Soulless is the creature that kills without thought or regret
Soulless is the mother who discards her child like last nights dinner
Soulless is the teacher who refuses to teach the disabled
Soulless is the owner who refuses to serve someone because of their skin color
Soulless is the man who wears I white sheet and peers through the empty eye sockets and becomes judge, jury, and executioner of the innocent
Soulless are those who care not for the pain that they cause to anyone
Soulless are those that take what doesn’t belong to them
Soulless are those that bite the hand that feeds them

Everyone starts off innocent
Everyone chooses the road they take
I hope you’ve chosen the right road

Every time we think that crime has taken a break from the sports world another story pops up. Last evening Jared fatal stabbed 27-year-old Jennifer Martel to death. Fortunately, Martel’s child who was also in the home of Jared Remy at the time of the murder, was unharmed and is safe in the custody of the state welfare department. District attorney Marian Ryan stated that Jared Remy was arrested and charged with Martel’s murder. Jared had been arrested on Tuesday for assault and battery, but was released on personal recognizances. Jared Remy is the son of Jerry Remy who is a broadcaster for the Boston Red Sox. Jared had been fired from his job as a Security Officer at Fenway Park in 2009 due to his involvement in a steroid scandal where he had sold drugs to a staffer by the name of Nicholas Cyr. Jared Remy had another arrest in 2005 for assault and battery of a former girlfriend.

It amazes me that abusive people always seem to stay free so they can kill those they set to to kill. Who is protecting the innocent? Why do criminals continue to have more rights than their victims? Maybe this one slipped through the cracks because his father was a sports broadcaster. I’m suddenly grateful that although my 20 year old has the height and build to play sports that he has no want to do so. We all know that there are criminals all over, but for whatever reason sports seems to have such a large criminal base. Steroids had stretched things out even more pulling in security. Will we next hear that team physicians have been in on steroids the entire time? Only tie will tell.

Something has gone so terribly wrong when you have to close a local public swimming pool because of a death threat made by a 22-year-old. On a warm summer day people just want to sit by the pool and relax. That desire was unattainable on Thursday, August 8, 2013 because of the acts of one disgruntled young man by the name of Antwon Perkins from Dorchester, MA, who threatened to return to the pool in lrder to shoot two male lifeguards after they had to remove him from the McCrehan Pool on Rindge Avenue in Cambridge, MA. Perkins was arrested.

A 33-year-old Angel L. Rivera of 239 Acushnet Ave. in New Bedford, was arrested yesterday for pulling a knife on his former boss at Advantage Delivery Services, after he and a fellow employee were terminated for using the company gas card to purchase cigarets. Rivera has been ordered to stay 500ft away from his former boss and was released with the understanding that he must return to Hingham District court on September 18, 2013. Rivera is certainly old enough to know better than to charge items to a card that does not personally belong to him.

I saved the best for last The Police say a woman who was accused of being drunk when her car rammed into a Boston Globe newspaper delivery truck threatened to put a voodoo hex on the arresting officer. Click here to see video

What’s The Punishment for Killing Your Wife?

49-Year-Old Michael Rivard pleaded not guilty for running down his wife, Beatrice Rivard, and harming their son back in November of 2012. Michael Rivard was charged with unsafe operation of a motor vehicle and for driving with a suspended license. He’s lucky, he only has to spend 20 months in jail and the rest is suspended during three years of supervised probation. His only true discomfort will be his inability to drive while he is on probation. I’m not usually one to assume the guilt of another person, but in this case, this person has been involved in a number of car related accidents with his family. It gives me the feeling that he was always trying to harm them, but could never go through with it, and this time he did, but left his special needs son alive.  It hurts to know that the value of his wife’s life was only worth 20 months in jail.  Had this been the very first time this happened, maybe I would have felt more comfortable with the sentence, but not when there were other driving related incidents involving the same people. This is the kind of mentality that puts drunk drivers back out on the road so that they to have a chance to hurt again and again.  What does it take for things to change?
