Whats with Universal and being in the middle of these crimes? First the fugitive and now this!! Now I am not saying that Universal has bad security or anything like that or that its their fault, but I am suprised with the amount of crime related incidents that have taken place around the area! Is it just luck or is there a reason it just so happens at this location?
I was just suprised the first time there was a fugitive from the law running through Citywalk and this is even more shocking!
Not too long ago there were people arrested for a knife fight at Pleasure Island....no place is sacred, not even disney.
That was the reasoning I was looking for, thanks Erik!
Anthony, the fugitive that ran through USO property had nothing to do with OSO. It started off the property and the dude was on the run. He probably ran through the Hess station and by some other business there too. What's up with that? My point is your comments (and everybody else that makes comments like that) are kind of way out in left field. USO had nothing to do with that and the shooting.
Exactly Mark. And if you seperate yourself, such as disney has, the probability of that being later rather than sooner is great. Perfect example right here: I havent slept in the past 24 hours. A man drove into my front yard and into my palm trees at about 12 o clock last night. Come to find out, this same man started about 10 miles north and proceeded to hit one car, damaging it. Proceeded, hit another car, with the couple now in critical condition. Proceeded, bounced off a cop car. Proceeded, ended up in my yard. Point is, that things will happen. It was no fault of mine that it happened, it just did because of where I live. Now had I lived out west where no one else does, away from the highway.....this would not have happened. Disney had the right idea when they stole all that land from the Indians, farmers and lawyers.
This is no more an indication of anything specific to Universal than the recent parking toll booth robberies at DL are an indication of anything specific to Disney.
I know how they got the land...yes it was pretty much fair, at the time. And of course you hear anti disney sentiment....you always hear it with me! I just love how the disney fans (not on this board) are coming out of the woodwork about Universal needing to be bulldozed.
It is very common for people to purchase land via assumed names. Celebrities do it, but so do normal people. Normally, they do it with their attorney's name to keep the land value from increasing. In no way is that stealing, but it is just not letting the land value increase artificially.
