It's obvious that there is no shortage of criminal types in the area.

What the f*ck people?!?!?
Silver Spring was once a beautiful area, safe and free of crime. The city pumps MILLIONS into the downtown area, makes it really nice, and still you freaking pieces of sh*t turn it into a slum!

That club has a history of crime and violence. The problem is a combination of the patrons and management. Regardless of the race of the patrons (and the criminal element therein), the county needs to step in and revoke their business and alcohol permits.
Silver Spring has had pockets of violent, crime-ridden areas for years. This is only one small problem spot. I can guarantee that after this incident, police will be focusing targeted enforcement in that area. The criminal club patrons need to stay in DC and PG County where they belong, or suffer the consequences. Natural selection in progress once again ...

Clubs, government centers, churchs and family style homes used to be quite safe. Carnegie Mellon University is currently doing a study on the "reasons why moral standards change and how crime leaks into the good areas" and when the article or book is published, I would like to buy the book and get some for my family members too. Carnegie Mellon has a penchant for doing good research on import topics and publishing good articles and books.

When I was a kid, Silver Spring was quite good. It was even good when my youngest granddaughter was born which was far recent. Within the last three years, Silver Spring has gotten like the streets of D.C. and I am serious. Last week, I was sitting down with one of my granddaughs in the Panera Bread cafe near the intersection of Georgia Avenue and Colesville Road and I notice sirens going up and down the roads constantly. The good thing is that the cops are doing a good job in "cleaning house" and when I mentioned this to my little girl, she said the words "A-Men". During the time when school was cut short due to the water problems, I took my grandchildren to places that still have water working so that I can buy them lunch. After lunch, I took them to the movie theatre to see a cartoon film. I really enjoyed being with my family because my family are first and foremost in everything.

Parents and Grandparents like this are what make communities great. The thing that turns them bad is when the parents don't go out with the kids anymore.

I remember getting stuck in front of Panera a few months ago. I was enjoying a beautiful summer afternoon until a group of kids yelling profanities back and forth across Colesville... they weren't arguing, they were just talking... F-this, F-that, N-word this, N-word that.

At the same time, I see a mother and her 4 year old son only 5 feet away looking very uncomfortable at these cursing 14 year old kids.

That's the tipping point when neighborhoods start to change for the worse. i hope it was just me...

It happens in Mont county and its the crime of the century and a personal afront to humanity. ANYWHERE else and its to be expected. Crime is everywhere idiots. Criminals could care less about jurisdictional boundaries.

That Is so sad. Seriously. I live in uhm, Silver spring, MD so like when i heard about that, i said, dam.. its like silver spring isnt even safe no more. also, that kid who died, seemed like a nice kid due to what everyone said about him. I wish people were so stupid for once and notice that violence isnt the answer. I understand if u get into a argument but it doesnt seem smart to just pull out a gun and start shooting. but wait, R.I.P Tai, even if i never knew you but.. it wasnt fair for what that person did to you. hmph, + it happened on the ride-on bus, so that gives me a warning to steer clear of what happens by not taking the bus. i will only take the bus if i want to go to a friends house, party etc. but other than that. NO THANKS.

Hey idiots ... this is NOT about the kid shot and killed on the bus in Silver Spring this week ... it's about the donkey that was gunned down at a problematic black bar in the spring/summer. Get off the Internet and get back to your homework.

Both the Ride On shooting and this one are excellent examples of the gang activity in the area. Let 'em kill each other, I say. Maybe we could round all of the gang members up and let them have it out in that construction zone at Fenton Ellsworth. F them all.

And hatred is what fuels the criminals I hope you realize...

I certainly don't like some of the things that these people do, but I love the people themselves

Actually... stupidity, drugs, guns and poor parenting fuels the criminals.
