Great work, BPD. Thank you.

Question: Can anyone with better research skills than me tell me why, in the state with the supposed toughest gun laws in the US, Karmau Cotton-Landers is on the street after his 2017 charge? A 3 minute search (Plus Adam's story) found that plus others.

It was the guy he was with who was charged for the gun. I've deleted "gun" from the reference in the original post.

For non-Bostonians: one side is on the Commons, the other side is towards the Charles.
Cheers existed on the Commons side but at the foot of the hill.
