If you're a cop and busted for DUI under any circumstances, you should be executed.

Just a few (more) bad apples.

I'm a little shocked that these incidents reached the public.

The thinking appears to be: cops / law, but only until the political ramifications endanger cops higher up

FTA -  Word of the arraignment was delayed by court officials, preventing reporters from attending. A court official later apologized, claiming it was unintentional. Prosecutors asked for $2,000 bail, but Judge Benjamin Barnes released D'Amato on his own recognizance, ordering him not to drive.

Nothing to see here citizen...move along

D'Amato was driving a 2013 Toyota Corolla south on Route 1 in Revere early yesterday when he hit a cruiser parked behind a 2002 Honda Accord, a state police spokesman said. Trooper John Phonesavanh was in his cruiser with his blue lights on writing a ticket for a 29-year-old Chelsea man. His cruiser careened into the Honda. Both troopers and the civilian driver were taken to Massachusetts General Hospital.

Um, more like the Toyota hit the cop car, then the cop car hit the Honda. I suck at writing, but I'm better than these tards.

Revere is (one of) the Tyson Zone towns of Massachusetts.  Nothing you do will surprise anyone, including being a crack smoking state cop who drunkenly hits another cop with his car after midnight.
If you told me a nun base-jumped from a tall building onto the top of a liquor store, cut a hole in the roof, repelled down into the store and drank every ounce of Natural Light in that building and passed out in her own vomit, I'd be shocked...until you said Revere...in which case I'd ask you how many kegs she got and how much cocaine they found on her.

fireclown: I'm a little shocked that these incidents reached the public.

The cases that reach the public fall into two categories:

1. Injury to members of the public or severe damage to public property, like this case. In another recent accident, south of Boston, a drunk cop hit a car head on and killed a woman. Responding officers tried to cover up but the hospital did a blood test.

2. Making local cops work too hard. That was last year. State trooper got into a fight with his mistress. Somebody called the cops. They didn't know the drunk, violent guy was a state trooper. He fled in his car and made them chase him. By the time they caught up they were too angry to care he was a cop.

A few years ago Revere police were out drinking behind the high school late at night. A gang member showed up. A drunk officer picked a fight with him. Gang member called a friend with a gun. The drunk officer was shot and died. Another got scared and ran away and suffered at least attempted discipline not to mention loss of reputation.

The police chief (or was it new police chief?) admitted the department had some work to do cleaning itself up.

The Tyson Zone originated in a mailbag column from Bill Simmons/sportsguy in 2007, by a reader named Brendan Quinn:

The Tyson Zone:
"I think Ron Artest has entered rarified air now. He's officially a person who, if a friend said, "Did you hear that (fill in celebrity's name) just (fill in the insane behavior: urinated on a police officer, began breeding unicorns, etc.)?", I would have no problem believing it was true. I think this space is occupied by Mike Tyson, Michael Jackson, Courtney Love, and the late, great ODB. Can you think of any others?"
-- Brendan Quinn, Philadelphia, PA


SG: First of all, fantastic theory. I think we should call this "The Tyson Zone." Others who qualify: Dennis Rodman; Omarosa; R. Kelly; Landon from "The Real World"; Najeh Davenport; Suge Knight; Flava Flav; Brigette Nielsen; anyone in G Unit; Billy Joel; Andy Dick; Lindsay Lohan's Dad; Anna Nicole Smith; Margot Kidder; Tara Reid; Lil John; Gary Busey; Ricky Williams; any pregnant female; the late Bison Dele; Liza Minnelli; Paris Hilton; and Henry Winkler.



Though not a celebrity, I believe the entire town of Revere qualifies

Everything you posted about Revere is truthfact.  What a farking ridiculous place.  I kind of hope they get the casino just so we can keep that crap contained in Revere, where it might actually even be an improvement.

Though Everett really isn't much better and is basically becoming an extension of the Revere Tyson Zone.

That's right!  The shooter was a gang member of the Bloods.  His name?  Robert Iacoviello.  A "diminutive" white member of the Bloods.  Totally Tyson zone.

And if I was a public defender I would use the chief's words to defend my citizen client who was locked up for DUI.

You have to fark up big to get arrested as a state police officer in any state; like this accident with the cop car, had he hit a light post or the guard rail, it likely could have been hidden. They get off on DUI's and other minor things often. Even their friends do, I've seen it first hand. Multiply that 9 arrests quoted by 50 and you'd have a more accurate number. Not that I have a problem with it, just wish I had a get out of jail card for small mistakes.

Back in the 80's I worked for an alarm company that handled CVS pharmacies, including one in Revere.  One night there was a smash-and grab which we detected, so we shipped the cops.  Needless to say the burglars were long gone by the time Revere's Funniest hit the scene, so the cops took advantage of the opportunity and proceeded to loot the place, filling the trunks of their cruisers.  What they didn't realize is that we had microphones in the store and recorded the whole thing.

I needn't tell you that the officers involved never saw any punishment, in fact one who decided to do the right thing was made a pariah by the others.
