‘Oxbow Incident’ comes to Chicopee
Recent actions by some city councilors in Chicopee look like an “Oxbow Incident,” where a group of self-righteous individuals bloated by their own self-importance and wounded pride, rush out and hang the wrong man. The resources they provide should be brought to bear towards resolving the murder of my niece.
Instead, they are apparently being distracted in this purpose, not by those officers genuinely frustrated by the difficulty in solving this crime, but instead by internal bickering in the police department over promotions within the police department. It is conduct very unbecoming of professionals.
