A few weeks ago I blogged about Carmen Ortiz not doing herself favors by pursuing the civil forfeiture case against the mortgage free low-end motel in Tewksbury. Fifteen drug arrests occurred in thiity thousand rented rooms over 14 years. Yeah, you heard me right.
The evidence showed the feds have real estate experts searching for property with no mortgage or a low one. They then try to build a case to seize it. This case is beyond ridiculous.
Attorney Matt Connelly mentioned this case on his Whitey Bulger blog in the context of the media coverage it has received. Practically none. Does that make sense? Think about it? We know all there is to know about the poor woman with the bad driving history who was this week’s flavor or the month.
And the unfortunate bastard who caused the Green Line rear-ender today will be put on a plate for us to carve into very shortly.
But this flagrant and well documented prosecutorial abuse goes under the media radar. Especially by the Boston Globe.
Why? This case should be the coffee talk. Carmen Ortiz should own this. It’s scary stuff.
Connolly has shown many halve truths, false innuendoes, and at best naive interpretations of facts reported by the Globe over the years that play the precise tune the boys with federal badges like to hear.
Talk about wink wink nod nod. Could historians find files many years from now that document a relationship that would destroy the Globe’s self-written image of purity and integrity?
I don’t know. But Connolly has me thinking. Big time!
Remember a few months ago a Globe columnists was secretly suspended for supposedly plagiarizing a blogger on an benign editorial? It sounded fishy then, but hey, who am I to question what the Globe does? That’s not my thing, right?
Didn’t this same columnists pen a well written piece a few weeks prior criticizing Judge Richard Stearns decision to stay on the Bulger case? (This is one of many strange pre-trial goings on that Connolly questions)
Do I see set-up? Were the bosses sending a message? Did they have a choice? The devil always wants more, right? Am I delusional?
Jesus Christ I’m starting to scare myself. Does this sound like the stuff heard outside the Lindemann Center before it opens in the morning?
Fucking Matt Connolly has me all discombobulated.
“Don’t you see man? They’re all in it together. There’s no place to run. They’re all pods man, they’re all pods……Mind if I bum a butt from ya?.”
By promoting non-stories into stories and non-scandals into scandals on a state level and ignoring and not covering significant local stories occurring at the federal level is the Globe and other local media controlled de facto by the federal government?
Hmmm, just because I’m crazy doesn’t mean I’m wrong, right?
So “Contracts Don’t Apply to Me” Howie Carr pointed out today what is pretty much universally agreed upon: Martha Coakley is wrongfully prosecuting Tim Cahill. He did nothing criminally wrong.
But Howie pisses on Tim for his run for governor which may have cost his man Baker the corner office.
So Howie being Howie ends his non-endorsement endorsement of Cahill with
And now Tim Cahill is being railroaded. But it’s hard to feel much sympathy for a boob who got an even bigger boob re-elected.
What a dick! Really. What a fuckin’ dick.
