Update.

To be honest, I heard it on the scanner. Sadly, it's usually a good indicator that somebody's died when one police supervisor asks which hospital the victims are going to, and another one answers something like "The viable one is going to ..." (Boston first responders distinguish between victims as "viable" and "non-viable").

It's hard to hear it, sure, but it's even harder being the BPD. Imagine being the people actually seeing this stuff.

I mentioned the scanner only because there seemed to be a question as to where I got my information.

I fully realize that first responders (police, firefighters, EMTs and paramedics) see some horrific things and I don't know how they cope with that and salute them for continuing to serve.

For your eloquence in sending a message to city leaders. The political elite have ignored the plight of inner city blacks and rust belt whites. The biggest fear of the political elite is not Trump it is the fear that the forgotten class of blacks and whites will join together and send the vote for me I'm better than you a message.

Thank you admag
as tears run down my cheeks for all who have lost there and for the Community, please someone help us.
Despite people's beliefs, misconceptions and stereotypes; many people in public housing are honest hard working, loving people for various reasons and some not of their choice live in public housing. And they\we live\lived in public housing does not mean we are on drugs or criminals on the contrary. There many times people who don't live there bring there problems. There is a lot to be done by residents too, however right now most or some are too frieghten and traumatized to move. Please help.
