The Turtlegram and Gazette has hit a new all time low:
Recognize the cover boy? That would be convicted murderer and failed Fitchburg mayoral candidate Kevin Lynch.
He’s now the executive director of a non-profit called Ex-Prisoners and Prisoners Organizing for Community Advancement.
He was quoted in the Turtlegram’s article:
“No one’s running a CORI (background check) in drug dealing,” echoed Kevin Lynch, executive director of Ex-prisoners and Prisoners Organizing for Community Advancement. EPOCA, a nonprofit based in Worcester, helps people struggling to right their lives after prison. Mr. Lynch said the current laws, particularly laws surrounding criminal records, need major change.
“Someone will get a job … Then, six months later, they’ll run a (background check), and they’ll be let go,” he said. “People become despondent, and through that they fall back into criminal behaviors.”
So he’s mad that businesses run CORI checks and wants them eliminated. Probably because he hasn’t had a job since before he went away for his part in the murder of Andrew McDonough at his parent’s house on June 13, 1992. A crime that he readily admits he committed and plead guilty to:
“Three men accused in the clubbing and spearing death of Andrew S. McDonough last summer pleaded guilty in Suffolk Superior Court yesterday to manslaughter. Judge Robert Banks ordered Jason D. Clifford, 21, of Dorchester to serve 7 to 15 years, and Kevin Lynch, 23, of South Boston to serve 6 to 15 years in the state prison in Walpole; and Brian Lynch, 20, of South Boston to serve 20 years in the state prison in Concord.”
And yet the headline on the Turtlegram reads as follows:
Incarcerating people with addiction? Bitch you are a MURDERER. You will never, ever, ever shed that. Sure, you only did 7 years in prison because you snitched on your codefendants for a reduced sentence. But they were your golf clubs that were used to beat and impale poor Andrew McDonough at your house because you didn’t want to let him into your party. You initiated the murder. It was your idea. You fueled it. You watched a man die as a golf club was impaled through his skin and he screamed for help. And to this day you still blame Andrew McDonough for his own death because you claim that he was a “knee breaker.”
So yea, you can pretend like you were put in prison because you’re a drug addict. But we’re gonna call you exactly what you are – a MURDERER.
How dumb is the Turtlegram and Gazette for putting this laardvark as their cover boy? Hell, their own newspaper reported his arrest in 2011 for assaulting a cop and threatening to kill him – the same cop who Kevin had been stalking by sitting outside his house in the bushes for weeks:
Mr. Lynch, 41, of 48 Cedar St., Unit 2, is charged with threatening to commit a crime — murder; assault and battery on a police officer; assault and battery on ambulance personnel; and disorderly conduct. Sgt. Kerry C. Siomos alleges in his report that Mr. Lynch assaulted him about 8:45 p.m. at a car show outside of JR’s Pub on North Street, across the street from the fire station.
Sgt. Siomos said he walked outside to move his car about 20 minutes after he arrived at JR’s when Mr. Lynch and Mr. Gonzalez started yelling at him aggressively from the area of a car parked on North Street. He said he immediately recognized Mr. Lynch, “a man that has been stalking this officer for a long time who I consider very dangerous given my knowledge of his criminal past.” Sgt. Siomos said Mr. Lynch continued screaming at him and said, “You cops are all done. I’m going to get all of you.”
The officer approached Mr. Lynch as he continued to yell and flail his arms, his report says, and then Mr. Lynch “got right in my face.” Sgt. Siomos said Mr. Lynch had a deranged look on his face and threatened to kill Sgt. Siomos and his family. “I then told him to step back at which point he started to tense up and push his chest into me, so in fear for my safety I pushed (Mr. Lynch) off with a forearm strike,” according to the report.
When Mr. Lynch then took a “fighting boxer’s stance” toward the sergeant, Sgt. Siomos told him he was under arrest. ″(Mr. Lynch) continued to assault this officer, at which time I punched subject, taking him to the ground,” Sgt. Siomos’ report said.
Sgt. Siomos said he told Mr. Lynch to stay on the ground, but when he got up and went after Sgt. Siomos again, Firefighter P.J. Roy, who had been on call as an emergency medical technician at the fire station, put his arms around him to restrain him. Mr. Lynch then began striking him with his elbows to get away, according to police reports.
And considering his past, any claim that Kevin is going to kill someone should be taken seriously.
Keep in mind, that this stupid non-profit is advocating to keep criminals out of jail. Ya got that? In a state filled with asshole judges who don’t put criminals in jail, these nudniks believe there are TOO MANY people in jail, and not the other way around. They want to eliminate CORI checks so that employers can’t weed out the assholes, so that people like Kevin can get a job at your company, rob you blind, and then move onto the next one.
Oh, and they’re working with Sheriff Lew Evangelidis. A guy that Kevin has had some strong opinions about in the past:
Interesting that Kevin is the executive director of this non-profit. Which more than likely means he’s taking home a salary. EPOCA does have a decent amount of cash flow:
And their executive director in 2014 made around $50,000:
You can probably bet Kevin Lynch is making around this much too. Who needs a job when you can make that kind of money whining about how mean it is to send convicted criminals to prison? Looks like that “massive civil lawsuit” he keeps talking about never came to fruition.
You don’t wanna see what what Kevin gets like when he’s angry though. Like that time the City of Fitchburg made him shovel the walkway of his mother’s house where he lives rent free:
And instead of just owning up to his crimes Kevin blames the cops, good old boys, firefighters, courts, jails, and Turtleboy:
“Thrown in prison unjustly.” – Guy who voluntarily plead guilty to killing someone.
And the rest…..
Clearly this man is mentally stable and law abiding. Good thing the Turtlegram is legitimizing him with a front page story.
