"Hyperlocal" is all the rage in journalism circles these days - editors have determined that people really really want to know what's happening right on their street (plus, it's way cheaper than staffing those expensive old State House and City Hall bureaus). Whalehead King is hyperlocal-ing his corner of Dorchester like nobody's business:

Bryan Horgan, 41, was ordered held in lieu of $100,000 cash bail yesterday at his arraignment on several charges related to the incident, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office says (Update: bail reduced to $20,000 at a bail review hearing today). Horgan allegedly knew the boy, 13, through Big Brothers Big Sisters of Massachusetts Bay.
... Evidence suggests that Horgan brought the boy to Horgan's Adams Street residence, where he tried to serve the boy alcohol. The boy refused.
Horgan also allegedly tried to show the victim pornography and sexually assaulted him. The boy resisted and [Horgan] subsequently drove him back home. During that ride, prosecutors believe, an intoxicated Horgan told the boy not to say anything about what had transpired. ...
Only he immediately told his mother, who contacted police. Prosecutors say they are looking for other youths who may have had similar contacts with Horgan.
At his arraignment, Horgan pleaded innocent to charges of indecent assault and battery on a child under 14, assault with intent to rape a child under 16, and dissemination of matter harmful to minors.

That would be the South Bay shopping center, which has gotten so bad that Jason reports he was forced to drive to Braintree to shop this past weekend:
... The parking lot is undergoing major renovations, and is currently a war zone. The traffic patterns at South Bay have always been chaotic, but adding random jersey barriers, loose blacktop, torn up roadways, heavy ground-moving equipment, clueless pedestrians with small children in carriages, and entitled Boston drivers, and it's a recipe for a sludgy disaster. ...
