The catonsville case is not what the police thought. it's obvious that the two boys were in on the whole thing.These boys are criminals and to issue an amber alert for them was a joke. The whole case stinks to high heaven of a drug family operation gone wrong. In New York if it was a real drug revenge kidnapping those boys would have been found dead.The police should seize the house and charge the family with wasting the police forces time. I hope obams can fix this type of thing if he becomes president.

If two of my nephews were taken away at gun point and people were there to witness it, those folks had better be cooperative with the investigators. They had better told the police all of the information they had to help find my family members. Seems like that wasn't the case. What a shame if that is true. That house neeeds to be tore down if that's the case. Also, if it is a known fact that all of this is true, please do not allow the media to get wind of it. It is a real waste of time to try and help a family that is so clueless to what values are all about!!

I am so ashamed of this time. I grew up here, attended the public school system. Some blacks like me feel that all of this gang nonsense will not stop until a Blood kills someone in the White Community.
The parents also have to be looked up. A lot of parents think it's cool for their children to live the gang life. it's really sad.

What will killing someone in the White Community change? By that statement, you're admiting it's Blacks killing other Blacks. There's the long awaited admission that if said said by a White guy, would have him castrated. How about this for a change....Try helping yourselves instead of always relying on some form of the government to do things for you. Oh but wait, then you wouldnt be able to play the blame game and cry victim of society anymore.

The boys were kidnapped for ransom... hello???!!! How is that a waste of time??!!! The extensive media coverage and police search made the kidnappers realize they couldn't get away with it. And Capitol murder on top of kidnapping makes you eligible for the death penalty..even if it is "two little thugs with records" as people think. They were returned safely... Get a grip! They DID tell the police what happened. But police were a little preoccupied searching, questioning, seizing, harassing, arresting , etc. the family members. If it was not a black family...the VICTIMS would NOT have been searched and had their cars towed for "evidence". The family was "uncooperative" because police were treating them like criminals and not allowing them to go look for their loved ones. If they had issued the amber alert in the first few minutes...rather than six HOURS later, maybe it wouldn't have taken four days to find them. I thank my God that their lives were spared, even though to most of you theirs don't matter. Somehow because they smoke weed and had an assault charge at age SIX!!! Their lives are worth less than yours, and your perfect kids...

I hope this is a wake up call for these two young men. It's not too late for them to change their lives, as it is for their father, and probably their older brother who is in jail. These young men have their whole lives in front of them and can do anything they set their minds to do. Despite what they think, there are people who want to help them. People grow up to become who their parents are. Unfortunately, there is only a small percentage of individuals are are strong enough to break out of the cycle and succeed in life. These guys are really fortunate to be alive today.

The same story over and over again. Treated as "thugs" poor little drug dealers. Would not have happened unless there was blatant drug and gang activity. Large sums of money and luxury vehicles. How can you have that when no one in the family has a job? Think about.

Victims or Victimizers.

Baltimore looks better when portayed by HBO. Bodymore is an open sore.
