I would take her child from her give her supervised visitation and then make sure she gets fixed toRead More were she can bare no more !!! The sad thing is the woman probably don't care to much about anything but herself and the one who will suffer and grieve will be the small child . I feel sorry for the child !!! I hope that he feels loved because I was a child who had hard working parents who were never home and I was raised by my sisters who were 8 and 9 years older then me and was looked at back then as a blocker from them doing what they wanted to do . I was filled with vodka and drugs by my one sister so I would be knocked out so they could bring there boyfriends in and I would not know what happened and I always felt that no one loved me it was a bad feeling . I can only imagine what this poor kid is going thru if they took him away from his Mom . Its hard on little ones that don't realize what's going on .

Hello Katherine Glaser -- are you like ten years old or something? My religious affiliation isn'tRead More the issue. I'm a taxpayer and I already pay my fair share. We already have enough freeloaders in this country and don't need any more. I really don't want any of these kids staying in this country and want them sent back. I don't want to pay for they're heath care or food or place to live. Maybe you could fund all of that if they stay......

Katherine Maybe we should all pack up and leave for what our for what our ancestors did to thoseRead More people (Not) . We fought for what we have and that may be sad but its true . Its now called the United States of America !!! If anyone is so horrified what there ancestors did and think that we should allow everyone to live here also maybe you should find out were your familys country of origin is and move back there !!!!! This is our country know . And its called survival of the fittest we have acted this way since man was on the earth !!!!! If this country is going to survive we have to forget about these people get them out of here pick up the pieces when they are gone and move on !!!!

But we need to regain the concept, as a society, of holding people responsible for their own actions. A train derailed in a place where it belonged that should have been unoccupied. The girls where occupying a place they didn't belong. As fate would have it, sadly, on that night it was the same place at the same time. I can't place fault with CSX.

Trespassing would be climbing the eight foot railroad fence---bagging the railroad security cameras,Read More hiding from the railroad lookout towers, and outrunning the two railroad cops in the state. There has to be deterrants not some sheriff going yap-yap-yap when the railroads pull his strings. Negligient homicide would be letting the track conditions to be DEADLY while paying company brass millions a year.
Pete Grosso July 17, 2014 at 10:24 pm
Trespassing would be being on tracks at any location other than a crossing or station platform,Read More which Ellicott City is not. If they had been under the bridge walking on public sidewalks and the train derailed, killing them, then no that's negligence on the Railroad. But walking out onto a narrow bridge, where a person has no business being, is trespassing and is negligent on the violator.

The Howard County Police Department is investigating a vehicle-bicycle collision that happened on Monday, July 14, 2014.
Steve July 15, 2014 at 11:17 am
Ursula's right--it's a dangerous stretch. Maryland law: "The driver of a vehicle must stop forRead More a pedestrian in a marked or unmarked crosswalk when: At crosswalks and intersections without signals: The pedestrian is on the half of the roadway on which the vehicle is traveling. The pedestrian is approaching within one lane of the half of the roadway on which the vehicle is traveling.(§ 21-502 (a)(2). But Ursula makes another good point: How many drivers would have peace of mind knowing they'd been at no technical or legal fault after maiming or killing a pedestrian or cyclist?

Cedar lane is not the best of places for parents to allow their children to ride their bikes.Read More Particularly during rush hour.

When will we all learn the basics? You have the right to remain silent. State so AND DO IT! If youRead More are detained, (ask if this is the case.

Don't worry. What's about to happen is that the parents of the thief are going to sue theRead More mall/security officers for chasing him and causing his death and be rewarded some ridiculous amount of millions of dollars then penalize security officers overall by not allowing them to chase thieves so that crime can go unpunished and in this case rewarded. Watch for the latest outcome on this as this is most likely the scenario that will take place.

Matthew Silverglate July 9, 2014 at 05:22 pm
Either way, this went to far and is wrong. What I don't get is why, if the kid was knocked out inRead More the first couple seconds, why they had to hold him down and near the end you can see his legs in the air, if he was knocked out they would be on the ground. Also looking at his body language I don't think he threw any Molotov cocktails but when he says he didn't throw rocks he touched his arm, his right arm and since he is right handed this is as psychology would lend to the idea that he is lying, Not to mention the fact that the reported didn't ask him if he threw rocks he said it out of no where... even if he did throw rocks, the police should not be able to do that to him and they need to be punished. I would like to know the full story though, Like lets see the video from the beginning, not half way through.....
