Good job at catching the bad guys... It's unfortunate that the good guys are now shopping at Lakeside and Partridge Creek because of animals like these.

A couple of more Nobel Laureates that are products of the great Detroit public schools and the liberal welfare state. Wanna bet they don't even know who their fathers are?

Lakeside isn't what it was either. It's only a matter of time. It makes you wonder when shopping centers request bus lines NOT to stop at their location. The bus stops at Eastland are in the far corner. At Macomb Mall, SMART was requested to stop using it as a general transfer point. Most lines cross Gratiot far away from Macomb Mall. Lakeside requested SMART to stop it's shuttle service, etc. The buses that used to be a welcome carrier of customers are only getaway vehicles and carriers of crime.
