      “While” males? Check your facts genius. These crimes know no race.

      Delandre Rosier us wanted by the CCSO for raping a 7 year old. He’s not “while.” Race baiter.

      Why is it so many black males are in prison? Why is it so many black males don’t have jobs and leach off us? Why is it you’re such a stupid pos? Just stfu

      • Tired of Racist on March 8, 2016 at 5:30 pm

        You sound just as ignorant. It’s plenty of people of all races without a job. You’re just as stupid to make that comment. What do you have to leach off of? Probably not a damn thing..smh..

      Actually if you bothered to do a little research you would see that every race commits this sick act at the same percentage as they occupy this country. I guess you ignored the 2 African Americans that were charged last week. Anyone who commits this atrocity deserves to suffer.

    • Truth Hurts on March 5, 2016 at 9:10 am

      Apparently, you did not read the article on here a couple of weeks ago about a black man name Gregory Dionell Franklin. You seriously need to go flush yourself because there ain’t nothing but pure stank coming out of your flappy lips. Oh, and by the way, stop pretending to be black you racist POS.

      Black 19 year old in Chesapeake Beach about 2 weeks ago. This isn’t a robbery or public disturbance, you can’t tie this to a single race

        Screw you your a p.o.s

    • Anonymous on March 7, 2016 at 4:33 pm

      If that is the case then he has nothing to worry about and the girls will be charged with making a false report, however, if he did do what he is accused of doing he deserves to rot in the festering boil he created for himself.

    • MamaDee on March 10, 2016 at 5:05 pm

      I’m hanving a hard time believing that Doug Would do this, I know this family well please don’t judge until the facts come out.

        thankyou mamadee. Finally getting some good comments and not ignorant ones

    • Anonymous on March 12, 2016 at 4:24 pm

      What legal guy said is true

  12. Sea of Joy on March 5, 2016 at 10:16 am

    I went to school with Doug. He didn’t seem too smart – maybe not “challenged”, but far from smart. If this is true…what a POS.

    • Anonymous on March 7, 2016 at 12:14 pm

      And if it’s not true? What will you have to say then?

      • Sea of Joy on March 7, 2016 at 3:05 pm

        Then I would assume that the mother of the children that he has been having a long custody battle with has something to do with this call into CPS. I’m FB friends with Doug and I have not “unfriended” him…yet (I do believe in innocent until proven guilty), but if he is found guilty by the court, I will have no choice, but to believe what he has been charged with really happened.

      • Sea of Joy on March 7, 2016 at 3:07 pm

        …and further more…I stick by the “not too smart” (just stating a fact), but he was a fairly nice guy and fun to be around back in our high school days.

  13. Dylan Hughes on March 5, 2016 at 1:46 pm

    Screw you all!!!!! This is my father This is all false claims I don’t Beleive any of this.

        Shows how stupid people are. Messing with a kid because of the tiniest things. He spelled one word wrong and people start talking.

    • Anonymous on March 7, 2016 at 6:16 am

      You must be so proud. LOL.

    • Rocky on March 7, 2016 at 11:26 am

      Did he teach you to spell?

    • Anonymous on March 7, 2016 at 9:29 pm

      People can be mean and ignorant. Your father is innocent until proven guilty. All of these people love to be holier than thou and think they are so perfect. I hope your father did not perform these acts and will pray for you both. This must be a very difficult time for you. Keep your chin up and do the best you can to move on.

    • Anonymous on March 7, 2016 at 9:42 pm

      It must make you retards feel real good to talk to a kid that way.

  15. Pearl on March 7, 2016 at 7:10 pm

    People what happened to Innocent until found Guilty?

  16. Anonymous on March 9, 2016 at 3:01 pm

    You all are sick. Especially the ones replying to Dylan’s post. You realize he is a child and that is his father. No one knows what happened and I’ve known Doug since high school and I do not think this is true. Either way everyone needs to be respectful to this family. They are going through hard times and do not need all of the negativity especially the children. Keep your head up Dylan and do not feed into these comments.

    • Keepin It Real on March 10, 2016 at 10:35 am

      If Dylan’s sanity teeters on some negative comments on a news website, he’s far beyond help.

  17. Anonymous on March 10, 2016 at 11:51 am

    Screw all of you pos’s saying ignorant things.If you do not know what happened then mind your own business and get a life.because this isnt true what happened. I dont believe one bit of it. Doug did nothing wrong and dylan keep your head up these people dont know a da*n thing.
