Its usually very difficult for a police officer to enter politics, everything they are trained in and practice during their careers is to do the right thing.

In politics, its special interest groups and following the party line, usually this means the average tax payer gets slammed, which is the Massachusetts way

Maybe they WERE trained in doing the right thing; Jimmy Baby; and maybe that is the reasonable expectation from the general public; as far as how the police SHOULD behave; but you sure as heck don't have to look very far to find countless examples of cops doing the wrong thing.

Gee wizz; right here in beautiful Dracut Mass we have all read stories of cops stealing drugs from evidence trailers; a cop who was slobbering drunk and is stupid enough to walk down the street at night in plainclothes with a shotgun on his shoulder; and now, we read how the star of THIS story was apparently hanging around with his pals in a van
during a a coke sniffing fest; while he was a cop!

So sure; these boobs HAVE been trained on doing the right thing. But; without the proper checks and balances in place; where the public would be policing the police; these boobs get a free pass for just about anything and everything!

I'd just like to thank the voters of Dracut for DUMPING Jimmy O last spring. Now if Warren and his Kool Aid drinking friends love COX. Then lets DUMP him this year.

What happened 25 years ago with tony? It was so long ago. Do you have an article that says he did anything wrong? Please share with me

It was 25 years ago, get over it. He is an amazing guy and could have made Dracut a much better place. He was never involved with drugs. Not even one article proves it.
