Ok, got the homicide numbering issue fixed. Murder #215 for 2012 was/is Thomas Cunion, 27, 1100 block of Webb Court, shot to death in a double shooting last night.

In the County, an officer shot and killed a mentally ill man with a knife. So sad. If you ever sit and listen to ScanBaltimore on any given day, it's shocking how many calls are for crazy people-- seemingly one an hour. And even if one does have health insurance, it's rather appalling how many plans simply don't cover mental health services at all, or claim that they do but then have no psychiatrists (who can prescribe medication) on the plan, only social workers or whatever, or they do have psychiatrists but they have one or two who have months-long waiting lists.

A Christmas gift for the vengeful: a Glen Burnie card and coin shop owner shot and killed an intruder.

Ugh, Wayne LaPierre, "The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun." Dewd, if you've over the age of 5, you are old enough to know that there are no good people or bad people (and for that matter, half of people are not "guys"). There are crazy people, brain-damaged-people, selfish people, people with extremely poor conflict-management skills, "good" people in horrible situations, all of whom may appear "good" as far as the government is concerned. If the solution is to have everyone armed, that is the end of hope for civilization. Merry Christmas!

Nice blog - but I humbly disagree that there aren't good and bad people. Yes there are crazy people, psychos. But think how many so called psychos plan out their crimes - which shows awareness which shows intent which shows they are evil. Let me make it simple for you: anyone who deliberately hurts a child or vulnerable person (mentally challenged, elderly) is evil. So, I congratulate the shop owner.
