Henny, You say this didn't need to happen. I agree but you are forgetting some very important aspects. The Bolaski's had nothing at all to do with the argument that started this whole tragedy. They admit they didn't even know Vinnie. It was none of their business yet they involved themselves and they called Vinnie down to fight. Testimony states Vinnie got out of the car with no weapon. Only when anywhere from 8-10 people advanced toward the car did this tragedy unfold. Yes Vinnie should not have continued, that is obvious and he paid the ultimate penalty. He paid with his life! You say if someone comes at you it's on. Well, Vinnie was shot in the back while trying to get away after already being shot once. Yes, it could have been avoided right from the beginning, if Bolaski didn't involve himself in something that was none of his business, if they did not call Vinnie to fight, if they did not take the guns to fight, if they did not go with a gang to the mother's house and assault an elderly lady, if they did not advance on the car with a a gang of men, if they had fought one-on-one as Vinnie had first thought. Yet you say if Vinnie just left. Well there were a lot of "if's" before Vinnie had that decision to make. But what could have or should have happened means nothing at this point. For whatever the decisions made, Vinnie is gone. Families lives are ruined. Made even worse by the actions of the Vermont judiciary. We are haunted by that question every day, and will suffer with it the rest of our lives, but it will not bring our son back. It will not bring justice. You are right about one thing, This must stop! And if this site helps one person see the futility in all of this and prevents another tragedy or injustice, and brings to light the wrong doings of the justice system, then this site will have served it's purpose.

nobody thought anything like this would happen? come on! vinnie went prepared for battle, he had a weapon a maul and taser! should we believe these are carried every day like the tire jack or flashlight? i get why this website is up- but you only add insult- murder is wrong not justifying that it was not called for: but definately could have been prevented if someone comes at me with any type of weapon its on regardless of outcome but if you think your gonna be in a situation were you need weapons and you have a choice not to go- well dont go this didnt need too happen your all trying to justify what each other did your all guilty- vinny should have not had weapons the bolaskis should not have had weapons ! WHAT DID YOU EXPECT - JUST STOP ALL OF YOU! IT COULD HAVE BEEN AVOIDED! I WISH THE BEST POSSIBLE TO ALL AND HOPE EVERONE GETS SOMETHING OUT OF THIS! I KNOW I I HAVE-

Joe: It doesn't matter what led up to the murder of Vincent. What matters is that a life was taken and that it was no accident. What matters is people have been left behind to suffer and deal with this tragedy everyday. What matters is that parents have to wake up everyday thinking about their precious child that was murdered by your friend. So it really doesn't matter who felt threatened and who felt scared they weren't MURDERED! So go tell your sob story somewhere else because I am sure the people on this page don't want to hear how someone felt helpless. By the from the evidence that I have read this was not a accident. I pray that the courts will see that it wasn't a accident and that all involved will pay for their crime.

Thank you Shelley! We really appreciate your support and thoughtfulness. It is very comforting to me and my family. FYI, Sand relented and moved the arraignment to tomorrow 10-20-09.

JOE YOU STATED THAT THIS WAS AN ACCIDENT DO YOU COMPREHEND THE DEFINITION OF ACCIDENT I THINK NOT. YOU CANNOT ACCIDENTLY SHOOT SOMEONE TWICE AND BEAT THEM WHILE THEY LAY DYING IF YOUR IQ DOES NOT ALLOW YOU TO UNDERSTAND THIS,THEN PLEASE READ THE POLICE REPORT SLOWLY AND CAREFULLY.
