As the Worcester Summer of Love continues, the city continues to turn into a steaming pile of poo. Last night there were seven reports of stolen vehicles. Ya got that? Not one, not two….Goddamn SEVEN. And while it was going on there was an impromptu crime meeting in the swanky part of town on Salisbury Street. The JCC was jam packed with West Siders who were none too pleased about the fact that there was a double shooting on Flagg Street, and this poor family had this happen
The thing about crime crossing Park Ave is, people on the West Side don’t put up with that shit. And rightfully so. The West Side is what keeps Worcester from turning into Lawrence. But almost every person who we spoke with that attended this meeting agreed that the meeting was epic clusterfuck. Here’s an awesome email we got….
The monitor was none other than Barri Boyer, shit I thought she was dead. She did not have a gavel but a fucking COW BELL. Shit I thought I was at a Hockey game, but no fight broke out.
Her side kick Paul Giorgio was there also. Place was packed, ran out of chairs, ran out of space to stand, still 25-35 listened in the halls.
That’s all we basically do, listen. For over half the meeting we heard all the good things everyone was doing for the kids in Worcester. But hey shit were not here for the good kids, it’s the assholes that don’t do any of these programs. What are you doing to them? Stop cutting deals for lesser sentences, Early is not Monty Hall and this is not Lets make a deal. Put these little douchebags away and have them get some tough love from their cellmate BUBBA.
All it was was a campaign event, the word was steady as she goes, we’re working on it. We can’t be all places at all times. We need the communities help. YA right. They put these god damn silly crime watch sign on light poles in my neighborhood and the only ones that read them are new families looking for a home. The signs just scare the people away and drop the value 10-20 % because how the hell would want to pay good cash money and hock 30 years of their life to live in a neighborhood that has a CRIME problem.
Fucking waste of time. I suppose I was to leave the meeting and say…. Oh I feel safe now. Easy for Petty to say. He lives so close to the border that if he rolled out of bed the wrong way he would be in Holden. If he feels safe, he should put his kids in public schools.
God bless you angry turtle rider. We feel your pain. Jumpin Joe and the crew are the kings of telling you what they think you wanna hear. That shit might work at City Council meetings or the old folks home, but this is the West Side. We know bullshit when we see it. From the Telegram:
They also assured the crowd of more than 100 people, spilling over into the hallway that statistically, break-ins have been declining in the city overall. The police chief said in the 1990s, a study found the city on average had 4,000 cases of breaking and entering each year. The number dropped to less than 1,000 in the early 2000s. In 2013, Chief Gemme said that number was at 2,200 and there was a 24 percent decrease the following year, with 1,600 burglaries. He said this year is “on pace” with last year.
Hey politicians, I want you to stop doing what you’re doing and listen, because this is really, really important. NO ONE GIVES A FUCK ABOUT YOUR STUPID CHARTS!! We’re sick of charts, graphs, and data. Melinda Boone can take her charts about graduation rates and shove them up Joe Petty’s ass because they’re meaningless. Data can be manipulated to make any poopsmoocher look good.
Then of course Boom-Boom had to show up and turn it into her usual bullshit:
Worcester State University professor Sonya Conner, charged earlier this year with blocking traffic in a Black Lives Matter demonstration at Kelley Square, said she believes poverty, not drugs, leads to crime.
Hey Boom-Boom, no one gives a shit what you think. The only criminal in the room last night was you. No one was there to discuss the millions of factors that lead to crime. We know what the factors are. We’ve been throwing money at poverty for decades now and it doesn’t fix shit. We accept the fact that there will always be drugs, poverty, and crime. We just wanna figure out a way to minimize the damage. I’d much rather invest in more jail cells than I would in whatever bullshit you and your fantastic friends from the circlejerk are trying to sell us.
Some residents shared negative experiences with reporting crime to the Police Department – remarks which were typically cut off by the ringing of a cowbell.
Seriously? A fucking cow bell? That’s all you really needed to hear about this meeting. The woman running it was using a cow bell. By default the entire meeting was a joke.
Then they threw this gem in at the end:
He said invasions are rarely random and are typically related to “drug rip-offs,” most often involving marijuana.“People say, ‘What’s wrong with a little marijuana deal?’” Mr. Early added. “This is exactly what’s wrong.”
Oh shut the fuck up Joe Early. Give me a fucking break. Did he really try to turn this meeting into the latest episode of Reefer Madness? Hey Joe, you know why gang bangers are robbing each other over weed? Because it’s illegal. And when things are illegal, the bad guys sell it. See Prohibition 1919-1933 for more details on that.
You know who’s not shooting each other? The owners of Mass Liquors and Austin Liquors. Because they’re both selling a legal product. When you make that harmless plant legal, people will stop killing each other over the right to sell it.
The bottom line is they just don’t get it. They really thought they could come into the JCC, toss a bunch of graphs out there and blame everything on marijuana, and everyone would leave satisfied. But the whole reason the city officials were even there is because these people aren’t stupid. This lady right here
isn’t taking your bullshit. They pay the vast majority of property taxes in the city and they vote more than anyone else. When you do those two things elected leaders have to listen to you. Clearly Jumpin Joe and Fast Eddy didn’t get the message. Hopefully everyone in that room did though, and votes the Turtleboy Ticket in November.
