Well, I'm sure we're all just a bunch of turds for "judging a book by the cover". I'm sureRead More there's a perfectly innocent explanation for him to be carrying a knife while out on the town. Lots of decent people do that. Of course, then there's this: http://www.kearneyhub.com/news/local/man-accused-in-skull-fracture-assault/article_bdb764d5-3f71-594f-9bc3-b179ff55c58f.html and this is interesting, too: http://www.splcenter.org/blog/2013/07/25/members-of-new-skinhead-gang-accused-in-two-states/

@Kim Johnson. Not that it matters, but you have your facts wrong. President Barack Obama nominatedRead More Leonhart for the position of DEA Administrator on 2/2/2010. The issue here is people should be able to shop at a store without being followed or have the NSA track each word I am typing.

I'll do my shopping in either Lowe's or Wal-Mart's garden centers, at least for now, and only useRead More cash.

Girls socks? Parts of the anatomy is one thing, but for crying out loud....stinky old socks? YouRead More could probably saturate the socks with goat cheese and sell the pair to the guy for a tidy sum of money. That's one way to sock-it-to-him!!! :-)

Justice For All April 16, 2014 at 04:21 am
This guy is demonstrating a psychological pattern of a much deeper paraphilia. From a criminalRead More standpoint, he is a pedophile, pure and simple. To rationalize his deviate behavior as some innocently misguided adult fetish is simply wrong. There is absolutely no comparison. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- He crossed a significant line when he engaged in contacting children. To comfortably contact children like he has, takes a level of courage that is only manifested after someone sinks to a significant depravity. It is actually a type of milestone in a psychosis, if you will. If you think that this is just about dirty socks, then you simply can't grasp the dark truth. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I have no doubt that this is just the tip of the iceberg. I can reasonably suspect that there are many more victims who have yet to be identified, whether they are local kids or members of this guy's own family. I have no doubt that other people who know this 31 year old man are probably not surprised that this happened, although pedophiles tend to be adept at concealing their behavior. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I don't want to second-guess the investigator handling this case, but given the information just from local news sources it seems that a bail enhancement was justified. Perhaps $50-75k bail instead of a mere $5k. A similar case in Northridge set the pervert's bail at $150,000, albeit there was an allegation of false imprisonment: http://articles.latimes.com/2014/feb/26/local/la-me-foot-fetish-arrest-20140227 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- BTW: What's going on with this guys face? Does he look like he has plucked eyebrows and lipstick? Very weird, to say the least.

true dat. there is alot of waste in this country, perhaps tis the reason we are trillions of dollarsRead More in the hole!! Our Founding Fathers would be rolling in their graves if they knew what is going on in our country, going right down the shitter......
steve forte April 16, 2014 at 04:40 am
How broke are we you ask? Well we are 17trillion $ broke. Is that a lot of money? Well lets see. AllRead More single family homes combined in this country are worth about 16Trillion $. If none of us had a mortgage and everyone sold their home and gave the money to the gvmt we would still be broke. That's effin broke.

Hey John Rithouse, if you don't like it, then don't come here for news. Guys like you make this sameRead More annoying comment every day. Are you mentally slow?
rubberband April 15, 2014 at 10:28 am
This was out in my neck of the woods. All really great kids, college bound and starting their adultRead More lives. Having lost a child, I can say these families will mourn for as long as they live, and will have to find a "new normal" as EVERYTHING is changed for them now...I wish them strength, there is nothing quite like burying a child. Appreciated are the messages of respect and sympathy. It can be annoying to get news from areas other than your own, however the new Patch is doing things differently, and show no evidence of changing it back.....my best advice would be to ignore stories not in your area, and to write your editor directly, and share your comments with those who can make changes.

I would agree with the exception of window replacement. That is one investment that anybody canRead More appreciate. This fad with crown moldings, granite countertops, tile flooring, etc, is frivolous. You are only going to get so much for your house when compared to the neighborhood, not matter how much you put into it...
V.W.D.S. April 14, 2014 at 09:25 pm
Well I am on the market now and I can say with the multitude of buyers walking through the feelingRead More is they definately want the 'fad' stuff. Still no sale, i'm bare bones priced right and ready to sell. I have contemplated putting the money into the bling but I really won't make that much more on the sale after I add up the costs, yet no doubt in my mind I'd be in escrow right now if I had laidout the cash........

Kathleen April 15, 2014 at 06:47 pm
OK, let me take a wild guess here...This is Massachusetts so it shouldn't be that difficult toRead More figure it out. These two crack heads in their 40's are on SSI, claiming some phony disability and are living on SSI in a Section 8 apartment in a senior complex. Probably a good guess right? They put senior citizens in grave danger and will probably get a slap on the wrist and sent right back to live in the elderly housing... just a guess of course but probably pretty accurate. Either that or they are living in an apartment with one of their parents and are not on the lease but yet still live there...only in MA!
Geoff Burton April 15, 2014 at 07:40 pm
Kathleen I don't get the Massachusetts reference, having said that I think your about right.
century April 15, 2014 at 08:30 pm
Kathleen, your right. As for housing, the less number of homeless, the more grant money the city andRead More state receives for housing. It happens all the time in Pennsylvania. Free loaders like the crackheads mentioned in the story is why people who have legimate disabilities are judged as liars and have to fight for their rights.

D Penta April 15, 2014 at 02:29 pm
It says Around Town but the headline is UTAH. Utah is not near Natick!! I think everyone should notRead More open an article on Patch unless they see their town's name in the headline. So If it doesn't say Natick, then we all know it is not LOCAL to the Natick Patch. The less clicks these Patch sites get, the fewer advertisers they will get and then perhaps they will realize if we want sensational news from across the country we'd go back to Patch's former owners AOL and the HuffPost! Those here from other Patch sites - I think you should do the same only click on articles that mention your community's name. No name. No click!

John the reports stated the vehicle was on fire. This was before the crash. Maybe the driver saw hisRead More tractor on fire and had a massive heart attack? Who knows.
John Chrusciel April 14, 2014 at 11:21 am
Decaturette back in the days before collapsible steering shafts it was a bad idea to wear a seatbeltRead More because during a head on collision the steering shaft would act as a spear and run you through. I never wore a seat belt my old MGA or TR3. However, this is no longer a problem because of modern design and engineering. Some people will hem and haw about being t-boned at an intersection and the harm that a three point harness can do. I personally know many people who have had their lives saved by seat belts. I always wear mine. They should afford children the same opportunity to protect themselves. A 25 mile per hour head on collision with another vehicle travelling at 25 miles per hour is like a 50 mile per hour collision. So I do not buy the argument about shorter distances nor do I buy the article about lower driving speeds. What can is cost to have simple lap belts installed in a school bus? Are we that greedy?
Becky April 14, 2014 at 01:03 pm
I think the real reason they don't install them is that it would raise a whole other level ofRead More liability -- like that then they would have to keep the seatbelts in good working order, and maybe enforce that people wear them. Could I sue them because another passenger flew out of their seat and hit me. Etc, etc.

Igor April 15, 2014 at 04:33 pm
Well maybe they should change the law and give people who stab other humans longer than 5 years. OneRead More thing to kill an animal for food, it's another thing to do to be sadistic.
