No S, no M in quintuple shooting

A quintuple shooting: "some of the victims were found Sunday along Wheeler Avenue near West Fayette Street. More victims were found along North Gorman Avenue and in the 100 block of North Benatalou Street." Three victims were female, one was a 16-year-old boy. No suspects, no motive.

The 22-year-old woman found shot to death in Canton last weekend was identified as Alaina Ciara High, apparently a frequent and habitual drug user.

"I have to kill someone for my family," said a 13-year old boy who broke into a woman's home at 10 in the morning, armed with a knife

Police are searching for two missing Landsdowne teens, one of them is suicidal

"Community activists and families of people whose deaths remained unclassified are planning to hold a candlelight vigil outside the state Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore on Wednesday evening. The vigil, scheduled for 6 p.m., is being held to honor the hundreds of people in Baltimore whose deaths have been ruled 'undetermined' during the past decade."

Take a guess: how many MD law enforcement officers have been killed in the line of duty so far in '08?

So where do you draw your conclusion about undertrained OBs? How about the line "Fat, old women lead to higher fatal cesearan outcomes". Factually correct but no one wants to hear that.

How do you draw your conclusion regarding Ms. High? I looked her up on MJSC and it seems like she was distributing drugs not neccessarily using them.

1. being fat and/or old does not increase a woman's risk of death by c-section. The leading causes of c-section deaths are blood clots, infection or complications from anaesthesia, factors that are not age or weight related.

2. I guess it's possible she was frequently and habitually using them for profit only. She certainly has a heckofa lot of entries on the JIS-- drugs, assault, a firearm, two kids she lost custody of, & all before the age of 22.
