Another terrific example of blaming Springfield, even when the city has nothing to do with a particular incident comes to us today from MassLive…again:
Somehow this article merits inclusion under the “Springfield” banner because:
So, he is HOMELESS, but from Springfield. As with the fire at the library in Northampton, where the HOMELESS person who set the fire was somehow “from” Easthampton, I would posit that the status of homelessness means you are from where you are. When crimes are committed by the homeless in Springfield no investigation into their provenance takes place so as to mitigate the negative impact on the city’s reputation!
A few weeks ago a fatal shooting in the city was announced with this headline:
“Oh my God, a shooting near a school…I hope the kids were OK.”
Except it was at 5 p.m.
On a Saturday.
In early August.
Compare that to the treatment this vehicle getting crushed on Route 20 in Brimfield (Again!) got on the same day.
Keep calm and drive on, people.
