PART TWO WILL APPEAR SOON

A few reactions to this crime update of Lexington Park from a retired law officer:

What a wonderful place to live.  It sound like the fences of the S. Md pre-release camp have vanished.  Some of the story is in what they shoplifted – lipstick to hide the meth teeth, or what they scratched on the hood of the car – you dirty rat! – though that would involve having a GED to spell it.  I’m not sure where Shangri-La is, but if I had a condo, I would sell cheap.  FDR would be shocked with his vision bastardized….
So – one must ask – 
What is DSS doing to help the needy, homeless, downtrodden, filthy, pitiful who roam like Balt City rats looking for an opportunity?  Where is their outreach and efforts to deal with these people?  Doesn’t their budget have funds/program to do this, or do the desk employees consume it all?  I believe that it is their job to “break this cycle.’

Where is the Chamber of Commerce on these business crimes?  Are they offering input or resources – or a list of so so cops who want OT?  It would be shameful to have your chamber clients victimized over and over.  With all the robbing and pillaging, I wouldn’t patronize any of these businesses.  Would rather starve to death, run out of gas, or pee pants.

Where is the prosecutor who is kinder and gentler who lets these locusts out to feed on the public.  Like mosquitos biting the unaware.  Dumping the jails out/reducing sentences only perpetuates crime. 

Maybe a state’s Atty or judge can get jumped – oh that’s right, gated communities don’t let “those people” in – unless – “Hola, Estoy aqui para trabajar para el juez Smith”
What does parole and probation have to say?  Why do they walk among us?  Seeing these flakes once a month doesn’t help.  I wonder if their arrest photo looks like the glam photo in the agent’s file?  All they have to do is petition the court for a warrant.  Can you have 10-15 swings of the bat?
Just what are the cops doing?  Frequent flyers warrant ready arrests.  Warning them doesn’t work.  Spitting on the sidewalk and getting arrested may save a life that night….  

Where is the debriefing to figure out who has a gun, selling drugs, or who done the robbery down the street?  A few $ of informant money may contribute to a drug buy, but may also close a case.  

Where is the drug unit/task force who should be engaged in getting these people arrested?  Working a gravy job M-F may not make it possible for the drug cops to get involved.  Besides, that’s a dangerous area to work.
What is the sheriff/district court doing with all of the endless bench warrants for FTA, etc? 

Check some time and see how many bench warrants are issued – most for a PR release, then FTA.  Call the district court after a court day and you will find 10-15 issued – each court day.  Ask sheriff how many bench warrants they have on file.  Astounding….
Glad to see Wendell Ford is following his father’s legacy.
I appreciate your article.  If I ever have to go near the Northern Neck, I’ll drive up through Jersey and take 95 south to avoid Southern Maryland.
