Admittedly, Donald Jeffrey Roberts Jr. was speeding a little when he was pulled over by a state trooper with his pregnant girlfriend and baby inside his vehicle early Sunday morning in Spring Garden Township. Full Story

or babies!!! The cops gave the dude a break. Never is anyone arrested for going 5 miles over the speed limit. Gimme a break, as he sure got one, but is still cryin' the blues. Hang his a$$! Not the first time he pulled this $hit!!!

Now, about the YDR/Sunday News or the Dispatch/(Hanover)Evening Sun, well where do I start? The "usual suspects" journalist wannabees like Evans, Hoover, Argento, and Lee are NOT professionals. They hate criticism and hide their "agendas" behind "pieces" that are loaded with gaffs, mistakes, rushes to judgment, political comment and garbage. They "hide" behind the 1st Amendment which they "twist" and "spin" into a fabric of shame. The editors, publishers and owners let them get away with it because of a "care less" attitude. The problem is that real professionals must have licenses and if they make mistakes their are boards that can mete out punishment or even loss of the ability given by the license (real estate people, barbers, lawyers, doctors even funeral directors and more). Indeed, for those careers mentioned herein you need proven education and sucessful test completion...even yearly training. If, however, you wannabee a "journalist" you do not need an education, nor pass a test, nor get a license. All you need to do is look in the mirror and say "I'm a journalist" and puuuffff you are. Sadly, it is the same mirror that most look into for their "sources" for "investigative" journalism. Even more sad, for us AND the 1st Amendment, the law foolishly allows lying, cheating and more realtive to the "sources" issue. Look, I believe is protecting sources, but I think that JUDGES should make the decision. Anyway, unless and until people DEMAND good reporting, all we will continue to get from OUR newspapers is the kind we have received. Fortunately, the YDR, Dispatch, Sunday News and the Evening Sun make excellent: fish wrapping paper, bird cage liner, fireplace log starter, coffee grinds wrappper, and more. Perhaps you might like to buy my next book "Journalism for Dummies or What Dd I do with the newspapers I can't sell/Now even I am a journalist."
But Slander and defamtion of character is a crime so it doesnt matter if they hide behind the first amendment. if you dont like the newpaper dont read it

Not all district magistrates are elected to begin with. DJ Linda Williams was appointed by Mayor do nothing Brenner. Another thing I fail to understand is why they allow former cops and DA's to become judges or districts magistrates. How can they be objective when they believe all the lies that the police tell.

Stupid Post Of The Day award. You care to cite examples of lies that were told in court? I guess they should only allow defense attorneys to become magistrates, since we know they NEVER lie.

F*ck off; a ring on your finger doesn't constitute how good of a parent you are. It's none of your damn business whether they're married or not, and it is of no relevance to the story. You don't magically become a better parent just because you have a piece of paper stating you're married .

Sounds like speeding over and over and over. No inspection. Expired for practacally a year. Why does this clown even have a licence. A menace on the road. I hope they fine him enough that he learns his lesson. Congratulations on the great job officer friendly
I know the speeder and he is a compulsive liar. His car went out of inspection 4/09. He is a jerk and doesn't deserve compasion from anyone. I have no doubt in my mind he was racing and he has other offenses in maryland including speeding and a dui. He also has a court date coming up in feb. for trying to drive away while holding onto his girlfriend while she was outside of the vehicle. He is actually a bad person/monster. If only you knew Donald a.k.a. donnie.

""I was speeding a little bit but not excessively," Roberts said."
"Roberts maintains he would not put his girlfriend or daughter in harm's way."
"Roberts believes state police may have mistaken him with another car that was with another group of drivers who were speeding ahead of him. "I'm just saying," Roberts said"
Once again the "oh I'm a victim... MAN up to your faults & stop blaming the rest of the world for your failures, I'm sure we'll see you in the news agaiN WHAT WILL BE YOUR EXCUSE THAT TIME ?
