Starting with the shootout at Forest Hills, a stabbing at Stony Brook and now a stabbing at Jackson station. My cousin told me that a cop was beaten up at Ruggles station this afternoon. What is going on?
What? A cop got beat up at Ruggles? Anymore details?
Orange line choice when i lived in JP/ hyde square:
Get off at Jackson and deal with the project thugs at Heath street and Mozart Park gangstas OR risk getting mugged at gunpoint when walking from Stony Brook. I guess things haven't changed much since i moved to Dorchester. I feel much safer now.
Give me a break.... I live right between Jackson Square and Stonybrook and It's and incredibly safe area. Random crime is virtually non-existent. If the gangbangers want to kill each other that's on them.
...and who said the victim is a "gangbanger"? What a bunch of racist BS.
No one said a word about race except you assuming that gang members are minorities.

Actually he was not a gangbuster he was someone's son, brother, grandson, cousin. If you have nothing good to say be quite.
Every other person I pass on the streets has a gun, has been mugged, or is in the act of mugging someone.
It's like the wild west out here!
or not. In any case--it's not that bad, for Pete's sake. Not perfect, without a doubt, but nothing like what it was twenty years ago.
I pray and work with the hope that one day Boston will experience the Boston miracle again. Not only the Boston miracle but nobody gets harmed or hurt for a great period of time with the ultimate goal of total peace and harmony across our great city. My prayers go out to the survivor of this incident. The reasons of why this happened at this juncture maybe concerns of others, respectfully. My wish regardless of the reasons or why this person was harm survives and recovers from his horrible injuries.
But let's fight gentrification....
The child was 17. He was a student of mine. He wasn't In a gang. He did not deserve his young life stolen from him.
He certainly did not. I guess it's frustrating for people who are on the periphery of this violence not to react angrily because we can't understand where on earth its coming from. What kind of cultural pathology is causing this? Or if it's not that, is it simply having thousands of kids on the T at the same hour with no one brave enough to manage them? At about 3:30 at Green Street Station, on the rare occasion I am there at that hour, I see packs of teens acting like assholes, jumping onto the track, and menacing others--mostly each other. Can't the school assign authority figures to go down there as the kids leave school?
'Can't the schools...' Now, that is rich. Last year an already perfectly overwhelmed BPS saw crushing budget cuts across the boards. Single high schools that already had 31 in a classroom peppered with various language learners and students with special needs who offered Xerox copies in place of books saw more than one million dollars cut from their individual budgets while the well proven-to-not-work-at-all for profit charter school program got a huge bolstering in public funding. These schools that lost 25 + teachers, counsellors, sports and music programs needed large sums of money to properly serve these children before these cuts. So, yeah... maybe we should look elsewhere for someone to patrol T stations. For the record, MANY teachers and administrators do follow students to bus and T stops to try and insure their safety despite this (obviously) not being part of the job description.
Honestly there is no controlling the students once they've left the school and unfortunately many of them act like wild animals at these stations. Deploying teachers and or other adults to supervise them wouldn't work because of so many kids at that time. What I'll never understand for the life of me is not having a police presence at every station during the hours from when the kids leave school up until about 6pm. All the cop details around the city you mean you can't deploy more officers to prevent more violence. My students name was Mason Ramon. Good kid. Full of life and energy. They say the 16 year old who stabbed him to death was waiting at the station for him. Now if police were present this would be avoided. For all the comments about thugs and gangsters getting shot. I'm a teacher with his masters degree who was shot in the back of the head while at northeastern in 2009. So let's stop saying every time it happens it was because we are all in gangs in this city. Bad things do happen to good people no matter how much we try to avoid them
It begins at home, our homes no matter where you live, it begins at home. Our children are taught what they know and see. RESPECT, MANNERS, RULES & CONSEQUENCES these are the rules of life where you will be successful or a failure. When children are sent into the world they should be sent with respect, when children enter school, they should have respect and manner intacted, it is not the school and teachers job to raise your children, but to educate them. Most of these children/teens are anger, they feel unloved, abandon so they have the mentality that why should I care nobody cares about me, they don't even stop and think if I shoot or stab this person, I'm going to jail, my life is over and I took someones life over something as stupid as what neighborhood your from, or they don't like someone. Society has to make a big change it doesn't matter if you live in the projects or the suburbs, it begins at home, teach our children their worth send them in the world with RESPECT, MANNERS, RULES AND CONSEQUENCES, not you don't have to listen to anyone but me and see the path change.
No young life should end like that. And no--judging from so many similar incidents, we shouldn't make assumptions about the victim. Being a "good kid" in a tough neighborhood or school can be a very tough road.
Where are the Longwood Special Police Officers?
This isn't in Longwood. This is a good two miles from Longwood, 1.5 from the Longwood Medical Area.
People get confused. Longwood Security Special Police Officers do not work in the Longwood Medical Area. They patrol all parts of the hood just like the Boston Police do but they do not get any special preferences on the civil service exams or the pay and benefits that BPD receive and they risk their lives everyday too. Its even more dangerous then being a Boston Cop.
