One of the most challenging segments in extending the Larry Scott Trial would be crossing state Highway 20, Selby said. Selby estimates about 10 possible routes for an extension. The final list of routes will depend on topography and the ability to acquire land or purchase rights of way so the trail can pass through private property.

On Friday, the state Department of Health reopened the rest of the beaches along the Strait. Sequim Bay remains closed to the recreational harvest of all species of shellfish. Discovery Bay and Kilisut Harbor, including Mystery Bay, remain closed only to the harvest of butter and varnish clams. A seasonal closure is in effect on all Pacific Ocean beaches in both counties. Commercially harvested shellfish are tested for toxins prior to distribution and should be safe to eat. Danger signs are posted. A closure of all species means people should not harvest clams, oysters, mussels, scallops and other species of molluscan shellfish.
Crab meat is not known to contain the biotoxin, but the guts can contain unsafe levels. Marine biotoxins are not destroyed by cooking or freezing. Symptoms of PSP Symptoms of paralytic shellfish poisoning, caused by marine biotoxins, can appear within minutes or hours and usually begin with tingling lips and tongue, moving to the hands and feet, followed by difficulty breathing and potentially death.
Recreational shellfish harvesters should check the shellfish safety map at www. Sean Ryan, 53, of Port Angeles — who is challenging appointee G. Michael Gawley, 72, of Sequim for the Position 1 seat in the Nov. OLYMPIA — State shellfish managers have postponed the fall start of razor clam digging on ocean beaches because of high levels of a marine toxin in the clams.
The problem is the level of domoic acid, a natural toxin produced by certain types of marine algae. It can be harmful or even fatal if consumed in sufficient quantities. Cooking or freezing does not destroy domoic acid in shellfish. Toxin levels have dropped since May and June, when several digs were canceled, but concentrations still exceed the state health guideline of 20 parts per million. Ayres said if levels continue to decline, some clam digs may be scheduled in mid- or late November. Since , when the toxin was first detected on the Pacific coast, outbreaks of domoic acid have prompted the cancellation of three entire razor clam seasons in Washington state — the last one in Too many chiefs Ryan said he believes the district is top-heavy.

The owner of the boat, James Kruse of Orcas Island, was out of town and the vessel was unoccupied when the storm hit, Slade said. Vessel Assist was involved in two other vessel rescues Friday, one in which a boat sustained a shredded sail and another in which a sailboat lost its foresail and engine power near Marrowstone Island.
Tore hole in boat The Phoenix is made of ferro-cement, a durable compound used in boatbuilding, but the force of its contact with the breakwater tore a large hole in its port side, according to Slade. It had just spent several weeks in the Boat Haven. Slade said divers are inspecting the damage and determining whether to use flotation devices to dislodge the boat from the rock wall.
He predicted that removal efforts would begin today. No pollutants leaked into the water, Slade said. Emergency dispatchers received a call at about The two occupants were shooting off flares from the foot boat about 1 mile north of the Fort Flagler lighthouse on Marrowstone Island, Beezley said. Sailboat rescues The boat had lost its foresail in the stiff wind and 3-foot waves, and the two aboard feared it would capsize.
They were not hurt, he said. While the Coast Guard helicopter took up station nearby, Marine 16 secured the sailboat until Vessel Assist could arrive. Vessel Assist took the sailboat under tow into Port Townsend Bay. The occupants of the boat, a man and a woman, declined to provide their.

Critical to being properly fitted is to be examined first by a medical doctor, preferably an ear, nose and throat specialist, who can check for correctable medical conditions like impacted ear wax. Thorough exam Next is a thorough audiological exam, conducted in a soundproof room, that checks each ear for the ability to hear consonants and whole words. If an aid is deemed necessary, the audiologist should discuss your various hearing needs and situations that you find most challenging, and describe the different options and costs.
Finally, after getting the selected aids, practice using them is critical, with return visits to the prescriber for needed adjustments. Holiday Inn Express, E.

Both were found to reduce low-density lipoprotein an average of 0. These results should be interpreted with caution, however, as they focus on risk factors and not necessarily outcomes. There were also few studies contributing to each of these findings, so the results may not stand up to further scrutiny or replication. I admit that this is an interpretation, and others may disagree. The lack of a dose response in many of these trials, coupled with the fact that so many were performed in countries with markedly different tea consumption from our own, makes these results less generalizable than those of coffee were.

