In response to redsoxdirtdog's comment:
For anybody who thinks a restraining order would have eliminated the possiblility or even probability that this terrible crime would have happened, you are simply ignoring logic.
How does a restraining order prevent somebody from killing the person it is meant to protect?
Clearly, in retrospect, it makes the Remys look bad, but the removal of the restraining order did not cause this. Clearly, this guy was compeltely out of control, & should have been behind bars. Who do we want to blame next? Her family for going along with this? If it were my daughter, I would have pushed to have the guy behind bars long before this, but I'm not going to put my standards on them.
Do I think what Remy & his family did was wrong in pushing for leniency on their out of control, steroid crazed son? You bet. They should have let him crash & burn. Hit rock bottom! Do I also respect the fact that sometimes there is nothing you can do to control an out of control son or daughter? Yep.
I guess I'm all over the board on this, but still...... does it disqualify Remy as a broadcaster for the Red Sox? Absolutely not! I think this is coming down to those who like what Remy does in the booth, & those who don't.
but, let's not indict the guy for stupidly trying to protect his no good, peice of sh___, out of control kid.
seriously? The odds of the murder not happening would be better with the restraining order. Police are on alert for the person's car and do drive byes more often. There is enough blame to go around to include the Waltham court system.
Regardless, Mrs. Remy should have kept her nose out of it. Now it is easier to see where the son learned his manipulation tactics.
Obviously it is a sensitive subject which will generate a lot of talk. One reason why Remy most likely not be back.
