Man arrested for South End attack on Sunday


Boston Police report arresting Michael Powers, 34, of Boston, on charges he attacked a woman on Harrison Avenue in the South End on Sunday afternoon.

Police report officers arrested Powers around 11:25 a.m. outside Boston Medical Center, at the corner of Massachusetts and Harrison avenues on charges including aggravated assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon, kidnapping and assault by means of a dangerous weapon.

He also had several outstanding warrants out of Boston, Brockton and Lowell for assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, breaking and entering, larceny and possession of Class A drugs, police say.

Innocent, etc.



Goes to 3 different courts for crimes, makes bail each time with the promise to return 3 times and doesn't.
What am I missing????

Perhaps he was granted bail two additional times before he failed to appear for one of the cases. Courts are in three separate counties which complicates things.

3 different counties 'complicating' things = piss-poor excuse. Like committing a DUI in another state and continuing to drive in MA because 'complications' = piss-poor excuse.

The days of not knowing criminal background are over.

so it can auto-fill purchase suggestions before I type it in like $&@^$%^ spme Minority Report/Big Brother fever dream but Massachusetts (one of the smartest and wealthiest states in the Union) can't communicate between counties.

That's downright embarrassing and *imo, criminally negligent.

*"my opinion" contains precisely zero legal background
