“But if they want to hang out they’ll have to show ID.”
I don’t understand how they can restrict people from coming to the mall based on age. I remember the Stop and Go near the library had a “No more than 3 unaccompanied children” rule during the summer. I know that the Mall is private property, but isn’t it also a public accommodation.
They are opening themselves up for some really bad press and possible legal action. Why not just kick out the kids who are misbehaving, and leave the others alone. Why target an entire class of people?
