January 24

The murder trial of Bryant Thompson, 20, of the 300 Block of East 29th Street, is scheduled for 9:30 tomorrow morning before Judge John P. Miller. The BCGJ indicted Thompson on February 17, 2005 for first-degree murder. Court documents allege that Thompson shot and killed Damon Lamont Brooks on September 26, 2004 in Brooks' apartment in the 300 block of East 23rd Street.

There have been 27 murders so far this year, incluing six juvenile victims.

Two men shot to death in the Eastern were identified as Gary Rideout, 41, and Raymond Williamson, 35. And in the Northern, a man was shot on Loyola Southway (a man was shot on Loyola Northway Dec. 12). Also in the Blotter, stolen beef, 130 pounds of shrimp, giant TVs, Chinese food, Acuras, some shop vacs, a gas truck, electrical wiring.

Jeffrey A. Ziegler, now 29, got a three-year prison term for the hit-and-run auto manslaughter of William Ruffin, 42. Ziegler is the horrible human being who hit a highway-construction worker with such force it sent his body flying 100 feet. According to witnesses, Ziegler then stopped, checked his car for damage, and sped off.

The family members shot by James Lydell Ray were identified as Kayla Baker, 12, Travon Baker, 16, Devin Baker, 15, and family friend Michelle Hickson, 39.

Money laundering, hooker parties, underage drinking, gambling, a police detective shot to death out front, tax evasion, mafia ties... it was once a helluva establishment, but after 50 years, Joe's Tavern on Dundalk Avenue is being shut down by the Liquor Board for selling booze to snitchy teen cadets.

Speaking of hookers, more on naughty women's studies prof. Brandy Britton.

WTF? In Montgomery County a 7-year-old girl was shot at a before-school daycare center by an 8-year-old boy.

In Rosedale, robbers tied up one employee of the Mars supermarket, assaulted two others and took money.

Your grammar bitches are probably next to your spelling bitches... you sure need a spellchecker! At least our conservative voices on the net... eh, don't even get me started.

Shouldn't that be spell-hyphen-checker?

Why could I not have had hooker college professors or pedophile high school teachers when I was in school? Damn my age!

Maurice Bradbury said...

I'm with you about the hooker college professor (and I did have a business-law professor who gave a very helpful lecture on all the different ways to get out of a prenup. She was recently divorced and drove a very large Mercedes) but pedophile teachers? Ewww!! Snay!!

Malnurtured Snay said...

Well, I should clarify that when I say "pedophile teachers" I'm talking about the hot hot HOT mid-twenties chicks who keep banging underage students.

In Rodricks' column today, from the mother of killed minor dealer Jay Kinzler:

"My son was not a saint," Penny Morgan wrote O'Malley recently. "But he did not deserve to die like he did with so many witnesses, who are terrified to come forth because the Baltimore streets are so vicious. Shame on you, Mayor O'Malley. ... Your city is out of control."

correction: Kinzler was not a minor; I meant he was a small-time dealer. He was like 33.

"Mercer ran the museum's gift shop before got the finance director's job."

Before got? What the hell is before got? The grammar bitches are obviously not over at WBAL either.

Grammar? What be grammar? We ain't got no stinkin' grammar (in Balto.) We're still struggling with 'See Spot run.'

The grammar bitches are chillin' wi' da competence bitches. Outside city limits.

Cham said...

taotechuck, grammar bitches aside, I really would like get on the gift shop manager to finance office career track just like that guy.

Perhaps I could run the gift shop at the Capitol and sell teeshirts for six months, then move on to the head of the Federal Reserve.

Although I am not ready to get on the respected-college-professor-to-hooker career track.

All the controversy about slots in Maryland and Abell Foundation just figured out what I've been saying for years:

Slot machines? Already have 'em. Nothin' new.