The Department of Transportation said in a statement that it filed the lawsuit against Seattle Tunnel Partners in King County Superior Court to preserve its legal rights in. Transportation spokeswoman Laura Newborn said the legal action was taken Friday following court filings by STP and its insurance companies. Bertha, the machine digging the tunnel, broke down in December , and crews have been struggling to repair it ever since.
The four-lane toll tunnel was supposed to open to traffic at the end of this year. It is now scheduled to open in March The additional money reflects extra spending on administrators, engineers, consulting firms and office space. The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages because of the delays caused by the breakdown of the tunnel boring machine. Newborn said the state would ask that its lawsuit be stayed until the 2-mile tunnel project is completed.

His daughter has excelled in high school, but Aguirre has urged her to attend community college to avoid the debt that ensnared him. School loans that span multiple generations within families. Data analyzed exclusively by The Associated Press, along with surveys about families and rising student debt loads, show that: This group accounts for 35 percent of education debt, up from 25 percent in , according to the New York Federal Reserve.
Contributing to this surge: Millennials, who are 34 and younger, have roughly the same average debt, according to a report by Pew Charitable Trusts. A result is that many of their children will need to borrow heavily for college or pursue cheaper alternatives, thereby perpetuating a cycle of family debt. The multigenerational debt cycle reflects a rush to pursue college as a path to middle class security. Roughly 25 years ago, federal policies began to encourage borrowing on a mass scale to cover soaring college costs.
Policymakers figured that borrowers could afford the debt because college degrees would all but guarantee comfortable incomes. The reality played out somewhat differently. Roughly 6 million Gen-X households still owe student debt. Some, like Aguirre, are forgoing home ownership. Others have moved to remote stretches of the country to qualify for loan forgiveness programs. Successful careers increasingly require graduate degrees — and thus, ever larger debt loads that take longer to repay. At no point in the past, experts say, has such a large share of the U.
Different paths Nathan Anderson received his first student loan in His time at Johns Hopkins University overlapped with the start of the lending boom: The government was raising borrowing limits, introducing unsubsidized Stafford loans and incentivizing private lenders. But the wider availability of debt instead helped fuel rising tuitions, according to research this year by the New York Fed.

Majoring in psychology, Anderson hoped to become a child psychologist. But after suffering a shoulder injury while playing soccer, he found relief only from an acupuncturist. The treatment led him to study Chinese medicine after graduation and become a licensed acupuncturist himself in Now 42 with a blended family of five, he runs an acupuncture clinic in Tucson, Ariz.
The student lending boom never fully appreciated how many students might switch major or careers, nor that incomes would stagnate as debt levels rose. No choice but debt Part of the problem is that job opportunities can require workers to return to school and borrow at a time in life when savings traditionally become a priority.

My point is that we need to watch each others back. On a personal note, I want to thank those people who took a moment to show their support over the recent Boston Globe article in which a Federal Judge alleged that I lied in Federal Court. For whatever reasons, Judge Nancy Gertner is convinced that I. The Judge insists that I, along with a couple of members of my DCU Squad, lied about statements and observations so that we could arrest this certain individual. She has taken many shots at me, despite the fact that nothing has been produced to show that my testimony was false. I stand by what I did that day and what members of my squad did that day.
Thanks again for your support. I truly appreciate it. Enjoy your families and your friends during the Holidays. The view from here continued from page A2 tington Ave. Sound paranoid, I think not, currently there are two cases before the SJC one involving the town of Somerville, the other involving the Town of Melrose where both communities are arguing that they have a right to control commercial advertising that abuts their public ways.
Our understanding is that the mayor is not happy with this decision and that he takes very seriously his responsibility to the citizens of Boston and will not have an outside authority dictate to him the way public safety will be handled in this City of Boston. Our attorneys believe that this appeal has a strong likelihood of success, because the decision is purely a legal one and will be subject to de novo review. Certainly every municipal manager in the Commonwealth has a vested interest in the outcome and we welcome their support.
If somehow the court does not find in our favor, obviously we will seek redress in the Legislature. Speaking of details let me clear up a few more rumors that sometimes take on a life of their own if not straightened out. First of all as of this time, our legislative agent Jim Barry reports that there is no pending legislation to replace police officers with civilian flagmen. Second, we have been in contact with the leaders on the hill as well as many other elected officials and every one of them acknowledges the value of redeploying maybe thousands of police officers daily back out into the communities at private expense.
