  1. The punishment for the two juveniles will be harsh and swift! Rachael Rollins will see to it that both will get a severe reprimand and have their cellphones and Xboxes taken away for a day.

  2. Good point, Alan.

    Thank you to the police for fast action in several of the above incidents.

    But I would like to see a log of *solved cases* for breakins, burglary, assault, porch and car theft, shoplifting, and much more. Solving crimes is part of law enforcement, is it not?

    Do the Watertown Police (and police in other communities) actually *solve* any of these crimes? If so, please tell us about the persons, indictments, and dispositions.

    Now, see below the crimes for which Suffolk County DA Rachel Rollins will not (yes, NOT!) prosecute the offender. You are not going to believe it.

    Of course, Watertown is in Middlesex County but you get the point.


    “Charges for which the Default is to Decline Prosecuting (unless supervisor permission is obtained).

    Shoplifting (including offenses that are essentially shoplifting but charged as larceny)
    Larceny under $250
    Disorderly conduct
    Disturbing the peace
    Receiving stolen property
    Minor driving offenses, including operating with a suspend or revoked license
    Breaking and entering — where it is into a vacant property or where it is for the purpose of sleeping or seeking refuge from the cold and there is no actual damage to property
    Wanton or malicious destruction of property
    Threats – excluding domestic violence
    Minor in possession of alcohol
    Drug possession
    Drug possession with intent to distribute
    A stand alone resisting arrest charge, i.e. cases where a person is charged with resisting arrest and that is the only charge
    A resisting arrest charge combined with only charges that all fall under the list of charges to decline to prosecute, e.g. resisting arrest charge combined only with a trespassing charge”

    In other words, even if the police solve a crime, the DA may let the criminal go. This is insanity.

    I ask respectfully: It seem to me that crime pays, does it not, Chief Lawn and other local police chiefs?
