shootings in mattapan

Manchester, MA

#1 Oct 5, 2010
I have lived in Mattapan for over forty-two years, and I can say why the shootings have happened. When I was growing up in Mattapan there were police officers walking beats(on foot patrol). There was not that much trouble because their presence detered crime. Now there are five time the amount of police in Mattapan and they never walk beats. They are never present, until someone calls for them, well after the fact. Thats why there is so much crime in towns like these. People become cops nowadays for the money. Even they don't want to get involved because it means doing work---filling out incident reports.
