I heard it all associating with the terrorist group was like a video game . This young man should beRead More sentenced for the same amount of time as the rest . Know he can get out of prison with a bad taste in his mouth and blow up some Americans . After 911 there should be no deals made with terrorists .

The Halloween shooting back in 2009, a seemingly slam dunk case, remains unsolved. Also, severalRead More botched SWAT raids leaving 3 family dogs dead were on his watch. Good riddance, loser.

After he lied about their having DUI quotas, I've had no trust in McMahon. Even after their quotasRead More were outed in a public court, he was denying it.

Attempted Kidnapping will bring the F.B.I. every time.

And FYI... forcing the manager into an office then making him tote the cash out to the robbers van?Read More = Kidnapping

That's strange... No comments about the inner city trash people living in public housing on welfareRead More moving to howard county and committing crimes? Oh wait.... He white not black! If he was a black male this comment section would have been full with comments by now. Half of them about Obama.... Go figure....

it is good thing we can all just get stoned now, or take prescription drugs and drive, ever noticeRead More none of these are ever outside FOP lodges ????
Paul Hahn April 17, 2014 at 07:08 am
What does "alcohol related" mean? If I've been drinking over the limit and I'm legallyRead More stopped at a red light and a sober driver smashes into my car, is that "alcohol related"?
Paul Hahn April 17, 2014 at 07:13 am
Duh, I just did a search and found my answer. If either driver has had anything to drink at all, itRead More is "alcohol-related." Also, if a sober driver hits a drunk pedestrian walking on the sidewalk, it is "alcohol-related." So "alcohol-related" doesn't necessarily mean an accident that was caused by drinking. It is basically a useless statistic.
Pam Hamburg April 16, 2014 at 11:23 am
LOL, and I would never skydive *shudders*.
Marcus Aurelius April 17, 2014 at 07:57 am
But we can get stoned now, makes perfect sense !! You could always just drive like responsibleRead More people and keep your speed safe, there are thousands of people missing limbs or worse wishing they never were involved in a crash by either there own fault or the result of some balloon knot, Thanks for keeping us safe officers

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.

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
Pam Hamburg April 11, 2014 at 04:40 pm

What a senseless loss of life. I hope they find this murderer soon! My heart goes out to his familyRead More and I will share this so that others can look out for the vehicle in question.
Steven Spiegel March 28, 2014 at 12:12 pm
People are ruthless on the road these days. I don't understand what could go wrong going down theRead More road so bad that it would make someone want to kill someone. I have been in accidents were people have rear ended me and it didn't get me mad enough to want to kill them. I hope that they find this guy and prosecute him to the fullest . I just lost my father to cancer on New years eve and he was 84 and it hurt so bad . I could not imagine having my son murdered it would kill me !!! I hope that the family will heal soon but it takes time and I am sure the healing process would be greatly accelerated if they found those who were responsible .

It seems every time you listen to the news or read something there is breach of security. EitherRead More the security is very poor in stores, colleges etc. or the reporting is getting better. It is extremely scary between the government listening to phone calls & hackers getting information off credit cards we are not safe.

Walt March 20, 2014 at 06:56 am
Typical load of bureaucratic BS from the biggest butt kissers of all, military brass and theirRead More lapdogs. A six year old could give a more reasoned analysis. If the men and women of our military cannot be trusted with guns on our own bases we should just throw in the towel. If the soldiers might be armed they don't make such an inviting target.

Presented w/o comment:**** Sudden unexpected death under acute influence of cannabis**** from:Read More Forensic Science International****http://www.fsijournal.org/article/S0379-0738(14)00054-1/abstract**** We describe the cases of two young, putative healthy men who died unexpectedly under the acute influence of cannabinoids. To our knowledge, these are the first cases of suspected fatal cannabis intoxications where full postmortem investigations, including autopsy, toxicological, histological, immunohistochemical and genetical examinations, were carried out. The results of these examinations are presented. After exclusion of other causes of death we assume that the young men experienced fatal cardiovascular complications evoked by smoking cannabis.
