    God I was in Boston yesturday on Huntington Ave I wish i was there today when that happened. That is Crazy. They are probably the same people going into Northeastern and steeling Laptops and robbing people. I wish Charles Bronson was around. I cant believe that, But you know I never see a Boston cop ever on the streets. Except on Horse back in the common.

      You don’t need the cops. These kind of people that negatively affect our civilized life, you break something on them. Break their arm, their leg or their head. Then I don’t have to worry about my wife walking around. No prison, no fuss, just the good old fear of death at your door.

    The balance is shifting. People are fighting back. “They” tell you not to but it’s your ass in the end.

    I can’t believe that none of the bystanders tried to stop any of the attackers! I am a woman but if I witnessed this I would tackle one of them and try to get other bystanders to do the same. These lowlife worthless street punks need to be stopped. I live one block from there – so now I have to watch my back for some trash to randomly attack me? Guess I’ll start carrying my mace…I’d love to use it on these kids.

    Spy cameras catch the crime, but if no one will step forward to prosecute, what is the worth of seeing a crime in progress?
    Street cameras are just voyeurism at the taxpayer’s expense.

        Tough concept to think out, isn’t it?
        Try to think it through, rather that reverting to using foul words to cover your lack of reasoning abilities for a change.

    guys, you can not retaliate. its the law. if you do, at the minimum you committed a crime and will also be sued. better to just give up the stuff. its going to get a whole lot worse a whole lot sooner than most folks expect. dont wear flash stuff. dont fight back. you most likely will survive. the alternative is very gruesome indeed, to you and your family. poor folks have the government to prosecute you. you on the other hand have to hire your own attorney. aint fair but that is reality.

    As you can see blacks can now attack Whites and Whites will not even help their own kind. You can bet if this situation was reversed blacks would not watch their people get beat. Looks like Whites are just a scared race waiting to be slaughtered.

      Unfortunately you speak the truth. Although many of us will not accept being slaughtered regardless of the consequences! Be Alert, Be Vigilant, Be Armed!
      BTY I was on the trolley today when a group of young females(?) were talking about heading downtown to but their own mace!!! What does that tell you?

  7. mac says:

    not “but” “buy” sorry

    The bystanders that came out from the building saw them pretty clearly as they walked past-how tough can it be to id them. There was a recent program showing how many people walked by as a mock child abduction was going on. So sad that people fear getting involved.