P.S.TO RONNIE AND VIN SR MY THOUGHTS WILL BE WITH YOU ON NOV 17TH
10-13-2009 7:04:31 PM EST
Joe, I agree with you on one thing, and I say this every time someone posts the same thing you did, trying to make this Vermont against the world, not all Vermonters are like that! There is nothing on my site that is not in public record, court documents or sworn statements. First you say that Vinnie went in the house stole something, threatened everyone and would not leave. The facts are Vinnie argued with Ben outside and then left. The incident you say about Vinnie going in the house without being invited was the next day according to testimony. He did not scream or threaten anyone per Blanchard's testimony. Blanchard told 3 stories, Vinnie stole money, then Vinnie didn't steal anything just didn't pay for weed that Blanchard sold him, the final testimony from the grand jury states Blanchard gave Vinnie the stuff to get him to leave. When Vinnie left they were chased to the house. Why? Why were they chased at all? There was no need. If you know all these "facts" could you tell me why they chased him, speed limit or not? Why they called other groups and assaulted an elderly lady on her own property? Screaming, yelling threats and actually assaulting someone on her own property! After being asked to leave and putting 2 girls and a woman in fear of their lives? They did what you accuse Vinnie of but went even further by bringing weapons, Blanchard admits he had a tire iron, and assaulting a defenseless elderly lady. To make them feel, in your own words, scared, helpless in their own home! But yet you mention nothing of this! On the other hand Grand jury testimony also states Vinnie never went in the house at all. Also, Blanchard's own testimony says Vinnie did not steal anything. Nor did he threaten anyone, yelling or not. This is from Blanchard himself.
Something else you don't mention. This had nothing to do with the events of the next day! Nothing to do with luring Vinnie to the field to fight. Stopping at the house to get the murder weapons before meeting Vinnie. You say it was an accident. How do you accidentally shoot someone in the back as he's running away, then accidentally beat him with the rifle and kick him as he lays helpless? Please explain that to me. I would like to hear your explanation for that. No matter what you say about "so called facts" there is no denying that every word in this site is from direct testimony, sworn statements and police reports. Can you say the same about your "facts?
10-13-2009 4:26:14 PM EST
What I don't understand is why just because some people apparently don't agree with the site they have the need to tell you how they feel in such a rude manner. They don't agree with it, okay they don't agree with it, but until they lose a child in the manner Vinnie was taken, they have no right to talk and they can't even fathom what we are going through as a family. If they could understand, they'd be doing the same thing. The site isn't hurting anyone, so it doesn't need to be taken down, especially if it is our way of heeling. If it bothers them so much, then they just need to stop looking at the site.
10-13-2009 3:26:19 PM EST
Had to pick up my little girl. Anyway, Joe: I'm astounded you can say those girls are nothing but trouble, and yet, you say nothing about Bolaski shooting Vinnie in the back. You say nothing about Bolaski beating Vinnie, repeatedly, with the rifle stock as he lay dying, and you say nothing about Arbuckle kicking Vinnie in that same position. WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU? You say there are so many lies--what are the lies? I'm interested in knowing the truth if YOU believe the Grand Jury testimony are lies. Testimony, I might add, from the same people that committed this senseless act on that field. There's nothing you can say that could possibly justify the cowardly act the Bolaski's, Arbuckle, Ucci, and Blanchard thrust on Vinnie that day. That fact that YOU claim you know the truth, and won't deliver it makes you as much a coward as them.
10-13-2009 2:04:45 PM EST
Joe: what would your last name be? Smith? And you live at 1313 Mockingbird Lane, right? Yeah we got that address. It's the same address as the other anonymous posters. I get a kick out of you guys. You come on here screaming worthless propaganda and think you're speaking sensibly. You say: IT'S TERRIBLE WHAT HAPPENED BUT PEOPLE NEED TO UNDERSTAND NOBODY WANTED OR THOUGHT FOR A SECOND SOMETHING LIKE THIS WOULD HAPPEN THAT DAY! Are you telling me the Bolaski's never discussed the possibility of killing Vinnie when they transfered the rifle from truck-to truck? Are you saying that topic never came up when Corey went into that house and grabbed the second rifle? What is it about you people that come on here and try to justify the actions of drug dealers peddling their dope to your kids? Why would you look past the intent?
