I heard it around the corner on Cottage St. in Jeffries Point. Thank goodness it wasn't more serious. Here is some additional info: https://twitter.com/JoshBrogadirTV/status/1015964794170609664

Mayor Walsh has declared Boston a sanctuary city where Boston Police are told not to cooperate with federal officials in cases where immigration or deportation might be an issue. Since Boston did notify the FBI in this case, can we infer that the violator is a US citizen?

We have plenty of state laws against explosives, bombs and unlawful possession of firearms. Some carry a life sentence. As Walsh has said repeatedly, there's really no reason to call in the feds. Our outgoing DA actually agreed to a 364 day sentence for a multiple bank robber and changed the charges to the equivalent of pickpocket to avoid deportation. That immigrant was so grateful for the special favor that he went out and brutally killed two Medical Doctors in their South Boston home.

Very curious to see the national origin of this suspect and why the FBI was called. Is there one law for illegals and another for US Citizens? Will the dutiful media get around to asking Evans or Walsh?

BPD calls the feds when they think there is federal crime besides immigration. They just don't do foolish things like hold people only for immigration reasons or for minor crimes.

You're too dense to understand this but if you want violent criminals gone you need the help of the community. The community won't help if they think doing so is going to get them deported. 99% of immigrants are not violent.

This is the most nonsensical statement I've read in a while but the scariest part is that it's actually how we as a society operate now.
