    Holyoke was not as bad before Chief Scott destroyed Holyoke. It was small time punks then, but his push sent them scurrying over the bridge to “the new Holyoke”, Chicopee, and Springfield. What were left behind or moved in were hardcore criminals who were not afraid of the cops, the worst kind.
