nope , you have a whole side of the fence who would rather hang the police for catching these kids and doing what police do when people resist arrest don't grovel well enough.

FTFM.

oh look, i found one!

Congratulations! You found me. Your life is now complete. I get that a lot.

Hehe. Well, I found a new add to my list, so I hope you like light green.

Can we make a separate forum where people can discuss adding people to different lists and who they decide to put on ignore? It really clutters up the threads and I'm pretty sure we don't give a shiat here.

But what we really like, and what definitely aren't wastes of space, are posts where people complain about posts in which people add various people to different lists and such. Because those aren't pointless or anything, and they add so much to the thread.

If you ignore yourself, can you still eat, sleep and shower, or do all those things kind of pass right through your body?

Mr. Potatoass: For years, my town's oldest, and most centrally located shopping mall, was used as secondary transfer point for local mass transit.
The influx of day tripping thuglets over the last 5 years put a stop to that.


This is the problem with the MOA. They established express bus schedules from downtown MPLS to the MOA, and guess what, incident and problems with gang activity grew. The new light rail just makes it worse, sadly.

MoeSzyslak Hand Banana: Have to love watching all the stupid suckers trampling each other like stampeding cattle to save a few dollars on some crap at the mall. Especially when you're sitting comfortably at home with your shopping all done online months before the holidays.

These people weren't there to buy anything. They were there to do exactly what happened.


I thought they were there because they heard some stupid rapper was going to be there and then had fits when they found out he wasn't really going to be there.

I was living in california at the time, but here in austin they built a huge ritzy mall way out on the west side of town (Actually in another little austin border town called bee caves, not even in austin), and the story is they refused to put in public transportation access at the time, because the mall right next to the greyhound station and a big capmetro hub (communter bus) went to complete shiat over the course of 20 years.

and everyone said the mall was racist. and it was racist, or classicist at the very least. but the vast majority of business owners were heartened by the ist. kdis with nothing to do might be more trouble than they are worth.
 
2012-04-25 06:59:37 AM  
this what happened with the mall that was right next to a the greyhound terminal and a collection point for the local bus routes.


Highland Mall, is a shopping mall located in north Austin, Texas, on Airport Boulevard west of I-35 and north of US Route 290. Opened in 1971, Highland Mall was Austin's first suburban shopping mall.[1]

Anchors
Vacant #1 - The former Joske's location at the south end of the mall when it purchased the entire Joske's chain by Dillard's in 1987.[4] Dillard's closed in May 2011.
Vacant #2 - JCPenney, an original tenant when the mall opened in 1971, closed its anchor store in Highland Mall on September 30, 2006.[5]
Vacant #3 - The Dillard's Men's store occupied the anchor store location originally held by Scarbroughs, once Austin's largest locally owned department store chain, from 1992-2009.[6]
Vacant #4 - The former Foley's anchor store was renamed Macy's in September 2006 as a result of Federated Department Stores' purchase of the May Company in 2005.[7] Macy's closed in March 2011.

In addition, the Greyhound bus terminal for Austin is located immediately southeast of the mall.
Mall in decline

Two of the mall's seven retail sectors are closed. Press reports describe the mall as "in decline" and say it is "likely to be demolished in 2010" to make way for a mixed-used development.[8]

On June 26, 2009, Yahoo! reported that it was one of "America's Most Endangered Malls":

While gleaming new stores have been springing up in some parts of Austin, this 38-year-old mall along I-35 has struggled to keep stores open--and avoid embarrassing controversies. Anchor JCPenney left in 2006, and this year Dillard's sued the mall's owners, claiming they let the mall become a "ghost town." The owners countersued, claiming that the suit is part of a scheme to help Dillard's get out of its lease early.
-Rick Newman, Yahoo! Finance[9]

