Anti-gun folks should stop lobbying for laws to take away people's second amendment rights. The effect is that civic minded people are in fear that their rights are going to be taken away by a tyrann more »

How about making the State's existing gun laws uniform across all municipalities before we start adding yet more irrational hoops for civically minded gun owners to jump through. We should be making more »

Yes, bad. Very immoral to buy something expensive like that, use it once and then rip it up. Next rich, or wannabe rich, people will start rolling their wedding limos off of cliffs after the cerem more »

All said, yes Boston could do it, but it should be done right by not wasting taxpayer dollars and that should be the number one requirement signed on to by all our political leaders. That no taxpaye more »

Comment on: Boston detective who failed to follow up in case tied to Edwin Alemany is demoted - Boston.com
Posted 07/30/2013 10:13:47 EDT
Actually, check the record of the cop who was supposed to be doing the investigation. How many overtime hours were spent on a construction detail babysitting a hole in the ground?
Posted 07/30/2013 10:11:36 EDT
Blaming the Detective is appropriate, but putting all the blame on the detective is not.
This is a bigger problem with lack of follow through on anything short of murder.
Posted 07/30/2013 10:07:03 EDT
Actually, I think you are missing the bigger issue. Just one murderer and thief is going to jail, but the bigger issue is that the Boston Police Department and the Suffolk County DA needs to be follo more »

Just to be extra clear, if you are pinned on the ground by a larger person and you are screaming for help and begging the guy to stop, then you do not have an opportunity to retreat.

George Zimmerman did not stand his ground, he was on the ground. With Martin on top of him beating him. Stand your ground just means you don't have an obligation to try and retreat before using de more »

I have to agree with you. Globe is just flamebaiting to catch some eyeballs and provoke people. A couple attention whoring people with signs that say idtiotic things is not news.