But of course while being interviewed by a local talk show host and after being badgered, the governor indicated everything is on the table with regard to creating savings for the Commonwealth and generating revenue to improve bridges and roadways. When specifically asked by the reporter, he said he would review the issue of.
Now, I am not in the business of making excuses for the governor, but nowhere in that statement can I conclude that he said he was going to do away with paid details. Somehow in the translation, the haters and some members of the media concluded, that is what he said, hence, an orchestrated witch hunt began.
To those who have not been here before let me enlighten you with a little of our experience.
We are not out of the woods yet and this discussion is far from over. Our detractors will work feverishly to compromise our profession. They will work in concert as they have before to degrade our service and embarrass our profession. Your charge and mandate going forward is to continue to guard against this effort and the current campaign, continuing to deliver the high level of service that conceivably no one else in public service can deliver.
And when a member of the service delivers above and beyond please make sure a copy of the event is advanced to the BPPA so that we can catalog it in the event that the moment in time arrives, when we are confronted with the lies and rhetoric so that we can one more time put the issue down with reality and facts. After all that is what we do, and let there be no doubt we are prepared, but we will not continue to be successful without you, the membership. Thanks for everything that you have done throughout the year. Certainly as I reflect, I must say that you have weathered a difficult year and made us strong through your efforts.
Thank you for the blessing of your friendship, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you, your family and loved ones. As always please be safe out there. As you yourself finally admitted as a part of a letter to the editor by Sgt. As a year Boston police veteran, I am convinced that a prevailing anti-police attitude is behind this manufactured controversy about police details. The facts be damned, never let the truth get in the way of a good story. Not that it matters for I am sure this missive will never see the light of day except in our own Pax Centurion , but the following are some facts about police details and my personal observations about your own reporting methods: That rate does not include night, weekend, holiday or overtime pay, which is of course significantly higher.
Many states use a combination of police details and flagmen. Detail officers are employed in ALL of our neighboring New England states, in various capacities as determined by local and state ordinances, laws and regulations. These figures have apparently been pulled out of thin air and issued for no other purpose than to put a spin on your own antipolice agenda.
Previous Herald articles have attacked the fact that police officers get a miniwww. Does your editorial staff or reporters get paid by the word? Does Howie Carr or Margery Egan write for free? Years ago, the Herald was also a supporter of utility deregulation, because it would supposedly stimulate competition and reduce prices. If police details were eliminated tomorrow, there would not be one cent in reduced costs passed along to either consumers or taxpayers. The vast majority of police details are not paid from taxpayer dollars but are assessed to private companies.
A police officer is primarily employed by the state or municipal government, while the flagman would be beholden to the company he is employed by. A police officer can act in a wide variety of roles while assigned to a detail site, while a flagmen can do but one thing in the event of an accident or incident; and that is, ironically, to call a cop. Throughout our history, Massachusetts.
I would challenge Mr. Judicial system fails again By Phil Docket pseudonym pin it anyway you want, Judge Kathe Tuttman has the blood of that honeymoon couple on her hands. Her blowhard peer supporters jump to her defense, dazed and confused, how dare the public question their rulings? Quiet in the court! The ugly truth lies in a fresh grave at a Washington cemetery.
Like her judicial defenders, Kathe Tuttman, was apparently a political sign-holding hack that contributed to the winning gubernatorial candidate. Tuttman obviously fit the stringent judicial qualifications needed to be anointed an all-knowing and ever-powerful courtroom god.
The governor also appoints a judicial nomination committee to. The only real requirement besides sucking up to the governor is that there is no requirement. The governor can appoint anyone they want, just like this champion of justice, Kathe Tuttman. Come on, who could see that coming? Maybe he could have stayed in Massachusetts with a family member? There seems to be at least two incompetent boobs anointed for every one decent judge that is appointed.
There are tons of incompetent self-absorbed hacks in the ranks of the judiciary who are endangering the public daily with their asinine rulings. The article questioned whether the officers acted appropriately. The weapon was later found to be a pellet gun, but the photograph of the weapon later released to the media proved without question that it appeared to be a black semi-automatic handgun. Alternatives simply were not available to the officers, who were unlucky enough to have responded to this call.
