This is Why Amazon's Dominating Retail: At Mall in 93% Black Zip Code in Metro Atlanta, 100 Cars Broken Into in One Night
Nothing more than demographic realities reflected in the Visible Black Hand of Economics.
Which bring us to life in the 30038 zip code outside of Atlanta in DeKalb County, a 93% black community. Home to Stonecrest Mall, this zip code's virtually devoid of white residents.
What type of community exists in a world with a paucity of whites? [Nearly 100 cars broken into at the same metro Atlanta mall in 1 night, WSB-TV, 10-7-18]:
DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. - Nearly 100 cars were broken into at Stonecrest Mall Friday night, officials say.
Channel 2's Tyisha Fernandes spoke with a nail technician contractor who works at a beauty salon in the mall, who didn't want to be identified. She said there's no security cameras around the mall and thieves know it.
"I was told there were cameras around here but there was never any cameras around here so that means our safety's In jeopardy," she said.
She's concerned that with the holidays right around the corner, more people could be in danger.
She was there Friday when dozens of cars were broken into -- including hers. She gave Fernandes a photo that shows her busted window. She says someone rummaged through her car and stole everything in sight.
"I was actually with a client and an officer from over here at the precinct came to me and was like 'Ma'am, please don’t tell me the Chevy Impala's yours,'" she said.
She noticed her car wasn't the only one that was burglarized. Police told her nearly 100 cars had been broken into.
The victims were a mix of mall employees and customers. She says police told her they spotted 3 suspects who were probably part of a crew robbing vehicles.
Police chased them but the suspects ran into the woods. The salon employee's demanding more security -- and more cameras.
"It's going to hurt us if customers feel unsafe coming over here parking their vehicles," she said. "So you know, we can lose."
Fernandes tried talking with security but couldn't get any answers about cameras.
And you wonder why online shopping continues to capture more and more retail market share...
