More senseless killing. These are all working class towns with enough problems already. I guess the cops were too busy with their $40 per hour details guarding construction sites to stop any of this.
I agree 100%
I see these cops everyday shooting the shit at construction details with the crew and NOT even paying attention to traffic. I also see them all the time trying to seduce some of them dirty Brazilian skanks who live in Everett. These cops just don't give a shit, until it affects them personally!

Actually, not to burst your bubble, but we aren't remarkable in terms of crime. Massachusetts isn't in listed in the most dangerous states, and none of its cities are listed in the most dangerous cities. So, I guess we don't "in general attracts criminals." Of course, we weren't listed in the safest states, either. Looks like we're about average:

Thats because Everett dosen't report any crimes or incidents in the city unless it involves Carlo's wife planting a marigold.

You're probably right. If Everett reported crime correctly, we'd likely fall between Oakland and Detroit. Then Massachusetts certainly would have made the list right around number 7.

I guess it all depends on what you consider a crime.

If you consider taking taxpayers money to buy cell phones for crackheads a crime, then the entitlement state of Massachusetts moves up a few notches.


Scamming the system goes unnoticed & unreported.

More *needy* people in the system and receiving benefits, equals larger amounts of government allowances will be approved, for distribution to the *poor impoverished* drug addicts of Everett.

It's in the best interest of your local Health & Human Services to cover as many *po people* as possible,

since that increases their budget, number of employees, and office space allowances with every junkie that they can extend food stamps, cell phones, section eight, Mass health, etc etc to.

Imagine your job was to hand out (someone elses)$100 bills for a living,

and the more $100 bills you passed out, the more $100 dollar bill passer-outers they'd let you hire to help you.

It's a friggen joke,
but the joke's on us.

The issue we are discussing is Everett specific -- the increasing crime rate and what can be done about it. We are trying to figure out what draws "the filth" to our community over the surrounding communities, how other local communities have successfully combated these issues, and what lessons we can learn from them.

Is any of the above Everett specific? Does Everett have more social programs or do our "local Health & Human Services" offer more benefits than other places? If so, what is unique about Everett's offerings, who is offering these special benefits, and who actually benefits from them. If not, this comment is tangental and irrelevant, as we cannot secede from Massachusetts.

Also, while I'm not sure how I feel about the "Obama Phones," your take on them is misleading. The phones are not being paid for by taxes. Instead, the telecommunications companies are required to "donate" the services to the recipients. They choose to pass on the expense of their "donation" to their customers, or they choose to absorb this "donation or make it up in other ways. Given the huge profits that this multibillion dollar corporations make, I think it is terribly greedy that some are choosing to push this cost onto the consumer. Typical corporate greed.

From the FCC website: http://www.fcc.gov/cgb/consumerfacts/lllu.htm...

"All telecommunications service providers and certain other providers of telecommunications must contribute to the federal USF based on a percentage of their interstate and international end-user telecommunications revenues. These companies include wireline phone companies, wireless phone companies, paging service companies, and certain Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) providers.

Some consumers may notice a “Universal Service” line item on their telephone bills. This line item appears when a company chooses to recover its USF contributions directly from its customers by billing them this charge. The FCC does not require this charge to be passed on to customers. Each company makes a business decision about whether and how to assess charges to recover its Universal Service costs."

Actually, I was being sarcastic in response to a comment about misrepresented crime statistics.
