    Well done Revere for appointing a Chief Cafarelli.  A man with integrity, honesty and discipline.

    One of my Marine Corps Brothers for over 25 years: A COPs COP, a Marine for sure and he has not changed a bit. It’s great to see a guy who never forgot where he came from make it to the top. So many COPs retire on duty and forget why they wanted the job in the first place…he’s not one of them. From one COP to another: Well done, sir! I’m sure you’ll make all of us very proud.


  • KingCast sees embattled Revere Police Chief Terence Reardon take a powder.

    To tell you the truth, I didn’t get a bad read on this guy after two weeks of daily coverage of the Dan Talbot murder trial. I dunno, something tells me that he wasn’t calling the shots out there and his resignation letter (courtesy of the Daily Item) supports my contention. Remember Todd Randall and the Gatorade Bottle journal entry? I do. Time to check up on the Appeal.Whoa…. now the Revere Journal reports that he is backing down to the Captain position but not leaving…. which is odd. What is also odd is the treatment that former crossing guard Clifford Pisano received. Watch this space for documents and details.

  • They need it.

    There’s going to be some serious spotlight put on things in the next year, believe me on that: to see why this Ward 2 Councilor fled from my cameras this afternoon…. EPA Superfund? CERCLA? Quick cleanup on aisle three….. 50 feet below ground level….
