A JOINT STATEMENT FROM THE BOSTON AREA RAPE CRISIS CENTER AND THE BOSTON POLICE SEXUAL ASSAULT UNIT

As a result of a recent news article in the Worcester Telegram & Gazette, the issue of safety for undocumented victims of sexual assault or rape has come into question. The Boston Area Rape Crisis Center and the Boston Police Sexual Assault Unit wish to reassure victims that local law enforcement has no interest in a victim’s immigration status. Police are only interested in ensuring justice for a victim and holding a perpetrator accountable. “We feel that this is an important opportunity to let the public know that the police do not question a victim’s immigration status when they are reporting a crime”, said Captain Detective Mark Hayes of the Sexual Assault Unit.

Referring to a controversy surrounding statements reported in the Worcester Telegram and Gazette made by representative Fattman (R-Sutton), Gina Scaramella the Executive Director at the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center stated, “We work hard to reduce the barriers for survivors to access as many options as possible from the rape crisis center, the hospitals, and the police.” Scaramella added, “Since people listen to public officials, it is very unfortunate whenever there is a statement made that makes our work to support victims more difficult.”

Captain Detective Hayes added, “In 2009, the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security issued Adult Sexual Assault Law Enforcement Guidelines to set the baseline standard for handling these crimes in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.   In these guidelines there is recognition that immigration status is a barrier felt by victims in reporting this crime.  We work to provide reassurance to any victim facing obstacles because reporting the crime is the only way police are going to be able to hold offenders accountable.”

BARCC is the second oldest rape crisis center in the nation, and the oldest and largest in Massachusetts. With a service area of twenty-seven cities and towns and over three million people, we provide 24 hour help and support as well as prevention education. Visit www.barcc.org.

‘Bonnie and Clyde’ Is No Match for Officers and Good Samaritans!

On Tuesday June 21, 2011 at approximately 1:18pm officers responded to a call for armed robbery at 444 W. 4th Street in South Boston. A victim stated that while she was walking on Dorchester Ave an unknown male had attempted to snatch her gold chains. The victim struggled with the suspect and was able to retain the necklaces although they were now broken and a pendant had fallen into the street. A witness began to chase the suspect and summonsed another witness on a bicycle to join in the pursuit. As both witnesses pursued the suspect, he jumped into a white Oldsmobile with a tan colored top at W. 4th and F Street.  The vehicle was being driven by a female and witnesses overheard the suspect yelling to the female ‘Go go go!”, “take a right!”. A witness yelled to the suspect to stop when the suspect turned and produced a knife, which he held up as a threat to the witness.

The suspect and vehicle description were broadcast over the police radio. Shortly thereafter, officers spotted the Oldsmobile now being driven by the male suspect behind the Andrew Square MBTA Station. Officers stopped the vehicle and the male and female occupants were taken into custody. The male suspect was positively identified by witnesses as the individual responsible for the earlier robbery attempt.

Officers placed 28 year old Edward Pyne of Boston under arrest and charged him with Armed Robbery and Possession of Class B. Officers also arrested Andrea Freitas, 31, of Plymouth and charged her with Armed Robbery.

WHERE: Media Room at Boston Police Headquarters

A guest blog post from the Boston Public Library's Tom Blake (Digital Projects Manager): BPL recently posted an enormous and historic collection of crime scene photos to Flickr - read about them!

Earlier this month, the Digital Services Department of the Boston Public Library released several groups of images depicting historic local police scenes from the earlier part of the 20th century. These photographs were all taken by Leslie Jones, a Boston Herald-Traveler staff photographer who worked for most of the first half of that century. His personal photographic archive is currently stored at Central Library in Copley Square. The entire collection was digitized from the original glass and film negatives and the images will gradually appear on the BPL’s Flickr account over the next few years. Digitization included archival processing of the negatives into individual acid-free sleeves, transcription of the photographer’s original captions onto the new sleeves and into an Excel spreadsheet, and electronic conversion of the images using a 22 megapixel digital camera set up over a daylight-balanced, flicker-free light table.

Most of the collection’s 36,516 images stored in the BPL’s Print Department vault are arranged into photographer-assigned subject categories. Alphabetically, the collection gets off to a rough start with “Accidents: Miscellaneous” and ends no more peacefully with “Weather: Storms and Flooding.” The schadenfreude really kicks in as the sequence gets even more tragic with the recently released “Crime/Police” series, followed by “Fires,” “Military,” “Maritime Accidents,” and “War Days.” One would expect that some degree of levity could be found in the “Animals: Miscellaneous” series, but upon closer inspection this pendulous pachyderm appears to be only one poorly tied knot away from joining the “Maritime Accidents” bunch. And, these tricycle-riding monkeys are only slightly more festive than this group of police officers responding to a fatal manhole explosion on Summer Street.

 Joyous or otherwise, be sure to check out our most recently published images of your law enforcement predecessors during Prohibition and the Millen-Faber murder case – and be thankful you didn’t get this assignment.
