    Perhaps, "civilians" isn't really the best descriptive term for these people.


    They were such good boys. Never in any serious trouble. They were turning their lives around. Why did the po-leece have to treat our babies like this and talk so ugly about them?



    Mom rips cop paper over ‘scumbags’ label


    By Mike Underwood | Wednesday, October 24, 2007 | http://www.bostonherald.com

    A furious mother caught in the chaos of a Roxbury house party where three cops were injured has slammed a police union newspaper for branding her family and friends “animals†and “scumbags.â€


    Tanya Cabral, 35, said Pax Centurion, the Boston Police Patrolmen’s Association paper, was wrong to print the remarks because eight people charged after the Aug. 18 Eastman Street party have not been convicted of anything.

    In his editorial in the September/October issue, 25-year Boston police veteran Jim Carnell wrote: “Due to the violent actions of this crowd of scumbags, all available units from throughout the city were ordered to respond . . .†The story also referred to “200 animals who believe that they own the streets.â€

    “The name-calling is unreal,†said mother-of-two and city of Boston worker Cabral. “I’m waiting for a meeting with the commissioner and I’m bringing him that article.â€

    Carnell stands by his words. “It is too bad if she feels like that,†said Carnell of Cabral. The editor of Pax Centurion added: “We support the police version of events. (The article) was all taken from the (incident) report and from interviews with the guys who were there.â€

    Thomas J. Nee, president of the BPPA, supports Carnell.

    “It was a commentary based on an actual event. I don’t find anything in it egregious. I can understand her sensitivity, but I don’t accept it,†he said.

    Cops say they received numerous calls from neighbors fed up with noise from the party and visited the property four times. Police claim they were attacked when they went to shut it down, leaving three officers injured by flying beer bottles and fists.

    But revelers claim cops knocked a 1-year-old to the floor, sprayed Mace at a father who was cradling his 2-year-old son and left one man with a gash that required six stitches.

    The BPD internal affairs division is investigating five complaints filed by partygoers.

    You know, the way the media works today, the above could be referring to:
    - a one-year-old bottle of scotch
    - Mace sprayed in the general direction of a doorway, and ten feet on the other side of it, the dad stood cradling his son
    - a man with a previous injury that required sixteen stitches, six of which were reopened when he ignored repeated warnings by the police to get out of the way

    :roll: Scotch whisky must be aged at least three years. Primitive screwheads, the lot of you!

    I wonder how her neighbors would describe her?

    :lol: Well they were "scumbags" and "revelers", so I'm guessing they probably didn't notice or care about the quality of the liquor.

    NB: Clan MacGregor is foul stuff. Even if you're already drunk and mix it with something as strong as Coke, it'll make you gag if you smell it. Avoid at all costs!

    A good single malt should be aged atleast 12 years. Preferably 18. If your pockets are VERY deed, there are some extremely good 30 year single malts out there. My favorite though (when and IF I can get away with buying it) is 18 year Johnny Walker Blue. But at close to $175 a bottle I don't get to enjoy it often.

    Haven't you people ever heard of bourbon?

    It's made in Kentucky, so buying it helps our really pitiful balance of trade and it's far, far, far, far, far better than that scots cow piss you're talking about...

    Try some Woodford Reserve and you'll never go back to that weak-assed cologne crap!

    If you must drink foreign, drink Irish.

    But scotch?

    Maybe for paint remover. Not for drinking.

    Definitely not for drinking....!



    :drink:

    Scotch is good. My grandfather laid down a case of Macallan 25 year reserve about 30 years ago, so it's now over 50 years old. It's superb.

    I prefer 12-year Jameson, personally. Not a fan of the 18-year stuff.

    :p It's still 25 years old, unless those bottles are charred oak barrels.

    They're not.

    My point was that it's freakin' GOOD.

    Not arguing there. I've had some (but not nearly as much as I'd like) of the Macallan 25. It's great, but too pricey for me to buy a bottle of. I get by with the occasional glass. As far as cheap stuff goes, I like TGL 15, Aberlour a'bunadh, The Balvenie Doublewood (12), and Talisker 10. I don't do Islay.

    Take your wife on a Caribbean cruise. 8) The ships and/or the liquor stores down there have JWBlue for well under 100.
