This one incident is the straw that broke the camel's back for me. Yes, indeedy, this single crime is all the proof I need that Boston has become a post-apocalyptic hellhole far worse than even a jaded observer like you could possible imagine. I'm loading the family in the back of the Prius and we're scramming in an hour - we're not even going to wait to sell our house, we've gotta go now!

In all fairness, I heard Chicago mentioned over the past wknd on all of the major news outlets, including Uhub. People should be concerned if you start omitting news not reporting it.
