ACLU Says Md. Mall Ban On Homeless Pair Illegal

COLUMBIA, Md. (WJZ)—Kicked out for breaking the rules or for just being homeless? Stuck in the middle of that question are two homeless people and the Mall in Columbia.

Alex DeMetrick reports the mall has banned the pair, and now that banishment is being challenged.

When it’s cold, staying warm on the street isn’t easy. For two homeless people, the Mall in Columbia offered a place to get warm, buy food and even make some purchases.

“I would buy clothes at Penney’s.  Their sale prices permit me to maximize my wardrobe when you’re homeless,” said Patricia Francis. “I bought books at Borders.”

“Since I’ve been homeless, the mall’s become a point of refuge when the library is closed,” said Stephan Rabai.

But not anymore. They have been banned, and the penalty for returning:

“They will be arrested by the Howard County Police Department for trespassing on mall property,”  said Deborah Jeon, Maryland American Civil Liberties Union.

Maryland’s ACLU chapter calls that unfair.

“There haven’t been complaints against them causing any kind of disruption. So we’re not completely clear about what the wrongdoing is that they have engaged in,” Jeon said.

In printed reports, a mall spokesperson says the two people were banned because they had broken mall rules, such as leaving personal items unattended or being in non-public areas—not for being homeless.

“He said that he was ordered by his boss to ban me,” Rabai said. “He proceeded to fill out the banning notice.”

“He was unsure what to check, so he selected disturbing the peace,” Francis said.

According to the ACLU, neither of those banned carried multiple bags and bundles or asked customers for handouts.

“Now I’m banned from the mall and have no place to go,” Rabai said.

“I have been outside every since,” Francis added.

Mall management said in a prepared statement that it is offering to meet the pair to discuss the banning.

    There’s always two sides to a story. True, these homeless are entitled to come & go freely in a public place but consider this. Were they unkempt, smelly? Did they make a scene as often homeless do that are mentally ill? Being homeless one would think they would have no money to spend or very little & were just using the mall to game the system. The ACLU is know for taking & running with cases much for the effect & publicity.

    • R. M. Johnson

      They are not unkempt or smelly. They are groomed and polite people.
      Being homeless is not the same as having no money, so they have some money for food in cash from social security, as well as gift cards given to them.

      ACLU seems to be showing the Mall leadership that they are breaking a law. The Mall is not a public place. It is privately owned.

      • JKale

        There is such a thing called a privately owned public space in legal literature, which is the pretense under which a business can’t discriminate against you because of your race, gender, creed, etc. Malls fall under this category.

        If these people were relatively clean and not bothering anything, or monopolizing certain facilities, then I don’t have a problem with them being there.

      • Leave Texas Out of THIS


        Interesting point of view. I don’t believe they even mentioned trespassing, which would explain the need to take action. Poor reporting? (I’ll go review the article one more time-make sure I didn’t miss that detail)

        However, I think the ACLU would not have interceded had they properly filed a complaint against this couple.

      • turbo

        “They are not unkempt or smelly”. In the picture this is certainly true but it’s more than likely a staged photo.

      • Bernard Mc Kernan

        It is not a private place when funded by taxpayer monies. Too many of these businesses get state tax breaks to locate & operate in the state, county or cities.

      • Carmen

        Actually, it’s not a staged photo. I work in this mall and have seen this couple, even waited on them before. They are clean and well-groomed, not to mention polite. Nobody is allowed in the mall after closing hours except for employees. The law being broken is trespassing, however, I think until Columbia has a sleepover homeless shelter, the mall should make an exception (since they have been for months in the case of this couple).

    • Punky Bruster

      I would suggest the ACLU take them and let them live in the offices. They are probably well versed in the sink bath protocol so this should work out quite well.
      The ACLU staff can alternate as to who brings the day’s food in.
      Problem solved. I am soooo smart.

    • Courtney Paige

      That may have been very true in the past but we are now in a recession…..many people that have NEVER been homeless or even that poor are now. They also do not look unkempt or smelly to me. They look like nice, old people who have either fallen on some bad luck in this down economy or perhaps did not plan well enough for retirement. Either way, this sounds RIDICULOUS and if I lived near this mall I would most certainly stage a boycott!!!

    • pigeon

      I hate to admit this, especially to you, but I do agree with you about the ACLU. God does work in mysterious ways, does he not?!

    • Dave

      A mall is not a public place a mall is a privately owed business. If you are breaking the rules of the establishment you are subject to their penalties.

