We should start a lottery to bet when the next major crime will hit the town, I say it's the day after the Pat's playoff. Any other bets out there.

Is that the worst that has happened in Melrose in the past five years or more? We don't hear much about that sort of thing in Melrose. Even if that did happen over the weekend, Malden violent crime volume has Melrose beat by a country mile and more... Not even close.

@ Tracy great Idea like a prediction page would be great. Like how many robberies,rapes,assaults,gun violence and stuff like that. Ok me first..I betcha there will be over 12 more store robberies in this city in 2013.

12 is a little low David. I bet over 30.
