Baltimore Hebrew Congregation hosts Barry Simms

Baltimore Hebrew Congregation Brotherhood's morning winter breakfast meeting featured the interesting Barry Simms, Investigative Reporter, a member of the "I Team," WBAL.

With an interesting background investigative reporting, Barry shared some of his impressions regarding several investigative matters.

Beginning the program, was a video about an alleged drunk driving case. A young military veteran, married three years, critically injured less than a mile from his home, is now learning how to live and take care of himself again.

The drunk driver was driving on a suspended drivers license. He refused to take a Breathalyzer test.

The veteran's injuries were serious enough that a mandatory Breathalyzer test should have been ordered.

Note:

After years, justice did prevail. This drunk driver was sentenced to serve a six year term in jail.

In regard to the injured young veteran, he still has a long way to recuperate. However, he does have a very positive, "thumbs-up" attitude.

We all wish this injured veteran, a speedy and "complete" recovery!

Other topics were discussed. In regard to the Columbia Mall shootings, repeated television viewings were difficult for the bereaved families, friends as well as workers at the Columbia Mall and shoppers.

Thank you Barry, for your interesting presentation.
