  1. Criminals have found certain parts of Watertown, especially the malls, to be soft targets.

    Week after week, month after month, year after year.

  2. Thanks for you comment about when a person’s race is listed in the Police Log (and reminder that comments must be signed with a full name). I put in the race when it is a suspect that Police are trying to identify.
