Do I have to ask?
I'm thinking our first responders may be on edge. Who wouldn't be? I wouldn't be surprised if something goes horribly wrong around here.
The silence on the race of the attackers says a thousand words.
The lack of racial makeup of the group in the report tells me all I need to know.
What on Earth are you talking about? It’s those crazy Amish again!
One person, a teenager with short cropped hair and red sweat shirt, was the most aggressive attacker,
yup. the press/media is never shy about race when it’s a white person.
I have a friend who lives in the Boston area. He sent me a newspaper column in which a white male was the attacker. The noticeable part of the article was that the two opening paragraphs — emphasis: not one but two — said “The white male...” I kid you not.
LOL! Great question. ;-)
A Clockwork Orange.
Where’s Bernie Goetz when you need him?
Often in my thoughts.
Reminds me of the apes and the monolith in 2001 Space Odessey. The specter of civilization is the monolith which has the apes agitated.
On November 1, 2013, Goetz was arrested for allegedly selling $30 worth of marijuana to an undercover female NYPD officer in Union Square. At a December 18, 2013 court appearance he rejected a 10 day community service plea, stating "Either dismiss it, or let's take it to trial and let a jury decide". Outside court Goetz said he offered the undercover female officer the marijuana three times for free but she insisted on paying for it, and that he thought the arresting officer was trying to get him to punch him to escalate the case. At a February 20, 2014 court appearance Goetz again rejected a 10 day community service plea and called on Mayor de Blasio, among other things, to stop all marijuana arrests in NYC for a few months.
Do you mean, are they Amish?
I was wondering whether the readers of this “newspaper” ever call them out on why they go to such pains to avoid mentioning race in stories such as this. Are there letters to the editor on this subject?
Could any Boston Freepers help out here?
Lemme fix that.
One (black) person, a teenager with short cropped (nappy) hair and red (hooded) sweat shirt, was the most aggressive (racist) attacker...
A number of comments raised the question of race. There were a lot of blocked comments as well.
Here, our hero, the State Supported Mainstream Media places their collective heads in a more appropriate orifice that also blocks out all sound, sight and audio.
yup. boston is quickly turning into oakland of the east
Thanks for your response (post 24). It would be incomprehensible if there was no blow-back to The Globe on their reporting. But, as you seem to indicate, they don’t care, they’re going to do it their way until no objections are raised. OK. Fine. And one of these days they’ll have next-to-no readers.
The 9 alarm was caused by a welding crew working nearby, who didn’t have permits or report the fire once they started it. I believe the 8 alarm fire was caused by a car fire which spread to the nearby buildings.
The Globe says three of the attackers are from Mattapan section of Boston. Once a Jewish neighborhood, it was overrun by blacks in the 1960's.
This is from the Glob.. need I say more?
You can now read 10 articles each month for free on BostonGlobe.com.
And why, pray tell would I want to do that?
The Globe says three of the attackers are from Mattapan section of Boston. Once a Jewish neighborhood, it was overrun by blacks in the 1960’s.
Good book on this topic; “Death of an American Jewish Community”. The Federal government created a program to help push unqualified people into owning homes. Local banks and real estate agents then used the program to start a block-busting operation in Mattapan. It worked beyond their wildest expectation; completely destroying a stable neighborhood.
As the sad joke goes... The real estate agents made money. The banks made money. Well, two out of there ain’t bad.
I’m an 81 year old who gave up The Globe last summer after reading it for my entire life.
I’m came close in the 70s when The Globe supported busing,which utterly destroyed The Boston Public Schools. I backed off.
Last summer was it for me——the utter adoration of Obama was the final straw.
Boy, I bet the Globe gets deluged with subscription offers. I guess people just can’t do without their daily lib brainwashing. I’ve noticed many on-line papers have the same pitch....like we just can’t do without subscribing. Where will we get our news from? (snicker)
I gave up on the Globe several years ago. I sort of figured out it wasn’t doing my disposition any good when I would angrily fling the paper down on the recycling pile almost every single morning for some example or other of their blatant bias and liberal world view that just automatically assumes that it is the correct view that any right thinking person would hold.

Thankfully, they’re well on their way. The NYT bought them for $1 billion less than ten years ago. They sold the toilet paper for $50 million last year.
I never thought I’d live to see its demise. I will buy the final edition and frame it.
A few times I hung around Blue Hill Avenue up to 1966 eating at Delis and shooting pool. Then I went to war. I came back in 1968, and the Avenue was filled with burnt out stores once owned by Jews. Blacks were everywhere.
I gave it up decades ago when they took Johnny Hart off the comics.
“We out!” kinda lends itself as to the amishness or not.
Are the sewers in Boston flooded? Sounds like the street rats are coming up for fresh air again.
“Are the sewers in Boston flooded? Sounds like the street rats are coming up for fresh air again.”......
I know, I know, that sounds RACIST. (It was meant to be)
I beg to differ - they were provoked in the worst sort of way by the Obama's, Holders, Sharptons, Jacksons, etc.,....
The Chuck Turner carfuffle did it for me.
...a group of up to 20 males and females launched at least six unprovoked attacks on people on Boston Common and in the neighborhoodIf memory serves, the Common is quite near the New State House. Thanks ConservativeStatement.
LOL When I read the article, I thought the same thing.
Sounds like “they” were relieved it was finally whites.
