Oh, please. A drink that costs pennies on the dollar, and he's treated like a he set someone's carRead More or lawn on fire. Where were these signs? And if he was doing something wrong, no one noticed before? Or did they drag it out?

Gerry Horne what I think you are missing is that the fine is $525 for something that cost 89 cents.Read More That's what is disgusting. The rent a cop could have given him a warning and let him pay the freaking 89 cents. Then if he was caught again then taken it to the next level. Now this guy has a huge fine and can no longer work at his job site. All of this for a freaking soda...unbelievable!!!! OUTRAGEOUS!!!

You can believe the Mayor of New York will use this footage to help his case to get rid of ALL horseRead More drawn carriages in New York he promised he would do.

Horses should not be nose to exhaust pipe on city streets. That is cruelty and the horse had hadRead More enough.
kathleen macmurray April 17, 2014 at 08:46 am
A horse and carriage ride in a park, fine. But not on busy, crowded city streets. It's cruel to theRead More horse and dangerous to everyone else. I'm with the NYC mayor on this one.

There is always a reason for a price-increase - I can't remember ever reading about a reason for aRead More price-decrease. It's possible no one else has noticed this. Isn't capitalism wonderful?

The disease came from China! Aids came from Africa, other diseases come from Mexico but yet we letRead More people flood to this country and they bring those diseases with them!

The price of pork can also go up because the price of beef is up. It's not just weather andRead More disease, it's also cost of fuel.

Hey," No News in Natick" ( D Penta} Good idea, don't click if it's not local news. TheyRead More are almost out of business now, let's put them over the top. What little local news you get now on Patch, will be non-existent.

Just another copy cat. They crawl in thu the exit where the toy is dropped into when youRead More "win". Where were the oh so stupid parents while this was going on?

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
Joseph April 15, 2014 at 10:48 pm
And if the backpacks were lethal and the person wasn't detained everyone would be complaining why isRead More he at large.
Snow April 16, 2014 at 02:44 am
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.

@BH -- that story is about the new coaches being built overseas, not the locomotives mentioned aboveRead More (which I believe were assembled in the US) ...

I understand, but with the good comes the bad. Don't trust Massachusetts or their deal makingRead More ability.

The police in Boston are terribly stupid. They are dumber than most cops and that would make themRead More total morons. And for all you idiots that are going to respond about how much you respect cops because 'not all are bad' or how their job is so hard, really, really? Please think about what you're saying.
Snow April 17, 2014 at 05:26 pm
One of the backpacks had the same pressure cooker in it that the Tsarnaev brothers used. Easier toRead More simple err on the side of caution as to what it contained, then to risk a life to open it.
jpf2361 April 17, 2014 at 05:31 pm
Snow, It was widely reported on area News Stations and local papers that the backpack contained aRead More RICE COOKER filled with confetti. It was NOT the same Pressure cooker that the Tsarnev brothers used. The other backpack was left at the scene by a News Crew as they were forced to evacuate before they could retreive it.

Mathew said that the bomber was a communist. He could not be further from the truth. The bomber wasRead More a religious fanatic. Communists are atheists and non religious. Religious fanatics like the bomber are on the political right wing of the spectrum.
hawk April 17, 2014 at 12:29 pm
Double edge sword. I applaud the fact that he knew kids everywhere would blindly and naively seeRead More the cover of rolling stone and be affected by it in a way that supports and encourages and dare I say, idolizes a terrorist. On the other end, he broke the law and there's WAY too much of that getting swept under the rug. At the end of the day I'm happy he did it. The image of him bloody is more shocking than that ridiculous picture on RS. I think regardless of how much exposure he got, it worked for the greater good.
Snow April 17, 2014 at 05:19 pm
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?

@DennisN......LOL! You made my day! Everything I said was 100% True. For some reason the People ofRead More Mass will vote Democrat even if its not a Good choice. They did surprise me with some Republican Governors though. 1972 Mass goes for McGovern. Only State in the Union. Nixon paid us back by closing several bases. I'm sure your a big Obama fan as well. I promise you he will go down in history as the worst President in Modern times and maybe even All Time. Mass will always be home for me Dennis, sorry. We will just have to agree to disagree. I can do that. I don't think you can. By reading your post to me and others I can tell your pretty impressed with yourself. I'm not. How do you think Mary Jo Kopecknys family felt when Mass kept electing the guy who killed their daughter. 6 hours of missing time Teddy couldn't explain. Or how about the families of those underage boys felt when Men in their 50s were having sex with their kid? Not a day in jail. Then, Barney and Gerry kept getting reelected. Its not up to the US Government to control every aspect of our life Dennis. Obama, Holder, Pelosi, Harry Reid are all criminals hiding the truth from the American People. Agree To Disagree if you want but sometimes the truth hurts. PS I am not a Republican either
Joe Veno April 17, 2014 at 07:41 am
Why does Patrick think he can do what ever he want to do? OOPs sorry I forgot he lovesRead More Obama....question answered !!
BH April 17, 2014 at 08:11 am
Frank makes me laugh, literally nobody listens or cares what you say because you present it in suchRead More a conspiracy theory like way. Why don't you paint a nice water color sign and take a drive to the state house today.

The Clinton's wish they were as rich as the 2% I speak of. And Hillary is very Ego driven. And IRead More would have been willing to bet that with her Ego she would have gone against the Old Boy network. That Network that constantly tried to shut her up when her husband was president!! Her Ego alone would have made a huge difference!!!!

Ronald Regan was a buffoon, a cartoon character, and the only thing that trickled down was thatRead More substance that slipped past his adult diaper.
Genius Species April 17, 2014 at 05:30 pm
Your naïveté is laughable. You mean the same "old boy betwork" that gave theRead More Clintons millions. Lets not forget about the Goldman Sachs speaking fees either. Shame, shame, shame. http://www.realclearpolitics.com/2013/11/02/hillary_clinton039s_big_paydays_from_goldman_sachs_319105.html Oh and btw having a ego doesn't make you a good leader. A good tyrant yes but not a good leader.

Thanks for the response. Were you there? What does that mean really? Were you? All I'm doing isRead More asking questions that need to be asked, am I free to ask questions and get answers? Someone committed suicide after being pegged the bomber? That's a new one - who?
