File Under "Welcome to Boston"

Boston Herald:

Police are investigating the stabbing death of a man in his 20s who was killed in one of Dorchester’s most violent neighborhoods, marking the city’s 62nd slaying of the year.


It was the second violent attack in Boston in a span of six hours.

Just before 10 p.m. Tuesday, police responded to 4 Beale St. in Dorchester where they found a black man in his late 50s who had been shot multiple times.

Boston Globe:

Boston police are investigating a shooting this afternoon on Savin Hill Avenue in the city's Dorchester neighborhood, the third bloody incident there in less than 24 hours.

Now, don't any of you go blaming the Boston Police Department for not doing enough to fight crime in the city. It's not like they don't have enough work to do already.

Police issued four violations to Soho, 386 Market St., during an inspection around 11 p.m. on Nov. 17. The bar’s license prohibits dancing*, and the bar was issued violations for no sign posted for cover charge, no receipt given for cover charge [WTF??? - ed.], patrons dancing on dance floor and a DJ playing music on the upper level.

The next time some Menino-worshiping babboon tries to explain to you how the City of Boston needs to increase the tax burden on its residents and tourists to pay for increased police patrols on the streets in Dorchester, you have my permission to kick the brain-dead bumbleknob square in the groin.
