I live right up the street from there. I cannot believe this is happening in our neighborhood! I have two small children to raise! If this continues, Brookline is going to become a "ghetto" very soon cause no one is going to want to live with this nonsense going on all the time! Low life drug dealing losers!! Ever hear of a J.O.B? Guess not, that's why your in the A.C.J!

The Brookline community has seen a steady rise in drug use since the 1980's. The Boulevard is littered with non working drug dealers who weave in and out of the (far too many) bars that line the boulevard. They’re always there sitting in the chairs that bars put out or just loafing on the sidewalks, but always there. Unfortunately these dealers go unreported as people choose to turn their heads and look the other way and not want to get involved until it directly affects them which by then it is usually too late. But it's not just Brookline it's everywhere, no community is immune. Teaching our children to stay away from drugs is no longer enough. It may delay their inevitable exposure to drug use, but by the time they are exposed most adults have stopped preaching about drugs life altering effects. As adults we also must become vigilant and inform the authorities of suspicious behaviors, be on the look out for increased activity of cars coming and going to homes at all hours of the day and night and report what we are seeing and PLEASE continue to report what you are seeing As the summer approaches dealers will filter on to our streets in search of new users and activity will once again become visible. Take action for the very life you save may be the one that you hold closest. I pray that no one reading this ever has to endure the pain of losing a loved one to drug use, but the decision to act and take back our streets is entirely up to you.

this is to Love B-line, I totally understand what you mean. But the way life is today you want to be more careful in how you might want to get involved in your community. People die for getting involved. So it's like how do I help without feeling like your life or your family is now in danger.
Bobby Sacco March 01, 2013 at 01:31 PM
Hopefully they're prosecuted to the furthest extent.

Some of you say take it back to your own hood. But drugs are in every hood no matter what color you are.
Love B-line March 01, 2013 at 02:45 PM
I certainly understand your apprehension and concern marie post, but you do not have to give your name or any personal info to report suspicious activity if that is truly your concern. You can make anonymous tips to get the ball moving. I would never suggest confronting one of these thugs one on one, but at the same time I refuse to live in fear of a possible repercussion that may or may not exist. I have to live & die my own belief system, my honor and my integrity & what I deem best for my family, my children. If I allow anyone to negatively influence that then they have won and I am but smaller image of what I once thought of myself and I can NOT allow that to happen. I refuse to live in fear. I have to lead by example and practice what I preach for the sake of my kids and our community

@arcole aressted but not convicted... Convicted or not I was there and saw with my own eyes her drunken stuper as the paramedics tried to help her she's very lucky she didn't kill the other driver. Anyone can get a laywer good enough to plead it down so as for the not being convicted it was still her that was drunk behind the wheel and crossed over into on coming traffic and caused the accident!!!! I have no simpathy for those whom have no respect for human life I hope thy throw the book at her!
