    The officer said the man, who'd quietly refused to pay his bill, became loud and obnoxious when officers arrived. When one officer, speaking to him in Spanish, told him he would be pat frisked, he allegedly slurred: "If I had a gun, I would've shot you, you guys would already be dead."

    The mother of the 6-year-old boy who was wounded by gunfire in Roxbury lashed out at Mayor Martin J. Walsh last night, calling him a “liar” and insisting her son’s father was not the intended target of Sunday night’s shooting. “Mayor Walsh is a liar,” the mother told the Herald during a brief phone conversation from Boston Medical Center, where her son is hospitalized. “He lied about my kid’s father that he said that he was a target, when he was not a target. We were innocent bystanders. He did not say that. He didn’t speak to him at all.”

    "Sib Hashian -- the drummer for the rock group Boston -- died after collapsing onstage Wednesday night ... TMZ has learned. Sib's son, Adam, tells us the drummer was on the Legends of Rock Cruise and was midset when he suddenly collapsed. A witness says CPR was performed and a defibrillator was used but to no avail. The L.O.R. Cruise began on March 18 in Florida and had stops in several places including Puerto Rico and the Bahamas. We're told the cruise will continue and other musicians are performing tributes to Sib on the boat Thursday. The drummer -- who...

    LGBTQ activists threatened "large-scale violence," rioting and "possible deaths" if they were not allowed to participate in Sunday's St. Patrick’s Day Parade, parade organizers said. According to parade officials, Boston Police said homosexuals bused in from other states to "disrupt" the festivities were a serious threat unless Catholic organizers permitted a gay veterans group in the parade. Police not only determined the gay threats were "credible" but warned that they would not guarantee the safety of the public, including children. It was also implied that organizers would be responsible if gay violence erupted. Faced with the threat of "large-scale" gay...

    A 32-year-old computer whiz who was raised in Stoughton is suspected of using the high-tech skills he honed at Hub colleges to spread the bloodthirsty message of ISIS terrorists on social media, according to a Herald source and news reports. Ahmad Abousamra — who was educated at Northeastern University and UMass Boston — had already been placed on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists list last year with a $50,000 reward offered for information leading to his capture and return. The FBI said Abousamra “has shown that he wants to kill United States soldiers.” He is now believed to be a...

    A gay veterans group said Wednesday it has been denied permission to march in this year’s Boston St. Patrick’s Day parade just two years after organizers made the groundbreaking decision to allow gay groups to participate for the first time. OutVets, which marched in Boston’s 2015 St. Patrick’s Day parade after decades of resistance from organizers, said on its Facebook page that the reason for the denial to this year’s parade is unclear, but “one can only assume it’s because we are LGBTQ.”

    The Daily Caller ^ | February 17, 2017 | Phillip Stucky
    The group Not My President’s Day announced a rally scheduled for Monday in Boston had to be canceled, according to a statement Thursday. The rally would have been in the Boston Common from 12 p.m. until 4 p.m. EST. The group announced it was not granted a permit, but it’s also worth noting that only 173 of the 1,200 individuals invited to the event said they planned on attending. “We were unable to get a permit in time for the rally, so officially, we’re not hosting an event in Boston. However, we do have one planned in NYC!” The official...

    BOSTON (CBS) – An immigrant worker at Logan Airport says his dream of becoming a U.S. citizen was stolen. In January he received a notice in the mail inviting him to a naturalization ceremony. He brought his mother. “This was like the end of it all. I was really proud. It was at the JFK library,” the employee said. The man spoke to WBZ-TV on the condition of anonymity because of what happened next. “They check this list and realize my name is not on there and they’re like, ‘You’re going to have to leave. Somebody’s going to have to...

