    Wow, I can't help but laugh. If they have terrorized the downeast community to that extent I would believe that their records would roll out the door, and we may have seen them on the news more. Maybe you should read their charges; know what actually went on then comment! Praying for them all!

    Inferior, and substandard work done by those investigating the alleged suspects in this particular incident. Arrests were made too quickly and without probable cause.

    They are not saints the are nothing but common thugs. All they do is terorize the good people of Gloucester and down east. We are so tired of being scared to walk outside in fear of these boys. The tourment has been going on for years to the point that people have sold their homes and moved from the area do to theses boys being so mean to them. We are tired of it. Put them in jail and leave them there.

    When you say they are not saints or martyns, remember neither are you nor anyone else in this world. You have no clue what went on that night so who are you to say what they do and do not deserve?

    These boys should stay in jail.I would not bail them out.How else are they ever going to learn a lesson, that they cannot bully everbody?Come on people!, they are not saints or martyrs,you people act like they are the victims.How about some justice for the folks who are being attacked?They have to be punished, or they will go through life thinking its ok to beat up anyone they see fit.

    My point is that these boys have always tourmented the down east area for many years. They have been arrested many times for many charges. When will the tourment stop? Can the law abidding people of Gloucester please get some relief from these crimanals? We need help can we please get it?

    Wow people realy do believe anything they read, for the record ....this was a fight between 2 people, Chris and Joe saved that guys life by stopping the fight, I was there. how is it possible that all these people are charged with the same thing. and the report in the paper doesnt matchup with the police report. theres no way they will catch these charges sory to let you all down

    Again some people just soon keep their comments to themselves. Unless you were there and or fully understand the charges and what went down that night you can't really point your finger at anyone! Still praying for the families.

    I want to know how many times theese boys are going to be arested for all the things they before something is done to stop them. It doesn't matter if theese charges are completly true or not. They all have terrorized the down east area for years. They all think they are above the law and nothing will happen to them.
