Bullett then stole two ounces of marijuana from a table located in the room, and demanded the victim give him the rest of the marijuana he had. Bullett then searched the room and located a lock box containing six more ounces of marijuana. At some point during the robbery one of the men also took the victim’s wallet from the same table the marijuana was located.  The lock box was valued at $70, the wallet contained $40, and police valued the marijuana at approximately $1,200.

    Again, the marijuana bunch shows what losers they really are. You peddle with this crap and I hope you don’t expect to live too long. These 4 turds were willing to risk their freedom for a little high. And the dumba$$ who is supposed to be studying and getting an education, you are just as big a loser. Congratulations geniuses, you did it!

      • Anon on February 14, 2018 at 4:07 pm

        What does this have to do with the gun and the beating the victim received? PS did not conduct this investigation. The SM County Sheriff’s Office did.

        • GetYourFactsStraight on February 14, 2018 at 6:13 pm

          Actually the investigation is ongoing, and in this country you’re innocent until proven guilty! Everything mentioned in this article, is alleged. There has been no proof of an actual gun.

        Exemplary character.. you pull a gun on someone and physically assault them 4 on 1 and that makes you exemplary. I’m not denying that this county is loaded with racist cops. In fact the cops who arrested these guys were probably racist based on statistics alone. But be reasonable. When someone commits a felony like this and gets arrested, that means the law enforcement agency is functioning as intended. And an act like that demonstrates character that is anything but exemplary.

        • Deneale on February 15, 2018 at 2:02 pm

      • senior smcm student on February 14, 2018 at 5:28 pm

        Public Safety didn’t arrest them the sheriff did. The issue of whether or not public safety is corrupt would only be an argument if this was solely a drug case, but its not. They assaulted someone and brought a gun into play. That changes everything. Good people make mistakes, but I wouldn’t qualify beating someone up as a ‘nice student’ thing to do.

        • Roy Fedders on February 17, 2018 at 3:09 pm

          Public Safety has no authority to “arrest” The College does not want police on Campus. Never did. Only MSP or Sheriff’s Office has this authority. In this case, the Sheriff’s Office made the arrest. In addition, ever since this College President has came on board, the College has had problems. Dropped enrollment that continues and now this. All in the name of inclusiveness and political correctness? Is it worth it?

          • somdforever on March 15, 2018 at 12:50 pm

            The officers at SMCM were all made Commissioned Special Police Officers around 2011/2012. With that title came powers of arrest. So, unless SMCM, and their liberal-minded administrators, decided once again to use only public safety officers, those SPO’s certainly do have the authority to arrest!

      • Johnny Appleseed 2.0 on February 14, 2018 at 5:35 pm

        They literally beat and robbed someone. So I doubt they have “exemplary” character.

      • Ichabod on February 14, 2018 at 5:51 pm

        Where does the “exemplary character” fit in with the beating of “the victim with their fists about the head and face,” or having a semi-automatic pistol on campus? And how exactly is Public Safety “corrupt?”

        • Jane Smith on February 14, 2018 at 7:47 pm

          They were nice kids, I never had a problem with any of them. They were always kind and respectful. I had class with some of them. 2 of them stood up for me when I was being bullied.

            @ JOSH FURY: Why, do you know these four? If you do, please tell everyone what they are really like. If not, please do not judge someone on one mistake. Everyone has the ability to do evil, especially those who are currently judging these four. However, while everyone can do evil, they can also do good. But you would not hear what good they have done…why not try to find out?

        • Reality Sucks on February 23, 2018 at 1:26 pm

          Johnny,
          What they have been trying to tell you is that the story of the victim is not adding up. This was a drug dealer on campus and he clearly fabricated the gun because it would look bad to know that he started a fight and got beat up. One of them did take weed but it was more because of the disagreement. No gun was found because no gun was involved. From all accounts none of these boys ever had a gun. So what they have been trying to tell you, is that don’t jump to conclusions. We have all heard about victims lying before. If you knew these boys, you would know that the victims account does not add up one bit.

          • Anonymous on March 14, 2018 at 8:54 pm

            Okay then no gun.thats a good thing. Just the FOUR of them robbing there drug hook up.that shows real character. Come on people they think because their on the basketball team the can do what they want. Just a bunch of worthless crooks.

          lets get something REAL STRIAGHT!!!!.. Kevin Makle didn’t come from the ghetto. You assume he did because of the color of his skin I’m guessing which makes you a complete ass!. I know this young man personally and he is one of the most respectful people you could ever meet in life.He has never ever been in trouble in school from pre-K to 12th grade, never was allowed to hang with the kinda kids he got locked up with, and always had excellent grades. I do believe he is very innocent, and the boy wouldn’t ever put his hands on anyone unless it was self defense. If you ever asked anyone about Kevin they would never ever be able to speak a nasty, evil, or mean word about him, because he was raised in a very loving, clean, and non ghetto environment. KNOW WHO YOUR REALLY SPEAKING ABOUT BEFORE YOU SPEAK!.

