Is that something we are supposed to be proud of?

That it was “the first murder in a week”? Not trying to attack or troll but actually genuinely curious about the purpose of including that.

I think it can be said without irony that not having a murder in the space of a week in Boston was notable given how bad the past few weeks have been.

Are there social workers getting swamped with these calls

If, perhaps, you'd stop playing a PoS for a minute, you could look up how trauma specialists come into play in a situation like this - for family members, neighbors, friends, etc.

I worked for the city with social workers, clinicians, you name it. Ineffective, ineffective, ineffective.

A simple browsing of your post history gives a pretty clear picture of what you’re about. It ain’t pretty.

Asking because it seems there have been many more gunshots this year, but they only seem to be reported if they hurt or kill someone.

At least two shots fired on Tremont and Aguadilla around 4 am and no reports of it. (Not fireworks- BPD was looking for evidence after).

Thanks for covering the news no one else covers.
