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 thisHe 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:

    Welp let me do a clive and race bait. Talk about hypocrite.

  • June 28, 2016 at 10:59 am

    And what did the gunman say? Give me all your money whiteboy! Doesn’t even sound right. Because someone putting antifreeze in their ride at 2:30am, looks like he has a lot of cash on him. How pathetic he made this a race thing.

    Allow me to put this in Turtle Boy speak: Only a moron would believe that this shooting was a random act.

    Let’s see… working on a car at 2:25 in the morning? Yep, that’s completely normal. Because everyone works on their cars at 2:25 AM. The victim obviously saw the suspect because he supposedly gave the perp his wallet AND he was alert enough to phone the police, yet no suspect description? Do I really have to spell it out for you?

    Athe city already offered Walter a job. He turned it down to get promoted to Editor at WoMag.

    Facts are stubborn things.

    Don’t guess, speculate or rely on some girls facebook post for facts- research it! Get a statement from WPD, or on deep background from them.

    Worcester Magazine was popular back in 1980. Obviously still around, since some are making money from it. Even though, one would think that’s impossible now.

    This asshole knows who shot him and it was not because he is a whiteboy his story is a l lie and if police can see the film from all the cameras on water street he will have some explaining to do he was with the people who shot him it wasn’t a robbery and don’t feel bad for him just google his name and see what a scum bag he is. Turtleboy get your facts straight before you publish shit

      OK, so I’m jeremys wife… I don’t appreciate your assumptions WE’VE BEEN THROUGH HELL THIS WEEK. My husband did ALOT of stupid things in his past but he didn’t deserve this! He is one of the few who has turned his life around from where he used to be. It was random and you will see once the investigation is completed by the wpd (who by the way is doing a wonderful job. )We have a beautiful family. Jeremy works so hard everyday to provide for us and is a wonderful father and husband. He was out for a few drinks with coworkers, and was on his way home..his car overheats and he was putting antifreeze freeze in it- got robbed and shot End of story.. so please stop with the speculation and try and have some compassion.

        So he turned his life around, but is out at 2am with a car that is having problems. I’m assuming he had that antifreeze with him at the time of the alleged incident. If there was in fact, car trouble at all, lol. Sounds like he’s still doing stupid things. Guess what, if he was home with you at 2am, whatever happened, would not have. Doesn’t matter what we think on this blog, but Worcester is very small, and the streets seem to already know.

    Sounds like TB is butthurt because Womag got the real scoop! For someone who claims to have multiple LE sources and somehow gets the story wrong, sour grapes TB!

    I’m really hoping we can get to the bottom of this case. For the first time, I’m not 100% with turtle boy! I don’t agree with this idiot above, who writes for a free paper people only grab when they are drunk, but something still isn’t adding up. A person who has enough wits about him to get shot in the face and is able to call the cops himself, didn’t get a decent description of the guy?? And he was by himself, no friends, at 2:25am?
