Another day, another ____

A 59-year-old man is in critical condition after being shot in the head last night in the 2400 block of Pickering Drive

Two robbery victims shot in two separate incidents in the SE.

"The state could be forced by next week to let suspected criminals in Baltimore go free* until trial if it does not provide them with lawyers at the time their bail is set." .. but they mostly go free on bail anyway, so whatever.

Another day, another PR boner for SRB. The Schmoke of the North touted a Twitter chat, then ignored citizen questions in favor of astroturf questions from out-of-town political consultants.

Another day, more top brass fleeing the BPD--

Another day, more scumbag behavior at Arundel Mills Mall: four men made off with $15k+ worth of necklaces.

Oh, look, novelty. A Baltimore man went to Texas, stole $200k worth of Hermes purses* (so in other words, eight bags).

Rock climber from VA David DiPaolo, 31, was arrested and charged with killing 69-year-old Geoffrey Farrar with a claw hammer* at the C&O Canal park in Bethesda.

Remember Nicholas Browning, who at the tender age of 15 and mad about being sent to Boy Scout camp and not being allowed to use the family car, killed his parents and younger brothers in Cockeysville then went to a sleepover and came home and pretended to find them? He's 21 now, and wants a modification to the two life sentences he's serving at Patuxent. A hearing is scheduled for tomorrow morning at 9:30, presumably at the Towson courthouse. In 2012 Browning posted a prisoner personal ad, revealing that his favorite band is Blink 182, his favorite movie is "The Departed" and his favorite position is doggie style.

And in HarfCo, Robert Richardson III, 18, has pleaded guilty to killing his father, Robert Jr. and was sentenced to 18 years. Like Browning he'll likely serve his sentence at Patuxent; unlike Browning, multiple witnesses agree Richardson was abused by his father.

February 3

nicholas browningThe four bodies found in Cockeysville appear to be Towson real estate and corporate lawyer John Browning, his wife Tamara, and two of the couple's three sons. The third son, Nicholas Waggoner Browning, right, "found" the bodies when he arrived home at 5 p.m. on Saturday afternoon, and has been charged as an adult with four counts of first-degree murder.

The city's first murder of February occurred in the 1600 block of E. Federal St. yesterday morning at 10 a.m.

Police are looking for Ellis D. Johnson. Johnson and three minors (who are in custody) allegedly beat a cop who tried to bust up a deal at an apartment in the 1500 block of Pennsylvania Ave. on January 14. Officer William Olsen is recovering at home, and will need hip surgery.

"Every one of us knew that Mr. Alder was very likely to physically harm, even murder, any of us and our families at any time." Yep, you sure got that one right.

Michael Ryan Anderson was arrested this morning for the murder of Finksburg video store manager Gary L. Hatfield on January 26.

Chris Perkins -- who resigned as director of Maryland's juvenile detention facilities on December 13 after a City Paper investigation into past accusations of child abuse -- claims he has evidence to prove his innocence but never got the chance to present it in court.

Emmanuel M. Bryant of Lansdowne was murdered in the Southwestern on Thursday afternoon.

"Turner was Stephen's world." Then maybe he shouldn't have, you know, thrown him into the damned river. (Allegedly, of course.)

Annapolis police released a sketch of a suspect in January's double murder, but the Sun didn't run it.

The kids are talking about Nick Browning on Facebook. Meanwhile the Sun's Julie Scharper and Justin Fenton report on the (alleged) motive:
"He told police that he was upset that his father forced him to attend a Boy Scout camp in Western Maryland, where the Browning family had a vacation home and frequently spent weekends. A week away from his 16th birthday, he also resented that his father told him he could not immediately use a Ford Expedition that was to be a present, a source with knowledge of the investigation said."

Four Life Sentences

two consecutive, two concurrent, for Nicholas Browning

Conspiracy Conviction in Death of Ricardo Paige

A city jury on Wednesday convicted Trendon Washington, 21, of the 500 block of E 43rd Street, of conspiracy to commit the first-degree murder of Ricardo Paige, 54. Says the SAO:
The jury heard approximately five days of testimony and deliberated two days before reaching its verdict. Judge John A. Howard scheduled sentencing for April 6, 2009 at which time Washington faces a possible life sentence.

The jury hung on the first-degree murder and handgun counts. The State has the option of trying Washington on these charges again and will make that decision at a later date.

On March 20, 2007 at approximately 6:11PM officers were called to the 500 block of E. 43rd street for a shooting. Upon arrival it was learned that Mr. Paige had been fatally shot six times, including a shot into Paige’s mouth. The motive for the murder was that Washington believed that Paige called the police who in turn raided a stash house where Washington kept his drugs. Upon further investigation it was learned that the defendant along with two other persons committed the crime.

Trials are pending against other co-defendants in this case: Jamal Fulton and Kevin Armstead. Assistant State’s Attorney Kevin Wiggins of the Homicide Division prosecuted this case.

"Jewel Williams was just 4 years old in 1998 when she watched a man kill her mother and her mother's friend in a Reservoir Hill apartment ... She stayed in the apartment with the bodies for two days, caring for her 1-year-old stepbrother and trying to treat her mother's wounds with toilet paper and a toy stethoscope."

