Even back in the 80s we left the car doors unlocked. Hell, when I was in first grade I walked to school by myself because it was safe. Comprised of mostly working class Irish & Italian-American... family-oriented Catholics. It was such a nice town... so much history and just an overall good place to live. This kind of thing NEVER happened.
It’s a whole different place now... filled with thugs who deal heroin and meth. Once they let in all the Section 8 sub-humans in the late 90s, everything started to go to s***.
Makes me so flippin mad because my mom still lives there...
“Weymouth Detectives arrested two men allegedly involved in a heroin transaction on Thursday, one of which is known as a dealer around the South Shore.
Police identified the suspects as Rainel Feliz-Perez, 20, of 33 Fessenden Street, Boston and Christopher M. Taylor, 34, of 736 Washington Street, Weymouth.
Weymouth Police Captain Richard Fuller said detectives had information about drug activity occurring at 118 Pierce Road in Weymouth involving Taylor and information regarding Feliz-Perez distributing heroin around the South Shore.
Weymouth Police observed Feliz-Perez pull up to 118 Pierce Road, which is not far from Weymouth Landing, and observed Taylor enter the vehicle, while monitoring the location on Wednesday at approximately 3:15 p.m.
After witnessing a drug transaction, police approached Taylor as he walked away from the vehicle. He quickly attempted to swallow several bags of heroin but was unsuccessful, Fuller said.”
What a hellhole. Poor Weymouth.
Lived in east Weymouth from 70-75. Kids were born at south shore hospital. Great middle class American town. Sounds like it went to hell. Damn.
