A federal judge sentenced Mohammad Hassan Khalid of Ellicott City to five years in prison for aiding a group of people who were planning terror attacks in Europe. File|Patch

I heard it all associating with the terrorist group was like a video game . This young man should beRead More sentenced for the same amount of time as the rest . Know he can get out of prison with a bad taste in his mouth and blow up some Americans . After 911 there should be no deals made with terrorists .

Hopefully he gets deported back to Pakistan after he gets out of jail.

Please liberate us from our oppressive State government, cyber warriors!!!
Don O'Neill April 18, 2014 at 05:24 pm
It sounds as though Senator Catherine Pugh is pining for a job in the private sector. Here is whatRead More she said: 1. “Our government doesn’t move as quickly as the private sector ... and the private sector isn’t moving as quickly as it should be,” Sen. Catherine Pugh, D-Baltimore, said in an interview. 2. “I look at the government from the perspective of a business,” Pugh said. “... What do want the state to look like three years from now? I don’t think we do enough of that kind of thinking and planning.” Let me identify some of the issues that Senator Catherine Pugh and her colleagues in Annapolis should be thinking about on behalf of the citizens of Maryland. 1. Stop pretending that Maryland is the leader in state Health Care web sites. 2. Stop pretending that Maryland is the center of excellence for Cyber Security. 3. Stop pretending that the Chesapeake Bay is clean. 4. Stop pretending that Maryland's soft position on marijuana is supported by its citizens. 5. Stop contemplating the use of fracking. 6. Stop wasting time and money on Bond Bill earmarks. 7. Stop sweeping the Baltimore City prison scandal under the rug. 8. Stop pretending that Maryland is winning the jobs race with Virginia. 9. Stop pretending that Maryland has an adult candidate for Governor. 10. Stop pretending that Governor O'Malley is viable candidate for President.

This is what happens when we don't teach teenagers in high school to grow up and be adults.

RON Ostrodamus April 19, 2014 at 03:11 am
The death penalty certainly cuts down on the record number of incarcerations in America. Enough ofRead More this liberal crap on humane punishment. The word "humane' never enters the minds of these cold blooded killers. What is going to happen if another bombing takes place outside of Texas? What is going to happen with the next airplane hijacking, or Boston?

Don, the comments were made at sentencing, not at trialso it hss no bearing on her conviction.

Cee Cee, all big businesses started as SMALL businesses! Now if a CEO and his board agree toRead More compensate him/her multi millions, who are we to bash them? That's their right as a private company. If you don't like it, then boycott the company. That's your right. And let me ask you: When was the last time you paid half of your income in taxes? Do you know that for every dollar a business owner makes, he has to set aside half of it for Uncle Sam??? My guess is that you've never truly run your own business. If you did, it would change you.
CeeCee April 19, 2014 at 08:04 am
Life--Stop guessing because you don't do it well. In my experience, if a business is paying half ofRead More its income in taxes, it is doing something wrong: did not plan properly; is mis-managed; did not hire the right employees or the necessary professionals; is not reaching the appropriate market(s); and/or, is not providing a valued and/or quality product or service. If a business is experiencing any of this, the state of Maryland is very generous with the tax dollars it collects and offers educational or consulting services to assist small business owners for little or no cost. Not to mention in elaborate detail, taxes afford businesses: education & ACA/healthcare--single payer would be better--for our fellow citizens and highways & public transportation. But if you prefer doing it all by yourself then it will not only change you, you could end up paying with your life.
Gary Elwards April 19, 2014 at 09:50 am
CeeCee, it is not so hard to assume that you have never run a business. If you did you would knowRead More that businesses do not pay only Federal and State income taxes. They also pay real estate taxes (yes, even if they lease), personal property taxes (for which they are required to pay a fee (tax) just to file), unemployment taxes, social security and Medicare taxes to match what each employee pays, licensing fees (tax), the new "rain tax", and on and on.

HF the charges were dropped. There is a problem because and I quote from the Patch"Lewis saysRead More he never noticed "No Free Re-Fill" signs and admits he had refilled his drink without paying on other occasions" and "On-site construction worker Chris Lewis told WCSC News he didn't know refills at the VA Medical Center in downtown Charleston weren't free."Where did you read that he knew he had to pay for it? No where in the article does he said he knew it.

Bryan Harz April 18, 2014 at 07:20 pm
Just read they can tell what appliances are on by the type of load your residence is drawing.Read More Motors, heating elements are higher loads than consumer electronics. It seems like they can't tell the difference between the levels of loads, but not positive they can tell the difference between the individual levels of loads. Like if your TV and PC had the same or close power supply watt ratings, they wouldn't know which one you turn on. Just that something drawing a particular amount of current was turned on. That's what I can tell.
Bryan Harz April 18, 2014 at 07:26 pm
Looks like the RF output of the meters is 1 watt which is around the exposure of a microwave oven,Read More but not half as much as a baby monitor.
