It's the Massachusetts Way

You gotta "love" a state where the people in charge do everything in their power to (a) make it as difficult as possible for law-abiding citizens to protect themselves and their families from murderous scumbags, and (b) ensure that murderous scumbags are free to walk the streets with impunity.

Meet Oscar Rosa.

November 26, 2006:

The suspect, Oscar Rosa, 20, is accused of stabbing Craig Vierra on Nov. 26 at about 2:15 a.m. Patrol officers spotted a fight on Lansdowne Street and discovered that Vierra had been stabbed. Officers chased several men who ran from the scene and arrested Rosa after they said he discarded a knife.

December 11, 2006:

Boston police today asked for the public's help locating a suspect wanted for the fatal stabbing of a 32-year-old man on Lansdowne Street in November.


And, from the Boston Herald:

Boston police are hunting a Natick man who apparently went on the lam after he was released on $5,000 bail for stabbing a bouncer at Avalon last month, charges that were upgraded to murder after the victim died last week.

The disappearance of suspect Oscar Rosa, 20, brought a strong rebuke over the bail amount yesterday from the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office, which had asked for $20,000 bail.


"Insomuch that bail is set to ensure that a suspect is returned to court to face the charges,” Wark said, "it's apparent that the bail set here did not meet that goal."

What??? The guy didn't show up????


I am truly shocked!

Has he no respect for our laws?

UPDATE: Here's one you don't see everyday.


This morning, Rosa arrived at Boston Municipal Court where he surrendered to homicide detectives relative to the murder warrant. Rosa was escorted to District 4 where he was booked and charged with Murder.

I guess every bell curve has its outliers.
