oh boy

What in the world is happening in Somerville? Now we have eigth graders stabbing people after school. What a disgrace! I hope the courts do the right thing and teach this kid a lesson. He shouldn't be allowed in Somerville schools anymore.

What a disgrace and breakdown in public trust this is!

Who is responsible for the cover up regarding this story! Why wasn't the public made aware of this situation when it happened? Why weren't other parents warned about this? We need answers and we need them right now! Did the mayor know about this? Did the police chief know about this? Did our ward Alderman know about this? What a disgrace and breakdown in public trust this is!

WOW! Can you believe you cant even send your child to elementary school anymore. If I were this father of that child I would sue tha balls off the police department for not taking a more active roll in protecting this boy, and the school department for not making the schools safer by weeding out these ILLEGAL BORDER CROSSING BASTARDS!! As for our illustrious Mayor you suck too!

The MS-13 GANG BANGERS that are slowly taking over our community have to be stopped. There has to be a way to exterminate them like the cockroaches they are. My poor grandmother won't even leave the house for groceries in fear of them robbing her and shoving her to the ground for her pocketbook like they did to her friend last year. She has to call for a ride to go to the corner store. Why have police departments lets just arm up like the old western days, and shoot on sight. We have a US Congressman (Capuano) from our city that could give 2 shits what goes on here. If he were so concerned he would send the feds here to help in the extermination. HEY MIKE!! TIP ONIEL SAID ALL POLITICS IS LOCAL. “ We will remember in November”!

??!

This story makes it sound like the threat against this boys' life was ignored by both the school and the police. I'd like to know if this is true, because if so, it's a disgrace. And as the person above said, the father could probably file a lawsuit against the city. Does anyone know more about the steps taken to 1)find and punish the person who wrote the note and 2) ensure that this student would be safe in school as well as enroute.

Why wasn't a plainclothes officer assigned to follow this boy from, and to his, home??? I don't want to hear any BS about staffing problems or $$$$. City officials find money for the things that are important to them, well what is more important than protecting a young boy's life??????? It doesn't take a genius to know that it was more likely that this boy was going to be attacked outside of school.

ED: The problem is that the MS-13 gang has been around long enough to extend to another generation. Many of the young kids in this gang are US citizens of central american decent.

ED

Well if thats true and they (THE MS-13 GANG) have been around that long then that tells me that the law enforcement have been sitting on their ass's much too long now, and it's comming around to bite us in the ass. Maybe when a law officer's or maybe the Mayor's OR our Congressman's child gets whacked somthing will get done. GIVE US A BREAK!!!

"Two weeks before the incident the boy found a threatening note on his desk at school that said, "I'll kill you" and was signed "MS-13," the father said. School officials and a police officer assigned to the building were alerted to the threat but, according to the father, did little to prevent it."

Was the officer actually on-site, at the school, each day since the young man received the note? That is what I infer from that information.

However, the following information from the article about the PTA president's comments, implies that there was no officer on-site.

"The victim then turn(sic) and ran back to the school where he approached the principal and the police were called, police said."

Along with the Journal's information: "On Feb. 26 at 2:34 p.m., Officer Sean Sylvester responded to the Winter Hill Community School after a call regarding a student who had been stabbed and met with the victim, principal and vice-principal."

Can anyone provide the accurate details?
