    Why would this alleged assault that occurred in Dudley, MA be published in the Fall River Reporter? Dudley is on the RI-MA border south of Worcester. Of what interest would it have here?

      It happened in Douglas, not Dudley. As the Providence Journal covers more than Providence and the Boston Globe covers more than Boston, we cover more than Fall River.

    She looks like a trailer park troglodyte. This is the behavior of a powerless goon who can only prey on someone weaker than it! Off with their heads…