      Homeless or not if they stunk or not, I know many people with jobs some I work with that have very poor hygene. If they were breaking a rule of the mall then they are subject to the punishment.

      Leaving bags around is a safety issue, in this day of bomb scares etc. and if they were indeed in the restricted areas of the mall then they deserve to be banned, I am sure this isn’t the only mall in the area, learn from your mistake move on.

    • Baldev

      Of course Bernarnd you would know wouldnt you. I am just thinking are you stable Bernard or just a member of the public who is ignorant and self centered, as people of your leaning usually are. Do you take a shower everytime you go out of your home or do you smell like a rotten egg everytime you live your home, because Bernard sometimes people like you do not like washing themselves because they cannot smell their own stink.
      The ACLU for your information Bernard would defend someone as ignorant as you even at the expense of bad publicity, just as you describe.

      • Bernard Mc Kernan

        Excuse me but what was your point?……Empty drums make the most noise but rarely contribute something of substance.

    • Steve

      …how does this effect u? How does effect the mall? The article states that they spend money, no disruption…. Why do you ASSUME that they smell or are mentally ill?
      I have u been homeless. I have. I’ve lived on the streets and have fed out of dumpsters. I now EARN a six figure income…

  • Megan

    I don’t even go to the Mall in Columbia much anymore. I do most of my shopping online. I find it very uncomfortable to walk through the mall on the weekend and see the Howard County Police. Don’t get me wrong. I support the police but I don’t want to go to a mall where they HAVE to be because of the teenagers using it as their hangout spot. Even during the weekday hours it is getting scary. I was getting my sons stroller out of the car in Jan ’10 in the upstairs, just outside of Macy’s in Columba, when I saw 6 young black men (stating a fact, not being racist) running out of the mall. They had just robbed the Apple Store. If it wasn’t for me pointing out their mini van with D.C. tags, mall security and police would have had a much harder time finding them (having to look at security cameras takes time). I didn’t even get a verbal thank you from mall security for my assistance. They were obviously aware that mall security is not willing to do anything and there are no real police at the mall at that time of day. I called the Security Office a few days after this incident to express my displeasure and of course, my message was never returned. After the professor was killed at the Towson Town Ctr, just doing some Christmas shopping, I stay away from there as well. They are both very nice, clean malls with upscale stores. They need to keep the trash OUT!!!!!!!!

    • Oh You Poor Little Racists

      Wah wah wah, me me me. What does your whining have to do with this story? How are the people in this story “trash”? Dehumanizing others is just a way to hate without having to have any conscience about it.

      I hope the economy teaches you a badly needed lesson in compassion very soon. In the meantime, keep doing your shopping online. The malls are much nicer places without prissy, self-centered, racist whiners clogging them up.

    • blanche

      nothing like a finger pointer and come on was it really 6 young black men? why would 6 young men of any color rob a store wouldnt it be easier to work alone or in a pair also megan you better hope nobody reconizes your post you may be in for an ass whipping for running your mouth

      • Scott's County

        Blanche, you are the typical kind of violent trash that makes the point of view of people on here legitimate. No one but you has threatened violence. Your resorting to violent threats only supports my view on violent ghetto trash like you. Solve all your problems by being violent.

      • JQP

        Right, and people like ANN are angels. OH, and you’re one to talk SCOTT’S COUNTY. Holy moly! “violent ghetto trash”? my god! what kind of civilized person uses phrases like that… what else can I find… hmm….”you damn communist”, “if this were Texas, get the f-ck out!”, “low class loud ignorant black gang trash”, my oh my! What a fine example of human compassion, you are! OH RIGHT, this isn’t Disney Land where liberal democrat nig’r loving communists rule and everyone treats each other with kindness and good will .. sorry, I was sure that’s where I was…. grow up.

    • lavender jones

      if you’re not being racist, then why did it matter that they were “black” men? Isnt the fact that they are young men descriptive enough?

    • How is this relevant

      So how does this relate to the story above? You’re uncomfortable with increasing levels of violence at the locals malls… sooo… ummm… HOW DOES THIS RELATE TO THE HOMELESS COUPLE? Silly old lady.

  • Bernie

    Megan, Thank you for providing that service, you are a brave & strong woman. I share your feelings of frustration & I once a mall rat rarely venture into a mall. Towsontowne with the exception of the horrendous parking is pretty secure most of the time but I would still never go there after dark. Because you will meet Dark people!

