  1. Reports are this poor kid was killed over a gold chain!!!

    This is why it is so important that people exceeding their Second Amendment Right. The only way to protect yourself from animals like this is to be armed yourself.

    1. 2 AM is a pretty volatile time, but the site of a weapon does make them pause. Maybe long enough for you to get out of there or draw their attention away from you deploying the pepper spray. I can’t believe Massachusetts ban this stuff. I gave some to my nieces for Christmas. One even used it when some bum tried to climb into car.

  2. Arm yourself, even with the best intentions the police can’t get to you in time.
    You’re easy Pickens in gun free zones.

  3. What a tragedy. The expansion of this area may bring in more profits for the city, but sadly also brings in more crime and danger. A young man losing his life over a gold chain is inexplicable. These animals that were caught should be punished to the maximum!

    1. They stopped the maximum years ago. that’s why Michael Dukakis wasn’t elected President.

  4. The evening news ran a story on this senseless crime. I don’t understand why the court system allows the accused the luxury of hiding in a hallway during the arrainment? Their cowards who should never see the light of day ever again.
