Sad that a woman isn't safe at a busy store at noon. Time to take out the trash.

Wouldn't he be surprised

If she pulled out her gun and shot him between the eyes.

Criminals are running wild in

Criminals are running wild in the streets. Don't sit in your car texting in the parking lot, regardless of what time of day it is. Crank the car and leave as soon as you get in it. Don't fumble around with your smartphone, purse, lipstick or anything.

Agreed

Look around you and in the back seat of your car when you are leaving. Get in, lock doors, seat belt, ignition, and go. You can stop somewhere else to check your stuff.
