    While Mr. Sampson has a rapsheet dating back from his youth (nothing new to jean SenJo), I hope he was not in the business of abusing the young lady. Either way, we should not be too quick in our judgement but rather let the investigations continue and justice finds it way.

    Just so much violence, blasphemy, death, threats, anger, thievery, lying, cheating, spinning and destruction in little Dca these days its becoming very scary. I am beginning to believe that we are being collective punished by a higher being primarily due to the SILENCE of the churches (Bishop, Priests, Pastors etc) and those who know better on the many issues. I am a stunch catholic but now beginning to wonder why my church leaders have gone MOO-MOO on us. BISHOP Malzaire; Can you hear me now?? Good!

    Hopefully she wasn’t an battered woman. If yes, that man will never raise his hand(s) on her or any other woman. When investigation is complete if the woman was his victim hope she’s released and HE get arrested. If the reason was otherwise, well, justice should be served.

    I will await more information before casting judgement. I sincerely hope the gentleman at least stays above ground and recovers from his wounds. Let Justice run it’s course.
