    Methadone.Seems to be involved in a lot of crimes lately but it’s ok because it is a “legal” drug.

        I can agree with that 100%,  if not a short rope on a tall tree branch,  wait until he gets in the grey bar motel, even in there theres alot of bad boys that dont think much of scum like this, they have a wife and children on the outside to.

          Haven’t you heard ? Everyone in there is framed and innocent and- FYI- inmates don’t have their own justice system “in there”  They walk the narrow straight line so they can get out when there supposed to or earlier for good time–they don’t exact vengeance on other criminals, no matter the crime. Lest they add a lot of time on their own sentence’s and make the stay there harder for themselves. Folks who think that scum like this are put into a deep dark abyss and beat up , raped , starved  etc by other inmates are profoundly mistaken..They are more likely playing cribbage, ping pong, pool, watching movies, spending time playing in the gym etc-nice clean linen on the beds –3 hardy squares a day, pretty much a leisurely life..the old days of actually paying for your crimes has changed dramatically–and the life behind bars is not at all what most in society thinks it is.

            I guess you have never been on the inside, I did 8 years in a maximum security prison, non of us were framed or innocent, we were all guilty and belonged right where we were, some of us learned from our mistakes and got out, some didn’t. alot of the people in there were never going to see the outside of the wall, the lifers, they would do the payback, nothing to loose, alot of them had wives and children on the outside, they don’t like people who hurt women or children either, I spent some time with a man who put his wife thru a wood chipper, He killed her first. this may sound crazy but he was a nice enough guy to talk to but you didn’t want to have him mad at you, I watched this man rip a guys eyeball right out of his head, he had nothing to loose, was never coming out, I saw some real bad things go on while I was there, we did get treated well.  Times have changed ,the justice system seems to go for pleas and probation or time served, this boy will probably go into a minium,medium security prison , kept in protective custody away from the general population, be out for time served, I hope not.

            I commend you for doing your time and learning that there is a better way to go thru life–I actually do know quite a bit about the inside–but i should have stressed  minimum security (where this lowlife will prob be) At a max penitentiary some prisoners have as you stated “nothing to lose” cause they are there for the rest of their miserable lives and will never see the light of day- for this is the path they were thrown onto or chose for themselves…in any case I know that most in min security don’t really care what the other guy did to get there–they only want to slide thru and get out without extending the time they already have to do–and by being vigilantes they are not going to do this–and they def don’t want to go to a max sys where as you stated there are some real badazz’s.

        Totally agree.

    • He is no victim, but he does need help. Locking him up, throwing away the key and forgetting about him for a decade or more will only result in a more hardened criminal being released back into society. If we only address the punishment of criminals and not their psychology, we will forever be fighting a losing battle against those who have no fear of consequence.

        He will only accept help if he truly wants to change. You can place all the world in front of him, but that  doesn’t  accomplish a thing but money spent. We have been providing prisoner rehabilitation for many years, but only a small minority do anything with it. Capitol punishment worked out of fear. There is no more fear amongst the bad guys.

          exactly cmy6 well said–and another good reason for the victims in their homes to carry and use firearms when threatened-each scumbag  with his/her brains blown out is 1 less for the world to worry about tomorrow-and a quick and cheap rehabilitation.

    The methadone clinics are the bread and butter for penquis .(formorly project ride).  I would like to see DHHS stop paying for penquis to transport them to methadone clinics. let them get there the best way they can and also they should pay for the clinics out of their own pockets.

    • Yet they’ll cut the benefits for the most needy, elderly patients in the state. It makes no sense to me.

    • Briney

      Methadone treatments for people hooked on heroin and other drugs, are supposed to assist druggies in detoxification. Or, kicking the habit. It helps people cope with withdrawal from cocaine and other drugs, pleasantly reducing the accompanying agony.

      Why we should support people whose reckless disregard for their health and those around them is a little ridiculous.  We are maintaining treatment centers for druggies, who get the “lifter” or pain reducer.  But it doesn’t stop there. With a shot of Methadone, druggies can indulge in their snorting or needle jabbing, knowing that a free shot of Methadone will ease the pain when the “Coke” wears off and reality raises its ugly and painful head.

      The best way to cut smoking, drinking and drugs is simply – Cold Turkey.  It’s tough.  Costs nothing and is sheer misery.   But it works. 

      Why are we helping druggies to continue their costly and dehumanizing habit?  Methadone is a crutch. 

      •  Methadone is an opiate and it is addictive.  The dose that they receive keeps them from getting sick but where the clinics fail is they do not decrease the doses to wean the addicts, they keep feeding it to them.

          The more they have on the roster getting the drug, the more money the clinic gets.

  • Charged with aggrivated assault!?? more like attempted murder!!! perfect example right there.

      I was thinking the same thing Chelsey. Why doesnt the DA send a message to these women abusers that their actions will NOT be tolerated.  They used a tire iron on her.  Any one of those blows to the head could have ended her life.  Attempted Murder would keep this SOB in jail where he belongs before he does it again to someone else and succeeds in killing someone.

    who cashes a student loan check and keeps 6000 around in a trailer park? that doesn’t seem normal

    • PaulNotBunyan

      Maybe somebody who doesn’t have a bank account. A lot of banks and credit unions won’t open savings accounts for people who don’t pass the checking account screening process. That’s very wrong and the regulators don’t care at all.

        Can you help me out here Paul. What is the checking account screening process that will not allow one to open a savings account? Seems like may be trying the wrong bank.

        • Anonymous

           they run your name through a system and if you’ve had a bank account that you overdrew and it was charged off then usually you can’t get another one, even at a different bank, it all gets reported to that system (and no, I can’t think of the name of it right now)

         Most banks won’t let you cash a check unless you have an account with them.

