Signs like this normally only come out a couple days after a blizzard, but David Harris spotted this angry warning to a Brighton car keyer in the middle of our first heat wave of the summer.
Said department wields the Wrath of God.
He probably meant the BPD's Brighton police station, which, yeah, is a thing.
I called the Dorchester police dept. a week ago.
Or doesn't realize that Brighton is part of Boston. Maybe its a trick to make the criminal let their guard down because they think the victim is clueless about what city they are in.
most students have no idea whats boston and whats not:

OK, in the greater scheme of things, this issues is hardly a major one, but, no, Roslindale is not a suburb, any more than Cambridge and Somerville are part of Boston, another thing Boston Magazine forever declares.
I'd say that a lot of people in Boston have little idea that they live in a city larger than their neighborhood - and grump about it, regardless. See also "Southie is my Home Town".
And I can assure you anyone from South Boston is well aware it's a neighborhood of the City of Boston. Anyone raised in Boston knows what neighborhoods are the city and when you're in another city.
was inquiring about the South Boston Police Department.
Reminds me of the time I was watching the local news, I forget what channel, but one of the blow-ins they hire to cover the news was outside the Moakley Courthouse and said "live from the city of South Boston". I'm not kidding.
Who are you supposed to call, what with the Statie and BPD turf wars going on...
They seceded. You didn't read about that in the papers?
If Boston voted to leave the Commonwealth/Union, what would it be called?
And it's coming. Just not what you think.
The People of Brighton voted to Brixit. Then the Brighton House of Pancakes voted to delay to get a better deal. Then the Lord Vice Mayor of Brighton decided not to run, or do a 'hard Brixit' or something. Then the lands to the north, Allstonbury, did a thing, but no one knows what, because of their incomprehensible accent.
So, it's been delayed a bit.
Thank G-d this didn't happen in February.
Yes. Boston Police District 14. Allston Brighton
And they still use tape..?
Yeah right, and I'm sure the Brighton Police Dept. is working double time to review the tapes for someone who probably had a reason to key your car. Across town where I live people see stray bullet holes in their cars and nothing ever comes up on the tapes. You have live in Beacon Hill or Upper Back Bay to get results.
The author of that note has a good use of emphatic bold letters. Perhaps has a future in comic books.
I was thinking the same thing, who is the coward in this article. Is it the note writer or the keyer?
is more passive aggressive than the moron who keyed their car.
And was there any particular reason why the car was keyed or just random?
If it's the *police* raining down the wrath of *God* on the miscreant, after all...
A native would say 'loosah'. Just sayin'.
This is what I feared Catholic confession would be like... those expressions of self love would've had me weeping with sorrow..
sounds much more like something an evangelical dispensationalist Protestant would say. Catholic sermons are extremely tame by comparison.
Your friends (if you have any (you do not)) know that.
