Funny how everyone was up in

Funny how everyone was up in arms when someone got shot in a mostly white neighborhood a few weeks ago, yet no one gives a rat's arsch when it happens in the projects.

I live fairly close to where

I live fairly close to where the shooting incident happened, and while not an everyday occurrence, its kind of a welcome situation as it removes the shady characters that have the propensity to attract such wanton urban decay. so all in all, two (scumbags?) less in the area to further degrade a formerly quiet housing , and if urban crime has taught us anything will lead to the gunning down or incarceration of the perp. so Keep it in JP, Dorchester and Roxbury folks, quit moving out here with your ghetto baggage.

so-called "anonymousJose" is the only one who made what certainly sounded like racist remarks (I guess the first anon's remarks could be considered anti-white) Quite frankly, I think both were just trolls trying to get a fight started.

This sort of tragedy just plain sucks, regardless of the victim's color or age or gender or situation. So condolences to the families of those involved, from one of your Rosi neighbors.

Replying to the ignorant jackass that wrote this

Funny how your anonymous name is Jose!!!! Those two "scumbags" were 2 young men with families and people who care for them. The scumbags are the ones who shot them! Get it right! ANY life lost is unfortunate, whether you think of them as "urban decay" or not! Who the hell are you anyways? Then you have the audacity to say keep it in JP, Dorchester, or Roxbury? Stereo-typing a bit much??? Last I checked all types of races and classes of people live in those areas. So get it right, its people like you that make this world harder to live in because of your ignorant views and beliefs. Go to church cause your going straight to hell!!!!

First and foremost no matter

First and foremost no matter where u reside theres good and bad in every area. Second, what you consider a scumbag was a very good man and a father of two young children. This is something this persons family is reading. Who the hell are you to judge anyone. Not only are bad ppl killed. Innocent ppl are killed as well. How would you feel if that was your family member and someone said a remark like you did. Roslindale is no better than Dorchester or Roxbury.

Thank u Audra

You said it best... Ppl like Jose should not be allowed in society! Pure ignorance! God Bless the two families involved and his two children! And to the heartless COWARDS, SCUMBAGS, LOW LIFES that are guilty your day will come and justice will be served- so help u God!

Lets Work Together

A young man cut down doesn't live to see tomorrow. This is truly truly sad. Now...having said that...let's see if the neighborhood works together with the police to help them with the investigation.
