@rubberduckmoney: Have you ever had any security incidents? Is theft or violence a bigger concern?

Here's an interesting quote from Paul Waldie's story: “If you put metal detectors in your mall, the people who are your customers are going to say, ‘This place has got real big trouble, we are going to go somewhere else,’ ” said Mike Fenton, director of consulting and client support at Paragon Security, a Toronto-based company that provides security at 56 malls across Ontario.
Would installing metal detectors or searching bags just turn people away?

@bigcam99: Why do you think the North American public wouldn't accept bag checks?

@TS I think you're getting at the big debate on public safety: is it about security or about deeper issues?

Some cities have curfews for young people. For example, those under 16 years old couldn't walk around a mall without adult accompaniment on Friday or Saturday nights. Is that a good idea?
