  • the truth

    Call me racist but this is how all too often Blacks handle their disputes, with guns & violence.

  • Pro Death Penalty

    Crime is down in Maryland??????. Everyday another murder occurs. When will it stop? Never, as long as the liberals fight the death penalty. Conviction, appeal and then death. Don’t wait years to carry out. Very swift justice.
