New Hampshire teen charged with being the dumbass who made threatening calls to two Boston bars

Boston Police report that Seabrook, NH police have picked up a Hampton, NH 16-year-old wanted for calling in violent threats to dbar in Dorchester and the Alley Bar downtown earlier this month.

Boston Police had previously obtained warrants charging the kid, not named because of his age for being delinquent for making threats with serious public alarm and for civil rights violations. Both bars have a large LGBTQ clientele.

The Dorchester Reporter reports the teen "made threats to kill" at both bars. WBZ reports he specifically threatened gun violence against the Alley Bar.

Boston Police say he is also wanted on warrants in other communities.

The teen will first be arraigned in New Hampshire as a fugitive for justice, before being extradited here for arraignment, police say.

S**t like this always seems to come from NH--the Alabama of New England

You fell right into Adams trap. He emphasized the NH part due to his extreme prejudice towards NH (among many other things)

Oh please, Aretha Franklin’s

Oh please, Aretha Franklin’s mansion in Detroit just sold for $300,000, you can’t find a (decent) condo in Dorchester for less than $400,000. Maybe stick to NH.

Not his first rodeo, apparently

At the time of his arrest, the suspect was wanted on outstanding warrants sought out of Suffolk County Juvenile Court for Threats with Serious Public Alarm and Civil Rights Violations in connection to that investigation as well as additional warrants stemming from other charges from outside jurisdictions.

I wonder if he moved in order to complicate legal action?

I wonder

I wonder if his parents are fundamentalists realizing whom he had feeling for thought if they moved out of liberal Massachusetts and his feelings would magically go away. The kid not getting the support he needs at home is screaming out for help. Of course, it is the wrong kind of help he is seeking but this kid has "will come out in 5 years" written all over him. He is acting out because he doesn't know how to process his feelings and doesn't have anyone in his circle of support to advise him.

I am not advocating that he not be punished because clearly he should be, but that part of the punishment should include proper psychological care that he has not received up to this point. Hopefully that can put him back on the path to learn how to properly express his emotions.

You have no evidence

With absolutely no evidence whatsoever, you have concocted an entire scenario and made the immediate assumption that this kid is some kind of "repressed homosexual" who is "acting out" by committing these criminal acts. You have fallen right into the knee-jerk "every boisterous homophobe a repressed homosexual" meme which in itself is a clear form of homophobia, i.e. the kid has "feelings" that are making him act "sick". Sometimes a homophobe is just a plain old homophobe.

excuses the kid's violating the law and making threats over the phone? Come on now, Ralph!

Only concerned with revenge?

By on

Yes, as I said, he should be punished for his behavior. I would also like to give a 16 year old a chance to become a contributing member of society in the future. I was not giving excuses to not punish him if you read all of my comments but saying that he needs help if he will ever have a chance to become a contributing member. I would hope we all would want that, not just revenge for past behavior but the ability to reform and after punishment can learn how to get along in the world at large.

Juvenile should just wait until January for court

By on

Juvenile should just wait until January for court since new DA says she won't prosecute these type things.

I wouldn't be surprised if the kid read the stories about her unwillingness to prosecute and decided to have some "fun" knowing nothing will happen.

If the new DA thinks that bomb scares are a minor crime,

By on

her thinking already seems to be more than a little bit skewed. The woman should realize that bomb scares are nothing to dismiss out of hand, nor are they the least bit cute, clever, or funny. The perpetrators could be responsible for the death of somebody; a person could drop dead of a heart attack, a stroke, an asthma attack, or even an epileptic seizure (although deaths from epileptic seizures are quite rare.).

Whether the person who perpetrates the bomb scare is a juvenile or an adult, s/he needs to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law accordingly.
