The responsibility for the crime of theft lies with the thief. Always. However, if you keep a gun on your person or vehicle for your own safety, leaving it unsecured will absolutely degrade your safety by degrading the safety of society around you. Yes it is exhausting outwitting scumbags, but that's the hand we're dealt.
yeah, if overpriced food and no seating is a good business plan, I wouldn't know the proper way to run a restaurant
I'm sure theft at the location was a factor.
"never saw it coming....seriously?"
Hey Ima, listen here. If "visiting chef pop-up series" doesn't imply longevity, I don't know what does.
Isn't one of the gun owner narratives people own guns to prevent criminals from taking their property?
The victims of course (surely champions of personal responsibility and responsible gun ownership) being careless, and through their own pointless negligence, allowing tools designed to harm or kill to be taken from them in a way that caused no struggle or assault or battery or other trauma.
But yes, let's totally equate that to rape.
Exactly. They closed because they weren't making money. If they were profitable they would be open. They are a business not a soup kitchen.
How about if it's proven you say something false, you lose your right to free speech?
How about if it's proven your car was easily stolen because of your negligence, you lose the right to drive?
How about if it's proven you were easily raped because you were drunk and not able to clearly give or deny consent, you lose the right to accuse your rapist?
Or maybe we should blame the criminal and not the victim?
There will be more. Any place that isn't a bar won't get any support. I lived in Elliotborough for several years and it's filled with broke students who's rich parents front the ludicrous rent.
I would have guessed that CofC enrollment was much higher then vs now, only 619 more students?
Joe Riley spent years insisting on keeping jobs on the peninsula. The feds wanted to move the courthouse from downtown; Joe Riley did what it took to keep it at Four Corners. Ditto the School Board's Taj Mahal (city rented 1/3 of the space); ditto the hospital complex.
So he was wrong. Jobs without housing brought 10,000 professionals and their cars onto the peninsula every day.
The City Paper didn't see that coming any more than the rest of us did.
never saw it coming....seriously?
How about if it's proven a weapon was easily stolen because of your negligence, you lose the right to own a gun... period, the end...
If only those vehicles had been armed this wouldn't have happ...oh wait.
In other words,most of the guns were stealable because of the stupidity of the owner. How about tacking an intelligence test onto that carry-permit?
community concerns about food availability??? they closed because not enough people shopped there to support them even with a much higher-priced Harris Teeter a few blocks away, so apparently there was enough food available elsewhere. I smell political grandstanding.
Oh look! Victim blaming!
Yep. Today's curmudgeons are yesterday's rabble-rousers. So it goes. As I get older I find myself disturbingly concerned about the height of my neighbors' grass and loud motorcycles going down my street. And it seems like just a few years ago I was on those motorcycles smoking grass. Le sigh.
And also..."when that part of town came back to life." That is such a punctilious way to say "once there were fewer black people." Well done.
Travel + Leisure and Conde Nast have just voted Charleston as having the #1 food desert in the world!
Have you guys never been there? Their actual motto, which was on their shirts, was "Separating Church and State." Which is the order it goes in colloquially, as well. Not State and Church. Yes, it's a play on words.
But I guess it's irrelevant since Thin SKinsey deleted my post.
