Listen to the Outrage

From the Boston Herald:

A 25-year-old man who had been missing since Tuesday morning was found slain yesterday afternoon in the backseat of a Nissan Maxima parked behind a Mattapan apartment building.


Boston police last night said (Damien) Service, whom they did not identify, died of head trauma.

An investigation has been launched; however, authorities would not say whether Service was shot or stabbed.

Yes, another young black male is brutally slain on the streets of Boston. Another life senselessly taken away. A hard-working man who came to Boston from his homeland of Jamaica, struggling to make a better life for his girlfriend and two-year-old daughter, ends up violently slaughtered in the street like an animal.
