Throw away the key. Catonsville doesn't need scum like this.

Wait a minute. I thought all the speed cameras were going to free up police officers in order to allow them to prevent this kind of thing from happening. I guess we were duped! Ha ha! Or maybe we need MORE speed cameras!

Wonderful news ! Please keep us informed as to trial dates etc...@Mike Smith, Amen !

More of the reverse evolution crowd moving in the wrong direction of civility.

There were hundreds of people walking up S. Rolling after the fireworks, as they do each year. Walking in the middle of S. Rolling blocking traffic, and on the side (no sidewalks) around cars. Cars trying to get out of Newburg, Forest Lane and Glenrae, into the crowd and tempers flaring. It is always a disaster and the only police officer we saw was ONE directing traffic the best he could at Bloomsbury Ave at the light. We saw a lot of awful behavior this year. Very disappointing after what was a pretty fun fireworks show. My family walked past the spot of the incident mere minutes before, it's very upsetting. I hope the victim is recovering and these three are severly punished for their actions.

More speed cameras wont prevent people from getting stabbed. And police simply cannot be everywhere at once, so people will continue to get stabbed. Blaming the police is silly.
John August 22, 2012 at 12:42 PM
Hate to break it to you, but Catonsville already has plenty of scum like this
number9dream August 22, 2012 at 01:12 PM
Hey John, Chill out and look up "sarcasm" in the dictionary.
Mike Smith August 22, 2012 at 01:13 PM
Yes there is plenty of scum like this. That's why they should be removed from society. You can't teach thugs and ignorant people to respect others do just lock them up for the rest of their lives and everyone else will be happy. That's why we should have more speed cameras. Then use the income from them to build more prisons and really start cleaning up the area. Decent people don't go stabbing people because somebody was rude to them. Only sub humans do such things.

Gee, they're black.
Dean Tippett August 22, 2012 at 02:23 PM
How about an update on the victim who was stabbed. Is he home and recovered yet?
Joe August 22, 2012 at 02:28 PM
He is fine last I heard.
J August 22, 2012 at 03:02 PM
Racism us alive and very well in Catonsville I see. Why make a race issue out of a crime? When White people stab Black people is it okay with Whites? It's NOT okay w Blacks either! Your comments perpetuate bigotry and incite further incidents of hate! Back down and offer solutions...

When we read stories almost daily like this one "Chicago Thugs Kill Disabled Father in ‘Knock-Out Game’ – Post Video on Facebook" or this "Pat Mahaney was walking home Saturday with a six-pack of beer, looking forward to a quiet evening watching sports, when something hit him in the back of the head. “The next thing I knew I woke up on my neighbor’s front step and the life squad was there,” the 45-year-old North College Hill resident said Wednesday. Six teenagers “were just bored and were looking for something to do,” a police report said, when they ambushed Mahaney as he turned off Simpson Avenue onto Dallas Avenue. He was immediately knocked unconscious." or "Knockout King: The sickening 'game' claiming lives across the country as youths beat up the vulnerable 'for attention'" it IS a racial issue. Blacks randomly attacking whites for fun and because they were "bored". Which is more racist? Picking out white people and killing them for fun and games or people saying words you may not like?
Joe August 22, 2012 at 03:20 PM
The solution? Stop having babies then abandoning them to grow up fatherless. BE A MAN and take responsibility for your children. Ask these 3 reverse evolving critters what relationship they had with their fathers!
Chief August 22, 2012 at 03:22 PM
When someone makes a true statement e.g "they're black" that makes them a racist? So, saying "they're male" makes one a sexist? Or "They're old" makes one a ageist? Facts are facts !!!

Many on the left think if they do not see these stories on MSNBC or CNN then this does not even exist. See voter fraud for proof. The left media does not cover that so they believe it does not exist even in the face of hundreds of convictions.

