Has started to crumble. We know how this story ends but we don't know how this story began in Woodstock NH.

Cops have ratted cops out for this stuff since the 1970s...how do people think guys like this get caught?

it's because he got publicly arrested in a completely different state by a completely different police force. Unless this was all some complicated interstate sting, I'm not seeing where anyone ratted anyone else out here.

BPD only covered up for Pat Rose for a few decades before he got caught.

No one covers up for him. Usually child rapists don’t like to share their hobbies with others.

I'm 100% sure cops had suspicions and buried them because of the damage it would cause, same as the Church did.

Especially if they had victims reporting it. Those guys at the top look good when they make arrests for cop pedofiles, they don’t care how it looks.

Most of E13 could use some amphetamines. They are so sleepy.

Once a year and I’m sure they are drug tested if involved in MVA’s

Does BPD or MBTA drug tests include testing for meth, speed, steroids or oxys?

And that program has worked so well to purge the ranks.

that BPD is grossly underpaid. This poor lad needed to work a second job to make ends meet.

Everyone had been complaining that they take forever to close their cases. Maybe this was a sort of performance enhancing drug to deal with that.

for January 23rd but I wonder what 'incident' led them to detain, find drugs, and still release the guy?

Only to be arrested 2 months later?!
