You have to start a long time before 8 - 10, Joe. But don't put it in terms of "cants".Read More Put it in terms of what is smart behavior to protect themselves and others. And coach them if they make mistakes. Don't punish unless they harm someone else.
Joe Van Deuren April 12, 2014 at 03:20 pm
While I would agree that talking to a child about driving habits prior to the age of 8 would be fineRead More - talking them about sexting - would be inappropriate. More appropriated would be "respect for their body and themselves". This is the basics of "good touch, bad touch" education. In regard to punishment - teaching / discipline is far more important and a subject I have written on in my blog and school. Consequences (natural) as the result of any behavior should be allowed as that is a part of real life, good or bad. It is a great learning tool. When we do not allow our children to have consequences and failure, we are making them less resilient and weaker rather than preparing them for the future.

I am going on 50 and when I was a teen I was into a lot of bad things such as Drugs . I took myRead More first hit of acid at age 13 and I loved it . I Also smoked weed on a daily bases and also smoked PCP and was busted at age 14 for having them in school . That was the first and last time I got busted not because I stopped doing drugs I just got smarter or more Stupid . We never dreamed of the things these children have now days . Not even in our wildest drug induced comas . Kids don't realize how much danger there is on the internet .

This is a terrible tragedy but I don't consider Bethesda as a Baltimore suburb but a WashingtonRead More suburb. Why should this story get a mention on this site ?
ladypoet April 14, 2014 at 01:14 pm
Catch him and do the same as he did to his family. This was such a heinous crime. Who could killRead More your own mother, children and the mother of your children? A no good demon!
Patrick Carter April 14, 2014 at 02:29 pm
Find him and fry him. He should die regardless of his age. Italy probably won't help because of theRead More Amanda Knox case. I say govt should put a hit on him.

As if robberies aren't bad enough, this one is reprehensible!

I am sure it has been painted and has spinners on it by now!

Will someone please help Robert find his medications?
Justin case April 11, 2014 at 11:15 am
He probably retired from the state department under an alias. They didn't even notice he was missingRead More for an entire week so I'm sure they wouldn't notice if he came back to work as Juan Rodriguez or some other alias. Bunch of idiots. The FBI must finally be sick of this guy embarrassing them for 38 years

Your government agencies at work....HA! But cops can get away with beating an unarmed or mentallyRead More challenged or mentally ill person to DEATH. What a world.

Hey guys, let's stay on topic, please. Thank you!

just sayin', with all the crimes we are used to hearing about at the mall, it is nice that this isRead More all there was. Not trying to minimize the creepiness of it. but castrate? really?
Patrick Carter April 10, 2014 at 11:32 am
Give the the dumb fucker 10 years.
Steven Spiegel April 11, 2014 at 05:39 am
Yeah they will do 5 and be right back to the same ole same ole.
My Opinion April 11, 2014 at 09:31 am
"Surveillance video in the area took footage of the possible suspects using the victim’sRead More credit cards." Not really the main part of the story, but can the place that the possible suspect used the cards at, get in trouble for not checking ID with the credit card?

Don't even waste our tax money on scum like this. A single bullet is much cheaper, but then again,Read More that's too easy and not nearly traumatic enough. A bullet per day for a week sounds even better. Then give him blood, fix him up and repeat the process until his worthless body finally gives out and he meets his maker
elaine whitmore April 3, 2014 at 01:14 pm
Agreed Justin Case!! I just hate we'd have to waste a blood donation on him , to let us begin theRead More shooting process again. Ahhhh if only...
Steven Spiegel April 3, 2014 at 10:19 pm
These people are sick !!! What is the World coming to when grown men and woman look to prey on theRead More innocents of a child ? The parents should have there child taken away for allowing these goof to even Babysit there child look at him he looks like a criminal the way he is staring into the camera with the look of not caring about anything he looks like he is pissed off for what ever other crime he did to have his mug shot. When will todays young men and women learn that you don't leave your children with no one at that age ? I raised 8 children and I never even had then stay at my parents . I was taught by my parents that you made them you take care of them. There is no doubt in my mind that the parents of that child or probably caught up in the drug world . This is when social services need to step in and drug test the parents and if they are on drugs take the child out of the home and place them in foster care . Hopefully the child wont remember this when he or she grows up!!!!!

Governor Martin Owe,Malleys prison system again, maybe he was just going out for a pizza or a 12Read More pack, really there is no reason with today's technology that every inmate does not have a ankle tracking device to monitor every move at every minute of everyday they are guests of our resorts run my the liberal democrats of Maryland, you would know who was assaulting inmates, etc... but that only's makes sense so you can bet it will never happen in this state.
Dirty Doug April 7, 2014 at 11:58 am
How does an inmate even have access to a blanket? They should be sleeping on a cold cement floorRead More without blankets.
