    Shingles and Shade, hmmmm, definitely something missing between these two. Roof! That’s it! Put out a BOLO ASAP!

    I wonder how criminals get a hold of handguns so easily. Oh wait I forgot, they are sold everywhere.

    • Tunnel Vision Shawn on January 11, 2019 at 8:34 pm

      I wonder how criminals get hold of cocaine, and marijuana? Oh wait i forgot, they are illegal.

      • Shawn on January 17, 2019 at 4:26 pm

        100% of all guns involved in crimes can be tracked to a legal purchase or sale.

    I will never understand how all these people live in glass houses and are quick to judge the next person. It is disgusting you people do not know all the details or truth all you see is what the baynet and some newsnet posts. The man on the left is my old co workers boyfriend a man of God who was always at church with his family, a man who would give the shirt off his back to anyone in need. Gerell and his girlfriend have been together almost a decade he has a great job hard working man and she has a great job working on the base. Before you ignorant judgement people wrote disgusting judgemental comments think about all the people it hurts especially his family. Instead of spending your time making these rude judgemental comments why don’t you pray for both of these men and their families.

      You’re right. These two boyz are good boyz and didn’t do nothing wrong. They just have drugs and guns and money because they is good boyz. We be hatin’ cause we don’t know theyz strugglez. The cops must’ve planted everything including all of the surveillance that led up to the probable cause for a warrant.

      Well I guess they shouldn’t be dealing drugs and act more like Godly upstanding citizens and people wouldn’t have to place judgement. I mean if your face is blasted on the newspaper with an article like that, you can only get 1 picture painted…drug dealers!

      Clearly the person you claim to know and the person in the news, leads a double life. Just like members of the mob who claim to operate legitimate businesses and in reality plague society.

      I would rather pray for all the innocent victims lives their product destroyed.

    • Anon on January 15, 2019 at 10:25 am

      Well his criminal acts landed him in prison and if he lived with this “girlfriend” then she will probably lose her clearance (if she has one) and also possibly lose her job. He screwed up both of their futures. Hopefully it wasn’t her house they found all this stuff at!

    • No Whining Zone on January 16, 2019 at 12:01 pm

      Yes KM, it is clear that you “never understand”. Let’s see why:

      First thing you should get a grip on, is the difference between Christians and churches.

      One thing is – not everyone in “church” is worshiping the one true God, or seeking to do his will in their lives. (If you want to find out anything true about Him, check out a KJV bible at the library and read it – without preconceived ideas or denominational bias).

      Then observe how that church attendance on Sunday has no affect or correlation to congregational behavior on Saturday nights.

      How the “church feels” is not always equal to how “God feels” about things. Now, that’s enough of religious aspects of your confusion. Let’s move on…

      Lastly, People “are” what they “do”. Sorry if the comments from others hurt, but consider your drug using/selling, gun toting, hood rat church goers’ behavior, and don’t be so worried about what “others” say about it.

        You are a disgusting human being. I’ll let God take care of you and your judgemental ass.

    DONT COMMENT ON WHAT YOU DONT KNOW.

    • KM A$$ on January 11, 2019 at 7:35 pm

      Or what? You gonna come beat me up? I’d love to see that.

    • James Reardon on January 11, 2019 at 8:26 pm

      Wow you sound like you lost your hook up

    • Dindu Nuffins on January 11, 2019 at 9:03 pm

      Well, I DO know they were caught with drugs and handguns. That makes them criminals. Who cares if one of them has a girlfriend that works on base. Does that absolve him of following our laws?

      • Kay Marie on January 12, 2019 at 8:12 am

        No it doesn’t and I only mentioned that because she was my old co worker and I used to work on base with her.

          Stop lying! You just a crazy chicken head, that’s all.

      Caps lock much? Just what are you going to do?

      • Kay Marie on January 12, 2019 at 1:05 pm

        I was simply stating don’t be so quick to judge when you don’t all the details or the full story.

        • Malcom X on January 13, 2019 at 2:53 pm

          Give us the real story. I’ll wait.

    KM/Kay Marie,

    Maybe THEY should have thought about their families!
    And the man on the left is such a “man of god” would have have committed his crimes?

  7. Kay Marie on January 12, 2019 at 7:55 am

    Wow all of you are so ignorant. You don’t know the facts and no where did it say drugs were found on them it was in the house they were at. You all read something and are so quick to judge and open your mouth. You guys are worried about some weed but have no problem with the fact that child molesters and rapists are everywhere in your kids schools, doctors, your neighbor, etc. RKelly has a documentary out that shows the disgusting human being is . A sex cult and URINATED in a young adolescents mouth but his mucus records spiked after that.

    • Charles on January 12, 2019 at 9:37 am

      Talk about the pot calling the kettle black

      • Mr. Johnson on January 13, 2019 at 8:54 am

        Agreed, our community suffers while these guys spread more drugs around. And what is worse is the fact that people keep making excuses for these kinds of acts.

  8. C on January 13, 2019 at 8:21 am

    I would love to see the outcome of every case posted …Then everyone would really understand our justice system. .

  9. Malcom X on January 13, 2019 at 2:54 pm

    Racist cops again. These guys are clearly innocent.
