    It says they way they made entry into the secure building was someone let them go through when that person exited the building. This is why if you live in a secure building you never let anyone in if you don’t know them. If people just let anyone in then what is the sense of having a code to enter the building. As for these piece of crap murderers and thieves, let them rot in jail. The general public will be much better off without them around.

    Please tell me that’s not another white girl that has lost her mind! Disgusting human trash.

    • cheywolf on May 19, 2017 at 8:04 am

      Another white girl? Stop being racist as you can see they were black and white. No one put a gun to her head. She made her own choice, as did all the others. Criminals come in all forms and colors. Instead of judging by color start by an individuals character.

          Watchdawg here, And I agree Also. All these individuals made their Own choices. Color should have Nothing to do with this awful crime.

    6 idiots. Put them all in the electric chair to fry. Don’t care what you did or didn’t do. If you are with people and they kill someone, fry. Maybe people will stop and think before they roll out with others. Maryland does not have the electric chair, or any capital punishment does it? That is why these little idiots do what they want. This is why Maryland has almost no control on crime.

    how quickly everyone forgot about the mona farm murders — you are as guilty as who you hang with regardless!

    As a white person who voted for Trump, I love seeing dirt balls of many colors and both genders being locked up together!

    • xMosquito on May 21, 2017 at 8:46 am

      But you can’t stand it when they are just white and not many colors.

    • John on May 21, 2017 at 8:51 am

      That’s pretty obvious Yes! Trump voters would love to see anyone that hangs out with people of “many colors” locked up.

    I just hope they searched that bundle of dirty yarn on top of Dominique’s head. She’s probably got several weapons hidden in it! My kitties would love to play with that yarn!

    I’m sure some will take pleasure deals and serve little to know time.

    • Big Cookie on May 19, 2017 at 8:42 am

      What is a pleasure deal (auto correct?). That would be little to no time.

    I know that some of you are probably thinking “give em the death penalty” but I disagree with that even if it was still in effect. The death penalty would just give those scumbags the easy way out. If taxpayer money makes it possible for murderers to suffer in prison for the rest of their lives then that’s taxpayer money well spent far as I’m concerned.

      Your idea is terrible and you should feel bad.

      I’d rather they pave the roads, and fix the bridges, and hire really smart teachers… It may have changed in recent years, but the last statistic I saw was that it costs approximately $60k a year to house an inmate. For these 6 buffoons, that is $360k every year. $3.6 million after 10 years. If Maryland started executing all of the people that are never getting out, we could all have that “free” healthcare that everyone always whines about. Sometimes it is better to use your brain when you vote, not just your heart. Executing these animals would save $20 million+. Now multiply that by 10,000 inmates that are serving 100s and 100s of years, without ever the chance at parole (“Ill save you the time, $60k/year X 10,000 = $600,000,000). I don’t know how many inmates in Maryland fit the “life without parole” category. But the financial math is staggering. Rather than pay $600 billion to punish these a-holes, I’d rather just off them, but that’s just me

      • Off with their heads on May 19, 2017 at 8:01 am

        ^^^^ Typo, $600 million

    • cheywolf on May 19, 2017 at 8:05 am

      It would save the taxpayers millions.

    I hope your “property” and “money” were worth it. Idiots.

  11. When Keeping It Real Goes Wrong on May 19, 2017 at 11:27 am

    She drove Gemeny to Grant’s residence for cigarettes? Grant gave him 2 cigarettes. Yeah, “cigarettes”. I’m gonna go out on a limb and guess that wasn’t tobacco in those “cigarettes”…

    Very interesting that the report is very clear that those charged “knew the victims were home” and planned not just a burglary, but a home invasion. Makes it much worse than if they expected an empty apartment. Now that it is murder, that may no longer matter in the grand scheme of things, but it definitely changes the tone of trial when the prosecutors lay out their case. Hopefully none of these geniuses have reproduced.

    Also curious that Grant “wasn’t in the apartment”, but she heard gun shots “as she was running from the apartment”.

    Do people think before acting? Seriously. The 6 of them, SIX!!!, put their minds together, and came to the conclusion that this was a good idea. Sure they knew the victims, and they will be easily identified, but lets commit a home invasion, with a gun, and then escalate that to murder, those stupid cops will never crack this mystery… From the sounds of it, the cops had the case solved in about 45 minutes, then needed to take care of dotting the I’s and crossing the T’s to execute their warrants and make their arrests.

    I call BS so many things in this story don’t add up. The perps new and used to live with the victim. The went over to get cigarettes. Please this sounds like a case of drug deal gone bad

    Not funny sad! What is wrong with our young people today? Who is the blame? What can we do to move our young in a positive direction? Stop laughing start praying for the young people of today.Parents must be more involved in our kids life never stop teaching them it’s a parents job. Not teachers, preachers, police, courts,or jails. It starts at home!

    • Mr Justice on May 22, 2017 at 12:11 pm

      You said parents, now that’s funny. Most of these so called parents are worse than the kids they are having. Not the best role models. And based on some of the names given to these morons, I’d say they were doomed from the start.
