Drug-seeking Pr. William home invaders had wrong address, police say

Josh White

Two men kicked in the rear door of a Lake Ridge townhouse Thursday afternoon and forced their way inside. They grabbed a 29-year-old woman, shoved her into an upstairs bedroom, placed her face down on the floor, and demanded to know where the drugs were.

Only, there weren't any drugs, Prince William County police said. The men broke into the wrong house, said police, and terrorized a mother who was home caring for her three young children -- all under the age of five.

"The suspects looked around in the residence and left when they did not find what they were looking for," police said in a news release Thursday afternoon. "The suspects were in the wrong house."

The mother and her three children were unharmed. Police said the suspects, described only as black males, did not appear to have weapons.

Anyone with information about the home invasion is asked to call Prince William County Crime Solvers at 703-670-3700 or 1-866-411-TIPS.

At least it wasn't the county police, as it was in Prince George's County, in the Berwyn Heights fiasco . . .

Fine upstanding boys. Their mothers did a great job with them. Pops too. Oh I'm sorry their Pops is somewhere in Mexico or North Dakota under an assumed name.

When the cops catch them and they will they should sterilize them. That will bring their aggressive anti-social behavior down quite a bit.

When you're in junior high school that's the time to reserve your cell in your nearest federal penitentiary. Don't put it off. They fill up fast. You have worked hard to be a thug. It's time to reward yourself. Maybe you'll get lucky & your pals from the hood will be on the same cellblock.

Don't forget to drop out of school. I mean, what's the point, right? Work is for suckers, wimps & girls. You want the easy, fast money, right? WORD.

Tough guys going after women & kids. Be fun to put 'em in solitary confinement for a year & see how macho & cool they are then. No access to phones, internet, visits for 12 months. No weights. We don't need thugs with more muscles. That's just crazy.

Then when solitary is over make him work 6 1/2 days a week like a slave. That'll scare him big time! The last thing these knuckleheads want to do is work an honest job. That's the worst torture you can do to them. They would rather read a 650-pg book than work.

But I guess we can't do this. Oh noooooo. Society feels sorry for these thugs, criminals, high school droputs, gang members, drug dealers, etc. They're just misunderstood. They need Jesus in their life.

Black males looking for a drug stash? Shocking. This is what happens when you let the thugs of the DC area run wild. We need to lock these pieces of trash behind bars and leave them there. And not in one of those cushy prisons, either. We need to start building real prisons, like the ones used in the Middle East and other parts of the world.

I'm sure it was all an innocent mistake- see, the guys were collecting for their church and went in the BACK door by mistake, which unfortunately was jammed (at first.)
After having a good laugh about their mistake, what the guys said wasn't "where is the drugs," but "Where is Doug?"(the 3rd guy who was in the bathroom.) All a misunderstanding! Either that or the lady busted her own door so she could blame it on the BLACK MAN, the racist b***h!

Either that, or...the mother should'nt have bought that house, so it was HER fault. Those 3 guys I'm sure were fine young men, maybe if theyre caught we can have Jesse Sharpton down to have a protest march, and a candlelight vigil. Heard of the "Jena Six?" They'll call them the "Lake ridge Three."
We shall overcome!!!
