Nope

Under Mass. law, indecent assault can be any kind of assault contrary to "contemporary moral values." That's not always a sex crime.

This is the bigger story here, someone from the hood actually speaking up to better their community.

even remotely true.

er...

By on

...which do you mean?
Not remotely true that these groups do something for the neighborhood or not remotely true that you support them?

An anudder ting, just what the fuck is decent assault? Is there some sort of assault that's "in accordance with contemporary moral values"?

yay

I'm glad.. there's NO need for this senseless act. I hope they get the book thrown at them.

but know the Massachusetts judicial system, I some how doubt. How much you do wanna bet they have no previous criminal behavior and will get off with a slap on the wrist.

(and the juvi will get next to nothing)

Suggestion for a uhub intern?

By on

Adam,
You should assign a journalism intern to track the results of your older crime posts. They would post a short one or two sentence update to these type of stories. For example:
Douglas was convicted and sentenced to X months probation. etc. That would make your vast catalog of crimes much more valuable. It would also have the secondary effect of Google-exonerating the accused if they are found innocent.

That's my tip - take it or leave it!

Do you need to

pay the interns now, per court ruling???

Oh, no doubt

Which is another issue, given my intern budget these days :-).

Bleach violence, as with gun

By on

Bleach violence, as with gun violence, will mean focusing on banning the weapon. Meanwhile, these Clorox perps will somehow be pitied, much less arraigned, and much, much less convicted.

What a shame, especially for the victims.

Hey now they already came for the phosphates in your dish-washing detergent and look how well that worked out.

More special treatment for no good reason

A juvenile, not identified because of her age, is also charged and has been picked up, police say.

When are we going to finally wake up and eliminate this total BS nonsense of giving special protection to the suspects of serious crimes just because of their AGE?

If anything, that decision should be based on the severity of the charges. Instead, we have "the suspect is charged with attacking somebody with bleach. But they're only 15, so they'll get a pass at best, or a closed hearing and sealed record at worst." Give me a break already!

And what is so wrong with sending the message to everyone ("juveniles" and adults) that crimes have consequences. And one consequence is, as a suspect, your name is revealed to the public. No ifs, ands, or but about it.

Make them use Hubway

Does Boston still offer $5/year memberships for low income applicants? How does the city enforce overage time for people who might not have credit cards, or does it go on their EBT card?

Don't worry Mark the governor is working hard to make sure every poor person and illegal alien gets a Cadillac at your tax paying expense to take whatever parking spot you were looking for, clog your commuting route during rush hour, and crash into you without insurance at every opportunity. /extreme sarc
