As we reported on Facebook last night, the Summer of Love has claimed it’s first truly innocent victim – a three year old child from Plumley Village. He and a 28 year old woman were shot last night around 8:30 in what will almost definitely be identified as a gang related shooting. Unfortunately we’ve been saying this would happen for the past several weeks. Worcester gangstas have terrible aim and it was only a matter of time until an innocent bystander got hit by a stray bullet. Unfortunately it had to be a three year old child. Terrible.
The bottom line is this. Turtleboy Spotes is politely requesting that both Ed Augustus and Joe Petty to resign as City Manager and Mayor of Worcester. Their inaction and denial is directly responsible for this child being shot. They have wasted hundreds of thousands in tax payer dollars hosting DOJ meetings because RBG and Wanda don’t like a fucking blog. Meanwhile, they continue to feed us statistics about how Worcester is relatively safe compared other cities.
Newsflash – no one gives a fuck about your stupid statistics about other cities. We care about Worcester. And in Worcester three year olds are getting shot for no reason. Yet just yesterday in the Telegram and Gazette, City Manager Ed Augustus thought it would be a good time to go ahead and write this in an op-ed:
“Increased police presence will help, but we know we can’t arrest our way out of the problem. Worcester remains a safe place to live, work, and play.”
Worcester is a safe place to live….unless you’re a poor kid growing up in Plumley Village. In that case you can go fuck yourself because Ed Augustus doesn’t have to sleep in that neighborhood so he assumes it’s as safe as where he lives.
Enough is enough. We’ve been preaching about these crooks and gutless politicians for months and we’ve finally reached our breaking point. As the most influential and widely read news source in the city we demand that Joe Petty and Ed Augustus immediately resign. It’s nothing personal, but this is now an emergency. Because of their gross incompetence and failure to take necessary action, a child is fighting for his life tonight. Enough is enough. Step down and let people who actually care about their city implement a safety plan that allows police to do their jobs.
