Doesn't this story scream "medical situation". Clearly Bruce and his brother are/were predisposed to some sort of inability to handle stress, likely a chemically caused condition related to the brain. The answer to this problem is not charges and jail, but medical intervention, court ordered if necessary.
...great theory and solution; think this would be applicable to the "troubled" men and women of Hartford as well?

There are many cruel and nasty sociopaths in the world, like evil...There are whole families of them and many in the families become involved in & gravitate to law enforcement as it condones this behavior, like spoiled, anal 12 & 13 year old. Amazing the educated and nice girls who marry these sickos..Low self-esteem???

There are a total of 6 children living in that house. They have all been mistreated for years. I am not surprised with Bruces actions. It is unfortunate that the mother did not run with those children long ago. I guess he needed to abuse her before she would do something. HUH!! Still not surprised
The answer to possessing fully automatic machine guns in violation of federal law is jail time. A lot of it!

Why didn't Courant reporter include info that Bruce was a retired Waterbury cop? I heard it on Radio 1080.

Her family (Seitz) has the means to take care of their niece/nephew, grandchildren (whatever the case may be). One relative on her side - same last name, same hometown, same family company - won $5 million in the lottery a year or so ago. They should be taking both children out of the home TODAY!

When I said her family, I meant Donna B.(maiden name - Seitz), the one already murdered by the brother, who is also dead. Get these kids out quickly - ages about 15 and 17 or 18.

Talk about genetic predisposition. I heard Bruce Bochicchio testify for his brother Michael at his divorce. Same slimy, sociopathic, scary personality. This is no surprise. How he got custody of those children is beyond comprehension.
I've noticed theres a lot of cops out there like him. Like the morelli brothers, one of whom was the POS who committed suicide in Norwalk a few months back. I went to high school with the older brother- a really f'd up, angry guy.

I am amazed how Mr. Bochicchio is already convicted of these crimes in the media and public opinion before his day in court. What happened to due process of law where a person is presumed innocent until proven guilty? The mere fact of being the brother of Michael Bochicchio appears to be enough evidence alone to convict. The news media reports stories more fictional than non fictional that is why newspaper article are not admissible in court. I would like to hear the facts to determine guilt or innocence. It seems so easy to judge from the outside looking in and using the new media as the source of evidence. Give the guy his due in court and let the facts come out. I would agree sadly these kids are exposed to yet another horrific situation. I am sure the ignorance of some people will be compelled respond to my comment.

Medical condition? Are you kidding me? They were brought up to believe that violence was an acceptable alternative. Period. Take a good look around to any woman who thinks that being berated or slapped has no effect on the children. I have said it to women.....your an adult-you choose to be in that situation-children have no choice. Bravo that this woman made the proper choice.

How the heck is he "retired" from the Waterbury Police Department and the State Marshalls Program at age 43?

Why is his wife placing the blame on the children of his brother and sister-in-law - who was so brutally murdered?

What is going to happen when this nut case is released?

Just have to share this one... Back in 1993 I received a notice that my CT permit was revoked following the first and only domestic/marital/non-violent issue we had pre divorcing. I sat at the Review board appealing the decision across from an arrogant officer named Michael Bochicchio. He stressed how I was now not "suitable" to have a permit because of the domestic issue. I reapplied 6 mos later and was given the permit, only to get another letter from Officer Bochicchio pulling the permit again. Back to the board; this time with an attorney and won. You can only imagine my shock when just last year I learned of him killing his wife and the circumstances. I could name this "Oh the irony" or "The hippocrates run the institution"

Considering his post name is Waterbury and Bruce B. in the article was a cop in Waterbury maybe he knows him (another retired cop) and feels the need to defend him - Of course, he must know more than we do. The know-it-alls always do.

The courant reporter wasn't even in court so I don't know how people could rely on their information. All they do is copy other reporters' stuff. Some of it is inaccurate too. Bruce B. was ordered to turn in his permit, but claimed he couldn't find it. I warn, don't judge this guy yet. It may look and walk like a duck, but after everything this family has been through it's obvious they still have a lot of healing. How someone could miss submachine guns in his closet is a lil fishy though. The state should have embedded itself in this 11-member household to make sure everything was going okay for the kids' sake. Best of luck to them.
