    good work by the staties. congrats on making the commonwealth a little bit safer. as a member of the extended family of the long blue line, i appreciate the work you do, and the risk you face on any given day. in the words of sgt esterhaus of hill street blues, “let’s be careful out there.”

    Any bets on how long it will take for these guys to be out on the street once again? It appears that if you come before the right judge in this state, your chances of walking are quite good. Most people are afraid of committing a crime because they don’t want to go to jail but there are others who can get nailed for 5 DUI’s or have an arrest record 3 pages long yet are not in jail. Just why is that?
