My prediction about Valley View Mall

Valley View Mall is starting a policy of if your are not 18 and unescorted then don't tresspass her after 6 o'clockpm on Friday and Saturday night.
These people are moving from Valley View Mall to the Valley View Wall-Mart parking lot at 10pm when the mall closes. This is going too cause them to move to Wal-Mart's lot at 6pm. I hope Wall-Mart has enough security.

When I managed the Village Courts Shopping Center on Boonesboro Road in Lynchburg, the center had an evening problem with teenagers. When I added additional security, the kids moved down the street to the Food Lion shopping center. All you can do is move them somewhere else.

Amen, Danny, they move to the next available property.

Financed some apartments in Alabama many years ago. Property behind it had a rough reputation - drugs, prostitution, a little gang recruiting.

The owner finally cracked down and the BGs moved onto our property. The owner statred having increased expenses and high vacancies.

I called him about it and he said things were bad. People were shooting guns on-site and everything. I told him to get with the local police, etc.

Three days later I get an envelope in the mail with what feels like empty .22 casings taped to cardboard. Sure 'nuf, inside were 12 casings and a note..."Just in case you didn't believe me!"

I did believe him, but figured he needed a visit, so I flew down, met with him and the local law enforcement. Moved a deputy into one of the apartments and a local PD K9 officer would come by on a regular basis. The dog destroyed a lady'd

Took about a month for the BGs to move out, trashing the apartments as they left, and move about three miles up the road to what they thought was a more hospitable environment. This property was owned by a local DA - bad move on BGs part.

Our local PD here are very visible in smaller strip centers when businesses are closing or during times when the take-out restaurants are busy. It has really lessened problems here.

Freedom has a taste to those who fight and almost die, that the protected will never know.
