So, why is this guy living in the elderly housing complex? I bet they feel real comfortable with that.

I have a better question: why was he released (twice – $500 each time) on only $1,000 bail? I thought Westborough judges had better (pardon) judgment than that. Frankly, I don’t know what good an emergency restraining order is going to do considering they live in the same building. Not that I pity him for being temporarily homeless, but do we really want someone prone to violence out and about? He should be locked in a cage, and I consider that too good for him. Sorry, but I just don’t take kindly to people who beat on women. Makes my blood boil. Severely. Hope the woman turns out OK.

Also, I don’t believe Colonial Gardens is a 65-and-older community. I believe it is subsidized housing.
