These people allowed the tax collectors to search for the smuggled goods. All the colonists hated the brand new laws, because most of the power was taken away from the colonial government. The colonists started boycotting many of the British goods.

The Boston Massacre

Both sides resented each other. The Boston Massacre was a type of street fight. They were throwing different objects like snowballs, rocks, and sticks. Also, they were having a squad of British soldiers. The whole riot began when maybe 50 citizens attacked a British settlement.