You say: ITS SAD TO SIT HERE AND READ THE "SO CALLED" FACTS FROM ALL THESE PEOPLE THAT WERE NOT THERE! Were you? If so, you're no better than the punks that "lured" Vinnie down to that field. And the facts you claim "so called" are documented. In case that slipped past you, what I mean is Public Record. TO BE SITTING ON YOUR COUCH RELAXING TO HAVE YOUR FRONT DOOR OPENED AND ENTERED WITH OUT PERMISSION, TO BRING ANGER AND VIOLENCE INTO YOUR HOME. TO ASK THEM TO LEAVE AND THEY DON'T LISTEN, THEY STILL CONTINUE TO YELL AND BE ANGRY? TELL ME HOW WOULD YOU FEEL?? Hmmm, let me think...just kidding Mr. Smith. I would simply pick up the phone, dial 911, and have this person deal with the cops...Unless, of course, I deal dope, and have it spread throughout my house. That is, if that's what really happened but, according to the testimony of those that were there. That's not how it happened. Grand Jury testimony states that Vinnie never entered the house. It also states there was no screaming and yelling. In fact, those same Grand Jury transcripts state that Blanchard offered Vinnie weed to leave. THIS IS HOW IT ALL STARTED. THAT IS NO EXCUSE FOR WHAT HAPPENED, BUT I WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW WHAT LED UP TO THIS! Now that's interesting. You, being the upstanding citizen you are, obviously stated this to the investigating officers, right? RIGHT??? NOBODY EVEN SEEMS TO BRING THAT PART UP!! I wonder why you haven't. Is it because you were sharing in the dope? THE VICTIM ONLY LEFT THE HOUSE THAT DAY BECAUSE HE HAD STOLEN (What???) You left that part out. That's also a matter of Grand Jury testimony. If something was taken, why didn't you post it? I'll tell you why you didn't post it. Because Grand Jury testimony states that Blanchard made that up. He gave three different accounts to what happened that night. It was his testimony, under oath, that nothing was stolen. Let's face it, you knew there was dope in the house too, and you know more than you're saying. But you won't come forward because you know the element you're dealing with. You FEAR these clowns you're defending. So you try to spatter worthless propaganda. The girls had nothing to do with what happened the following day. Vinnie was home, relaxing, when he was lured down to that field. If anyone wasn't aware of what was going to happen that day, it was Vinnie. He didn't call them that day, and he wasn't antagonizing them. He was provoked--by these creeps that you're defending, and then lured down to that field. If these freakin punks just left well enough alone, this wouldn't even be a discussion. But, because you fear these punks, you think coming on here and spreading your crap is meaningful. Well, from my standpoint, it worked. Because you've proven to me that you're post is as worthless as the poster.
10-13-2009 11:49:55 AM EST
To Joe, This can only be the story that you were told. I can understand you wanting to believe their story. But I also believe you know the truth!!!If it helps you shut your eyes at night and open them in the morning then the lies work for you. They don't work for me.
10-13-2009 1:10:30 AM EST
THIS HAS GONE TOO FAR! IT'S TERRIBLE WHAT HAPPENED BUT PEOPLE NEED TO UNDERSTAND NOBODY WANTED OR THOUGHT FOR A SECOND SOMETHING LIKE THIS WOULD HAPPEN THAT DAY! THOSE BOYS ARE NOT THOSE KIND OF PEOPLE, NO VERMONTERS ARE! ITS SAD TO SIT HERE AND READ THE "SO CALLED" FACTS FROM ALL THESE PEOPLE THAT WERE NOT THERE!
HAVING SOMEONE YOU DO NOT KNOW TRESPASS INTO YOUR HOME TO THREATEN YOU AND YOUR FRIENDS, THAT IS SOMETHING NOBODY WOULD WANT TO GO THROUGH. TO FEEL SCARED, HELPLESS, AND UNPROTECTED IN YOUR OWN HOME BECAUSE SOMEONE FELT THEY HAD A RIGHT TO ENTER WERE THEY WERE NOT WELCOME. TO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY THERE IS A STRANGER IN YOUR HOUSE ASKING PEOPLE TO STEP OUT SIDE AND FIGHT OVER DRAMA AND LIES OF SOME IMMATURE GIRL?! TO BE SITTING ON YOUR COUCH RELAXING TO HAVE YOUR FRONT DOOR OPENED AND ENTERED WITH OUT PERMISSION, TO BRING ANGER AND VIOLENCE INTO YOUR HOME. TO ASK THEM TO LEAVE AND THEY DON'T LISTEN, THEY STILL CONTINUE TO YELL AND BE ANGRY? TELL ME HOW WOULD YOU FEEL?? I KNOW HOW I WOULD FEEL!!
