      This fool gives a fake name and tries to run and the resists arrest and you want to turn it around and somehow make it a woman’s fault. Go make me a sandwich before you keep making up these nonsensical comments.

      Can you tell us one more time? Some of us might not have gotten it the first time.

    So you release him and then look for him a week later. When did the arrest warrants hit?

    • Gary B on March 6, 2017 at 8:40 pm

      Right, seems to be a thing in St. Mary’s

      • Trevon Martinez on March 10, 2017 at 4:24 pm

        They love him, so they set him free. It’s a Democrat thang!

      Who is “you?”

  7. Chibbs on March 10, 2017 at 3:55 pm

    It would be very cost effective, to just put him down. End of problem.

  8. 1234 on March 10, 2017 at 4:05 pm

    The Sheriff’s Office does not release him, that’s the judges/court commissioners.

  9. Anonymous on March 10, 2017 at 4:12 pm

    Catch and release, catch and release, catch and release…What is Hogan really doing differently than O’Malley? Both parties are total BS no matter how you spin it to fit your one-sided narrative.

    • cheywolf on March 13, 2017 at 10:26 am

      O’Malley or Hogan did not release him, it is the same lame azz liberal judges that do that.

    Behold the revolving door that is the modern judicial system.

    The updated headline says it all. Criminals are more important than us hardworking law abiding citizens. Keep voting Demoncrap people.

    This is getting ridiculous, this motherf#@#$ has been arrested and released then goes on the run.

    OK so let me get this right….he was wanted…held up yet another location.. Fled from the police..they finally get him..take him into custody and he is then released!?!?…WTF is wrong with this picture here?…does he actually have to harm someone during a robbery to be held in jail where clearly he belongs? I guess SMC has a job to do…FIND THIS LOSER! GOOD LUCK!

    Good now the county can keep the five million bond he posted. Use the money to put in street lights, sidewalks, storm drains plus pave the road easements at school bus stops so parents can get out of the road while waiting on the school bus! The schools need to train students how to find their homes from the bus stop to get the parents out of the road. This will give them skills so they don’t end up lost and not able to find their way like Mr Gantt and the Court House.

  15. Shakes the Clown on March 12, 2017 at 3:28 am

    Ok St. Marys why in the hell did you let him out? Did you really think he was gonna actually show up to court? I’ll wait….

    • Anon on March 12, 2017 at 2:35 pm

      Ask the judge or the district court commissioner. It has nothing to do with the county.

      • Shakes the Clown on March 12, 2017 at 3:26 pm

        They work for the county, so it’s the county’s problem.

        • Anonymous on March 13, 2017 at 8:00 am

          No they don’t. They work for the state dummy.

        • Big Cookie on March 13, 2017 at 9:33 am

          They work for the state. The judges are elected and the court commissioners are appointed.

        • Big Dookie on March 15, 2017 at 3:22 pm

          they actually work for the state. Tool

    Ok Charles County, you’re turn. Let’s see if our courts care about the criminal or the law abiding citizens.
