Double edge sword. I applaud the fact that he knew kids everywhere would blindly and naively seeRead More the cover of rolling stone and be affected by it in a way that supports and encourages and dare I say, idolizes a terrorist. On the other end, he broke the law and there's WAY too much of that getting swept under the rug. At the end of the day I'm happy he did it. The image of him bloody is more shocking than that ridiculous picture on RS. I think regardless of how much exposure he got, it worked for the greater good.

Ric Brehm March 31, 2014 at 08:27 am
Local Boy, this sinkhole was caused by rain runoff. Those wonderful building engineers who designedRead More that property are at fault. By changing the drainage pattern on that property (181-191 Wyman St) and installing a decorative stone wall along the property line, those BRILLIANT engineers gave the runoff nowhere to go so it ate away at the ground at the base of said wall and created a runoff tunnel beneath it. The ensuing erosion of soil under the roadway caused the sinkhole to open up filling it with runoff from the property above. The city should sue the land developers for repair of the problem and damage done to the city owned street!
Local Boy March 31, 2014 at 09:28 am
Geez Ric. Take it easy man. A road had some weather damage. Every big street I know of has beenRead More shredded by this last winter. Dig it up and fix it.
Jim Mangan March 31, 2014 at 09:48 am
Ric, the work that was being done was to add sidewalks along the length of Wyman St. That whole areaRead More was dug up to reroute drainage. These issues occurred a few years ago when the rains hit before the ground fully thaws. The rain hits solid ground and starts flowing to find a soft patch it can drain into.

God bless these men who ran in to save lives. They had to run in while everyone else had to run out. I hope these men's families are well cared for. If not, then let's make sure they are.

So Bosotn Fire just reported that the fire was started by welders working next door at 296 BeaconRead More St. Welders, working without a permit, and no aplication on file for a permit, so no fire detail there during the work being done, on a day with 50mph+ winds. Which I'm sure would not have been allowed on that day had a permit tried to be pulled because of those winds. So our brothers died that day because some company and building owner we're to frigin ignorant to follow laws. Absoulte BULLSHIT.

Im sure this ' ohhh he's a big time drug dealer'! When you die, you are a nice guy, but if he was alive he was going to be the subject of gossip! It hurts, but sorry its the truth
Karen Walz March 28, 2014 at 09:46 pm
There was no good ending to this situation. There was very bad decision-making coupled withRead More violence and unpredictability. I think it's fair to say that there could have been arrests all around, among all the participants. I was, frankly, initially shocked to find out that it was a set-up. But that seems to be the case. The only hope, I guess, is for this to act as a warning to any other teen/young adult who considers any of this illegal activity as part of their "lifestyle," even if they foolishly imagine they're being heroic by "avenging" a friend or loved one.
