Reckless Rhetoric? The Boston patrolmen’s union is condemning Suffolk DA Rachael Rollins’ “reckless” rhetoric after she called cops “murderers” in a tweet. Rollins posted “we are being murdered at will by the police & their proxy” is “dangerous, divisive, and wholly unwarranted.” Larry Calderone of the Boston Police Patrolmen's Association joins Dan.
