I heard it all associating with the terrorist group was like a video game . This young man should beRead More sentenced for the same amount of time as the rest . Know he can get out of prison with a bad taste in his mouth and blow up some Americans . After 911 there should be no deals made with terrorists .

I said it when this was first announced and I will say it again! What a waste of money andRead More resources! The state police and baltimore county have assisted all of Harford County for decades. Bane's program is an election year ploy and if enough to help him when, the taxpayers will find out AFTER the election what the TRUE costs are. Bane's very own heath care exchange strategy.

Did the person in the truck, drive down the hill from the parking lot to Route 22?
The patient went from Upper Chesapeake Medical Center off MD Route 24 to Harvest Court, according to the sheriff's office.

By running away, it proves that the person wasn't suicidal or they would have stay!

Upper Chesapeake does not have a psychiatric unit, so I'm not sure the story is exactly right. it isRead More possible that a patient was in the ER being evaluated, but I doubt that this person was actually admitted. Usually, if a person presents to UCMC with a psychiatric issue that warrants admission, they are sent to Harford Memorial, unless they are full, in which case another bed needs to be located at another facility. I find it hard to find fault with UCMC with what little info is given in the story and knowing that the information is not likely entirely correct.

My point was after the way my wife was treated at the hospital and was told we charged yourRead More insurance as much as we can. Force her out of the hospital @ 8pm @ night saying she only had COPD. One day or so later she had a blood clot go to her upper thigh. Had to be rush back to have a operation to save her leg. A doctor from University Hospital had her transfered to University. And to find out she should have had blood thinning medicine. Also she didn't have COPD, she had a heart disease that caused congestive heart failure and she passed away with no help from your UCMC or the (Old Fallston Hospital) which was a joke back then.

But we can get stoned now, makes perfect sense !! You could always just drive like responsibleRead More people and keep your speed safe, there are thousands of people missing limbs or worse wishing they never were involved in a crash by either there own fault or the result of some balloon knot, Thanks for keeping us safe officers

This is a terrible tragedy but I don't consider Bethesda as a Baltimore suburb but a WashingtonRead More suburb. Why should this story get a mention on this site ?
ladypoet April 14, 2014 at 01:14 pm
Catch him and do the same as he did to his family. This was such a heinous crime. Who could killRead More your own mother, children and the mother of your children? A no good demon!
Patrick Carter April 14, 2014 at 02:29 pm
Find him and fry him. He should die regardless of his age. Italy probably won't help because of theRead More Amanda Knox case. I say govt should put a hit on him.

Will someone please help Robert find his medications?
Justin case April 11, 2014 at 11:15 am
He probably retired from the state department under an alias. They didn't even notice he was missingRead More for an entire week so I'm sure they wouldn't notice if he came back to work as Juan Rodriguez or some other alias. Bunch of idiots. The FBI must finally be sick of this guy embarrassing them for 38 years

re: Vehicle Flipped on Bel Air Bypass - trying to get clarifications: 1) the vehicle was to the westRead More of the southbound lane beyond the guardrail; whereas, the article indicated it was off the northbound lane, 2) article stated "At that time a helicopter was on the way to take one person to a regional trauma center, the report stated." - does this mean that THIS helicopter stopped to provide this assistance or does this refer to a separate non-related helicopter in use at that time?, 3) what was the apparent cause?, 4) what were the possible related weather conditions?, 5) what were the apparent injuries to the single victim, 6) age of the victim?, 7) how long was traffic subsequently blocked/delayed as a result? ---Far more often than not, the Bel Air Patch provides very brief/incomplete 'snip-its' of news leaving more questions unanswered than those that may have been answered, plus, there is most often no follow-up to any such story so the Bel Air Patch readers are unable to obtain any 'closure' to the news story.... How can this be addressed by a 'news-providing' organization?

Hey does anyone know about the pick-up truck crash on Churchville Road near Starbucks yesterday?Read More That was so weird! The truck's back end was wedged halfway up the retaining wall. Sure do hope no one was seriously injured.

I respect the jobs LEO's do, but I hope they ticket each other. Since the law changed Oct 1, 2013, IRead More have noticed both citizens and LEO's distracted and driving.

