    Son of the Deputy Chief here charged with armed robbery in drug-deal-gone-bad situation (it has also been suggested that he used one of his dad's guns). That would all seem bad enough. But wait there's more. Now it turns out that Detective Goodbuddy is leaning on witnesses:

    This is the type of crap that hurts all of us except the liberals who want to believe that this is the way it goes as a matter of course.

    A lot of people have ****head kids.

    I'd reserve judgement on the copper until more details emerge. Sounds hinky... kind of hard for a cop to intimidate witnesses in a crowded courthouse.

    Apparently some MA agencies don't require you to live in the state? Brooks is listed as a NH resident...

    Anyone can have a child that goes bad.

    As the article noted, "no details of the alleged intimidation were made public and the police reports were ordered impounded."

    The intimidation happened during open court? Maybe this is political payback. :dunno:

    Lawrence MA is not one of MASS finest towns.
    However, lets see first what sticks before we judge.

    It just keeps getting better, don't it?
    There's no requirement here to live in state. All most agencies require is that you can respond to the station within an hour.

    Now, CA is not the same like the New England states where you can drive through 3 states to get to work, but I guess technically, you can live around Nevada Landing and go to work in Baker, CA or something.

    Same goes for the Oregon or AZ border, I guess.
