Boston Docs Murdered in Their Home: It Should Have Been a Defensive Gun Use

David Codrea writes [via ammoland.com]

“A DOCTOR couple were found with their hands bound and throats slashed in a blood-soaked £1.5 million penthouse,” The Sun reported Sunday. “Cops discovered British anaesthetist Richard Field, 50, and his fiancée Lina Bolanos, 38, slain in Boston, US, with a “message of retribution” scrawled on the wall.”

“One of two doctors killed in a luxury Boston penthouse sent a text to a friend saying, ‘gunman in the house,’” BBC News elaborated Monday.

Field had time to reach his phone and to send a text message. That makes it fair to speculate if the outcome would have been different had there been TWO “gunmen in the house.”  And/or a “gunwoman.” Especially since CBS Boston is reporting “police found a BB gun or a ‘replica gun’ inside a backpack.”

With specific information lacking, probabilities suggest British and Colombian pediatricians, one also working with Harvard Medical School, would not have been proponents of the right to keep and bear arms. In any case, there have been no reports of armed resistance. Instead, indications are the anti-defense admonition to “give an attacker what he wants” was followed.

Curiously, but not unsurprisingly, the UK reports and most “mainstream news” reports omit significant information about the suspect, Bampumim Teixeira. Most sources, like the Chicago Tribune, are telling us he “had recently been released from jail after serving time for larceny. Last June, he passed a note demanding money at a Boston bank. He committed the same crime two years earlier, prosecutors said.”

The guy’s been an abusive and parasitic drain for years. So why is he still here?

But we need to turn to what’s disparaged by the elite media as “alternative right wing fake news,” like a Monday report on WND.com, to find out the “West African immigrant” is a “permanent legal resident” who for reasons unknown had his sentence reduced and was not deported. And no one in government seems to know why – the state defers to the feds and the feds don’t have an answer.

If nothing else, that should call attention to the so-called “rigorous security screening” we’re told immigrants must go through.  How that’s possible with no reliable comprehensive records, especially for the Third World, never seems to be explained.

Two other clear lessons are also once more indisputably illustrated for all who are willing to see: The police did not arrive in time to save the victims. And the suspect was only stopped because the men who did had guns.

    Not sure why the (linked) article is so shocked that DOCTORS!!!!1! were murdered. Are only crackheads supposed to get murdered? Is that okay?

    Yes, should have been a defensive gun use. Also should have been a time to CALL THE POLICE instead of texting your friend. Yes, it makes noise. Still probably a lot better if you’re someplace like Boston where response times for priority-1 calls are good. I can bet playing a game of telephone with a friend to the police impacted that response.

    I’ll add that it’s criminal (not literally) that text-to-911 has been slow-walked so much. Not only does it not work in enough places but you can’t even find out if your locality does it by looking at a simple list (instead you have to download some file with a weird extension that I’m sure works great for them changing databases but not to someone who just wants to check a damn webpage and see if their locality is included)

      Also the immigrant scum bag who committed this crime should have been deported long ago.

    So we traded the lives of two doctors to allow this criminal a-hole to live here and now we have to spend tens of thousands of dollars a year for decades to feed and house him in jail. Also, Mr. Guest in our country, is getting some free health care right now cuffed to a hospital bed. Wow, that’s some donkey-level epic, rectal reaming happening to Americans.

      Every time I see a POS that should have been killed on sight being given free medical so it can be rung thru the legal system makes me sick.

  3. avatar Ralph says:

    I don’t care where he came from, Teixeira is a POS and should have been shot dead the minute he showed his ugly face in the victims’ home.

    Even in Boston, two doctors would have no difficulty obtaining a restricted permit to keep a firearm in their home. A carry permit? Don’t make me laugh.

    I enjoy carrying in Boston. Every time I do, I laugh at the idiots around me who think that the cops will protect them.

    1. avatar Art out West says:

      As a felon, and a foreigner, he shouldn’t have been allowed to remain in the country.

      Therefore, it does matter where Teixeira came from.

      Home carry.

      Clearly the state can’t always protect you.

    Always home carry! The judge kept his sentence at 364 days because 365 days for his offense would have triggered deportation. Not the BPD would have turned him over to ICE because immigrant rights supersede ours.

    1. avatar Pwrserge says:

      Let’s be clear. This scumbag is no more an immigrant than I am a prima-ballerina. Real immigrants care about the laws and customs of their new home. This garbage is just a third world economic migrant trolling for handouts.

      1. avatar 16V says:

        Exactly! The misuse of the term ‘immigrant’ to include people who are here illegally is another way the left is twisting the language. I have many immigrant friends, they’re all legal and most have become citizens.

