Earlier today one of our bloggers published this blog about the guy who got shot in the face after being robbed at 2 AM on Water Street. First of all, it might be the most bad ass story we’ve ever heard. How do you get shot in the face and still call the cops? That’s some Rambo shit right there. Unbreakable.
Anyway, the gist of the blog was that according to the victim there were some racial motivations for this shooting:
Anyway, Wacky Walter Bird over at the Worcester Magazine wrote an article today kissing City Manager Ed Augustus’ ass. If you want a good laugh then read this. He makes a bunch of excuses for Fast Eddie’s gross incompetence, but nothing stood out more than when he basically said that the victim in this shooting incident is a gang member:
Yes, a man was recently shot in the face on Water Street. To hear some tell it, residents should be very afraid. What they won’t tell you is, according to city sources, there was more to that shooting than meets the eye. In other words, here is the real truth: unless you are involved in gangs, drugs or some other inherently violent activity, your chances of being victimized by random gun violence in Worcester are not great.
Translation – the victim was in a gang, because only gang members and drug dealers get shot in Worcester. Seriously, this is what masquerades as journalism in Worcester. Walter Bird heard that there was “more to this shooting than meets the eyes.” He heard this from “city sources” that he does not name or cite. In other words, he is lying and made it up because he’s trying to cover for his crooked friends Ed Augustus and Joe Petty. If he kisses their ass enough he might get a do-nothing job with Lenny Z. They need to advance the narrative that only gangstas get shot, and Worcester is safe for law abiding folk who mind their own business. So they have one of their coffee boys feed this “information” to Walter and he prints it.
Meanwhile they’re defaming a man who just got shot in the face. Literally. How is this OK? How has Walter Bird not apologized for insinuating that a victim of gun violence is involved in gang/drug activity? How much of a scumbag is he? Businesses pay money to have their ads go unseen in Wacky Walter’s trashy libelous free magazine. You have to feel bad for them because they’re unknowingly financing this trash. It’s why we always throw Worcester Magazine in the trash whenever we see it:
