Robbery Inside A Supermarket
Last weekend a robber went to a local Asian supermarket and robbed a female customer in the broad daylight. The supermarket video was posted on social media and provided a very clear photo of the incident. People are so angry and outraged.
In the last several years, cities in Texas including Houston, Austin and Dallas, when compared with the East and West coasts, were still considered cities with lower crime rates.
When the coronavirus pandemic hit our area, the situation changed. Many people had lost their jobs and a lot of businesses closed down. These families are still suffering today.
We very much regret that the crime in all cities has gone up, especially the cities on both the west and east coast. Many crimes in those cities occur in the mass transportation area.
We are here in the Houston International District with the size of only thirteen square miles. Yet we spend more than half a million dollars to hire a private security company in order to make up for the shortage of local police force.
The basic problem is our economic issue. When people are jobless they will risk their life to survive.
The whole country now has opened back up. We all hope the economy will come back and more people can go back to work.
