Craigslist Posting Claims "Huge Brawl @Greece Ridge Mall" Tuesday Night

  
"What is this mall coming to according to a caller on the Wease show a group of 25-30 young women had a huge fight and most of them ended up fighting in the wading pool right by the Santa display,

One girl was trying to stab another girl with box cutters and chasing her through the water while hundreds of shoppers looked on.

Lets see if this makes the TV news or do they try to keep it quiet."

SCATS ~~ Apparently 13WHAM reads craigslist, too!

At times being innovative equates to revisiting a past practice that was either ignored or improperly implemented. In the case of the Greece Ridge Mall, said practice is CPTED, or crime prevention through environmental design.

Damn, I gotta get on the alert list for them Brawl at the Mall events.

Definitely be cheaper than going to the stupid movie, and I could video them and put together something for PayPerView, maybe make a couple bucks.

Hey, times are tough, anything for a buck.

What ever happen to the good old days when your signifacant other can't be trusted, then wash your hands of he/she and move on. Most kids now a days don't think past the second they are in and don't care too!

Sadly, it is not possible to keep the inner city trash in the inner city. These are not Greece youths, they are Obama's 2012 voters from downtown. Only cure I see is to stop busses at the Greece line.

Embrace it, no one with any self respect would live in Greece.

Now the citizens of Greece have to put up with the losers from the city. Midtown and Irondequiot mall losers have moved on to Greece ridge mall. They already ruined the carnival held there now we have to deal/ fear/pay taxes for the extra police patrols. I live in Greece but must drive to Eastview if I want to avoid these immature stupid people. They obviously have no morals fighting like that next to Santa! 20 year old female behaving this way is outrageous ! LOSER!!!!

I'm seeing that different media appear to be slanting this in different ways. If you read the D&C version, you'd think only two people were involved. The 13WHAM report seems to say otherwise. Which leads me to wander "Why does the D&C sanitize these stories so much?"

I voted for Obama, as did many people in the suburbs and in the city. Does that make me a mall trublemaker. Should I have to wear a scarlet letter or a pink triangle?

Scats how dare you alert citizens to this "minor"
incident at our "safe" mall.After all, our duly elected "officials"
are busy amending dog laws!

2:03 is racist Republican filth. That's not name calling SCATS - that's a simple statement of fact.

SCATS said...

To 10:03PM ~~ Actually, the words you chose to express yourself make you just as bad as any other post here. I was watching to see how far this would disintegrate. It went pretty far, pretty fast. Instead of talking about whether our mall is going the way of Medley Center and what we can do to stop it, stereotyping the trouble-makers became the focus. They won again.

It happened at 7:00? Are they enforcing the curfew anymore? I realize the person arrested was 20 - but what about the other 15+ kids?

Scats, both Fox and WHAM carried the news about the fight.Apparently is was two people, backed by supported who cheered their side on. One arrest. Unfortunately the Mall is a good spot to meet to "settle" these things. Glad here were police here to react as quickly as they did.

SCATS said...

To 3:16AM ~~ The curfew only applies on weekends.

To 7:38AM ~~ At the time I posted this story yesterday morning, only WHAM had it on their site. As the day went on, Greece got their mouthpiece Lt. Phelan on TV to downplay the damage that had been done. He sanitized it from a mob to an incident between two people with onlookers in the unfortunate location next to Santa. You need to remember that the discussion on the radio yesterday morning framed this entirely differently.

Today, 13WHAM's website has a detailed account of the incident that seems to be in opposition to Phelan's. I'll post it out front.

Bottom line ~~ Greece's "leaders" are scared to death that Medley Center's demise is our future. Based on these sorts of incidents (and we've had several this year alone!), I'd say that's very likely and there's NOTHING more that can be done to stop it. Wait until Walmart arrives.

Mr. Conlon, Mr. Auberger, Mr. Morris?
Your plan to address the issue?

Stop winning, Greece is a joke and no one is going to do anything about it.

SCATS said...

To 10:08AM ~~ What issue ??

To 10:36AM ~~ Greece stopped "winning" when Auberger got re-elected ;)

Excuse me? How is identifying a racist "just as bad" as being a racist? I don't buy the equivalency. Engaging with a racist with even a modicum of respect gives credence to their views. You don't debate with racists... you call them out and then watch them scurry for the dark corners they came from.

SCATS said...

To 4:22PM ~~ Calling out someone accomplishes what? I bet that at least one of the "ladies" fighting at the mall was "called out" ... thus the fight.

People are standing their ground at the mall in an aggressive manner. Make sure you let them pass if they are exiting a store or vendor at the food court. They are looking for any reason to start something. They are setting up that area as their own for the duration until the mall closes because the rest of us that spend money there are fleeing.
Do not engage. Repeat do not engage.
Northgate and widewaters are building and renovating the freestanding structures until Walmart starts construction. Dewey Ave will become little Henrietta.
What route will all the delivery and construction trucks take to get to 3800 dewey...northgate walmart? Who will pay for the added wear and tear on the roads? Possible route 390 exit at Vintage to dewey north? or more handily same 390 exit , turn north on Mt read and then right turn east on English or Britton? Wegmans will be gone so there will be some more attractive vacant building there to add to our array.
Greece must have a very random Master Plan.

To 11:12AM ~~ Master plan? What's that??? (note extreme sarcasm)
