Threats launched at Journal by defenders of convicted-murderer Richard Boucher

KINGSTON- Kingston Police are investigating threats made to KingstonJournal.com-staffer Bradford Randall after the Journal published a story last week detailing a 2009 encounter with Richard Boucher, the perpetrator of a 2010 double shooting in North Plymouth that killed one and left another paralyzed.

kingstonpoliceThe threats towards Randall came yesterday via comments posted to the Journal’s January 26th feature story “MY BRUSH WITH BOUCHER: KINGSTON’S CONVICTED MURDERER” from usernames like “anybodys killa” and “Terrah.”

One comment, posted directly to a URL on KingstonJournal.com linking to a picture of Randall, was made under the username “stop snitching.”

A line from the comment reads “pussys like you won’t last.”

The Journal has decided to publish five comments (seen below), along with e-mail and IP addresses, that were submitted to the Journal over a 28-hour period between Wednesday afternoon and yesterday evening.

The comments, made from several different IP addresses, also defend Boucher.

“ASK ANYONE WHO REALLY KNEW RICCY..HE ISNT AND WILL NEVER BE A DANGER TO ANYONE,” one comment reads.

“I take threats to my family very seriously,” Randall’s father, former-Kingston selectman Dennis Randall told a reporter from The Kingston Reporter on Friday afternoon in the Town House. “This is censorship at gunpoint.”

On Wednesday, Boucher was sentenced to life in prison for the murder of James Tigges, a father of three, and the attempted murder of Jackson Duncan after a May 27, 2010 dispute over a beer erupted into gunfire.

Last week, Randall called for the arrest of the subject who provided Boucher the murder weapon writing, “If we truly want to stop these horrific acts of violence from turning our streets into war zones we must hunt down those who distribute these weapons illegally just as aggressively as we hunt down murders on the run.”

Randall, 25, has been a written-word advocate for tighter gun-control legislation since authoring an editorial after the mass-shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School entitled “Something Needs to Change.”

Plymouth Police have also been contacted regarding yesterday’s comments as a Kingston Police Department investigation continues.

    I don’t know about everyone else but I think we’re all horrified by this Brad. Keep doing what you’re doing, you have a right to share your opinion even if we disagree with it. I love reading your writing and I love what the Journal stands for…stay strong.

  3. stand up 2 violence says:

    brad is right, they should find the person who gave him the gun…and as far as these commenters…they will be going where it’s hot. thanks for telling people this is going on. people should kno

  4. OurTownOurFuture says:

    What gives these kids the right to threaten a reporter? They really don’t understand what they are doing do they :/ Biggus. Don’t weep for our future. Fight for it. This is our town and our future and this newspaper and this reporter are part of it.

  5. Festivus says:

    C’mon. I’m going to give these, whatever, a break here and make believe that they are not so stupid that they really want to follow Ricky to the joint where, based on their comments, they, like Ricky, will, in all likelihood, become the “wife” of some old lifer.

    Remember it Mass. and here there is no death penalty so they give Murder One Cons life without parole. Now here’s poor Ricky’s problem, as has been directly relayed to me.

    “Hey I’m doing life without parole, how you gonna punish me.” So, on the inside, money ain’t all that and Ricky gonna find himself learning the rules of such popular games as hall tag and the blanket game. So instead of sending ol’ Ricky money on the inside you best offer him so prayers, cause right now he ain’t got one.

  6. GlowGolf says:

    Yeah. Figure they probably skipped the high school class about IP address tracking.
