    R.I.P. officer your tour is over.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    This IS powerful...& shows the danger of police work!

    and this op-ed piece: http://www.boston.com/community/foru...era/80/7974306 where the last paragraph
    "And the truth today is that one young police officer, brave and without fear, fights for his life in a hospital while another man, a wrecking crew all by himself, is dead. John Moynihan was shot on streets where he sought to protect residents from career criminals just like Angelo West who lived and died while ruining the lives around him." sets the facts in stone: more often the actuality of life in the field of LE.

    Happy to declare that Officer Moynihan is in ACTIVE recovery & rehab, discharged from the acute care hospital!

    Fortunately, Officer John Moynihan survived (rapid EMS response & BMC's awesome medical care!) and the shooter with a 357 who decided to take on the BPD response by trading gunfire, he did not.

    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    We are the watchers. We are witnesses. We see what has gone before. We see what happens now, at this dangerous moment in human history. We see what's going to happen - what will surely happen - unless we come together: we - the Peoples of all Nations - to restore peace and harmony and balance to the Earth, our Mother.

    Tulessa,you are correct. The officer is in a coma (praying for him), and the shooter is dead.

    I'm so sorry!
    I could swear I came back and edited that!
    The first time I read it I misread it. When I realized my mistake I corrected it.

    I really shouldn't try to do more than one thing at a time!
