Former Prince George's County Executive Jack Johnson was indicted Monday on eight federal charges of conspiracy, extortion and bribery as well as tampering with a witness and evidence. Authorities say Johnson took bribes from developers seeking favorable treatment, and he and his wife attempted to cover it up.

Legalise Marijuana and end the senseless drug related violence.

@marilynmanson - I doubt that weed had anything to do with it, but it let you post a lovely moronic statement anyway. Feel better?

Another "black" eye for the PG community. What a shame, I had such high hopes for 2011.

The fact of the matter is a lot of the young black males in PG County are like animals. They lay and wait and then attack people. They are lazy and have no ambition. Their parents encourage their behavior because they lie to protect their little animals. PG county need to have to stricter gun laws. If you have an unlicensed firearm you should get 5 years in jail, no questions asked.

What's the total so far in 2011?

I'm all for registering & licensing firearms. If you've got a problem with that because it interferes with your precious rights then I wonder what you're up to.

If you're a PG County resident, would you stay there if the opportunity to move to another county/town/neighborhood presented itself?
