Did Weymouth Triple Murder Suspect Fall Through The Cracks?

Did Weymouth Triple Murder Suspect Fall Through The Cracks?
RudolphThe Weymouth teen charged with bludgeoning three family members to death last week, narrowly escaped jail two months before the murders. Back in September Donald Rudolph (above left) pled guilty to assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. His attorney convinced the judge to suspend his two-year sentence, if he agreed to seek mental health treatment for his bipolar disorder, ADHD, depression, and paranoid schizophrenia. He never did and now three people are dead. What more could have been done to safeguard the safety of his victims? And should we as a commonwealth be making more of an investment in mental health?

Guest:
  Nancy Rappaport, assistant professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, director of school based programs in child psychiatry at the Cambridge Health Alliance.

The Great Back Bay Blackout
After a smoky electrical transformer fire knocked out power to about 21,000 homes and businesses, sections of the neighborhood are getting back online. But problems are expected to persist into tonight. We’ll have the latest.

Guests:
  Garrett Quinn, WGBH contributor and author of the Less is More blog on Boston.com
  Meg Mainzer-Cohen, president of the Back Bay Association
  Marcia Gregg, a Back Bay resident who (along with her family) lost power (and still doesn’t have it)
  David Jacobs, publisher and editor The Boston Courant, covers Back Bay, South End Beacon Hill and Fenway

The Baffler Is Back
The self-described “journal that blunts the cutting edge” is back in print after a two-year hiatus. The Baffler’s latest issue of scathing media, political and cultural criticism hits newsstands tomorrow. And no cow is sacred. (Not even the one that pays its bills).

Guests:
  John Summers, editor of The Baffler
  Thomas Frank, journalist and author of books like What’s The Matter With Kansas? and most recently, Pity The Billionaire. Founding editor of The Baffler
