No Loitering At Hawthorn (Sic) Crossings Strip Mall? That's A Laugh!
Blame Brian Thao Worra and his Facebook discussion about overdosing on shamrock shakes. I got a powerful hankerin' for a shamrock shake, so I walked to McDonalds at Hawthorn (Sic) Crossings strip mall. If I wanted, I could have bought something green in the parking lot, as well.
The photo above shows...
...a NO LOITERING sign at Hawthorn (Sic) Crossings. This is, of course, a bitter joke. Very little BESIDES loitering seems to happen at Hawthorne (Sic) Crossings. Just a few blocks away, near 29th and Aldrich, two children were caught in gunfire, probably violence fueled by the drug trade. Meanwhile, this strip mall is a pus-filled reservoir of drug trade activity, taking place in plain sight. And the mall management appears to simply look the other way.
The shamrock shake was pretty good, though.