THIS IS HOW IT ALL STARTED. THAT IS NO EXCUSE FOR WHAT HAPPENED, BUT I WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW WHAT LED UP TO THIS! NOBODY EVEN SEEMS TO BRING THAT PART UP!! THE VICTIM ONLY LEFT THE HOUSE THAT DAY BECAUSE HE HAD STOLEN AND NEEDED TO FLEE AS FAST AS HE COULD, AND AS FAR AS CHASING, FOLLOWING SOMEONE DOING THE SPEED LIMIT IS NOT CHASING!!
THE VICTIM WOULD HAVE NEVER EVEN WANTED TO ENTER THAT HOME THAT DAY IF IT WASN'T FOR THE 2 GIRLS THAT HE WAS WITH! THEY ARE NOTHING BUT TROUBLE! EVERYONE SHOULD PROBABLY BE BLAMING THEM!!
THERE ARE SO MANY LIES AND EXAGRRATIONS NOW THAT NOBODY WILL EVER SEE THE "REAL" SIDE OF THINGS!!
WHAT HAPPENED WAS AN ACCIDENT AND PEOPLE CAN THINK WHAT THEY WANT! NOBODY WISHED DEATH UPON ANYONE THAT DAY!!

Annonymous: I don't know what you have against my son but not only are you blatantly biased but there is no way you are even a parent! No parent can be that devoid of feelings. You spew your hate filled venom of lies and bigotry under the mask of anonymity. Without the courage to use your own identity. Cowering behind the words of hatred! You say you are not friends with anyone involved yet you slander and degrade someone not able to defend himself and at the same time praise a coward who stomped a man while he lay on the ground dying! You accuse Vinnie of being on all kinds of drugs yet none of those were in his system. But the killers were drunk and on drugs. You say you could see this brewing yet the defendants state they did not even know Vinnie until that day. You state that he is guilty of abuse of women and prescription fraud. Stating that these are documented. Where are they documented? He has never been accused of any of those charges! You deliberately lied!! And you do it while cowardly hiding behind the shield of anonymity. If anyone is ridiculous it is you and your hate for someone you do not even know. Simply because he was from out of town. There can be no other reason. I have stated nothing but the facts as they have all been documented and brought forth in statements and legal proceedings. Yet you chose to ignore everything and write your own story. You say you are unbiased yet your actions tell a different story. Saying what you say does not make it true. Just as if you shoot someone in the back, beat him as he's dying then claim self defense does not make it true. The real story here is that of a corrupt judicial system that believes it is above the law! That believes they do not have to abide by the law of the land and use the justice system for their own selfish needs. That repeatedly protects and allows these drug dealers, murderers and thugs back onto the street at the cost and sacrifice of it's own people. The hate you display is the very thing that caused this tragedy that has destroyed so many lives. You have brought shame to Vermont to the outside world. I do not believe this is indicative of the people of Vermont. I do not want to believe that. I know there are good people there that do not hate outsiders. I know, by the words and support that we have received from a lot of good people of Vermont that they are tired of this happening. Normally I would delete this type of hate filled message of lies and deceit but it must be shown. To show your own people how you shame and degrade them. I have one question for you. If you do have children remember this. Those people you are protecting, the drug dealers that you are defending will be going after your children one day. If they do not already have them in their grasp, and you will lose them! Or, God forbid, you lose them to one random act of violence, because the judicial system failed to act. Then you will feel the pain, the agony but it will be too late. What will your hate do for you then? What is it doing for you now?
10-09-2009 1:15:10 PM EST
Well-well-well!! What do you know, another anonymous post bashing someone who isn't here to defend themselves. You people must be great at parties. You say: "I would never wish this upon any parent, but the fact of the matter is we have always lived in a society where we hope for a source of protection, yet when it is not there or you fear for your live, you can protect yourself, your home, and the ones you love with deadly force."
Well that's exactly what Vinnie was doing. Those freakin idiots planned this murder. They lured Vinnie down there and, when the five of them approached the car Vinnie arrived in, Vinnie did what he had to do to protect the ones he loved. As far as you saying Vinnie was drug crazed, read the coroner's report. No drugs or alcohol were in his system. Can the Bolaski's, Arbuckle, Ucci, or Blanchard say that? C'mon, will you?
