Making his rounds at 7;24 pm?

Not uncommon. We get mail as late at 8:30pm sometimes.

Yes, I remember receiving mail that late in some cities.

The PO does not treat its peon employees very well.

Zero information, but I would guess that this was a black-on-black crime.

I used to work with a guy who started out as a mailman walking his route.

I recall his once telling me that the mailman was the one person who could go about anywhere without worrying about being assaulted etc.

I guess it wasn’t true.

Most likely black on black violence. Life is cheap—poor guy doing his job and then gets popped. Sick society.

Notice the story was published by the British paper. Seems like a lot of the bad stories are first published by the British papers and not locals.

That may be so, but in some locales (such as the one here) one or two postal workers in the main office act like it's some kind of major favour to have to move their wide loads a few steps away from the counter and collect your mail just to step back and hand it over to you. Including demanding "proper ID" each time even though you've been going there for several years on.

Not saying anything about the individual in question, mind, but do not make the mistake of thinking that just because someone works for the postal service there is nothing else going on there. In this case, I would guess the neighborhood, and if true, then the postal service would have been well within its rights to refuse delivery due to an unsafe environment.

Prince Georges county has become a hazard since turning into a ghetto annex of DC populated by cannibal Hottentots.

I should add: the individual in this article, not the individual(s) local here, which specific ones have all the warmth of an old cowflop on ice, and look like that one individual behind the counter that the one-eyed little guy was trying to explain about the ‘reports’ or ‘forms’ to in the movie “Monsters, Inc”.

Well, I’ll be interested to see if this gets as much attention as the death of that Census worker got.

What has happened to America?

When the Supreme Court kicked God out of the schools and the public square back in 1962 and 1963, apparently God took the hint and left?

What did the cannibal Hottentots ever do to you, that you would compare them to the barbarous denizens of Prison George’s County?

I grew up in Cheverly. That area is outside of it and somewhat industrial. Very sad.

“Murder of a federal government employee while in the course of his duties, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Sections 1114 and 111.”

Bottom line, is if they find out who did this, their sentence will start with 20 years, and add the maximum of any other charge beyond that.

Their used to be special circumstances for robbery or murder of a Post Office employee, and they were extra harsh.

used to be the mailman, the phone guy and tv guy got a pass from the ghetto trash if they wanted to continue to get their welfare check, talk on the phone and watch tv...

now days in the EBT Nation, their cards are replenished at the welfare office, their 0bamaphone gets it's minutes from the welfare office and only the tv guy has to show up to install or repair their stuff

Why do you ask? Has AG holder determined that he has threatened to expose some aspect of Barky's past? Expect him to die in a spectacularly fiery car crash very soon then if that is true.

“cannibal hottentots”? Is that a synonym for DIMocRATs? It is sad that there are so many street apes roaming the urban jungle.

Prince George’s County. Forty years ago it was pleasant, bucolic even. Now, I would avoid it even in the daytime. Demographic change.

The Daily Mail used an AP article for the basis of its article. The story was reported by several domestic sources.

Probably because having a job is seen as "acting white".

Very sad story. Saw this on FOX 45 News out of B’more. Of course, the union clowns used the story as an excuse to complain about being overworked.

Who was the last wealthy person to get the death penalty in the US?

Claus von Bülow? Conviction in the first trial was reversed and he was found not guilty in both his retrials.

Michael Skakel? Granted a new trial by a Connecticut Judge and released on $1.2 million bail; the decision is now being appealed by the prosecution.

Claudine Longet? Convicted of misdemeanor negligent homicide.

O. J. Simpson?