    • baldev

      Bernie, I love dark people but stay away from trailer trash. like Megan like you.

  • Scott's County

    All agreed upon, Megan. You hit the point exactly. Because of the politically correct tyranny of Ultra-Liberal, America–we’re not supposed to speak our minds with logic openly. But, I will! Unfortunately, most violent armed robberies in our region are carried out by black males between age 16 and 30. Therefore, it is logical and reasonable to have fear of and suspicion of them. Of, course most white women who are violently attacked are mostly likely to have had a white male as their offender, but in your case you were right on. Again, as for these homeless people, they have no right to squat on private property. If the ACLU gets it’s way, persons who have committed violence inside a mall like a shooting, would have right to come back also. In addition, taking away the mall’s private property owners rights rights could lead to the danger of someone coming into your house or apartment and just move on in. Remember, we are talking about private property here–not public! The Mall in Columbia has a right to keep itself in business because once undesirables like homeless squatters move in–customers will start staying away and the mall and its stores will loose business and money. This is what destroyed and is now closing Owings Mills Mall. Low class loud ignorant black gang trash from the city just started coming up there and loitered all day being obnoxious and criminal. Business was hurt badly by the wealthy high class people staying away and now Owings Mills Mall is a dead mall.

    • Oh You Poor Little Racists

      “If the ACLU gets it’s way, persons who have committed violence inside a mall like a shooting, would have right to come back also.”

      Your stupidity is a marvel to behold.

      May your obnoxious elitism and blatant racism bring you much poetic justice.

      • LadyA

        cc, the reason you don’t see any white thugs around is because they dress like business people, and steal your money! Bernie Madoff is just a drop in the bucket. If you want to REALLY blame people for ruining this country, look to the CEO’s on Wall Street and the heads of the oil companies and banks! They are the reason so many of us are having trouble making ends meet. Prices go up and so do their paychecks!

      • cc

        you seriously need to go away and i could say more , but people like you are just so horrid and vulgar…you are an obnoxious little twit….you come on these posts and stir up hate , havent you got a suppose you are one of those bacl thugs that are ruining this country….shame on you decrepid little creature….

      • cc

        and yes i mean one of those BLACK thugs…i dont see many white ones around ….gang bangers that is…..and yes i am talki g directly to the one who thinks everyone on the planet is a racist….were not we just dont like YOU

      • Oh You Poor Little Racists

        I’m white and female, you whiny little racist. I’m not sure what other points you’re trying to make since you can barely spell or string together a coherent sentence. If that’s not a product of your innate stupidity, then come back when you’re no longer under the influence and can do more than impotently splutter.

  • Sheila

    Well said Scott…..Golden Ring Mall closed because people stopped going there because of loud, obscene, obnoxious teens (black and white). Eastpoint Mall has the same problem. My family does not go there after dark…………

  • Tyrone

    Well said Scott?????????. As always blame it on the poor disadvantaged blacks.

    • dani mallon

      actually we don’t have to blame anything on any one if you would simply be responsible and pay for what you want instead of stealing it and i am not talking about you personally here but any person out in the world who thinks it is ok to steal swindle and be malicious to another person or property then it would be a lot better place in the world and b4 you make a comment i live in an area where you need to check the scanner to make sure it is safe not because of the police but because of the criminal element outside my front door

  • A Columbia Mom

    I can’t believe the comments, why are most supposed to be educated people so ignorant. Yes, I say this because you are. People assume that they can pick out someone who is homelss just by looking at them. Hello world do you realized that the average homeless person looks just like you and I. You co worker could be homelss. Look at our economy people are loosiing their jobs, homes everthing and all you can do I judge. Columbia has a big homelss problem yeah you would never know. I think is is discriminotory for someone to try to exclude someone becuase of the fack that they are homeless. I have worked in a few homeless shelters, and the people that come in are mostly women with children and families. Yes some have mental health issures but that isn’t the majority. Instead of criticizing the homelss why don’t you call a homeless shelter up see if they need volunteers or if their are some supplies that are needed, Trust me you will feel better about yourself, and lets just hope and pray you never end up in that situations.

    • whatnow

      Come sit on the light rail with these “homeless” people. They laugh about how they get over on do-gooders like you. Come work downtown and try to sit outside on a nice day on a bench. The stench of the “homeless” and their urine everywhere is disgusting. When need to go back to the pre-1960’s when families could have the mentally ill and drug addicted involuntarily committed for their safety and for ours.

