I am really concerned with what is happening to the Salem Common these days. I got up at 5:30 to get a walk in before it got too hot. I counted (and photographed) 3 men sleeping on benches in the Common, bottles at their sides. A neighbor walking his dogs said that the benches are occupied almost every morning. In the evenings, a group of teenagers loiter at the bandstand (where there are outlets to charge their cell phones), leaving litter and booze bottles around. They are right below the cameras that supposedly are watched by Salem Police. Two weeks ago, I called the police regarding a teenager, passed out dead drunk on the grass. I moved out of Boston 20 years ago, which was a scummy, bummy town back then and it seems like Dirty Old Boston has moved to Salem.