You claim you're not friends with either party, yet you refer To Vinnie as "Vinnie", and Arbuckle as "Mr. Arbuckle"? Is that the view of a non-biased party? You claim you saw this building long before it happened. Well, that has about as much truth to it as you saying Vinnie was drug induced. Non-biased my a**. I think you can do a little better than that. You know what this sounds like? It sounds like you read this site and was so shocked by the truth, you became frightened yourself. Well you should be. Because the people you're trying to defend are walking among you.
You didn't read this whole this whole thing. You only read what you wanted to read. Because if you did read thise whole thing, then you would know Vinnie's parents are not justifying their son's actions. What they are doing is pointing out the injustices of the system you claim is there to protect you. Maybe that's why Vinnie was lured to that park that day, Because the Bolaski's, Arbuckle, Ucci, and Blanchard knew the justice system of Vermont wouldn't be there to protect Vinnie.
Rather than bash the Tamburello's with your BIASED opinion, maybe some day you will thank them for standing up to the system that failed you, your kids, and the innocent people of Vermont. FOCUS PEOPLE.
10-08-2009 7:07:03 PM EST
This site is ridiculous. I can understand if you want to honor your sons memory. I am a parent and can't imagine what you are going through and I feel for you as any parent should and would. The fact of the matter is I saw the building of this clash long before it happened. This site is one point of view and biased at best! I am neither friends with either parties and the fact of the matter is Vinnie was a enraged, out of control, hostile individual who was fueled by pharmaceutical drugs, cocaine, steroids, and alcohol. He is also guilty of the same types of incidence and behavior that you use to describe Mr. Arbuckle! He is guilty of abuse of women and assault, including assaults with weapons, and prescription fraud. His accounts are well documented in the Springfield and Massachusetts area. It is obvious with the actions of his brother CT in local establishments, local individuals, and Television that he shares the same types of of taste for drugs, alcohol, and brutality. It would seem that this is not an acquired behavior, but that of people who have been allowed, accepted, and tolerated to act like these two. It is far to late to save one son, so try for your sake to hold on to the other and work on changing these behaviors. I would never wish this upon any parent, but the fact of the matter is we have always lived in a society where we hope for a source of protection, yet when it is not there or you fear for your live, you can protect yourself, your home, and the ones you love with deadly force. Our country was built on this theory and that is why we stand as one of the most feared and loved countries in the world. Let Freedom Ring.

I think you are doing little vinnie justice! growing up i remember him being our ball boy in the cage and then when he was older kicking our butts with his great skills he learned from his dad. I have been reading updates and the message board and i like randy feel if you have something to say don't hide expose yourself we are not judging people we are sharing option on the injustice the tammberello family has been given over the past year. I am very happy that he has been charged and in time maybe they will also charge sands with something like corruption!!! Again Vin keep up the pressure never back down.
09-27-2009 11:04:45 AM EST
Thank God Sand finally got some sense. I wonder what finally pressured him into taking this seriously for once. Hopefully he won't loose his nerve and finally prosecute the way he is supposed to; idk to the fullest extent of the law. Justice will be served! Ronnie and Vinnie, I think it's amazing you are willing to put your deep emotions out there for all to see in search of justice for "Lil Vinnie. He is still missed as much today as last August.
09-24-2009 9:37:27 PM EST
Ronnie and Vin, You guys are amazing. Congratulations on this victory. Vinnie would be proud of you!
09-24-2009 8:11:12 PM EST
Prayers do not go unanswered. I am so glad to see the latest news. I hope they lock him up and throw away the key...
09-24-2009 12:20:08 PM EST
I just saw it on the news!!! I hope to god that Kyle goes to jail this time!!! This is such great news! And it def. put me in a better mood hearing this today on the news!!!!
09-24-2009 10:41:09 AM EST
CONGRATULATIONS! That is a great victory. At least they are now charging him. We will pray that Mr. Sand does what is expected of him and get the maximum penalty for Bolaski on all charges.
