Ok so all this security for the marathon, what about the platform of train stations, parks duringRead More lunch, outdoor concerts, parades and charity walks? Give me a break. All this police presence and money spent and overtime is a scare tactic and can't possibly deter someone determined to carry anything out.

There should be special courts for psych cases just as there are special courts for financial,Read More maritime, juvenile, family and other specific types. This does not mean getting off with any difference in time, but it would mean a more accurate routing and disposition of the individuals. In many cases people do not want to change and would rather be sent to standard jails eventually released and still a danger to society.

Some people do not have even an ember of empathy and need more separation from others and extendedRead More treatment, maybe life long, this may or may not be a case. And, many people just do not have a sense of proportionate response. No matter how trivial the response is irrationally disproportionate.

This is not local news. Why is this article here?
Laurel Anderson April 18, 2014 at 10:09 am
Nothing Is local on here anymore. Terrible decision to drop local editors for this junk no one caresRead More about. I used to love how we knew everything going on around here from the patch. Now nothing...horrible, horrible decision! !!! I keep hoping someone starts their own patch type of thing. I will be dropping this one.

And we don't get any local news. Oxford Patch did not report the burglary's in Oxford.

what else would you expect from this ugly fat loser monkey she should be shot right away- no jailRead More time but dead within 10 minutes of verdict- you wonder why there is so much racism- well here is a prime example of why there is all of it in this country- that monkey is to fat to swing in the trees

I agree with the Judge completely

Fat & ugly, she deserved to be locked up for that alone.

My bad on the 1911's, the only model I want, but you still reinforce my point....I cant haveRead More one....criminals can. And further....we have laws....there is not a gun law vacuum here...more will do nothing.
Wayne Bruce April 18, 2014 at 11:29 am
Eman, the driving license/gun license analogy is both overused and misused. Consider this: it'sRead More possible to get a Class A license in Mass. without ever firing a round (most classes are NOT live fire), yet you need to actually drive a car to get your license. Which is tougher?
Wayne Bruce April 18, 2014 at 11:37 am
Prometheus, you can't have that particular model, no. You can have a lovely one made by Colt or 5 orRead More 6 other manufacturers who have paid for the compliance certification. ;) The fact that criminals can have them is a moot point with the existing laughable laws in most parts of the country, where you can walk into a gun show, not show any ID, and walk out with a duffel full of weapons. It's sick. Friends in LEO have observed this. So, back to your point: you're not able to have a specific model, yet bad guys can. That sucks, no argument at all from me...but shouldn't we be focusing our efforts on keeping bad elements from getting those guns in the first place?

How long are we going to keep throwing parties and concerts keeping the memory of this terroristRead More attack alive and fresh? I see t-shirts, bumper stickers, tattoos, flags, banners, news stories all day everyday, music, large gatherings etc etc....can we move on? Allow victims to heal in private and stop talking about this terrorist and what he did all day. I'll never understand that about our society.

Right and going by the fine which was 589 times the cost of the soda, BP, that did so much damage toRead More the Gulf should be fined .... 2Billion X 589 .... right, not in the Corporate States of America. That isn't going to happen. How about we apply that same fine to Wall Street .. hell they damn near wrecked the world's economy and have you seen any fines near 589 times the damage done? Direct your ire to the right people ...

Stealing is stealing and it costs all of us. People who eat the grapes at the grocery store withoutRead More paying for them, are stealing! Every item stolen adds up to added costs to everyone. I would have told this person to pay up first before the fine but the fine is always going to be more than the item. The fine is prevent the person from doing it again. Parking in my city overnight on the street used to be a $5 fine and so many people did. They have since raised the fines. This winter those overnight cars caused a lot of problems. They could not remove the snow with cars on the street. People don't think of the consequences before doing something wrong. Yes, people do things that are wrong but why does this it right? The 89 cents is really cheap for a soda so it makes sense that they don't allow refills for free. I have seen people using soda machines with their own cups. It ends up costing me for being honest. Eat me!
carrie April 18, 2014 at 11:06 am
This is ridiculous. Let the guy pay on site. Waste of tax payers money. Theft is wrong, but this forRead More some reason seems different as many restaurants do give free refills.

Horses should not be nose to exhaust pipe on city streets. That is cruelty and the horse had hadRead More enough.

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.

Poor horse. I hope someone equine rescue unit will relieve him from his present circumstances andRead More either give him a good home or find him one.

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.

With prices rising in all industries, I call it the disease of liberal Democrats! And it is theRead More disease that will wipe out civilization!
mark April 18, 2014 at 08:23 am
When taxes are imposed on various industries then to stay in business the prices increase on theRead More consumer! Obamacare , gas taxes, payroll taxes, tolls, the proposed soda and candy tax , your tobacco tax is 75% of what the product really costs! Commercial Property tax increases! Do you people see what's going on here? This country is being destroyed by the Democrats! It is starting to resemble The a Soviet Union! We should change the name of this country to the USSA!

This happened years ago in Little Falls, NJ when a child walked out of his house and into theRead More traffice on Route 23 and was killed.....what is wrong with parents? You go to the bathroom you take the child with you!!!!!! Lucky his Gardian Angel was watching over him!

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?
Scott April 18, 2014 at 08:06 am
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.

Ive never been on TalkMansfield nor do I have a linkedin account. We've been over this, I am by noRead More means the gentlemen you are referring to. You've assumed that since my name on a local comment blog has the initials "BH" then I must be the only person in Mansfield with those initials whom you can find on the internet. Nice try.

I also find it humorous that you are trying to either make me mad or "expose" me orRead More whatever you are trying to do. I'm not on the other site, even if I was I'm not sure what your point would be. These are comment sections made for comments, anybody can say what they please. It's actually even more humorous that you are attempting to do some investigative work and wasting your time trying to find out the identities of anonymous commenters. Seems like a good use of time.
