Hey Fool! I mean Bootman
Sounds like you where right there that night. Right in the thick of it. You looser.
If you had just stepped forward with all this infinite knowledge about the case then there would not hve been a settlement cause it would have been such a clear cut case for the cop. The families accepted the settlement that was offered to them showing the cop was not totally innocent.
Leave the Perry Mason to The lawyers you putz.
Hey Rick,

It's called reading, you know the thing you can't do. Read all the published articles, the public inquest document and other information.

Oh my gosh Rick I’m so sorry I just realized your free public teacher’s aide is not with you this summer. Oh well, just keep the articles for the school year and they can read them to you, maybe if you learn how to act like a human they’ll even help interpret the data for you.

To the uniformed man and women in law enforcement may St. Michael protect YOU!

you dont know squat about me so shut your mouth, i have NO record and was an innocent victim in my situation and so was my son, ever hear of liars, cheaters, people living double lives?? ya, i knew nothing, i was stupid and nieve, and to tell ya the truth my husband did just come home from work and he owned his own business at that, and was a "TAXPAYER", we worked our as2 off to get what we wanted in life, just because you dont know who your friends REALLY ARE, doesnt mean your a scumbag just like them, Im sure some of your family sells drugs or is a drug addict, or has criminal records, so that makes "YOU" a scumbag too? Come on,, this is life people, reality will strike you someday, you live in a fantasy world, "IT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU TOO" and nobody, state, town, welfare, paid for my sh1t, i worked 60hrs a week to provide for mine, that makes me a scumbag huh? and i deserve a bullet in the head too? thanks , wait til god judges you, i think your the one who needs jerry!!!! sounds like you have a lot to say about people you dont even know, go comment elsewhere, your a waste of words here!!
Oh please tell the truth. I know you and your husband, who was a bookie turned drug dealer.

Your husband caused his own problems not the cops.

You knew where the money was coming from. Go look in the mirror and you'll see half the problem, the other half is in the final rest position where he belongs. Why not ask all the families he caused pain if they care, your husband was the biggest crook in Leominster.

Thank you,,, good law abiding citizens also have friends who are druggies or drug dealers and a lot of people dont even know, they live totally separate lives, how do you know what someone is doing when they are not in front of your face 24/7? I smell the coffe daily,, just look at the news on TV,, does everyone deserve what they get? Especially, NO ONE DESERVES TO DIE!!!
Yes, Hope he did deserve to die, he was rotten to the bone there was no fixing his broken mind.

If you really truely know him then you know how many crimes he commited that caused pain and suffering to other people, the young, the elderly.

He was human waste and deserved to die, I say thank you to the State Police Officer who killed him justice was served.

Since you know him so well maybe you think that the DNA he forcefully and violently left insdie my daughter was okay because the defense attorney confused her on the stand and maybe it was okay for the defense attorney to cause her so much pain that she was committed for her own protection, we were afraid that because her pain was so deep she might end her life and yeas eight years later she is still in treatment, something that she will carry for the rest of her life because you dirt bag pice of garbarge low life toliet nester of a waste of flesh friend was such a good man.

I say JUSTICE was served no triks by a defense attorney, jury who is tricked or minor legal mistake get me out of jail card.

THANK YOU fromt he bottom of my heart you killed a man who needed to be killed!

F.Y.I., if you knew my husband, which obviously you didnt, you would know that he was not a bookie, he didnt even know shit about gambling on games, horses or what have you, he would give a homeless person the shirt off his back!!! His scumbag aquaintences USED him for a place to meet. Ya, and here it is 11 yrs later and my son and myself are still in COUNSELING ALSO!!! He has been suicidal ever since then, so what r u saying, that Preston raped your daughter??? I never heard of that, how do you know she's not a liar or a whore who liked it and gave him permission to do what "THEY" did???? Maybe your little girl is too afraid to confide in her dad or mom, maybe cuz they're racist or she would be in alot of trouble from you so the only thing left to do is to lie about it!!!! So if that was my daughter and she really got raped, I wouldve put a bullet in his head myself, never mind waiting for the police to take action!!! You must not care too much then. And I do look in the mirror everyday and think," wow, we survived so much, and still my son has been in no trouble, no addiction to drugs, a great student with great attendance, and I thank God that he gave me the strength and ability to raise my child the right way" If you did know my husband, you would know that he was no wanted by leominster police or any at that matter, nor did he ever have a warrant for his arrest or spend time in jail. So , again, get your facts straight, just because a friend of yours is a looser and you try to stand by them and help them,, you dont deserve to die for them. And it wasnt a cop that shot him!!! Why dont you post your real name? SCARED????? Yup, I think so!!!!

