    Southie trash!!

    Let the southie bashing commence. Nevermind the savages committing murder in "certain" parts of the city, they're excused because "they had a tough upbringing" or "Dad wasn't around." ... Liberal morons

    Looks to me like he was shaking his tiny fist at a man...

    ...made of straw. That same strawman is very busy these days: he's waging war on Christmas, helping the government take over the healthcare system, creating false data to support the global warming hoax, trying to take away everybody's guns, covering up the truth about Benghazi, ruining the sanctity of marriage by letting the gays get married, too, and on and on and on. No wonder conservatives are so angry at him!

    Anyone who isn't an ultra liberal is a racist right wing nut. Talk about strawman. Liberals in MA are just as crazy as a tea party republican from the south.

    Liberal Strawman strikes again!

    This time, he's calling anyone who doesn't agree with him bad names -- never mind Mr. Anon's "liberal morons" and "crazy" -- because everyone knows liberals are incapable of arguing issues using facts, logic, and trustworthy media sources. Everybody! I heard it on The Fox News from some bony lady in a blonde helmet, so there you have it.

    Conservatives are such victims of persecution! Look how their views get censored everywhere! You can't really blame them for crying, day and night, about how the world is so unfair to them! Won't someone give them a shoulder to sob into?

    For some reason "tolerant liberals" cannot seem to tolerate anyone who isn't him or herself ultra liberal as well. Seems that the bashing of South Boston over relatively trivial things, far outweighs the Dorchester, Roxbury, Mattapan bashing (Savage murders, shootings, stabbings almost daily). I guess it's only "tolerant" to bash neighborhoods compromised of predominantly whites of European descent.

    the worst thing you could be called was a fucking liberal. So when the natives weren't railing about the niggers, they were railing about the liberals who let the niggers run rampant. So glad to see that progressive thinking still is the order of the day amongst the Southie crowd also.

    Do these jokers suffer from sort of weird....

    ...selective blindness? They can't seem to see that every Boston neighborhood gets covered -- and that folly is called out wherever it can be found in the city (and even some surrounding towns). All I can figure is that SB has a surplus of thin-skinned crybabies (though I'm certain that the vast majority of SB folk, old-timers and newbies alike, have better things to do than whine about how mean Adam and UHub people are being to SB).

    By on

    Not at all. It's very clear crimes from all neighborhoods are covered. Rest assured horrific crimes in certain communities (warzones) go commentless, and mostly petty crimes South Boston receive an astronomical amount of negative input. (I.e. Those white trash backwoods morons! Southie is a dump! Morons in southie!, he's probably on oxy!, Whitey Whitey Whitey!')

    By on

    It was not the number of comments that was the issue, AdamG, it was the number of comments that simply bash the community for being in the headlines. It is clear, that most commenters on the articles you submitted, made no mention of the stereotypical "types" of communities" where those crimes occurred. If it happened in Southie, the comments could right themselves, they are so "canned".

    Obsession

    of Southie on this board is ridiculous. It can be compared to the hate from the Globe back in the 80's. Uhub is a Globe wannabe.

    Bank robberies get mentioned here...

    ...no matter where in the city they occur. Do you think UHub should selectively black-out stories about bank robberies in South Boston -- while noting all the others? If he did that, I suspect we would hear whines about South Boston bank robberies being ignored.

    It's not the articles that generate the venom, it's the comments. Read with comprehension, Kerpan.

    The Majority of

    By on

    Southie stories here revolve around either crime (no particular focus or difference in reporting from other neighborhoods), and Southie’s apparent war against “gentrification” (JP gets it’s licks too). Except in the winter, when the focus is the space saving battle royal; due to Mumbles folding like a wet space saver chair and telling the neighborhood it would look the other way as property is damaged and people are assaulted.

    Doesn’t seem like a disproportional or undue focus to me. It is amusing that the persecution complex of the old guard Southie is still alive though.

    When it's bad news

    By on

    it's Southie, when it's good news it's the Seaport, the Innovation District or the South Boston Waterfront.

    The Seaport / Innovation District is barely a neighborhood

    It has no supermarket, drugstore, or any of the other walkable neighborhood amenities that characterize old residential Southie, i.e., 1st St and south of it. There's a bare handful of places you could actually stick up. It's still largely a place that people drive into and out of.

    Wow!
