Is Central Square subway stop least problem. And 5AM? Odds are good he's homeless.

Neck beard, always a red flag.

If he is, he seems to have access to laundry facilities and a shower.

As a former homeless person, having clean clothes and freshly showered was actually pretty easy to uphold. Even if I had to use a gallon of water in the woods.
It's personal choice in my opinion.

I'm not saying HE is respectable, but there are plenty of respectable reasons to be out at 5am. First shift starts at 7 for a lot of manufacturing jobs. Or the breakfast shift at Starbucks or McDonalds. If you've got a long commute, or if you're planning to go to the gym before work...you leave at 5. Unfortunately, there are way too many bigots who get up in the morning, go to the gym, work at respectable jobs, and come home to be kind to their families. Banal, ordinary, evil that fades into the background.

UHub shared a similar story about a Swastika-drawing perp at another station. I have first-hand knowledge that the perp faced zero punishment when IDed, caught, and confronted. Not even a ticket did the perp have to pay. This city is disappointing like that

What does any of that mean? Sorry I don't know that lingo and Google didn't help.

What's being done after anger and hate filled timebombs are arrested by police? After is what I'm more concerned about.

And you don't think this has racist overtones Adam?

It's a reference to Boston Latin School, which has traditionally had a wolf's print sports logo (because their teams are called the Wolfpack).

Can we stop crying wolf and looking for racist overtones under every JP turtle on this page?

Between this and the Swallows of San Juan Capistrano reference in an earlier post you're making yourself look like clowns and cheapening an issue that's very much in evidence for real in very easy to find places. For example, go to any news article or post about "migrants", you'll find plenty of real racism to your hearts' desire.

The puns aren't that bad. At least they relate to the story being posted: Which aren't about migrants in any way, shape, or word. Are you cool with swastika scrawlers @Pete X or do you just want more migrant stories? Have one on me:

Please reread my post. It's not the puns that are bugging me, its the anons calling the posts racist.

And yes, I appreciated that rare Globe article that followed up on the actual community impact of migrants, in stark contrasts to the racists continual ranting about scary migrants.

Probably not. Dog teams seem to usually use a dog's head as a logo. Paw prints are more of a cat team thing.

At least two local teams use a paw print for their canineish teams. Dunno what BU's excuse is.

This guy's cousin: https://www.universalhub.com/crime/20240206/man-sought-racist-homophobe-..., or at the least, his "militia mate." Is it me, or do they both look like they traveled from New Hampshire to plaster Boston with racist/anti-socialist, pro-trump stickers and graffiti?
