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.

I own the most docile pibble in the entire world. He was a rescue from neglect, not abuse. Had heRead More gone to a dog fighting owner, he would have been the bait dog. However, I would NOT leave my 2 year old alone with ANY dog. I'm very sorry the little one was hurt. Two yos don't know enough not to pull ears, tail, bite, stick their fingers in the dog's eyes, etc. The parents of the 2 yo should feel responsible for what happened, because they ARE. My pibble brings smiles to everyone's face because he's so friendly and goofy looking. I have a hard time getting out of PetCo and such because everyone is showing him attention. All except the ignorant who believe everything the media spouts out. They take one look, about face and head the other way. I just LOL at them, making sure they know it. I was terrorized by a German Shepherd when I was a young teen. Though I was very cautious around them for awhile, I sure never and don't hate them and malign them for no good reason. Oh, and good comment, Vamp. It's true.

I had an elderly lady get on her knees as best she could, just to play with and pet my pitbull. AtRead More least 3-5 minutes worth. All fun for both of them, until she raised up and asked what breed my dog was. As soon as I said "pitbull" suddenly you would've thought I was letting her play with a grenade. Immediately she hated the dog she was all lovey dovey with just seconds before. Brainwashed society is the reason they have a bad name.

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.
userbronco April 24, 2014 at 07:49 am
Oh and wHen the revenue collection officer asks to search your. Vehicle , " I don't consent toRead More searches " is what you need to practice saying . If you have something obviously illegal in plain sight they can seach. Otherwise you have to give Them permission. Which they need or they wouldn't be ASKING. They'd be telling you they're gonna search . When you refuse them permission they will huff and puff and threaten to call in the drug dog. Blah blah.blah Bring it on steroid head . Then you say "am I under arrest or am I free to go?".
Pam Hamburg April 24, 2014 at 09:28 am
userbronco, you are 110% right. They have NO right to search your vehicle. Of course, they areRead More allowed to peer through the glass to see what they can see, but without a suspicion or proof, they have no right searching your glove compartment, trunk, etc. Yes, say 'am I being detained or am I free to go'? Also, don't roll your window down all the way...you don't have to. About 4 or 5 inches suffices. Stand firm with that one. Be polite, but be firm. Be quiet except when asked a question, then use good judgment in answering. Keep saying 'am I being detained or am I free to go'? Holding court on the side of the road is not a good idea. If they persist in asking you if they can search your vehicle, politely tell them they will have to get a warrant. At all times, be courteous, but FIRM. Know your rights!
userbronco April 24, 2014 at 10:47 am
It's a touchy situation. You want to be as unrememberable as possible to the cop. So when orRead More if you go to court all he wilremember is what he reads in his notebook. That you can request to see by by the way You want to be unrememberable , don't say anything, unless they ask you a question , then use short answers , yes or no will usually suffice, be polite but don't say "sir" a thousand times. I don't say it at all. Make it look like your kissing up . I personally treat cops like I would treat a rattlesnake 96% of the people who are bitten by a rattlesnake are harassing the snake at the time Keep an eye out for them. And don't harass them. You WILL lose any contest with a cop. Even if it's a ego contest on the side of the road . Extra cops are only seconds away and they will beat you up or kill you in a flash if you tick em off Plenty if dash cam and cell phone video to prove it They are kinda like dogs, some are really smart, some are really dumb, but all of em are dangerous in groups or if they feel threatened or if they sense fear in you. Or if they think their getting an easy meal

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.

Justin case April 11, 2014 at 11:15 am
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. The FBI must finally be sick of this guy embarrassing them for 38 years

Did they really think that they wouldn't get caught "working" in the same general area ?Read More Baltimore county police are very aggressive in solving these type of crimes as it could easily escalate into someone getting killed. A clerk trying to protect their employers interests or an innocent bystander.
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

Mark I drove over the road for a few years and I once got a load of Harley's from Wisconsin going toRead More Texas anyway I had to sign a document saying that if I was 25 miles out of the range of my scheduled route that the FBI will be contacted and start tracking the vehicle. Plus the company that I drove for had a Quail com in the truck and could tell me were I was at within so many feet at any given time . I wonder why this company didn't have this . And this was 2007 when I last drove.
Dennis Gilpin March 31, 2014 at 11:14 pm
Steven, It probably did but like the plane " lost" over the Indian ocean if someone hasRead More an agenda and the ability to shut down any tracking device all this is useless. That kind of money will cause thieves to work overtime to eliminate any possibility of getting caught. That load can be sitting anywhere waiting to cool down and find a buyer.

Steven Spiegel March 28, 2014 at 12:12 pm
People are ruthless on the road these days. I don't understand what could go wrong going down theRead More road so bad that it would make someone want to kill someone. I have been in accidents were people have rear ended me and it didn't get me mad enough to want to kill them. I hope that they find this guy and prosecute him to the fullest . I just lost my father to cancer on New years eve and he was 84 and it hurt so bad . I could not imagine having my son murdered it would kill me !!! I hope that the family will heal soon but it takes time and I am sure the healing process would be greatly accelerated if they found those who were responsible .
