See, if it's 2:27 in the morning and you're standing around yelling at each other at the corner of Tremont and Winter streets downtown, you might want to listen to the officer when he tells you to break it up instead of ganging up on him, because, you know, cops today have radios and stuff:

Man found dead around 9 p.m. yesterday at 63 Armandine St., Dorchester.

Four thugs got off four rounds at 337 Centre St. (Mozart Park) in Jamaica Plain sometime today before fleeing in a 2000 Honda Civic (Mass. plates, 13TB55). Nobody reported injured.

The two teens shot yesterday afternoon at Washington and Beech streets in Roslindale were hurt pretty badly - one may be paralyzed from the waist down. Both were shot from behind.

Coincidence? This graffiti showed up on the grates on both the Bani Restaurant and Dajajo's sometime this weekend or early Monday. Then two teens were shot right there on Tuesday.

Geoff Edgers reports that somebody's illegally broadcasting gospel and hip hop at 99.7, making it impossible for people in Ashmont to hear the classical station. Wonder if it's these guys? In any case, Edgers adds the FCC is on the case. I found the link to the station site on this page, which lists a whole bunch of low-power and pirate stations in Boston, many serving the local Haitian community.
