Where is the Media

By on

Although I will give the Globe credit for at least reporting this crime, and giving it front page space now that there seems to be a suggestion that the victim was not the intended target (i.e. she didn't "get what she deserved"), how on earth is the Globe not doing a series of investigative stories to try and unearth or explain the root causes of the violence that is going on in some of Boston's poorer neighborhoods? That is probably a stupid question, but when I look at the front page of the Globe and see four (very tired) stories about Tom Brady and the Patriots, along with a picture of a large ice cream cone under the headline of "boy its hot outside!" it kind of makes me sick. And it should probably make the editors at the Globe a little sick, and ashamed, too. Is this what they went into journalism to write about?

Man bites dog....

Unfortunately, shootings in this part of Boston have become so commonplace that they're not considered very "newsworthy". Dog bites man. Sad

I hope the BPD Tip-Line is buzzing and they make an arrest asap.
