A Better Mid-South: Don't let irresponsible criminals stop you from living

MEMPHIS, TN -

Editorial by Tracey Rogers, Action News 5 general manager:

(WMC-TV) - A shooting at a Memphis shopping mall made national headlines last week. I think we can all agree that is not the way we want to be in the national headlines.

The shooting at Oak Court Mall appears to be between two people who knew each other and had a fight over a gang issue and a stolen t-shirt.

I'm sure you paused a moment to think about whether it is safe to shop at Oak Court Mall now.

We all know crime can happen anywhere and you should always be conscious of your safety. Bottom line: You cannot let an irresponsible person with a gun dictate how you live your life. We must refuse to let criminals run our city.

I plan to shop at Oak Court Mall and I hope you do too.

Will you keep shopping at Oak Court Mall? Tell me why or why not by email at wmceditorials@wmctv.com or go to Facebook and like my page, A Better Mid-South and post a comment there.

Show the criminals you are not afraid. Stand up for your neighborhood and make this A Better Mid-South.
