Here’s a brief summary of the highlights of cop killer Thomas Latanowich’s criminal career:

- April 2008 – assault and battery and malicious destruction of property
- May 2008 – two counts of carrying a gun without an FID card, one count of unlawful storage of a firearm, and one count of violating a firearm surrender order. Sentenced to prison but never actually went to prison for this.
- December 2008 with improper firearm storage, carrying a gun without an FID card, and defacing a serial number on a firearm. Got away with at a bench trial, just months after previous gun charge.
- And again in July 2009 – two counts of possessing a firearm without an FID card
- August 2009 – heroin trafficking and receiving stolen property.
- January 2010 – grand jury on Jan. 15 found enough evidence to indict Thomas Latanowich on a total of 27 counts of possessing a firearm without proper identification, one count of trafficking heroin, one count of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and seven counts of receiving stolen property valued over $250, among other charges.
- January 2010 – In Dennis, Latanowich allegedly pulled a gun on a woman he had lived
- June 2010 – carrying a dangerous weapon (double aged switchblade). Sentenced to prison where he stayed until 2014.
- August 2014 with unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, negligent operation of a motor vehicle, using a motor vehicle without authority, and speeding
- October 2016 with assault and battery of a pregnant woman, strangulation or suffocation of a pregnant woman, and vandalizing property. The case was dismissed after the alleged victim, Krystal M. Bearse, asserted her Fifth Amendment privilege, records show.
- December 2016 – Stabbed a guy who had just been released from the state corrections center in Hyannis and was being driven home by his girlfriend. Latanowich tailed their vehicle and when they pulled up to a red light, he got of his vehicle, approached the victim’s vehicle, then stabbed the man, police said.
Except for the time he was serving a state prison sentence between 2010 and 2014, Thomas M. Latanowich has been arrested at least once a year by police on Cape Cod. https://t.co/Z5XuADR479

Oh, and the the pregnant woman he choked who later pled the fifth and allowed him to get away with it – she was pregnant with his kid. Here’s their baby bump registry.
His brother Dan is a real winner too:
A charge of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon filed against a 36-year-old Hyannis man after an altercation at a funeral home was dismissed Tuesday. Daniel Latanowich allegedly threw a metal flower holder that hit a woman in the head during a June 2015 wake at Chapman Cole & Gleason Funeral Home in Mashpee. When police arrived, several witnesses told them a fight broke out because the deceased woman’s father did not want Latanowich there, according to court documents. The charge was dropped in Falmouth District Court because the victim failed to cooperate, documents show.
Showing up at wakes that he’s been disinvited to and throwing chairs at women. What a classy family.
Just last week, investigators believe accused cop killer Thomas Latanowich led them on a chase in Everett, but got away. He lost the bumper of the car which police say was registered to his dad #WCVB pic.twitter.com/TY9GADVuFy

Do I blame his parents? Of course. They’re Cape Cod trash. They raised trashy kids. They could tell their kids were going down the wrong paths when they were growing up, but instead of being parents they just let their shitty kids become shittier while they ripped Newport 100’s and went to the bar down the street.
In 2013 while in jail he was paroled as well, and went right back after a parole violation:
Why would a career criminal ever get paroled? Oh yea, because people like Tonomey Coleman sit on parole boards. Here’s what he said at his confirmation hearing to get on the parole board, which he passed with a 5-3 vote:
There are some promises that Tonomey Coleman can make to Massachusetts. He believes that Parole is good for “public welfare.”
This guy was a defense attorney before that. Of course he thinks letting assholes back into the general population is good for the public welfare. Was it good for Officer Gannon though? Because he was killed by an offender that Coleman believed was better off outside of jail for some reason. Good thing Charlie Baker, who is pretending to care about the plight of police officers, reappointed a clown like this in 2017. Just what we need in this state.
But after he was paroled in 2014 he was arrested three more times for, 1) driving a car without a license, 2) beating up and strangling the pregnant woman, 3) stabbing the guy who was on his way home from jail.
According to Fox 25 News’ Jacqui Heinrich, the judge responsible for letting him go each time was Gary Nickerson:

Who looks to be about a billion years old, give or take.
Just last week he offered to reduce the bail for a teacher accused of raping two children, from $25K to $10K.
Here’s my question – why was the stabbing charge dropped? I can understand the strangling of the girlfriend – she pled the fifth and was difficult to deal with for prosecutors. But the other charge being dropped by Nickerson is unexplained. As is the 2014 arrest for driving without a license. He was on probation at the time. When you get arrested and you’re on probation, you go back to jail. Those are the rules. Unless of course you have a judge who decides to intentionally keep you on the streets by dropping the charges.
Judge Nickerson and the parole board both have blood on their hands. Charlie Baker once again proved to be a disappointment, and the worst part is that whoever runs against him in 2018 will likely be even weaker on criminal justice. So despite having the strictest gun laws in the country, Massachusetts continues to be one of the most dangerous places for police officers to work. In Texas a shithead like Thomas Latanowich would’ve been caged like the animal he is a long, long time ago.
