Yeah, it was Billy's kids and it was outside of the Galic Club on Chelmsford St. on New Years Eve, Davey nad I had just left, it was one of Billy's little tricks he actually taught me and Dave one time how you get a tube of crazy glue and you glue the door locks on someones car and when they are out there trying to get in is when you get them, Man, the shit I'm remembering isn't cool at all, as far as the third guy I really don't rememeber who it was, just another thug I'm sure.

Hi Cookie, the tapes are from whenthe cops wiretapped a buch of us from what was known as Operation Triple Play, back in the 80's, thats what got the ball rolling for my father's murder essentially. Yeah it was a tough time but then again we got alot of laughs on the cops because we found out about the wiretappings about halph way if not sooner into it, we meaning my Father, me and Peter and whoever else we chose to confide in which really wasn't many, so the tapes are very interesting, and sometimes just a joke.

Thank-You for all kind words, thouhgts,and prayers that so many of my Father's friends have had for my family over the pasr 20 years. Anyone who actually knew my Dad,brother,Mother or myself knows that the Lowell Scum has had it out for my family for more years than I wish to remember. It took 1 dirty cop, 1 idiot brother, and one very dangerous man [Barnowski], to ruin a family for life. Mr. Barnowski is at Cedar Junction Walpole if anyone really cares. Thank You again for your postings, my children and I appreciate all positive feedback. Just one more thing, if Peter and Mr. Long are thinking about making a movie it would have to under the title of fiction, because most of thier 'truths' are lies, I know I lived it too .
HI MARYLOU Sorry to hear about Dave,hope you and the rest of your family are doing fine. One of the best stories i heard you dad say was [that champ wouldnt eat his food,and he told champ if you dont eat your food youll have to go for a ride with Peter, he said he ate the whole bowl.]HAHA May Jack rest in peace.

I'm sorry tohear that Chucky has passed away, I've heard horriable stories about Chucky too, but I;ve gotta tell youhe was always more than nice to me and Dave andd our kids, and up until the day my father was murdered, my father still had alot of respect and more importantly trust for him, so say what you will about the man, but I'll always remember a very sweet, loving, caring good man. I hope he's in heaven selling Christmas trees like he did up in Rochester, N.H.. God Bless him and his family. Mary Lou

His is actually Mary Lou. Jacks daughter and like how could any of us forget Indian Joe that's like me forgetting the Pewter Pot, if you know what I mean. Joe didn't deserve what happened, not a bad guy really.

Mary Lou, how serious are you about a potential book? I'm a published author and I have to say the story of your father's life has always intrigued me. I've been a journalist for 20 years and am familiar only with what I've read in the papers, though I do have a relative that was a longtime Lowell cop who had dealt with your dad on many occasions. He was clean, straight-forward cop, though.

Howie Carr?!? You're kidding me, right? If you've read anything by Howie Carr you should know that it would come nowhere close to the type of project I think Jackie's family would want.
