Reports are coming in from Rhode Islanders who experienced the incident firsthand.  One North Kingstown runner finished the race moments before the explosions.  Frank Coseglia said he was a block and a half away when it happened, and wasn’t sure what was going on. 

Charges of alleged corruption at Logan cab stands

Feb 13, 2013

Cab stand workers at Boston’s Logan Airport are accused of corruption.  Five men are being arraigned Wednesday on charges of taking bribes.

Cabs operating legally at Logan report to a taxi pool where they are dispatched to terminal cab stands in order.  Prosecutors claim the cab stand workers collected between $20 and $40  from any cab driver who wanted to cut in line.  Longer-distance fares would also be steered to some of the cabbies.

Some of the drivers told investigators this system nearly doubled their daily earnings.