09-15-2009 2:55:46 PM EST
WHY HASN'T BOLASKI'S BAIL BEEN REVOKED YET? I SEE THIS IS GUY STILL WALKING AROUND! WHAT IS THE CONNECTION BETWEEN HIM AND SAND? SAND IS PROVING EVERYTHING SAID ABOUT HIM. HE IS FOR THE DRUG DEALERS AND CRIMINALS! WISE UP SAND! DO YOUR JOB!! GET THESE @##$%*&@ OFF OF OUR STREETS!
09-06-2009 10:22:29 AM EST
So well said Vin Sr, and Randy !!!!!
09-05-2009 1:35:40 PM EST
Oh...and by the way "Ben". Read the facts. While there may be implications that Julie may, or may not, have said something, this incident had nothing to do with it. This incident transpired from the actions of the previous night. Spoken from those involved. This is basic common knowledge. So, before you come into this site, load yourself with the truth. At least, then you can submit a a meaningful post.
09-05-2009 1:16:13 PM EST
Hey Victim: Another mask. What a surprise. What is it with you people and the masks? You post anonymously and scream worthless propoganda. I imagine it's easy when you wear a mask(personally, I wouldn't know. My home is where I hang my heart, not my murderers). I mean, c'mon, do you vote like that? You say, "AS FAR AS IM CONCERNED JUSTICE HAS ALREADY BEEN SERVED AND SERVED IN VERY GOOD TIMING BEFORE SOME CRAZED LUNATIC HURT SOMEONE SERIOULSY." What about the person that fired that shot? Are you claiming he was in the right frame of mind? This freakin lunatic fired shots in a park full of Mothers and their children. Is that not the actions of a lunatic? Is that a sound mind. Bolaski knew he was going down there to shoot someone. Transferring that first rifle from truck-to-truck proves that. His brother, grabbing the second rifle from the house, had the same intention with that rifle. It makes no difference what was said, the intention was clear. To add to this dilemma, if their sole intention was "self-defense" as they claim, why the rifle butt to the face? Why the kicks? This man was neutralized by the first shot. Why the second? It makes no difference what was, or wasn't, said. These creeps knew their intentions. I'm inclined to believe anyone who posts anonymously has the same cowardice actions as the Bolaskis and company. And if you ARE that Ben, why the anonymous post? I'll tell you why. Because you're not THAT Ben. Just someone who has nothing sensible to say when the facts are put forth. Get a Life, dude.
09-05-2009 12:41:53 PM EST
Anonymous: I want to start this by saying, I'm not wearing a mask. You, obviously, are to post anonymously. You say--with conviction I might add--that Bolaski is "not the type of guy to just stand up and kill someone." That being the case, why did he stop at his house and grab the second rifle? Why any rifle, for that matter? He had his brother Corey, Ucci, and Blanchard with him, while Arbuckle waited for them down at that field. If my math serves me right, that's five on one. Why the rifles? He had four other creeps with him, going down to a field to fight one guy.
You don't know what was on Bolaski's mind at that moment in time. Don't go trying to paint him an Angel. If you know him well enough to "think" he wouldn't have the sense to kill anyone, then you know the drugs he's peddling around there. You also know this dirtbag just got busted for forging prescriptions. Is this the dirtbag you're defending? Doesn't say much about your character, or your post. Actually, you just made yourself look stupid.
You say "This site is all about trying to make Vinnie look like a perfect guy." You obviously didn't read the site because his father talks about his son's iniquities right on the first couple of pages.
Excuse me, did I use "iniquities?" Let me explain that to you, because your syntax sucks. Iniquities means morally objectionable behavior. I've never once read anything on this site that justified his son's actions. I also never read anything that glorified him in any way. Neither did I read anything that attacked native Vermonters, or Bolaski himself. He stated facts. Facts you obviously took offense to, because you only know what Bolaski told you. Did Bolaski happen to tell you they were drinking and smoking dope in the hours leading up to this incident(at least, now that you know that, you know where he got his BALLS from)?
Now that you're reading the TRUTH, you take offense. You take offense that Vinnie's dad isn't bashing anyone. You take offense that he is the morally correct citizen you claim "Boston" is void of. Read the freakin' papers up there, anonymous. Learn what's going on around you. This isn't an anyplace USA vs Vermont situation. These are issues taking place within your own community. You have a voice, don't waste it defending the creeps that give your community a bad name. Use it to rid your streets from those very same perps you defend.