    Smart economists never predict the stock market. Our theory tells us that it's impossible. Leaving aside inside information, everyone already knows what we know and has traded on this old news and moved stock prices accordingly. Princeton economist Burton Malkiel popularized this point in his famous book A Random Walk Down Wall Street. The fact that only "new news," things that people don't yet know or expect, should change stock prices means that stock movements are supposed to be random — that is, unpredictable.
  • Boston Is a Shooters’ Paradise [ 96% of Gunmen never arrested]

    02/12/2017 8:18:11 PM PST · by NoLibZone · 20 replies
    More than 96 percent of gunmen involved in non-fatal shootings are never arrested in Boston. The cops know it—but will they do anything about it? In response to such low numbers, officials at the BPD and the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office smile and claim they’re doing just fine. Non-fatal shootings are tough cases to solve, they argue, usually occurring outdoors, where it’s difficult to locate physical evidence. The task is made even harder, police say, because witnesses generally refuse to cooperate and help identify shooters. No matter how you parse the numbers, though, one thing has become alarmingly clear:...

    If Gov. Charlie Baker really wants to prove his anti-Donald Trump street cred, he'll open the State House to illegal immigrants. That way he can help deal with the overflow of all the illegals who will seek sanctuary from deportation in Boston Mayor Marty Walsh's City Hall. The mayor, who went ballistic over the temporary initiation of extreme vetting of refugees and immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim countries, invited threatened illegal immigrants to seek safety in City Hall

    It's snowing here in Connecticut. I did not have to show at my New York City job because apparently I am "non-essential." So I'm doing conference calls from home and I'm very quickly responding to emails in order to prove that I am always available, even in the face of a historic blizzard, of the type that we have not seen in these parts since the Obama Administration. The wife has on the television the obligatory "wall-to-wall" coverage that the local stations always subject us to during these "very dangerous" weather events.

    Most people thought the Falcons had beaten the Patriots. Including the leading newspaper in Boston. Via Field Yates of ESPN.com, an early edition of the Boston Globe declared victory for the Falcons with a headline that proclaimed: A Bitter End. Appearing under that was a photo of Falcons defensive back Robert Alford returning an interception from Patriots quarterback Tom Brady to the end zone for a touchdown that put Atlanta ahead 21-0 in the first half. New England eventually would trail 28-3 in the third quarter. Inevitably a collector’s item, the erroneous conclusion proves the danger of declaring any sporting...

    Far left Senator Elizabeth Warren was back in the news this week after it was discovered she failed to disclose a $1.3 million line of credit provided to her by Bank of America. Warren regularly lashes out at banks – except when she needs them. Today Warren stopped by the Boston Airport to lead leftist drones in bizarre repetition chanting. The is the type of nonsense coming from the coastal Democrat Party today. "Warren: We’ve all heard about this order that President has given. It is illegal. It is unconstitutional. It will be overturned. An attack on anyone for their...

    Mayor Martin J. Walsh said he would open City Hall as a sanctuary and "safe space" to illegal immigrants -- promising to house them in his office -- in the wake of President Trump's executive order to halt federal funding for "sanctuary cities," and said Boston would not accept federal money if it was tied to toeing Trump's line on immigration. "If people want to live here they'll live here, they can use my office, they can use any office in this building," Walsh said of his promise today to illegal immigrants who are "targeted unjustly," adding "any place they...

    Police have arrested a 42-year-old man on charges he tried to blow up a Boston Police cruiser Friday morning. Boston Police Commissioner William Evans announced Sunday that police arrested Asim Kieta on arson, assault with intent to murder and other charges Saturday night in Charlestown. Police said Kieta is homeless but is from the Dorchester area. Investigators are now working on a possible motive. "We're not clear on the motive," Evans said. "He has a lengthy criminal past. He's been in and out of jail. The commissioner said police are trying to determine "whether there is a hatred for police...

    Pushing a socialist agenda and saying they fear a Trump administration, thousands of demonstrators are expected to take to the Common tomorrow night to protest the inauguration. Eight activist groups under the umbrella of “Socialist Alternative” have dubbed the event “Occupy Inauguration.” Their issues include: •  Making Boston a sanctuary city while stopping deportations of illegal immigrants. • Stopping mass incarceration of minorities. • Legislating gay and transgender rights. • Taxing the “super-rich like Trump” to fund universal health care and free college tuition. “I’m personally afraid of his presidency,” said Keely Mullen, 22, of Roxbury, one of the organizers....
