Okay genius, you reread the articles, gregory spyropoulos was found bleeding from a head wound,(original article) and I'm not speaking, I am typing, he left him bleeding in the street, we don't have to argue about the details, the D.A.'s office is going to lay them out soon enough. You were trying to justify behavior by pronouncing that most of the population has anger issues and "what would you do? run like a bitch" there you go... justifying. Maybe you could use your degree in psychology to gain some insight as to how you yourself could justify this behavior. Put that degree to work for you.
You who thinks they are so smart.

And Yes there is a problem within law enforcement concerning CRIMINAL police!! The more it becomes accepted the worse it becomes. There are ZERO consequences for these PIGS!
No one has the guts to take a stand against corruption! Some people are in fear of losing their jobs if they speak up! Just go ask all the employees within Fitchburg court! Their is wide knowledge of the corruption within Fitchburg amoung these employees but the stay quiet due to fear of the corrupt!!
You feel that this corruption is justified and needed!! Let me tell you, it severs the trust of the police and the community as a whole! This is why many state "in Fitchburg, it is tough to judge who is more corrupt, the criminals or the cops"!
This statement is spoken of in Worcester and many other local city and towns! Yes, Chief Demoura began to address this problem but he has taken less than half measures by allowing such behaviors to go unchecked.
Respect goes a lot further over brawn and brutality! Others are constantly watching these behaviors and then they relay what they seen around town. Do you think this is unrealistic?? Then you are a fool who purposefully puts on the blinders!
Yes, I will always stand against corrupt criminal police, ALWAYS!! And YES, it is NAZISM in my real world thinking that I am against!
so, you are running for public office and yet you constantly refer to law enforcement as PIGS? The only respect you are going to earn is that of the criminal element, like yourself.

You act like you just beamed into planet earth from another planet and have no clue!

You know the difference between a "pig" and a police officer. You are just attempting to realign my words as does Stamos.

I would stand on any podium and state that I feel that criminal police are "pigs" !! I am not running from this fact and strong belief.

So, What is your point?

Tell me, why would someone put a sticker to ID themselves on their vehicle? WHY?? It is not just being narcisstic like having a low numbered plate, he goes a level beyond attempting to get out of being held accountable for breaking a law!
So now putting a sticker on one's car makes them a narcissist? Wow, you are reaching!

Yes, I was beaten while handcuffed to a pole as the pig hit me dozens of times consequtively in the same spot on my head. This pig was stopped by an African American Police Officer as he displayed his disgust with the PIGS behavior!
Yes, I witnessed Corrupt criminal COs beat unarmed inmates to unconsciousness. I seen my share of brutality inflicted by CORRUPT CRIMINAL police!
Unlike you; I seperate the good law abiding police officers from the corrupt criminal PIGS! I will never stop stating the TRUTH as much as it makes you angry! It is your guilt that dwells inside of you!
While I was incarcerated I knew some strict by the book officers. I give them the respect! Even the criminals around me that always talked bad of the COs who were trying to catch them doing wrong, they even understood and could clearly see the difference between a good cop and a bad cop!!
There is a difference and that is a FACT of life! Unfortunately the police Unions have decided to defend the deplorable corrupt police along with those that needed their protections properly!! They do not know the difference!!
To you, a badge is a badge!!! This is a LIE!! This in itself is CRIMINAL! I have known some bad cops that were big drug dealers, I have read of many corrupt police being charged with Murder, rape, assault, bank robberry and the list goes on.
For you to constantly sit there and spew your BS amoung all the realities concerning these corrupt, criminal PIGS is deplorable! You lose the argument automatically as society is fully aware of this reality!!
No officer should be allowed to break any laws!!! All should be held accountable!!! They are CRIMINALS!!!!!
Stamos the idiot can continue to spew his republican nonsense as if people do not know the truth! The ONLY reason any Republican is elected is due to LOW VOTER TURNOUT!
so you admit to being hit repeatedly in the head? explains a lot!

