Extremely short sighted at best, racist at worst.

Hopefully this never gains any traction.
I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

My wife was just telling me about how the Giant we used to shop at has closed. It was across from the Cromwell light rail stop - apparently a plasma donation center opened in the same shopping center, so addicts are selling their blood, and then immediately buying drugs from the dealers who now hang out there all day. There's all sorts of petty crime at the shopping center now, so people stopped going, and Giant closed.

 

Apparently there's a real problem there, although it seems to me that the issue is the plasma donation center, not the light rail, even if that's how some of the addicts/drug deals get to the shopping center.

Up in White Marsh, after what happened at the mall last week, they are trying to get the bus lines closed down by 11, as opposed to 130.

Probably a good idea but didnt the melee occur during mall hours? That bus closure won't do much to help things.

I think so but honestly, I didn't pay that much attention to it.  I just know people aren't happy about it (plus, there as been increased crime in eastern BMore county as well, so that doesn't help).

 

Really, the damn mall should be torn down.

White Marsh hasn't been too bad since I've been here. I mean, it's been six months, or whatever.

What's wrong with it?

Also, for that matter, are there any good malls left? I mean, Arundel Mills and Towson Town, I guess?

Well the fliers that were distributed calling for the bus to stop running to the mall were blatantly racist. So good luck getting anything accomplished when you resort to that.

Not surprised. A lot of the reasons for people disliking public transportation (not all) is to keep the colored folk out. 

 

Still...this seems just too obvious. Like...insanely so.

Well, we don’t know how many flyers were out there, who made it or anything like that.

We also know what The Sun has become, so writing some sensationalized article trying to stir up trouble wouldn’t be beneath them.

Btw..not saying there isn’t anything racist behind this but this isn’t something circulating up here. This isn’t something that people are outraged by for what I have seen, so I wonder how big of a deal this is vs a few dipshits being dumb.

All it takes is for one a-hole to go nuclear with racial stuff and make headlines.

 

From posting on other forums too, I can tell you that the feelings expressed on that flier are shared by many people.

It can make headlines but just because the flier exists, doesn’t mean there aren’t reasoned arguments for what they are looking to do.

Basically, this article is missing s lot of substance and details, so it really shouldn’t matter in the overall scheme of things.

The flyer is terrible and the few assholes who are involved deserve everything they get.

Sure. But once you go racial, forget it. You lose any grounds you had to do anything.

I can see why people want to limit bus service to the mall. I think it's the wrong approach to addressing the issue of crime/safety issues.