Alternatives are almost never an option, when a suspect is pointing a handgun directly at an officer. In the context of grieving people, looking for answers and pointing fingers in all the wrong places, we can understand, though we thoroughly disagree. But it is indeed beneath contempt when one reads a letter to the editor Boston Herald, Dec.
Mental illness is a terrible thing, and almost every family has someone they know afflicted by it, to various degrees. But blaming the officers is simply wrong. You must recognize what the officers confronted when they arrived on the scene: Retired Chelmsford Deputy Chief Roark, come on down!
In a pompous and arrogant tone which virtually guarantees that, in fact, Mr. The arrogance of Mr. The widow of Marquis Barker can be somewhat understood, if only for the fact that she speaks out of grief and anger. If somebody pointing what appears to be a handgun, the use of a less-lethal weapon like a taser is not even in the equation. The armed suspect, who is pointing the handgun directly at officers must be stopped immediately. Officers cannot first attempt to influence the armed suspect into surrendering, with just a minor flesh wound.
We aim to hit center-mass and to stop the threat. In this case, an armed man sitting inside of a stolen vehicle behind the car door with the window closed, has no bodily center mass as a target. With just his head, shoulder, neck, and arm as the target, the extremely difficult decision was made. And in my opinion, they did everything correctly. I always thought that it was just the press or big-mouthed politicians who engaged in second-guessing cops after traumatic shootings, but obviously, I was wrong. But seriously, where Mr.
But I can guarantee you one thing: That idea under those circumstances is simply ludicrous, except for police administrator types who read lots of text books and manuals. These switches are disguised as an ordinary part of the cruiser, familiar only to officers, and allow the cruiser to remain running yet immobile until the switch is deactivated.
During the tragic shooting of Marquis. Additionally, the BPPA has never been approached with any issue involving the installation of kill switches on police cruisers. But here in Boston, retired Deputy Roark, we have so much more to worry about while exiting our cruisers than our hats. In my humble opinion, it is highly likely that the average Boston police patrolman encounters more in any given eight-hour shift than retired Chelmsford Deputy Chief Roark faced in his entire career. The shooting of Mr. Marquis Barker presents as a classic suicide-by-cop scenario, and a tragedy for all involved.
Reviewing the newspaper reports and watching television reporting of the event caused me great consternation and sincere professional concern, as manifested in my letter-to-the-editor published in the Boston Herald. The sad saga deserves some serious scrutiny and sometimes an outsider, even a rube like myself, can cultivate some dialogue, and catalyze procedural changes that can prevent a future occurrence.
Without dissecting the entire tragic sequence of the facts and circumstances of which I'm not privy to, there is one thing that is crystal clear: Such an evolution is always cataclysmic! The only time it should be ever allowed to happen is to enhance a tactical intervention plan, after all negotiations have failed! If the clock is running, everyone's emotions are being reduced; you are making progress!
There is no compelling reason to rush things with a guy threatening to kill himself; what's the worst that will happen? Better that he go ahead and kill himself, than he be allowed to manipulate police to the task! No one could ever fault a police response to such a situation if that were the outcome Had the guy jumped into a cruiser equipped with such and it was activated he would have been at least momentarily contained! Maybe then a K9 could have been used a good option for such a guy , or less-than-lethal munitions, chemical agents or whatever!
Hey, I'm sorry, but my actual experiences cause me to feel strongly about that incident. I commanded the SWAT Team from until , and supervised well over call-outs involving barricaded suspects, hostage situations, high risk warrant services, raids , robbery stake-outs and dignitary protection operations. My training in the area of police tactical operations, hostage negotiations and critical incident management is extensive. I have instructed police, tactical officers, and civilians in such numerous times. My full resume, including training and education is available in the event someone needs an expert witness in the above.
I have testified in police tactical operations in Superior Court, as an expert witness, as I have in drug investigations. I doubt there are many police officers in New England who have directly supervised and physically participated in a real hostage rescue operation such as I have done at least three times. Not the kid with a knife! I hope that this background assists you!