Hey J! What is going on in your community? "RICHMOND, Va. -- Police were searching today for a group of about 15 young men believed to have committed an assault and a violent robbery in rapid succession on Virginia Commonwealth University's main academic campus in downtown Richmond. Neither victim was seriously injured in the two attacks, which occurred along Shafer Street on the Monroe Park campus about 2:55 a.m. VCU and Richmond police described the assailants as a group of 15 black males between the ages of 17 and 22. The first victim, who is not a VCU student, reported being punched without provocation by a member of the group while getting out of a vehicle at Shafer and West Grace streets. Moments later, the group encountered the second victim, a VCU student, at Shafer and West Franklin streets. The student told police one member of the group made a comment about his boots before the victim was punched in the back of the head and knocked to the ground. Once on the ground, the victim was told by one of the assailants, "Give me everything you've got." The victim was punched again in the neck and a pack of cigarettes was stolen from his pants pocket, police said. The assailants were last seen heading south through Shafer Court." http://www2.timesdispatch.com/news/news/2012/aug/22/4/group-commits-assault-violent-robbery-vcus-main-ca-ar-2147611/ Reverse evolution must be in effect.

Solutions? Eugenics.
Mike Smith August 22, 2012 at 04:55 PM
The answer is stricter enforcement of laws, harsher penalties and more prisons. It very simple be good or go to jail. Prison should be punitive and miserable. No parole no home detention. You serve your time with no creature comforts. Just a bed a toilet and that's it. No entertainment no education just serving your time.
Mike Hunt August 23, 2012 at 01:21 PM
Blame the Republicans and the Mormans!!! NO Blame the coloreds again. NO Blame the Native Americans We stole the Country From. NO Blame the Mexicans who by the way are the HARDEST working people on EARTH!!!

Catonsville use to be and still is a decent place to live and family oriented. We people that live there and try to keep it that way are, unfortunately, losing a battle in some areas of Catonsville because of complete ignorance and a lack of self-control and common decency on the part of certain people. BUT that is the case with any area these days, there are too many people raising children on the “fend for yourself and care about no one else” bandwagon and that is what society is coming to. Personally in my neighborhood in Catonsville we can still wave to anyone on the street and get a return wave, sit on our porch and enjoy the weather while making small talk with our neighbors and let the neighborhood kids play in our backyard with our son because we feel that security and love that anyone should feel. Don’t generalize “Catonsville” into one big group because some parts of Woodlawn are considered “Catonsville” and it is NOT anything like the Catonsville we know.

So Joe, is it also reverse evolution when an emo white person shoots up a school, movie theater, or store? Would you be offended if someone posted 'Shocker, he's white' when the Perry Hall shooting occurred? Funny thing is, I NEVER see the 'They should be put down', thinly-veiled wild animal references and 'Sub-human scum' comments when the perpetrator is white. What I do see is that it's usually described as 'a tragedy, both for the victims and the perpetrator...we should have been able to help this poor, lost soul, and maybe he wouldn't have senselessly killed all of those people'...or some other excuse. I guess that's also the liberal media with their liberal slantiness. Yes. I do know 'slantiness' is not an actual word, but you get the point. Truth is, you can find proof that horrible sectors of all races exist, yet you seem to be fixated on only one...but you're not a racist? Interesting. Did you delve into the archives to find the article about the White young men that brutally beat a Balt. City retiree while he was fishing simply because he was Black? For every 'because they were bored' Black crime, there is an equally bad White crime that is just as senseless...or are you conveniently forgetting the housing development in Southern MD. that was substantially burned to the ground while still under construction, so that the perspective Black families wouldn't be able to live there? Crime exists within all races; stop acting like one race has a monopoly on it.

These 3 criminals should have jail time not just a PBJ. Who tries to kill someone just because of a verbal altercation. I wonder what kind of upbringing these 3 had. Apparently they were never taught to just walk away when someone says something they don't like. People that act like this need professional mental and anger management counseling.

OMG; times HAS changed! Not the Catonsville that I remember growing up in. Use to be THE place to live! My family is still in Catonsville. Sorry to say but I'm afraid to walk ANYWHERE there when I come back to visit. CLEAN IT UP!!!!! Donnie
