    What is up with PG County??? Murders, Murders, Murders! So much for the theory of moving the poor out of the cities into “wealthy” suburbs as a way to make life better for the poor. What’? Ultra-liberals with the Dept of Social Services feel it’s better to be poor in the suburbs than poor in the city? Section-8 brings crime into the counties and destroys communities.
