How do you do it?? I mean you are totally blind to corruption! Do you honestly believe that an officer should be exempt? Do you think there should be any rules or restrictions?

You would be satisfied if you could operate like the gestapo huh? You could kill and get away with this killing of all the undersiables in your head, huh?

If you could elimate three groups off the planet who would they be? African Americans, Hispanics and poor people?????

You realy are stupid. Just because you got away with killing someone it doesn't mean the rest of us want to hurt anybody. Now go get your binoculars.

How come the police figured that they needed to shoot this young lass; but they DID NOT shoot at the Prison Guard who had some sort of mental breakdown recently and drove straight at the cops? And, they knew damn well that the Prison Guard was armed because they had been tipped off about it.

Let's see; two people refuse to stop for the cops.....one is a woman who just robbed a convenience store WITHOUT A GUN; and the other is a Prison Guard who is armed with a gun.,...both are in vehicles and both refuse to stop...the cops figure that they better shoot the woman, but there is no need to shoot the armed Prison Guard who is behaving the same exact way.....

What's wrong with THAT picture?

Well let's see one was a convicted drug addict with a criminal history and the other was a long time hard working law abiding citizen who may have snapped working in a prison and being surrounded by scum?

Yes, I understand that when you are a Prison Guard you are surrounded by people who may very well be considered scum (i.e. the other Prison Guards); but that does not excuse someone from driving a car while armed; refusing to stop for the Fuzz; and driving straight at the cops in a weapon (The Prison Guard owned vehicle)....again, how come the police DID NOT fire upon this armed madman?

I''m so sick of all these public servers thinking they can get away with everything! Just the other day I was grocery shopping when a fire truck pulled up, ON DUTY FIREFIGHTERS jumped out and proceeded to go grocery shopping. This is ridiculous! They should not be doing grocerys why my tax dollars are on the clock! It's bad enough they get paid to sleep! It's in their contract! This is out of controll my tax dollars should not be paying people to sleep! You'd think they were teachers the way they are raping the system

I agree and they shouldn't be unlocking cars as a courtesy because the owners locked their keys in the vehicle. Uh? how do you know they sleep? Are you a pervert peeking in their windows? You Are ! Shame on you looking at the fireman in the buff !

Hmmm? You are being sarcastic? I feel that the Fitchburg fire department is the best trained and most are very respectful. There are a couple "dingle berries" who need civility training and a course on honesty and integrity but for the most part Fitchburg is lucky to have such a professional department.

So, you were on that truck, huh! We see that you have been stalking! You answered the phone and then came here and then made a comment about my mother and doritos.

Your mother needs to smack you across your face and to tell you to get back in line and respect others!!!!!

There is another way to look at this. If your house catches on fire and you are trapped on the second floor. Would you feel more comfortable knowing firemen are ready or that they all have to wake up at home, get dressed, drive to the station, punch a timeclock, put on their gear get in the truck, wait for two guys that are running late and then drive to your house? You would be extra crispy by the time they arrived.

You truly are a total illiterate! The person who posted the comment about the fire truck parked at Market Basket is an FFD Firefighter and was on the truck!

He was baiting Lynch. The same firefighter post on here all the time! He has been starting trouble and stalking Lynch. He should know that as he stalks Lynch he is on video!

Civility courses are needed. And if it keeps up a serious articulate registered letter will be sent to examine whether or not the most serious and professional standards of conduct and standards of ethics is being adhered to as that particular job calls for 100% adhearance to the code of ethics!

There are very talented and well established attorneys following everything! People need to stop stalking Lynch and his family! Lynch has absolutely no problem with anyone. He has no ill will against anyone.

Lynch wants a better and safer Fitchburg. Lynch believes that corruption should not be involved in Government. Lynch does not hate any police officer no matter what you attempt to label him!

Yes, you and everyone and anyone has an absolute right to disagree with Lynch and the same goes for Lynch concerning everyone and anyone else!

You can disagree with Lynch and Lynch's proposals may not be feasible; it is called brainstorming and adding to the conversation!

Now if Lynch or anyone for that matter files a complaint on you then you have a right to dispute the complaint but you do not have a right to assault the complainaint; Comprende'????

It's called free speech, I can say whatever I want, to whomever I want, just like you can. Are you threating me in an attempt to take away my first amendment rights? It sure seems that way to me. Hmmmmmm

Here is an idea, if the topix or any open public forum that allows the posters to use any name bothers him, then just stay away from the forum ! Duh !

Judges are now taking a second look at bullying laws especially on facebook and other social sites. They are now going to amend the laws stating if the victim feels they are being stalked or bullied on a social site the victim also has the option to STAY OFF THE SITE! No one forces them to come onto a open public site.

Everyday comments are made out in the public at coffee shops, stores, malls and other places where many people can overhear or be included in the topic.

Also once a candidate runs for office he has opened up his life to public comment and scrutiny. All candidates expect that. If Lynch did not want to be in the public forums then he should not have been a candidate.

What did he expect to happen?

There is also another way to look at it. Next time they are out at 3 am they will drive to their incident passing your house with the sirens very loud.

Obviously everyone assumes they are sleeping because you are a sleeping too.

No, sorry the fireman are up all night attending to the drug overdoses, car accidents, shootings, stabbings, fires and so on.
Don't forget there are many residents whom are up all night too. The elderly whom sleep cycles change and now sleep during the day, the teenagers driving their friends around, the patrons leaving the bars.

I know it seems impossible but yes there are night people too and the cops and fireman are taking care of them as most residents have their heads nesteled in their pillows.

What's wrong with THAT picture?
Your extreme narcissism includes an ability to be omnipresent. Let's see, you were at the North Street establishment when the candidate for mayor was arrested. You know what happened, and you are sure he will be exonerated of all charges. Now, you were at both of these incidents and know what happened, what was going through the cops' heads, the perpetrators minds, everything about it. The prison guard was acting EXACTLY the same way. You're overplaying your hand again. Unless you're privy to information the regular citizen is not able to access, you're just fantasizing again.

"A young lass?" You are an absolute loon. Entertaining still. I gotta give it to you. Like reading the "Enquirer." Lots of real fantastic stuff. Got pictures? I want to see something from your imagination akin to "batboy' or an alien autopsy.

Call yourself "Mike Walker" from now on. he runs a gossip column on the "Enquirer" site.

Will you be attending court proceedings with the defendant to lend moral support?

Stop picking on my special needs son. I'll take care of you son, just like I always have. And no, it's not weird that you slept in my bed until you were in your 20's. Don't listen to those other mean boys.