          • BS on March 23, 2018 at 12:53 am

            Kevin Makle was a lookout in an armed robbery, nothing more and definitely nothing less. He hung with the wrong crew and should pay for the crime he committed, when he makes his deal in court he will have to admit to his role in the crimes he committed. Let him be a lesson to other “good Kids” and when your friends decide to do something stupid, walk away. Kevin Makle will have to go thru the rest of his life knowing when someone googles his name it won’t come up as a good kid and a basketball player, but as a criminal who took part in an armed robbery to steal drugs.

How do you know these two did not study? Simply because they were caught smoking? It is like this in most colleges, not just ours.

If you don’t think many athletes at D3 schools are receiving some type of scholarship that is indirectly tied to their respective athletic prowess, you’d be making a mistake…Ivy league schools are the same way…they have big time athletics (D1) but claim to ‘not give athletic scholarships’; the star players are simply getting scholarships in the name of something else.

      Yes, these men are adults and made a poor decision that they will live with. But you too, presumably, are also an adult and should learn more about how the legal system works, or more aptly, doesnt work so you can appreciate how dumb your comment is about locking them away for a long time.

These violent people deserve prison and I would rather keep the community safe by locking them away then take a slim chance they won’t do it again. Unfortunately your way of thinking is taking over the justice system and violent crime is on the rise. This is no coincidence.

    With the added pictures I am assuming they were given a free ride and other perks because of their athletic ability. I wonder if they were low income and this was their opportunity to get a real education and marketable skill while playing basketball for the university. No matter what the reason they have flushed all those opportunities down the toilet now. If I were their parent I would want to beat them within an inch of their lives for ruining what could have led to a lucrative career. I just hope the judge doesn’t go easy on them due to being athletic. That happens all over the US and it isn’t right. This was a violent felony and needs to be treated as such.

      D 3 athletes don’t receive any athletic money towards tuition. This is common knowledge within the NCAA ranks only division 1 and 2 athletes can get money for sports. As a former d3 athlete i would love if they gave us some money towards tuition but unfortunately, this is not the case, d3 athletes actually pay for about half the gear the school “gives” you. Additionally, these were d3 basketball players they were never going to have pro careers, its a shame they made a bad decision but they hardly had a free ride.

    • Anonymous on February 14, 2018 at 6:07 pm

      As someone ( a white male) who went to the school and was a part of the minority scholars group on campus, no one gets any scholarships for being a minority. Also, to write someone off entirely as throwing away their future is a huge misjudgment. The comments throughout this thread are a stark reminder of the issues we face as a country. Instead of assuming you know something from one little article, how about you question what might have drawn them to do this, if they did. What factors influenced their decision? How can people help others to avoid getting in similar situations that would cause them to have to do something like this. The system is broken, has been broken since the dawning of the USA, not the people.

    After doing further research into this story the “Reporters” don’t seem to correctly identify these men as Seahawk ‘players’. Only one (Judge Payne) seems to actually be currently a part of the St Mary’s College Men’s Basketball Team. It looks like Kyndle Jones never stepped foot on the basketball court for the Seahawks, and Marquis Bullett and Kevin Makle have not been on the court since December. ALL THREE ARE NOT ON THE CURRENT ROSTER>>>>>>>My guess is they were dismissed from the team prior to this event and NOT associated with the team at all. I know Chris Harney would never allow this type of behavior in his Basketball Program!!! All the facts should be out there before your Newspaper makes this type of article title about our local college sports team!!!!!!

And just what does their background or where they came from have to do with anything? Does a certain background or hometown give one special rights? Tell me the location, please. And the part about educating people on gun violence and how something like this can change your life forever….? Wait a minute… did either of these clowns ever watch a movie on TV? Did they ever read? Did they ever walk out the front door? Who needs to be told that it is bad to use a gun to commit a crime? Who needs to be taught that if you commit a crime you go to jail? Do colleges need to start offering majors in “How to life life without going to jail”? Have you ever, in your entire life, heard the phrase “personal accountability”? Talk about unproductive… the liberal agenda of “everybody gets a trophy” is just that. I don’t care if they are purple; there is no defense for beating and robbing another of anything. I think there is a seat in the same place you mentioned for those who do defend them.

