    Thank you to the BHA for moving these gang bangers into our once peaceful neighborhood even after they have been evicted from the previous addresses in BHA housing. A genius move thinking if you move the problem with a geographic relocation trouble will not follow stop thinking like these idiots doing the shooting. Lets use some common sense when handling these type of problem tenants try moving them to Tyngsborough or Bolton Mass make them work for the next victim.

    I’ve got a solution: Let’s tear down all three public “NO INCOME”, FATHERLESS, FAKE DISABILITY, DEADBEAT, DRUG DEALING,LOWLIFE individuals down the WATERFRONT. Originally, these public housing projects were designed for working class people..NOT LOWLIFES..ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS ect..These places MUST BE TORN DOWN and the inhabitant moved ..Why are the good hardworking being repeatedly subjected to these LOWLIFES!

      Well said, my friend! If everyone could divert their attention away from the “yuppies vs locals” for a period of time, and instead focus more on ridding Southie of this garbage, we would all be MUCH better off.

      Get rid of these places! Gone! Boston is a gorgeous and prosperous city. You have to EARN the RIGHT to live here. Free ride is coming to an end, folks!

      I still don’t understand why you want to move these individuals to the waterfront? You’ve mentioned it multiple times. The waterfront is the most desired place to be for a lot of hard working people, why on earth would you want the deadbeats there?

      It’s because no politician is going to make the move to kick these people out on the street. We all know the fathers are living in most of these units but they avoid getting married so the mother can apply for public housing and food stamps. Take a drive down D St and look in the parking lots, chances are half the cars are nicer than yours.

        It’s true. I live fairly close and I see tons of newer cars & a mix of nice ones. Plenty of Mercedes, Lexus’ & Acura’s. Although, I also believe most of these people have very little financial foresight & just buy whatever their credit allows them to. Once you get deep into the realms of bad credit people tend to just go all out on because all they have to lose is their already low credit score.

    I’ll tell ya why I want them down the waterfront.Because We the people of the neighborhood always get stuck with this vermin encroaching on us and we bear the brunt of it..3 Public housing projects in THE NEIGHBORHOOD..NOT ONE down the WATERFRONT..!! Why? Lets spread the garbage around!..These vermin are getting a little to comfortable around the neighborhood..GET RID OF THIS GARBAGE.

      Why not get them out of the city limits entirely? It should be a privilege to live here, not a right. I still go to the waterfronts (whichever you are referring to, I assume the Seaport?) and would prefer those people not be there either. And I’m sure the new uber wealthy residents there don’t want them.

        YES YES YES.

        REMOVE them from the city all together.

        As I said before, Boston is a gorgeous and prosperous city to live in. Get this trash outta here. Plenty of places in the country that are more affordable where you can get away with this.

        Not around here. Times they are a changing folks! Time to pay the piper

    1/2 the people living in these places ARE NOT ON THE LEASE..they have their fatherless wives and children move in ( by the way ON WELFARE ) then they ( the DEADBEAT DADS) move right on in..and start shooting, robbing and causing mayhem.

      And there lies the problem of the the government running public housing. They can barely monitor the parking situation, I can’t imagine the resources they would need to ensure that public housing was being allocated correctly. I’m sure some public housing employees have had guns waived at them.

    Totally agree.. three large housing projects in about 3 square miles…. no other area has that many in that small a space.. And yes there should absolutely be more oversight!
