    That’s sad. But reckless.

      Extremely reckless. I have zero sympathy

        It’s cool to disparage an event or someone till it becomes personal for someone you know or love. Keep your hatred to yourself.

        Because you’re a liberal asshol# Shawn. It’s the motorcycle not the rider, just like it’s the gun not the shooter, right Shawn you hypocrite punk. He shouldn’t have been riding like that, but he wasn’t out there trying to hurt anyone and it’s a damn shame when someone dies at such a young age. That was somebody’s son you ignorant D-head. Hey Shawn, maybe you should get a motorcycle.

        • Shawn on September 1, 2019 at 10:30 pm

          I have a motorcycle

          • Harry Callahan on September 2, 2019 at 9:35 am

            Then it needs to be banned. Someone from the ATF,…I mean DMV will be at your house for a buy back, so we can ban these dangerous firearms,…I mean motorcycles and get them off the streets.
            We need to end motorcycle violence, right Shawn? It begins with you.

            My motorcycle is not designed to kill. It’s was built for transportation guns are built for one purpose: to kill.

          • Harry Callahan on September 3, 2019 at 6:13 pm

            Actually from their track record, it seems they are designed to kill…the rider. They are too dangerous Shawny and need to be banned. (Don’t like it when someone wants to ban what you like, do ya punk? Hypocrite bastard.
            Guns weren’t designed to kill, stooge, they were designed to fire a projectile. To kill is an intent. What you do with that projectile firing tool is up to you. A gun can BE USED to kill, warn, or wound, or collect and never be fired (but that’s such a waste). You little liberal sissies need to remember net time you want to ban something others like, that what you like can also be banned, like your sissy bikes or maybe your TIDE PODS since you abuse them also.
            Go get a mocha sissy flappy frappy latte and think about it…quietly.

            Guns are built for one purpose: to kill. people that design and engineer guns, compete with each other to create a more efficient weapon. Anybody that uses guns are trained to kill with them. Only a true snowflake would believe that guns are produced to wound people.

          • Harry Callahan on September 5, 2019 at 7:41 pm

            You have a motorcycle Shawn you liberal puke? You don’t NEED a motorcycle. I thought you libs were concerned about climate change.
            Shame on you burning that fossil fuel, you need to trade it in on a scooter and cut back on that carbon footprint lunalib.

      • lindsey on August 29, 2019 at 10:45 pm

        that’s my cousin. it was reckless. we know. but his mother and father just lost a child. leave your comments to your unhappy self.

          Agreed. But at least he wont be performing anymore reckless stunts, just say’n.

          Its a public comment forum. He can say whatever he wants. You, on the other hand, don’t have to look.

          • lindsey on August 31, 2019 at 1:37 am

            i’m sorry, why are you anonymous? hiding behind a screen. you, in fact, don’t have to comment anything. imagine losing the person closest to you, and then coming on here and reading this. they’re going to. it’s inevitable. again, keep the nasty comments to yourself. my aunt and uncle lost their son. maybe one day you’ll feel that pain and someone will say the things you’re saying.

          The wonderful thing about America is that you don’t have to read the comments section. You don’t have to go to this site, pickup your device or even connect to the internet. People in America also get to express their feelings. It’s wonderful here in America. If you prefer to be controlled, please seek asylum in the People’s Republic of China, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea or the Republic of Cuba.

          No Shawn, you are totally wrong.
          And if they were only designed with the purpose of killing, SO F’ING WHAT. THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT. Bow and arrow, dagger, so F’ing what you little punk ass bitc#. Only a little snowflake sissy would want to ban guns because they are scared of them.
          GET USED TO IT SISSY, THEY AREN’T GOING ANYWHERE.
          What we need to ban are UnAmerican pukes like you.
          Planned parenthood is also designed and engineered to kill.

    Sad that he was in a someone controlled environment performing stunts and it costs him his life. Most do this type stuff out on the main roads and cause injury/death to not only themselves but others. My heart and prayers are with this young mans family & friends.

    • Bwdesmo on August 29, 2019 at 10:38 am

      agreed, my first thought was given all the beltway dummies I see doing this he was practicing in a controlled environment, sad, learning to stunt is obviously an “at risk” activity

      controlled environment? a parking lot with public access? hardly controlled.

    He was doing something he loved and he will be missed by many. So maybe instead of trying to put the blame on something or on a reason we remember him for who he was and who he’s made an impact on

  12. Susan on August 30, 2019 at 7:21 am

    Sam was a great person who would do anything for anybody if you asked him. Sam’s accident and death was due to a bad decision that he made. Before anyone places judgement just remember as we get older we tend to forget some of the decision we had made as young adults and how many times we might have put our own lives in jeopardy. I knew Sam and my family will miss him dearly. We wish this event had never happened but it did and know my family and Sam’s need to learn to live our lives without him. Thank you to everyone who are sending prayers they are appreciated more than you can imagine.

    Why is there even a damn comment box to begin with?! To those of you who sitting there saying that the dont have sympathy shut your damn mouths. Regardless of the situation a life was lost and just because it wasnt someone you knew doesnt mean you can go bashing on another person and their family. His parents just lost one of their children and have to bury him. His family lost a part of them. The girl whom he loved and cared for just lost the man she loved and wanted to build a life with. Our world’s have just been turned upside down. So yall keep your damn negativity to yourselves because one day itll be someone you know and love and you’ll then see how we feel.

    I was curious and read the comments on SouthernMaryland News nets website .
    I can attest that some people can make very snarky uncaring back stabbing comments even to a dead man and really what good are negative uncaring comments .
    Those negative comments serve no purpose only to convey the lack of moral character the writer of the comments has .

    Better yet , the better road taken should be to mentor to others and use this horrible incident as an example of what not to do . and leave all the negative commentary out of this.
    You are a pretty sorry excuse for a human if you can’t show compassion in the light of someone not using due diligence
    God bless this man and his family and friends . Help his survivors get through their pain of loss

    • The REAL Truth on August 31, 2019 at 2:34 pm

      Actually, the better road was for this guy to not do his Evel Kinevel impression in the parking lot. Then, there would be no comments.

      SMNewsnet won’t even publish the comment I made so, be happy they are as nice as they are.

    Wow…just Wow. I am absolutely astonished by what some Americans think is OK to say at a time of tragedy for an individual and their family. If your were at Sams funeral, is that what you would tell the mother and father? Social media seems to have made it acceptable to post completely inappropriate comments as we hide behind the vail of the internet. To all the inaaprioate commenters, I sincerely hope you don’t receive the type of inappropriate comments you left for Sam’s family, but if a similar tragedy happens to your family, I do hope that you recognize the tragedy your family is going through and the support that your community gives you without subjecting you to unnecessary comments and remarks. That’s really what makes America great, IMHO.

  23. Walt Kawolski on September 5, 2019 at 7:30 pm

    They all have their attributes, but all the way around, go with the Mustang, softneck you won’t be sorry. I mean it ain’t no ’72 Gran Torino, but you take care of it and drive like ya got some GD sense and she’ll never let ya down. The Challenger would be next, but there isn’t anything I really like about the Camaro at all.
    I give ya credit kid, for wantin’ a real car instead of one of those little sissy ass cars like Prius, Fiat, Smart car, yaris or any other of those little corpse cans. Get that straight and we’ll teach ya how to shotgun PBRs. Good luck kid.
