WBZ reports on the incident yesterday in the road outside the Barnes & Noble near South Shore Plaza.
The vast majority of the time that I hear the town of Randolph mentioned in the news, its related to violent crimes. #whatgives?
The mall where this occurred is in Braintree. The victim is from Randolph.
It used to be a decent neighborhood, and people wonder why communities are against low income housing.
Give 'em a liveable wage? THATS CRAZY!!
Improve their access to, and knowledge of, birth control.
Do you have any data that you want to share that poor people have more kids than non-poor people?
And stop them from shooting up the neighborhoods with bullets!
A man from Randolph gets stabbed in Braintree, and the trolls start blowing their racist dog whistles about Randolph. Go back in your holes, trolls.
Someone simply described as a "man from Randolph" leads you to the assumption that poor people from Randolph are the cause of these type of events? First of all, the whole thing went down in Braintree and second of all, the Randolph guy was the victim. For all we know, he could have been completely innocent... or rich, or middle class, or fat, or skinny, or asian, or white, or black (you get my point). I live a town over from Randolph and it's not really as terrible as you seem to think it has become. But yeah, why couldn't they have just kept all those damn poor people in the city instead of opening up affordable housing opportunities for them outside of the slums of Dorchester / Mattapan / Roxbury? Randolph used to be such an amazing place until they ruined it!!
Randolph is not nearly as dangerous/downtrodden as it's made out to be. There are some crappy housing developments occupied by people who don't work and get arrested for drugs and such, but there are also a lot of good hard working, tax paying individuals in the Dolph. Kinda like everywhere else in America...

Dumbass. Not poor either. Mostly home OWNERS.
Sure its not Brockton, but its also not canton.
Here's a crime map, guess what two neighborhoods have the highest crime rates in the SS?
How come most of the crime in Randolph occurs right at the border?
I am sort of surprised by the tri-town area of Holbrook, Randolph and Avon and how high the crime is there.
WTF does this have anything to do with a Braintree person assaulting someone? It doesn't matter where the hell this person came from.
And here we had been having such a good time picking on Braintree lately for its generation of idiot criminals in the city ...
Can we please stop the poor bashing? And many folks that work live in low income housing, ok?
Kindly take your ignorance to a Trump rally.
As others have pointed out, the victim was from Randolph.
The suspect, on the other hand, was from the town the crime occurred in.
I'm sure there are plenty of communities in Massachusetts you only hear about when bad things happen, not because there is a lot of bad things happening, but that there aren't a lot of news stories whatsoever coming out of there, so the bad ones stand out to you. I'm sure you'd have a different opinion if you read the local newspaper, where more good is reported than bad.
Brianjdamico has it right. My point was that the only time I hear anything about Randolph in the news, its due to a nightclub fight, an arrest of a Randolph resident for setting in Boston, or in this case, a victim of something that happened in a nearby town.
Other than the prior comments here, I don't know anything else about the town. It's demographics, history, or what might make it great (other than convenient location). I do know a bit about Needham, Bedford, Braintree, and other towns along I95.
Maybe they need to hire a PR rep, or start hosting some type of unique festival.
Hope the road rage victim recovers and the bad guy is convicted.
Best of luck to Randolph.
Braintree man faces charges.
Oh great this is really ridiculous now some people stabbing others they need to ban those knifes away from crazy people now i cant be trusted to walk around braintree mall and enough of the violence now
The point is that they can kill far fewer people with a knife than they would with a WMD-style gun.
You think you are clever and funny, but you just sound delusional.
Then again, you probably wear Depends out of fear of ISIS, neglecting that the US sees the equivalent of a Paris Massacre each month in gun murders (adjusted for population).
Last I checked, knives were freely available in most of these other countries, but guns were not so freely available. Therefore, it is your argument that is ridiculous.
