Sounds like Lynch found one of his cross-dressing butt buddies to support his agenda. Or "Marie121" could be his alter ego!

ya same thing with me. I signed up like a month ago because of the couch burning at the college and the next thing I knew lynch mob is bullying me that I knew lynch. I'll get u up to speed lynch wanted to run for mayor however it seems as though he's a convicted murderer of a kid ( so he doesn't do good) but I do like what he has to say about fitchburg. He seems to tell the truth about the corruption. And lynch mob doesn't like him and he thinks everyone knows lynch. Lol. God forbid if others have an opinion. I'm new to the forum as well

Hahahahahhahahahahahahahahahah ah, part of the corruption? Since we have 3 people that claim corruption, lets hear the truth. You want to make your opinion, thats your right. But if your going to make accusations without facts then be prepared for the critics. I've lived Fitchburg for 40 years, moved away 10 years ago, still have property and family there. First off, Lynch is a guy who ran for mayor, he lives in his mothers basement, collects SSI. He has long police record that include assults and manslaughter. He's made all kind accusations against, cops, city officals, court personel, the list is endless. He has threatned everyone with lawsuits. He has serious mental issues and is on several medications. He floods the mayors office, the police and fire departments with endless rants. What you should do is go back and read topix. Lynch has one fan, and that is himself.

OK Marie121,

Certainly not to contradict your opinion, but why do you say you never heard of so many corrupt people in a city? Have you ever heard of Washington D.C> ? How about Chicago? New York City? Los Angeles? Boston?

CMON...cities have corruption and crime and all kinds of things.

Are you from somewhere out West and never been in a city?

Just wonderin...

As far as corruption, Fitchburg has its polotics just like every other city and town in the country. The current Mayor inherited a city that was on the brink of bankrupcy. As far as crime, yes Fitchburg has a crime rate that is higher than some areas and lower than others. Fitchburgs problems have been years in the making. Fitchburg was a very active mill town at one time. Paper factories everywhere, slowly the industry changed direction and operations moved over seas, paper from China became cheaper just like shoe factories here in Maine and the furniture factories in Gardner. Once the factories closed many of the working people moved to find work elsewhere. Fitchburg became a bedroom community. Slumlords started buying up the multi-families around town and several social service agencies started moving into town. The city made it easier for these agencies to come here ,slowly the wrong element started moving here, this all started in the 70's and it got worse and worse, theres probably more section 8 property in Fitchburg next to Worcester. Fitchburg has its issues just like Lawrence, Lowell, Worcester, Springfield. The college is Fitchburgs biggest marketing asset along with the airport. Fitchburg is also a victim of its own location. One time rail service was a major form of transportation but that all but ended when the paper factories closed. Big business wants to located closer to major highways and Fitchburg does not have the land available near the highways, its all about costs. Devens is more appealing because it proxcimity to Rt.s 2, 190, 290, 495,95 and the pike. As far as the college, burning a couch was a stupid thing to do but in my time there I've seen much worse. I've been at college bonn fires were alot more than couches were thrown in the fire, it just never got reported. Be thankful that a riot doesn't break out or the students set cars on fire because they lost a big game or worce won a big game. The school system, although not perfect is not as bad as some people make it out to be. I know many teachers who are still in the system. The problem with some people they like to blame the cops for everything, they can't be everywhere. Forums like this are full of monday morning quarterbacks.

all I'm saying is that anytime some one writes on a thread you seem to think we are connected to him. Sounds a little paranoid to me.
Because nobody agrees with him, your the first one who's come along to agree with him. He also has a habit of using many handles by talking in the 3rd person ( Ever see the "Jimmy" episode of Seinfeld?) he thinks he is giving us all the impression that he has all these supporters. He's quite amusing. His whole mayoral campaign was done on this forum. He wants to fire the entire police department, MOVE the airport, build a connector from Rt.2 directly to Main St, and now he has this vendetta against the college because his brother got laid-off from his job there.

well I'm glad you finally wrote something of fact. That has been my issue with you. You seem to post mostly stuff that says you don't like lynch. He seems to post facts/myths of fitchburg but at least he is speaking his side of what he thinks is the problem. You seem to always make fun/bully him or think WE are part of his "crew". Maybe some people in this small forum also has an insight of what Fitchburg is like. I will agree that the double deckers were taken over by slum lords but the college area , that you say is a big revenue, also allowed slum lords to rent to a big piece of rentals. So Fitchburg state is part to blame as well. And why we're on this topic yes it was a big mill town / paper town before we knew that colored water in the river was going to later cause a catastrophic result. As a nurse ( and no I'm not a burn/ trauma nurse anymore) but rather a maternity nurse ,if all the cancer victims that I personally know ( as friends or family) are from that area. I'm glad to see people posting to make a place better. Lynch just informs me more than you have. So instead of having this vandeta against him make a small change in Fitchburg. Help create a fall clean up and I will join you. I would also like to add that my husband and I owned 3 rental properties in that city. We were great landlords and quite handy including myself. When we sold we sold the properties to our tendents. No realtor. We gave fair prices , took into account no realtor and we prospered and so didn't the nice new owner. Why did the the city allow this slumlord issue get into their community?

