DAs wear ribbons in solidarity with slain Texans


For the past two days, Massachusetts prosecutors have been wearing black ribbons in solidarity with the prosecutors recently killed in Texas, the Massachusetts District Attorneys Association said. “It is a very small gesture but it reflects our deep sympathy for the family, friends and colleagues of [District Attorney] Mike McLelland, his wife, Cynthia, and Assistant District Attorney [Mark] Hasse, who was murdered in January,” Essex District Attorney Jonathan Blodgett said in a statement. McLelland, the Kaufman County district attorney, and his wife were killed in their home this week; Hasse was killed in January.
