  1. This news is so sad. Officer Remigio was a good cop and was one fine human being. Whenever I saw him he was always smiling. Just a great person. I offer my condolences to his family and loved ones, and also to his other family, the men and women of the Somerville Police Department. I ask that all in Somerville take a moment and say some prayers for Officer Remigio. This is a tragedy.
