Hey Pit Bull lovers....would you leave YOUR young child with a pit bull? Statistics speak forRead More themselves. Yes other dogs do bite...but NOT like pit bulls. Ask the lady in a wheelchair that was killed spontaneously by her pit bull that she also "raised from a puppy". Sorry just don't trust PBs.
Vamp Chylde April 23, 2014 at 10:01 am
Look at the statistics pits bite less than most other breeds but the news only reports pit bullRead More bites so that's all people hear never hear the stories of how many pits have saved people or have protected their owners and children from muggings or even mountain lions and bears. Look at the statistics for dog temperament pit bulls score over 85 % pass more than all the popular breeds

Hey Teech. To answer your question, yes, my child is home alone with my pitbull everyday and I haveRead More no concern about him being bitten. All dogs have teeth, all dogs will bite. They don't have a hand to slap you when your doing something that makes him/her uncomfortable. Their ONLY defense is to bite if the growling didn't warn you to back off. I've been bitten by 4 different dogs in my profession and not one was a pitbull. I come in contact daily with all breeds (including pits) and have never met a mean one. Also the pits that are abused usually are the nicest because they want someone to love them.

A man is murdered and all you can say is wrong location?? Lansdowne mail runs out of the halethorpeRead More post office and so it is considered halethorpe as well as a few other locations.

Hopefully he gets deported back to Pakistan after he gets out of jail.
L.B. April 21, 2014 at 09:29 am
If the government does not deport him all AMERICANS should stand together and ask WHY?
Justin case April 21, 2014 at 10:33 am
He will be bitter at our government no matter how much time he spends in prison. Afterwards he getsRead More a free trip home to Pakistan so he can connect with more terrorist and perfect his art as a real terrorist that can and will inflict harm to all Americans.

I still have far less trepidation going to OC than downtown Baltimore City. In fact I won't even goRead More into the city for a ball game anymore. I'm not sure what the website means by "property crime" means but I suspect it is not as bad as violent crime upon my person.

So if any copycats didn't know where any other Jewish centers were, they do now. The media ALWAYSRead More gives out way too much information. They do most of the research for any suspected terrorist who just happens to watch the news or read/listen to it. They are always giving addresses and telling the terrorist where the security cameras are located or if a particular building is low on security.

I left my convertible top down once. Went inside to pay for the gas and when I returned there was aRead More blob of bubble gum on the floor. I would have put my foot on it and made a real mess if I had not seen it. I had noticed a dad showing his son how to pump gas when I went in and I had noticed the kid chewing something. Morons!!!!!
Dennis Gilpin April 15, 2014 at 05:33 pm
Many women pull up to get gas and leave their purse on the front seat when they are paying for theRead More gas or getting cigarettes. Easy pickings for the thieves to reach in the car and take it. In spring, many people don't use their heat or air conditioning and just leave their windows down. Thieves are very aware of this.

But we can get stoned now, makes perfect sense !! You could always just drive like responsibleRead More people and keep your speed safe, there are thousands of people missing limbs or worse wishing they never were involved in a crash by either there own fault or the result of some balloon knot, Thanks for keeping us safe officers

Apparently, the man's family were left standing on the curb with one of the reporters, but wouldn'tRead More talk about it. 'Don't know if they were in the vehicle during the shooting, Moral: Don't try to dodge the Feds. They have the firepower, and will use it.
Dennis Gilpin April 13, 2014 at 01:42 pm
Kind of understandable why the F.B.I. was involved. The vehicle had out of state tags and evidentlyRead More they must have been tailing him. After trying to make a run for it the situation could have ended up far worse if it turned into a high speed chase.
Chuck Burton April 13, 2014 at 03:15 pm
The man's family was present, and with a TV reporter afterward, though they wouldn't comment. TheyRead More were not apparently detained by the FBI. Were they in the vehicle when the agents opened fire? Lucky they weren't hit, if so. Lucky no one else was hit in the area, which is often very busy. FBI needs to open up about why they fired under such conditions. Was the victim a clear and present danger to anyone else? If not, they should have held fire and pinned him with their vehicles to make an arrest.

This is a terrible tragedy but I don't consider Bethesda as a Baltimore suburb but a WashingtonRead More suburb. Why should this story get a mention on this site ?

Catch him and do the same as he did to his family. This was such a heinous crime. Who could killRead More your own mother, children and the mother of your children? A no good demon!

Find him and fry him. He should die regardless of his age. Italy probably won't help because of theRead More Amanda Knox case. I say govt should put a hit on him.

He probably retired from the state department under an alias. They didn't even notice he was missingRead More for an entire week so I'm sure they wouldn't notice if he came back to work as Juan Rodriguez or some other alias. Bunch of idiots.

Thor the floppy-eared puppy is back home with his fam, police say.
Noreen Dalisera April 3, 2014 at 05:15 pm
I am glad he is back home safe:)
Steven Spiegel April 3, 2014 at 10:02 pm
Thank god Thor was returned unharmed . To the people who said that they should be charged withRead More kidnapping don't feel bad if you keep up with the articles in patch they only gave the guy who molested the kids he was watching $25.000 bail these guys are only $5000 dollars less on there bail . I believe that the bail should have been much higher on both cases !!!! With $25.000 dollar bail you can get out with 1% which is $250 dollars and then pay them every week that way the prisoners can get out and steal and molest some more before going back to jail . I believe if a prisoner gets out and commits a crime when they are put out on such a low bail for such horrendous crimes the damn Commissioner who gives the jerks that low of a bail should get the same sentence and sit there ass right next to them in jail!!!!!!!!!!!
Marcus Aurelius April 7, 2014 at 07:18 am
There is not one reason this crime is not the same as kidnapping a human, 10 years, no parole, hardRead More labor is what is the proper sentence, but in Maryland they can go to jail get a bushel crabs a couple steaks, 12 beers, blow a joint or two, get laid and sleep in, that is the democrat prison system from Owemalley and Brown of course our next criminal Governor
