For those who have no "hood" friends. Let's make this clear. These Glover Park boys (not neccessarily the teens, but definitely the brother) were involved in some serious drug business. And for those who don't know,drug related kidnappings happen in the Baltimore area more often than most think. According to the streets, they have been ransomed for $1 mill. but who knows if the family really has that to pay for their safe return. And based on some previous incidents, paying ransom does not mean the boys won't be harmed. Regardless of the surrounding circumstances, I pray that those boys return home safely. Hopefully, this will serve as a wake-up call to those who are selling drugs or contemplating that lifestyle. These are the consequences of those types of actions.

The above report indicates that the ages of the individuals are 16 and 17, however, the report by Jim Handley on TV news at 5:00PM indicated 15 and 16. Which is it? If there is a descrepancy here, what other descrepancies in NBC4's reporting are there?

I know Sterling Blackwell. He attended my school. He's not the type to get mixed up in this kind of thing. Both he and his brother are very good kids, and we all pray that they will return home safely. You, not knowing Sterling, should be ashamed of yourself for writing what you did in the above quote.

As a Mom, I know my daughter. Not only is she a very caring person, she is also very smart, as par the extremely high scores on her MSA. I feel it is unfair to judge the boys upon what has been said here. What do you know about these teenagers? Nothing, I'm guessing. People don't know who these boys are by nature, and they are good at heart. This is coming from myself and my daughter.
If for some reason, God forbid, this happened to your family, you wouldn't want people judging your children. All you would want would be for your children, who you brought into this world, not to be taken out of it.
In addition, if the family is viewing this, I want to grant them our prayers. We would like them to know how deeply we feel for them, adn we wish their boys a safe return home, and the family a quick recovery.

First, I would like to agree that we shouldn't judge people that we don't know, but when I heard about this story on the radio I was intrigued by it and wanted to learn more. I learned that both the boys had been arrested for multiple charges so obviously they are the sort of people to become involved with trouble. Also, alot of news stations said that their getaway car was a 2004 BMW 645 convertible that belonged to someone in the house, but if that was the case then what did the kidnappers come in? And if you have never seen that type of car, let me tell you that it comfortably seats four people, not eight. It was only till much later that I found out there was also a gray SUV that the kidnappers used.

does somebody owe some drug money in this case? Why in the world would a bunch of weirdos risk kidnapping charges for drug money? Is it something else? This shows the lack of respect the law gets when a community is too scared or too much into supporting crime. Only by people sticking together and trying to stop such nonsense can inroads be made in what promises to be a massive increase in criminal behaviors as the economy worsens and only drug dealers and other riffraff will posper. Hanging is too good for these types of crimes...waterboarding anyone?