UPDATE: Nicholas Browning will be tried as an adult

Crazy in the Suburbs

WTF? Kenneth G. Ryan, age 21 of Catonsville, got 30 years for killing his 15-day-old son last year after huffing "Dust-Off," a computer keyboard cleaning product.

A "barricade situation" in a Roger's Forge rowhome ended peacefully.

Here's the story of Norman Stamp, the police officer who was shot and killed at Haven Place. His last words were "I'm a cop."

Jean Marabella: "If you care about Baltimore, you should read the transcript of what (Judge) Young said... . No, don't just read it, clip it out of the paper or print it on your computer and put it in your pocket. Or stick it in the frame of your mirror, forward it to someone, do something other than just let it pass unheard."

I don't often say this, but Jean's correct. Here's the link again in case you blew off reading Judge David Young's comments.

In the "it'd be funny if it weren't true" department, an Examiner photographer was assaulted outside Reginald F. Lewis High School as she was doing a story on school violence.

Nancy Schmidt was hardly alone: lots of seniors are victimized every day.

Catherine Palmer's bail was lowered to 10 grand.

The dude who crashed his car and killed himself, his girlfriend, and her family on Rt. 1 was here to collect an inheritance, which he and his lady wisely spent on crack, heroin, and PCP.

Espinosa and Canela may be granted an appeal.

While it's awesome that Garland Williams led the construction of a Browning family memorial garden at Cockeysville Middle School, it pisses me off that things like this never seem to happen in the city. I mean, where's the memorial garden for the Dawson family?

If this batch of thieves pool their resources, they can totally start a kickass band with one of them fancy MySpace pages.

Curse you, Bealefeld, and your almost crime-free news days. Fortunately, I forgot to link to the Ink yesterday, so you murder junkies can get your fix with five homicides over the past week. Of particular interest to those of you who love to bandy about accusations of racism, a black man and a white man were shot outside the convenience store on Garrison Blvd. last Saturday, but only the black man died. Conspiracy???

Nicholas Browning kills like a man, but will he get tried like a little boy?

MTA regulars say our buses are hardly safe and reliable. "Sometimes kids get on the bus and your heart is pounding. ... You better keep quiet or you're going to get slammed. You pray to get off safe."

You gotta love a city where a burglary at "Tiffany Hair & Gift Shop" results in 30 stolen cartons of cigarettes. Next time I need some tequila, I'm hitting my local barber shop.

Now why in the world would Mayor Moyer think a curfew could be enforced when the current laws aren't adequately enforced? (All sarcasm aside, I'm actually glad to see she's looking at possible ways to curtail violence in her city's public housing. Besides, the quotes from the article suggest she's not a total imbecile. Thoughts?)

Actually, Mayor Moyer might want to consider building on this strategy: "An Annapolis man went to the hospital early Tuesday morning after trying twice to buy drugs in different areas and getting beaten up both times."

Carroll County school board cracker Jeffrey Morse used a naughty word. To his credit, he took full responsibility. To the Sun's discredit, this article got about 10 times more words than most murder victims get. (And to the Sun's credit, they've gotten much more thorough in their coverage since we've stopped killing each other so often.)

In really cool news that has nothing to do with crime, a 290-pound baby boy was born at the zoo last night.

February 12

Nicholas Browning was indicted on four counts of murder and handgun charges. He is on special watch, and is being observed by medical staff at the Baltimore County jail. My guess is he's sad that he can't drive that sweet Expedition.

The body found in Bel Air on Saturday has been ID'd as 57-year-old Paul Michael Shupe. Cause of death hasn't been determined, but there are no outward signs of foul play.

Prison justice is alive and well.

It's a bad news day for the BPD. Officer Salvatore Rivieri got caught on YouTube harassing some of Baltimore's most dangerous criminals. Officer Christopher Vallejo was found guilty of second-degree assault for attacking a woman in Federal Hill last September when he was off-duty. A woman in Baltimore filed a $40M lawsuit because Officer Ray Woodward allegedly punched her 16-year-old son in the face and broke his jaw for no apparent reason.

It's also a bad news day for (alleged) rapists. Dwight Carter was arrested and charged with raping a 13-year-old friend of his step-sister. Thomas J. Grant was given two consecutive life sentences for the 1979 rape and murder of Sheila "Sis" Bazemore Rascoe. Cortlandt Harvey Dorsey pleaded guilty to raping a 56-year-old Kenyan tourist in 2006.

And there's been bad news for people who eat: A couple was robbed in Little Italy while taking a walk after dinner, a pizza delivery guy in Pikesville was robbed of money and pizza, and a gunman ordered food at a Dunkin Donuts on Reisterstown Rd. and then stole the contents of two cash registers. No word on whether or not he got away with any donuts.

Ex-offenders are working with the Baltimore Health Department to try to stop the violence in the city.
"It's gonna take [guys] like us in the 'hood," (Donte) Barksdale, 33, was saying to a young man he met on Monument Street last week, not far from the Safe Streets office, pressing a flier into the youth's hand. "The police can't do it. It's impossible."
