Drastic Measures

A fired-up neighborhood group is threatening to boycott the big-box Mecca that is the Edgewood Retail District if safety measures aren't beefed up in the wake of two violent attacks and thefts in the complex's parking garage. The Edgewood Safety Patrol vows to not patronize stores like Kroger and Target if more lighting, panic buttons, surveillance cameras and security personnel aren't installed before Black Friday. But some neighbors worry a boycott is the wrong approach. [Creative Loafing]
