    These people aren't really from that neighborhood. They come from your cities and towns, get off on the Red Line and walk to the methadone clinics. I would luuuuuuv if these clinics were in some rich town.

    I thought it was any day ending in "y"...

    BTW, sister and mother live in Methuen. Or, as I call it, Lawrence Lite.

    Oh they're in rich towns, they're just called "retreats" or some other variant that sounds nice(and of course they aren't free so that may have something to do with it).

    If your familiar with the area the only thing I seen unordinary was the blue RAV 4 taking an illegal right turn. Everything else seems like a regular day at the methadone mile.

    The few times I've been in Boston I wondered what those blue bikes were for. Now I know. It's so the crackheads can be mobile.

    Rich towns deport their homeless and family abandoned drug addicts to cities. The cities are dumb enough to take them without sending those skinflint towns a bill for providing the services they won't. It's typically only when a town is about to get slapped across the face with multiple 40bs that they cut the snobbery make it someone else's problem shit and clean up their own messes.

    Oh, that explains all those homeless people sleeping on the grass embankment! I used to take the Mass Ave exit a lot in the 90's to visit friends at Northeastern and there was always just that one panhandler at the light near the prison. Drove by there about a year ago and the road was totally different and lined with about thirty wretched characters sleeping on cardboard.

    Meh. Try volunteering at the Pine St., Inn. Last weeks crew was every bit those two guys. My favorite was the guy arguing with his backpack for an hour. [laugh]

    I loved it when the volunteers would get a show. It’s a little bit more than a soup ladle and crackers...

These ‘F’in morons will get between cars with there bikes and ride wheely’s next to your car all the way up the street giving you this stupid moronic look, I legit cannot stand these people

    I don't see anything wrong with the video. Disabled people passed out in the street ass-over-teakettle are a road hazard and cause traffic congestion. The market solved the issue: remove the road hazard and help yourself to a victory prize [laugh]

    The only thing I saw that was weird was there was an MBTA bus that looked it was actually running.
