No apology necessary on my part. The police department's initial statement was based on the information that they had at the time. They clearly had not yet completed a thorough investigation into the more »

First, the is no "law" with regard to videotaping police in Massachusetts. You can record them if you wish. I agree that all officers should wear body cameras. Most Police Officers WANT to wear them b more »

Since I do not possess all of the facts in this case, I can only say that based on the video that I viewed, the officer was correctly charged with murder and will have his day in court. The troubling more »

The department did not "stand(ing) by one of its own" in this case. They immediately went public. They immediately arrested the officer for murder. Your comment has no merit. more »

We DO NOT need Warren in the White House. Nor do we need her in the U.S. Senate for that matter. more »

Beanbag rounds are effective when the circumstances allow. In this case, the officers had time to make a strategic plan and it was ultimately successful. However, 'less-than-lethal' tools are not a pa more »

Condolences to this young man's family. As usual, the Globe finds the police as the problem, rather than the society's ills and lack of personal responsibility. The police could not notify his family, more »

RIP, Officer Arkell. And to the writer of the story, there is no such thing as a 'routine domestic dispute.' more »

The tapes may be used as evidence in the upcoming trial of Marathon Bomber #2. Therefore, they cannot be released to the public or the media. This would be obvious to even a high school journalism s more »

Shatner has a fantastic sense of humor and never takes himself too seriously. The guy looks pretty damn good for 82 too!!

Who cares what most of the people that the Globe 'polled' said? It is not a popularity contest. The justice system will decide what his sentence is, when he is found guilty.

Warren knows about as much about being middle-class as I do about being rich...
