It sounds like all this ceremony really consisted of was ready a long list of names of officers who died; most all of of them simply through natural causes. To call this a ceremony of honoring fallen officers is a REAL STRETCH...the title of this story makes it sound like they all died in the line of duty...

Just how many of the 158 names of these officers actually died while bravely performing their jobs? None? Lets not count the ones who deied simply because they were fat and out of shape and had a heart attack while watching TV. The cops typically lump those deaths in as "line of duty deaths".....

Again, this ceremony sounds more like a typical stunt by the police to put on a show for the Taxpaying Public. I get the sense that not much happened besides screwing up traffic while reading a long list of names of men who simply died of natural causes. Obviously, the title makes it sound like they all lost their lives while barvely performing their duties.....again, a typical police stunt in hopes of brainwashing the Taxpaying Public.....

Living in a cave? Where have you been? It’s called the annual Police Memorial Service for ALL deceased members. It is not a fallen officer memorial.

This takes place every year for the past several decades. All departments, police and fire throughout the country hold a memorial. All of them are usually on the same date.

It is for the families of the members who are deceased. It IS NOT for the taxpayers.

The name is deliberately misleading "Fallen Officers"...a more accurate name for this event would clearly be "Expired Officers"...they did not fall, they simply died of natural causes.

Its a stunt by the police to bamboozle the Taxpaying Public. That's all.

Sounds like you read the Sentinel too much. The newspaper doesn’t even have full-time reporters anymore. Actually they obtain and use information that is submitted to them from the public.

Sorry, not a stunt. It is for the families not the public. All names are read every year. Where does it say in the article that a member stated it was for Fallen officers?

The memorial is not named a Fallen Officer Memorial.

Obviously the Sentinel will sell more papers by using the term “Fallen”.

Complain to the newspaper not here.

You just keep reading that Sentinel instead of actually talking to a member of public safety.

OK, ok...I am following you....so, can we start to do this very thing for all of Fitchburg's working class, after they pass on?....

Let's see, can we honor all of the Supermarket Bagboys and Baggirls who slowly aged and then passed away? Gee wizz, there must be 1000's of them from Fitchburg covering the past 100 years or so. And, how about clogging up the downtown area as the families of our fast food workers who simply passed away, shed their tears in a public spectical?....And, we have our Taxi Drivers who simply died off while doing nothing heroic as well....again, all of our proud city's families deserve to pay their respects for their family members who simply held down a job and then died of old age...

Let's face it, It was a typical Public Relations BS session... the police never miss an opportunity to stage a performance for the public....

Everyone dies sooner or later....just because you happened to be wearing a badge and a uniform doesn't make your passing anything special....so, can you guys just do this out in a isolated field somewhere next year and not inconvenience the city's motorist over it? You can hold your fairy tale event....just don't bog down the city with your nonsense.....

Sure, meet with those companies, come up with a date and a list of names. Build a memorial. Lots of private companies do have it.

Maybe they should have a day to honor all the welfare people also. They have done just as much for the city as those cops did.

OH Ya don't forget that WANT-A-BE HERO Firefighter who knows everything about everything that goes on in Fitchburg. We need to make a Holiday just for him.

You can hold a memorial for all the bag boys if you'd like this is America. Have the bag boys association get together once a year and read all the names I'm cool with that. I don't see the bug deal if the Leominster plastic workers union wanted to do the same thing would it be an issue with you? I bet not. I know i get it your just made you can't attend the reading of the fallen skinners like you used to when you were up state

Hey, it is Teflon Teddy the tough guy hiding like a scared kitty. I am going to call you scared kitty from now on, ok ?

And what does "cogent" mean ? Is it even a word ?

And what "cogent" point did the town idiot make exactly anyways ? Next year the police union will want it to be made into their 30th holiday pay day.

And here is one for you. When are our political leaders going to grow some and begin to bar state funerals for police and fire ? That circus is beginning to get to be a bit much!

In todays day, you could be an officer charged with raping a 4 yr. That officer could shoot himself with his state issued pistol and the Mayor will send her condolences by sending a few workers on city payroll to that person's wake and/or funeral. Then there will be a fucking parade for such a criminal cop.

Since 911 police and fire have been put on a pedestal by Mayors. And it is all about the vote. Now they stop the government, block the roads for the parade of uniformed officers. The general public never joins in these parades.

Typical Lynch to go after public safety employees who have such a bond that they choose to honor those that have gone before them each year. You have a long history of being an angry, bitter malcontent. You are a classic nutcase. A serial loser who hates cops and firemen because (A) You could never be one of them, because (B) You have a long history of violent interactions with the police and (In Fitchburg's case) firefighters and (C) you couldn't pass the written or physical tests because you are a fat slob and an idiot. Spare us the protestations that your relatives were firefighters, cops, veterans, et cetera. Because YOU were none of those things. You have lived a life of crime, drunkenness and violence as well as sloth. So some public employees, in the spirit of fraternity, want to remember the people who went before them each year. So what? Only a lunatic convicted criminal like yourself would bother to object. And, Oh, as for blocking the roads...What do you care? You had your drivers' license revoked years ago after you staged a road rage incident. Do any these ceremonies really interfere with your ability to use your bicycle to go out and get a Yoo Hoo and some Twinkies?

The only reason he hates cops is because he got CAUGHT !

If he was able to get away with his crimes then he would not hate cops.

This is the mentality for all criminals.

A couple of years back in NY, a female State Trooper was speeding and texting at the same time after attending some sort of training session. The female NY State Trooper lost control of her state issued cruiser, crashing to her death in a single vehicle car accident...roughly 700 cops showed up to put on a big show for the Taxpayers...many from out of state. Us Taxpayers foot the bill for this nonsense as our crusiers gain additioanl milage on them and we pay for the fuel. Many of the cops who show up to put on the useless parade are on duty.

In the case of the episode above, cops paid their respects on chat lines, preaching the usual nonsense and rhetoric with comments such as "she paid the ultimate sacrifice for serving the public" and "she died while serving the public"....

The same thing happened here in Mass a few years back when a Mass State Trooper was speeding for no good reason, losing control of his cruiser and slamming into pole. The Taxpaying Public had to put up with 3 solid days of nonsense news coverage over THAT death...

This horsesh#t with the cops getting ANOTHER DAY OFF to "pay their respects" for any and all cops deaths, even when simple negligence by the boob cop at the wheel caused his/her own death, is completely out of control.

As I always say, the cops NEVER MISS a chance to fully exploit these deaths in the never ending quest to brainwash the Taxpaying Public about the perils of the job; as they clamor for more and more money and more redicules benefits.
