One Comment

  1. If the incident of the food truck removed by a BUPD officer did indeed take place at Commonwealth Avenue and Hinsdale Mall was indeed on Commonwealth Avenue, this doesn’t seem to be a matter over which BUPD had the right to assert authority. This would have been a Boston Police issue.
    If the truck was ON BU property, it’s a different story.
