Hopefully he gets deported back to Pakistan after he gets out of jail.
L.B. April 21, 2014 at 09:29 am
If the government does not deport him all AMERICANS should stand together and ask WHY?
Justin case April 21, 2014 at 10:33 am
He will be bitter at our government no matter how much time he spends in prison. Afterwards he getsRead More a free trip home to Pakistan so he can connect with more terrorist and perfect his art as a real terrorist that can and will inflict harm to all Americans.

I still have far less trepidation going to OC than downtown Baltimore City. In fact I won't even goRead More into the city for a ball game anymore. I'm not sure what the website means by "property crime" means but I suspect it is not as bad as violent crime upon my person.

So if any copycats didn't know where any other Jewish centers were, they do now. The media ALWAYSRead More gives out way too much information. They do most of the research for any suspected terrorist who just happens to watch the news or read/listen to it. They are always giving addresses and telling the terrorist where the security cameras are located or if a particular building is low on security.

I left my convertible top down once. Went inside to pay for the gas and when I returned there was aRead More blob of bubble gum on the floor. I would have put my foot on it and made a real mess if I had not seen it. I had noticed a dad showing his son how to pump gas when I went in and I had noticed the kid chewing something. Morons!!!!!
Dennis Gilpin April 15, 2014 at 05:33 pm
Many women pull up to get gas and leave their purse on the front seat when they are paying for theRead More gas or getting cigarettes. Easy pickings for the thieves to reach in the car and take it. In spring, many people don't use their heat or air conditioning and just leave their windows down. Thieves are very aware of this.

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 ?

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!

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.

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

Noreen Dalisera April 3, 2014 at 05:15 pm
I am glad he is back home safe:)
Steven Spiegel April 3, 2014 at 10:02 pm
Thank god Thor was returned unharmed . To the people who said that they should be charged withRead More kidnapping don't feel bad if you keep up with the articles in patch they only gave the guy who molested the kids he was watching $25.000 bail these guys are only $5000 dollars less on there bail . I believe that the bail should have been much higher on both cases !!!! With $25.000 dollar bail you can get out with 1% which is $250 dollars and then pay them every week that way the prisoners can get out and steal and molest some more before going back to jail . I believe if a prisoner gets out and commits a crime when they are put out on such a low bail for such horrendous crimes the damn Commissioner who gives the jerks that low of a bail should get the same sentence and sit there ass right next to them in jail!!!!!!!!!!!
Marcus Aurelius April 7, 2014 at 07:18 am
There is not one reason this crime is not the same as kidnapping a human, 10 years, no parole, hardRead More labor is what is the proper sentence, but in Maryland they can go to jail get a bushel crabs a couple steaks, 12 beers, blow a joint or two, get laid and sleep in, that is the democrat prison system from Owemalley and Brown of course our next criminal Governor

Nothing wrong with calling the police to check out someone with a gun in a place they are notRead More expected to be. From a distance, a pellet gun looks just like a real one. That being said, anthrogirl, you should get your news from other places than the NYT who has a notorious liberal, anti-gun stance. Then you could read about the good that is done by citizens with guns. You could also read about things like the women who was stabbed to death in her apartment by her estranged husband while the police who brought her there to get her stuff sat outside. Had she had a gun, she might have been able to defend herself like the woman in Randallstown a few years ago. She came back from taking her trash out to find her estranged husband in her living room with a baseball bat. (So much for restraining orders!). She pulled out a gun and shot him dead before he could beat her with the bat. Guns do more good than harm. Sign up for a NRA "Women On Target" or "Refuse To Be a Victim" course and find out the truth. Molon Labe!
anthrogirl April 3, 2014 at 09:21 pm
Henry. I know that as a woman with a gun in my home, I'm twice as likely to die by gun shot woundsRead More than a woman who has no gun in her home. I know from the recent SCOTUS case on guns and domestic violence that over 40% of all women shot dead in the US are killed in domestic violence situations where guns in their homes are used against them. I know from that same case that over 10 US women per week are shot dead by partners or ex-partners. And that does not include those who are shot and live. 84% of women shot dead in the world last year were killed right here in the US. That makes the US a dangerous place for women. Also, having a gun increases the success rate of suicide significantly, making gun deaths for women with guns even more likely. Suicide attempts with a gun are 80-90% effective compared to less than 10% success rate of overdose. I doubt that women are shooting rapists and attempted murders to death at rates that offset domestic shootings and suicides. Guns are a liability for women and intelligent women know this. Scared, uneducated, and/or weak women look to guns because they desire power over their fears and over others.... much the same as men.
anthrogirl April 3, 2014 at 09:32 pm
Remember that FL woman who was sentenced to 20 years in jail for shooting a warning shot when herRead More husband was threatened to attack her? Well, she appealed and got a new trial. The less than happy prosecutor said that she would now look to put this self defending gun shooting woman away for 60 years. Lesson here - if you're a woman and you use your gun when you feel threatened, be prepared to spend a big chunk of time in jail.

Mark I drove over the road for a few years and I once got a load of Harley's from Wisconsin going toRead More Texas anyway I had to sign a document saying that if I was 25 miles out of the range of my scheduled route that the FBI will be contacted and start tracking the vehicle. Plus the company that I drove for had a Quail com in the truck and could tell me were I was at within so many feet at any given time . I wonder why this company didn't have this . And this was 2007 when I last drove.
Dennis Gilpin March 31, 2014 at 11:14 pm
Steven, It probably did but like the plane " lost" over the Indian ocean if someone hasRead More an agenda and the ability to shut down any tracking device all this is useless. That kind of money will cause thieves to work overtime to eliminate any possibility of getting caught. That load can be sitting anywhere waiting to cool down and find a buyer.

What a senseless loss of life. I hope they find this murderer soon! My heart goes out to his familyRead More and I will share this so that others can look out for the vehicle in question.
Steven Spiegel March 28, 2014 at 12:12 pm
People are ruthless on the road these days. I don't understand what could go wrong going down theRead More road so bad that it would make someone want to kill someone. I have been in accidents were people have rear ended me and it didn't get me mad enough to want to kill them. I hope that they find this guy and prosecute him to the fullest . I just lost my father to cancer on New years eve and he was 84 and it hurt so bad . I could not imagine having my son murdered it would kill me !!! I hope that the family will heal soon but it takes time and I am sure the healing process would be greatly accelerated if they found those who were responsible .
