The man convicted of shootings during the 2010 Indiana Black Expo Summer Celebration that left at least nine people wounded in downtown Indianapolis was arrested Wednesday night after a police chase on the city’s northwest side. Shamus Patton, 20, and two other men were taken into custody after the pursuit. Police said it began with an attempted traffic stop. When the chase ended at 25th Street and Falcon Drive, police discovered two guns in the vehicle. Patton was sentenced to eight years in prison for aggravated battery after the IBE shootings. He was scheduled to be released from the Indiana Department of Corrections in mid-July, but was being housed in a community transitions unit after serving only two years, eight months and 30 days.

  1. How can any company that has the cash and other assets be allowed to simply foreclose and not pay the debt? Simon, pay the debt and sell the property yourself. Don't just stiff the bank with the loan and require them to find a buyer.

  2. If you only knew....

  3. The proposal is structured in such a way that a private company (who has competitors in the marketplace) has struck a deal to get "financing" through utility ratepayers via IPL. Competitors to BlueIndy are at disadvantage now. The story isn't "how green can we be" but how creative "financing" through captive ratepayers benefits a company whose proposal should sink or float in the competitive marketplace without customer funding. If it was a great idea there would be financing available. IBJ needs to be doing a story on the utility ratemaking piece of this (which is pretty complicated) but instead it suggests that folks are whining about paying for being green.

  4. The facts contained in your post make your position so much more credible than those based on sheer emotion. Thanks for enlightening us.

  5. Please consider a couple of economic realities: First, retail is more consolidated now than it was when malls like this were built. There used to be many department stores. Now, in essence, there is one--Macy's. Right off, you've eliminated the need for multiple anchor stores in malls. And in-line retailers have consolidated or folded or have stopped building new stores because so much of their business is now online. The Limited, for example, Next, malls are closing all over the country, even some of the former gems are now derelict.Times change. And finally, as the income level of any particular area declines, so do the retail offerings. Sad, but true.
