What's disappointing is that he is allowed to play! No excuse for laying your hands on anotherRead More person. Much less knocking you girlfriend out cold.

All depends on what you believe to be true. I have heard that his wife could barely stand up, wasRead More beating on him, and spit in his face. If all that is true (and none of us knows the whole story), then, yeah, I might overreact too. Especially if I had been drinking also. Does not make me a serial abuser.
MR July 24, 2014 at 06:19 pm
This was not a "mistake" on his part. He made the CHOICE to hit her, rather than removeRead More himself from the situation. So let's stop re-defining the word "mistake".

As a former Colts' fan I get the anger that Cleveland fans may have. But even a cursory look at theRead More difference between the Modell family and the owning family of the Colts would reveal quite a difference. Art Modell left the name and all the history in Cleveland for the current team to use - in Indy, not so much. The Modell family has embraced the Ravens market and is highly thought of here as a result - in Indy, there are still issues with the family. I hope they throw the book at this guy for such a disgusting act.
Noreen Belzner Chauncey July 24, 2014 at 01:10 pm
I hope your lucky enough to pay the fine and smart enough to see what Art did not only forRead More Cleveland/Baltimore and the NFL. At least you got to keep the name "BROWNS". Your a disgrace to your team so don't ware the color's.

Kim Cooke July 24, 2014 at 08:18 am
I read more vitriolic comments about taxes and issues of race than I ever do over rape cases. TheRead More issue here is that you made up in your head a "liberal" judge let out the sex offender? Yeah, that conjecture should be our strongest reaction to this story.
LevelheadedOne July 24, 2014 at 08:40 am
*Kim Cooke- I think that Bill Howard's "liberal" reference was to the judges poor decisionRead More to be loose and easy on the sex offender...not his politics. But more importantly- these slime balls shouldn't be allowed back into society without castration. These are two evil, vile people who planned and plotted against a young woman. This makes me angry, they better not get away with this. Our jails are full, it's expensive to house these criminals for years- so just cut off their genitals and make it impossible for them to do it again. The punishment fits the crime.
Crime Solver July 24, 2014 at 02:57 pm
It is unfortunate what this young girl endured at the hands of these sick men that preyed upon herRead More and I hope she gets the long term therapy and resources she needs to effectively cope with the trauma.

Still today pedestrians cross the streets in downtown College Park against the pedestrian stopRead More signals. Question is when are the law enforcement agencies going to start giving J-walking tickets to those that cross the streets not in cross walks or going against the signals?

Bryan- critical thinking should not be defined as displaying an ability to perform as expected. ItRead More should be analytical and improvisational. That, however, leads to students challenging their instructors and is time consuming. It also demands instructors with hubris. Thinking is also critical in areas other than math. I cede the point that I am not currently involved in the process yet have extensive experience dealing with the product of the system. I see no current evidence that there is any ability to problem solve in the education system. There is an ability to follow procedure as taught, not critique or improvise. Our foreign educated employees have much better skills in those areas.

Mike, just think about it What PRIVATE business do we have in Maryland? Under Armour, a fineRead More company. Do they make all their clothing in the US? McCormick - they package and combine spices and flavorings, often imported, and are thinking of moving elsewhere. Johns Hopkins, which researches many things for the government. A handful of bio/chemical companies - that often are bought out by companies domiciled elsewhere when they reach a certain size. Several companies that shuffle money around. Headquarters of several large defense contractors - mostly in Montgomery County, close to the federal money teat. Other than that, what? No large companies that MAKE things. Baltimore ranks as the country's largest branch office town. The state is a nice place to live, but not very exciting - except for the chance of dying violently. I'm a native, by the way.

Is it me or should there be more to this story??? I remember when you could pick up a news paper andRead More actually read news. I guess now if it's over 150 characters it's to much information.

I'm not defending these people by no means but it is so hard dealing with one autistic person andRead More for them to deal with two? In NJ once a person reaches 21 they are aged out of the "system". What happens when autistic children become adults? No programs for parent of autistic adults, no help! Nobody unless you have experienced it yourself understands............ People who are parents of autistic adults needs tons of help, they become desperate because they don't have any options.

Pam J July 23, 2014 at 02:37 pm
I think people are jumping to conclusions here. He apparently parked in a parking garage. Granted,Read More five hours is too long and he should just be considered a bad son, but he really didn't do anything illegal. Sure she was incoherent when the police first questioned her. She's 98 years old and was asleep when they started questioning her. How many of us make a lot of sense when we first wake up? My 83-year-old is just now complaining about being cold and I have the airconditioning turned up to 78. Older people can deal with heat a little better, apparently. I bet the mother was doing just fine until the "good" citizen decided she wasn't. But it's good that they called her son.
Bill Howard July 23, 2014 at 10:19 pm
Maybe he was trying to let her die so he could collect insurance for his gambling debts. When theseRead More folks are hooked, they will hurt anyone.

Support local farms! Buy at farmers markets or visit their farm markets if you can.
Kolo Jezdec July 23, 2014 at 12:55 pm
What Roger said. And there are plenty of places where you can "pick your own," so youRead More know exactly where the produce came from. No reason to buy produce in a super market during the summer.
Bob Higginbotham July 23, 2014 at 07:32 pm
If I recall correctly "organic" means they were fertilized with "natural"Read More compounds. Beside being cheaper, I think I prefer my consumables to be fertilized with nitrates, etc. that are made by artificial means. They are guaranteed to be pure without any chance of contaminants.

And once again, that's the best surveillance footage they can provide?? In this day and age ofRead More high-def and the highest resolution cameras in history, and this is the best they can do. Sad. My suggestion?....hidden eye-level, high-definition cameras throughout the store, at the register and exit, and third party monitoring. These creeps would have been met by law enforcement in the parking lot or shortly after.
