It is the second time this week a young teen has been charged with murder. A 14-year-old boy, Ernest Watkins IV, was charged Monday with the stabbing death of a 39-year-old man who resisted when a group of teenagers tried to rob him on Oct. 6 near the Fields Corner MBTA station in Dorchester, police said.
But wait, there’s more!
A 15-year-old Brighton High School student and two men were charged today with murder and illegal gun possession in connection with a shooting Wednesday night in the South End, an apparent targeted killing, prosecutors said.
So we live in a state where getting a permit to OWN a handgun is a maybe, all legal guns are registered, many guns are excluded from public sale, and magazines that hold more than 10 are heavily restricted. All this and we have murders by minors, and high-speed car chases!
Seems to be working GREAT! I think those other states with LOWER crime than Massachusetts should adopt our bullshit!
