What you need to do is productive thinking and less complaining. Here's a free business idea for you. Buy a truck and go around picking up all of the coachs you see on the curb. Then rent a store and open a used furniture store. It's a win win for you.

It will not work. We cannot pay for salaries, pensions and be told that these recipients still want to earn free dividends as all other workers take the hits!

I respect firefighters but we all must understand that the stock market must go! t need to get back to WORK!!!!

I will tell you that I work physically harder than a fire fighter and/or a police officer. They have to begin to respect this fact!

Citizens got killed dung 911 but we seemed to have isolated "first responders" from everyone else. It was an American tragedy! They didn't Hijack a fire truck as they hijacked panes full of American citizens!

Yes, the thought of entire firs stations of employees being wiped out was horrible as was the images of family member talking t their loved ones before they were flown into a building!

This isn't anti firefighter as it is PRO EQULITY!!! We asked the nation not to buy big SUVs because doing so supports terrorism due to them being gas guzzlers then we offer these big SVs to "first responders" for zero interests!

You need an open mind in order to see the double talk and the beginning of the two different set of rules. This is where the divide began!!!!

It is like stating, African Americans, Women and gays are equal to white straight males but we are going to specially treat straight white men to higher pay and better benefits!

You're absolutely right about the SUVs. Why can't first responders and their equipment all drive a Prius. I'm feeling what you have to say and I can tell that you are highly intelligent.

Here's another idea, let's do away with ambulances and instead all EMTs should where rollerskates and push wheelchairs to accident scenes. I'm starting to feel the vibe and like the way you think.

OK, Lynch, this is not the first time you have posted this equine scatology in the hopes that people will buy it without any questions.

Please tell us what it is that you work harder at than cops or firefighters (or, for that matter, anyone else). Posting wild rants, taking photos, writing down license plate numbers, et cetera, don't really count. So please tell us what it is that you do for work.

And as for your contention that "They have to begin to respect this fact!", that is only in you're unbalanced and deranged mind.

Who is we? You and Peaches? In any event, the fact that the RMV revoked your license, thereby reducing carbon emissions, offsets the use of SUVs.

What do you do all day, watching anti-cigarette commercials on tv and then using the name? At least you can be creative and come up with an original screen name.

Make up all the things you want but we will see who has the last laugh when the brilliant genius Mr. Lynch becomes Mayor, Pesident of the University an FBI agent and the Editor at the Sentinel all in the same year. If you don't call that hard working then I don't know what is. Some of you seem jealous and have no faith.

I noticed in this story that our proud Police Chief uses the reasoning that "people are uncomfortable calling the police department". What a bunch of crapola.

It's more like people have learned to expect nothing at all when it comes to calling the police department to report drug dealing and/or suspicious activety.

Of course, now that this story has received some Press; a cop or two will most likely drive through this area on occasion.

The sad truth is that the FPD typically puts little to no effort whatsover into proactively prowling the known troubled spots in our fine burg. It's a hell of a lot safer for the cop that way and it reduces the amount of paperwork that a cop has to sruggle with when it comes to arresting a drug dealer. It's easier to write a speeding ticket or a defective equipment ticket to a basically law abiding citizen anyway; and to pass it off as "good sound police work" to the Taxpaying Public.....

Dear Mr. Lynch, I have to strongly disagree with you about the FPD or the campus police being reactive and not proactive. The FPD keep a close eye on YOU and the campus police has banned YOU. I would consider these effective proactive measures for the safety of city residents. Also stop crying about your rights being violated. In the eyes of society you lost your rights after you murdered that kid.

Ah yes....there it is....the comment about me being unemployed and me getting a freebie from the Government. You are certainly predictable. But, deliberately misleading the Topix Forum Readers by passing me off as a Taker rather than a Giver is just plain wrong. As I have reminded you and your pals over the years, I work and I pay income taxes. And, I own property and I also pay Real Estate Taxes. So, I pay into the syetem; I do not take out of the system.
But, back to the story at hand. Even the title of this story "Residents of Fitchburg Marshall Street taking back the neighborhood" quickly makes the Reader ask the question "why do the residents have to resort to taking back the neighborhood; and how come the residents apparently can't get the police to step up to the non stop drug dealing that is blatantly obvious?"
When police ignore drug dealing operations that take place 7 days a week on city streets in broad daylight, it can only be explained by the following:
1) The Police aren't very skilled at their jobs and they somehow do not see what everyone else sees.
2) The Police are afraid of getting hurt or killed if they do step up to the real criminals.
3) The Police don't give a sh#t; and they are therefore Takers and not Givers as far as sponging off the system.
4) The Police are tied in with the drug dealing operations and they are profitting from it.
5) The Police prefer to ignore the real crime in the hopes of convincing the Taxpaying Public that they are understaffed and underfunded; when in fact they are not.
So, which one is it?
Time to release your income tax return so the voters can view it. You do know you have to if you are running for a public office?

Okay I will give you some tips so you can kinda "fit in" with the average resident.

The common homeowner usually uses the term "property tax" and not "real estate tax". I never heard anyone refer to "real estate" tax unless it is probate court. The tax is automatically payed with the mortgage payment unless you own the land outright.

So you now need to inform the readers where this property is that you own because I went to City Hall in Fitchburg and the surrounding communities and they have no record of you owning any property?

Also you understand when you run for public office you have opened yourself up to all types of scrutiny and this is all legal because voters have the right to know everything about you. This is why there are negative campaign ads on tv directed towards politicians seeking office.

Running for office you also have to release all income and campaign documents and statements. Your last income tax return has to be released and posted, you do know that right?

I know you understand because you have seen the politicians income tax returns posted on tv and reported in the news. You are not any different since you stated you are running for office. If you didn't have to release these statements then the other politicians would have never released theirs either.

So what are you waiting for?

You always think that anyone who talks logically concerning the FPD is that it is me.

I must state that it has gotten better at the FPD. It still has a way to go. I think the obstacles within are beginning to be clear to the FPD. We have new officers who I see are very hard working.

It is the middle of this force who is lost, lazy and corrupt. They know who they are, it is their relatives who post out here as well as some of them.

They have told me to my face that they are corrupt.

Hey, Lynch-
I'm sure that many people tell you certain things to your face. Things like;

"Please put down those binoculars. You're scaring my kids."

or...

"Hey weirdo, get the f&#k outta my driveway."

or...

"If I catch you taking photos of my wife and kids again I'm gonna give you a knuckle sandwich."

or even..

"Hey Lynch. Where do you think you're going? You know you've been banned from here. Now turn around and screw or I'm calling the cops."

But someone telling you that they are corrupt? Nah. Don't believe it. You're lying. Again.
