1. Quotation.

“We are not barbarians. We bury our dead.”

Comments of the Chief of Police of Worcester, MA, USA, referring to the body of the deceased Boston Marathon bombing suspect lying in a funeral home in Worcester, MA, USA. The funeral director had done his duty and processed the deceased when no one else would do so.

The Chief of Police was referring to the Refusal of the Chief Executive of the deceased’s community of residence to allow the body to be buried in Cambridge, MA.

2. Meeting of the Cambridge City Council, May 13, 2013.

The Cambridge City Council met in a special meeting to discuss the actions of the City of Cambridge, MA, USA, with regard to the Marathon Bombings.

There was a small audience, probably less than ten members of the public, but the meeting was televised by cable to the City of Cambridge, as are Cambridge City Council meetings normally.

Preceding the council activities public comments were received. All three speakers condemned the Refusal of the Cambridge City Manager to allow burial of the deceased in Cambridge.

During the meeting, one man came in, too late to talk, who is an active participant in the Cambridge Machine. He has publicly supported the Refusal.

The City Manager brought with him perhaps twenty members of his team to represent those who labored mightily and with great valor during those trying times.

Clearly, the City of Cambridge performed well under pressure and is a valid source of pride to its residents, both in assisting in actions in the neighboring communities of Boston and Watertown and with regard to actions in the City of Cambridge, which saw the killing of an MIT police officer, a chase of a suspect, a search of his residence, and other related actions, including the close down of at least one other street because of a false alarm. A valid source of pride with one exception.

The City Manager did not estimate the cost of the actions to the City. Those costs were clearly massive.

The City Manager explained his Refusal to allow the burial of a Cambridge resident, the elder of two suspect brothers, killed in a shoot out in which he was run over by his brother. The Cambridge City Manager called his Refusal a property matter. To bury a body in the Cambridge owned cemetery, the family must purchase a plot from the owner of the cemetery, the City of Cambridge.

The Cambridge City Manager said the city could not afford to devote the resources which would be necessary to defend the Body.

As part of his explanation, the Cambridge City Manager pointed out that the rural county in Virginia where the Body came to rest is having to spend their money to defend the Body of the deceased.

The vast difference in wealth between Cambridge, MA, and the rural Virginia county which had nothing else to do with the deceased except for his burial was not mentioned.

3. Analysis.

The Cambridge City Manager should be fired because a responsible city government would fire a City Manager for the Monteiro case in light of the very clear findings of judge, jury, and appeals court, of gross malfeasance in office, to wit, destroying the life of Malvina Monteiro because she filed a civil rights complaint in the women’s rights field. I will not repeat the quotes yet again.

Refusing to bury your dead was probably not a firing offense.

The Cambridge City Manager should not be in office in the first place.

Throughout these reports, I have tried to communicate that the real problem on the Charles River lies in the rotten situation in the City of Cambridge.

This is just another part of the rotten situation.
