What Larry Hogan has been been doing as governor has been out in the open for years and a conscious choice was made not to address it because of who and how many of them didnt want to hear about it. That's the truth. Tell me I'm wrong.

I’m so heartbroken. Andrew Casciano, the man police filmed themselves assaulting in a hospital, has allegedly died from suicide today. I can’t help to think how much pain, hurt and anguish this incident and lawsuit with the city caused him.
