Mother blames racism for son’s $1 million bail
– The mother of an 18-year-old man being held on $1 million bail in two alleged Carroll County rapes blamed racism for what she calls excessive bail.
“I just don’t understand how a judge can say a million dollars right off the bat,” Bless Queen said. “Who sets a million-dollar bail on an 18-year-old kid? I really feel that it is prejudiced.”Noting the alleged victim is a 16-year-old white girl, Queen said, “She’s white, and it’s a small town.”
Her son, Nicholas Queen, of New Windsor, was at a party in Taneytown July 15, smoking marijuana outside the house with Fidel Melo, 20, a Hispanic, and a 16-year-old girl, according to charging documents.The girl refused a kiss from Queen, saying she had a boyfriend and “was not going to do this with him,” according to the documents.
On the way back to the house, Melo held her down while he and Queen raped her, prosecutors alleged. Kelley Galvin, an assistant state’s attorney, had asked the court to deny bail, but said $1 million was fair.“This is the rape of a minor,” she told The Examiner on Tuesday. “They were acting in collaboration, allegedly. I think a million is quite appropriate.”
Queen’s bail was set in July in District Court and upheld in September when his lawyers tried to reduce it. The day the lawyers sought reduced bail, prosecutors charged Queen with the rape of a 15-year-old Taneytown girl. The prosecutors said Queen and Melo committed that rape with William M. Smith, 24, and that it occurred in mid-July. Smith was charged with second-degree rape, and his bail was set at $500,000.
Queen’s attorneys, Bradley Bauhof and Jill Swerdlin, say he was not present when the second rape allegedly took place.The Rev. Jekia Ledbetter, the pastor at the Baltimore church the Queens attend, called the case one of the worst injustices she’s seen.“I think it’s worse than Jena 6,” she said. “I don’t think he can have a fair trial in Carroll County.”
Injustice? So the adult rapes 2 kids, gets a million dollars bail, and this is injustice? Is being black suppose to be a get out jail card? White or black, anyone who rapes kids should not get out of jail, ever!
And did you here one person express any outrage or remorse over the kids that got raped? Did you here any sympathy or concern for the girls that got raped? Nope, and you won’t, because to liberals and the bigoted present day civil rights movement, it is all about the color of your skin, not right and wrong. And that makes them a racist.
And I’ll say them same thing I said about Jena 6. Until the groups like the NAACP find the courage to fight the root causes of the plight of urban community, the current start of the black family is unlikely to get any better. All this just further illustrates the utter lack of any core principles in liberalism as racism (and discrimination, terrorism, violence, and oppression) is only bad in the liberal eyes if whites and Christians are practicing it. In the end, racism will never go away until both sides are held to the same set of standards. And as long as one side is allowed to discriminate freely, as long as the standard of right and wrong is influenced on both sides by the color of the skin, it just sows the seeds of hate for a different generation. Dr. King had it right. People should be judged by the content of their character, not the color of their skin. This is the only thing that will end racism.

I am so sick of people with more concern for the criminal then the victim. The damn skin color should be irrelevant. People that rape kids should never get out of jail, ever. If you want them out of jail on bond because of the color of their skin, that makes you a racist. And if you care more about the black rapist then the white victim, that really makes you a racist. Right and wrong should have nothing to do with black or white.
