    I am sick and tired of seeing the police dressed up in soldier costumes.

      Well guess what? No one cares what you think, I’m sick of your ignorance.

      You’re stupid! The uniform doesn’t match a soldiers uniform at all. EST have a bigger outer carrier vests because they have hard trauma plates compared to soft body armor on normal patrol deputies have. They are the ones to break a door and clear the place a potential armed person. They are a different color because they are a special unit within the department.

      And why is that, you tool? Would you rather they dress in plain clothes so as to blend in with innocent bystanders? And what is it about soldier’s uniforms? It certainly seems as though you just have a problem with authority.

      Police are considered a paramilitary organization (hence the uniforms). They do a damn tough job and should be respected for their service – something you would never be able to do.

      First they aren’t costumes. Second I be willing to bet if you needed them you’d careless if they were protecting you in their underwear.

    So lets break this down…someone wants to harm their self, and the Militia Sheriff’s Office show up with their ASSAULT weapons (Military grade) ?? We Maryland residents cant protect ourselves. The irony

    • Pam442 on August 9, 2019 at 8:46 pm

      Look at the pictures of those things, that is why O’Malley outlawed them as they are too scary for the Surfs to own. You wouldn’t be able to sleep at night with those in the house and no telling when they might go off!

      Please, don’t try to break this down. Judging by your response, you simply don’t have the mental capacity to comprehend what has happened. As far as the comments about law enforcement showing up in military uniforms, this is something that they would prefer not to do. Unfortunately, people that want to do harm to themselves eventually want to do harm to others as well. Yes, the Sheriffs office showed up with there ASSAULT weapons. Maybe GUNGRABBERS, you failed to realize that the people that they are dealing with have assault weapons as well. In the past week, there were two mass shooting incidents. In both of these cases, the cowards used military weapons. Try to explain that irony to the families that lost their loved ones.

      I’ll break it down even better for you, since you’re simple minded. They show up prepared, they have no idea what the intent of the armed subject is. Gun laws are done by politicians, so take it up with them not the police. I bet you’re a criminal, probably why you can’t conceal & carry anyways. Loser

    • John on August 10, 2019 at 4:04 am

      Assault is a act not a type of weapon. Now they did show up with rifles due to the nature of the call. You do not know what kind of weapon or how many weapons a person has. If they show up with hand guns only and are met with someone who has armed themselves with multiple rifles then they are out gunned. They are only trying to prepare themselves to maybe match equal force.

    I love it. I wish the police would stop pussyfooting around and instead of being let’s negotiate just bust in and if they die so be it

    I use to live in that building before I moved and I know her she was the most amazing person ever but I heard from Someone that they evacuated the building and they were out there for hours.

    I know her she was my inspiration.

  9. You Idiots on August 10, 2019 at 4:57 pm

    And to note, all you see are lethal weapons. No non-lethal? Everyone has long guns.
