Won’t get any disagreement out of me. He’s not Jody in Baby Boy. This was calculated murder from a distance. That’s some evil shit.
It was a typo, I should’ve typed “Maryland/Northern Virginia area”. I know the bulk of the killings were in Maryland, I work down the street from the car dealership where James L. Buchanan was killed. That morning was filled with confused people and phones constantly ringing with callers checking on various staffers, I…
Not to mention that the grand plan was to kill a bunch of random people in the area, then head to the house of Muhammad’s estranged wife (link has a picture) and kill her too. Instead of questioning the husband first, they figured the police would attribute her death to the Beltway* Snipers and Muhammad would get away…
I want to issue a mea culpa on this. You have shown to be consistent and honest in your views, and I shouldn’t have attacked you. If you’re willing, I’d like to re-engage from this point. If not, I get it.
Why is anybody shedding a tear for this POS?! Lets pick a different hill to die on today people. Can a murderous scumbag at 17 turn it all around and make amends...becoming productive members of society? I’m not really that willing to find out
And to be clear, I wouldn't support the release of a murderer that is a danger to society.
I don’t think anybody actually believes this is about him being able to rehabilitated and not about punishment.
Why? As with black and brown juveniles around the country who are criminalized from pre-adolescence, 17 is plenty old to be treated like a “man,” in the U.S. court system, especially if the victims of such crimes are white (which, in this case, they were).
Wouldn’t it be funnier if it happened to Duke or Carolina though?
We’re all pulling for Virginia to get upset by a 16 seed again, right? Because that was hilarious.
The person you are responding to is a known troll.
There have been plenty of documentaries and fictional movies released about the abuses committed by the Catholic Church, some of them are over 20 years old.
What does that have to do with any of this?
She was goading them, hoping to provoke them into attacking her so she could call the cops and get at least one of them killed. But I’ll wait for the trolls in the greys to complain that she felt threatened.
just to take photos, and I’m glad we did when we did.
I lived in the East Village in the late‘90s, and I think Veselka and the big cube are the only place I went regularly that are still there.
Take it several steps further. Offer 3000+ Free scholarships for black American students every year.
Fellow Queens kid (and former graffiti writer) checking in too: I felt the same way. It was such an iconic place and was a landmark area that everyone knew. “Oh, the building with all the graffiti you can see from the bridge?” it was an easy way to pinpoint a location to people. A friend of mine and I went there about…
I moved away from the tri-State area in 1988 and recently went back to visit my daughter in Philly. We took a side trip to NYC and I was shocked at the changes over the past 20+ years; I came out of the Astor St. subway and felt like I had walked into an alternative universe--like the dark part of the film “It’s a…
As a native New Yorker & Queens resident, that whole scenario felt personal to me. I appreciate the line “as part of a larger ongoing movement to tear down the entire city of New York and replace it with condos.” It definitely feels that way. Developers have so much power. Rents arbitrarily skyrocket. Hell one of…
