MASS. KILLED MY GIRL (Victim's Father Rips Mass. 'Stupidity')
The Boston Herald ^ | 21 November 2007 | Michele McPhee and Jessica Van Sack

Posted on 11/21/2007 6:11:19 AM PST by Hemingway's Ghost

The father of a Washington woman slaughtered along with her new husband - allegedly at the hands of a convicted Bay State killer - said his daughter’s accused murderer never should have been released from prison here.

“It’s because of stupidity in Massachusetts that my daughter is dead,” said Darrel Slater, 55, who is preparing to bury his daughter, Beverly Mauck, 28, and her husband Brian Mauck, 30.

The couple was executed in their home in rural Graham, Wash., Saturday after an alleged argument with Daniel Tavares Jr., 41, who in 1991 pleaded guilty to hacking his mother to death with a carving knife in their Somerset home in served 16 years for that crime.

Yup . . . the judge who set the perp free on personal recognizance was a Romney appointee and a registered Democrat.

But the Globe, at the time of her appointment, simply cared about the number of women Romney appointed to the bench.

Wow! Pictures say so much. A tattoo laden perp, a filthy looking, malignantly liberal judge and a clean cut couple scheduled for elimination. It says so much about why our country has sunk so low.

He killed his mother and assaulted prison guards, yet this judge releases him on personal recognizance? What kind of “judgment” is that? I don’t supposed the Boston Globe bothered to report on his release, before these two new victims were murdered. Is there a way to remove judges in Massachusetts? The DA’s office might think about hiring a spokesperson who could bring situations like this to the attention of the public, so at least people would be warned.

Nothing new. How many thousands of innocent people end up robbed, raped, maimed, killed because of lenience towards the bad guys?? The toll has been incalculable. Seems that you can’t even blame a Democrat governor for this judge being on the bench. Pretty sad. Of course as long as the American people just accept this nonsense, it will never change.

Here's the murderer's wife:

She told police officers she and her husband "were having sex" at 7 AM, the time of the murders, when they were interrupted by the sound of gunshots, but later she broke and admitted she was bullsh*tting.

The big reason for the murders?

“He claimed that Brian Mauck verbally insulted him and that Beverly Mauck verbally insulted Jennifer Tavares, and that ‘after spending 20 years in prison’ he was not going to put up with being called an insulting name,” the News Tribune reported, quoting court documents.

Liberals have at least seven of the following characteristics: lazy, greedy, ugly, homosexual, live off tax payers, uninformed, self-centered, criminal, unrealistic, drug abuser, communist, believe the United States is evil, believe the U.N. is a humanitarian organization, do not worship God.

Ugly is almost always one of the characteristics.

An official from the Massachusetts Republican Party said yesterday that the affiliations of the nominees have no bearing on their abilities.

''They all have prosecutorial experience," said Matt Wylie, the party's executive director. ''We can count on them to be law-and-order judges. Patronage has no place in hiring and appointments."

Romney has argued that political views don't matter when it comes to enforcing the law. The legal community celebrated the governor's new rules for the Judicial Nominating Commission, including a ''blind" first phase of the selection process that removes names from applications to ensure that candidates are judged on merits alone.

ghostrider: “Wow! Pictures say so much.”

Amazing, isn’t it? What a sad commentary on society that the judge, aka liberal shrew, was most likely more concerned about the tattooed freak than the risk he presented to society. Yet again, another clean cut couple cut down in the cause of political correctness.

Judge Kathe M. Tuttman, the lenient judge is the one person who could have stop the murderer. The worst thing about it is that she will not learn that evil must be destroyed and she will let more killers go unpunished, free to repeat their evil acts again and again.

Judges can be recalled by petition in Massachusetts, but the Legislature (being almost 90% Democrat) would certainly find a way to kill it. I know that people who haven’t lived in Mass. wonder why Mitt Romney would ever appoint a Democrat to a judgeship. The reason is that there were few eligible Republicans in the state of whom the legislature would approve. Today, there are even fewer.

I'm sure she's not sleeping so well. From the story:

Reached last night at her Andover home, Tuttman, who was appointed to the bench by former Gov. Mitt Romney, said, “I’m sorry, I’m not able to comment on this.” When informed what the slain woman’s father had said, she repeated, “I’m sorry, I’m not able to comment about this.”

A spokesman for Worcester District Attorney Joseph D. Early said prosecutors had wanted to keep Tavares behind bars last summer and argued for high bail because of the brutality of the alleged attacks on correction officers.

More on the judge:

STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, MAY 3, 2006…Some members of the Governor's Council continued to complain Wednesday that Gov. Mitt Romney is placing too many prosecutors on the bench, but they appear poised to approve one of them, Superior Court nominee Kathe Tuttman.

A 17-year veteran of the Essex County district attorney's office, Tuttman currently heads the Family Crimes and Sexual Assault Unit there. The 54-year-old Andover resident acknowledged her shortcomings during Wednesday's hearing.

"I haven't had civil litigation experience," but as president of her synagogue, Tuttman said, she has been involved in negotiating several contracts and in rewriting the congregation's bylaws.

While Tuttman herself was not challenged by councilors about her prosecutorial background, such questions were directed to those who came to endorse her candidacy.

Councilor Christopher Iannella, one of the four lawyers who sit on the eight-member council, has been a constant critic of the administration's propensity to appoint judges who have spent most of their careers as federal or state prosecutors.

"I personally think we have too many," Iannella said, speculating that three out of every four Romney nominees have such backgrounds.

That would be a great thing to do. But I am afraid that Judge Kathe M. Tuttman, the lenient judge, being a good liberal has no conscience and would sleep just as soundly, with no remorse.
