There's been a lot more crime in this neighborhood just lately, break-ins, home invasions, car theft, etc. There's another minority here in the general area, more than there used to be, and in this case I'm not talking about Mexicans. When the criminals are caught, they are preponderantly of this group.
There was a smash and grab at the Neiman Marcus store at the mall yesterday, a huge commotion. First reports were that there was an active shooter. People were running this way and that. Locking themselves in store rooms. Running for the exits. I'm so glad I didn't go when I thought I would. I couldn't even run if I had to. Neither can my son any more.
Both of us need shoes. We know a shoe store in the mall that carries the brand we want, but we decided since all the shootings that we'd rather find somewhere else to get them. And then this happened. We were all lucky this time.