    • Rita

      I agree with you, I grew up in a small town in WV. WV is known for coal miners and coal truck drivers. They Dept store that I worked in all my fellow employees would run the other way if they say one of them come in the store in dirty clothes, but these guys were just getting off work. Since we worked on commission my colleges assumed these people were homeless and would not wait on them. But in fact 90% were not homeless or smelly they just had their work clothes on and they would spend a lot of money making purchases. So I agree there are 2 sides to every story and I hate shopping at the columbia mall it is always packed with kids and teenagers and skate boarders outside. I would rather shop on line then go to the columbia mall.

      • charleton

        Rita, Columbia is not W. Va. ok. No coal mine here, Just plenty of Blacks on welfare.

    • Stand for what's right!

      I stand in agreement with this comment. Whatever happened to Love thy neighbor? even if thy neighbor is homeless.

      Volunteering to help out someone else is an excellent idea!. Takes the focus of self and onto others.

      What these people fail to see is that what goes around comes around. How you treat others just may come back on you. Good or Bad.

      None of us are ammune from having the same plight fall on us. So, count our blessings and don’t look down on someones misfortune that may become your future.

    • Thank You

      Well said. There but for the grace of God goes these heartless snobs. You’d think people would understand, seeing what has happened with this economy, that no one is safe from losing their home. And these are human beings we are talking about. People need to stop snivelling over someone who is different to or less fortunate than them.A little compassion from these smug ivory tower denizens would go a long way.

    • H

      I support the homeless in their stuggle, and I hope that I never have that problem. That being said, the mall is PRIVATE PROPERTY has the right to remove ANYONE.

  • Scott's County

    This is not an argument about homeless people, but them not having a right to squat all day in a privately owned shopping mall! I have feelings of concern for them, but I’m not such an ultra-liberal Democrat to think that they can just squat anywhere! What are you implying? That the homeless have rights above others to protect their own property? You actually saying that if homeless persons decides to set up a squatter cardboard box camp on my front lawn that I must let them stay? Your ultra-liberal Walt Disney fantasy to everything is really disturbing! You damn Communist!

    • Corrin

      You made it about blacks! When the story is about 2 WHITE homless, older people. If you want the banning rights to stay with the malls (which I am fine with) then you should be advocating that they step-up and play fair in ejecting people, and maybe try prioritizing who they ban in relation to who ACTUALLY causes a loss in business. In your 2 hour trip to the mall, who would you notice/stay away from more? 2 older people or the loud, obxnoxious group of kids screaming and cat-calling? I am just as Republican as the next person. You talk about a slippery slope in letting them stay there? How about the slippery slopes you’re treading down? Your right-wing extremist opinions are a disgrace to the rest of us reasonable Republicans who can draw a line and stick to it.

  • KottaMan

    To a Columbia Mom: You stated, “People assume that they can pick out someone who is homeless just by looking at them. Hello world do you realized that the average homeless person looks just like you and I.” While you may dream that this is the case, it is most of the time simply not true. Having policed for years, I can tell you without hesitation that the chronically homeless DO look different and DO act differently. I reference the ‘chronically’ homeless as these are the exact people who use malls to spend their day especially in bad weather, etc. It is NOT the mall’s responsibility to house these folks who could be either working or spending their time in a homeless shelter.

    While a mall may be “open to the public” they are still PRIVATE property and if I were a tenant seeing a decrease to my business because of rowdies, roughhousing teenagers, homeless folks or whatever, I would look to the mall management to fix it. It is a proven fact that people shop where they feel safe and reasonably comfortable. To deny this is against all polls ever taken on the subject. As you live in VERY liberal Columbia with its exceedingly high income level, I suggest that YOU give or volunteer to help YOUR own homeless.

    • MaryM

      These people were not doing anything offensive. Do you also resent the retirees who go to the mall strictly to walk for exercise? Should we have to show a credit card and receipts to prove intent to shop and completion of shopping? Yes there are dirty, drugged, bi-polar homeless people sitting alone talking to themselves downtown and about who may or may not be dangerous. These people are not that sort. Maybe you would prefer a world that only served white bread and always had blue skies where you would never have to be faced with the awful facts of awful things happening to nice people. It isn’t going to happen here in this economy. Have a heart.

