Maybe Chief Dolan could have helped his brother get his life turned around, if they had stayed close.

I'm sure he got a case of the munchies and stopped off for a burger on the way to court. He will show up eventually...

You can't help anyone that doesn't want help.

Do any of you know either one of them? A couple of yrs ago, Paul told me, "if I had a nickle for everytime my brother said "Paul who?"!
People should talk about how perfect they are, instead of talking down someone they don't even know!

Perhaps Paul didn't want to remain close because of Tim's "lifestyle decisions". It works both ways.

Wow,

Selling pot out of his mail truck! I wish I was on his route. I wonder how long he had his operation going for? What mistakes did he maketo get caught? Doesn't the post office do drug tests? How did he get away with it for so long?

I am wondering if he is rehearsing the old Steve Martin routine, "I forgot..." or "Excuuuuuussseee Me!"

Is Tim his brother's keeper? Until Paul comes up bail, yes.

Why does the paper seem to think it's important to metion Chief Dolan. So what if they are brothers each s respsonsible for thier own life. If he wasn't Tim's brother would we ever of heard about this crime I think not.

I have said this before on this site and I will say
it again: am I the only one who thinks this way?
I see a guy charged with a felony drug charge get
told to show up in court to answer the charge. He
doesn't show up! So they go arrest him and drag him
into court and the court lets him get by with a
1000 dollar bail. HE HAS ALREADY PROVEN HE WON'T
SHOW UP!! And you only give him a 1000 dollar bail??? FOR A FELONY???

Please, someone, ANYONE: tell me why this keeps
happening. I don't care what the charge is, why
do we let them out???

HELP!!!

It certain doesn't seem to matter to this 'newspaper' when St Paul's former police chief Finney's kid was busted numerous times throughout his misspent youth and beyond.
