you give him props for taking responsibility.

but you have no criticism of him, for being a wind-up repeating toy for, say, his entire career?   You've defending his joke for years now.

Another celebrated "honorable hero"..

Retired Massachusetts Cop Charged with Stealing $400,000 from Evidence Room

In 2014, Massachusetts Police Detective Kevin Burnham retired after 43 years on the job with the Springfield Police Department.

Local media celebrated him as a dedicated cop who could have retired ten years earlier, but chose to stay on out of pure love for his job.

Now it appears as if he stayed on solely for the purpose of stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from the department’s evidence room.

Burnham, who was the narcotics evidence officer, is accused of stealing nearly $400,000 from December 2009 until July 2014.

He was apparently living  a comfortable retirement with that money along with his monthly pension before he arraigned last month in court on several counts of larceny.

He probably would have continued stealing money had an investigation not have been launched into the missing money in the summer of 2014, which was when he announced his retirement and was honored with a party.

According to an July 25, 2014 Mass Live article:

Dozens of colleagues, friends and family gathered in the department’s squad room at about 11:30 a.m. for the traditional pizza and cake farewell.

The 65-year-old Burnham beamed as he moved about the room, shaking hands and hugging all he encountered. He laughed often as he swapped jokes and stories with well-wishers.

Burnham, at 65, could have retired 10 years ago. He opted, however, to stay on another 10 years. “I really enjoyed coming to work,” he said. “It’s going to be hard not to answer the bell tomorrow morning at 5 o’clock.”

But on January 11, 2016, Mass Live wrote the following:

Kevin Burnham, a decorated and now retired Springfield police detective, pleaded not guilty in Hampden Superior Court on Monday to several charges relating to nearly $400,000 missing from the Springfield Police Department’s evidence room.

It was a stunning fall for the once-beloved police department veteran, who retired as its senior officer in 2014 after 43 years on the job. At the time, he passed along badge No. 1 along with his longtime responsibilities in the evidence room, over which many officers said he virtually lorded for decades.

The first signs of trouble – at least publicly – came several months after Burnham’s retirement party at police headquarters, where several of his colleagues lauded him as a “great guy” with an infectious laugh.

Burnham had a system where he would take money out of envelopes seized from suspects, then replace that money with either counterfeit money that was seized in other cases or real money that was seized from other other cases.

Meanwhile, lawyers whose suspects were found not guilty would ask for their client’s money back and the department would tell them the money is “unaccounted for.”

The money would be repaid only after years of legal wrangling but it’s not clear from where the money came from.

“The Defendant has made repeated requests upon the Springfield Police Department for the return of his currency and has been told they have been unable to locate it; the Defendant has now been deprived of his property for almost two years,” a motion Bongiorni filed with the court read.

In both his clients’ cases, the city Law Department issued checks despite the missing status of the cash.

“They did the intelligent thing and paid the money,” Bongiorni said during an interview at the time.

The city offered no explanation to Bongiorni as to where the money might be, however. When asked if he had been unable to recover money seized as evidence on behalf of his clients in recent memory, Bongiorni, who has practiced criminal defense law for decades, responded:

“This has never happened to me.”

Burnham has pleaded not guilty and is out on bond after giving up his passport, his guns. Read his indictment here.

Evidently, there is no surveillance camera in the department’s evidence room.

Actually you are naive if you think President Obama would risk his own prestige and legacy by interfering in an investigation in which he has no dog in the fight....also he's not exactly fond of the Clintons...and its reportedly been said that Obama has already told Hillary she's on her own and he will not intervene on her behalf..although I don't know this for sure

This is what happens when you have blind devotion to a political "leader."  He already tried to interfere in the investigation by saying to the entire world in an interview that Hillary did nothing wrong.  Obviously an attempt to influence an ongoing FBI investigation.  He did the same thing with Lois Lerner. 

And LOL at "prestige and legacy."  Oh brother . . . .

Roll Eyes

He got drubbed, because he finished much lower than expectations (as opposed to outperforming expectations in Iowa), but I give him props for manning up and taking responsibility.

Coin tosses...Now this...

Politico reports the delegate count arising out of the New Hampshire vote.

From ABC:

In the overall race for delegates, Clinton has 394, thanks in large part to endorsements from superdelegates — party officials who can support the candidate of their choice.

Sanders has 42 delegates.

Yep.  She is going to glide to the nomination, unless she gets indicted, then it might be close, and Biden will jump in.

Clinton likely to leave NH with same number of delegates as Sanders
By Ben Kamisar
February 10, 2016

Hillary Clinton is expected to leave New Hampshire with just as many delegates as Bernie Sanders, even after he crushed her in Tuesday’s primary.

Sanders had won 13 delegates with his 20-point victory on Monday, and is expected to raise that total to 15 by the time all of the votes are counted.

Two of the state’s 24 delegates are currently unpledged, but will likely be awarded to Sanders once the results are finalized. That will raise the Sanders total to 15 delegates.

Clinton won 9 delegates in the primary, but came into the contest with the support of six superdelegates — state party insiders who are given the freedom to support which ever candidate they choose.

Superdelegate support is fluid, so it is possible that one of those delegates now committed to Clinton could switch before the national convention.

But as it stands, the superdelegate support gives Clinton a total of 15 New Hampshire delegates — the same as Sanders.

The Clinton campaign has mounted an aggressive effort to secure about 360 superdelegates across the country, according to the Associated Press. Sanders has a total of eight superdelegates.

Two of New Hampshire’s eight superdelegates are uncommitted: state party chairman Ray Buckley and state Sen. Martha Fuller Clark, according to the Associated Press.

Buckley was barred from picking a side until after the primary, while Fuller Clark told The Hill that she remains uncommitted.

“I wanted to ensure that we had a very open and fair process in New Hampshire and I don't t believe as an elected officer of the party that I should be choosing between two very fine Democrats who are running for office,” she said.

“For the time being, I continue to hold that position and will wait until closer to the convention to decide.”

Clinton's superdelegate supporters includes Gov. Maggie Hassan, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, and Rep. Annie Kuster.

She's also backed by Democratic National Committeemembers Joanne Dodwell, Billy Shaheen and Kathy Sullivan.
