âHe doesnât strike me as that kind of person,âEven presuming his innocence, how many times have we heard that about any number of people who have committed heinous crimes?

If her name had been Martin Coakley, she would have gotten more support, politically and financially, and she would have won.

For this reason alone, I'm glad I voted against this arrogant guy.

What a disgraceful, shameful situation.

Typical. When all else fails, blame the nurse.

Great column! But, "no truck with kites"?

White(and Black and Brown and Asian, etc.)students, between grades 7-12, already take the T to BLS every day, from all over the city, and have been doing so for years.

These parents have no shame.

No-Name, There are no classrooms in the BPS with 40 kids in them. That hasn't been true for a very long time. Most classrooms have 20-28 students in them, many less.

This story is so sordid that I feel like I need to take a shower after reading it. Good Grief!

Or we could end METCO and then, maybe, some middle class families of color might be in the BPS, where they haven't been for at least 40 years. Their influence would be welcomed and make a difference, more »

"DCF doesnât hurt children. Adults who have no right to be near them do." This is the awful truth. I am not letting DCF or the Grafton Police, for that matter, off the hook. Mandated reporters and i more »

A mandated reporter is required, by law, to first pick up a phone and speak to a human being at DCF. The fax follows the oral report within 48hrs. See Nicholas H's comment above. more »

p.s. After I call and fax in a report, I follow-up with a phone call to the worker and/or supervisor to find out the status of a case. If I have bothered to file a report, I want to know what's happen more »

This story is not accurate about the facts of how reports are filed. I am a mandated reporter and have filed many 51A's. The process starts with a phone call to an intake worker. The worker takes the more »

This photo is worth a thousand words, if you know you Boston history. God Bless, Ted Landsmark. And God Rest the souls of Firefighters Kennedy and Walsh. R.I.P.

Wow! Based on a reading of the judge's decision, these parents are even more disturbed than I thought. The state of Ct. has washed its hands of them and passed the buck. The buck has to stop somewhere more »

Mentally ill children and adults, some of whom might have once been institutionalized, are now in our homes, schools and communities. Some of them are dangerous and will end up in our over-crowded pr more »

Due to privacy constraints, we don't know the specific details of this case. However, medical child abuse, at the hands of caregivers, is real and is potentially deadly to children. I have seen it up more »

IDK. When my daughter studied abroad in Paris, she lived far outside the fancy downtown arrondissements. Her neighborhood looked and felt a lot like Field's Corner.

People should keep an open mind. We don't know all the facts and the health professionals are not free to speak openly about this case or any other case. "Munchausen by Proxy" Syndrome is a real and more »

While DCF may, indeed, need to beef up its medical expertise, a "handful of nurses" does not constitute "amateurville". Nurses are just as capable of ethical and effective leadership as physicians.

Your example of an abortion at 8 months of gestation is "extreme", in the extreme. Women don't have abortions at 8 months because they don't want their babies.
