Massoftwoshitz is the home of Kennedy and Kerry. I hope this guy sues the heck out of them and wins.
Franklin, Massachusetts fails the Town Square Test.
Punching someone that is handcuffed is about as cowardly as any human can get.
“Resisting arrest” and “Assaulting a police officer” are just boilerplate charges the police lay donw on anyone they want to beat the hell out of.
IMHO, these are not police officers involved in this crime but just thugs with guns and badges. It’s government behavior like this which is why the Founders put the Second Amendment in place.
“Punching someone that is handcuffed is about as cowardly as any human can get.”
Cops do it all the time and worse.
He must learn that Der Fuhrer is not pro-life.
I am skeptical of any group named “Mass” anything.
Rhymes with *ss, as in critical mass = chronic A**holes.
Cite another source besides this website and I might be interested.
Btw: I am 100% pro-life, just not on board with the “Anti-abortion” crowd. YES! There is a difference!
Pro-life to me means you support causes that support men and women who are in difficult times and try and do what you can to save a child's life.
Anti-abortion too often seems to = showing god awful pictures to unsuspecting people and children hoping for the shock value. Sure it's shocking, but all it does is make me want to punch YOU in the brain!
Do cops beat the crap out of people? Every day for sure.
Do “Anti-abotionists” push the limits? Damn straight they do.
Pro-life 100%! not “Anti-abortion” “Mass” anything.

It is apparant to any who use their mind that the government is at war with constitutional conservative Americans and are facist ideologues and are full of hatred and malice for their fellow man. Bet that they are democrats to boot, the home of neo nazi facism.
dude, MassResistance is one of the finest grassroots organizations on the planet. But you don’t know anything ‘bout ‘em, so why shoot your mouth off?
FYI, “Mass” stands for Massachusetts.
massresistance website is down ... or blocked by ATT or something.
It is disingenuous of you to claim to be “pro-life” while attacking those who believe in protecting unborn life. I would suggest that you are not free to redefine the term “pro-life” to suit your purposes. You are of course free to hold any position you wish, but it is misleading and deceptive to claim “I am 100% pro-life” when the term obviously means something quite different to you than understood by others. You are clearly not on the side of the anti-abortion protesters in Mass., so why pretend you are “pro-life”?
Pro-life but not anti-abortion? Right.
The new thinking goes like this... "Diversity for me, but not for thee - because I am moral and good and you stand in the way of my utopia you must be immoral and evil. All in the past who had a different vision for society are in opposition to my vision and must be vilified, that my vision may manifest itself without competition."
The police serve to eliminate the competition, and force the socialist vision on those who do not want their utopia. Useful idiots, the police have been dutifully changing their roll to polite society from the neighborhood cop who was everyone's friend to the bad a$$ intimidator who writes traffic tickets for inconsequential technical violations and threatens your property rather than protect it. The courts are little help as they have left the practice of constitutional law for the practice of expediency and their own vision of state power that they can wield.
The new enemies of the state are all non-stateist including: constitutional advocates of limited government, religious bodies who do not believe that the state is the ultimate reality in the life of man, home educators who do not support the government-union unholy marriage, advocacy groups who focus on the bill of rights (NRA, HSLDA, etc) and small business owners who compete against the government-corporate interests.
King George never tried to rule the colonies with such a iron fist of tyranny as we now call American government. Liberty was a great idea, too bad she is now on the critically endangered list.
I’m not missing anything. I had previously read this story while FR was down, and was simply struck by the other poster’s odd statements.
This incident demonstrates that Christians should really consider leaving MA. I understand that some courageous souls will want to be martyrs and the ‘light in the darkness’, but we need to re-establish a moral and civil society somewhere. Conservatives should concentrate in conservative states and swing states where we can use state law to protect and promote civil society. MA can serve as an example of Sodom and Gomorrah.
These “officers” spit on the grave of Sir Robert Peel with their behavior.
