focusing some heat in the lower 90's toward bc and this front does have a couple of showers and thunderstorms but notice where most of them are heading come up into canada. we are still dealing with what's left of hermine. a storm that won't go away. as it departs it will take more cloud cover with it. we are in the lower 70's on the across southern new hampshire, merrimack valley, mid-70's but as the sun pops up, we sneak into the lower 80's. we will touch between 80 and 85 degrees. as we get deeper and the clouds really start to break apart north and west of boston and that pushes closer to the coastline through the rest of the afternoon. we look off to the west and we see this frontal boundary. showers and thunderstorms come

the agreement, 100 officers will be selected from a pool of anticipated volunteers. the result, no one step forward forcing police commissioner evans to select 100 from an amply sized membership. the union leadership posted notices warning their members to stay on the sidelines and thus succeeded in solidifying their ranks against use of the cameras . how else to explain the lack of even one officer's willingness to test a system already in use in methuen and around the country? disputes between police and citizens on interactions which go south. they protect the police as well as citizens, resolve disputes before escalation. in boston where the police have successfully navigated troubled waters affecting other cities, video has helped prove the police version of two shootings and maintained order. boston remains one disputed incident away from the civil
involved shootings. unwillingness to where cameras even in a limited test form send the wrong signal. such reticence is in contrast to the many admirable and innovative programs conducted by the police department and is more likely to chip away in favorable relations between boston's residents in the police force that works hard to keep the narrator: "by almost every measure, public charter schools have been a success."
