  1. I would bet “dollars to doughnuts” neither of these “individuals” were probably legally allowed to be “packing”. That is the first problem. You KNOW what Burton’s fate should be — will never happen. It is the Mall’s responsibility to keep the patrons safe. They employ a security company to handle this. As long as things are low-key, life is good. My question is that once this tragedy happened, did both parties decide that there was a need for MORE security (as in bodies) ?? It is sad that someone died, and someone innocently got caught in the cross-fire, but ultimately, it was the stupid Burton, who thought that the solution is a probably illegally carried gun. Unfortunately it happened too late to help at Regency Mall, but RCSO might offer, and the Mall owners agree, that a substation inside the Mall, MIGHT be a great idea. Somebody will be writing a check.

  2. If they don’t do something about their security people with disposable income will go elsewhere if online shopping doesn’t get them first. They have a huge issue and the refuse to address it. Maybe when they see stores closing and they lose revenue they can address it before it’s to late. I don’t go there anymore and I know a lot of others than will not go in there either because they have let it become less than safe. The warnings are there..Regency ignored them and paid the price, Kroger across the street already closed…how much longer?
