    Lance what has happened to you? You used to be a good guy now you’re total mess. Under age kids? Drugs? Is it possible for you to even get lower?

    Wow, a pervert and a death dealer. His family must be so proud. People like him will never be a contributor and will always be a taker and destroyer of lives. Waste of air, waste of taxpayer money, and a total waste of a human life.

      But….but…but Obama said drug dealing was a nonviolent crime and reduced the sentences for over a thousand because of that. Even ones in for life or using guns but here you call this nonviolent criminal a death dealer! Remember Maryland put him in the WH twice, except for two counties.

        Liberalism at it’s finest. Thanks Obama.

        And what does former POTUS have to do with this case. Most drug offernders are non violent but keep in mind if there was no market for the use of drugs then we would not be having this discussion about this now would we???

          This is the whole chicken or the egg controversy. If there wasn’t users there wouldn’t be dealers and if there wasn’t dealers the users wouldn’t have such easy access or wouldn’t have used in the first place. I, personally, don’t care who’s to blame I just want people to stop being POS’s, make a legal living, pay taxes, and leave law abiding citizens alone. That goes for the users, dealers, thieves, rapists, child molesters, murderers, and every other piece of trash in the state. We would all be better off if these people just dried up and blew away.

            Perhaps this guy should apply to the Prince Georges County School System for a job.

    And once again, we see that the criminals in our society have absolutely no fear and no respect for the criminal justice system. Gee, I wonder why? Could it be the judges who set such light sentences IF there is ever a prosecution AND conviction, or is it the high number of NOLLE PROSS charges?
    Anyone want to bet that ythis criminal is already back to selling his poison to anyone with cash?

    Come on, this guy was obviously profiled because of his color, and obviously has a heroin addiction himself. Why is there never such vitriol when white boys do the same thing (selling dope)?

      I have seen you on here too long to make a stupid comment such as this. You should know as well as I do that every pieces of scum on here gets the same treatment and if you weren’t so colorblind you could see that too. I could care less if he has a heroin addiction, he is responsible for that and every other miserable thing he does with his life.

        Don’t waste your time on this troll.

          Speaking of trolls…..

        Considering he has named himself big “feces” I would wouldn’t take anything that comes from him as intelligent nor factual. It’s basically “feces” talking “feces”, right?

      • youre so annoying on April 21, 2017 at 1:13 am

        dont be so butt hurt, pretty sure this comment was simply sarcasm.. calm down!

          You must be new here. Welcome aboard.

  5. JQ Public on April 18, 2017 at 3:38 pm

    What a waste! Sad that these criminals get locked up and two days later are back on the street!

  6. Ted Nugent on April 19, 2017 at 8:20 am

    California is loving their governor’s policy of releasing thousands of criminals back into society. Maybe MD should try it. (That was sarcasm for the intellectually challenged)

    • Nick on April 20, 2017 at 6:26 am

      MD already releases them under the “Catch and Release Program.”

    I sure hope that the parents of this 14 year old took away her access to Facebook, any access to computers and her cell phone if she has one. She has certainly shown her parents that she cannot be trusted!

    • Anonymous on April 21, 2017 at 8:35 am

      Yes, I agree. Punish the victim. Moron.

      • John Stark on April 24, 2017 at 12:07 pm

        While I understand your comment, I disagree that this girl is innocent in this story. I don’t want to put all the blame on her but obviously, she was in contact and exchanging photos with this scum. She has shown that she can’t be trusted with internet access or a cell phone. If I were her parent, you can bet she would lose her cell phone and any computer that had internet access. Does she have parents that want to be her buddy or are they willing to do the tough job of parenting?
