Gentlemen on the verge of a nervous breakdown

A guilty plea for assault, a hate crime and an attack on a corrections officer from Calvin Lockner, accused of a racially motivated attack on a septuagenarian fisherman last year. Enjoy what may be one of your last quotes from Jessamy's Deputy Division Chief of Communications & Governmental Affairs, Joe Sviatko (who is not an attorney, WBAL fact checkers): "It's safe to say that this is a plea agreement that we feel really good about because were going to get this person off the streets for 31 years."
We'll miss you Joe!

A new commander for the sex offense unit, one who "doesn't have experience with sex offense investigations," but "officials believe that may be a plus given the past problems in the unit." heh heh, sex unit.

HoCo police will buy 7 pairs of Blucher mocs for whomever finds the "Preppy Burglar".
UPDATE! He was nabbed and named as Jeremy Matthew Hall, 30, and Fenton & Hermann are "doing some background checking to see who this man is what he does for a living." Yes, do tell!

Sweeping away drug dealers

After they clean up the damn playground, they're going right back home to their fancy clothes and fancy cars. They’re just trying to look good for the cameras.
Oh, Jesus, there's some new bail bondsmen in town (thanks CP, and thanks readers for voting us Baltimore's 3rd-most-beloved blog!)

more on the raid

Hopkins shooter discussed killing himself a week before shooting.

Sounds like somebody has a case of the Mondays

Five people got shot on Monday night. It sounds like none of them were fatal.

The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner got a fancy new building.

A new start for police after Jessamy?

Wicomico County needs to figure out who will try the death penalty case against sex offender/alleged kidnapper and murderer Thomas Leggs after Davis Ruark lost his re-election bid.

Media Blabber

The Johns Hopkins News-Letter steps in it big time, garnering national press for two lovely pieces: one by Managing Editor Greg Sgammato on how much he hates to see "fat chicks at a Hopkins party," another by one Javier Avitia on the advantages of "Banging Under the Influence," topped it off with half-assed non-apology. Grooming some real charmers over there!

Yes, I know, not a crime, stick to crime reports, etc etc.
