I bit my tongue yesterday when this wanted poster appeared, but now this morning, seeing it again, I can no longer contain myself. Who in Seekonk or Swansea cares about some witness dude that didn't show in Stoughton? Who did this guy kill, is he one of the missing bombers? Put a nice feel good story up in place of this mug shot!

Hes not been around the Lodge. It was an isolated sitiution and no one there as anything to worry about. I live there and knew the people before the incident.
