He's facing 20 years maximum on the obstruction charge and 5 years for conspiracy. He'll probablyRead More get 10 & 3 to be served concurrently and be released after 7 years and then hopefully deported.

Shoplifting cost us all, we pay higher prices for goods because of these idiots. They may not beRead More violent offenders but they should be off the street & this is a good way to find them. I do wish the Patch would proofread its own articles though.

The Mass Most Wanted Website focuses on showcasing criminals at large that were caught on camera orRead More video, making an accurate ID more possible. Most of the criminals featured are shoplifters and bankrobbers because it is rare for someone to get video or photos ofhe person who murdered or raped them.

Drew bodies can be occasionally become mummfied naturally under very specific environmentalRead More conditions. It if was dry enough long enough ( in the north that usually means cold and dry during winter) a body can naturally dry out enough to mummify.

She's no DIFFERANT than anyone ELSE. Keep her LICENSE suspended. Let her find out what LIFE is LIKE.

poor Shanna has to walk around murderpan now. she will probably sue to get her job back.

There is no question the accident was caused by her sneezing. The evidence is clear. The cellRead More phone in her hand was there because she thought she was holding a Kleenex and she even wiped her nose with the phone for proof. She wants her license back since she does not want to depend on the bus. Four years ago, I voluntarily stopped driving due to failing vision. If I can get around by the T, she can do it.

whats next if you smell alcohol no sobriety test
Laura Rodriguez July 16, 2014 at 05:46 pm
I agree with this, even with alcohol just because you can smell it you can't tell if a person hasRead More only had one drink or has had several. What if someone had a drink spilled on them at a party? The smell shouldn't be the only proof to justify a search. Under the 4th amendment of the Constitution, we are protected against unlawful search and seizure. With that being said, the police should have more viable proof that a person is under the influence in order to administer a sobriety test.
Stretch July 19, 2014 at 06:53 am
I remember less than a decade ago, while my car was parked in a parking lot a few hundred yards awayRead More from where I was standing, a marblehead police officer saying he was going to go search my car and if he found even one seed from a marijuana plant he would charge me with a felony.

It is ashamed that they didn't reschedule for Sunday night. Mr. Gentile stated that this could beRead More done for Sunday but the committee voted it down.

Steve Immig June 29, 2014 at 09:31 pm
And as most law enforcement people know the "undocumented people" here have a perfectlyRead More clear record of whatever they did in their country. Call you local police and ask. Call State Police in Framingham and ask them as they know more than the locals. Watch this video for more! https://www.facebook.com/pages/Fair-Immigration-Framingham/271361686376986?ref_type=bookmark

You have to realize that alot of these cabs are driven by people from other countries that don'tRead More obey traffic laws and may overcharge! A 911 Bomber drove a cab in Boston. A friend of the Marathon Bombers was just arrested by FBI while working as a cab driver in Braintree! Got to keep your guard up at all times!
Jazelle LaMare June 29, 2014 at 12:06 pm
Pepper Spray is illegal, no ?
Jazelle LaMare June 29, 2014 at 12:13 pm
New Hampshire is the only state that supports, personel self-defense. Massachusetts, the policeRead More say, "You're on your own". Calling 911 is as effective as yelling for help! In fact yelling for help might get you a few by-standers to watch and take cell phone movies for latter.

In defense of drug abusers, nobody could listen to that electronica stuff without some kind ofRead More sedatives.
Brian F Hickman June 27, 2014 at 09:19 pm
That is a very difficult place to control at a concert. Drugs are smuggled in and the place is dark.Read More Alcohol is also available and they have SECURITY handling the inside and not enough Boston Police. Concert crowds notice that and proceed to get "Messed Up".

Martin...the road block didn't destroy your life...it may have saved others lives. You destroyedRead More your own life by drinking and driving..be glad that you got caught before something worse happened.
cindy June 26, 2014 at 08:13 pm
I have to move out of this State. It's ok for the State police to fish for drunk drivers but not toRead More send illegal aliens back to their third world countries? So tired of the double standard of this State.
GMan Extreme June 26, 2014 at 08:57 pm
Martin, are you insane? You knowingly chose to drink and drive and you're blaming the checkpoint? IRead More hope you really never drive a car again! Cindy, if you really have a problem with the occasional announced checkpoint that will get drunks off the road possibly saving lives, then do leave the state. I have zero tolerance for anyone stupid and irresponsible enough to get behind the wheel while impaired putting others lives in jeopardy. Anyone here who thinks this is ok is obviously also impaired, but on a full-time basis.
