I recognize downtown areas get a bit different on the weekends.... but it's starting to get a bit scary to be down there even after dark.

Keep your wig on, I am almost sure I compared to other cities with the same demographics and population decline is probably twice or three times worse in their downtown areas. also keep in mind Boston properties and its population is growing at a very fast rate. More people more crime.

Everyone should be exercising more prevention and awareness, however not paranoia when traveling in the city at night.

here's a tip for you When approaching your locked car, unlock your doors with your automatic door opener or have your keys ready to unlock your door of your car. Before entering your car quickly look behind you and then enter, use the same technique when entering a dwelling. Travel in pairs stay in populated areas and stay in well-lit areas.

I assume there are some undercover cops wandering around the area, but there is zero visible police presence in the area.

The mayor is dropping the ball big time on crime and quality-of-life issues. Sadly, nothing is going to get his attention until a Millennium Tower resident actually ventures outside without an SUV, and gets mugged or stabbed.

First off, you "assume" incorrectly - there are VERY few "undercover" police in that (or any) area at any given time (especially if you're in an even more deserted, "scary" area of town...Secondly, even if there WAS an "undercover" cop or two "wandering" in the area, your assumption is that there would magically be someone in every area, every minute of every day, who would swoop in and save your butt.

The problem is, there aren't. And even if your fantasy WAS true, you have (on average, based on FBI stats) between three and seven SECONDS to save your (or your family's) life.

Luckily, Thomas Jefferson and his pals thought about this scenario and drafted and passed something called the Bill of Rights (aka the first Ten Amendments to the United States Constitution. And the 2nd Amendment will - God forbid - save your life in those three to seven seconds when you're screaming "Help! Help me I'm being stabbed!!".

The issue is that in Boston (and MA in general), the "powers that be" don't believe in the US Constitution and they'll do EVERYTHING THEY CAN to prevent you from exercising your Right to Keep AND BEAR Arms. In MA, the individual towns' Chiefs of Police gets to "decide" whose life is "worthy" of being saved. Remember this some night when YOU are being robbed or simply accosted by some deranged "should be institutionalized if we only had institutions to hold them in" lunatic intent on KILLING you, for your wallet, your purse, or simply for perverted and'or sexual thrill.

And if you think you're "safe" since you don't venture downtown, or anywhere for that matter, after dark? Amy Lord undoubtedly "felt safe" that beautiful South Boston morning a few years ago as she left her apartment and walked to the nearby gym. Until she was kidnapped at knifepoint, snatched AT RANDOM by some (insert drumroll sound effect here) previously paroled violent criminal, set loose upon society by a failed MA legal system.

The same legal system that tells you that THEY get to decide if you're "suitable" enough to carry a firearm and be able to save your life from the filthbag scum like Edward Alemeny who sexually violated and then butchered Amy while she wondered if there were any "undercover cops" around who might save her soon-to-be-ended, brutally, life.

Remember this when someone tells you the 2nd Amendment shouldn't just be "infringed" the way the Commonwealth sees fit, but maybe even repealed the way Hillary Alinsky dreams of.....Cuz then, as you're totally defenseless to the criminal scum around you, even YOU can get butchered like Amy was that morning.

Sounds like a "Great Society", eh?
