Savin Hill break-in suspect should have quit while he was behind, police say

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 21:41:51 +0000

Boston Police report arresting a New Bedford man on charges he broke into a Dorchester home Wednesday afternoon - three days after he was arrested on charge of breaking into a car in the Back Bay.

Police report officers responding to a report of a breaking and entering at 21 South Sydney St., Savin Hill, found Kevin Perry, 37, on Auckland Street not long after. Unluckily for Perry, an occupant of the place he broke into was home at the time and was able to ID him. The "small pair of bolt cutters" police found on Perry did not help his case, and he was charged with breaking and entering in the daytime and, yes, possession of burglarious tools.

Police add officers in the Back Bay had arrested Perry three days earlier for a motor-vehicle break.

Innocent, etc.

Not to be a pill, but there's a dead train at Chestnut Hill

The changing face of UHub today

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 17:52:34 +0000

Seems the module that detects mobile devices has gone bonkers today and is showing the mobile version to lots of desktop users. I think I've fixed that (if you're on a desktop and the site has tons of white space and just looks weird, then I haven't, in which case let me know), but the fix has changed the look of the mobile version (which should still be readable, it's mainly that the headline fonts are different and you may not see the ad you usually see at the top of pages, which may be good for you, not so good for me).

Campaign roundup: Whites think Boston just dandy; blacks not so upbeat

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 15:51:16 +0000

WGBH is out with a poll that claims most Boston voters feel pretty darn good about their Hub and that that should be good news for Marty Walsh's election. But if you read down more than a couple of paragraphs, you see that it's mainly whites who feel that way:

Fully 62 percent of white voters and 67 percent of those with incomes over $100,000 rated the quality of life excellent or very good, compared to just 36 percent of black voters and 49 percent of those with incomes under $60,000.

On the question about Boston being a city for realizing hopes and dreams, more than half of white voters (56 percent) strongly agree, compared to just a third percent of black voters.

Speaking of WGBH, David Berrnstein poses five questions every mayoral candidate should answer (note: You'll have to actually listen to this; no transcript provided).

And as long as we're on a 'GBH roll here, don't forget they'll be holding the last (and second) mayoral debate, at 7 p.m. on Tuesday. Not that many people can fit in their studio, so you can listen to it on 89.7 FM or watch it on Channel 2 or

The Bay State Banner reports Walsh basically went "wha?" when asked why his name is on a bill in the legislature that would help charter schools that he says he opposes.

The Bulletin reports on a forum at-large Councilor Ayanna Pressley held on equity issues involving young girls of color.

A whole lot of state legislators have endorsed at-large Councilor Michelle Wu.

Facebook video leads to arrest of convicted child rapist on charges he masturbated on a Red Line train

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 14:20:57 +0000

Sansone, 52, is a Level 3 sex offender. According to state records, he was convicted of assault on a child with intent to rape and two counts of indecent assault and battery on a child under 14 in 2004, and indecent assault and battery in 1991.

They could call it Amazon Downs

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 13:47:55 +0000
