RIP Officer Maguire and my deepest condolences to your family.
This news just makes me so sad. It's always tough to hear of an officer injured/killed in the line if duty. My heart breaks for his family, and those who knew and loved him. It could happen to any officer, and I never take it for granted when my hubby comes home safe at the end of his shift. It also upsets me that the general public does not seem to appreciate the gravity of the situation, and how commonly these things happen now days. It is a dangerous job, in a dangerous world, and this officer gave the ultimate sacrifice.
Thank you for your life of selfless service. May you be rewarded in kind.
Very sad, Rest in Peace Officer Maguire.
RIP, brother. There's never a good time but the holidays must be the worst. Hope the suspects rot in hell.
Rest in Peace Officer Maguire. My deepest heartfelt sympathy to the Maguire family, the Woburn PD and the larger police community.
This is absolutely heartbreaking and it's truly disgusting that the media has just glossed over the story. This was the first story I heard this morning and when I didn't hear any more about it, I was a hopeful that I hadn't heard it correctly. Stay safe ladies and gentlemen, may God bless and protect you all.
Please join me in sending an email to the Governor's office to state how important it is that he order all flags to be flown at half staff in honor of Off. McGuire. You can go on the Governor's office website and contact him...here is my request...
I respectfully request that the flags of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts be flown at half staff on the day of the funeral for Woburn Officer John McGuire. This has been practice when it is a member of Fire Departments who perish in the line of duty. Officer McGuire was killed in the line of duty responding to a robbery in the middle of a blizzard. Unfortunately, the media coverage focused more on how the roadways were and how much it snowed in various towns rather than his death. His sacrifice was merely a blip on the media radar screen. Please consider this request as a sign of appreciation for the ultimate sacrifice that Officer McGuire made for the citizens of Woburn and a sign of respect for police officers in general.
should have been 3 dead suspects !
a long , solid career with a sad ending.
R.I.P. Officer John Maguire
Thoughts and prayers are with the Woburn Police Department and the officer's family. Rest In Peace Officer Maguire. Thank you for your service.
Horrible news of the day ........ RIP Officer Maguire.
RIP Officer Maguire. Another great warrior lost but not forgotten... Thought and prayers to the family and WPD.
Fox25 spent more time interviewing an MWRA guy and a Dunkin Donuts cashier on their way to work in this alleged storm.
Media: "Hi, this is (insert media person). Anything to report?"
Desk officer: "Go fuck yourself."
Thoughts and prayers to the family and friends of Officer Maguire. As far as the idiots who caused this tragedy, I only have sympathy for your families. May you personally rot in hell.
"Browning said he heard the suspect tell the officer "Do not do it," before the shots were fired."
The media and the witness clearly screwed up this reference
Thoughts and prayers are with the Woburn Police Department and the Officer Maguire's family. Rest In Peace and Thank you for your service. Godspeed.
Rest in peace Officer Maquire.
RIP brother, my thoughts and prayers are with your family.
Contact us - Office of the Governor
You can get him a msg. on FB as well.
It should be automatic that the flags be flown at half-staff at State Gov. buildings when an Officer dies in the line of duty...
Rest in peace Officer McGuire. Our family's thoughts and prayers to yours.
God Bless Officer McGuire. Our condolences to the Family and Friends of this Hero.
May you rest in Peace.

RIP. I know the city of woburn will lower their flags for a police officer they have in the past. Officer Maguire was a good guy. The governor should have all the flags lowered for this action. May he rest in peace.
