      Wow! The acceptance of the police state mentality has grown immensely in Boston since the Marathon!

        we should just lock it down permanently, arrest everyone under 26, confiscate all cookware, guns, sharp or pointy objects, tweezers, shoes, belts, violent video games, hard things, matches and sparklers. then we will finally be safe!

      as long as its not cute white kids or women the media only cares if it has good video or is as horrific as the mattapan massacre but even that has not received much press and i dont know if it got any national press
