Edgewood Towne Centre has really gone downhill over the years -- hope it doesn't become another East Hills Shopping Center. I guess the police can only do so much, and the stores don't seem to be spending enough on security. It takes a lot of nerve to walk out on a restaurant bill -- guess they felt "entitled".

The cops that sit in the first booth every morning wasting my tax dollars should have done something about it.
