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.
joseph staffier July 21, 2014 at 02:12 pm
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

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.

Rick Warren, get a life bro... Get off that couch and enjoy life you miserable human. SkateboardingRead More has zero difference in safety compared to a bicycle. People just think it's more dangerous because they can only ride a bike and can't fathom any other means of transportation, disgusting.

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!

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".

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. But if I, the law-abiding tax payer, get caught with fireworks I get in trouble?

"At 9:26 a.m., police responded to a report of a drunk man sleeping on a bench on WharfRead More Street." How did they know he was drunk if he was sleeping? and what's the crime here? I see people sleeping on benches and on the grass in parks all the time in Salem, should I be calling the cops?
