Harassing a few college kids and drunks? That's nothing. Try a full scale riot like the one that broke out in Harvard Square during an anti -Vietnam War protest on April 16, 1970.

is the gun violence connected to the city council candidacy declarations, I wonder

If the Cambridge City Council released the stenographic record of their meetings.

Seriously, running gun battles in Harvard Square is not the norm.

if the United States' whole gun culture is any indication.
