This week's Boston Phoenix cover story -- Hunting the Craigslist Killer: An Untold Detective Story from the Digital Frontier -- would not have been possible without access to a huge trove of case files released by the Boston Police Department. Many of those documents have never been made public -- until now.
least one group of protest fans expects Occupy to stage a significant
Spring comeback. The gushing observers were out in force yesterday,
tailing rally-goers on a march through downtown and Faneuil Hall.
Sure, Boston police have shown appreciation for Occupy before. But it
was still impressive to see so many of them dedicate their whole
Sunday to the cause, and to playing along with their very own April
of all, I want to say that everyone feels just awful about the polite
woman who lives in Harbor Towers, and who had to sit in traffic for a
full half-hour one day last Fall on account of Occupy Boston marching
down Atlantic Ave. In a way, she's a bold representation of all the
apathetic martyrs who've been inconvenienced by the countless people
who are standing up for jobs and civil rights.
