Dont you have anything better to do than excersize your twitter fingers? Seriously…your prob a fat pos that has two things on your mind. Taking your finger out of your @s$ and bashing people on this site and food hence your fat as$ calling yourself big cookie. Smmfh. Pos. Get a life. Bama.

      • Willie on March 21, 2017 at 12:17 am

        Translation: I didn’t pay attention in school.

      • Big Cookie on March 21, 2017 at 9:23 am

        If you’re going to bash me, at least get it right. You wrote,

        “you think your funny, but your not”. It should be “you think you’re funny but

        you’re not.” See the difference?

        What is the “Bama” reference at the end of your diatribe?

      • Sweety B on March 21, 2017 at 12:37 pm

        Anonomous,

        Why do you care what he/she comments on? That’s the whole purpose of this website, to be able to comment on the news stories. Did he strike a nerve on this one. Is one of the thugs in this story a relative of yours? Heh heh!

  2. Lamont Jenkins on March 18, 2017 at 11:35 am

    Day yum! Laplata is a training ground for thugs! I bets he rolled with the Kent Avenue Crew, they are straight up killas!

      La… La Plata? There’s a few rough areas, sure, but that town is a PARADISE in SoMD compared to a lot of the rest of it.

  3. Diggerodell72 on March 18, 2017 at 12:31 pm

    I don’t understand why these idiots have to look bad ass in their mug shots. It must be a badge of courage for them. Iam speaking about that Bishop dude. He looks like a real piece of crap. Well of course they both look like scum.

    • Eyedea on March 20, 2017 at 3:29 pm

      Post your Facebook, bro, I’m curious which deformities of yours I can make fun of.

      • Bigdoofie on March 21, 2017 at 3:14 pm

        Hahahahaha preach!

  4. Wanda on March 18, 2017 at 3:27 pm

    No nasty comments here? Whats wrong people? These guys aren’t overweight and female?
    Or are you scared?

    sigh, well maybe its early.

    • Jack Links on March 20, 2017 at 9:33 am

      You probably have the weight issue covered. As for female, we are waiting for your test results to come back. You still dating Sasquatch? Does he know your gender status? You better not make him mad!

      Reading isn’t your thing, eh?

    • Bob Lob Law on March 20, 2017 at 10:27 am

      Are you overweight and female?

      • Eyedea on March 20, 2017 at 3:32 pm

        With a name like Wanda….

        • Pooky on March 21, 2017 at 12:15 am

          Only when compared to the mean streets of Waldorf! Laplata is JV Waldorf, but they are on their way to New Jack City status, real quick!

        • Po Po Joe on March 21, 2017 at 12:16 am

          Maybe a Wicked Wanda? Old school……

        • Bob Lob Law on March 21, 2017 at 7:52 am

          If the mumu fits….

      • Bigdoofie on March 21, 2017 at 12:12 pm

        Bob law you are so lame dude. Really. Do you have anything better to do other than hide behind your computer and comment on others transgressions? Bama.

        • Willie on March 21, 2017 at 11:03 pm

          Hypocrite much?

          • Bob Lob Law on March 22, 2017 at 10:53 am

            This guy gets it.

    • Bigdoofie on March 21, 2017 at 12:14 pm

      Amen. Guess im not the only one who thinks these haters have nothing to do with there time.. lol do you think these people would make these comments face to face with any one of these “suspects”. Lmfao. Twitter fingers.

      • Willie on March 21, 2017 at 11:04 pm

        Dude, are you serious? You are bashing people and then you do the same thing? You aren’t smart, are you?

      • Big Cookie on March 22, 2017 at 6:10 pm

        Bigdoofie,

        You wrote “nothing to do with there time”. You should have written “nothing to do with their time”. See the difference?

  5. harleyflh on March 18, 2017 at 6:44 pm

    Wow go figure not to worry another plea will be made and the will be back on the street how about dealing with these pieces of SH-T and solving the problem for once

  6. Better Choices on March 19, 2017 at 1:15 pm

    Guns and drugs can only lead to jail and death. Great future.

    • Eyedea on March 20, 2017 at 3:33 pm

      Or ranges and medicine cabinets. Think these things through before you post ’em, man, jeez.

