    Attorney General Maura Healey should consider taking over the prosecution of Bampumim Teixeira, the alleged cutthroat killer of those two unfortunate South Boston doctors. Otherwise he will be prosecuted by the same people who are responsible for allowing the convicted bank robber to walk the streets of Boston when he should have been deported. That would be Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel F. Conley, who, in a plea-bargain deal, enabled Teixeira to resume his life on the streets and wreak havoc on the lives of two innocent people.
  • Plea deal saved alleged killer of doctors from deportation

    There is a good chance that the two wellrespected doctors viciously murdered in their South Boston condo would be alive today if Bampumim Teixeira, the alleged killer, had been deported. But he wasn't. Instead the immigrant who was born in Guinea-Bissau, a small, impoverished nation on the west coast of Africa, and who grew up on Cape Verde, was given a pass. In the United States as a green card holder, Teixeira was allowed to plea bargain down two unarmed bank robbery charges that allowed him to keep his green card and avoid deportation, according to the Boston Herald and...

    BOSTON (CBS/AP) — A man accused of brutally killing two engaged doctors inside the penthouse of a luxury Boston condominium building has a criminal history of robbing banks, said police, who did not provide a motive in the case but said the suspect most likely knew the victims. Bampumim Teixeira is expected to be arraigned Monday on multiple charges.

The couple's hands were bound and their bodies mutilated, the Boston Globe reports, citing a source close to the investigation. Blood coated the wall, the paper added.

As police arrived, Teixeira began firing at the officers. Police returned fire and hit the man several times, but did not...

    The Boston Red Sox have had enough of the racial slurs being thrown around Fenway Park and are beginning to take action. According to a team press release on Wednesday, a fan has been permanently banned from Fenway Park after being caught directing a racial slur toward another person during Tuesday night’s game. The Boston Globe reported the incident happened immediately following the national anthem, which has been performed by a Kenyan woman. The report states a Red Sox fan wearing a team hat and T-shirt uttered a racial slur to describe the woman’s rendition of the anthem.

    The historic meeting house where colonists gathered to begin challenging British rule in the years leading to the American Revolution and launched the Boston Tea Party has been damaged and closed to the public. Officials say the Old South Meeting House sustained accidental damage from nearby construction. The meeting house is one of the country’s most important colonial-era sites. It may be best known as the location where the Boston Tea Party began in 1773 when colonists dumped tea into Boston Harbor in defiance of the Tea Act, seen by many as a form of taxation without representation. …

    Fatima Perspectives ^ | May 1, 2017 | Christopher A. Ferrara
    In his column of April 28, Phil Lawler notes that over the past fifty years — meaning since the end of the Second Vatican Council, 52 years ago — not a single new parish has opened in the Archdiocese of Boston, but on the contrary some 125 parishes have either closed or been consolidated with other parishes. During the same period, he further notes, the number of Catholic priests has fallen from 2,500 to 300 — a staggering drop of 90%! And most of those, I would add, are probably over the age of 60. Yet the Catholic population of...

    The mother of the 6-year-old boy who was wounded by gunfire in Roxbury lashed out at Mayor Martin J. Walsh last night, calling him a “liar” and insisting her son’s father was not the intended target of Sunday night’s shooting. “Mayor Walsh is a liar,” the mother told the Herald during a brief phone conversation from Boston Medical Center, where her son is hospitalized. “He lied about my kid’s father that he said that he was a target, when he was not a target. We were innocent bystanders. He did not say that. He didn’t speak to him at all.”

    LGBTQ activists threatened "large-scale violence," rioting and "possible deaths" if they were not allowed to participate in Sunday's St. Patrick’s Day Parade, parade organizers said. According to parade officials, Boston Police said homosexuals bused in from other states to "disrupt" the festivities were a serious threat unless Catholic organizers permitted a gay veterans group in the parade. Police not only determined the gay threats were "credible" but warned that they would not guarantee the safety of the public, including children. It was also implied that organizers would be responsible if gay violence erupted. Faced with the threat of "large-scale" gay...

    A 32-year-old computer whiz who was raised in Stoughton is suspected of using the high-tech skills he honed at Hub colleges to spread the bloodthirsty message of ISIS terrorists on social media, according to a Herald source and news reports. Ahmad Abousamra — who was educated at Northeastern University and UMass Boston — had already been placed on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists list last year with a $50,000 reward offered for information leading to his capture and return. The FBI said Abousamra “has shown that he wants to kill United States soldiers.” He is now believed to be a...

    A gay veterans group said Wednesday it has been denied permission to march in this year’s Boston St. Patrick’s Day parade just two years after organizers made the groundbreaking decision to allow gay groups to participate for the first time. OutVets, which marched in Boston’s 2015 St. Patrick’s Day parade after decades of resistance from organizers, said on its Facebook page that the reason for the denial to this year’s parade is unclear, but “one can only assume it’s because we are LGBTQ.”

    The group Not My President’s Day announced a rally scheduled for Monday in Boston had to be canceled, according to a statement Thursday. The rally would have been in the Boston Common from 12 p.m. until 4 p.m. EST. The group announced it was not granted a permit, but it’s also worth noting that only 173 of the 1,200 individuals invited to the event said they planned on attending. “We were unable to get a permit in time for the rally, so officially, we’re not hosting an event in Boston. However, we do have one planned in NYC!” The official...

    BOSTON (CBS) – An immigrant worker at Logan Airport says his dream of becoming a U.S. citizen was stolen. In January he received a notice in the mail inviting him to a naturalization ceremony. He brought his mother. “This was like the end of it all. I was really proud. It was at the JFK library,” the employee said. The man spoke to WBZ-TV on the condition of anonymity because of what happened next. “They check this list and realize my name is not on there and they’re like, ‘You’re going to have to leave. Somebody’s going to have to...

    Smart economists never predict the stock market. Our theory tells us that it's impossible. Leaving aside inside information, everyone already knows what we know and has traded on this old news and moved stock prices accordingly. Princeton economist Burton Malkiel popularized this point in his famous book A Random Walk Down Wall Street. The fact that only "new news," things that people don't yet know or expect, should change stock prices means that stock movements are supposed to be random — that is, unpredictable.