Are you saying they came from a home where the parents had no parenting skills to teach their kids the difference between right and wrong? Are you saying they came from a poor background? If so, and they didn’t receive special privileges to attend an honors college, how could they afford to pay tuition at one of the most expensive schools in the US? Please tell us why “we” should be educating these criminals on personal accountability? Where were the parents? No snowflake, it is people like them, and you, who are creating unhealthy environments for young people. Why don’t you tell us how Chicago’s, or Baltimore’s healthy environment is working out! Once you’re able, or willing, to give us all this information, maybe, just maybe, someone would be willing to listen to what you have to say. Until then, your rhetoric “just ain’t makin’ it!”

    “Why do you reveal full names and sensitive information? Although they convicted a crime, they deserve protection of personality. And btw: #blm”

    Their full names are revealed as with any crime — it is public record. You can find their names and charges in the Maryland Court Records online. Second, the names and details of the crime should be revealed to the public because the public, and ESPECIALLY students, have a right to know what is happening in their community. They have a right to know this to protect their own safety. BLM has nothing to do with this.

    • Seahawk on February 14, 2018 at 8:27 pm

      Of course they have to know about what is going on in the community, but safety has nothing to do with sharing sensitive information and pictures. Moreover, the public, and ESPECIALLY students, should also know who this drug dealer this- why isn’t his*her photo made public? Maybe because s*he’s white!?

        None of this information is “sensitive.” It is basic information on who and what happened. It is the bare minimum to make public record.

        The victim is a Muslim man.

        And the last thing someone who supports BLM should be doing is victim-blaming. And assuming race. Because that is literally the same attitude you criticize daily. Moreover, the victim has the right to be protected– because they are a victim. It is no different than a sexual assault victim.

    Let’s not forget the lives that are at stake. Yes they had a gun, was it loaded? Would one of them even think about using it? Probably not, if they had any decency. No matter the race, we can all carry out these actions. For the racists out there, why even bother? We aren’t truly united because you guys will carry the believe to your death bed that Caucasian Americans are the better race. These are collegiate athletes who had an education and probably aren’t ever going to say that they have a degree. These are their lives that they decided to jeopardize and it’s not in any ones right to make matters worse. I hope for the better of these men and I wish all the ignorant folks, rudely commenting, would put themselves in their place. Would you want the authorities and the community to have mercy? Just because you may have been privledged does not mean for a second that these men had the same opportunities that you had. We need to work together to insure that our unprivileged, both black and white, learn to put their lives before every single decision they make.

      If you cause a person to believe that you may shoot them, it matters NOT if your gun turns out to be unloaded, disabled, or even just a toy.
      The “threat” appearing genuine – placing another human being “in fear” is all that is necessary to be considered a crime.

      When someone points a weapon at you, they are threatening your life – and therefore they deserve the penalty that the law sets forth for doing so. Racists or not.

After doing further research into this story the “Reporters” don’t seem to correctly identify these men as Seahawk ‘players’. Only one (Judge Payne) seems to actually be currently a part of the St Mary’s College Men’s Basketball Team. It looks like Kyndle Jones never stepped foot on the basketball court for the Seahawks, and Marquis Bullett and Kevin Makle have not been on the court since December. ALL THREE ARE NOT ON THE CURRENT ROSTER>>>>>>>My guess is they were dismissed from the team prior to this event and NOT associated with the team at all.

    Why is everyone focusing on them instead of the person selling the weed you all say the four guys threw their life away to get high what about the white guy that was selling weed he was doing that before they came along but he gets out of this? People can say all they want about how they threw their lives away but people smoke weed that’s against the law, people drink under 21 you only say something about them because they got caught but you haven’t considered the fact that you could get caught just like them

      The safety of the students on campus was the main issue in this case. That’s the important thing, a college should be a safe learning environment for all the students that attend. The gun and armed robbery were the main issues in this case b/c they’re a direct threat to the safety of the students on campus.

  61. Anon on February 15, 2018 at 8:21 am

    Let’s make this really simple.

    1. The comments about race and that assume these men’s socioeconomic background are disgusting. Why is there a moderator here if people can post vile comments like that?

    2. Yes, we need more information, but that does not in any way excuse victim-blaming.

    3. Assuming the victim was white and therefore is not in trouble is almost as bad as the racist comments against the perpetrator. You sound asinine because guess what — the victim was a Muslim man. A person of color.

