My most sincere, heartfelt and profound condolences go out to the family both next of kin, and brothers and sisters who wear the badge of this officer made the ultimate sacrifice while off duty to preserve and protect the peace in his community as is the duty of all sworn law enforcement personnel on or off duty in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
The same situation happened right here in Worcester, Massachusetts at the Ding Ho Dynasty Restaurant where the lover of a Worcester police officer was gunned down for trying to uphold the peace and community standards of behavior in public.
It is a sad commentary of our times where there are so many armed thugs prowling our City and Town streets and the police are hampered by the law itself in doing the job they are trained to do to keep our communities safe with all the hatred directed at law enforcement on the one hand, and on the other you have the civil libertarians demanding that the law enforcement community does not "racially profile" or "randomly target" what officers intuition tells them are prime suspected armed felons.
We must change the laws to allow stop & frisk if we are ever going to make a dent in the amount and frequency of police officers getting needlessly gunned down by career criminals here in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
My thoughts and prayers go out to this officer, in his memory, and they also go out to the lawmakers on the Beacon Hill, that we change out laws to give the law enforcement the upper hand against the criminal conspirators in the vast criminal conspiracy to traffic illegal narcotics in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and also end the vast amounts of fraud, waste, and abuse of our public programs so that we can afford to pay our police the salary they deserve as well.
Rest in Peace Officer Daniel Talbot, Revere Police Department, Revere, Massachusetts USA!
