WBUR takes us inside the Suffolk County jail building that might be used to house Methadone Mile residents who get involuntarily committed if they refuse to move on their own.

"It's more like a college dorm with a breakout room for programming and smaller rooms where people can have individualized counseling," and will have its own courtroom the sheriff says. But unlike a college dorm, occupants will not be able to leave.

You know when you are heading for victory when anonymous posters attack and ridicule you. It always out of fear, hatred, and jealousy that these "stalker trolls" attack you when you are on the brink of success and triumph.

My good friend Moe Love obviously does not like the fact that yes I am a former Republican. However, fortunately I am in good company.

Gadfly candidate Doug "the Bug" Bennett recently claimed that his latest opponent, Suffolk County Sheriff Steve Tompkins, was formerly registered as a Republican. A quick review of Massachusetts voter records indicate that this is not true and that Sheriff Tompkins has, in fact, always been a registered Democrat. This deception was presumably propagated by Doug the Bug to deter the good Democratic voters of Boston from noting that Doug himself is a Republican who only occasionally registers as a "D" to jump into some race or another of which he's utterly unqualified to be involved.

BOSTON- Steven Tompkins will face a BMC Roxbury District Court Criminal Magistrate over Theft and Property Destruction on September 10, 2013.

Suffolk County Interim Sheriff Steven Tompkins of 106 Williams Street in Hyde Park will face a Criminal Magistrate over the theft and property destruction of rival Sheriff Candidate Douglas Bennett’s campaign signs in Egleston Square in Roxbury last Wednesday August 14, 2013 between 2-3PM.

In many of these thefts and destructions of personal property, Mr. Tompkins, along with another Commonwealth of Massachusetts employee from the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department, proceeded in entering these store fronts and identifying himself as the Sheriff of Suffolk County, pulling out his “sheriff’s badge” and demanding that the store owner remove the sign or they would get “on his (Tompkins') bad side.”

Attached with this press release is:

1. The Notice of the Magistrate Hearing pertaining to BMC Roxbury District Court Criminal Complaint Docket #1302AC001538,

2. Boston Police Department Incident Report #130522530, and

3. A complaint from Bennett to the Massachusetts State Ethics Commission Enforcement Division asking to investigate Tompkins’ actions from August 14, 2013.
