Oh, those zany teens! Cheeky little devils.

A brawl forced the temporary lockdown of San Francisco’s downtown Westfield Mall Sunday evening and ended with several people being detained, authorities said.

As officers attempted to stop the fighting, they were attacked and assaulted.

Westfield Mall is near the Oakland bridge.  Violence there a coincidence?  I think not.

Obviously more baton rouge is needed.

This is now a very different America, where you have to assess the risks of going certain places before heading out.

Places that were once "safe" or fun are slowly getting taken over as hives of violence. From malls to fast food places, you will notice that normal people are starting to avoid them. In less than 10 years, we will joke about all of these places as we do Chuck E Cheese. There will be "no-go zones" for the civilized people who value their safety.

Yes and no. Below Union Sq on market. A block south is SoMa and a block NW is the Tenderlion.

Basically, its bordered by shit on a few sides.

When I lived there SOMA was getting nice, with the food truck market and a lot of new office space. The Ross and Safeway were a disaster though, and this was 8 years ago. The Tenderloin will always be the Tenderloin though.

Maybe there will be exclusive "membership only" locations.

It'll be "racist", but that's what we've come to that's what "they" want.

I guess SoMa is a broad term. There are decent parts and then you have the 6th st corridor.

Security at the doors and a policy of nobody under the age of 18 unless accompanied by a parent at all times.
No ID, no enter.
With facial recognition software as good as it is these days, keep a up to date trespass database and prosecute if they violate it.

If they don't get a handle on this, brick and mortar shopping centers (even high end ones) will be dead in 10 years max.

So true, there's an erstwhile upscale mall not far from me where folks have been starting to avoid going to.

Wellington Greens, located in an upscale area is becoming loaded with a crowd that is majority THUG and folks have been avoiding it resulting in a very large number of empty stores and restaurants.

You can go there during the day, but at night or on weekends it is filled with folks that make shoppers feel "uncomfortable".

Most of the upscale stores that used to be located there have shut their doors and the replacements are "athletic shoe" stores which abound.

You've hit the nail on the head.

I was recently in a very high end shopping center looking at expensive watches.
Nothing makes you NOT want to pay out $10k for a watch more than looking at the gauntlet of thugs you'd have to run to get from the store to your car.

You'd think that the malls' ownerships and managements would have figured it out but they're either dumb and blind or pretending to be.
