A young Revere police officer on their gang unit ends a night out with his fiancée by joining other off duty gang unit members behind the high school. There is alcohol present. Then a 17 year old arrives. Words are exchanged between the off-duty, out of uniform, most likely intoxicated, police officers and this kid. Maybe the kid got smacked around. Maybe not. But he was pissed-off after dealing with these guys so he called some friends. The friends arrive.
The events that occurred immediately after ended with the young officer dead. Shot in the head. By a gun not issued to any Revere police officer.
D.A. Dan Conley charges the 17 year old with accessory to murder. The kid called his friends, remember? He is not the suspected shooter. His friends have not yet been identified or arrested.
Right away Dan Conley wrapped himself around the Revere police. He made gratuitous statements and vowed to get the killers. Any layperson can see that this case maybe a little fishy. Perhaps one of the off-duty officers pulled a gun on one of the kids to scare them. Perhaps one friend pulled a gun and shot in self-defense of himself or another.
Perhaps he was shot with a throw-away used by another officer.
Dan being Dan jumped in head first and tells us it is all about the cops being good guys.
Remember, this is the guy who wouldn’t prosecute any police officer after the Snelgrove homicide during the Red Sox celebration. The official report details others assaults committed by Boston police officers upon civilians. The report identifies many witnesses. Lay up to prosecute. Dan Conley did nothing.
Remember the detective caught on video stealing expensive sun glasses from a Newbury St. boutique. Dan Conley did nothing. On film and Dan Conley did nothing.
Did Conley’s misfeasance is fuel for bad and near bad police officers.
Now he runs as quickly as he can to protect the Revere Police. I can’t wait for the trial of the 17 year old.
Not guilty I am wagering.
BTW Word is Michael Flaherty is seriously considering sacking the mayoral run and going after Conley. To me it is a no-brainer.
