Double edge sword. I applaud the fact that he knew kids everywhere would blindly and naively seeRead More the cover of rolling stone and be affected by it in a way that supports and encourages and dare I say, idolizes a terrorist. On the other end, he broke the law and there's WAY too much of that getting swept under the rug. At the end of the day I'm happy he did it. The image of him bloody is more shocking than that ridiculous picture on RS. I think regardless of how much exposure he got, it worked for the greater good.

I'm going with hawk's opinion. What he did counteracted the Rolling Stone cover, showing the realRead More truth of what happened. Though it would be nice to know if he received money for his photos or just released them- anyone know?

Hawk.....There were no laws broken here. Yes, he may have broken a department policy. But not aRead More policy that should have forced his retirement. Think of this. Police and Fire departments all over the country now post Twitter pictures while on scene working an incident. Obviously if their taking pictures, then their not doing their jobs. Isn't that breaking department policy also? No reprimands happening. I still think this was a lame decission by the MSP.

The spineless rodent who murdered Tyler Zanco is still at large. I would hope that, even inRead More Massachusetts, this takes preference over flippin' shoplifters. If I DO spot one of these hardened criminals in the photos, however, I will immediately call 911, and go into self-imposed lockdown!

raymay, nice assumptions you just made. I actually do ride the bus and train 5 days a week to andRead More from work. I do deal with the delays in the winter while waiting outside and ride with all the diverse people. I would be a short walk to the Green Line stop at College Ave, and still don't think it's worth the money. Would be convenient, but as stated above, would rather have the money go to improving the existing system (so we don't have cold and hot weather delays) or to expand in areas much less served than ours. Good day sir.

i find it amazing that the river only floods in wilmington! even though the river only bordersRead More wilmington and does not pass through it, i guess the water must either tip ot angle towards the wilmington side or on the other side the banks must be real high?

Consider that the stream needs to have larger culverts at each bridge as it progresses downstream.Read More If they increase the culvert size at one bridge, that means more water will flow downstream to the next bridge. And the series of culverts are in several towns. Does anyone calculate the flow of the stream relative to culvert size?