      • petfriend

        The charges stated that they had left packages unattended…now days that could cause an evacuation, police and fire and bomb squad deployment and a huge cost and inconvenience and interuption to the businesses in the mall. It also states they were in non public access areas. If in fact those things are true, and this is a matter for the courts to decide I guess, than the mall is well within their rights to ban them for creating a public nusance by those actions. If they appeared as they do here and were simply eating, shopping and hanging around when in the mall as they have stated, I would doubt they were singled out and just being harrassed. It seems more likely that some actions occurred on their part to have caused the mall to act.

      • withavengeance

        @ MaryM: I resent your use of the term bipolar in that way. You only help perpetuate the stigma that people with bipolar ILLNESS are dangerous and homeless and worse.

    • H

      Well said

    • PDQ

      …and if the mall said they had to leave because they were Jewish, that would be ok, too?

  • A Columbia Mon

    To Kotto Man:
    Thanks you just proved my point, there are too many so called educated but ignorant people in this world. I assume you can read because if you did I said that I have worked in several homelss shelters in the past. And also to point out I am not sure where you get you facts, but the average homeless person does looke like you and I, america just doen’t want to believe it. You know your right on one thing there are a lot of chronically homeless people out there also, most have mental and or drug issues and by reading the article it doesn’t mention this, but if I am sure if you properly read the article it also stated that they shoped and ate at the mall. It doesn’t sound like chronically homless people it sounds like the average homeless person who is just down on their luck.

    Also to the nuckle head, where does it said that they were squating, OMG some people go to the extreme just to proved how ignorant they are. A mall and your home are too diffrent places.

  • Scott's County

    Let’s all take Columbia Mom back to Disney World everyone. Apparently, she found life there happy and fair unlike the real world in we all must live.

      in case you hadn’t noticed, not “everyone” agrees with you. it must have been nice for you to think that you were special for just one shining moment.

  • Cathy

    Obviously these people are not straight from the hood. They should have help right away. Ho.Co. is rough on everyone that is out of place.To the point of crule

  • j

    all these people with these insensitive remarks-hope you are never in such a position. The economy has left a lot of people homeless who never thought they would be. I don’t see anything wrong as long as they were not bothering anyone. Anyone causing disturbances should be banned-homeless or not

  • George Mouring

    I find most of the peoples comments here, repulsive and snobbish. You show absolutely no compassion for your fellow man, none! It’s says in the bible, judge not, lest ye be judged. You don’t know why those folks are homeless, there may be good reason for it. MOre than likely because of republican snobs like you. What’s wrong folks, looking at them force you to have a conscience, to feel, ? It’s a damn shame, I remind you, it was republican greed and policies that put us where we are today. You snobby SOB’s should be drawn and quartered for what you’ve done to this country, not racisist, my butt!

    • No Worries

      Their time is coming. Anyone with an ear to the ground can hear the shake-up that’s coming, and these selfish, oblivious pigs will be the first to suffer when it happens.

    • Some One

      I Truely agree with you George nobody knows what some elses situation and they forget it can happen to them. Yet they do not choose to believe that it can people are selfish these days and has no morals its already depressing for them not to have a home for what ever reason it may be it dont mean they are any less of a person than you and I grow up you morons.

  • Cathy

    Ho.Co needs to be rough for the most part. There are some that take things too far.Ya just can’t pick and choice.Did these people take things to far?

  • Cathy

    Let me explain a little more

    Mall management has a right to ban people that become nussence. I know this first hand. All it takes is not to be a bother. And when the time of ban is up you need to write a letter in order not to have security called on you.

    No pan handling-No walking in the back halls of the mall no drinking in public…

    There are some that I know that have basicilly been banned for life.The second some of these people turn up on a property owned by(iI don’t know anymore)the security is around to call the P.D.

    It is crule. But some people keep turning up DRUNK and others do things their not suppose to.It’s really hard to get by when band from a shopping center where one needs to BY food.And you don’t have a car. I always thought the rule(NOT LAW) harsh. Far to Harsh for some that really don’t deserve it. But SOME PEOPLE DO DESERVE NOT TO BE ABLE TO be on theses proprties. If this couple is who I think they are. I hope they are alright their friend is okay

    • ha ha

      doesn’t anyone know how to spell the word “cruel”?

  • Ozzy

    I just wish Columbia Mom could spell. Then maybe I could take her seriously.

