College Students In Boston Warned Over Crime Increase

BOSTON (CBS) – An increase in robberies has led to a warning for college students living in Boston.

Boston University campus police sent an email to students about safety on and off campus.

WBZ-TV’s Paul Burton reports.

The warning states that there’s been an increase in street crime around MBTA stops.

While no students have been injured, thieves are targeting items like cell phones and electronic devices.

Students who live in Allston, Brighton, Fenway, and Mission Hill are being asked to make sure their doors and windows are locked when no one is around.

    Uh oh! We’d better make stricter gun laws! That will fix this upswing in crime for sure! After all, it is usually law abiding citizens that arm people, the guns just corrupt them!

    There are foibles in this world. There are even physics foibles and we can’t avoid them but creating the poor increases creates the crime increases.
