    Do we think drugs might somehow have been involved? The shooting madness in this state is incredible. On second thought, the shooting and killing of that young man in Florida is pure madness too.

      And they won’t when they are let go on $750 bail.

        We’re not living in China, around here we don’t let people rot in jail before they have their fair trial and conviction.

          But they threw him in jail… and he hasn’t had a trial yet! How can that be, here, in America!!

        • Anonymous

          The pills he was carrying probably had a street value similar to the bail set for him, so how does that deter him from doing the same thing again? It doesn’t.

          I’m not suggesting keeping people in jail indefinitely, but the bail system is messed up. Individual commissioners come up with values without doing due diligence and the bail prices they set are all over the map.

          • Apprently they have TOO many trials, maybe they need to take it  a little more seriously when sentencing. 

          • Guest

            Bail is not punishment. It is to assure the accused will show up in court. I doubt that any judge thought this loser would “get away.”

    I knew it… time to move a regional office of the BDN to Lamoine…

    Haven’t the police figured out yet who fired the gun in Lamoine? Maybe I watch too much tv, but isn’t there a gunpowder residue test that tells you whether or not a person has fired a gun recently? I fail to understand why the police are having such a difficult time coming up with a simple statement about who shot the gun. I am now prepared to hear the litany of excuses for delay by the police, from all those who are happy to be kept in the dark, for as long as possible.

      You watch too much TV, let the police do their work and when ready they will let YOU know what is found.  Honest to gaaw (Karmin), people think they should know every move that LEO does before a conclusion is found.

        You’re right. The people have no right or reasonable expectation that they should have access to the truth. Move along, everyone. Nothing to see here!

      There could be a law enforcement officer or a relative involved and they are trying to figure out a way to cover it up.

        Cops or upstanding citizens in Ellsworth involved in drugs……..  No way!!!!!!

  • If community organizers were packing, would you have more respect?  “Our community needs help for its food kitchen,” said the community organizer as he coolly leveled his 9 mil.  “Go ahead, city councilman.  Make my day.”

  • Drug use –  what is the matter with us?  Do we have so little intestinal fortitude that we can’t give up that fleeting “high” when we know that it is going to result in big trouble sooner or later?

      I’ll bet he forgot they were in the car, the dunderhead. The police are trying to make themselves look relevant again, since they can’t piece together the multiple shooting/murder in Lamoine, so they were trailing him after his release from hospital, and pulled him over fully knowing his license was suspended, (they would have discovered this information weeks ago), and then, having “reasonable suspicion”, pulled the car apart until they found the pills.

        Of course you’re right, he probably didn’t know they were in his car. Someone must of left them in there. Those darn cops stopping him for no license, pulling the poor guys car apart, what’s it coming to.

    • Anonymous

      Nope they can’t. and they will rationalize their behavior because life has been “unfair” to them and they are just trying to “get theirs”.

  • Having not enough control over these drugs should bequest the govnt’ into being the only dispensor for all to be legal, or control it to reduce the criminal violence associated with it.

  • OldWench

    Just wait until LePage and the Republicans cut services and funding to help the thousands upon thousands of addicts who actually want help.  We’re going to see this drug related violence sky rocket like we’ve never seen before.  NO neighborhood or community will be safe.

         Really? And you are certain of that, right?

    • Anonymous

      Perhaps you havent been paying attention, but crime has been on a steady increase since a certain clinic was put in. Im sure its coincedence though

    •  Funding’s being cut as we speak and yes…you are correct. There will be a literal crime wave when this goes into effect. A good indicator is the sharp rise in firearm sales going on all over Maine. The fun part is….you’re gonna pay for it all through property tax which is going through the roof with this Governor.

  • Well he was shot so I would assume he had got meds from the hospital maybe they need to look into that and see if maybe they were his and not in a bottle? I dunno benefit of the doubt :@)

      ” drugs that he had not been prescibed”. Just gotta read a little.

      Didn’t the hospital just give him tylenol? I thought that he was all over facebook about the stupid doctors and nurses who wouldn’t give him anything stronger for pain.

  • Anonymous

    One word…incorrigible.

    Here’s what you’ll hear about this guy and the one that died and the other one who is still in the hospital…”Yes he’s made mistakes, but haven’t we all, and deep down he’s really a good person and is trying to change his ways and needs to be given another chance.” Well I call BS. Eventually those “mistakes” add up to simply being a bad seed who is a detriment to society and needs to be removed for a long period of time. I’m sorry, this is harsh, but it’s reality. The same bad actors commit the vast majority of crimes. I’m sick of people calling crimes “mistakes”.

  • If he hadn’t been involved in a shooting this wouldn’t even be an article.  Clutching at straws to keep an already bickering public at attention to the case.
