3 held in Pr. George's home invasion

By Debbi Wilgoren

Prince George's County police say they have arrested three men in a home invasion Thursday night in Fort Washington.

Cpl. Henry Tippett said the men entered a home in the 700 block of Calvert Lane about 10 p.m., surprising a woman and her 12-year-old son, who were inside. The woman and youth fled to safety, and police surrounded the house for about 30 minutes before the three men inside surrendered, Tippett said.

No one was injured, and no additional details were available.

I know they hate when a plan doesn't come through.

Some guys will do anything to avoid working for a living.

You're taking a HUGE chance invading a home in the USA where everyone and his retarded third cousin has a gun or two or three. This ain't Japan, Iceland, Belgium or South Korea where you know the people in the house aren't gonna be coming at you with both barrels.

Hard work won't kill you.

You break into an empty house: 3-5 years with maybe some suspension.
You break into an occupied hourse: 10-20 years.
Would be crooks will then make sure a house is empty if they don't want to do the time.

I would rather have a man who dig ditches and works for McD for a living than one who murder and rob people for their stuff. At least I know the man is trying to do the right thing.

All women need to reject all thugs. Don't sleep with them, talk to them or give them the time of day. They got nothing to offer you except pain, misery, danger, worry, etc. You don't want your kids getting caught up in it. SWAT team knocking down your door at 4am.

13 MURDERS IN 13 DAYS IN P.G. COUNTY.

WHY WOULD ANYONE WANT TO LIVE THERE?

I MOVED OUT 30 YEARS AGO AFTER NUMEROUS BREAK-INS.

Maryland is very unfriendly to the 2nd amendment, and Prince George's is one of the most 2A-unfriendly counties in the state. Although this crime occurred in a less crime-ridden section, the fact is that almost all the really violent crime occurs right along the DC border, not in the majority of the county, much of which is rural or upper middle class. Orindary citizens need to regain their right to keep and bear arms for self protection in Maryland, and shall issue concealed carry permits would go a long way to helping those who are the targets of car jackers or those attempting sexual assault. It works everywhere else, but Maryland racists don't trust black people with their rights.

PG's law-abiding citizens need to regain their constitutional right to keep and bear arms for self protection, and shall issue concealed carry permits would go a long way to helping those who are the targets of crime. It works everywhere else, so why not Maryland? Is racism partly to blame?
