Usually people get into public service because they’re selfless and want to aid others; people like Joe Andrade do it to mask the darkness within

A Cambridge, Massachusetts, firefighter is facing charges after allegedly assaulting a woman Tuesday night.
Joseph Andrade, 29, of Cambridge, was arraigned Wednesday in Cambridge District Court on two counts of assault and battery on a household or family member and one count of witness intimidation, according to the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office.
Bail was set at $1,500 cash and Andrade was ordered to stay away from and have no contact with the victim. His bail was then revoked due to another open case. He is scheduled to be back in court on April 19.”
OK – this one really gets my goat. Here you have a public servant, a man who is trained to run into burning buildings with no regard for his own life, for complete strangers; someone who is supposed to rescue kitty cats from trees and shovel out the fire hydrant in front of your Grandma’s house.
He was JUST sworn in as a firefighter last September.
Now, I’m not up to snuff on the prerequisites to become a firefighter. But something tells me that pending charges against you might be grounds for not having your application pushed through. To me, that says that this heavy-handed chudstuffer has racked up a slew of charges since his swearing in a mere 7 months ago. If that’s not a big red fucking fire alarm, I don’t know what is. We haven’t been able to find information on what the other pending charges are that caused his (piddly) bail to be revoked; if a Turtlerider out there has any info, we’re all ears.
He looks like your typical East Cambridge Portuguese kid, big shit eating grin and all. He needs a slap across the right cheek to even out his face a bit in the name of symmetry.
“The charges stem from an incident that occurred around 11:30 p.m. on Tuesday, when MIT police responded to a call from a university emergency phone on Main Street in Cambridge
Upon arrival, police were informed that the victim and Andrade had engaged in a verbal dispute in Andrade’s car. He allegedly began driving erratically, and the victim attempted to exit the vehicle when it was stopped at a red light. Andrade, however, held the door shut, trapping the victim.
When the victim said she was going to call police, Andrade allegedly pulled into a parking lot and physically assaulted the woman. She then exited the car and contacted police.”
He had this poor woman, who we’re assuming is his girlfriend and/or wife, trapped like a rat in a cage while he beat her. She tried to remove herself from the situation and only made it worse. I can’t imagine what must have been going through her mind at the time, and I feel awful for her. To make matters worse, when you’re a victim of domestic violence, especially when your significant other is some type of public servant, people tend not to believe you or chalk you up as “hysterical” or “overly dramatic.” I can tell you this was likely not the first time he put his hands on her, but I do hope it’s the last.
His “favorite quotes” reek of an insecure, mental midget of a man.
“I will be what I set out to be” – and what was that, Joey? A fat tub of guts in a strap T-shirt who drunkenly beats the shit out of his wife for overcooking the roast? A fucking disgrace is what you are, and what you will be and what you will continue to be. What I hope you don’t continue to be is a public servant. You don’t even deserve to be a gas jockey somewhere.
“I like intelligent women. When you go out, it shouldn’t be a staring contest.” Except when they get too mouthy for you, right? What a fucking choad this dude is.
Feel free to send Joe a message here and let him know what you think of his moral ineptitude. You can also call the Cambridge Acting Fire Chief, Gerard Mahoney at (617) 349-4900 or send him an email here to and let him know that the citizens of Cambridge aren’t safe with a woman beater like Joe Andrade on their roster.
