Scott is right. He broke no law and the photos he released were already cleared for not being usedRead More as evidence. I think he deserved punishment but I thought the one week suspension was the right move. To be moved to Athol was a crap move by the State Police or whomever ordered it.

It's too bad that there weren't sequential pictures showing Tsarnaev with a red laser dot on hisRead More head, and then him laying on the ground with his head split open like a dropped melon.

Nothing wrong with showng the photos! Good job Sgt. Too bad they didn't show pictures of American'sRead More with their legs blown off or the people that were killed. They "EXECUTED" an MIT Police Officer! We were all upset and had no sympathy for these 2. Too put his picture on the cover of a magazine is "OUTRAGEOUS"!

The spineless rodent who murdered Tyler Zanco is still at large. I would hope that, even inRead More Massachusetts, this takes preference over flippin' shoplifters. If I DO spot one of these hardened criminals in the photos, however, I will immediately call 911, and go into self-imposed lockdown!

Where was the gas leak and construction? Details would be helpful, rather having someone blame theRead More TM's for not accepting another business locating in a place that would create more traffic!
Ron Swanson April 2, 2014 at 12:36 pm
raymay, nice assumptions you just made. I actually do ride the bus and train 5 days a week to andRead More from work. I do deal with the delays in the winter while waiting outside and ride with all the diverse people. I would be a short walk to the Green Line stop at College Ave, and still don't think it's worth the money. Would be convenient, but as stated above, would rather have the money go to improving the existing system (so we don't have cold and hot weather delays) or to expand in areas much less served than ours. Good day sir.

There isn't a day that goes by that I am not thankful for our firefighters and police. EspeciallyRead More in Easton, where they saved my life, after I was in a horrible car wreck. Very sad every Time I hear one has fallen. This time it's 2! They save us every day and it seems too many folks just take it for granted. Events like this in Boston are very disturbing. God bless these men who ran in to save lives. They had to run in while everyone else had to run out. I hope these men's families are well cared for. If not, then let's make sure they are.
Julie the Jarhead March 30, 2014 at 12:24 pm

So Bosotn Fire just reported that the fire was started by welders working next door at 296 BeaconRead More St. Welders, working without a permit, and no aplication on file for a permit, so no fire detail there during the work being done, on a day with 50mph+ winds. Which I'm sure would not have been allowed on that day had a permit tried to be pulled because of those winds. So our brothers died that day because some company and building owner we're to frigin ignorant to follow laws. Absoulte BULLSHIT.

i think we should allow more folks who hate our society to immigrate here! The Liberal way! andRead More Matthew what srpska said makes perfect sense! why don't you do a little investigating and see what is going on in England instead of doing the all too common Liberal head in the sand response!

Fatty.......I could care less about what England is doing, not our problem. Oh and by the way. I'mRead More an Independent. Wouldn't help the Liberals. Their the reason crime has run a muck in this country. Judges just keep turning out criminals on no or low bail. So if your going to insult someone, have your facts straight.

If you look at the tracks you will not ant claw marks cat have retractable claws canines do notRead More hence you see their claws . These tracks where sent to states that have mountain lions an deal with them all the time. These people confirmed the tracks are mountain lion tracks yet our experts say there not? I've seen cat tracks before as I'm in the woods all summer an during hunting season for over 45years and the tracks I've seen in the paper have no claw marks I would say there cat tracks but are they bobcat or mountain lion?
Wilyweasel March 23, 2014 at 11:54 am
By the way a friend of mine told me an some of my other friends he saw a mountain lion at shannonsRead More farm off Lexington street in Woburn last September chasing deer in the field we all laught at him an told him he was crazy to this day he sticks by his story only now he says I told you .
fatty arbuckle March 26, 2014 at 11:17 am
mountain lion as stated the lack of claw prints is a clear indicator that it is not canine!

Is Morgan drunk or disabled? Sounds like a case of being one of the most daffy itself.

Morgan, I have no idea what you are saying...
JF March 24, 2014 at 12:06 pm
I wish the security cams could be replaced with better ones. That photo of "Jeff" is notRead More going to help whatsoever because it was taken with like a .00005 pixel surveillance camera from the 1970s. Every time there is a crime and a surveillance cam photo it's so diffused that it does no good. If the MBTA had a modern cam, Jeff would be face recognitioned and busted within 2 hours of attacking this poor girl.

Imho, it doesn't matter who the guy in question is related to. He really should not have gottenRead More off, as he did commit a felony for posing as a secret service man.

A man was found guilty of "firearms charges" in his own Washington, D.C. House for havingRead More nothing but a musket ball, after being swat teamed and his house thrashed and family assaulted! a musket ball! which is nothing but a round piece of lead!! Seriously, yet THIS guy is not charged with assaulting an MBTA police officer and claiming to be a "secret" service agent (lol to him thinking a *secret* service agent would announce he's a secret agent) What a country we have become. Banana republic states of America!
