Now that they have the YEP program there it's actually better. I would avoid Saturday nights though.

Yes but pick your times when you go. I only go during the day, usually early. Park close and not behind a large vehicle that blocks the view of your car from the mall cameras.

This robbery was just after lunch. It doesn't matter.

Don't forget to check your car every 15 minutes to see if a big truck has parked next to it that blocks the mall cameras. You will have to move your car then.

When I go out, I usually carry a gun and a hubby. It's not possible to go together every time we need something, but we try.

Ah America, where we have to carry guns to the mall and will likely have to drive an armored car to the grocery store soon. Tell me again what's cool about being a criminal?

The Mall: There needs to be more security, hire ambassadors, install more bright lights on all sides, more police, and more cameras with signs saying they are being watched 24 hours. Cut off the paths behind the mall leading into Arbor Station. Arbor Station has been the most affected by crime and perps running into the area since the mall opened. Nothing was done to protect Arbor Station residents. NOTHING. A sign needs to go up at the back, side and front entrance stating no cut through traffic, residents only. Then enforce it with tickets. Arbor Station needs to start back the off duty police security patrol asap. Mall goers need to stop leaving anything at all inside their car and walking off. Police: Start a Business Watch at the Mall, and all the way down Douglas Blvd., then all the way bank up and down Chapel Hill. Employ the new text alert system in Douglas County. It is free.

All you have to do to get this is have your property tax raised. You can have all the cops you want if you want your property tax to be equal to your house payment. More cops equal more government. Government is not the answer. The mall should never have been built to begin with. Malls are crime and traffic magnets. Its to late for DC now. Its going to be a slow death.
ahh veiled racism

This mall has destroyed Arbor Station. Those are facts. The city and leadership here placed developers above the needs of We the People living here. They sold our constitution down the tubes. They said you have no rights to protect your private property from the big companies, up above. They refused to listen to the people back when it was built, they refuse to listen to the people today.

Spam, nuts and clueless? Go look at the facts. Look at the maps! Compare then to today. The evidence is right in front of you. You rank #1 in foreclosure rate in the state. Why is that? Wipe out, go away, we don't care, that is why.
Where is your detention for the mall? Chapel Hill Stewart Mill road?
Where are your downstream impact studies required by law?
Where is your wastewater and stormwater mixing together and flowing into the public water supply? Clean water laws of 72.
Where is the 1975 stormwater and erosion sedimentation laws?
Does the US constitution or State constitution exist in Douglasville, or do you just keep counting on ignorance that people don't understand the maps and what you created here?
People go research these facts, what your leaders have done to you is beyond comprehension, while asking you to pick up more fees and tax.
Like somebody told me yesterday, you aren't going to worry about me, the Feds are going to be all over you here. You are so out of compliance it is beyond belief and beyond America basic liberties.
The feds are going to make you comply, why should I try?

Let me say it as plain as I can ...ready...when a town see's a increase in blacks it will see a increase in crime. I'm not saying whites don't commit crimes they do! Statistics proves it just look it up! I sure miss Earl Lee...

. Big Dave your right you know why Shannon closed? Crime! Blacks move in whites ran to sell before their value hits rock bottom. Then who is left in town? Blacks because whitie has moved out he knows what is next. Crime, Stores Closing, Drugs. It's just a simple fact that has proven itself time and time again. Call me a racist but I'm right and don't mind being straight forward about it.

Mostly, yes. There was the shooting a few years ago and I know someone that had a gun pulled on him in the parking lot. Those are not common experiences and can happen anywhere.