Oh yeah, I might mention that I served in the U. In , the team shot one Charlestown guy and captured two other Townies during their attempted robbery of Diamond Jewelery in Westford. I guess they were misinformed! Please convey my sincere empathy to the officers involved, my interest in the matter is solely as outlined above, pure and simple. Could you please forward me a copy of the Pax Centurion that contains this? Roark was speaking as an individual and not on behalf of the Chelmsford Police Department. The Chelmsford Police Department expresses their total support of the BPD officers involved in this tragic shooting and would never seek to second-guess from afar the circumstances which presented themselves to these officers.
The letter to the editor from retired deputy chief Roark was brought to my attention last night. Just to be clear, I think the letter was inappropriate, and it does not reflect the sentiment or opinion of anyone in the Chelmsford Police Department. Thankfully, no Boston police officers were hurt in this incident, and I hope all involved are coping with what they went through.
Good luck in the investigation and I wish you and all the members of the Boston Police Department a safe holiday season. Answers for the widow, questions for the retired Chelmsford Deputy continued from page A8 The arrogance of Mr. Few of them ever actually performed street-level police work answering calls. Most are nothing more than politicians in. And if they can do it at the expense of street officers who actually engage in the down and dirty police work, then so be it.
Friend of the drug dealer, destroyer of communities continued from page A1 ample of an activist, elitist judge contributing to the destruction of inner-city communities by her affinity for the criminal element. The Globe article discussed the case of U. Dessesaure is a scumbag drug dealer who plied his trade in the inner-city and lived at either 28 Lawn St.
Backyard Brawl (Uncivilized Boxing Action Series)
Dessesaure was, and is, a worthless oxygen thief who contributes nothing but crime and disorder to a community. He was arrested by the BPD drug unit back in February , and his apartment in Quincy was searched along with the assistance of the Quincy police. As a Quincy resident myself, I am exceedingly grateful that this cancer was removed from my community. Again quoting from the Boston Magazine article: So you have now a pretty good idea how Judge Nancy Gertner feels about cops and the drug unit. Earl Dessasaure come on down!
Now, for a judge to have a decision overturned is the street equivalent of an open-handed slap in the face. His reputation is stellar, and can never be besmirched amongst his friends and peers by the likes of a Judge Gertner. You want to know what that bogus charge consists of? Jay wrote down the license plate number of drug-dealer Dessesaure which he received from an informant on a scrap of paper which he had in front of him.
He later found even the original scrap of paper, but too late for Gertner! Suffice it to say that she, and activist judges like her, are in my opinion the proximate cause of the crime which tears at inner-city neighborhoods. In the pristine ivory tower from which she harangues working cops, she searches for arcane legal technicalities in order to release thugs and rogues to ply their trade on the city streets, laughing as they walk out of her court.
Sympathy is ladled in heaping spoonfuls to drug dealers while scorn is heaped upon hardworking, streetlevel police officers. It means being a penultimate hypocrite and elitist fraud. And neither do Judicial system fails again continued from page A7 complete without including these prizes. Leading the pack on my list is her Highness U.
Gaining on the leaders with consistent incompetence is Judge Mark Summerville, and creaking up the rear is Judge Hiller Zobel and. In the end, until the public stands up and says enough is enough; the guilty and the ruthless will still be victimizing the weak and the vulnerable. Giddy with glee that the Governor appeared to cave-in to her relentless questioning, Margery was handed her issue-of-the-day and used the bully pulpit of her talk-show and Herald column to once again attack police details. Utilizing her bully pulpit, Margery made her usual snide references about police officers, details, traffic conditions related to the Marathon, etc.
For those unfamiliar with the ways of the modern media, let me enlighten you a. From their ivory towers, they view us police officers as lowerclass, brutish, uneducated thugs who, though we provide the bulk of their daily work product, remain objects of supreme derision. It is especially upsetting to the elitists of the fourth estate to have to entertain the possibility that a police officer might be able to earn as much or more! Ergo, the resulting voyeuristic pleasure with printing our salaries each year and making fun of us.
Smug and snug behind a talk-show microphone or ensconced in a warm, safe office, our detractors work in unison to first embarrass and denigrate police officers and then create an issue where none existed. They ignore facts and intentionally print. When confronted with this blatant misinformation by Sgt. Rick Pedrini of the Arlington P. But of course, the damage was already done. Likewise, the Globe operates in similar fashion. I assume all letters to the editor at the Globe from my e-mail address are just automatically dumped.
