Luis, I don't know why the Sentinel felt it necessary to refer to you as a "teen."

Great job. Merry Christmas!

If only more of your generation acted like you did then maybe we would not have as much trouble as we do.
Great job!
Mery Christmas and God Bless.

I think that the word teen is absolutely an understatement. Chasing a robbery suspect down the middle of a busy street (especially in Fitchburg..with all the traffic), the guy went beyond his teenage years.

As a former professional wrestler titled his book, so would the same be of Mr. Colon. "To be the man, you have to beat the man." It looks like he did just that!

That Fitchburg scumbag bit off a little more than he could chew.. LOL, you lowlife. Hope you enjoyed that night in the slammer. Maybe the judge will step up to the plate and send the greaseball to jail for a few years..
