There really is no drive to

By on

There really is no drive to try and mitigate the prob of violence in the well known trouble spots of Boston's "hoods", its hard traveling throughout these parts as an unaffiliated young person....or as older/tourist/wtvr target of opportunity. So blame TV, socio-economics, PARENTING, its not gonna go away and not just localized to Boston. Just look at the national stats (surely a problem worth addressing during campaign season)
This is an endemic through out the nation, that needs to be addressed, and not just treated as symptoms of living in shitty areas. Do you really trust those hordes (the entitled wiley YOLOs) I dont.