They set the agenda, they determine what, why, when and how an issue will be presented. Our detractors in the local media, however, masquerade as unbiased protectors of free speech while denying they have any anti-police, political agenda. In other words, they lie.

My wife was asleep, her head on my chest, My daughter beside me, angelic in rest. Outside the snow fell, a blanket of white, Transforming the yard to a winter delight. The sparkling lights in the tree I believe, Completed the magic that was Christmas Eve. My eyelids were heavy, my breathing was deep, Secure and surrounded by love I would sleep. In perfect contentment, or so it would seem, So I slumbered, perhaps I started to dream.
My soul gave a tremble, I struggled to hear, And I crept to the door just to see who was near. Standing out in the cold and the dark of the night, A lone figure stood, his face weary and tight. A soldier, I puzzled, some twenty years old, Perhaps a Marine, huddled here in the cold. Alone in the dark, he looked up and smiled, Standing watch over me, and my wife and my child.
Put down your pack, brush the snow from your sleeve, You should be at home on a cold Christmas Eve! For barely a moment I saw his eyes shift, Away from the cold and the snow blown in drifts.. Then he bent and he carefully pulled from his bag, The red, white, and blue I can live through the cold and the being alone, Away from my family, my house and my home. I can stand at my post through the rain and the sleet, I can sleep in a foxhole with little to eat. I can carry the weight of killing another, Or lay down my life with my sister and brother..
Who stand at the front against any and all, To ensure for all time that this flag will not fall. For when we come home, either standing or dead, To know you remember we fought and we bled. Is payment enough, and with that we will trust, That we mattered to you, as you mattered to us. A similar riot occurred after the World Series victory against Colorado. It is fairly obvious that few, if any, of you grew up in the neighborhoods of Boston, because if you did, you would possess at least the minimum amount of common sense which would allow you to understand the following simple, basic rules: And year-old Monica Majewski, Mass.
College of Art and Design, Come on down! Oh, Monica, dear sweet, Monica, from what little liberal environ doth we hail? Viva la revolucion, Monique! The freezing hard cement bench, the horribly ugly steel toilet! Has the BPD offended your tender. Hey, Monica, on behalf of the entire BPD, go get a life, little girl. Undoubtedly, Monica will be meeting with. Can you believe this crap? Mathew Jaquet, 18, an Emerson College freshman, was quoted as follows: They scream about their rights while having no idea about their responsibilities.
They think that the middle of a riot is a good time to play ACLU lawyer and Judge Judy in front of cops being pelted with rocks and piss. An important lawyer from Long Island or Wellesley? How about walking in our shoes for a day? How about letting us throw bottles, rocks, urine and feces at YOU? But when we do act, we get criticized and accused of being the Gestapo. Grow up, act like responsible adults, and when a cop tells you to move or leave the area, do so without argument and immediately.
Wreaths and garland hung on the city light poles while sale signs plastered each store front window. The Christmas carolers at the corner sang with conviction as last minute shoppers searched through the store shelves. Christmas cards hung from the door trim while decorations and the smell of their Douglas Fir tree greet the guest.
The magic of Christmas fills the household. They anticipated Christmas morning to find out what treasures await them. Later, Officer Allen hugs and kisses his wife and sons and leaves. Officer Allen arrives at District 14 for his morning watch. Officer Allen takes his seat and revs up the engine with the left hand throttle, and hand shifts it into gear. It allowed the right handed officer to keep up with the chase while being free to shoot at a fleeing suspect with his right hand. While patrolling the streets of Brighton on this Holy Night at Sparks ignite as the kickstand bounces off the street.
Officer Allen looks down and to the rear to investigate the trouble when the bike starts to wobble and gain momentum. Officer Allen is violently thrown to the cold hard pavement as his fragile body rolls and comes to a silent stop. Regan witnesses the horrible event in front of him. Walsh of Washington Street hears the crash and comes running from his home to help. Both citizens carry the unconscious officer into his house and summons the police. A district ambulance responds at Doctor Spellman examined Officer Allen who sustained a fracture of the skull.
Allen of Saugus, MA. The magic of Christmas quickly disappears for the Allen family. Jubilation is replaced with sadness and despair. The presents under the tree go unnoticed. The Christmas feast in the refrigerator will serve another purpose. Many will come back to the house after the funeral, but who will have an appetite?
