Certain media outlets are saying the attacks happened inside the station other outlets are saying the attacks occurred near the station. The MBTA is having a lot of credibility issues lately so I hope they can explain that none of these attacks occurred on MBTA property.

Who is in charge of making downtown Boston safer? Isn't BPD headquarters 5 minute ride away?

Also why their press release capitalizes Male but not female?

Female and male are adjectives, never nouns.

And if you’ve not asked the person their gender, the description should be feminine-presenting, masculine-presenting, androgynous-presenting, etc. Same with racial categories. Policing relies on dehumanizing suspects and victims though, so they don’t go with best practices on these sorts of things.
