The thin blue line of freedom

I’ve often discussed the huge philosophical differences between my own New Hampshire and Massachusetts, that persistent reminder of just how things could be worse, just to our south.

But it’s nice to see another take on the situation, especially when it’s from a police officer.

If there’s anyone with a better perception of the law as it affects the average person on a daily basis, it’s gotta be a guy whose job it is to enforce it. And here are two former MA cops who moved to New Hampshire, saying just what they see as the distinctions.

Welcome to New Hampshire, Lt. Baldwin and Chief Goldstein. And thank you for helping us keep our state just the way it is.
