Bo Sullivan first began his long career at WHYN radio in 1990 as a sports talk show producer. Bo then moved on to become the host of that sports talk show. In 1993, Bo became the sports anchor and co-host for the WHYN morning show. After a few hiatuses, both planned and unplanned, Bo came back to stay in 1996 as the morning show sports anchor, producer, and co-host.
Born and raised in Westfield, he's now raising his own family there. He lives with his wife Kris and daughters Leighanne and Shannon. When Bo was growing up, his father Richard Sullivan was superintendent of schools in two local communities. Politics runs in the family. Brother Brian is a Westfield city councilor and brother Rick is the city's seven term mayor. Besides transporting his children to various activities including CCD and swimming lessons, he coaches both daughters in three different sports. He also works as a part-time political consultant. In his scarce spare time, Bo likes to golf and is a frequent visitor to the Connecticut casinos.
What does Bo like most about his position at WHYN? For one, he's a big fan of waking at 3:30 a.m. Monday through Friday. He also enjoys meeting the many loyal listeners to the show. His lifelong ambition is to open a sports bar and play Texas Hold 'em every day of his life.
Again, the victim mentality is being applied to the poor unfortunate who played fast and loose with his life in a traffic stop…and lost.
Do I wish he was alive today?
Do I blame the police officer for following his training?
At this time, given the circumstances as they presently stand, I do not.
In fact, as a trained law enforcement officer, (irrespective of how long he has been on the force) he gets the benefit of the doubt.
I have had a caller this morning, trying to challenge me on these points…he had nothing to offer to succeed in that effort.
Back and forth we went on when (we assumed) the police officer saw or uncovered the hand guns n the car.
What difference does it make?
The guns were illegal.
The moment you become combative with the police, contrary, or even argumentative and you are in the possession of lethal weapons…well, what does any rational, cogent person think the result is going to be?
The man had choices.
First choice..well, not to be riding around at with illegal handguns,….
Second choice, when detained by police, cooperate.
Had it been myself….at the moment I was stopped and the officer approached, I would have my hands over my head and be yelling at the top of my voice that I had a gun, or guns in the car.
And I believe I would be alive today.
In jail, but alive.
But … here comes the victim mentality…….there is a phrase you hear …a phrase that is supposed to mitigate anything and everything…and that is “he was turning his life around…”
However, he was still riding around at night with illegal guns.
Further, he has a record for accessory to manslaughter, and selling pcp in the vicinity of a school yard.
Under these circumstances, I am hard put to assign him the benefit of the doubt.
A life ultimately was forfeit.
That life, was his.
The only way it could possibly have been anymore tragic, is if the police officer had lost his.
