"Three of the teens stuck around..."

How is this ever going to be fixed when there is so little fear of repercussions?

Until it happens to a resident in the area who lives in Beacon Hill and pays very high real estate taxes and power walks through the Common to get to his high paying professional abutting office, not a damn thing will ever get done.

Five people assaulted one person. That's a group or often a gang assault. It's important to report this clearly. People do things in a group they would never do by themselves.
