used every subterfuge in the book to get across to it's readers that the folks living in the trailer park are 'white trash' without actually using that odious phrase. They're much more respectful when reporting on non-white crime scenes and victims.

Rolling cigarettes at his kitchen table *sigh*

It's not the white part, it's the trailer-park part

We're talking about a newspaper that just yesterday reported on the "new" phenomenon (i.e., new to the Globe, Boston Magazine reported on it last fall) of salons that only wash and blow-dry women's hair and reported that this limited service is "only $35," so I'm sure the idea that people live in trailer homes is very exotic to them.

ronnie's murder

By on

I'm shocked I've known Ronnie & his family for a long time at least 20yrs since i was 17. We were tenants of him & his family. He used to call me "tea cups". He was a good guy & funny n harmless at most he wud tell u off not violent guy I'm sure the skum who killed him didn't have good enuff reason. Drugs , $$$, ir a girl are NEVER reason to take a life. Ronnie & all his brothers were there when my little sister died especially RONNIE. I hope his dad brothers and sister can find strength n have faith that God n justice will see them all through. Its strange , haven't seen him in few years yet my friend & I were talking about him just this past week & this funny silly thing he use to say ALL THE TIME. . "ITS NICE" IVE MISSED THAT & I KNOW I WILL. ..... IM SORRY THIS HAPPENED TO HIM & HIS FAMILY. . RIP RONNIE

And the new police station is

And the new police station is a stones throw from that trailer park, I assume it was a quick response time. I live on the hill in Beachmont and never walk anywhere past Suffolk Downs, so I can't speak as to the conditions of the park, but the victim was known in the Beachmont area, heard a few people talking about him at Dunks next to the station this AM.

Not near the beach

I *think* the trailer park in question is the one where Winthrop Ave meets 1A. That's the only one I know in that area.

It's not marked.

It hasn't been marked since I was a kid in Beachmont. it's one small street off of Winthrop Ave right after the the 1A overpass and about a quarter mile from the police station. I think it's called Pratt Court on the map.

It's not on the beach, it's

By on

It's not on the beach, it's off of the Revere Beach Parkway which starts at the Beachmont end of Revere Beach and runs by Suffolk Downs into Chelsea and Everett.

Ron

By on

I was shocked and stunned to hear of RoNs brutal death. I have not seen him or his family since 2003, but knew them well. As a matter of fact, ron and i lived together in Winthrop for a couple of years. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. Grace
