The Elections

Next week the party loyalists will be out to pick their favorite friends, ignoring the the historical facts, budget woes, lawsuits, etc, etc, etc and gleaming over doing the civic duty in voting.

I would guess the same 5 thousand party loyalists who always vote in local elections will vote for the incumbents. The opposition for selectman, one pathetic elderly R, one immature lunatic fringe and one highly educated rookie, have not given enough reason for the independents to come out of their caves.

The School Committee race is more what parents who are voters will seek out. The challengers all deserve a shot while Blummer is still on the Board.

A top SWAT cop to investiagte our SWAT Team

At a recent BOS, (Board of Seniors) meeting the Town Manger announced the Town has hired a world class former SWAT leader to investigate the circumstances surrounding the killing of Mr. Stamps. This same paramilitary expert is the same solider who investigated the killing of the college student in Boston some years ago, by a Boston Cop. The Cop was found not at fault, even though the women was not part of the crowd that was being dispersed. She was shot in the head.

The killing of Mr. Stamps has eroded what little faith I have had in our Police Department and the leadership in this Town. The acquittal of the officer who relieved himself in the parking lot and allegedly pulled a gun on the property owner is just another case of how out of control our police force is in this town.

Town leaders have already heard from Town Council and I'll bet our insurance carriers and one has to wonder how many millions will be awarded and how much in legal fees will this Town incur at a time when we will be closing schools and laying off town employees.

I know one thing for sure.... justice, as we know it, is in the hands of party loyalists who will make us all pay for their lack of moral fiber, all in the name of the Drug War.

Road Construction

Be aware, that on April 18th, major road construction will start in our neighborhoods and most likely last until the summer. And like last year, we will see the same angry Quinn Bill educated cops from our Town and others including Sheriffs Department personal and State Police all making 43.00 dollars and hour.
