I think that saying "nice job to the MSP and the local police" may be laying it on too heavy.

After all, this capture involved the Mass State Police Violent Fugitive Section along with the Littleton, the Westford and the Groton Police. Sure, they did get the guy after 4 hours actual time and untold Police hours, but saying nice job is, in my opinion, too much flattery. And, this guy was not some big time criminal. The whole mess began over a guy driving on a revoked license. This guy is not a member of the mob, or a known assassin.

If this was a one on one capture I would say nice job. But, since it involved a highly trained division of the Mass State Police, as well as cops from three different towns, and the search dragged out for 4 hours, I think a more accurate comment would be "countless cops, including highly trained Mass State Police, were able to finally apprehend their man after a 4 hour search".

Sure, they did prevail, but the odds were heavily stacked against one single man. Nice job? No way. Job ultimately completed, after untold total Police hours? Yes

Let's keep things in the proper prospective!
