Innocent, etc.


Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!


Not to be pedantic, but the correct name for that particular area is Shoppers Plaza.

Was it a simple or aggravated assault?

So it is assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. (which is a more serious charge than aggravated assault)

Seems like there should be 342* additional charges of assault (or threatening or endangering or whatever) for every by-stander (including inside buildings) within 100 yards.

* 342 is a made up number, maybe its less due to covid, but shooting in Downtown Crossing on a Friday afternoon is so very extra stupid.