If the jerkkoff was in jail it was because he was a BAD GUY, A-HOLE!! Good guys don't go to jail for robbing and stealing and selling dope. Of course he seemed happy, he always had a pocket full of stolen money, never worked a freaking day in his life, what a piece of excrement!!! Try staying in school beyond the third grade so you might learn how to use the english language. Maybe you could get a job and become a productive member of society, or will you emulate your toilet buddy preston and become a punk dirtbag too?

"This man have a family"..sheesh, what grade did you drop out of? At any rate, If this was a normal family, this event wouldn't have taken place, secondly, if it had, I know most folks would disown the toilet anyway. Would you be proud to tell people your career criminal daddy was blown away by a statie after trying to run over another police officer, after refusing to stop for another because he was driving without a license and was in violation of his parole? Real stand up community freaking hero here.

Remember, pal, respect is something that is earned, that piece of doggy-doo only earned disgust. There will be NO respect shown from this old poster for anyone who thumbs his nose at the rules of society and then whines because society doesn't like him.

you all should be ashamed of yourselves!!!! Does even 1 person who left a comment here even know Preston??? Well I did, and for over 15 yrs. He was not a piece of s@#t parent, or boyfriend, brother , or son. He did whatever he could for his family, he was trying to get away from the juvinille life of crime that just followed him in the worst city of massachusetts!! Fitchburg,, u suck,, in every way,, if he could've just got away from the fitch police then he would have made a good life for his kids. He had opened a business cutting hair and the cops would just never leave him alone. That's damn rite he ran,, cuz if he didnt they wouldve put him in jail for life, they always lie to get what they want for that city. Everyone there is snitches and scumbags, even all of you who leave comments,, WHO R U 2 JUDGE ANYBODY??? There's only 1 true judge and that's GOD himself. His family deserves way more than what they got or will ever get. A father is more important than a million dollars,, how the he11 can anyone put a price on a life???? I love you Preston, and I miss you, we all think of you and your family often. We r all targets to police, watch out society,,, YOU COULD BE NEXT!!!! Maybe you're family will be ok if we give them $100,000, that should take care of your family for the rest of their lives......
I'm going to judge you based on what you wrote and how you said it.

1) You have been arrested, more than once.
2) You blamed someone else, possibly even the police because you were arrested.
3) You did not attend college.
4) If you have a job, its a very low paying one likely in a service industry.
5) You recieve some type of government support.

I would bet my next paycheck most if not all of those judgements are correct.

You have atleast 3 children and there are 2 different fathers. And you're not sure of who the father is for one of your children.

I'm glad you think you know me,, I've never been arrested, I put no blame on anyone that doesn't deserve it and do their jobs correctly, my husband would've still been alive if the police arrested the scumbag who showed him a gun and said he was going to kill somebody, and for your information, I did graduated from high school, and I did attend college courses, I dont work some sh1t as@ job, as a matter of fact I am a manager of a very big company getting salary, and to the next comment,,, I have 2 children and I DO KNOW WHO THE FATHER OF MY CHILDREN ARE!!!! IM NOT A WHORE, SO STOP HATING!!!

Mr. observer,,, you're cute!!! If you live in Gardner , you probably do know me, but you got your information wrong and you better watch your lip, ask anyone who knows me there, maybe you'll get the correct info. Besides, we are not conversating about my life, which seems like everyone wants to do here, we are talking about a life that was taken from a police officer and children that have to suffer because of it, your not hurting my feelings any, you're just proving how stupid you are!!! God, I hope you bless Preston's children and save them from mean, evil, judgemental people who don't even know them, please let him rest in piece!!!

You can't be serious? Why would I not post my real name on a public forum discussing a known criminal drug dealer? Gee, that's a hard on to figure out...

That "man" was a disgusting human being, and a drunk to boot. The family should be entitled to nothing. Perhaps they should deduct the settlement amount from the large sum that family has already acquired from us taxpayers in welfare and food stamps. Given he walked around with a dealer's roll in his pocket and flashed it in our business on more than on occasion (until he was told not to enter the property anymore as we had him on camera "dealing" in our parking lot), then they should have never been entitled to that welfare money to begin with.
