  1. I know that the minute I post this someone is going to accuse me of blaming the victim, but a female walking around alone at 4 AM anywhere in Boston is not a wise idea.

  2. Did the Police happen to mention one of our Neighborhood Small stores was robbed at Gun Point the other day or night?

    Did the Police happen to mention a guy jumping from roof to roof on Thatcher St. who was trying to rob apts.? They
    caught him & he was suppose to come

    from New York.

    How many robberies & murders have to take place before we have enough Police Protection?

    We the residents, don’t know the half of it. A lot of incidents are kept quiet for the sake of Tourism.

    Once again, Where the Hell are our Elected Politicians? Are they being forced to turn their heads the other way? If not,
    what the Hell is going on?
