Group Aims to Hold ‘Last Mile’ Run/Walk from Kenmore to Finish Line on Saturday

  If you were one of the runners forced to end your Marathon early because of the bombings — or someone who just wants to show solidarity — a group is working to let you go “The Last Mile” on Saturday. Organizers are using Facebook to let people know of the effort. Here’s how they put it: So, as you have all heard by now, some coward likes to blow up trash cans. In doing so, this person or persons have hindered many from accomplishing something they have been training very hard to do over the past year. This is simple, we are going to Kenmore Square to finish the race for those who ran, and for those who can never run again. Share this with your friends, your families, your enemies, and anyone in between. Come join us and run, jog, walk, limp, wheel, or crawl that last mile. Organizers say they aren’t sure if they can get the proper permits in time. They also say that, clearly, if the stretch is still a crime scene they don’t want people jogging through and getting themselves arrested. Patch has reached out to organizers but hasn’t heard back from them yet. Some commenters on Facebook are saying it’s too soon for an event like this, with some pointing to the April 20 date (which is the anniversary of the Columbine Massacre) as a reason to choose a different day. Even if the last section of the Marathon is still cordoned off on Saturday, nearby Salem is hosting a “Last Mile” event of its own. Runners are gathering at the Salem Common at 6:45 p.m. Thursday. It’s part of a larger event including a candlelight vigil. Here is more information from the city of Salem. South End Patch

Crime Down Overall in South End Since Last Year

Crime in the South End area is down overall, but there have been several recent house breaks in the area, according to the Boston Police Department.  Captain Paul M. Ivens of the D-4 district said that crime in 2012 was down compared to 2011, which was down compared to 2010. According to Boston Police statistics, in the South End area, overall crime was down 10 percent.  Captain Ivens said the area around Peter’s Park has been improving based on a concerted effort to interrogate everyone seen hanging around the area. “They didn’t do anything wrong, but we know they were in this area on this date, and sometimes it helps us in other investigations,” he said. “People that don’t belong here, we make it uncomfortable for them to be here anymore. Once they are no longer anonymous they tend to leave.” Captain Ivens said there were some recent house breaks in the South End, near Warren Avenue, and several suspects were arrested.  “It has gotten better,” he said. “Is it perfect? No, but we keep striving and we keep hammering away.” In the D-4 district, there were six homicides in 2012 compared to 2011. There were 29 rape cases or attempted rape cases compared to 33 last year, and robbery and attempted robbery were also down, 273 to 308. Burglary was also down, 524 in 2011 to 317 cases in 2012.  Do you notice improvements on your street? Are you happy to hear that crime is down in the neighborhood? Tell us in the comments.
