Kai Hagen: Frederick County’s new vigilante-in-chief. Hagen had absolutely no business and even less authority, interfering with a police matter that was in progress.

Hagen placed himself, his wife, the gentleman motorist who had been pulled over and last but not least the sheriff’s deputy in danger. How easily could this encounter have ended tragically, were not the deputy and the motorist the voices of reason? Hagen made baseless assumptions and decided to interfere in a situation that was none of his business.

Question. Isn’t Kai Hagen guilty of the same type of profiling he so self righteously claims to be concerned about preventing?

“Isn’t Kai Hagen guilty of the same type of profiling he so self righteously claims…” writers having problems with adverbs reflecting omniscience is a lot more widespread than I thought.


“Tlkn’ bout beating a dead horse”


I was dubious of the "if you see something, say something" mentality from the get go. It fosters an Us and Them way of thinking.



Allow me if you will to put something into prospective.....

Let’s say you go to a nice sit down restaurant. And you order a coke. You’re thirsty, so you’re drinking a lot. When you finish your first glass, you see the glass is 90% full of ice.

Server brings you another coke. You finish that. And again, glass is 90% full of ice. Server now needs to bring you a third refill.

See, had there not been so much ice in the glass, there would of been more coke. And the server would not have had to do 3 refills. With less ice, so many refills would not have been needed and it would have been less work for the server.

Now let’s transfer this mindset to comment moderating here.

The more you allow people like Gabshorn and CD Reid to troll and bully others in the comments - they more they do it. And the more the individuals they are targeting reply in-kind. Making MORE WORK for YOU.

Maybe you don’t mind the burden. I don’t know. Or maybe you do. If you do mind, then start creating and enforcing zero tolerance policy and doing something about the trolling and bullying from members like CDReid and Gabrielshorn.

Also, I have noticed that you have been better with removing posts from CDReid and Gabrielshorn. Please know that It has not gone unnoticed, and myself and others THANK YOU for that!

Best regards,

Pot, meet kettle.


Who won from 1999 - 2016?


You did. Surprise


Not sure, they didn’t let us use inner-net in prison




Thanks. I do know the difference, not sure how that happened :)


This letter reminds me of the time Kirbie Delaughter made a fool of himself at national level.

Pretty sure Stink Eye Key learned from the Best - Kirbie Delaughter. Everyone agree?





Our esteemed lead commenter was not so much into childish name calling until certain people bullied her into submission on that issue. Seems like she couldn't beat them, so she joined them.


That’s correct three.

I commented here.

And there’s gabs, right behind me. Unprovoked. Childish.


Confused what Trumpkins has to do with my Kirbie Delaughter analogy.

Gabs is unhinged


Hard to tell if our leader is serious.


Three wrote “hard to tell if our leader is serious”.

Exactly. That’s my online persona.

Considering this is only the World Wide Web,

Considering the comments have no bearing on any of the commenters health, well being of family, and prosperity......that’s just it!!! For myself, and the majority here ....... it’s NOT serious. It’s not serious because we have lives beyond the comments. But, some commenters here don’t know how to enjoy themselves. They don’t know how to chill out and go with the flow. This is the only life they know, they don’t realize they’re the one with the problem.

“Plagiarizing” “plagiarizing”, like they’re saving the day! Something that was done in good nature, let along something with no copyright. So far off from ever knowing a happy go lucky quick witted personality they’re not able to see that hey, life can be fun.

“Oh my God.” “Oh my god”. “Kelly just wrote about the sheriff.” “Oh my god”. “Somebody do something”. “ nevermind, here, I’ll save the sheriff, stand back everyone”. Don’t want your past haunting you? Don’t want your name drug through mud? Then don’t screw up.

Seriously, i need me a good spankin. I’m beggin!


Does this mean you're not really running for sheriff? Should I take down my lawn sign?
