fires. They do fantastic work, and ask the public for help with transport and donations to help offset the medical costs. I honestly believe this is something that should be offered in all counties in every state. That is something Red Paw would LOVE to see! http://redpawemergencyreliefteam.com/

And for those who can't afford to care for their pets there are programs and organization out thereRead More that try to do what they can and help supplement food and find discounted care. Luna's House has a food pantry and NoKillHarford is just starting to get going but are looking to offer subsidies. (Both are located in Harford County) And I know most low income families can't get credit cards or don't want to use them, Care Credit is not a regular credit card. It's for use for medical care INCLUDING our pets. You have to make sure your vet accepts the card and the payment plans they accept. Some only accept the 6 month plan. I have been fortunate to not need any of those services but I'm glad to know they are indeed out there. People just don't know and it's a shame

Robert Curry April 6, 2014 at 04:10 pm
All too frequently, police deliberately place themselves in front of occupied motor vehicles,Read More deliberately making themselves targets, so as to "Justify" using deadly force in otherwise minor incidents! I tend to believe that should I, a homeowner, find someone stealing from my garage and deliberately place myself in their escape path, to attempt justification of MY use of deadly force when they come towards ME as they try to escape, the police/court would probably say I should have "Stepped Aside" amd permitted the escape! WHY the double standard? Those that escape, usually go on to continue their crime spree against other victims! Citizens should be entitled to defend themselves and their property the same as police!
Mr. Mxyzptlk April 8, 2014 at 08:59 am
Robert, you have no idea what occurred yet you spent 11 lines of text to criticize the police, yetRead More not even a single word criticizing the criminal behavior in this case. Not a single word of well wishes to the inured police officer. Not a single word of thanks for the officers doing a dangerous job with no support from those in the community such as you. "Otherwise minor"? The police had no idea if the person fleeing had just injured or killed someone in that home. Just say, "Thank You."
Marcus Aurelius April 9, 2014 at 07:16 am
Thanks to all of you that protect us all everyday 24/7, and we are letting the politicians get a 16%Read More raise come on people force them to vote for it first and to "pay it forward" to those that protect us, not rule over us.

Maybe it's just a thought but f they overlooked Mr. Tatum's body during a previous search is itRead More possible they didn't look in one place for Relisha?
