    People should really get there facts straight before blasting someones business all over the fucking news. Did you ever think about his family? Or the fact that they have no evidence what so ever and he got arrested on his name alone?? He might have made some bad choices in his life but anyone that really knows him could tell you that he completely turned his life around was working full time and going to school full time has his own place and is married. Hes not living off the state or robbing people to get money. The only crime here is that he tried to be a friend to some junkie piece of shit crack head bank robber and good old york county was stupid enough to take his word.

    Really seems legit. God forbid that a strong black man tries to get his life together and do right but the first time someone speaks his name they arrest his. Its absolute bullshit and the stupid bitch that wrote this artical should be ashamed of herself. People wonder why once someone gets arrested that they never change or turn their life around and it always get blamed on the person, well look what happens they dont stand a chance! People always want to judge first and ask questions later and it makes me fucking sick. Good job York county on taking the word of a junkie bank robbing crack head and arresting a GOOD man just because your to lazy to do real poilce work!

    justsayin, wonder if your response would be different if it was you or someone you care about was going through this. O, I bet the real you would shine in a manner that is unbecoming of your own judgement, that would render you guilty by your own standards. The thing is this, before one can judge,1st- all the facts need to come out. 2nd be careful of judging when not one, i mean not one is sinless.

      I understand that someone may be going through this and be innocent….all I was saying was "Ginger" sounded very uneducated and dumb….given all the language she used. It's not always what you say, it's how you say it. If you want to me heard and listened to then you better find a better way of expressing yourself!

      Love people who have the bravery to make hateful comments online and anonymously. Bet you would not have the nerve to say this to people's face. People who hide behind these comments are jokes. I like the newspaper and online forums that force you to login in through your facebook account. Can't hide in those instance. Cowards easily judge.
