Here are the latest BPD crime stats. And look at that: Overall, crime in Boston IS down over last year, and over the five-year average. Imagine that!

For the can't-see-gray crowd: Nobody has ever said there is NO crime in Boston, but, yes, it's no longer the 1980s, when crime, especially murder, was way higher than it is now.
