He is the biggest douche bag ever. I am not sure but didn't people bring up that the Quinn Bill was next on the chopping block? I think the douche bag brought it front and center.
Absolutley, I was thinking the same. Now Howie and these other hacks can have a brand new topic to discuss on how to stop wasting money on the police.

I can hear it now, I work in the private sector and I dont get any incentive for having my degree, why should they? It's really unbelievable how anti-cop this state has become.

I thought it was bad enough having to listen to the crap coming out of people's mouths on calls, now its coming from everywhere I turn. I am becoming more and more disgusted with this state and the people in it every day.

If I send an unsigned, anonymous letter to Mike Barnicle at the Herald stating Howie Carr is a child molester and a heroin addict, should I assume it will be given the same veracity and end up in Barnicle's next column as the gospel truth?

LOL, you should try it! I think we all know what the answer would be.

I got sucked into reading some of the comments as well, I especially liked the one where the guys said his dislike was so bad for cops, if he saw one down, he would just keep rolling by. My other favorite was the "triage ER nurse" who said she gets pleasure making "cops take seat" in the waiting room when he/she comes in injured on duty.

:sb:Carr is a loser. He is a loud mouth. I never liked him. Jerry Williams was much better. Listening to Howie Carr is like listening to someone with ADD off their meds. One minute about this, the next about the Red Sox, the next about pancakes. The only person more annoying to listen too is Mike Barnicle and his 1967 red sox!

The only guy I like is Jay and thats that.

Michael Graham is okay. But to think someone as smart as he does buys into this detail crap has probably been sleeping with Margery.

Eagan its a moron she has no idea what she is talking about, Braude I can handle if I take something to calm my stomach.

What do you do when you see blue lights on the highway you SLOW DOWN, the cruisers are doing their jobs and many times I have seen MSP Cruisers pull out of details to back up other cruisers and or deal with high rollers who are probably drunk.

I have never heard the excuse "I'm on a detail I can't help the sector cars out" from any officer ever. I remember one time a police officer I knew was on a detail at the shopping mall, and they needed another officer to go on a domestic, he told the cruiser to pick him up and he went.

The next cuts will be the most vulnerable people who truely need the states help client services of the DMH and DMR will be cut since the .gov seems to believe that the general public won't notice. Average state hospital bed wait time is now 5-6 months no matter how bad you are. Who cares if the patient hurts other patients while he or she is waiting in a private psych unit!

Then the next cuts will be State Colleges. They just won't give pay increases to the teachers.

Complete and utter BS that could easily be solved and closed if the governor wrote a real budget. We would still have a shortfall. I never told my wife "I'm only working 1 day a week because I plan to win the lottery to pay the mortgage" Thats what deval did by having the stupid casino proposal $$ as part of his budget.

I totally agree with Delta. Why the heck is an anonymous letter the source of a news article?

Someone brought up a good point: if the letter's for real, the only reason that the vindictive ex-wife didn't sign it is because she's still raking in her share of the proceeds.

Are the numbers legit? If the numbers add up then perhaps the letter really was written by a vicious ex-wife, but the fact that she was too cowardly to sign her name (and expose the source of her alimony payments) makes me think she's just as big of a scumbag as her ex -- if any of this is true. I say he's a scumbag if he's really cheating the system to the extent that the anonymous letter writer claims.

I didn't read the comments section of the Carr article online, mainly because I hate to read about all the hatred that people have for cops. Those same people would call the cops in a heartbeat if they needed a cop, but they rag about them to Howie online when they don't.

What a nutty world.

Seems as if it's not an ex-wife...perhaps an ex-trooper looking for revenge? Who could it be? Someone who left recently? Hmmmm.....
Yea she seems to know too much about exactly how he did it...if she really is that big of a bitch I'm sure she wouldn't care about where the money was coming from, all she would care about is that she was getting it :rolleyes:
I also think one guy hit the proverbial nail on the head:
"Two columns about the state police in two weeks. Must be a slow news week...yeah, nothing significant going on at all. No local ties to the biggest financial crisis in 80 years is there Howie? Its funny how in a good economy these troopers are a bunch of fools risking their lives for chump change. When things are bad in the private sector they become overpaid layabouts. Keep up the good work Howie. Keep printing unsubstantiated, anonymous pablum. Just keep repeating the Dan Rather mantra, "The story is true!""

What if it's not a she; it's a he? What if it's a disgruntled ex-trooper that wrote it to get back at his co workers because he was despised and was a miserable SOB?

Perhaps it's a guy who liked to write cops tickets or something? Maybe he recently retired and then did this to get revenge because he always said he would? Hypothetically speaking, of course.

That's what I was getting at. I don't think the wife would've paid that much attention to exactly how the trooper got his money. The amount of detail provided and number of "methods" seems like it's coming from an ex-troopers mouth...or some fat slob who thinks he can write.

I can't seem to pull up "Honest" Howie's article. I wish I could have read it. Its such a shame he can't write about the poor victims of our society rolling up to the store to spend their WIC money in their new Cadillac Fleetwood Broughams.....

repeat offender


Boston Globe columnist Mike Barnicle's active imagination finally brings him down.

BY TOM MASHBERG
BOSTON -- After narrowly escaping execution last week, Boston Globe columnist Mike Barnicle was finally forced to walk the plank today when it was revealed that he had made up yet another column, a 1995 tear-jerker about a black child and a white one who became friends when they were both hospitalized with cancer. The veteran columnist was a favorite among journalism's old-boy network, as well as a major circulation draw, which is why the Globe continued to cut him slack for so long in the face of mounting evidence that he was a fabulist and plagiarist. Barnicle's pals in the national media like to paint him as a street scribe who boldly sets foot where J-school nancyboys daren't tread. But the truth is that Barnicle has been making it up and mailing it in from his manse in suburban Lincoln for 15 years.

Maybe Howie Carr should re-read this....
