To me it is amazing that something like that hasn’t already happened. It sure is low-tech, low-cost terrorism. And the damage to the retail industry? Unbelievable!
Ever since 9/11 I’ve been saying a mall attack is coming, and I’m not talking a lone wolf type attack, more like Mumbai.
Most malls, particularly in middle America have unarmed rent-a-cops as security and most have a no weapons policy so almost zero defense against that kind of attack. Could do serious serious damage to our psyche in a very short amount of time with a coordinated attack on two or three malls. And it would all be over before any real police response could even arrive.
Amazed, and highly grateful, it hasn’t happened.