    4. Justifying this horrific act of violence that caused these men to be charged with TWO felonies is not the proper response to racist comments. There is a presumption of innocence and we should absolutely consider what outside influences fostered these acts and decisions, but that does not support condoning violent and dangerous behavior. Anyone on campus could have been killed, injured, sexually assaulted, or coerced with that gun. Everyone of you students defending these men could have been the victim. There is nothing more important than student safety.

    5. Public Safety did not conduct this investigation. The SM County Sheriff’s Dept. did, and if you look on the MD Judiciary site, it clearly states for all four that there was probable cause.

    • anonymous on February 16, 2018 at 11:55 am

      1. Agreed
      2. Criminal Drug Distribution networks don’t get to claim “Victim” Status.
      3. Okay, we can call the drug dealer a …. that should be annihilated, does that make you feel better.
      4. I hope they didn’t commit the crime after the story was posted. Don’t put yourself in this situation you won’t be flasely or wrongfully accused i.e. O.J. Simpson in Vegas
      5. Public Safety is whom should have had the initial report of the incident. Public Safety can’t track down a Marijuana smell. Public Safety take your 2grams of Pot and never reports it, as property. Little drunk underage wite girls are walked to their dorm safely by Public Safety, not even written in a report. Hence the numerous allegations of corruption.

      St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office will blow anything out of proportion, even if the Robber told them first and foremost it was just him that did all the shenanigans. They, the SMCSO, goes by the motto “we will let the Court dealing with the truth,” entrapping needless people into the Judicial System. Often, because they don’t want to search for the full truth before willfully getting padded “Statistical Numerics” to help their “Resource Dollars.” Yet, they’ll waste those same tax dollars with 5 Officers at a single benign traffic stop, with untoward behavior (hanging out BS-ing ad nauseum) committing fraud on my MD taxpayer money.

    And the comments on this story are disgusting! On both sides!!! Condemning them and defending them on the basis of color. MLK dreamt of the time that all would be judged on the “CONTENT OF THEIR CHARACTER”. Well I don’t see much character to emulate on this board … from anyone.

    These young men made a very poor choice and they will suffer the consequences. I HOPE they learn from this and that somehow, they are allowed a 2nd chance at making the right choice, at a college education, at life. That this will not define them. Why? Because I would hope that for myself if I did the same, or for my son. Nothing is ever going to get better in this country without a return to personal responsibility on one hand and empathy on the other.

        To be honest though, how much of those stories come from the stereotype? Do you really think any news station, including our own, will post without some form of bias? Think about it: how many people here see this sort of thing happen often? I am a current student who (at one point) attended a school in Baltimore. Robbery was common; it just happened. If there were no shots and no violence, there was never any news about the event. It was commonplace; thankfully here, that isn’t the case.

    Who is the on campus drug dealer they robbed. Dear Editor why are used I hiding the name of a known dealer who has admitted to distribution on campus. If my calculations are correct he has almost half of a pound on campus and distributing narcotics where is the scale, baggies and other paraphernalia you did not mention in this article you made a drug dealer look like a robbery victim. Rewind rewind in St Mary’s distribution, scales, narcotics might fall under manufacturing and distribution laws.

    • Anon on February 16, 2018 at 2:31 pm

      The police have not released the name of the dealer because he is the victim of a violent crime and at risk of retaliation for reporting a violent crime committed against him. It is not public information yet and the editor could not possible know otherwise. The dealer may still be charged. However, victims of violent crimes are typically immune from charges because it would discourage victims from reporting. This is similar to bringing an underage person to the hospital for treatment or protecting victim of sexual assault. Nothing in this case is out of the ordinary in that regard.

      At the end of the day the main issue was the threat of a deadly weapon on campus that has risk of causing harm to the student body. The priority was getting the weapon taken away and restoring a safer environment for the students of St Mary’s

      • Ms. Flint on February 20, 2018 at 12:56 pm

        That makes sense. But there was no weapon. Not that they didn’t find a weapon. THERE WAS NO WEAPON.

      Can anyone decipher this for me? I don’t speak jibberish.

        Simple: there was no violence. Be thankful no one got hurt.

    All that cocoa butter and hair chemicals are leaving an oily sheen, upon the St Mary’s River. The EPA better look into this situation right quick!

      How do you know that kid killed all those kids? Were you there? Oh that’s right, the cops told you he did it. Just like the cops here said these 4 oustanding young men committed this robbery. Please don’t be a hypocrite; it doesn’t look good on you.