Goodness, pretty soon just sitting in a car will get you a ticket (money grab) . One liberty afterRead More another being taken away by the police state. Time to move to Canada.
Deputies responded to a call for shots fired on Todd Road and instead found bottle bombs, the fire marshal said. (Credit: Submitted Photo)
josey April 4, 2014 at 09:03 am
As a person who lives on Todd Rd. Monday the shot gun sounds where heard around 1-2pm in theRead More afternoon. The cops came and went door to door. Then again they started Monday around 11pm. Then started back up at 545am. There where at least 6 blast that morning. The cops where even there when the last ones went off. I heard there was one that didn't even go off that was found. Everyone was scared someone was firing a gun. No one was harmed that's true. This is a situation where someone could have been hurt. What ever the courts decide to do with this is up to them. I am just glad you say this will never happen again.
Jeff April 7, 2014 at 11:31 am
For everybody condemning this young boy for doing a stupid thing, and yes it was a stupid thing forRead More him to do, I guess they never did anything wrong as kids. They were all perfect teenagers that never drove to fast, drank alcohol at parties, did drugs, or had pre-marital sex. He is 17! At least he didn't shoot his parents, or go to school and god forbid shoot someone there, then blame society. the people that are saying that he needs the max sentence need to get off your high horse, and hope and pray that your "perfect kids" don't do anything stupid!
Amanda April 9, 2014 at 12:33 pm
Was this a stupid decision? Yes, however, the fact remains not only was the boy charged but heRead More actually took the time to write an apology. I'm by no means saying his choices were correct, but people make mistakes. Yes someone could have been injured, but they weren't. With all the craziness in the world today condemning a "BOY" for stupid actions is not the way it should be. If the police in fact did go door to door, obviously they didn't go to his door or I think he would have probably not continued doing it, so fact remains if the police were so vigilant, why did this kid not even know they had been called? I'm not saying he shouldn't get in some trouble, but jail time is a bit excessive. You have kids running around selling drugs, shooting their friends, family, at least he wasn't drunk behind the wheel! By no means am I saying what he did was correct but again everyone makes mistakes. I'm sure in his head setting bottle bombs off in the woods AWAY from people had no malicious intent. If he truly meant to hurt someone or destroy property he would have been putting them in mailboxes and such. Yes he was wrong, but how many times do you have someone convicted of a DUI who is an adult and knows better turning around driving again? No he is not a toddler but he is still a child, I mean the kid has 2 jobs, that's more then most parents can say about their children who sit at home, hopped up on drugs living off mommy and daddy. Give him some community service.
Deputy Christoher Behles was sentenced to five years with five years suspended.
RPB April 7, 2014 at 04:48 pm
These people feel they are above the law, put them in jail and watch how quick the others will fallRead More in line. The ones that won't talk is as bad as the ones breaking the laws. Stop with the kid gloves and they will start acting within the law.
Brynn April 8, 2014 at 03:07 pm
According to an article in The Sun, Mr. Innocent Citizen (William Redding Harvey, V, 33) was to beRead More tried on charges of driving on a suspended license, driving under the influence of alcohol, and driving with an incorrect license plate. The criminal charges of second-degree assault, resisting arrest, obstructing and hindering police, and failure to obey a lawful order were dropped. This apparently confused the Assistant State’s Attorney regarding the charges, then there was an entry error in the court records, all which delayed the trial. He’ll be back on the street in no time. GREAT JOB HARFORD COUNTY LEGAL--another win for the criminal! Maybe we can score him a subsidized cellphone, so he can add texting while driving to his 'safety' record. Cop should’ve shot the POS.
Really? April 8, 2014 at 09:55 pm
Brynn, yes this person is a criminal. And yes he had broken laws. And will probably continue toRead More break laws. But still, that does not justify firing a weapon at a vehicle. Reckless endangerment was the charge. By definition that is exactly what happend. Would I have done the same? Who knows. But I would have to pay the price for my actions. No exceptions should be considered. Guilty is guilty. Plain and simple. They both should be punished to the full extent of the law.
