This is long overdue. It may not be the criminal responsibility they deserve but it will be, at least, some small accountability for what they did. Stoughton is a profoundly troubled and corrupt department. They need a DOJ investigation.

Replace Stoughton with any other city in any state and you would still be right.

The fuck?!? I hope all these guys rot in jail.

And sadly, becoming pregnant is an often deadly thing when someone is in a relationship that has domestic violence:

Homicide leading cause of death for pregnant women in U.S.

> October 21, 2022 – Women in the U.S. who are pregnant or who have recently given birth are more likely to be murdered than to die from obstetric causes—and these homicides are linked to a deadly mix of intimate partner violence and firearms, according to researchers from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

Most likely they won't go to jail, unfortunately. From what I understand, it's very difficult to prosecute rape without a statement from the victim, even if there's evidence that there was sexual contact when the victim was a minor. It sounds like they're trying to do as much as they can within the current legal restrictions.

Groomed her, statutory rape, and passed her around like a blunt at a 1980's suburban beer bash.

One of the cops was seen at her place the day before she was “suicided”

lmao right, just the other day i was walking down the street and whoops! i did a statutory rape. my bad, no biggie though. we all have flaws.


Aside from your bullshit deflection, funny how these "flaws" keep showing up in certain groups of people, repeatedly. Just a coincidence, I'm sure.

I look forward to nothing coming of this because people are afraid to convict police and the rest of the state justice system is cowardly.

I will be interested to see how this new commission goes.

Stoughton cops are fucking pigs. I grew up there, and during the pandemic they were out and about at bars and shit maskless and unvaxxed just spreading that shit and getting people killed.

Will the settlement be paid by tax dollars?

your tax dollars for settlements, civil forfeiture loot for dunks and US military surplus.

Was Stoughton also where the cop “froze to death” in a snowstorm last winter?

Did the guys from barstool crack another Case on their podcast. They literally solved a cold case murder on season one and this is the podcast case for season 2….

Not just Stoughton. A former teacher who groomed a teen student is on a local police force.
