He should be arrested!!! First off why would you do that after we had a bombing ... So disrespectfulRead More and just pain dumb on the man's behalf. What is wrong with people today

And if the backpacks were lethal and the person wasn't detained everyone would be complaining why isRead More he at large.

Falls into the exception to free speech category- that you are not allowed to yell fire in anRead More crowded theater. One does not get to "'replicate" a terrorist act which killed and wounded people-at the same exact place, using the same medium-and think its artistic expression. He is lucky Boston PD didn't take him out. That took restraint.

I'm going with hawk's opinion. What he did counteracted the Rolling Stone cover, showing the realRead More truth of what happened. Though it would be nice to know if he received money for his photos or just released them- anyone know?

Hawk.....There were no laws broken here. Yes, he may have broken a department policy. But not aRead More policy that should have forced his retirement. Think of this. Police and Fire departments all over the country now post Twitter pictures while on scene working an incident. Obviously if their taking pictures, then their not doing their jobs. Isn't that breaking department policy also? No reprimands happening. I still think this was a lame decission by the MSP.

Scott is right. He broke no law and the photos he released were already cleared for not being usedRead More as evidence. I think he deserved punishment but I thought the one week suspension was the right move. To be moved to Athol was a crap move by the State Police or whomever ordered it.

The spineless rodent who murdered Tyler Zanco is still at large. I would hope that, even inRead More Massachusetts, this takes preference over flippin' shoplifters. If I DO spot one of these hardened criminals in the photos, however, I will immediately call 911, and go into self-imposed lockdown!

@kellynwright - if you think Boston is going to give their stamp of approval without Wynn fixingRead More Sullivan Square and rt.99 as part of the deal, then you clearly don't understand how this City works. Yes, cars will always win when involved in accidents with pedestrians and cyclists. And yes, as this city grows and expands, traffic will increase no matter what is built or not built. If we want a pedestrian and cyclist friendly city, bury the traffic and create greenspace. Don't make intersections and roadways pretty by adding trees and wider sidewalks. G'day

ps. Article pertaining to Charlestown and it's removed entirely from the main page. Why are localRead More businesses advertising on this page?

One easy fix might be to have traffic officers helping to direct the traffic in the square. EvenRead More trainees are better than nothing at all. The casino will make all this much worse-during the building stage and after. A "flyover" might help but again this is expensive and will disrupt the entire area while it is being built. There needs to be an alternative route laid out while building takes place so that reconstruction can go on 24/7. There are solutions to every problem but there must be the political and public will to get it done.

According to the Boston Globe Milenko Majstorovic of Bosnia was the victim, not the murderer.

Only Europeans from non Muslim countries should be allowed to immigrate here! Translation WhiteRead More people!

Governor Deval Patrick is more of a murderer than this fool because he enables terrorists to live inRead More this state like the marathon bombers! He provided funding in the form of welfare, schooling, EBT and housing at the expense of the Massachusetts taxpayers!

maybe this app can help against morons on the phone while driving. every time i am behind someoneRead More driving erratically i pass them,but while doing so see that they are on the phone,idiots

John, no especial need I suppose, but I don't feel any especial need not to, either. My right toRead More speak as I like exceeds your right to never be offended, and your god's not the boss of me. That's another nice thing about America.
SPH April 12, 2014 at 09:20 pm
@Bonnie Parker, You couldn't be more wrong in that statement. There are alot of things a person canRead More say to another person and get in alot of trouble. So just keep that in mind, (My right to speak as I like exceeds your right to never be offended,).............. WRONG IN SO MANY WAYS .

OMG!!! An article that actually pertains to Charlestown!! "Charlestown Patch will provide moreRead More information as it becomes available. " Suuuuuuure ya will Patch. How about reporting on the several ODs that have been taking place? Make the public aware of this? Can't find that info on Twitter News now, can you? Bring back Kristi!! Bring back Helen!! AOL - stop teasing us with "local" news that isn't local!! RIP Bicyclist - prayers go out to your family. G'day.
David Reinfeld April 3, 2014 at 04:23 pm
This is awful news -I hope that a proper traffic plan can be implemented to accomodate bikers goingRead More through Sullivan Square so this tragedy doesnt happen again. Bicyclist and their supporters should continue to put pressure on city planners to make this a reality. We all need to raise awareness of using caution for both motorist and bicyclists that share the same road -Sullivan Sq. is a beast. My thoughts and prayers are with the bicyclist's family. RIP...
