Description : Abstract
Mayor Kevin White holds a press conference at City Hall to discuss the Procession Against Violence scheduled for the following day. He says that white and African American community leaders have been invited and must make their own decisions about whether to attend. White says that the march will register the objections of the community to violence. White says that the media and the public can draw their own conclusions about those who do not attend. Robert DiGrazia (Police Commissioner, City of Boston) and George Paul (Fire Commissioner, City of Boston) comment on emergency response to the bombing of Suffolk County Courthouse. DiGrazia and Paul says that they are investigating the reasons for a communication breakdown within the courthouse after the bombing. DiGrazia and Paul say that there the police and fire departments experienced no difficulties in communication. DiGrazia notes that there have been numerous bomb threats across the city since yesterday, including a bomb threat at White's office. Reporters question DiGrazia about the classification of two suspects as "Puerto Rican." Paul describes measures taken to protect fire fighters when responding to calls in areas of unrest.
