nobody deserves to die this way. With an attempt on his exwife last month, and three already in custody, there has to be plenty of evidence. get these scum bags off our streets! Otherwise, they just keep breeding and raise more little scum bags that think it's ok to shoot people or attack innocent women and children!
what a joke

Actualy some people do deserve to die this way. I know nothing of this person but it seems he did something wrong if people are fire bombing his house during the week and he got shot on the streets at 4 a.m.? It doesn't sound like he was a model citizen.

It's kinda like this. You can take a poll of 100 people in jail and 100% will say they are innocent.

I thought it was a pretty good meeting and a good start. These need to happen quarterly.

The information and questions about landlord and tenant data bases is new and grantworthy. No one should have to pay for this kind of information and is the basis to cleaning up neighborhoods.

The fear of residents wanting to report, but not wanting to snitch is real and was heard.

The interest informing neighborhood watch was there.

The Mayor seemed interested in following up on negative police interactions (and no rapid blinking involved.)

Everyone except Robert Walsh had relevant input and stories that added to the texture of the enhanced effort. The followup will be the key. It will be interesting to see the article in the morning paper.

What we didn't see, because it was an information gathering meeting, is a plan to move forward. We need to figure out a way to stay on top of this to get periodic updates on the efforts moving forward.

Any suggestions?

It was an informative meeting. I decided to be a listener and the experience was good all around. I disagreed with a couple things but it wasn't the forum for politics. The people spoke and they spoke from their hearts. Robert Walsh spoke and made his points as he has a right to make these points.

Victim friends, family and neighbors spoke and it was heartening. The people of Fitchburg are very good people.

I learned a few other things tonight as well. It was good to see so many citizens and a good showing of off duty police. A conversation took place and I think progress has begun.

NO, and this is why we have a justice system.

And this is the issue that caused the meeting.

Regardless of how the man lived his life, death-by-drug-dealer is not an approved or welcomed sentence in our neighborhoods.

I hope you are never on jury duty. You had no facts in this case.

You may be brave on this forum, but generalizing the fate of an unknown decedent is distasteful and immature.

Hey, I hope I'm not on jury duty too. It seems like every 4 or 5 years I get jury duty. I know some people who have never had jury duty. It stinks. You sit in a room with other potential jurors all morning and you are not allowed to talk to the criminals in the hallway.

It may be my sparkling personality and good looks (not to mention I'm humble) but yeah I'm a jury duty magnet.

Jury duty is interesting to say the least. You could hear an intersting story. Here's a hypothetical...'So your honor me and him were chillin at my moms apartment when I decided to go out and buy some crack. I get back and he had found my stash and smoked it all. So I accidently hit him with a broom handle while sweeping. He's the criminal your honor not me!'.

And Chickensh*tpig ALWAYS has a hypothetical for you, regardless of the fact that he makes them up!

OK, kids. Someone died and a neighborhood is in crisis. Time for a little respect and composure. Take your attempts at humor and insult to another thread.

Please stop trying to insult people. I could tell you the story about the three little pigs and at the end you would probably ask me if they had insurance. Just give it up already. All I have stated is that peoples houses don't get fire bombed during the week and then they get shot on the weekend. There is more to this story.

Then again I once put a bunch of hot sauce on a burger and five minutes later I was convinced I had tongue cancer. So take what I say with a grain of salt. Is it sad and tragic that a person died? YES! Can I do anything about it? NO! So pick up your tissues, dry your eyes and move on.

Oh I know you're really insulted etc., except, you have not "just" stated one thing, you've also added your hypothetical story telling as if it has any relevance to these people's REAL problems!

So no, I don't care if you don't like me pointing that out, too bad, tough cookies, you post so much garbage here that I don't care for either, you don't get to play a victim here, that's for the actual real people affected by an actual real tragedy!

So let me get this straight. It's ok for you to make up all of these fictional stories and say they are true but I admit my story is hypothetical and that's bad?????

I did know him and yes, he made some bad choices for whatever reasons, but he did have a good side too. I saw it. I still believe that nobody deserves to die this way. The circumstances are not black and white... life and death is. it's not ok to kill someone else ...period. And i'm not just talking about Shaun.. i'm talking about all the bs and crap going on. People need to start raising their children and teaching them right from wrong and good from bad... not just breeding them.

Shaun did not deserve to die...at all. I spent everyday with the man for the last few months and I can tell you that he did not deserve to go. But the violence needs to end and people need to put their heads on correctly. The way people are disgusts me around here. I'm disappointed to say I live in a location where my boyfriend got killed. No peace here but Shaun's in a peaceful place now and he's looking down on all of his loved ones, protecting us. These people will get what's headed to them.
