Gotta watch them retirees. They’s a wiley bunch!
It’s not that I don’t think we shouldn’t watch out for terrorists, but can we use a bit of common sense? How are old people and mothers with strollers walking around the mall in the morning any more of a threat than if they’re forced to wait until the mall opens? If you’re concerned that grandpa’s got an AK-47 in his back pocket, then make sure Mall Security watches him. Isn’t that what they’re paid to do? Or are we supposed to expect that he’s a threat when the mall’s nearly empty and Barney Fife can see him clearly, but he won’t try anything funny if there’s a mall full of people?
God, this is starting to turn into the “What stupidity did Homeland Security stir up today?” blog. Sorry.
