We're Gonna Kick Your Asses!
29 Apr 2002
police2_1_.jpg
Officer Friendly and his buddies in the BPD have a special surprise waiting for any wealthy, well-dressed, overfed, university-going "working class revolutionaries" who try anything dangerous--like stepping off of the sidewalk--in our historic city during the first week of May...

REMEMBER DANIEL FAULKNER!

And while you're at it, REMEMBER ARA AND NEFAC! (Because there won't be much left of them after May 5...)
And if...
29 Apr 2002
if anyone believes that this was actually placed by anyone with connections to the Boston PD, I have a bridge over the Big Dig to sell you. The author makes it clear that he/she is trying to spoof the police with the "anything dangerous, like step off the sidewalk" comment.

So please, don't follow this post with indignant ranting about how you can't believe anyone would post such a thing. It's there to make you do so and look foolish. Don't fall for it.
Nazi Provocation
30 Apr 2002
It is clear that this was authored by a member of one of the neo-nazi organizations active in Boston (National Alliance or World Church of the Creator). Notice the specific threat to NEFAC and ARA... two groups that kicked much nazi ass in York, PA, last January. Guess the boneheads are still sore. Probably an idle threat, but all the same, keep your eyes peeled for the fash this week while you are visiting Boston for the FDP, and be sure to smash 'em where you see 'em (afterall, this isn't exactly the city of brotherly love!).
interne threats...*yawn*
30 Apr 2002
i used to work in philly ara and can't tell you how many empty threats we recieved from nazis. it's obvious that the nazis can't hold their own on the streets so the have to try to scare peopel up over the internet....grow up guys, i used to do that when i was 15
Whatever You Pussies Say
01 May 2002
Police throughout the Northeast have been watching you little shits ever since Quebec, waiting for our opportunity to strike. Washington's MPD thought they'd have you all in one place in September, but it looks like Daniel Faulkner's Irish brothers here in Boston will get to finish you off instead.

I hope you children bring your little shields and batons, because we're certainly bringing our (the adult models, that is), and we intend to use them. Hoo-yah!

Hugs and kisses,

Officer Friendly

"Historic city"
01 May 2002
The major historic events in Boston were revolutionary ones. And that cop is fat.
Faulkner an asassin-got what he deserved
02 May 2002
Faulkner was sent to assasinate Mumia. Mumia walked in on this cop beating the shit out of his brother, was supposed to see the beating, go for his gun, be beaten to the draw and killed. Instead a bystander saw it all and opened fire. Faulkner, mortally wounded, tried to finish his original mission by shooting Mumia(it did not kill him) instead of the opposing shooter. Since Mumia was a prominant radio journalist exposing the brutality of the Philly cops, they had decided to kill him.
With the assasination a failure, the pigs fell back to plan B-frame Mumia and execute him. Witnesses for the defense were threatened withj having their lives ruined, and prostitues and others who were in the area were told they could either lie and be allowed to work unmolested or tell the truth and go to prison. In one hearing recently a defense witness was arrested on the stand.
The real proof is this: If Mumia was guilty, the government would dot their i's cross their t's nad make SURE he got a "fair trial" so the community would believe them and no appelate court would reverse them. Instead, the lies, cheating, and threatened witnesses are overwhelming proof that Mumia is innocent, and the government is guilty.
... only since Quebec?
02 May 2002
You've only been watching us since Quebec? To think of all those years we managed to organize around you without drawing any attention to ourselves. Not very smart, are you. Such professionals. Ha, ha.
Law Enforcment
04 May 2002
As if it's not already obvious, the so-called "Blue Block" is simply trying to divide & conquer citizens from practicing their Constitutional rights.

There are NAZIs in almost all political groups. Infiltration is just a fact of life.

But unlike the Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Giuliani Gestapos, the Boston Police are among the most effective and honest in the nation.

Of course, the unlawful "Homeland Security" NAZIs and their global paymasters are attempting to make Boston more fascistic, but they are failing because behind Boston's puritanical and whimpy politically correct facade, there's a radical & revolutionary tradition in this town that the NAZI imports (eg: ROTC robots & NYC "elites") can't stop.

Lynch Lynch for lunch.

interesting discussion
07 May 2002
Unlike unfufilled nazi/cop threats, there actually is some post FDP discussion that is interesting.
