Whatever they do, it is working, statistically speaking.

that article reports a misleading statistic of shooting where there are victims, either fatal or non-fatal. this type of reporting is inherently inaccurate since how do you if someone was shot if they aren't present when police arrive, or they locate a body.

all in all, the reported definition of "shootings" being down is entirely misleading and in no way captures the actual gunfire taking place every day in bost. by contrast, the city does keep track of how many shots were fired. it is located here and they map the locations.

to date, there have been 640 incidents of shots being fired in boston so far this year. thats over 3 shootings a night. and as you can see from the map, the gunfire is situated in a very dense corridor probably 2 or 3 square miles.

You really should think more about the community as a whole before making a statement like that.

10 people shot in an absolute bloodbath of a weekend in early July. This is working for you?

First and foremost RIP. She was a mother. Not sure what happened and as sad as it is, not sure what, if anything can be done to prevent things like this from happening.
