Public Spaces and Violence

The news today is reporting another round of unrest, disorderly conduct, and generally criminal behavior in a shopping mall in Philly.

"They were pelting cops with fountain sodas and all kinds of trash," Anthony Clark, a vendor inside the mall, told WPVI."

Peter at Bayou Renaissance Man (and you ARE reading him daily, aren't you?) has spoken before about personal safety and keeping away from places where large crowds gather as part of your overall personal safety plan.

Tuesday's incident in Philadelphia came after more than a dozen similar disturbances in malls in at least nine states on Monday.

This just cements that lesson in place.

This is why I avoid the shopping mall like the plague.
