Problems at GR weren't just inside, exiting on the parking lot was taking your life in your hands. GR issues weren't so much teen related as petty criminals preying on suburbanites. I've been approached in the Walmart shopping center there by crack addicts begging for money during the day now. Avoid it.

I wrote an article back in March on the problems with teens and young adults at this mall, apparently the Mall director and Security Chief don't care about how these young folks intimidate and harrass the public shopping. If you don't wake up people you will have another old Golden Ring Mall which is long gone. WAKE UP.

Hanging @ the mall twenty years ago never. If your 14 yr old was asked to vacate the food court by an authorities figure and he disobeyed orders, then yes he should've been arrested. I am sure he had a cellphone to call you for an early pick up. Oh wait your were caught up in something else while the boy was running wildly at the mall. Sign your youth in extra curriculum activities or plan weekend adventures for them. The mall isn't the answer moms.

UPDATE (Oct. 18, 3:49 p.m.)—The mother of one of the teenagers who was charged in an incident on March 16 contacted Patch after her son appeared in court on Oct. 18. "My son never touched that officer. He never fought with that officer. That officer beat the crap out of our son. We waited for our day in court, and he was cleared from all charges," the mother said. "Any charges placed against this 14-year-old Middle River boy were proven false. My son was acquitted of every charge. Thank God we had tons of witnesses who saw what really happened. I'm just glad that the truth has come out. This officer threw my son. He was in crutches for three days and his glasses were broken." Patch has not identified the mother because the accused was a minor.
