Criminals are being allowed to break the law

Send them shopping!

Business security risk assessment: criminals are being allowed to break the law—shopping! The mere thought of it would put a big smile on her face, especially when it entails clothing or jewelry shopping. Give a woman your credit card and drop her off at the mall and you will have the happiest wife/girlfriend ever.

Not anymore. The chances are better that she might get home scarred for life, or she might not even return home at all. Robbers target shopping center in Salt Rock

Criminals are targeting Shopping Malls

Reality

No, this is not another doom-and-gloom article. It’s a reality.
We, as shopping mall owners, shop owners, and the like, are allowing criminals to break the law, wielding guns and hammers. Consider the incidents at Kenilworth Mall and, on the very same day, the attack on a jewelry shop in Claremont.

It seems like online shopping in the safety of our own homes is our destiny. But, then again, is your house  really safe?

Yes, you have an alarm and you have cameras. Great. Did it stop the criminals and did they caught? Thus,  I think you can answer that for yourself.

The ripple-effect of crime

Crime cannot undo itself. It cannot simply be erased and be forgotten.
The impacts of such attacks, whether a hold-up, attempted hijacking, or armed robbery causing harm, endure indefinitely. Victims may not dwell on it daily, and you might believe in facing fear head-on. Yet, a single trigger can bring memories rushing back, akin to Celine Dion’s lyrics in “It’s all coming back to me now.”

In conclusion, there is just no escaping the impact that crime has on a person.
