if you know of the area, its not like you can't imagine it happening there. Also, where have you been? These incidents happen in every city and involve public transit workers all the same.

Most incidents these days are recorded by civilians of CCTV's on the vehicles, but its been happening. My family have plenty of stories on the L train back in the day.

It may be one I want to avoid for a few days.

My guess is there'll be a huge police presence.

if you lived here, or if you read the Globe's 68 blocks, or even if you only watched Boston's Finest last week, you would know that this area is a hotbed of gangsta activity, esp. now that the weather is getting warmer.

The victim was w/ two teenagers--doesn't really matter how young or innocent they are, Norton St. is where Nicholas Fomby Davis, by all accounts an honestly decent kid, lived--in 2010 he was pulled off his brother's scooter and executed in cold blood, just a little down the road.

it's who you hang with, what your brothers/cousins are involved in, which side of the street you live on.

Yes Granny was an innocent victim lucky to be alive, but there is no coincidence about this location--this is just the next chapter of the story...

If you really think about it, even though theres alot of "gangs" and violence here, The area is filled with Alot of good hard working people and students. For some reason we let a small number of people hold the entire neighborhood hostage. People are scared to get shot so i understand sometimes why more people dont stand up and say something. but how long can that be an excuse, how long do you let a stupid thing like "stop snitching" hold so much weight. Obviously the people doing the shooting dont care about these neighborhoods no matter how much they think their "representing" and they shouldnt be allowed to dictate for everyone else.
