Kroger on Monroe Street was our primary shopping location for years. Over the last 5 years or more it has steadily declined. I just read where a 93 year old woman was assaulted by two girls attempting to steal her purse last Sunday night (below).
There have been times where my wife and I still have to go to Kroger. I can't tell you how often we have witnessed behavior in the parking lot that just makes us shake our heads.... women screaming F'bombs at their infants, men "if they can be called that" calling their girlfriend Bit**, or people arguing on the phone like they are on the Jerry Springer show.
In fairness I can't blame Kroger for the obscenities and behavior of their shoppers but they must address the increased safety concerns at their location! They should also be concerned about how trashy they allow the parking lot to become. There was so much debris and filth in the lot one night that I asked for a manager hoping to walk out to the lot with them but they had already gone home for the night (presumably walking right through the debris)
93 Year old woman being dragged... I'm tempted to also start a separate thread on just how lame the Government has been concerning the increasing drug epidemic as they place more emphasis on bullying and nutrition...
