Heroin Overdoses On The Rise - SNN #39 - 5/5/2015 a

Overdoses from heroin and other opioids are on the rise in Somerville and police and other agencies are fighting back with more than arrests.

During the first three months of 2015, at least six people died; double the number who died in all of 2013, according to the Somerville Police Department.

“One is too many,” Somerville Police Chief David Fallon told Somerville Neighborhood News (SNN). “Think about the loss of potential to the community, how that effects the family, the immediate family. It’s devastating.”

It's so easy to point fingers
Play the blame game

He died, she died
Shot dead


Kill some cops
Shoot for the head
Remember your name
Gain some fame

It's easy to find a target
to hate

Easy to use race to bait

Blame the President,
Governors, Mayors
The Police

Agree Disagree
He said She said

Our country is at war
Us - Them mind set

No Peace

Yell, scream, rant, rave,
Comment, post, write, boast

Inciting riot? Inciting calm?
Call for healing or harm?

A worker was killed Friday at the Russia Wharf development site at 270 Congress St. after a heavy object fell on him in the construction site. Police and a medical rescue team arrived on the scene around 10am.

The worker was taken to Boston Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

“It is with great sadness that we have confirmed that one fatality has occurred as a result of an accident,” the developer, Boston Properties, said in a statement. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim’s family at this time.”

Since when are the MBTA Transit Police allowed to make traffic stops on Huntington Avenue? Spotted at ~10:10, between South Huntington and Mission Hill (nowhere near a bus stop or any other MBTA property, and no buses or trolleys in sight, either): male and female officers from one of the "wagon" Transit Police units, inspecting the license of a driver and speaking to her.

A little background on how complicated Chapter 90 authority can be.

He was a Russian. He had a camera. And he was photographing a natural gas tank.

So naturally police thought he was a terrorist.

Police in Lynn, Mass. became so suspicious of Stanislav Arkhipov, they not only arrested him on trespassing charges, they ended up contacting the State Anti-Terrorism Unit.

The MBTA is nearly doubling the number of cash machines within its subway stations - and the cash-strapped transit agency will pick up an extra $226,400 a year in the process.

The T’s board of directors yesterday OK’d going ahead with leases with Bank of America, TD Banknorth and Select A Branch Inc., to put a total of 19 ATMs in stations, up from 10 that were previously provided by Citizens Bank under a prior contract.

Bank of America won with a $30,000 bid the right to place just one ATM in the busy Park Street station.

Carpundit is walking home yesterday when he sees a seemingly empty Boston police cruiser in front of DeLuca's. Only it isn't:

... When I got close enough, I saw that the officer was in the car - sound asleep. The window was down, the car running, and he was slumped slightly to the right, head on chest, drooling just a little. This was in broad daylight, at commuter time, in front of a popular market. I went inside to buy my wine (and, I confess, a little goat cheese with garlic and herbs along with some Carr's crackers), chuckling.

You can read the entire Stern Commission report on Victoria Snelgrove's death.

Carpundit reads about the report and concludes two factors in particular contributed:

... Robert O'Toole was a hothead who shouldn't have been in that supervisory position that night; and the FN303 is a deadly force weapon that should not be used in crowd control. ...
