Please continue to post / cover anything on the follow-up of the murder and abuse case of Andrew Griffin. This was one of the most horrific cases of child abuse in the Towson community, and my fear is that over the years, the news stories will become buried and this boy eventually forgotten. Thank you for your coverage on Susan Griffin's appeal - please keep us updated. People need to know and remember this story.

Bryan, sorry you got caught up in this cyber- stalking which is defined under MD law, 555.c.
My suspicions were confirmed that this person would not stop unless there was some intervention.
The events of the last two days involving AZ and Baltimore City only convince me that people who choose to act in such a reprehensible manner, must be held accountable.
Robust dialog and debate are at the forefront of our nations history as shown in the colonist open dissent of British rule prior to the birth of the nation.
I have been involved as a blogger for some time and have taken many hits in the past based on the various agendas which is a legitimate part of the process . I even allowed this person to comment even though I knew that a lack of response would only embolden them.
Their mindless thought that these types of comments will give credence to their views only validates their immaturity.
Hopefully your action and that of Patch along with my response will put this to rest.
You and your editors stood up for the integrity of this site and that is commendable.
