    He didn't say anything about race. I mean, you can assume his intent, I guess, or we could just not feed him.

    Typical

    By on

    Typical liberal knee-jerk reaction. Had it been an ICP concert, or worse yet, some random Southie bar, we'd probably have at least 100 comments bashing the white trash. The white guilt force is with you, young padawan!

    Typical right-wing knee reaction

    By on

    To act as if young men attending a "rap concert" were somehow unusual in their propensity to get in a parking-lot fight.

    How do we have a "right-wing"

    By on

    How do we have a "right-wing" reaction in a city which is overwhelmingly registered (D)?

    ...a lot of loud-mouthed, bigoted right-wingers don't vote, but they do post on comment boards pretty regularly.

    just a guess.

    Rappers count

    on Chad and Sara from Weston to buy their product and the suburban Chads and Sara's come through in spades (no pun intended). Who are the fools in this game of race finger pointing?

    Wow, entertainers want people

    Wow, entertainers want people to buy their products? I had no idea. Thanks for pointing that out. That really helps put this whole incident into perspective.

    It's a good distance from HoB, so it could have been an argument at the Beerworks over dry hopping, drunken bro's from Cask 'n Flagon or any other establishment along Lansdowne Street. Who was playing at HoB?

    That there isn't anybody, particularly anybody young, who ever works swing shift or graveyard!

    No, nobody. They use robots at 24hr supermarkets and hospitals after the respectable job people go home at respectable hours.

    So, who is in trouble?

    Since this happened right next door to Boston Beer Works, I guess they'll be in front of the board soon to answer for this melee, right?

    Depends on your definition of soon

    By on

    Could be two to three months. They only hold emergency hearings when people suffer injuries severe enough to warrant calling in Homicide (like that seven-person stabbing at Ups 'N' Downs a couple years back).

    I don't know why any buisness

    By on

    I don't know why any buisness would be responsible for a fight, and why does everything have to become a race thing its getting old and an easy excuse make up a new one
