Such a shame. So many youngsters trying to get into this country to get away from deplorable livingRead More conditions. What they would give to have the chance that this one and his cronies flushed down the toilet.

What I don't understand is; if they haven't tried the actual (alleged) bomber himself, how can theyRead More convict this guy of colluding with the bomber if we don't (yet) legally know who the bomber is?? I'm no attorney, but seems that there's something wrong here??

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.

Big deal that's why these company's have insurance these are not even bad I was thinking rape murderRead More and bank hold up not just a couple grand of over priced merchandise and also probably have drug problems or some other issue on why they are stealing so u should go find they're dope and Crack dealers that they are stealing for

Drew, I thought the mystery you were going to call out was around how she managed to miss mortgageRead More payments for five years without anyone investigating before now!

Good point! Didn't dawn on me at the time.

This is an older story. The bills were being paid on time via "auto pay". It was whenRead More the accounts went dry that things started unraveling.

My husband and I were crossing in the crosswalk to get Bella Costa for dinner last night and bothRead More sides of the traffic had stopped for us, someone came down the street heading towards Rt 9 and thought I'm going to go around these people and had to slam on his breaks when he realized traffic had actually stopped so that we could cross the street. You can do all the right things as a pedestrian, but some drivers are distracted and always in a hurry. I read about hit and runs all the time and something needs to be done, we need to get creative and figure this out. I think most drivers are paying attention, but many do not.
Theresa Marie Gardner July 12, 2014 at 08:17 am
Thank you all for your POSITIVE comments it means alot to me. I am also a walker and walk everywhereRead More and every crossing light i come to expires when i am in the middle of the road. Things have to change for us pedestrians its very dangerous out there. If you read the lawbook on driving it states you MUST stop for a pedestrian and are not allowed to continue untill that person is all the way across the street and on the sidewalk. Dont be in such a rush to get to your destination us walkers are in a rush also but we still have to follow the rules.And to let you all know my daughter has sustained leg injuries and her 2 year old son (who has cerabel palsey which makes pushing the stroller harder) is still reliving this nightmare it has effected him emotionally..
Mary Gonzales July 12, 2014 at 12:02 pm
Theresa - glad the injuries to your daughter were not too serious, but still an incident that shouldRead More never have happened! I have witness many a pedestrian almost get struck as drivers are in a hurry or not paying attention to those already in the crosswalk. Prayers for your family!

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.
Police are looking for Tara Mulkerron. Courtesy
CC July 8, 2014 at 07:14 am
Why did you post an arrest in May? It is not necessary information in order to find Ms. Mulkerron?Read More Fact is, it diminishes the need of tthe general public from finding urgency to find her? Many will view this that she is a "problematic" person and will feel she will turn up at some point. Additionally, if she is having deep depression and happens upon this herself, it could literally push her over the edge feeling the "whole world" now knows. I am very disappointed in this article. Can you please remove the unnecessary "information" from your article and you may delete my comment following. Thank you, in advance. Cynthia Caron President-Founder LostNMissing Inc.

Jeez Loueezz I just found out I was bordering on "elderly". The domestic violence storyRead More about the "Elderly" 66yr old man. Seriously, 66 is considered elderly. What then is someone in their late 80's considered...petrified?
Edward Mangan July 7, 2014 at 02:48 pm
The Natick Police Department supplied the following information. "It does not indicate aRead More conviction.” A statement with clear overtones of the departments "guilty until proven innocent approach". Fits well with an overall implication of corruption and dishonesty of Police Department out of control with authoritarianism.
Tony Schinella July 7, 2014 at 03:12 pm
Thanks for the note Melanie. 65 and older is considered, by both reporting and government standards,Read More to be "elderly." The WHO, CDC, federal government, and AP Style all consider 65+ to be elderly even if the "cool" Boomers/hippies are now entering their senior years and don't consider themselves to be. :-)

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.

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!

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.

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".

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.

As stated earlier, illegal immigrants are just that - illegal. Yet, Massachusetts turns a blind eyeRead More to it. The mayor of Somerville welcomes them: http://michaelgraham.com/liberal-ma-mayor-to-illegals-ldquo-this-city-belongs-to-you-i-work-for-you-rdquo/ and Mass law states that they receive any and all public entitlement programs that are offered.
