A decade ago, those concerned with mall center security worried about terrorism. Today, the threat has shifted to random shooters.
After a failed terrorist plot in 2004 to blow up a mall in Columbus, Ohio, then-attorney general John Ashcroft met with retail executives to assure them that security was the government’s top priority. The discussion has now shifted to identifying and preventing random attacks, disarming shooters and knowing how to get customers and store employees to safety in the event of a threatening situation. The scenarios are no less frightening than a large-scale terrorist attack.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly.
