Someone shot dead a block away from the Boston Police Department HQ with no leads? Yikes.

You think the cops care and want to do their job? I have called them a few times in the South End. They could care less people selling drugs, harassing people who walk buy and drinking on the side walks. These same guys just got into a shouting match with a guy on a bicycle because they were on their turf. Detects pulled the guy over on the bicycle and these guys fled. TREMONT ST from W NEWTON to Pembroke St. THEY ARE RIGHT THERE EVERY NIGHT. GO DO YOUR JOB!!!!!

I'm trying to write a story about the recent shootings in the area, and I was wondering if I could interview you for your opinion about them. My email is jleach92@bu.edu, shoot me a message if you can. I really want to report the people's voice about this.
