The Boston Globe: Widow Of Slain Auburn Officer Thanks Supporters

  • "In an emotional tribute at Tarentino’s funeral, his sisters stood at the lectern at St. Joseph’s Church along with his widow, Tricia, to whom he was married to for 20 years. He and Tricia had three sons."

The Boston Globe: Officer In Scuffle Faced Prior Allegations Of Excessive Force

  • "The off-duty officer captured on video roughing up a pedestrian in the Back Bay on Tuesday has twice before been investigated on allegations that he used excessive force, according to Boston police department records."

NPR: Elizabeth Warren's Unconventional Messaging

  • "One of the most talked about politicians this election year is a woman who is not even on the ballot — Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts. As her name is being thrown around as a possible VP pick for Hillary Clinton, there's an argument to be made that Warren doesn't even need the job. Plenty of her colleagues say she already exerts enormous influence from her perch in the Senate."

The Boston Globe: In Search Of Bill Weld’s Real Motive

  • "In some swing states, it could well siphon potential votes from Trump and thus possibly tip the state to Hillary Clinton. That is, to Weld’s Nixon-impeachment-era colleague on the staff of the House Judiciary Committee — and the wife of the man who nominated him for an ambassadorship. Don’t expect Weld to acknowledge such a motive; doing so would defeat the purpose of the enterprise. But it’s just the sort of double bank shot he loves."
