Breathalyzer, Police, Sobriety test

Mass. Court Ruling Bans Breathalyzer Results in Drunk Driving Cases

It’s a case that goes back at least as far as 2011. The Massachusetts State Police Office of Alcohol Testing is implicated in a scandal to hide faulty Breathalyzer equipment. Initial questions related to inconsistencies were blamed on operator error. But the problem didn’t go away and several local Massachusetts DA’s stopped accepting the results as evidence. And …

It’s a ‘Ma$$hole’ Invasion to GOTV for NH Democrats

Apparently, there aren’t enough out-0f-state college students at New Hampshire colleges to get out the vote for Democrats so they decided to ship them up from Massachusetts… and Rhode Island. They are so on board with Chris ‘RESIST’ Pappas that they even trademarked the name Chris PapBus… which seems a tad disturbing. This should go …

Stella Tremblay Already Proven Right – Sort of…

Democrats love to dither over context, so here’s a stick in your eye. Tremblay, who bless her heart refuses to back down despite being badgered by the left over her own personal concerns about US government sponsored domestic terrorism with regard to the Boston Marathon bombing, was–to some degree at least–correct.   Skip provided that tid-bit …

The Irony Alligator Rises To Bite Liz Warren In Her…um…’Law Practice.’

I’m having an Irony and hypocrisy overload.  Where to start?  Did you hear the one about Massachusetts Democrat Elizabeth Warren…? From Legal Insurrection Warren represented not just Travelers, but numerous other companies starting in the late 1990s working out of and using her Harvard Law School office in Cambridge, which she listed as her office …
