We’ll be reading about this kid in a year or two (or maybe it will be months) for a similar offense. It’s getting exhausting.

Anyone have the latest crime data? I have to imagine 2022 will not be a good year for Boston, crime-wise.

Not sure if there is more recent data, but midway through 2022 most of the worst violent crimes in Boston are actually down compared to 2021 except assault (which was up 6%). Source: https://majorcitieschiefs.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/08/MCCA-Violent-Crime-Report-2022-and-2021-Midyear.pdf