Christmas is tarnished for evermore. Allen was born February 3, in Revere, MA, and was 32 years old when he died. He left behind a wife, Wilhelmina and two young sons, Kenneth and Harold. Officer Allen, you are gone, but not forgotten. Stay Alert, Stay Alive. Arlington Cemetery at Christmas Rest easy, sleep well my brothers. Know the line has held, your job is done.
Rest easy, sleep well. Others have taken up where you fell, the line has held. Peace, peace, and farewell The owner, Merrill Worcester, not only provides the wreaths, but covers the trucking expense as well. Also, most years, groups of Maine school kids combine an educational trip to Washington, DC with this event to help out. Making this even more remarkable is the fact that Harrington is in one the poorest parts of the state. A distraught woman above screams out to a stranger to call police because she is being beaten in apartment Upon arrival, both cruisers park in front of the vintage six story brick building.
The saviors walk up to the front entrance and Officer Sergei scans over the large menu of apartment door bells and picks Only a speckle of its office lights were on making one think they should be where everyone else is: Landmarks surround this upscale neighborhood in the Back Bay such as the Berklee College of Music, Massachusetts Avenue Bridge, and the multi-million dollar condos where the socialites hold their noses high. The abundance of trees that were strate-. The large menacing statues in the Commonwealth Avenue Mall even gave the fearless a cause to look over their shoulder in suspicion.
However, even in this enchanted part of the city lay its problems and this night would forever more change the lives of the four responding Officers. She is afraid to open her apartment front door because she believes her male cousin that beat her is in the hallway. Horribly enough, one of the buttons pressed calls attention to a hell-being. This pariah, Ted Jeffery Otsuki, A. This apartment would serve as a safe house for a small gang that planned to rob local banks.
Otsuki is wanted for a Federal parole violation in the Southern District of Texas, and faces up to ten years in federal prison. The criminal grabs his Sig Sauer semiautomatic 9mm pistol and makes his egress out the back window, and jumps to the ground below into the rear courtyard. At this time Officers Torres and Rogers decide to head to the rear of the building to search for a back entrance. They walk and turn left onto Massachusetts Avenue from Commonwealth Avenue and turn into Public Alley on their left.
As Officer Torres and Rogers walk into the alley with their Mag light beaming, they observe a tall Asian male wearing a jacket standing behind an eight foot high chain link fence that cordons off the rear of Commonwealth Avenue from the alley. The individual appeared to be hiding. The officers start to make their way towards the alley. Officers Torres and Rogers order the suspect to climb over the fence and good and evil come face to face. The suspect immediately attempts to run towards Massachusetts Avenue. However, Officers Torres and Rogers grab and place the individual against the fence with his hands up.
Officer Torres places one hand on the suspect to pat him down for weapons when the suspect quickly reaches into his shoulder holster and grabs his 9mm pistol. The peaceful evening suddenly erupts into a life or death struggle. Officer Torres hears a bang and instantaneously feels pain rip into his chest. For a street cop, bad things go down in. Shit happens faster then you can think. Your outer body experience begins.
Time stops; motion is blurred, and sound is distorted. Your heart pounds like the pistons in a speeding out of control locomotive. Blood races to your extremities and your endorphins kick in. The madman fires twice at Officer Rogers missing him, and turns his focus back onto Officer Torres who is running desperately seeking cover. The assassin chases after Officer Torres and opens fire again on the wounded officer. Fire erupts out of the 9mm muzzle while hot brass shell casings eject in succession and bounce off the asphalt with a hollow ring.
The 9mm bullets strike him in the left arm and right buttocks. Officers Sergei and Kennedy hear the shots and quickly glance at each other baffled and immediately start racing to the alleyway. Officer Torres bleeding and in pain finds cover behind a parked motor vehicle and readies his revolver. The opposing forces nearly run into each other.
I was two or three steps ahead of Roy running closest to the wall when the suspect exited out of the alley. He see us, then unloads his firearm at us. I was just able to hug the wall and I raised my firearm, took aim and fired one shot. I could see people in the background. I chased the suspect around the corner of Marlboro Street but lost sight of him.
I can hear Jorge around the corner in pain so I went back to help him. I then realized Roy was shot too. I had no idea he was shot. Everything happened so fast. It was all over in about a minute and a half. Officer Torres fires off four rounds at the fleeing bastard. Book two starts only a few weeks after the first one ends.
