Citizen's Map of Beacon Hill Break-Ins

Litlnemo created a Google map showing the locations of a bunch of North Beacon Hill break-ins, as reported on the neighborhood mailing list, in the last few weeks.

Speaking of Beacon Hill crime statistics, I have yet to hear back from the city on why their website displays inaccurate, incomplete, and self-contradictory information. (Monday morning they told me they needed a few days to review my post.)

Add to the list the shooting Friday night 4/4 inside the Beacon "Pub" that left two critically injured. What a surprise...I stopped going to this seedy dive two blocks from my house after witnessing too many drug and prostitution deals going down inside/outside the premises. The sister/brother owners(?) seemed to condone the behavior and made no attempt to quell illegal activity or throw out the gangbangers who get their hair cut two doors down. Oh how I hope they shut the place down and in the location a place similar to Linda's Tavern, 9# Hammer, etc. opens up!!

As an infrequent yet consistent customer of the local tavern I guess I have to agree with the previous comments, especially after reading statements by the owner's mother in today's P.I. She and her daughter (owner) come off as being totally clueless of the clientele which seems very disingeneous. They also mention that they have already ordered security cameras that haven't yet been delivered. Um, sure, that's exactly the right thing to say for the authorities. I sure hope this is the last nail in the coffin for the place.

I wanted to note that two nights before the shooting at the tavern my neighbor was robbed at gunpoint walking west on Hill Street, next to Beacon Hill Elementary School. My neighbor had gotten off the bus for the short walk home and was accosted by two men in a premeditated set-up. One of the perpetrators hid in the pota-potty at the construction site on 13th and Hill he jumped out and when my neighbor turned to run another man was behind her who had followed from the bus stop. It is not even summer yet but the crime, drug, and prostite activity is worse than I have seen in years.

Arrgg...I was thinking about buying a house in the area, but I'm kind of skeptical now. I thought the area had changed.
