I no longer go to shopping malls. Being a retiree on a small pension, I cannot afford what they sell.
So I haven't personally witnessed the kind of violence which is now occurring at several of them:
I do have a big question, however - since We The People are spending $65 billion on "homeland security", how come we're not getting any "homeland security"?
Could it be that DHS is maybe watching the wrong people? Even the people they DO watch often commit horrendous crimes.
Here is my suggestion - We need more Paul Blarts (mall cops). He's effective, and he loves what he does.
