    “Take a Wild Guess” are you serious!!! I’ll take a wild guess your a damn hypocrite. Bel Air has a woman murdered outside her home execution style across from Festival…. Dagger Comments are MUTE. Bel Air can’t wait to stack up the stories to cover it up and sweep it under the rug.

    Dagger commentators like you are a joke; amateur trolls at best. Just waiting for a story you want, versus what is actually happening to race bait. Now get a job and stop making your mom microwave meals for you in the basement. Wonder why we have’t heard anything about the Lady from Bel Air…. maybe because it only supports the fact that as Bel Air grows larger within its bubble your going to have to deal with acts of violence throughout the county in pleasantville.

      All the mayonnaise sitting in chicken sammich restaurants and catholic church ain’t got muffin’s to say bout dat.

      They love to point they nose up at the route 40 but when dope fiends start doping all day long, they don’t know what to do.

      Rick, unconfirmed initial reports of the shooting indicate that the victim in the south Bel Air apartment complex was shot in the back of the head. If it was a domestic incident there would have been a good chance the incident would have occurred inside one of the apartments. Again, not being on the need to know list I have not heard any information to support robbery as a motive. There is probably a fair chance that she was targeted. If that was the case it could have happened anywhere at anytime. Before we write off Bel Air we need to find out all of the facts before we start a panic. I still maintain that as a whole Bel Air and Harford County is a pretty safe environment. This is mainly due to the many fine police professionals that the county and towns are blessed to have.

    Maybe the victim knows that if he talks, him and his entire family will become a grease spot. Has anyone ever thought of that? Does anyone actually believe that the police can protect someone from harm indefinitely? If a victim is uncooperative, the victim either has good reason to be or is going to handle it himself…..
