The horse that an officer was riding got startled and started reacting. A police officer who was standing on the ground next to it got too anxious and tried to fire off a couple rounds of pepper spray projectiles. One hit her in the eye. I think she then fell to the ground and hit her head hard on the pavement. It is a huge story in Boston today. I do, however, feel for the police officers who have to put their lives on the line everyday and deal, on this occasion, with all the fans who act like animals (a small majority of fans).
The front page of the Boston Herald is also becoming a huge issue. The front page shows the girl on the ground bleeding from the head. The picture on page 4 is even worse and IMO neither should be published as they were. I haven't been able to find the pictures online if anyone wanted to see them, although I'm not sure anyone wants to see the last moments of this poor girl's life. And I know for a fact her family shouldn't have to deal with it.
Not that it makes a difference, but she was a very pretty woman and very intelligent from what I have seen. It is truly a shame. The few fans who could not control themselves that night should be ashamed of themselves. It really saddens a great day in Boston sports.
hey if you can find that article and pictures online could you post them on here? Id be interested in seeing them.
