YES!! Now let's just hope justice prevails. It was senseless to kill the officer over the bill. What is wrong with people today? My heart goes out to the family and friends of the officer.

My heart-felt thoughts/prayers go out to Trooper Wesley Brown, his family and friends. I am so happy and relieved to know that these dangerous individuals have been caught and taken off of the streets and give thanks to the Maryland Police Officers/Troopers who did a good job.

Since all 3 were from Seat Pleasant, makes me wonder if this was more about a younger guy who was positive in the community chumping two slightly older punks.

These sensitive 'thugs' probably couldn't take this younger cat setting them straight. Probably were jealous, on some 'who he think he is, I remember him from around the way, he think he the man now cause he 5-0' type of nonsense.

Murdered this young man, this man who ran a mentoring program for young boys all because they were insecure. I mean, who else but an insecure male kills a man over nothing?

I am so glad these men have been caught...certainly an answer to my prayer. All of this over a dispute about his check. One thing is for sure, this was the most expensive dinner this guy has ever had! What a shame...

How do you say electric chair bound. If this had happened in Virginia, you would not have to worry about paying to keep these killers feed and housed for life.

Anthony Milton never made it into applebees.... people need to know their facts before believe the BS by the media...He 100% innocent.. Police just needed to make the public happy. And because hes black, that will shut people up.....As long as they have somebody the police is happy.. because the public is happy.. Please do not ruin this man name.. Thank You!
