For those who’ve been arguing here and elsewhere that the egging incident involving six Newton police officers was a harmless prank, comes this sobering report of what could have happened via the Globe’s Deirdre Fernandes.
It was just before 2 a.m. when loud banging noises outside his Framingham home jolted the police sergeant awake. It sounded like someone was breaking into his house. The 11-year veteran of the Newton police force loaded his gun before he walked outside to investigate….
Also, it seems the sergeant didn’t view the incident as particularly funny either..
The sergeant wrote he was “totally embarrassed and angered by this situation,” and had to take a drive “to settle down.”
