Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!
I knew that name sounded familiar. IIRC, you reported on the same person who allegedly threw a woman from her wheelchair then kicked her in the head in November (sorry not good with posting links on my phone).
What a winner. Smh.
Good Job Officer
Ashmont station is safer thanks to your efforts.
