Such a tough place to be
Has become a nightmare that gets worse with each following week.
So glad Walsh was able to address Methodone Mile before leaving for DC. Very cool he isn't making it the next mayor's problem.
Walsh was a cancer to Boston. Drove thru Methadone Mile earlier and noticed an uptick in police cruisers there. For someone who advocates for racial equality, he left many minority businesses in the dark. Also, real swell to put a big advertisement for a medical marijuana dispensary in the heart of this epidemic. I wish more Bostonians would get into local politics as oppose to the National sh*tshow every 4 years.
remember when people said Operation Clean Sweep was a bad idea??
What's that got to do with stabbings?
You're kidding right?
around there who have to put up with all this shenanigans but still donated to Mahty.
I got this link from a person that I respect a lot, who has been doing advocacy work to get this addressed. It seems very reasonable to me.

It’s almost as if there isn’t a “safe” injection site being called a “comfort station” (really an open air drug market) being run by the Boston Public Health Commission on Atkinson Street.
Build it and they will come.
