JHU Homewood Campus students walk around with a big target on their back that says, "rob me". It's about time someone took matters into their own hands. Here's to vigilante justice!!!

It wasn't vigilante justice, it was self-defense.

BTW, it's crazy that the SA's office took so long to rule this incident justified. Imagine how much it must've sucked for the guy who was waiting to find out if he'd have to deal with legal threats.

It took so long because the Pontolillo family probably had to buy an extraordinary amount of gift cards for Jessamy.

Wow, just wow. That is some hardcore stupidity (unless the cab driver was trying to rip them off, but the whole assault on a cop thing makes them sound like morons.)

Not really Maryland related, but domestic terrorist Scott Roeder was convicted of first degree murder for killing Dr. George Tiller.

3000 Block of St. Paul.... I wonder where these students study. Were any of them carrying a sword?
