"I don't want to see it have a negative impact on the mall because I think we've made a lot of strides as far as safety on the mall and I don't want to see that go down the drain," said Robert Sawrey, owner of the Downtown Grille
I think it's a bit late for that! I would not bring my Family to the Mall after sunset for anything! Just look at all the crime that has enveloped the area the past few years and not all of it repored on!

My family was attacked near Lee Park a couple of years ago, and it never made the papers. It also soured me on the downtown mall - I'm already long gone.

I really don't understand what there is to peice together. Seems like a bunch of drunks got thrown out of a bar and got stopped before their alcohol fueled rampage.

Mix alcohol and the members of this lodge and what do you get? No impulse control, at all. Some years ago they had a special to do at the Main St bar? They were out in the street raising cain till the cops had to come and break it up. The bar never had another venue like that. Only a fool would venture anywhere around the mall at night.

The X-Lounge shuttered its doors because of unruly crowds that had migrated from Wolfie's after that dive closed. Proactive policing?

If you expect to profit from selling alcohol, and thereby creating a population of potential crime victims and perps, don't expect me to subsidize protection for your interests, especially because, just like Cruz, I would not bring my family to the downtown mall, anyhow. Hire an off duty city police as a security guard, if you want protection from the situation you profit from creating.

This is why I don't go out in Charlottesville anymore...All it takes is 1 idiot to mess up a good thing! Not only is it the younger people messing it up for everybody, but it's the old heads too, that are out acting like fools. Then they got the nerve to blame alcohol as a reason to be "RATCHET"! I get drunk all the time, and know how to conduct myself as a 22 year old lady in the public. Guess you can take the rat out the hood, but you can't take the hood out of the rat!

Good job CPD...I hope the officer receives an award as he certainly deserves one.

You hand out awards petty easy, Maybe you should go to some other cities where cops have shot innocent people.

It's been years since I've visited that area. When I was working in that area I watched it degrade not just because of the criminal elements who liked to hang out at the mall; but also the yuppies who moved into the expensive apartments and started whining about the noise of bagpipes and guitars.

That whole area is nothing more than a place that hippies, yuppies and drunken college students. They can keep their slowly decaying "downtown" and share if with the occupiers and all the other useless members of our society.

Howcome the downtown Elks are the "improved" version?

Its like New Coke, anyone remember that?

Seems like whenever something is called improved it actually is a lot worse.

Carry. Open carry, concealled carry,.22 revolver or Desert Eagle .50 Caliber. Or just your basic Glock in 9mm.

Don't be a victim. Dial 911 (dial-a-prayer) if you have been victimized. Dial .357 if you don't wish to be victimized.

Shootem. Come out blazing and layem all down. Every last miscreant.
