Home-security system worked, NBC Boston reports. A Fall River man was also charged.

I don't typically question Adam's headlines but it is interesting that Dorchester makes into the title when Fall River just gets mentioned in the body of the article. I'm sure there are no ulterior motives there but it also contributes to the idea that only negative stories come out of Dorchester.

The only reason I linked to this is precisely because they are from Dorchester. If they were all from Fall River, that's not really a story for a Boston site.

And by no means was I trying to imply anything, just an observation. Sometimes though I do forget that this is a Boston-centric (and not a Mass.) blog.

Adam, you have posted articles outside of Boston. One that comes to mind is the Millis police office who shot his patrol car.

And I post stuff from Brookline, Cambridge, Newton and Chelsea all the time, although not with the consistency I would if I were running, um, Brookline/Cambridge/Newton/Chelsea Hub. I've even posted stuff from farther away than that. But there has to be something unusual about the story. I'm not in the habit of posting about home burglaries in suburbs of Fall River - I made an exception in this case because, yes, three of the four suspects are from Dorchester.

Do you really think Dot doesn't have a crime/criminal problem or are you just embarrassed for them?

I think he is making the Boston connection. Fall River burglars breaking into a house in Wareham is not a UniversalHub story. I guess he could have said "Three Boston residents", but Dorchester is more specific and it's how NBC Boston reported it.
Dorchester is huge, so it's not surprising that it shows up in the news more than Fenway. I wonder if it would be helpful to be more specific, rather than less and include the Dorchester neighborhoods, but, as in this case, that information isn't always available.
