Hey Idiot - I am not hounding the kid, as you refer to him. Your defense is not as strong now is it? Or do you think it's okay that "the kid" is in jail for trying to carjack a 78 year old man?

"Police say a 78-year-old man from College Park was locking his car in a mall parking lot near Bloomingdale’s department store, when a suspect, described as a white male aged 20-25, about 5 feet, 9 inches tall... McKenzie-Gude, 18 years of age, who stands 5-foot 5-inches.."

Yeah.. they definitely sound like the same person... something else they can pin on him.. your pathetic.. "lets hope this kid rots in jail".. do you always hope the worst?

Are you sure you graduated? Your thought process seems to be so illogical or maybe you flunked reading comprehension. Or do you merely hunt for the version of the news that bests suits your skewed logic? Well, here are excerpts from the latest on your innocent young man:

Detectives from the Montgomery County Police Major Crimes Division - Robbery Section have charged Collin Matthew McKenzie-Gude, age 18, of the 6300 block of Rockhurst Road in Bethesda, with the attempted carjacking that occurred in the parking lot of the White Flint Mall in Kensington on Tuesday morning, July 29.
The description of the suspect and evidence that was recovered at the scene led investigators to develop McKenzie-Gude, as the suspect in the attempted carjacking. On August 3, detectives obtained an arrest warrant for McKenizie-Gude, charging him with attempted carjacking and second-degree assault. That warrant was served tonight at the Montgomery County Detention Center, where McKenzie-Gude is currently being held....

The teenager in custody after firearms and chemicals were found in his Bethesda home allegedly had two fake government IDs and a map of a presidential motorcade.

Prosecutors say 18-year-old Colin McKenzie-Gude had identification that made it look like he was a CIA employee. The second fake ID identified him as Michael Landry, a U.S. contractor with protections from the Geneva Conventions.

McKenzie-Gude also had a map of Camp David with a presidential motorcade route, according to prosecutors.

Montgomery County State's Attorney John McCarthy says the CIA, FBI and Secret Service are investigating.

McKenzie-Gude has been charged with five counts of possession of a firearm or ammunition by a minor, possession of a destructive device, and possession of explosive material.

He has also been accused of an attempted carjacking. Police say the teenager tried to steal a car from a man at the White Flint Mall shortly before his home was searched.

Police say along with guns and explosive materials, the teen had a list of names and addresses of his former teachers at St. Johns College High School.

Steven Kupferberg, McKenzie-Gude's attorney, says his client had no intention of harming anyone.

A warrant had been issued for McKenzie-Gude's arrest after police searched his home on Rockhurst Road and seized five illegally possessed assault rifles, a handgun and ammunition on Tuesday afternoon.

Police also found chemicals and materials used to make homemade explosives.

McKenzie-Gude is a 2008 graduate of St. John's College High School in Northwest.

It is illegal for anyone under the age of 21 to possess certain firearms in Maryland.

Police say Colin's father, 62-year-old Joseph Lane Gude, bought the firearms for his son. He also faces charges.

IF YOU THINK HE'S A NICE KID, THEN THAT SAYS WHAT KIND OF VALUE SYSTEM YOU HAVE!!!

Right ON, GL Rockwell!

Homeland Security and ALL the media paranoia is a TOTAL WASTE. Just how many "real terrorists" has Homeland Security captured by taking away your toenail clippers? Just how many times have you run for cover because CNN, NBC and all the rest of the news fools have reported "TERROR IN THE STREETS - POSSIBLE ANTHRAX ATTACK" when somebody just tipped over a bag of wheat flour at the local Safeway Food Store? Just when is our HEIL-BUSH government going to report accurate stats on the number of terrorists captures, the number of Zip-Lock bags ruptured due to a 3.5 ounce shampoo explosion, the number of REAL criminals with razorblades found in shoes sent thru aiport x-rays machines and the number of towel-headed bozos arrested on airlines in flight because they had a match in the front of their gym shoes?

All this stuff is US Government paranoia designed just to CONTROL YOU not prevent terrorists. Where's the real fire? That Assh--e Bin Laden has been laden with so many people looking for him that he can't fart without a satellite signal pickup.

The kid with these explosives is just another stupid teenager who is misguided and, more than usual, "out there." But he's influenced by the MEDIA, the GOVERNMENT, and all the reports, MOVIES, TV sitcoms, HBO serials, and music to act the way he does. Had the US Congress...now there's a synonym for "do nothing, collect salary"...impeached GEORGE BUSH JR. as they should have after all the lies and deceit and removed him from office, no one in the general population - this misguided and unfortunate kid included - would feel like they need to fantasize about doing it themselves.

Liz..

As I can see you hunt for articles that fit your argument also, obviously this is going nowhere. I'm simply defending my friend. If he's guilty.. he's guilty but talk to me when the investigation is over and there's a final verdict. In the meantime if I were you... I would find something better to do instead of trying to start fights on news blogs.

You continue to show your immaturity AND your lack of logic. You can't discuss issues logically so you resort to other tactics. So we will agree to disagree. Retrieve your pacifier. I can understand why that young man is your friend.

LOL... I know my Mom would yell at me for teasing the retarded, but I have to ask... HOW, pray tell, does the govt "control" me? What right has been taken away from any law abiding citizen, ever, since 9/11? No nutter has been able to point to ONE SINGLE example of a right they've lost or that anyone they know has lost.

Secondly, security measures act as a deterrent.

Why do I bother? LOL

As a teenage firearms enthusiast who has to repeatedly explain and defend my hobby to ignorant and condescending adults, I completely sympathize with this guy. Maybe storing/ setting off explosives wasn't the wisest or most responsible thing he could have done, and stealing a car from a 78 year old definitely isn't a good display of self control, but honestly these are the only two things I see that he did wrong. The whole thing about the "Obama assassination plot" in my mind is just pure media hype/sensationalism, as others have pointed out. This kid was guilty in the eyes of the public the second the liberal propaganda machine got ahold of his story... He had no chance

Why don't the cops in Mont. Co round up the freshly imported illegals here in Mont. Co?
But they go after teens instead?