      2. avatar Cloudbuster says:

        An immigrant is exactly what he was. “Real immigrants care about the laws and customs of their new home.” Bull. That’s simply a subset of immigrants and by no means defines a “real” immigrant. Whether you like it or not, a “real” immigrant is anyone the government chooses to give that status. That currently includes a lot of people who hate us and don’t give a damn about our laws. Treating the world as if it was as you wish it to be instead of as it is, is foolish.

        We need an indefinite immigration moratorium.

    2. avatar C.S. says:

      Too bad the judge can’t be charged as an accessory to murder and sued, and I somehow doubt any sleep was lost.

    You think?!?!?

    As I stated in another recent post, choose not to be armed (for self-defense) at your own peril.

    Saying it another way, you are making a serious mistake if you choose to be unarmed for self-defense. Unfortunately, it is an unrecoverable mistake.

    This is the dream that 2asux and the cisco kid, amongst others, have for us. Nice dreams, right.

  7. avatar former water walker says:

    They had money and chose to be unarmed. Life’s rough and you can die. Of course the POS murderer should have been met with force…oh well.

  8. avatar Mark Lee says:

    Being from MA, I heard the local news state that both victims worked as “pain clinic” doctors, which led me to believe that this was most likely over prescriptions for opioids. Doctors I’m MA have been overreacting to the recently passed law restricting prescriptions for new patients, yet they are stopping the treatment of all of their long-term/legacy chronic pain patients on a wholesale basis. It came very close for myself, who was fortunate enough to find an alternative by the skin of my teeth, but I am aware of hundreds of other perfectly law-abiding chronic pain patients who are being left in a very desperate lurch. The perpetrator didn’t look like he had any chronic pain issues, but he was likely benefitting from someone he knew closely that one or both of the victims had cut off from further prescriptions.

    Based on which factor? That they were doctors? Or, that they were residents of Boston? Or, is it the Harvard connection? Speaking as someone with “Dr.” before his name, and knowing quite a few of them, I can tell you that many ARE armed. Some are rather enthusiastic enthusiasts. 🙂

    I might agree that their geographic demographics (the Harvard factor notwithstanding) would be more of an influence or indicator of their gun proclivities or lack thereof. 🙂

    But, I join you all in wishing it had been a DGU. A shame to lose two good people to this sociopath.

      Although of course, limited to home carry being in NYC where only the rich and famous can carry.

    1. Might agree to the fact that they were “Professional Doctor and could have got “Rubber stamped” LTCs from BPD…Of course, it’s the Leftist-police of Massachusetts….The People’s Republic of Massachusetts where there is NO 2nd amendment, only a local /state police permissions…Because it was Boston, they may have been discouraged by “local authorities.”

    2. Its the People’s Republic of Massachusetts…It always depends on what township, or city you live in…Your Leftist Local police department maybe less inclined to issue you an LTC, but you might get a supposedly “shall issue FID- for a low capacity rifle, or shotgun…” (for sporting purposes only….Of course….)

    All US news reports said that the man was a “pain control” anesthesiologist and the woman was a pediatric anesthesiologist and that for some unstated reason, it is thought that the perp was known to (one of) them. Lots of other weird unexplained stuff – how did the nut case get to the penthouse of a gated, secured building? How did the male victim have enough time to send a text message? I would bet that either the pain control doc cut someone off, or the perp thought he could get drugs and money from them. Interestingly living in VA, not MA, and working with doctors — I know for a fact that at least some pain control doctors open carry even in the office so that the dopers know exactly what will happen if they pull any funny stuff.

    I agree with home carrying but first comes the will to fight.

    In the words of Lance Thomas “He threatened my life and intended to negotiate, there is no negotiation, my life is to precious to me”

  13. avatar Adub says:

    So the guy *didn’t* have a gun and yet both doctors died anyway? Why didn’t the man fight while the woman made a run for it?

    1. avatar Ardent says:

      As the article states, it appears they attempted to cooperate and were killed anyway. That said, why not fight? I’m not too much for hand to hand myself, and my wife, well she’s even less for it, but it would still take one bad mother to whip us both at the same time in a fight to the death.

      Then again, we have the will to fight, I home carry, and the house is strategically seeded with guns. Everyone has to choose their own way I suppose, their way resulted in their deaths, and our way would likely have resulted in the death of the perpetrator. Still, it was their choice…

    The three L’s Libertarians, Liberals and the Left, totally support the right of complete welfare cases coming to America sucking all of us dry. And if they rape and murder that’s ok with them.

    They have a right to come here!!!!!!!!!
