What a way to end the year

This year has seen a record increase in gun violence in the city of Boston. Last night four people were shot to death in a basement recording studio in Dorchester, one of the hot spots of gun violence in the city. I'm glad the Boston police have stepped up efforts to curb college parties city wide, but can't seem to find a solution to curbing the rate of gun crimes. At one point a friend and I did some rudimentary calculations and figured that about 1 in every 2,000 Bostonians was shot this year. Of course the majority of these crimes have happened in the same neighborhoods so that stat is a bit skewed.
