    I haven't been to a mall for over a decade. In the 70s and 80s the family types and elderly where there. The family types for shopping...the elderly for a safe climate controlled area for walking.

    Last time I went to one I had going to for a long time...it was a mess. Products were aimed at a more ghetto crowd and the criminal element was very obvious. There is nothing at a mall I can't find online (usually at a lower price) or at Walmart, Target, or KMart. Going to a mall is just asking for trouble.

    I can't buy bread, bologna, or dog food at my mall. I pretty much only visit to go to sears.

    I only go to the mall when requred with my better half, something I just gotta do...it's the price I pay for buying guns, she buys shoes... but never sunglasses
    I would rather live my life as if there is a God,
    And die to find out there isn't, than live my life
    As if there isn't, and die to find out there is.
    God Bless

    $1800 or $800, it's still typical ghetto behavior/culture...can you say "bling"?
    Sorry, I thought that it was an upscale mall and the perp stole the sunglasses from a lady. I assumed that a lady who would buy a pair of Cartier sunglasses would have some sort of homeowner's insurance or something that might cover theft. My mistake.

    I think our local mall is posted "No Weapons", so yes, I have no need to visit it.

    This is the high-end mall in the Detroit metro area where the crime occurred:

    Home Page | The Somerset Collection

    Yesterday around 12 PM I stumbled across AM 1200 that was discussing the event. The listeners were expressing a very different take on this crime. Most seemed to feel it was justified since the "rich white people" had cut funding needed to pay for Detroit's police - I kid you not. I would have prefered to post a link to a podcast so you could experience this exchange for yourselves but all I found was a link to listen live:

    WCHB-AM: NewsTalk 1200 | Detroit, News, Michigan, Talk, Radio

    Please be advised that if yesterday's show was indicative of the racial hatred expressed on this station you may find it disturbing. I certainly did.

    Yep, there are segments of our society which resent, even hate me simply because of my complexion. I understand that, and try to govern my actions and my outlook based upon that understanding.

    One of our local municipalities had turned down many attempts over many years to put in three bus stops around their mall (Fairfield Commons, Beavercreek) that would allow more access to the mall from people downtown. This mall has many fewer problems with crime than the Dayton mall only 12 miles away. Pretty smart if you ask me.
    If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

    When I grew up we had a nice mall nearby. About the time I turned 18 they put in a downtown expressway and bus routes to/from the city. The predators from the city used those buses to access and prey on lots of "rich white folks".

    patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.

    This is ^^^^^^^^^

    how I feel.

    My wife and kids think they are safe at Great lakes Crossing, Partridge Creek and the like.
    I don't go, as I never have time to go with them, I just say, "glad we have insurance on you guys"
    Its a horrible thing to say, but I can't stop them from going.

    I dislike malls just like I dislike doctors. The longer I stay away from them....the better off I am.

    I hope you and Mrs. oneshot at least have taken the proper precautions and preparations for when she's out with the fam. I know where these malls are located, but you/she can never take anything for granted, nor can you be too safe.
