Boston mayor suggests ‘torture’ for slay suspects



Published: Thu, September 23, 2010 @ 10:57 a.m.

BOSTON (AP) — Boston Mayor Thomas Menino has made an emotional response to how the suspects accused of robbing and killing a pizza delivery driver should be treated, telling a group of college students he would “slowly torture” the three.

The Boston Globe reports that Menino was talking to Emerson College students last week when he was asked about the death penalty for the suspects in the Sept. 2 stabbing death of 58-year-old Richel Nova.

According to a student recording, the Democratic mayor first explained why he thought the death penalty was unfair, before saying he would like to fight the suspects in a dark alley. He then said he would give them something “worse than the death penalty,” and torture them.

Nova’s two daughters once worked in the mayor’s office.

Menino tells WBZ-AM that he regrets his comments and let his emotions get the best of him.