This Lynch guy comes off like a complete a-hole. Not wound to tight and borderline mentally retarded. Wouldn't be shocked if thre some undiagnosed mental issues on top of the ones that are evident.

He served time for murder, real dangerous.

Before you make judgment about my distane for Lynch and my lack of information about Fitchburg you should go back an read posts regarding Fitchburgs former mayor candidate. Lynch knows absolutly nothing about Fitchburg. He's made many accusations against quite a few city offical and employees on this forum. Nothing but conspiracy theories, lies, He gets all his information from the newspaper. No one is saying Fitchburg doesn't have issues, as Isaid Fitchburgs problems started 40 years ago. With a mixture of economic trends, mostly bad, politics, ect Fitchburg is where it is today. However, Fitchburg has a current mayor who has made some tough, unpopular decsions, but she kept Fitchburg from going bankrupt. She runs Fitchburg like a business,the way it needed to be. You have only been on here a very short time, I can assure you I am only 1 of a very large population on this forum that speak very negativly about Lynch, not Fitchburg, but Lynch.

Trippy and Marie,

The people who are quick to toss out the insults to Mr Lynch clearly have direct ties to the Fitchburg PD.

I have been watching this thread for nearly 4 years now. When I first started reading the posts that were left by the most frequent Posters, i quickly realized that the police and their pals were using this site to endlessly insult a woman who had filed a rape charge against a cop. I did not post anything right away; but it was clear to me that the cops and their faithful supporters were watching this site like hawks, putting a positive spin towards the police on any and all stories involving either crime or the police themselves.

I have nothing against the police, but I figured that someone needed to inform the Readers of how the police operate (and, don't operate). Many people are not aware of the fact that each and every cop on the Fiotchburg PD averages 56 paid days off per year, not counting paid holidays and not counting days off for injury on the job. The Taxpayers of Fitchburg actually receive very little from the police department. Anyone who has their eyes open is aware of drug dealing going on in public that historically gets ignored by the FPD.

The people who were the quickest to attack both of you on this particular link are the very people who I am referring to. They think that anyone who agrees with Mr Lynch about ANYTHING, or anyone who criticizes the FPD is either a criminal or is insane. They told me years ago that I was about to be sued and that I was about to be banned from Topix Forum. Of course, none of that ever happened. Be prepared to be insulted and to have your family members insulted as well, by this crowd. That is how they play the game.

So it's not actually the drug dealers that are corrupt it's the cops?

Why would all these Puerto Ricans and Dominicans leave their tropical paradise and move to the cold Northeast city of Fitchburg and many other cities like Fitchburg?

If you feel that the city police department has gone bad maybe you need to take your blinders off and start looking at the other variables involved such as the criminals who reside here.

You need to focus on the origin of the problem such as the illegal immigrants, social services and slumlords which obviously outnumber the police in all cities.

That would mean we would need at least 1,000 cops to babysit a city with a population of 40,000. I will look forward to you requesting the hiring of another 900+ cops at the next council meeting because 5 patrol cruisers or even 20 patrol cruisers will never be able to manage any city our size but they are doing the best they can with what they have.

Trippy and Marie121,

You may find rather quickly that two individuals; Kevin Lynch and another person that commonly posts under the moniker "You Know Who" have issues with anyone involved in law enforcement or anyone that will not subscribe to their disdain and constant bashing of law enforcement people.

Kevin Lynch was a person convicted of murder back when he was younger, attempted to run for mayor of Fitchburg, even though he cannot legally hold the position, and periodically continues to get himself in trouble with the law. He used to live on the forum but doesn't post nearly as often as in the past because he is under court orders not to post disparaging statements on The Internet about police officers and their families. This was an agreement reached between him and the courts because he was stalking and threatened a police officer. He more recently stated posting junk about Fitchburg University and was handed an order to stay away from the university because he has major issues.

You Know Who has a vendetta against police officers that will become quite easy to spot if you read for awhile. Don't believe for one second that this individual has nothing against police officers or other law enforcement individuals. he/she rarely comments on anything other than to rag on police officers and has even named themselves the "policeman's policeman".

Just the fact that "You Know Who" stated that everyone that posts anything positive regarding the police are obviously police officers or somehow related to police officers should be a clue, but this person isn't playing with a full deck. To think that the Fitchburg Police have resources to setup someone to monitor this stupid little forum is pretty lame, but something that "You Know Who" has stated often.

So just a "heads up".
