I live in the Dorchester section of Boston, which within this particular area of the city there are some extremely bad parts, I live in a rather nice one near the water though.
There are shootings in Boston weekly, yet this one makes headlines because it was at a place people have heard of, MIT. And for he record MIT is in Cambridge, not Boston.
Granted a police officer was shot in this case rather than a gang banger, but even still this is going to turn into a national story as the media will try to ride the coattails of the tragedy that was the bombing.
My thoughts are with the officer and their safe recovery.
