Witnesses told police that two men entered the backyard area of the house and announced a robbery.

where the hell are these people coming from, I've lived here for 19 or so years ,I was about 9.. you never heard of any of these things happening..the city is bleeding out...wow, if MD was more like Texas these punk ass people would think twice before doing a criminal act...soon it will be all the way down to crofton/ davidsonville.

Had he NOT been free on bond this would not have happened. Why was he out on bond Judge when at that time he was clearly a teen with a huge problem ... he had a handgun May 26 and was at a stabbing incident!! Obviosly he was in trouble then! Has nothing to do with the city it says he is a Glen Burnie teen - parents every place need to work harder these days to keep their kids out of trouble whether it is the city or the suburbs. Judges need to do their jobs by protecting us and steering criminals towards a either a better path or life in the jail.

Because they keep letting them out WTF.... I have a disorderly conduct from 1989 they I can get off my record but these ppl are still on the street

Hopefully they KEEP him incarcerated this time since he obviously is too violent to live in the community without being a danger to others.

Hall's bond was set at $50,000.00 in the May 26th case - he posted bond and was released (that would be about $5,000). Obviously, he is not from a family with no means.

I spoke with some kids who know Hall. He has been known to rob others but not been caught so far. Who was the judge who let him out and almost got another kid killed. And why is there a difference between murder and attempted murder. You get a lighter penalty just because you are a lousy aim ?!

I know 100% its the parents, but your enviroment plays a huge part, its influence. yes hes a Glen Burnie teen, look at how far downhill Glen Burnie is. All the apartments , an HUD homes, what do you think those things bring. Not everyone who lives in a apartment( I have),or section 8 housing are morally just JACKED up. but it only takes a few...yes the city brings violence, messed up kids now in the suburbs. parents parents yes its there fault, but dont try and say that where you come from has no play...Glen Burnie is horrible now, dont lie to yourself or anyone else on this page,it is...The cost of housing went down bringing in people that you dont want..face it...You will never see these kind of things in high end areas,why?...easy they cant afford to live there...Davidsonville, Clarksville, etc. If its 1/2 million bet your ass the violence is on the outskirts...just saying

As predicted, Cordish's handhsake deal with Leopold is already having a terrible affect on the local community. Just like any other casino town, the thugs move in right behind.
