City councilor to lead more anti-violence walks as death toll in his district mounts

City Councilor Tito Jackson (Roxbury) is organizing a series of "Enough is Enough" walks this summer, with the first starting at 7 p.m. on Friday from the corner of Walnut Avenue and Fenno Street, near where a man was shot in a drive-by on June 28.

One of the two men charged in the shooting, Daquarry Norman, was convicted of shooting a Pop Warner coach in front of his players in a Roxbury park in 2007. That shooting spurred a march by the Harvard Black Students Association to demand the state do something about violence in the neighborhood.

So far this year, BPD statistics show that District B-2, which covers Roxbury and part of Dorchester, has recorded 12 murders - half of all the murders in Boston - compared to 6 in the same period last year. The tally includes three shot dead at a Grove Hall house party on June 22.

2013 murders in Boston.

Lock the bad guys up for longer periods of time

By on

and you'll have more peace. When they get early release or court is a revolving door, you'll have more violence. No candle light vigil or prayer service is going to put a dent in the community's violence, which is caused primarily by big $ made through drug trafficking, dysfunctional broken homes, dysfunctional public policies.

B-but the guys selling drugs

B-but the guys selling drugs to school children and inducting children into gangs need to be at home to be fathers to their own children. Just don't ask them to pay child support. That would be cruel!