        • PaulNotBunyan

          At least they have to cash checks that are drawn on their accounts. I took a 50 mile bus ride when I was young to cash an insurance company check. I had to argue a bit because they wanted me to open a savings account and wait a few days before I could get the funds. They finally agreed to call the insurance company for confirmation it was not a forgery. It wasn’t huge but it was too big to cash at any supermarkets.

    50,000!? if this guy has 50,000 bail why did the group of attackers in Howland only get 10,000 each, and almost killed 2 men? This states Judicial system is messed up. Yes this story is very sad.

    $50,000 bail!? I can’t believe this guy got 50,000 bail and the group of guys in Howland only got 10,000 each, and they pretty near killed 2 men! Yep this story is very sad, and glad he is doing time but this states Judicial system is messed up.

    • The difference is, this case is a violent home invasion and robbery at a residence with young children. The case in Howland is no doubt just a fight taken too far.

    The story says she had that money but doesn’t say if the robbers got it. I hope they didn’t.

  • He is probably acquainted with a majority of the citizens of Medway at the very least. Your excessive generalization is unwarranted. There are many decent people in those communities.

    You’re basically calling an entire family a bunch of scumbags based the actions of one person. How can you suggest that his elderly great-grandparents are scum and maintain any credibility whatsoever?

    After all, you no doubt are aquainted with many people in your community, and I’d wager your judgemental impertinence hasn’t caused every person you know to be a complete scumbag.

    • Anonymous

      Contrary to TiredofTaxes23’s opinion; Medway is a very tight and caring community and this “Medway” citizen is a sort of ‘transplant’ who has for most of his short life resided outside of the Medway area – hence the reason he knows of this woman in Greenbush….don’t burn the village because you think you have discovered a ‘witch’…….Generalizations and assumptions are always a dangerous social threat….

    Those on methadone will consistently claim that the drug “does nothing” for them. If it “does nothing,” why are they going to such lengths to get it? Even that guy who drank the puke or whatever – remember that? Gross.

    Walmart recently started carrying “personal defense shotguns”..One is a Stevens/Savage pistle grip model 12 gauge pump , black synthetic stock with 181/2 inch barrel for 199.00..Another is the same minus the pistle grip..179.00….Leave it to walmart to come up with a simple cheap solution…Can’t keep either in stock since we started carrying them..Also carrying Military Grade Buckshot as well as PDX Personal Defense rounds that have a slug surrounded by buckshot..Folks are buying them like crazy for this very reason..That is the solution for these scum…The unmistakable sound of a pump shotgun chambering a round usually makes the perp wet his pants because he knows he is about to die…Once a few of these scum have to have their brains scooped into a baggie you will see this stuff stop…And as fast as folks are buying them it won’t be long…

    It’s about damn time this self righteous want to be gang banger should have been locked away a long time ago! He has gotten away with so many other crimes that were very serious….Anyone who thinks this menace 2 society’s bail should be lower because the Howland kid’s bails were lower needs to know that Police have been after this kid for a long time and he has gone away with a lot for a long time through……He done its and I don’t know officer.

    I have known Nick a long time and it is about time that little SOB spend some serious jail time. He has a criminal record a mile long that includes robbing, I believe, a McDonalds in Old Town…he deserves to be locked up for good. I don’t know about all of you, but I am sick and tired of spending my tax payer dollars on state representation in court for losers like him. I would much rather spend it on keeping his sorry butt in jail so that he doesn’t do this to someone else.  The justice system needs to stop slapping hands and saying that he will get rehabilitated…just over it. He has caused a lot of problems over the years.

    Back in Nov 2011, a man was brutally murdered with a crowbar.  That killing murderer got only $30,000 bail , which should have been much much more, according to this $50,000 bail for beating up this woman.  These bail amounts vary so much for same crime. 

    • Anonymous

      and the reason why the bails are so ridiculous, is because the Judges in Maine are too laid back. This state needs a complete douching of it’s Higher ups’ in the Judicial System. There is absolutely no reason a bail for an assault and a murder should vary by $20,000. The state of Maine should grow a set and start over crowding prisons and we can have the prisoners fight for bed space. Why do we care if they are over crowded anyway?? Our tax dollars will be paying for it all at days end after all.

    This was an outrageous thing to do to a woman living alone with her small children. She was in her bed totally defenseless and at their mercy. It’s her home and it’s her business if she had methadone and cash on hand. Should we all be afraid to have anything of value at hand lest some thug decide to take it from us? I personally hope they don’t make bail.

    Maybe Marcia should not have told her meth friends about getting a windfall of 6000.00.  And why would a student loan be paid directly to her and not be paid direct to what ever school/college she was going to attend?  Now the children are damaged you know what that means—-glad they were not injured in the incident.  

    • PaulNotBunyan

      A student loan can be for living expenses and other things besides tuition. It can be in addition to scholarships and grants. I’ve known people whose loan checks got sent directly to the school and then the school gave them a check for the amount left over after tuition and fees.

    Had this loser in class years ago. He was always getting away with things, and he was good looking so all of the girls liked him…nice girls..they would do his homework and let him cheat on tests.

    This person along with the other one sould be locked up for life.  This was a brutal crime.  This woman could have been killed by them.  I bet that they don’t do anymore than 3 to 5 years for this though.  This is why we have people killing others and burning their body’s in cars.  The court system needs to keep these kinds of people in prisson for a long time 10 to 20 years and not give them bail….

Now all we can do is hope some half decent criminal in prison will end this magots life.
