Comment on Bottleshop cops deter grocery shoppers – claim by Kathy.

I still believe that the police at the stores is a good thing.
I can go to the store and get my milk and paper and not have a group of loud and threating people to confront to get into and out of the store.
People are respecting the police that are on patrol, both as customers to the store and the appreciation of piece of mind it gives users to the store.
Sally mentions a loss of customers. I for one do not think a separate entrance would make any difference, as I still go to the store feeling safe with the police presents, which was not there before.
