Outstanding journalism. Bravo.

MUST READ. Please read it — especially if you are in Alton or have an Alton contacts.

As I am reading this I started thinking “I have never seen this level of investigative reporting in the Sun“. Made me look at the byline. Bingo. ‘The Boston Globe‘. You could just tell. I appreciate good writing and diligent research. I was so impressed that I contacted the lead reporter to offer her my sincere congratulations.

Some very disturbing elements in the story. ‘They’, the two victims, are no the demi-saints they were portrayed to be by some in Alton. They had issues; serious issues — legal, financial and ethical.

The irony of their sign warning government agents from entering their property is sublime. I guess our wonderful State Troopers and local Police, quite rightly, ignored their ‘threat’.

I had a quick check of the local Facebook ‘channels’. NO mention of this article. Made me smile. I could be wrong, but I think that some posts have even been taken down.

I never knew these folks and it would appear I didn’t miss much. As I have also made clear my main concern and thoughts are with the poor 11-year old. As the State, quite rightly, is beginning to realize, 11-year old is way too young to understand all the ramifications of what has transpired.

I have asked it before, and I will ask it again: “how did he get his hands on a loaded gun?

Something else that crossed my mind today: “was he licensed to practice in New Hampshire?” I tried to look it up just now but did not have much luck.

Well, this article has at least given us a better insight as to the background and demeanor of this family.

I am so glad that ‘The Boston Globe’ invested in this article and assigned to gifted reporters to cover it. This is what I call GREAT NEWS.
