The Shot Heard 'Round the World
There's no doubt about it. And we need to place the blame firmly where it belongs. In this case, with two people.
1) Victoria Snelgrove
2) Boston Police Commissioner Kathleen M. O'Toole
Why these two?
Ms. Snelgrove was an adult. She was 21 years old and obviously had a decent head on her shoulders, Emerson does not take idiots into its class rooms. She was in the Boston area last year, and two years ago when the Patriots won the Super Bowl. She knew the type of things that could happen there. She was a journalism student, how could she not? She wasn't even at the game. She went down to the area after the game ended. They had been showing the asinine things people were doing almost from the time the final out was called. She made the choice to walk eyes wide open into what she knew was a nasty, potentially dangerous situation. I feel sorry for her family, but she was a grown up and responsible for her actions.
As for O'Foole?
What kind of stupid, concieted, selfserving bimbo undermines the very people who are walking straight into the lions den? This was disgusting, and i do agree that she needs to go. The sooner the better.
