Fever For The Flavor of Heroin

Four homicides this weekend, a man fatally stabbed in the 1800 block of N. Fulton last night, a man shot in the head in the 100 block of South Kossuth St., Patricia Lynn Harwood, age 50 was, stabbed to death at 40 Stockton St.,* Eric Howard, 47, shot in the back at 109 Denison St.

Remember when the BPD swept up 48 BGF members last fall? (or tried to, anyway?) Well, Ian Duncan has been on the grind to bring us the deets, which involve eight years of building cases, a shooting victim murdered* allegedly after reporting his robbery and shooting to the police and girlfriends and moms screening calls.*

Six guys were indicted and the BPD is ISO five more on charges of operating a heroin and cocaine ring in west Baltimore. The ring allegedly had its own brands, "Mercedes" and "fever."
ps., I just realized that I'm so old probably no one gets the reference to the title of this blog post.

Lynette Witherspoon
looks like Large Marge
One Lynette Witherspoon, biomom, abducted her six-month-old daughter Zynia, daughter was later found safe and unharmed. Eight-year-old Victor Wilson also went missing and was found. Neither case triggered an Amber alert, though, which is odd.

You'll need a shower after reading this article in the City Paper about child molestation and its apologists in Baltimore's Orthodox Jewish community.

Two more candidates for parents of the year: AAC's Brooke Michael and Michael May, who smoked K2 (aka Spice) and passed out with their 8-month-old in the car.

Speaking of kids, explain to me, please, why so many people (including ACLU) are so against youth curfews? "House arrest," really? "Infringing on parental rights?" Where was the ACLU when big government took away my right as a parent to serve my kids Scotch and cigars after a hearty meal? Anyway, final vote on the law is tonight.

A Catonsville mailman stole 20,000 pieces of mail.*

Christopher Tonjes, the mayor's IT director, has resigned amidst allegations that his office paid contractors for jobs* that may or may not have been done a). at all and b). by the people who were hired to do them.

Also tonight at 7 on MPT, another gubernatorial debate, and Brown is showing up to this one, They Say.

A new law is taking effect that bans the speed-camera bounty, which was already banned but something something loophole.
