Boston University is announcing a $10,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of the teens responsible for four armed holdups in Brookline near the Boston line over the past couple of weeks.

Based on police reports, there has been a pattern here. However, last night's robbery took place on our campus. This brings the problem home, and it dramatically elevates our concern for the safety of our community. While the police are doing an excellent job, it became clear to us that it was time for the institution to enhance its support of the investigation.

Back in the day, kids had to learn how to hide under their desks when the A-bombs fell. Things sure are better these days - the odds of a Soviet ICBM barrage are kind of low. But as Boston University Police remind us, we need to be prepared for mass murderers.

Boston University has bought three on-campus streets from the city for $11.45 million. Their plan is to turn the roads into a "pedestrian mall" for now, although the university master plan uses some of the space to redevelop and expand science laboratory buildings along the roads.

Signs went up along the roads recently announcing the removal of all public parking on July 30th, which includes over 100 meters and unmetered space for about a dozen handicap-designated vehicles. The information on the signs informed people to call the University's Transportation Department, whose website also contains further information.
