      My guess is these incidents will keep happening. We need assistance and programs for these poor, minority communities.

      Until we get an update a friends “word” is only an assumption. Not saying that that your logic in fake news media is wrong. But assumptions are not credible. Til further notice.

    • Joe on October 13, 2019 at 1:16 pm

      So, you anonymously post that an anonymous friend posted on snapchat that an anonymous person shot them self in the head. And you follow up with Trump and Republicans? Yeah, I’m sure you’re a source of info we should trust. SMH

    River Bay? Not surprising. That’s the last really bad ghetto neighborhood before The Park gets more rural and quiet. The bad part is that a much better neighborhood is connected to that area where there’s really nice houses and no garbage all over the ground and the ghetto scum toss their garbage all over the whole area.

    What’s also “fake news” is the garbage that the clueless and biased idiots on here spew about the entire Lexington Park area being a ghetto slum.

      It doesn’t help that Lexington Park covers a third of the bottom county. Perhaps we should state the “communities off of Great Mills Rd.”

        & this is why our children are turning out to be little disgusting hood rats. my 9 yr old niece came home singing a song “I got murder on my mind” written by a guy who is currently doing life for murdering someone.. she did she know this (let alone the words) KIDS AT SCHOOL.

        if you want to raise your kid to be a hood rat – cool – tell them to leave that sh!t at home! MY kids are at school to LEARN!

        • Ok but just one thing... on October 15, 2019 at 6:21 am

          I hope they do learn.
          Maybe they can teach you to write English.
          “she did she know this…”

        A third of the county? Your math is WAY off. Look at a map. Better yet, get out once in a while…see how far south you can drive. It’ll surprise you!

      While it doesn’t negate the fact that folks shouldn’t litter and throw their garbage, who would actually build their house there? River Bay was established as a pretty crappy place and it was known low income – before they bought. Most people aren’t going to choose to build right beside low income places.

        Ah, that was the beauty of River Bay. It was one of the “Sure, you can build out 20 McMansions, but you have to build out X units of affordable housing that must take Section 8 to get the permits” developments. It’s all the rage, the idea beaing that kids in the low income housing see how nice the kids in the single family homes have it and it will motivate them. thats why most of your subdivisions built in the development district in the last 15 years have both single family homes and townhomes combined. Northern Westbury and the new ones on Indian Bridge are good examples.

        In River Bay, they built out the single family homes and sold them, then continued the road and built out the townhomes. So, no the original buyers of those houses didnt know. People buy the single family houses becuase for the sqaure footage, the price is great.

          The way I remember it, River Bay was actually built up well before all of those little mcmansions on that road. I remember driving back through there to visit friends (all young-adults who rented the town-homes because of how cheap they were for the square-footage) from 2007-2009, and the neighborhoods at the front of that road were all still under construction; but the town-homes were completed and occupied.
