How tough is Walbrook High? One Carrington McNutt was murdered and at least eight people were injured after a huge brawl broke out at the reunion and a guy went on a "stabbing rampage"
Update: stabbing rampage guy was ID'd as James Dixon

Another "possible homicide" in South Baltimore

Former pastor Kevin Pushia pled guilty to killing blind, disabled Lemuel Wallace to steal his life insurance money. Said his defense attorney, "Mr. Pushia made some poor decisions"

Quality reportage from WMAR: "Folks in Roland Park like to walk....that's how the neighborhood is sort of set up."

Some chutzpah!

Politicians in the Jessamy camp call the Bernstein "Dawson" ad offensive to the Dawson family ... apparently without talking to any family members! Says Carnell Dawson of the ad, "it makes some good points ... Nobody should be saying what they think we feel." No kidding!
Meanwhile, the back-and-forth goes on over who in the prosecutor's office dropped the ball on the Dawsons, and the NAACP is planning some sort of.. something.

ps. here's the Marge Shipley radio ad

pps., for the next round, Jessamy's going after Bernstein's experience as a defense attorney.

and ppps., hope you can come out for our Bernstein Meet & Greet, next Wednesday the 1st from 6- 7:30 at the Falls in Mt. Washington. (The candidate will be there then, but the fun will also go on after he leaves if you can't make it by 7:30). We plan to have some crime-themed drink specials, little snacks and a rollicking good time, and it would be nice if you could join/ RSVP to our Facebook group so we will know how many people to provide for.

The Long Rod of the Law

A federal indictment for Steven Blackwell

Ew gross, a decomposing body found near 25th and Guilford

County police ISO home-invading sex offender Lavar Rich

more on the Roland Park Robbery

RP Robbery

A man and woman held up at gunpoint in the middle of the day near the Roland Park library yesterday

Another Bernstein Supporter

Marge Shipley, the mother of murdered witness Carl Lackl, has come out in support of Gregg Bernstein.

Somewhat off topic, but if the podcast of Shipley's interview on the Ed Norris show about a year and a half ago is still available I highly recommend listening to it. She gave the interview shortly after Patrick Byers was convicted and it was absolutely heart-wrenching to listen to.

The great debate

Candidates for top prosecutor job square off again, this time in Canton.

What the who?!

City voters, have you gotten your "Official 2010 Primary Sample Ballot" in the mail yet? Because early voting starts in 12 days and I have no idea who anyone is besides the prospective State's Attorneys and the Conaways, and the sample ballot looks nothing like the Web site. Who is Neil R. Bernstein? Who are these people running for judge of the orphan's court?!
