I used to work near there, and we would get warnings a couple times per year on assaults/robberies in the mall parking lot.

As people have said, at night it gets really sketchy.

People are scared of their own shadows.

Eh, its a different world than it was a few years ago. The economy has been in the toilet for more than five years. Kids these days just don't give a #$%! and are resorting to robbing people. Robberies are getting more commonplace, frequent and brash in unexpected places in broad daylight. History repeats itself and its getting to feel like the early 90's again in terms of robbery.

When I was in high school in the late 90's and early 2000's, no one and I mean no one ever got robbed for their sneakers. Something like that was unheard of. Nowadays, kids getting robbed for their sneakers is an everyday thing from the hood to the suburbs just like how it was back in the early 90's. I don't understand why three teenagers would gang up on one dude wearing a pair of used Jordans (really?! Are three people going to rotate wearing one pair of shoes? How do you know they are your size? Even if you try to sell used Jordans on eBay they might only auction off for the grand price of $13 based on condition; Are a pair of shoes worth going to jail for a few years?!), but it happens almost everyday across the country and not just in the hood either. Increasing limited production and high price of sneakers like Jordan retros and videos on Worldstarhiphop documenting the robbing-for-sneakers trend have wannabe thugs wanting to emulate these crimes. If you don't wear overpriced Nikes, you might get robbed for your smartphone.

Everyone knows PG Plaza can be pretty unsafe. Especially if you are dumb enough to "camp out" the night before a hyped-up Air Jordan or Foamposite release.

But people shouldn't be caught sleepwalking these days. You can get robbed pretty much anywhere nowadays. My brother got robbed in broad daylight in Columbia pumping gas at a gas station at knifepoint. And no, the 'burbs aren't a place where you should be packing chrome without a permit, like some working law-abiding people's gangsta fantasies, because the police with nothing to do will get you and punish you to the maximum extent of the law. It doesn't help that there are no real self-defense laws in Maryland.

Robbers never rob someone by themselves or without a weapon. Cowards never fight fair. And it does happen in broad daylight at Arundel Mills too:

People get robbed at Columbia Mall too sometimes:

Crime is everywhere and nowhere is completely "safe" these days. I'd rather be cautious and aware of my surroundings than end up being a victim of some spandex ski-mask wearing wastes of sperm who are dying to prove to their Worldstarhiphop brainwashed homies how gangsta they are by risking spending 12+ years in prison for $20 and a dirty used pair of Jordans in a condition you could probably buy for $10 at a thrift store; $20 and dirty shoes that will probably be confiscated by the police as evidence five minutes later.
