Second Shooting Occurs in Columbia

Two shootings in Oakland Mills in one weekend. This area has become an unsafe place for our children and even the adults. We need to be careful when traveling at night, not just in Columbia, but everywhere. There are still people in Columbia that think it is the best place to live. There are gangs and too many people carrying weapons.  (May 18, 2008 | post #1)

Columbia man shot to death in Oakland Mills

There seems to be more crime happening in Columbia by the day. There have been helicopters hivering, sirens blazing and it is scarey. These crimes always happen at night while people are asleep. They are offering a $5000 reward to any information leading to an arrest in this case. If you know anything, please come forward.  (May 18, 2008 | post #1)

Police: 2 Teenagers Hurt In Accidental Shooting By Officer

So, now, we have a 62 year old woman in a senior apartment building shot in Columbia. Yes, she had a knife, but she was also mentally disturbed and not medicated. So you thought it was a good idea for the police officer to shoot her in the abdomen instead of using mace or even a tazer? I am not saying that all of the police are bad, but we need to have be able to trust our police officers and mistakes like these shouldn't happen. The police don't hesitate to use mace when trying to control a violent fight at the bars in Columbia with 10 or so people. That would seem a lot more threatening than a few teens gathered in a parking lot or a 62 year old elederly woman with menatl issues.  (May 3, 2008 | post #13)

Police: Woman Shot By Officer Lunged At Him With Knife - ...

The woman that was shot has mental issues and wasn't taking her medication like she should have. There were other ways that could have been used to take her down, like mace or a tazer. Many of the residents of the building are very upset about how the police handled the situation. This incident along with the officer mistakenly shooting two teens in Jessup a few weeks ago have gotten many Columbia residents worried about the police department and how they handle themselves on the street. Trigger happy is what a lot of them are saying. A 62 year old woman with mental issues being shot in a senior citizens apartment building. Perhaps the police are trained to shoot center mass, but we would hope that they would also use some common sense in these situations. Even speaking with some other officers in Howard County, they questioned the way that the incident was handled. I know a resident in that building and I got a bit of the inside scoop, so saying that it was very scarey for the residence is putting it mildly.  (May 3, 2008 | post #17)

Man Shot To Death In Columbia - News Story - WRC | Washin...

It looks like LOGICAL THINKING is possibly a police officer and a bit sensitive. Someone snitched on the guy that shot him, the police didn't solve that. Although they'd like to take the credit for it. Was it your assignment to find crime on topix.com?  (Apr 23, 2008 | post #20)

Police: 2 Teenagers Hurt In Accidental Shooting By Officer

Ho Co police push their power to the limit. YES, YES, YES, you are so right. Somebody said it and it's so very true. Scarey as hell though. If we all were standing around the mailbox chatting, after getting our mail out of the box, after a long day at work on casual Friday, would we accidentally get shot?  (Apr 23, 2008 | post #11)

Police: 2 Teenagers Hurt In Accidental Shooting By Officer

Everyone that lives outside of Columbia thinks that this is a safe place to live. LITTLE CRIME - ha ha ha, you are so uninfomed. Perhaps you ought to read more of the articles and blogs on the crap that does go on in "this sleepy little town" of Howard Co., like Firefighter Steve said. I cannot believe that this is called an accidental shooting, in fact, I am in tears of laughter over that evaluation. How do you get out of the car and your revolver mistakenly discharges? COME ON people, get real. There are so many things that go on here, in Howard County, that no one ever hears about, trust me, you don't want to spend $400,000 on that little 1100 sq. ft. condo in Columbia. Hey, we have the best school system, but a lot of the children are off the hook. I have given up on living here just for the school system, I will have to move somewhere else and save my child from the ruins of Columbia. Those of you that live in Columbia, how safe do you really feel? How does it feel when you go to the shopping center and kids that are 15, even younger are using vile language, cursing, taunting other children, acting with aggression and down right ignorant?  (Apr 23, 2008 | post #10)

Mariah Carey Drama Reported During 'Idol' Appearance

Come on, what about Whitney Houston - talented as hell, but she is really nasty and common to her fans. You go out to a nice restaraunt and your fans say something to you and you scream on them. Your fans are what makes you the money, so to be nasty to your fans and public is one thing, but when you take a job that requires you to work with stars, you have to expect some attitude at some point. When you are a star, you have to know that your life is no longer your own, you belong to everyone.  (Apr 23, 2008 | post #34)

Produce Galore latest small-business casualty in Howard

I was upset to hear that both Produce Galore and Bun Penny were closing. They had both been in Columbia for many years, part of our towns history. Wilde Lake has become a problem in the last few years - man gets stabbed in KFC parking lot, man gets shot and killed in front of the gas station, I mean really, how many people want to shop where they don't feel safe? Not to mention overhead for these small businesses. I am sorry that these two companies suffered these hard times and had to leave us, both had excellent food and a great reputations.  (Apr 23, 2008 | post #2)

Police plan DUI checkpoints in county

That is cool, but I am a bit more concerned with the shootings/killings . I understand that there is a need for DUI check points, but that is everywhere, not just here. We need a task force that can get these guns off of our "SO SAFE" - ha ha ha, streets of Columbia. They actually have police stationed at some of the bars in Columbia, so that when you come out, they are watching you get to your vehicle. You may not see them, although we are talking about HCPD, so you will see them, if you look. Getting a DUI is no joke, the laws have gotten way more strict than they were years ago and justifiably. So, I am cool with the check points, just think that is only 1 problem out of many that we have to address in Howard County.  (Apr 23, 2008 | post #56)

Columbia teen found guilty of 2006 fatal shooting

Ya know, I really cannot get over the fact that so many youth have guns and knives and think that it is cool to kill someone. When I was younger, we fought with our fists, if we had to fight at all. I am the first to admit, sometimes you have to fight, even if you don't want to. It is cowardly to use a weapon, why can't you be a real man or woman, so you think you are, and fight the real way. KNUCK UP people, stop hiding behind weapons, throw dem bows if you have to, but using weapons is cowardly. 16 years old carrying a gun, damn, that is some crazy shit. As a parent, I would be a bit embarrassed. This kind of stuff happening in Columbia, unreal. Parents, if your children are hanging around in the wrong crowd, it is up to you to make that change. Talk to your children. When you kill, you deserve to serve your time. Sad thing, some of these kids don't even mind going to jail.  (Apr 23, 2008 | post #15)

Victims Of Quadruple Fatal Crash Identified - News Story ...

From what I understand, it was the driver of the car's fault for crossing over into the other lane, on coming traffic. That is a horrible area and the traffic is awful, in fact, you have to be extra carefil with all of the trucks traveling thos roads, it is a high industrial area. Regardless, it was a very horrific accident and my prayers are with the family and friends of everyone involved. If there is any kind of collection for the little girl in critical care, please post it, so everyone will be able to get involved.  (Apr 23, 2008 | post #11)

Mariah Carey Drama Reported During 'Idol' Appearance

Not a big deal. The woman has a helluva voice on her. She is loved by many people. Sometimes when you are good, you get a big head. Hard to work with is normal when you demand the best from everyone around you. If she didn't have that voice and put on an excellent show, that would be different. You haven't heard anyone say that she was bad in concert.  (Apr 23, 2008 | post #27)
