This makes me sick to my stomach that they are charging those two. Nothing happens to the idiots standind in the middle of the dark highway in the middle of the night. Last time this happened police charged the two racing, that should tell you something.

Im real sorry so many stupid idiots got run over but that sounds like they are total ignoramuses.

Hey ZED, theft under $500 is a bit different then murdering 7 people. You can get theft under $500 for piracy of music, whats your point mr high and mighty????

The kid was coming back from band practice for christs sake. give him a break.

true we don't know.. but i think driving at 110 mph (Baltimore Sun) warrants manslaughter. You just don't drive that fast--EVER.. Especially not at night, with your headlights off (baltimore sun).. So if you're doing it, and something goes wrong, well, guess who's at fault--YOU. I still stand by the fact that drag racing down a dark road at 110 mph with your headlights off FAR trumps the petty jaywalking that the people killed were doing. disagree?

No sir. That was the "original" story that he was picking up his brother from band practice. Now we know that was a lie and he was racing someone else and not aprt of the race that was going on. They didnt know there was another race going on but they were racing themselves not coming home from band practice. Ok, lets say they were on the way home from band practice, uh...the dudes license was suspended so he knew he shouldnt be driving in the 1st place. Cmon man. If you gonna blog, read the story 1st.

Thats so wrong. How are you gonna say that they got what they deserve when they didnt intentionally go out and plan to kill 8 people watching an ILLEGAL street race?! Are you serious? So if you're driving and you hit a few people, should you be charged with vehicular manslaughter, when you didnt do it intentionally? Thats something you need to think about!

While I think Jack Johnson is a piece of ****, and quite possibly a more corrupt executive than Marion Barry ever was, he is NOT the State's Attorney in PG county.. it's Glenn Ivey.
But in regards to the charges, I think the two drivers got what they deserved. Yes, the others were doing wrong, BUT they didn't kill anyone as a direct result of their wrongdoing. It's like I'm jaywalking, but you're racing down the road (let's say to a point where if you weren't you wouldn't hit me) but because of your speed you hit and kill me.. we're both wrong, but who's MORE wrong? Me walking across the street would never result in killing multiple people, while recklessly driving and racing is KNOWN to do so.

I totally agree with you. At least someone has a heart.

<quoted text> Totally agree with you. However, manslaughter is too much I think. If they are going to be charged with manslaughter, then everyone there should be charged with something. His license was suspended, so one could argue that if he wasn't driving then this would not have happened. We don't know if another car could have come down the road and did the same thing if he wasn't there. These people were standing in the middle of the road. I feel for their families but they had to know that they could be hit by a car if they are standing in the middle of a major highway.

He was such a good boy I wonder where things went wrong.
If all of what you listed is true, then that is a fairly good sized record. However, it has no relevance to the current issue at hand, as none of the charges involve vehicular codes, nor do they involve violence against another person (ie, the Manslaughter charge). There is no pattern present that would justify belief in him having been a prime candidate to run through a crowd of complete fools, gawking in the middle of a Highway, in the Middle of the Night no less.

As for this entire fiasco, this is nothing but an attempt by the Prosecutors to please the angry mob of street racers. Bottom line.

How is it possible that P.G. County States Attorney, Glenn Ivey, had "No Knowledge of Street racing in P.G. County"? Are you kidding? Wake up voters of P.G. County...elect officials that "care" and have "knowledge". There has been street racing in P.G. County since the 50's. Wake Up and Pay Attention. I'm a DC Metro resident of 52 years...Street Racing in P.G. County a surprise, my parents still talk about the street racing in P.G. County....Stop the Political Blindness.

Excellent point. His record would suggest a thief. Nothing of this tragic. Everybody was in the wrong in this instance but we can see a pattern of the suspect about to go another criminal path in life anyway. Not only was he out 2,3am, he was racing another person on a known drag strip with a suspended license with a passenger. If he would have had an accident, he could have killed the passenger. He may have graduated from thief either way that night. If you can remember the story a couple months ago about his step-father letting him use a truck that was stolen, you can see this young man does not have alot of positive role models in his life. I feel sorry for him because it's either that or he is actually stupid.
