Were these "adult-size" children?...
Laura M. December 10, 2012 at 07:23 PM
that's my question. perfect time for kids to be getting on the bus to school...

7:30 am, backpacks? School children getting lunch money? 8 people and not a description of any of them as to race size age?

I'll give you three guesses. First 2 don't count. Isn't it wonderful, how our demographics are changing? Such a positive development! Soon, you won't be able to tell the difference between Baltimore City and County.

Now, let's not be too quick to judge. These are probably a group of good "teens", even "Honor Students", who just collectively made a "mistake". That woman had a lot of nerve carrying a money order for that much money around with her! It might even be all her fault for tempting these good kids just on their way to school! Maybe she should be locked up for contributing to the delinquency of these minors!. She's probably a racist anyway....

Something doesn't sound right about this one........
john merkle December 11, 2012 at 05:01 AM
Sure thing...the money order popped out of her purse, just screamed to be taken...lol...
M. Sullivan December 11, 2012 at 01:47 PM
Will there be any follow up on this disgraceful story? Maybe even some more details?

A group of eight people? Back in the day, that used to be called a "gang". Where's Officer Krupke (West Side Story) when you need him?

They're only able to publish what the police give them.

Need to put an end to MTA and let these filthy animals stay in their own little crap holes and act like animals. Everyday the same crap inner city trash roaming the streets causing trouble and praying in the weak. When is enough going to be enough? We need a rights to defend ourselves and our property.

I live very close to where this happened. I am sickened by what my neighborhood has turned into in the last 5 years. I chose not to live in the city for a reason but it doesn't seem to matter anymore as the crime and chaos that these ignorant people create has moved into the county. I should be able to have whatever I like in my purse, including a money order, without the fear of being robbed. These individuals are a disgrace to humanity and deserve to rot in a cell. And, really? You can't catch someone that's riding on bus? A

Any news on this story, Nayana?

Just put in a call to police, will update when I have more.
Nayana Davis (Editor) January 07, 2013 at 09:51 PM
Police spokeswoman said there's no new information.
M. Sullivan January 07, 2013 at 09:59 PM
Thanks for checking. I certainly hope Baltimore County's Finest aren't going to let this case just die. If this sort of thing isn't prosecuted, it will only lead to many more.

Don't MTA busses have cameras? I hope the cameras were working and the video has a timestamp. At least the police would have a picture of the assilants.

.... or maybe the actual crime did not happen.
