Destiny USA has a new policy.
If you’re under 17 there will be a supervision requirement. The new rule comes as the shopping center deals with an increased number of incidents over the last two years.
Parents are split on the whole thing.
Kristy Zankowski and Traci Tyler both spoke with CNYCentral about the change in policy. They’ve been trying to keep their kids busy.
“Stores and what not, shop and kind of get together with their friends like I said with COVID there’s really not much to do,” explained Zankowski. “But then it’s also the stabbings, the shootings I question that too…I’m kind of in the middle.”
Tyler said that she hopes the policy has an effect. “I have mixed feelings also. I let my daughter go with friends only early mornings and early afternoons, I don’t want her to go late at night just because I hear of things going on,” she told CNYCentral.
It’s not entirely clear at this point if the policy is the right move to change the pattern of violent incidents at the mall.