    Went to school with Jones. He was a good guy and a great friend I could never see him do anything like this. He was always in a good mood and never had an issue with anyone. Not praising him I’m just as confused as everyone on this site and just want to know the truth

    • Big Cookie on February 18, 2018 at 1:44 pm

      Well then, I guess you judgment should be called into question,

    • Ted Nugent on February 18, 2018 at 4:13 pm

      It’s simple; weed is more important than the 1st class education he was there to get. He’s a loser, plain and simple and now is a felon as well.

      • Ms. Flint on February 20, 2018 at 12:52 pm

        I can’t wait til u have to eat ur words. Ur probably an uneducated unathletic non black male who is jealous that these 4 young men are so intelligent and athletic. Just wait. U will see. Bless u sir

          You sound like a worthless breeder on welfare. Go back to dealing crack and watching The View, then STFU!

        • Ted Nugent on March 15, 2018 at 12:40 pm

          I will never eat my words because the statistics say that I am right. Uneducated? Nope. I do know that “unathletic” is not a word. How does that crow taste? If you put some hot sauce on it you can usually choke it down.

          • Gordon Shumway on July 13, 2018 at 10:40 am

            For some reason, the dictionaries that I have queried since reading your comment all show the word “unathletic” with definitions. I have not yet seen the result that shows “not a word”.
            Since you are on the Internet however, and unable to tell lies, I completely believe you that “unathletic” is not a word.

        • Adam 12 on March 16, 2018 at 9:28 am

          You call someone uneducated yet type out that half-baked ghetto speak sentence? Genius!

  92. Anonymous on February 20, 2018 at 9:25 am

    I guess some of you have never heard the term “innocent until proven guilty”. I don’t understand how someone can call the police and have someone arrested for robbing them of their ILLEGAL DRUGS…..

    • Ted Nugent on March 15, 2018 at 8:07 am

      The same way the government looks the other way at the millions of illegal aliens here in the country.

    I’m curious why this update was published, but other stories concerning other criminals don’t receive the same attention and updates when those criminals receive pre-trial release?

      Not really. They are still society’s parasites.

      No. Only when killed by a white police officer.

    I still say these guys are losers for trading a little weed for a first class education. I hope it was worth it.

  99. Duggerodell72 on March 15, 2018 at 2:46 pm

    I would say that these 3 basketball players just blew any chance of seeing any time playing ball for any college or NBA. But, yet again alot of players on the NBA already have criminal records for drugs and other offenses.

  100. Chopper on March 19, 2018 at 6:07 pm

    They are all filthy, disgusting animals. We need a weekly purge, to rid society of this criminal menace.

  101. Anonymous on July 11, 2018 at 1:03 pm

    So it’s okay for the guy that they robbed to be in possession of 8 ounces of marijuana at a college campus in a dorm? Strange how his mugshot isn’t up here too. A total of 8 ounces should be enough for a possession with intent to distribute charge.

    • Trumps Worlds on July 11, 2018 at 2:10 pm

      I AM MAKING THE ONLY PLAUSIBLE ASSUMPTION. THE VICTIM MUST BE WHITE. This is the first that I have heard of this type of prosecution. I agree that the “victim” is feloniously possessing CDS

    • Gigi on July 11, 2018 at 3:49 pm

      He’s probably white. I wonder if he was charged with anything. Only when you’re white can you call the cops on people for stealing illegal drugs and still be a victim.

      • SonjaD on July 12, 2018 at 6:13 am

        Apparently you can’t read. The victim didn’t call the police or even go to campus security. A group of other students reported it and the cops came to him. See what happens when you go off half cocked just trying to stir stuff up. Only in America can you be black, rob a store, pull a weapon on a cop and have a tax payer paid for plaque erected in your “honor”. See how that works? Bet this won’t get past the SMNEWS censors. lol

    • Anonymous on July 11, 2018 at 4:21 pm

      For the most part they try not to identify victims. At the very least they wouldn’t group the victim in with the people who assaulted him in the same article. To put your mind at ease, the victim is the same gender, race, and age range as the people who assaulted him. I guess the site feels that a group of guys ganging up on one person, assaulting them, and stealing from them is more of a story then a possession with intent to distribute charge.

      • Gigi on July 12, 2018 at 5:20 am

        Since you are so knowledgeable, was the victim charged with any crimes?

  102. TrumpLAND ST MARY'S on July 11, 2018 at 2:20 pm

    This whole event explains PERFECTLY how dangerous DRUG DEALING. The drug dealer invites, at anytime, violent occurrences for peddling their illegal ware….THE “VICTIM” HAS TO BE WHITE

    No whats ridiculous is he only got 18 months for armed robbery.The judges are the problem period.