As Austin has grown and expanded in the years since Highland Mall's opening, the demographics of the surrounding neighborhoods, once considered somewhat upscale, have moderated; the mall is the closest major regional shopping center serving the eastern portion of the city, which has traditionally been populated primarily by working-class African American residents. Highland Mall has been known in recent years for large crowds of visitors to the mall during the Texas Relays (a major track and field event held at the University of Texas at Austin), generating controversy and allegations of racial discrimination, or at the least, a less-than-welcoming attitude, on the part of mall management towards the visitors, mainly younger African Americans, many who visit from out-of-state.[10] During the 2009 Texas Relays, management decided to close the mall several hours earlier than normal, presumably in an attempt to control the crowds and promote safety, prompting protests from the local chapter of the NAACP and a possible boycott of the mall (all part of a larger controversy over perceived negative attitudes in Austin towards the Texas Relays and its largely younger Black fan base, which uses the Relays as a social event comparable to the controversial Freaknik events in Atlanta in the early 2000's).[11]

Charles Heimsath, president of an Austin-based real estate research firm, suggested that local malls such as Barton Creek Square and The Domain have siphoned off clientele from Highland Mall.[12] Despite Highland Mall's relative proximity and convenience to the University of Texas at Austin, many UT students elect to use these other shopping venues.

On June 3, 2009, the Austin Chronicle reported that Austin's professional soccer team, the Austin Aztex, were interested in using part of the site for a soccer stadium.[13] The site would have also included "pedestrian-friendly street frontage in a mixed-use design, rapid bus transit and rail right across the street, and structured parking." Grassroots Austin Stadium Supporters (GRASS) was a group that has formed to push for the stadium project.[14]

On May 26, 2010, it was announced that Austin Community College had purchased an 18.5 acre portion of the mall that had previously been leased to Dillard's for "future expansion". [15] Austin Community College would later purchase the entire Highland Mall Property [16].

The mall's Macy's store closed on March 11, 2011, followed by Dillard's in May 2011 for last remaining major stores. Following the assemblage of the entire 80.8 acre parcel by Austin Community College, plans were announced for redevelopment of the area into offices and campus facilites. The mall will remain open for the duration of the current tenants' leases.

2012-04-25 07:53:18 AM  
I have less of an issue of them rioting and more of an issue with what they are rioting over. Riot over the economy, gas prices, the 1% not paying enough taxes, political corruption, middle class jobs going overseas, or college tuition costs? That makes sense. Riot over the lack of some "celebrity" not being there? That is stupid. Another sign of the descent into bread and circuses.

2012-04-25 08:44:08 AM  
I was there this weekend with my daughter when a bunch of MN Gangstahs started up on each other. The mall cops came running and I was horrified but not surprised to see all seven of them looked like they were going to die from running. the last to arrive came wheezing by us and sounded like a TB case.

Not sure why I am posting this.

You're right, they don't. Drunk people getting in a brawl at a bar: fairly common occurance. Sports teams getting into a fight after a perceived intentional injury to one of the players: also fairly common.

But show me the last time a group of white kids rioted at a mall over something as stupid as a pair of sneakers or some idiot rapper.

The malls around here, the non-exclusive ones, have slowly been turning into mini ghettos. This is happening all around the country, apparently. It's only a matter of time after this happens that people with money stop coming, then the stores start closing. I'm always fascinated by dead malls stories for some reason, like the ones on deadmalls.com.

The malls around here with Macy's, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales, etc, still seem to be doing relatively fine.

One such mall, The Mall at Millennia, used to have a dress code when it opened. Guess who complained about it being discriminatory, and they finally did away with it.

In the past decade, I so rarely go to them anyway. They're a bit of a dying concept, even if I still enjoy stopping by one on occasion. I've probably actually purchased something from a shopping mall MAYBE five times in the past ten years.

one of the larger malls in the county is a dead zone now, and is basically known as "the place that gets dark early in the day".

sad too; we used to always go there as kids.

they're building a Wegmans about 3 miles or so from it that will also be an "open air" shopping center deal. people are hoping that's the final nail in the coffin for the mall and they just tear it down.

The awful Derbyshire truth is that stupid, rude, physically rough and vulgar culture-linked-to-race packs of black kids is a problem. I'm sure its cultural but I can't explain why they can't just respect order and reasonable checking of impulses in a public space. Sick of it and ashamed to death to notice it, but its real.
