    So why no pictures and name of the attacker?

    • CB D Train on June 4, 2019 at 8:16 am

      It was a machete attack, which typically indicates “not white attacker”. If the attacker was a white dude named Kevin Smith, we’d have his pictures, and the mug shot from every arrest… White privilege or something

    Good job. That is what happens when you got cops on the street.

    I hope this don’t hurt weed sales in the parking lot.

    • Not a Tattletale on June 5, 2019 at 3:47 am

      That would suck. Who wants to travel to but your pot? I’m glad we agree Mr.Snitch!

        Well i hate getting jewed at the dispensaries I know that. So does 3/4 of us. Drop the prices and maybe we’d turn into a regular. If we’re not, there’s a reason why.

  4. CJ on June 3, 2019 at 12:59 pm

    Exactly why we moved away from Waldorf.

      Crime is anywhere and everywhere you go.

      • CJ on June 5, 2019 at 8:24 am

        Look at the crime map on the Charles County police office website. Obviously crime is everywhere, but it’s also extremely concentrated in some places more than others. Just in Waldorf alone, crime in general is more prevalent in the St. Charles area more so than on the other side of 301 (the Rt. 228 side). I moved from Waldorf to Newburg, which is still pretty country and crime is much lower in that area.

        Excuse me??? Waldorf has 5x the trash than say, right over in VA, or even Calvert or St.marys. If you think Watford is the same, you’re just delusional. They have RUINED waldorf. The blacks and illegals. I’ll say it idc, because it’s the 100% truth and if you can’t see that you’re retarded!

          I see you’re nothing but a racist POS! This website alone shows more crime in St. Mary’s county than Charles County.

      • Truthteller on June 5, 2019 at 3:39 pm

        Umm, it’s nowhere like waldorf. I’m in mechanicsville, you cannot compare here to waldorf. Apples and oranges.

        • LOL on June 8, 2019 at 12:13 pm

    AGAIN,this man has been arrested several times for dangerous weapon and assault,let out on bond and dissapeared for 2 years until another attack.WHY DO THE JUDGES LET THIS ANIMAL ROAM OUR COUNTY AND PUT US AT RISK?THESE JUDGES NEED TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE.

    • Not a racist like anonymous on June 5, 2019 at 8:01 am

      The answer to why is simple. He is simply fleeing violence from his country, and seeking a sanctuary in America for his family. We couldnt possibly inconvenience him with incarceration. Come on man. Its 2019. You sir are a RACIST bro, for even thinking he needs to be held accountable for his actions.

      (for you idiots, this is called sarcasm, that is all)

      • Reality Show on June 6, 2019 at 8:58 am

        You nailed it bother.

        Why don’t people have the sense that God gave a rock?

        The dems set up the laws to flood the country with their zombie voters.

        They don’t give a rat’s a$$ about safety, security, OR ASSYLUM!

  9. Shocked at the lack of intelligence on June 4, 2019 at 3:44 pm

    In response to the first question. His name and picture are clearly displayed
    To the last question. I heard the entire thing being dispatched on here.
    And please tell me why it would be fake news and why would they put something like this up as fake?

    • Shocked at the irony on June 5, 2019 at 8:09 am

      The original story posted didnt have a name, or photos. It wasnt until 24 hours later that the pictures and identity were added. Speaking of no intelligence, you couldnt even be bothered to “reply” to the post in question? Was that too difficult for you to comprehend? You didnt think it plausible that maybe the pics were added later when the story was updated. You couldnt read the original, and then read the update? Where in the original story does it give a name? Exactly, it doesnt, no name, no pics. Relax.

      Also, since the audio is apparently a point of contention in the comments section, I will note that I see the audio bar in the story, but I also can not play the audio.

    • Sylvette on June 5, 2019 at 11:44 am

      in first question person’s defense whom asked question on june 3rd in AM, i know for a fact there was NO name or picture listed when this article was published early on june 3rd for I too originally read it before it was updated on june 4th..

    So is this turd an MS13 gang member? The machete is their favorite weapon of choice according to news reports. If he is they need to find a way to keep his worthless @$$ locked away for good.

      Don’t know Pam, but because of the President’s threat of tariffs, Mexico stopped a caravan of illegals today on it’s southern border, arrested 2 illegal immigrant traffickers, Irenio Mujica and Cristobal Sanchez who have been organizing caravans and smuggling them through Mexico for pay since 2008. They are also sending 6,000 troops to their southern border to secure it.
