    I taught school at Tinkham. The DYS staff were well trained, compassionate and professional, I respected them and I loved working with them. What I don’t understand is how this attack could even happen – most of the spaces are on video surveillance, and there are innumerable procedures to prevent this sort of thing. Someone slipped up, if this boy could attack a man for four or five minutes, banging, yelling, and no one noticed, no other staff? My most sincere condolences to the family of the deceased.

    I don’t know where you guys are getting information from but the kid lost his mom years ago. She wasn’t a crack head she was a great mother. She never touched any drugs and was not on the streets. They were well feed and loved very much. She did everything for her kids. The reason why this kid is acting up from a young age is because he lost his mom. From that point on he turned his life into violence. My source? I knew his mom and his family. I even babysitted him and his siblings more than 10 years ago. You people on the internet love judging and are quick to jump to conclusions when in reality you have no idea what’s going on . Do I think it’s an excuse for killing this man ? NO. This man did not deserve to die at the hands of this boy. There was no reason for him to do this. But this is the sad reality of kids growing up without a mom and the lack of help kids like him get from the system. They turn into gangs that Springfield have plenty of left and right. The system does not care for kids like him and look what he has done. This could have been prevented ! I am no way shape or form sticking up for this kid . This man is gone at the rage of him. He did not deserve this and my heart goes out to his family. I know for sure he was probably hoping he can help the broken young boy.

      This kid is,was and will remain a monster if you’re willing to kill at 16 what will you do at 20 or 30. Since you know the family, how many of his siblings are incarcerated?

      Too bad that you or his familia didn’t step in to help him.
      Just because he had a rough life that does not give him the right to destroy the lives of others.
      Is this typical for your latins to throw him on the state and in some twisted way try and justify murder?

    When I was in school all the kids that were actively high on drugs, dealt drugs, hit other kids, and engaged in criminal behavior were never disciplined. They were allowed to stay in class and continue their behavior as of course some excuse was made for them. If you were late to class or did something minor you were disciplined fully. This story reminds me of those times. We’re too soft on people in this state.

    1.) The lying liberal media.
    2.) Self serving politicians, and their appointed stooges.
    3.) So called educators that teach “victimization” as an excuse for poor behavior and performance.
    4.) The legal system which protects criminals and lets victims suffer w no recourse.
    5.) Affirmative Action – placing unqualified POC in positions of great power.
    6.) Anti- White racism- blaming the ills of society on White men.
    7.) Narcistic Mentally ill haters of all things American.

    Turtleboy you left a lot of meat on the bone. Phil Chism murdered his teacher on camera almost. Then was sent to DYS who is not even CLOSE to being STAFFED or PAID enough to deal with people like him and he ATTACKED another female in DYS almost killing the woman. This is a monumental part of the story!

    Guy was probably a nice guy and trying to actually maybe make a change in the black community, It’s actually pretty sad. The fact the media is passing on this story is shameful. This Guy was probably trying to be a mentor, maybe a positive black male figure in some of these kids lives, Murdered while doing it. Crickets. Yet Junky wacko George Floyd gets a statue because a white guy did it. Shameful.

    With perhaps thousands of Lil’ Homicides like this in our society it certainly poses a real dilemma.
    How are we to deal with them. In an effort to treat them in a humane way? We put productive members of society in harms way.Some of them can not be rehabilitated. So are we to sacrifice other human beings in the course of our efforts. Their brains are already programmed . Their pathology is set. And they are nothing but timebombs. We have to realize that by this age they are beyond help. Video games and Chinese takeout are truly not the answer. We have to protect society. Despite what AOC would suggest. Many of them permanently belong in jail.

      July 29, 2021 at 6:05 pm

      Right, AOC wants to put an end to our carceral society.
      “Prisons and jails are just traps for black and brown people” and she thinks they should be done away with.
      Where does she think that we should put all these violent animals?
      She is the most insane fucking cunt ever. I don’t think she has a brain to think about what she says.
      We truly need to have more mental institutions and prisons. Or our society is going down the tubes fast.

    I can’t wait to see heads roll over this. Ah, never mind because it will never happen. If this were a private treatment facility, the state run media would be camped outside the homes of every manager on the payroll.

    I worked in DYS facilities. Some programs have males up to age 20, called youthful offenders, all of them are violent offenders or child molesters. HUNDREDS of DYS line staff had to go out and retire on disability due to the beatings they take weekly. Fucking disgrace,. Video games, 55 inch flat screen tv’s, cookouts, Xmas parties etc.

      I was a youth at a group home. This was in 1999-2000 the place I was at, for a year and a half or so wasn’t like this. It was run pretty good. I actually feel bad about how I treated staff there. I was 12 at the time and I had (have) incredibly bad anxiety. I didnt know how to manage it and this place was a miracle for me. I was the youngest to go in this program. It was for teenagers more so. It still did what it was meant for. I wish I could hug everyone who worked there just one more time and tell them thank you. I truly changed so much but I wasnt over the hill yet when I left but I certainly got so much stronger from being there.

    If I was a child of Mr. Hillman, I would tell the judge at the sentencing hearing that he better lock the little turd up until the day I die, because the day he is released, there is nowhere this little turd will be able to hide !
    Lock me up for contempt.
    But I would assure the Judge that unless he wants a death sentence handed down, he’d best keep the little turd locked up.

    Since when has the state of Massachusetts, with its “DYS” and all its other “programs” ever really succeeded with any child?

    I used to work for that system and I’ve never seen any child improve. Not one just! They just get worse. The only thing that ever improves are the fat bank accounts of the hacks who run these “programs…” and I hope they rot in he’ll for all the death and dysfunction THEY create with their inept selfish practices.

      Not every kid/teen is a lost cause. Sometimes we really need help because we are very lost and ‘sick’. I will say the condos which a person is “sick” with probably does effect the outcome or progress they make but as a person in a group home years ago I turned out okay. My stay there mattered and it helped me.

    This a direct result of each and every person who has ever voted, or votes for Democrats.
    It is a FACT that all kids like this will be either dead relatively young, and if still alive, they will be in prison, unless the likes of Rachael Rollins continue being in charge.

    This is hard science. By the time a kid is 16, it’s like trying to save a 1997 Ford Contour with a completely rotted out floorboard and a blown engine. It is a futile attempt.

      I just checked. You can get a rebuild kit for this engine 2.0 l zetec I4 on EBay for $469. Nice car. The floorboards depends on how much rot.

      People cannot be rebuilt with eBay parts I guess.