  7. Anonymous on March 19, 2017 at 5:37 pm

    What didnt they have.lol

    • Eyedea on March 20, 2017 at 3:35 pm

      [From a commissioner’s perspective:] “Criminal intent. I’m sure these two gentlemen were just out for a lovely stroll to their neighborhood gun range and simply didn’t realize the man who robbed them the night before (hence the guns) dropped those crack baggies in the car. Seems clear-cut to me: this young man is free to go!”

    Where’s big dookie? Oh they’re not white so that POs stays low key.. smh

    • Eyedea on March 20, 2017 at 3:31 pm

      ….Why you bringin’ up the white/not-white card?

      Race doesn’t matter. This behavior crosses all socioeconomic and racial lines. People like you are just as much of a problem as the people YOU find problematic, and it’s a shame you don’t see that.

    • Bigdoofie on March 21, 2017 at 3:16 pm

      Hahahahaha preach!

  10. Anonymous B on March 20, 2017 at 8:16 am

    Good catch, now they need to go on taxpayer funded vacation for a long time.

    • Eyedea on March 20, 2017 at 3:37 pm

      Nah, they out on PR already and coming to a home invasion near you…

      • Anonymous B on March 21, 2017 at 7:56 am

        I hope you are wrong because I would have to end their career real fast and save the taxpayers loads of money. I am what you call a legal gun owner. My only dilemma would be do I use the 9mm or do I use the Magnum and put a softball sized hole in their chest. I never want to have to take a persons life but when it comes to the safety and security of my family I would end these two and anyone else that is a POS thief and tries to break in.

        • Bob Lob Law on March 23, 2017 at 12:16 pm

          You wouldn’t do anything and we all know it.

  11. Anonymous on March 20, 2017 at 10:08 am

    Big Dookie, here we are again with a couple of brothers with guns and drugs. Any comment?

    • Eyedea on March 20, 2017 at 3:36 pm

      Don’t call out the Dookster if you don’t want other heads jumpin’ in on this race game– and I’m here to play all sides. Let him stay quiet with regard to race and others do the same, and pretty soon you guys might be able to call yourselves “respectable” again. ;-D

      • Anonymous on March 21, 2017 at 12:20 am

        Apparently your new here. Dookie is the resident racist.

      • Bigdoofie on March 21, 2017 at 12:19 pm

        Hahahaha big dookie/cookie and boblaw. Dont you get it? Nobody thinks you all are funny. Get a life.

        • Big Cookie on March 22, 2017 at 9:36 am

          Again, get it right. You wrote “Nobody thinks you all are funny”.

          Proper Southern Maryland speak would be “Nobody thinks y’all are funny”

    • Anonomous on March 20, 2017 at 10:33 pm

      Big Dookie, are you related to big cookie? At least your fat a$s knows you look like ish. Hence your name. Get a life and stop bashing people w your twitter fingers. Bet you wouldn’t hide behind your computer if either one of these boys were in your vicinity. Lmfao. Pos. Get a life. Bama.

      • Anonymous on March 21, 2017 at 12:21 am

        Why don’t you get a life and learn proper English and grammar? Your posts are pathetic and we cannot take them seriously.

      • Bob Lob Law on March 21, 2017 at 7:53 am

        You can’t even spell anonymous correctly. Which means we can’t take anything you say seriously.

      • Big Wookie on March 21, 2017 at 9:32 am

        “Bet you wouldn’t hide behind your computer” says anonomous!
        I always get a kick out of it when someone complains about someone else doing something by doing the same thing. I’ll be you don’t even see what you’re doing. Idiot! Bama

        (I only said Bama because it seems to be an insult of some sort)

  12. Big Dookie on March 21, 2017 at 11:21 am

    So I guess the 2nd amendment only applies to white boys huh? Two young brothers exercising their rights and they get arrested and have their reputations tarnished? Typical trump racist ideologies.

    • Willie on March 21, 2017 at 11:06 pm

      Look at the picture again dummy. There is a difference.

    • Anonymous X on March 22, 2017 at 3:13 pm

      You’re an idiot. “Felon in possession of firearm/ammunition.” Any white boy with the same restriction would have the same charge due to the above quote from the article. Maybe if you could admit a criminal, white or black, had it coming once in a while then people could take you seriously. If we lived in the world that you seem to want judging by your posts then we would all need bullet proof vests just to walk to our cars. Move to Chicago if you want that kind of life that bad.
