No. And it's not because of the Police. They do an awesome job. We border Boston and unfortunately we get a lot of people coming in. That on top of the regular types of crimes the police deal with simply make it to hard and ultimately less safe. This is not an indictment on Boston people but every town has bad apples and they are a big city.
