    This was probably a fight over who got the last spoonful of Kraft Mac & Cheese.

      I’m sure you would fnot find this funny if it was someone you knew. Grow up.

      • Edward Ellis

        Let’s see what the investigation turns up. I live in Roxbury, and I’ve seen people get murdered for less. That’s my experience. Also, I’m a Democrat. I know what I know, and I’ve seen what I’ve seen. When was the last time you were anywhere near a block like mine. Probably too long a drive from Wayland, or Sherborn. Bet the only thing you know about Diversity is the Rainbow/Green party bumper sticker on your Beemer. You are the one that needs to grow up and smell the coffee ! Starbucks for you of course.

        Liberalism is a mental disorder. Did you get in line twice?

    @Rob Cleary, you just continue to prove my point. Thank you!

    You need mental health treatment. Run don’t walk to the nearest emergency room. What a donkey.

    • Michelle Fuller Fitzgerald

      Thank you Jean….the voice of reason!

      • Edward Ellis

        More the voice of a NIMBY/Elitist Cadillac Lib. Peace.

  • Michelle Fuller Fitzgerald

    Edward, you know nothing about me or where I live so back off! I think the comment was crude and insenstive to the people who loved this man. I don’t drive a beemer and I live in a largely diverse community. So that blows your “theory”. What else you got?

    • Michelle Fuller Fitzgerald

      Oh, and I thinks Starbucks coffee sucks. I make mine the old fashioned way in my coffee pot before I go to work everday. Yes, I work, everday. How about that!

      Am I supposed to understand your disturbed rant?

      • Michelle Fuller Fitzgerald

        Or care what you think of me for that matter? Ummmmm, nope! You are just making yourself look like an idiot. Must not be that hard for you though.

    Okay, okay, calm down. There is no need to fight right now. A man was stabbed. This is not a place for personal arguments, please take your feud elsewhere. Thanks – a middle schooler.

    • Michelle Fuller Fitzgerald

      You’re correct me, I don’t know why I am bothering with that Bozo. Thanks for setting me straight.

    2:30 am on a Saturday night. I suppose no drugs and alchohol were behind the incident. 48 years old? Stabbing an elderly man? She must have woke him up wanting money or something. I hope the court removes her from the house. I’m willing to bet the old man was paying the rent, not the 48 year old loser.
