I am guessing you have not looked around at all the closed businesses or shopped at the remaining sub-par reatil outlets in the area. Target usually only runs two or three of their 27 lanes even during peak hours. Most of the retailers in the area have really fast check outs. I can just go to the empty mall and get a good feeling as to why Simpson dumped the mall and if crime property stats may be down (no qualified victims).

Anyone can manipululate numbers given to the public....what GCPD being upfront?...just keep an eye on crime mapping dot com. These incident reports are supplied directly from Gwinett co. to them....there were 75 in a two mile radius of the mall in the ,last 7 days. Bernie Maddoff could probably slide figures around at least competive to these PR notes

I live in the area ..highway landscaping improvements make a mugging feel warm and fuzzy..the area is a ghetto ...crime is unexceptable...possible if there is a crime drop which crime mapping doesn't show (quite a cluster around pleasant hill mall area daily)..it may corelate to the new immigration/ deportation legislation....gangster staying home. CID needs to show where they came up with the statistics...anyone can bend the numbers ask Bernie Madolkof.

Really...I think some one may have gone to an early happy hour....keep an eye on crime mapping .com. Late last fall there were many weeks with over 500 incidents from the mall down to the Decalb county line. ....in a 7 day span. It is unsafe to go out at night and strangely enough plenty of afternoon assaults/armed robberies on the streets..pan handling and lets not forget the horrible incident at the car rental that claimed the life of a beautiful teen trying to earn a living....right down the street from the precinct.

If all the benefits and no issuance of any personal/professional liscences are provided to people who can't prove they have a legal right to be in our country ...including work not school.............they would probably deport themselves. It would save us a considerable amout of head ache and money. I have no problem with anyone who has followed the legal path of residency and came to our country ...as all the people in the past have immigrated. It is crazy that squatters feel they are intitled.

Why are we basically giving squatters rights to people who knowingly broke the law. These people (illegal imigrants ..not undocumeted workers) have knowingly placed themselves in this situation....and have broken well published codes regarding their premeditated actions.

They became criminals as soon as they knowingly snuck across our borders. I am talking about all illegals and have no predudice against hispanics. I wish these people well if they were to try the same with North Korea, China, Turkey, Russia, Iran or Burma. They would probably be very unhappy with the legal results of their actions.

In regards to proclaiming some kind of rights.....sorry those are provided to people who have a vested nterests with documentation. It becomes a non issue if you are a visitor.

Scratchinmyhead 2 years, 1 month ago on DUI suspect charged with trying to run over police

Although all the above comments are valid points...why would a bar...motivated by profit fill someone to the gills with liquor and not expect these results. The bar has acted very irresponsibly in not cutting him off and as a final result sicking the cops on him. Alchohol awareness classes for bar people teach such things as recognition of levels of impairment....methods of reducing the ability of getting a drink served..and responsibility of cutting off the individual from future beverages. For the bar employee to say he was s... faced shows there was and probably still symptomatic problems with the bar regarding the safety of the community. They need to be fined...put on a probationary status or have their pouring liscence yanked off the wall. It just doesn't make since for a bar employee to whine about their actions...and his after making such an incredible bad call by continuing to serve a "trashed" person and then not try to difuse the situation responsibly. An impaired person is not completly responsible for their own actions and that is why dramshop laws or third party liability laws are on the books.