  • MaryM

    I don’t understand what they did. It seems to be okay with the mall to have retirees going there just to walk around for exercise…NOT purchasing. These are not the typical homeless people, they are clean and decently dressed simply looking for a place to be warm. Hasn’t life kicked them about enough? It reminds me of a PETA fanatic who complained bitterly about homeless people sleeping on the park benches. What is wrong with this society. It is awful to kick a dog but a human is fair game?????

    • petfriend

      well as I commented above it does say they were leaving packages unattended, which could create quite an evacuation and police/fire involvement etc due to thoughts of bombs etc these days., It also said they were entering private areas. Those things could interfere with the shops ability to do business and would therefore rightly result in a ban. If they were just haninging out it is unlikely anything would have occurred.

    • Me

      Thank God for decent, intelligent people like you.

  • Orie

    Seriously, start checking your articles for errors

    “He was unsure what to check, so he selected disturbing the piece,” Francis said.

  • KottaMan

    All the ‘real’ facts of the banning are not in this article and you can rest assured that the ACLU will paint this couple as the “poster children” for the homeless. Also, what better way to get free press than to have a WHITE couple who are victims. It stretches credibility to have the Mall just be mindreaders to “know” that this couple, older, VERY CLEAN in the video, and soft-spoken, were ‘homeless’ and banned them for it. There MUST be more to this banning than the ACLU is admitting. Some on here say it is rough being homeless in Howard County. I agree but remind everyone that HoCo is one of the MOST affluent counties in the U.S. AND has always bent over backwards for the underdog as it is very very liberal. At least the Columbia area is. That is why there has always been friction between it and the rest of the county especially the western end.

  • Cathy

    What may b the problem is these people may need help but not from the ACLU. A plan lawyer will do. All colors are band. White Black it doesn’t matter. The ACLU is trying to make up lost ground in my view. Their already here because of the black white thing.Can anyone remember when the ACLU stuck up publicly for white people. Brownie points.I don’t even thing these people need legal aid at all. There is a miss understanding that has been missed.And security being bullies.Nothing like a rent a cop with power.

  • Doug

    The scary thing here,

    If you’re going to waste tax dollars to arrest them,
    why not help them instead.

  • whatnow

    The mall said they kept roaming around in back areas that is only for employees. They said on TV that occasionally they would buy something at Penny’s. If you are really homeless, why are you shopping at Penny’s. Go to WalMart. They sure cleaned up nice. There is something fishy here.

  • Ann

    I have seen these two at Columbia Mall for years. The woman looks quite sedate in this picture but most of the time looks like a circus clown ,heavy make up carrying brand name shopping bags stuffed full. She gives a penetating stare and smirk if you stare at her strange outfits. I suspect that these people need to be treated for mental illness. It is not the malls problem. The mall is private property and the homeless and mentally ill should not be allowed to lloiter.Normal people also have righs or do the liberal forget that Fact .

    • You Are A Moron

      “The woman looks quite sedate in this picture but most of the time looks like a circus clown ,heavy make up carrying brand name shopping bags stuffed full. ”

      Yes, let’s kick them out for not looking the way you like people to look. And if you were shooting me judgmental looks, I’d smirk back at you too. What do you look like? Cellulite-riddled white cow with a pretzel stuffed in your face as you wander around looking to sate the endless black hole of your brainless materialism? Get over yourself, idiot.

        there was a time when people wouldn’t leave the house without dressing up. today your lucky if they get out of their pajamas. How about that hot number getting her nicotine fix at 5 am in the convinence store.

      So sorry to offend you. As I am old and do not see well sometimes I leave letters out inadverently. You should get your anger under control and possibly up your medicatio.

        You should get your snobbery under control. And you can see well enough to judge what someone else is wearing – as if that’s ANY of your concern in the first place. Why are you staring at her outfits? Are you the mall fashion police? You’re allowed to stare at her, but she isn’t allowed to stare back? You’re a nasty, snobby old bat.

      Awww, you poor thing! It must be so trying for you to have to see people that make you uncomfortable while you’re trying to enjoy all your money. I can’t even tell you how I feel for you… sad.. so sad that these relatively clean, and otherwise harmless people who are trying to maintain some sense of dignity by wearing clean clothes would have the audacity to mar your shopping experience. They are terrible people that must be stopped…. is that too “liberal” for ya, there, Ann?

      p.s. my teen aged niece can buy a new pair of jeans ever month, that doesn’t mean she makes enough money to rent an apartment. what do you want from them? you want them dirty and smelly wearing rags or clean, maintained and tying to keep it together…. what do you want?
