  1. Wait, I thought the reason why all the officers were leaving was because of Savino??

    1. is there something wrong with you?this article is about a guy who fell to his death form a 6th floor balcony.this has nothing to do with NPD,savino or anything like that.sounds like you have some”personal issues”.wonder why youre so infatuated with the NPD??hmmmm?

    1. SOUNDS LIKE MR ANONYMOUS ABOVE IS OBSESSIVELY INFATUATED WITH SCOTT SAVINO.I MEAN REALLY,REALLY OBSESSED WITH SUCH A POINTED”SO,MAKE IT RIGHT”COMMENT.USUALLY SOMEONE WHO IS THAT OBSESSED AND COMMENTING LIKE THAT IS EITHER THE PERSON HES REFERING TO-IN THIS CASE-SAVINO-POSTING AS”ANONYMOUS” OR IS INFATUATED WITH SCOTT SAVINOS WHOLE SITUATION.IF YOURE STILL POSTING ABOUT IT MONTHS LATER,MR ANONYMOUS-YOU NEED SOME SERIOSU MENTAL HEALTH HELP.THE REST OF US HAVE GOTTEN OVER IT MONTHS AGO-GIVE IT A FRIGGING BREAK!!

    2. A 4 word post versus a very long tirade post – who needs the mental health help??

    3. THE GUY WHO WROTE” MAKE IT RIGHT “DOES.THIS” MR MAKE IT RIGHT” WROTE THAT COMMENT IN AN ARTICLE ABOUT A GUY WHO DIES FALLING FROM A BALCONY.HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH SAVINO-YET HE THOUGHT IT WAS SOOOO IMPORTANT TO PUT THAT TOTALLY OUT OF CONTEXT POST THERE.MR” MAKE IT RIGHT”-WHY SO OBSESSED WITH SAVINO???

    4. Let’s not pile onto “make it right” I think he is a friend of Savino, and is probably still burning about what was done to him. The more I learn of what was done to him and how it was done to him and Maryann, the more I am scandalized by the whole affair. I still believe that Savino’s job and the way he carried it out did cause a lot of good people to leave Northampton PD. But as a lot of the letter writers have pointed out, it’s the whole culture of the department that is screwy. By the end of next week, I’m going to post more.

    5. i agree mike.i think hes a buddy of savino.i think its funny.the guy sounds like hed make a comment about NPD and savino even if you wrote a story about say-nature trails or fitzgerald lake etc.just so weird that the commenter goes off on tangents about it .he -the commenter-sounds fullof resentment,anger etc.i for one thought your article about the guy falling from the balcony at walter salvo wa sa good article,wellw ritten etc.

    6. Oh hes definitely someone who is friends or a relative, and while I agree that once mr kirby writes more on this with what he’s learned and we find out this was a lynching in order to protect others inside that pd, the topic doesn’t belong under this story.

  2. I’m commenting as someone who has nothing to do the with NPD, knows no one in city government and is simply on the margins of this place trying to understand what makes the city tick.

    Having said all that, I have to say how completely disgusted and disturbed I am by this new post by Kirby about the meaningless death and tawdriness smack in the middle of town. Why this incident hasn’t rung alarm bells is deeply worrying.

    At the same time, the city was agog over a painted crosswalk while the depraved death of a young guy footsteps away goes practically unnoticed. Two Council meetings came and went without a single word uttered about this case, and instead we get the usual yucks and bizarre bonhomie on full display. Is it any wonder we get just city employees and the oddball giving comments at the public session?

    People are losing faith in the city government, and no one seems to notice or even care.

    1. from comments around northampton from people who knew the guy that fell,he was supposedly very very intoxicated.had been straddling the balcony railing -leaning against it and was a bit wobbly and getting the spins. he was leaning over talking to the person on the ground floor as he was against the balcony,leabe dover too far and pitched forward-causing hime to fall.it was all from being very drunk and loss of balance and coordination from booze.thats why theyre saying it wasnt a suspicious death.it was caused by intoxication,impairment from booze and just generally not paying attention to being 6 floors up.if youre that drunk you dont wanna be near and open area-balcont cause youre gonna fallif you lean t far over.had he not been severely drunk hes stillbe alive now

  3. You are all really missing the point of this article. The Northampton Housing Authority is run by someone who has very little concern for the conditions that the tenants live in. If Jon Hite privately owned apartment buildings and ran them the way he runs the NHA apartments he would be known as a SLUMLORD!

    Why doesn’t the NHA evict problem tenants? For that matter, why don’t they even clean up the bio-hazardous fluids from a tenant that passes away and decomposes before the next tenant moves in?

    That’s right! Now I remember!!! Jon Hite is one of the well-connected progressive liberals who support the current mayor. The current administration is full of incompetency. From Mayor Narcissist on down. Very little has changed since Higgins has left other than we are now stuck with a lack of leadership for 4 years,
