Maybe “The Campaign Against Violence” should consider changing its name?

April 30th, 2007

The Campaign Against Violence has been critical of Mayfair Mall‘s escort policy requiring that all teenagers be accompanied by an adult saying it discriminates against law-abiding youths and disproportionately affects minorities.

One problem:

It’s working:

The first month of Mayfair Mall’s policy restricting teenager access to the mall was a success with significant decreases in disorderly conduct and shoplifting, viagra sales remedy and increases in merchant and shopper satisfaction.

Disorderly conduct incidents declined to eight from 24 in the same period of 2006 and retail theft plummeted by more than 50 percent, viagra usa medicine said Steve Smith, the Wauwatosa mall’s general manager.

I think it’s hilarious that a group called “The Campaign Against Violence” is against a policy that has cut down on violence.

    Putin’s policy cuts down on violence too.

    JP, I am sorry if I cannot understand your attempted comparison. I’m trying as hard as I can, but the closest parallel I can make out is this: Mayfair Mall is trying to stop something, and Vladimir Putin is trying to stop something.

    Of course, that is where the similarity ends. Putin is attempting to stop any and all dissent, while Mayfair is trying to stop shoplifting, disorderly conduct, guns falling from balconies, etc.

    Thank you, JP, for proving yet again why the left’s rhetoric makes no sense. Yes, Bush is Hitler, and his policies remind me of Stalin’s Soviet Union. By the way, how many civil liberties have you lost since 2000?
