Monday, March 27, 2017

Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, died of cancer Saturday in South Shore Hospital. He was 74 and lived in Hingham. Get Today's Headlines in your inbox: The day's top stories delivered every morning.When he was 71 and already being treated for advanced cancer, Mr. Hayden came out of retirement to serve for a year as interim police chief in Brockton at the request of a new mayor. “I will give you every ounce of my strength to try and make your city safer,” Mr. Hayden said during the ceremony announcing his appointment.Under his leadership, the Brockton Police Department became one of the first in the state to carry the overdose drug naloxone. He also launched a stress unit to help officers cope and went door to door talking with residents after a major crime. He spent hours alone talking with the homeless in local parks.“He was transformative as far as the Brockton Police Department,” said Mayor Bill Carpenter.“He hated bullies and liked to arrest bad guys – that was all part of the aura – but he also wanted to help people,” Carpenter said.As a deputy superintendent in Boston, Mr. Hayden oversaw police in Government Center, East Boston, Charlestown, Beacon Hill, and parts of the Back Bay. During President Clinton’s first administration, he accompanied the president on a run along the Charles River.After the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, Mr. Hayden voluntarily joined recovery efforts at the World Trade Center.In 2001, he was recruited for the reality TV series “Lost.” He was paired with a wise-cracking young man from Tennessee, whom Mr. Hayden eventually threatened to throw off a mountain.The pair were first blindfolded on a plane in Cleveland and delivered to an unknown country with little money and no maps on a quest to reach the United States. They led for most of the 21-day adventure, but made a wrong turn and eventually came in third.“He loved it. He said it was extremely difficult,” said his son Robert, who is an attorney. “They slept on park benches. He said he could relate now to homeless people – having no money and being hungry.”Globe Staff/FileMr. Hayden (left) jogged with then-Boston Mayor Ray Flynn, th...

Namon Hoggle, 81, Accused in a Civil Rights Killing, Is Dead - New York Times

Monday, September 26, 2016

If I hadn’t indicted them, what would you newspaper people have said?”Mr. Reeb’s companions during the attack — the Rev. Clark Olsen, 32, of Berkeley, Calif., and the Rev. Orloff Miller, 33, of Hingham, Mass. — identified Mr. Cook, but said only that the Hoggle brothers “resembled” their assailants.A waitress said Namon Hoggle had been nearby with the other two men. Another witness said he had been at a different coffee shop. The defense argued that Mr. Reeb had died of injuries suffered on his way to the hospital, or of neglect, so he would become a civil rights martyr.One potential witness, who was also charged in the attack but not tried, refused to testify. Another witness was declared mentally incompetent, and two others had left the state.After deliberating for 97 minutes, interrupted only by a brief, unexplained visit from the sheriff, the jury acquitted all three defendants. Richmond M. Flowers, the Alabama attorney general, said local prosecutors had swept the case “under the rug.”In an interview last week, Michael Jackson, the Dallas County, Ala., district attorney, said, “It’s unfortunate that Reverend Reeb’s case is another in a long line of civil rights cases that will be left unresolved.”After his acquittal, Namon Hoggle operated Bama Motors. Its location, Jefferson Davis Avenue, was later renamed J. L. Chestnut Jr. Boulevard to honor Selma’s first black lawyer, who laid the groundwork for the Selma-to-Montgomery march in 1965. Civil rights groups have unsuccessfully sought to organize boycotts of the dealership, which is run by Mr. Hoggle’s grandson and has its share of black customers.The F.B.I. reopened the case but closed it again in 2011 without pursuing charges, saying that “the man whom we believe is responsible, Elmer Cook, is deceased” and that Namon Hoggle, the only survivor implicated, had been tried and acquitted in state court. William Hoggle apparently died in 1996.Mr. Olsen, accompanied by his daughter, a television producer, made a return visit to Selma in 1998 and there tried to interview Mr. Hoggle, but he slammed the door on them, Mr. Olsen said.“I hope they found something in their soul that said what they did was wrong, and that they found some way to make some amends for it,” Mr. Olsen said of the defendants in an interview with CNN.Anne Reeb was 6 when her mother told her that her father “had been hurt badly enough so that he wasn’t coming home.” Ms. Reeb is now active in Sojourn to the Past, which acquaints students with the civil rights movement, and returned to Selma in 1990 for the 25th anniversary of the march. She did not seek out Mr. Hoggle.“We never felt like we wanted to go down the path of confronting him or having hard feelings,” she said in an interview on Friday. “Knowing that he passed away sort of c...
