Cop Down at MIT

Can we make a new rule for killers?

"Know your victims."

It may not help the victim, but it does help everybody else.

Update 12:15am: Word is the officer has died. I think it's safe to assume this is the first MIT police officer to be killed in the line of duty.

My condolences and sincere hopes this situation resolves itself without any other good person being hurt or killed.

Another Update: This is the part that always gets me choked up: "A Wilmington, Mass., police car carrying what appear to be family members arrived sirens blaring. A few Officers arriving in tears."

A couple of days ago I tweeted this: A nice ode to Boston, from one of the many who frolicked in The Hub. http://www.theatlantic.com/national/archive/2013/04/you-may-leave-boston-but-boston-never-leaves-you/275018/