And here Stamos. Quote this one for the gipper!
Kevin Lynch is against criminal/corrupt police as he considers them to be "PIGS". Kevin Lynch supports law abiding police officers 100%!!!!
There are "PLENTY" of qualified Law abiding police officers in the making so there is NO NEED to protect the criminal corrupt ones!!!
And YES Stamos Kevin Lynch did propose the firering of the entire FPD as he seen the department as not fixable! Does this mean that every officer was corrupt? Absolutely not!!!
The federal law allowed for the rehirering of a percentage of the FPD officers but there is an allowance percentage cap! And Yes, I thought that this cap would have prevented the city from rehirering law abiding police which I was suggesting for other cities to hire!
Unlike the city councilors and the Mayor I would speak honestly concerning all these facts. I would state these facts before any FPD contract was rubber stamped! This rubber stamping increases the power of the police Union which makes it more difficult to address criminal cops.
Do we really have to break down the "rubber stamp" definition? Do we really have to break down the "good ole boy network" disease??
The "good ole boy network" protects corruption!!!!!
Why are you talking about yourself in the third person?

UPDATE: Suspect arraigned in Fitchburg man's beating death

Sentinel & Enterprise
Posted: 06/21/2012 03:11:10 PM EDT





FITCHBURG -- A man has been arrested and charged with manslaughter in the beating death of Gregory Spyropoulos, 50, of Princeton Road, who was found bleeding from a head wound in the street Sunday night and died Wednesday, according to the Worcester District Attorney's Office.

Glenn E. Lowell Sr., 50, of Gage Street pleaded not guilty to manslaughter and assault and battery charges at his arraignment Thursday in Fitchburg District Court.

Prosecutors said Lowell was driving near Cleghorn and Daniels streets Sunday night when Spyropoulos yelled at him to slow down. At that point, Lowell stopped his car, assaulted Spyropoulos, then got back into his car and left the scene, according to prosecutors.

Lowell turned himself in to police Wednesday after media reports of the assault.

Although prosecutors asked that Lowell be held on $25,000 bail, he was released on personal recognizance on the condition that he stay at home, report to probation daily by phone and once a week in person.

Spyropoulos was conscious but unable to give officers much information about how he was hurt when they found him Sunday around 8:40 p.m. at Cleghorn and Daniels streets, Fitchburg Capt. Paul Bozicas said Tuesday. As his bleeding worsened, Spyropoulos lost consciousness and did not wake up, his family said.

Family members made the decision to take him off life support after his condition continued to decline following his injuries.

They decided to have his organs donated, said Suzanne Swanson, Spyropoulos' niece.

Speaking about nut cases, I'm beginning to hear this story about this crazy guy who went on a business trip to Florida in 2008 and ended up fooling around with a cop's girlfriend. Well, you know how affairs go. They VERY rarely turn out like planned. SO the sordid mess turned into a "he said she said" sort of thing,(like affairs often do) and the dummy got arrested, tried, and pled out on some burglary charges. I guess he broke into the woman's hotel room. Who knows what he was planning to do-he sounds dangerous! Made its way all the way back to Massachusetts where the woman's boyfriend confronted him, and lo and behold, doesn't it even get messier! I guess the guy tried to blame everybody but himself for not keeping his pecker in his pants including the woman, Florida authorities, heck, even the Massachusetts authorities! BUT who wouldn't ? With a family, and a career, and some mental illnesses, lying just came natural to the guy. Sort of like Bill Clinton, eh? Lie, lie, lie. Lie to the point of actually believing the lies! That's called PATHOLOGICAL I believe.
SO now every problem in the world is the cops' fault, and he spends his spare time maligning them, instead of accepting responsibility for his own stupidity.
Sound familiar? Well, if this isn't the truth, someone should tell me. I'd love to know the truth. Even if it wasn't from you. But I wouldn't expect the truth from the likes of you. You certainly do have a vested interest in this sordid mess, correct?
See YOU at the probation office!!! Ha ha!
PS-Can't you do better things than this with an MBA?
Hey Civil, any update on that case?? Didn't that person just get fired?
