Fights break out at Carson Beach
Boston Globe ^

Posted on 05/31/2011 7:16:12 AM PDT by outpostinmass2

Fights broke out among rival gang members on Carson Beach in South Boston yesterday and spilled out across the city, triggering a massive law enforcement response from at least five agencies to stem the violence.

Police said the gang members are part of a group of more than 1,000 youths who have used social media sites like Facebook to plan unruly gatherings on the beach on three of the past four nights. The beach falls under the jurisdiction of the State Police, who have been unable to prevent the violence.

The response yesterday resembled crowd-control tactics reserved for major sporting victories.

State Police were already on edge, after a trooper was accosted Sunday night by members of the group. The trooper chased one of the youths, who ran, clutching the waistband of his shorts “consistent with the manner in which a person with a gun would hold it,’’ said David Procopio, a spokesman for the State Police.

Yesterday, the beach, located steps away from the South Boston State Police barracks, attracted thousands of families and other Memorial Day revelers gathered for the unofficial start of summer. While the majority of the crowd was peaceful, the unruly youths again gathered at the beach and in nearby parking lots.

I was dropping off something to a friend who lives in the neighborhood yesterday afternoon. I noticed five Boston Police Cruisers heading over to the beach. From what I have heard is that these fights happened every day last weekend starting Friday night. A State Police officer that first responed to the fights said that most of the fights were between girls. P.S. there is a State Police Barracks right next to the beach where the fighting took place. Talk about brazen.

Or consistent with the manner with which a guy who wears his pants around his knees would have to in order to run at all.

With the high unemployment rate among young people, they will be bored and full of booze for sure.

Careful, there is a really nasty-mouthed guy on this site that does not like that joke at all.

combat_boots and I received this message from him:

Yes people like you pretend to be above it all when you are really just covering up for your latent homosexuality.

Just a warning, the guy seems to have issues.

Nope, not all civilization..

Just easily defined, and easily profiled, demographic sectors of it.

Move to a rural, fenced property.
Get your CCHL and carry when you have to go retailing.
Limit your need for retail purchases.

We don’t have these problems. Shutting down the hip-hop club fixed what few problems we did have.

This is more of a Red-Blue issue than a Black-White issue.

I’m almost there..no CCHL yet but do have the means to protect the home. No need for malls or cities, even larger towns...can do a lot of the shopping online or nearby small towns. Big Belgian Malinois that likes to sit on top of his crate and look out the front window. He’s a marshmallow but strangers don’t know that. He travels with me a lot.

When unemployment is at the highest levels for young people since the 1930s depression, violence is going to break out among the disenfranchised young people. You folks young and old that voted for Obama are getting just what you voted for!!! How’s that for hope & change?

I think the media first tried to report this as “a Democracy movement.”

Yep. Obama’s SA militia meant to cow all the taxpayers both libs and cons. In Chicago the powers to be will spend more time monitoring “racial attitudes” of the white libs then making the beaches a safe place. Its all about power.
