  4. July's Loser Winners on August 1, 2018 at 11:46 am

    What an exciting page this is, just full of depressing losers!

    It made the decision for this month’s “most low-life scum of SoMD” winner very difficult to assign. But we have 3 losers that fit the bill – and then some!

    So here it is, (in descending order): 3rd place – has to go to the grossly fugly “Lorin Megan Somers”.

    Thank you all for making this possible. Calvert could not be the same without you.

    2nd place – was taken by “Michael Renteria” appearing semi-conscious, in his pea-green designer straight jacket.

    AND THE 1ST PLACE JUST HAS TO GO TO———-YES! “Robert Baldwin” with the most inhuman, belligerent, stupid, retarded, wanna-be gang banger look, while sporting his “laughable” cartoon-worthy chest ink, proudly showing off his cleanest orange jumpsuit!

    Did anyone get arrested at National Night Out? Is NNO a suggestion that the relationship with the criminal justice system is ? Does it need improving?
