This summer has been a busy one for Brockton’s finest, as there have been an uncanny amount of shootings, overdoses, prostitution arrests, children stabbing each other, drug-dealings from hotel rooms, weapons violations, road-rage incidents, and just your average every day run-of-the-mill cold-blooded murders.
In their continued vow to crack down on offenders, Brockton police have most recently launched “Operation clean-slate” which netted 28 arrests, of which Assistant District Attorney Kevin O’ Leary has referred to most of the alleged offenders as “career criminals”. One such criminal, 47-year-old Benjamin Neal, was ordered held on $50,000 bail after trying to sell crack cocaine to an undercover officer.
“This is crazy!” exclaimed Neal, “I want a drug program!”
Of course you do, Benji boy. Unfortunately, due to our court system which often seems flawed, over half of these 28 were released back onto the streets the very same day. A somewhat scary thought for many Brockton residents to accept.
On the flip side, in the very next town over, Bridgewater police are fighting some very different “battles”. Now let me say, that I personally know several officers on the force, and they are great people and work very very hard. Bridgewater, much like almost every other town, does have a heroin problem. That being said — Bridgewater ain’t no Brockton, and if you choose to follow one twitter page in your entire life, follow the Bridgewater Police Department twitter page IMMEDIATELY, it belongs on comedy central. For instance, sometimes in Bridgewater suspicious things happen to your pets:
Other times your kids won’t turn down that loud rap music!!
Then there are tattoo disagreements
Irresponsible, mooching children
More missing pets
Bridgewater town drunkards
Cats in trees
Cats in closets
Druken carseat salesmen
And smart aleck children who like to talk back
