In fairness...

Relative to lots of grainy B&W CCTV images, this one is actually pretty good. Here's to hoping they catch up with Chuckles (or whatever his grammar school friends call him).

He looks like a total

He looks like a total dickhead. He's the type of kid that at 10 years old would complain and punch his friends if they didn't let him play with their copy of Pokemon Gold, and his friends wouldn't want to let him play it since they were sick of getting it back covered in boogers. Now he's just taller.

He looks like anybody else

I'd love to do the experiment of pairing randomly-selected crime stories with randomly-selected pictures of people, and hear the comments about how "you can just tell he looks like the sort of guy to commit that sort of crime."

I agree

His guy seems like as average a guy as possible. Of all the perps' photos the Transit Police release, this guy wins the "least likely to assault a bus driver and threaten with a knife" award easily.

Not that I'm denying it happened or that he did it, but still.

Check Quincy Center Station

Quincy station is overrun by muggers, buggers, and thieves. I always see transit police vehicles parked on Burgin Parkway but I have never seen a transit cop patrolling the station.

It would appear that someone joined the exodus to the South Shore.

It's okay. A lot of people live in Boston for a few years then decamp to the 'burbs. I mean, I didn't do it. I've had a constant family presence in the city since the 1920s, but you don't have that connection.

Do you like living in Quincy?

huh?
