Don't know any details, but I just saw on the news that there was a teen violence outbreak at the Castleton Mall. It just proves that current efforts to curb teen violence are like squeezing a water balloon, it just moves "the water" someplace else.

They had to call buses to transport them all back home. They just moved to Castleton because IMPD is now patroling downtown Indy. Next it will be Washington Square and Greenwood. In my opinion, they should have all been arrested and had to pay fines instead of free bus rides home. If they keep doing nothing to these kids then people will quit shopping altogether and it will hurt businesses even more.

That is spot on. Welcome to public transit's downside. It is a cheap, and effective way to transport large groups of troublemakers to various parts of the city. How much money are we spending now to patrol Circle Center? Now we will have to add just as many to Castleton, and see where the bubble goes from there. Probably not Washington Square because there really isn't anything there to ruin.

Washington Square has seen it's better days, thanks to the downfall of the eastside. Greenwood Park Mall is not far behind. It isn't as safe as it once was, gangs of teens roam the mall. But again I ask...where are the owners, Simon Properties in all this? They don't really seem to interested, at least not until someone gets killed. IPD, Simon and Greenwood PD need to get their heads together, as warmer approaches these problems are only going to get worse, much worse.

The urban youths are subject to conditioning just like any other animal. Take away what they want in downtown and they will migrate to more opportunistic areas to carry out their crimes. Castleton is no Fishers or Carmel, but they will soon enter Hamilton County and then they will be heavily dealt with. Fishers and Carmel are generally very safe areas, but with urban youths on the prowl, that will certainly be challenged in the years ahead.

It has already started to impact the Fishers/Carmel areas. I don't think anybody is willing to do what it takes to stop it. They hardly mentioned the fact that one of the 15, or 16 year olds was arrested when the police saw him hiding a gun under a car. This whole thing was probably just seconds away from being a gunfight. The news called it a "show of force" by the police, but it's time to stop "showing" and start "doing". If they are carrying guns illegally, they are nothing short of domestic terrorists. If you disagree with me, look at the definition of terrorism.

I am confident that Fishers and Carmel both have the backbone to stand up to urban youth issues. You don't sculpt successful towns/cities by allowing urban thugs to walk all over you. When the Marion County urbans arrive, they will be heavily dealt with. Most people living in these areas moved there to get away from urban unrest. Their high tax base is something Hamilton County wants (and needs) to keep, so keeping the trash out is a top priority.

We need to go back to the 60's.

When white-people could freely walk anywhere with no threat of harm.

Bring back slavery!

Demand curfews for black folks!

Segregation works!

Riots were not common in the U.S. until black people invented them in the late 60's.

Why can't they just accept their place at the back of the bus?

It's good to see the kinship among this thread. WHITE POWAH!!!!

Rioting should be exclusive to whites as an after-game affair. The right to assemble should be the provenance of God fearing white folks.

Yes,we must let mall management know that too many black kids within their temples to bling scare the crap out of us with dainty sensibilities. Why heck! That's why we move to the suburbs. We don't want to live amongst the hired help!! Jesus would so approve of our altruistic efforts to avoid them completely. To act as if they don't exist is next to godliness!!!

Here's a nice look ((At the link))) at the way things once were. When the country was white,peaceful and black people knew their place! BEFORE THOSE PEOPLE INVENTED RIOTING IN THE LATE SIXTIES!!

You might want to check the stats for theft, home invasion, robberies in those areas. I don't think any of us are exempt.

They both recently ranked very high in low crime stats nationally.

http://www.indystar.com/article/20130218/LOCA...

Additionally, Fishers was #1 safest out of 405 small cities/towns in 2011. These ranking are based on numbers of murders, aggravated assault, armed robbery, and rape.

Comparatively, there is not a safer place in Indiana than Fishers for a populated area. The secret is to attract affluent citizens who care about their community and will not tolerate urban unrest. Black people are welcome if they are peaceful, but not the gangbangers and scum that hang out at Circle Center and now Castleton mall.

Sorry Linda, I can only go by experience. I have too many friends in the Westfield, Fishers area, who are "affluent", and have been victims of various crimes, including assault and home invasions. Maybe these areas have the money and means to cover up the crime in their areas. Therefore making it look more attractive and gain national attention.
