Unequal Treatment

Bean Town Cop Busted With Army Issue Bombs

A Boston police officer is free on $1,000 bail after police in Plymouth say they found a cache of military grade explosives in a shed at his former home.

Kirk Merricks, 43, of Dorchester, was charged Friday with 11 counts of possession of explosives, along with theft and ammunition charges.

Police say they received a call on Thursday from the homeowner, identified as Merricks’ estranged wife, saying she was cleaning out a bedroom closet and found four ¼ sticks of TNT and assorted ammunition in a metal box marked “highly explosive.”

The bomb squad responded to the home on Paddington Way, where explosives experts recovered a briefcase from a shed outside the home that had “a bandolier that contained four military-grade M203 rounds, six detonator cords with attached blasting caps and two rolls of timed fused cord connected to non-electric fixing mechanisms,” District Attorney’s office reported.

Merricks is accused of stealing those explosives and storing them in the shed.

Plymouth Chief Michael Botieri says investigators think the items were stolen because they are military grade and not available for purchase by the general public.

While Merricks is licensed to carry Boston police-issued ammunition, ammo possession charges were also filed because the ammunition that was recovered was not police-issued, according to investigators.



Ok, a big FU to Assachussets first, for their NY/NJ level firearms laws that are so insane that having “other” ammo is a crime. Ammo not issued by the State or in calibers for which you have no registered weapons. And the “quarter sticks of TNT” sounds an awful lot like the large fireworks called blockbusters around here. The “1/4 stick” thing is pure urban legend and totally false ... because if you had REAL sticks of TNT, why on earth would you break it into little pieces and then store it?

But the detonators are a different story. And the 4 M203 rifle grenades are another, much uglier story altogether.

The guy busted in NJ the other day had “military grade explosives” as well. Maybe, don’t ya think, just MAYBE somebody somewhere ought to be looking into how these things are getting out of thought-to-be secure military storage, or snuck back from the wars by soldiers and sold on the black market? Because we’ve spent billions and billions “terrorist proofing” all those places, and the military absolutely can search every last package and duffle bag leaving the sandbox. No excuses for even a single bullet coming back in anyone’s footlocker.

Hey, I’m all for the Second Amendment, but I don’t want whackos having crew served machine guns, grenades, artillery shells, or commercial explosives ... unless the stuff comes on the open market for the rest of us to buy if we want. Yeah, like that will EVER happen.

So now that Crappy Nappy is quitting the DHS to go play School Marm, will the Swiss Cheese Ammo Dump be the next never-shoulda-happened scandal to push under the Obama-bus?

Oh, and dig this:

Boston police have placed Merricks on paid administrative leave and taken away his handgun and badge. He has worked for the department since 1999.

Merricks was released on [$1000] bail and the case was continued until a probable cause hearing on September 10.

Excuse me, what? What what what? The guy had stolen Army bombs and commercial explosives in his shed, and he gets TIME OFF WITH PAY and bail set at only $1000??? I call racism. RAAAAAAACIIIISSM!!! Because if he was some loner White guy, bail would have been $30 million and he’d be rotting in a deep dark cell, immediately fired from whatever job he may have had, and convicted by the media on every TV channel.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
